Wilsonn adds a music video to his fantastic mixtape 'Thankful'

Wilsonn adds a music video to his fantastic mixtape 'Thankful'

Wilsonn has been impressing us all with his Neo-soul music, specifically his most recent mixtape 'Thankful'. A sweet un-official mixtape derived from the work of Australian Producer Feki with lyrics and melody by Attlas Co-writer Wilsonn. 

Now, Wilsonn makes us feel thankful for not only good music but beautiful artwork with the music video he released to go along with the mixtape. A simple time lapse of artist, Nathan Tambiah, drawing the cover art for 'Thankful'. The cover art it's self is a beautiful artwork, but watching it being made with the wonderful song really gives the artwork a deeper meaning.

Music video released for Ric Rufio's single 'So Wonderful'

Music video released for Ric Rufio's single 'So Wonderful'

Remember that time in the 90's and early 2000's where CGI music videos were the biggest thing? Like the music video for 'Blue Da Ba Dee'? Good times! Upcoming Artist Ric Rufio released his new single 'So Wonderful' and it sounds so funky. Just the other day a music video was released for it and it matches the funk so well.

The music video for 'So Wonderful' is a trippy black and white CGI experience just like this old 90's music videos. And I couldn't be any happier to have this genre of music video back. So many memories of jamming out to these music videos are coming back to me as I watch 'So Wonderful'. Triple J Unearthed seems to be loving Ric Rufio at the moment and so am I!

Neosoul artist Wilsonn blows our mind's with new single 'Thankful'

Neosoul artist Wilsonn blows our mind's with new single 'Thankful'

Looks like soul music is back in trend and there is no better way to start it with the amazing artist Wilsonn releasing his newest single 'Thankful'. 'Thankful' is un-official mixtape derived from the work of Australian Producer Feki with lyrics and melody by Attlas Co-writer Wilsonn. The track comes as part of the anticipated 'Idiocentric Mixtape' Series which is a project developed in order to remix popular instrumentals by artists such as Taku, Feki, Ste Louse and more – adding new melodies and dynamic into music that already exists.

'Thankful' has the soothing sounds and gorgeous vocals to make anyone thankful to be alive in this time that Wilsonn is. Even though Wilsonn is singing about a lovely lady, it makes me thankful for everyone in my life. The inspiring upbeat synths make me smile so much. I had the worst day today and the moment this song was shown to me, I forgot about anything bad that happened and a smile appeared on my face. Everything about this song is impressive, from the well timed breaks to the powerful lyrics to the handsome vocals to the cute little laugh hidden in the middle.

Froyo releases fun synth pop single 'Darling'

Froyo releases fun synth pop single 'Darling'

I feel like I've been taken back to a prom night in the 80's.

FROYO has been creating a storm in the synth pop world with their 2016 single 'Pride' and they just created a hurricane with their latest single 'Darling'. A fun song that makes me want to slow dance with the girl I've been crushing on for the past year. The retro style song is on the same lines of Passion Pit and M83. If you're on your way back home after an amazing night out, this is the song to put on. 

FROYO is a four piece band that accumulated in late 2013 after meeting at uni. Since that moment they have achieved a lot including being named in the top 5 finalists of Triple J’s Play School Remix competition, a Triple J Unearthed Feature Artist, and opening the main stage for Triple J Unearthed at The Plot Festival in November. And now FROYO's latest single 'Darling' has reached #1 on Triple J Unearthed's Dance charts! 'Darling' has also acquired some impressive review by the people at Triple J Unearthed including KLP, Nat Tencic, and Bridget Hustwaite

Let’s blow off prom and drive up to make-out point in your Cadillac. It’s my first kiss and our small town looks so pretty from up here, and this is on the radio and the moment couldn’t be more cinematic.
— Nat Tencic

'The Goods' releases new single 'Make Your Move' with an eye catching music video

'The Goods' releases new single 'Make Your Move' with an eye catching music video

Sexy electronic soul. Pretty lights. Clever use of symmetry. 

Check it out! Upcoming artists, The Goods, are hitting the electronic soul scene with a bang with their new single 'Make Your Move'. A super catchy song with amazing use of synths and beats reminiscing the good times had with Gorillaz and Outcast. The single has the talents of Bangaltar, D'Awesome, and Black Tree on vocals. 'Make Your Move' was premiered on Triple J's Goodnights with Linda Marigliano and also Home & Hosed with Dom Alessio. This amazing song has also been played on 2017 by Richard Kingsmill which is a big achievement! 

The music video for 'Make Your Move' is stunning. It shows the three members out on the town of Sydney's night life. While there is no night clubs in the video (which is a very nice change seeing how most music videos have night club scenes in them), there is amazing shots of them at the local arcade playing laser tag and riding dodgem cars. The whole Idea is a lot of fun and the music to go along with it makes it feel like a memorable night adventure. The film was directed and edited by Gabe Gasparinatos. It also has a very clever use of still shots taken by Doron Losky & Sebastian Robert. One thing I was very fond of about the music video was the fact the director payed a fair bit of attention to keeping things somewhat symmetrical and used lighting in a way most people wish they could.

One of a kind music video 'Contest' released by This Week in the Universe

One of a kind music video 'Contest' released by This Week in the Universe

Did somebody say stop motion? Pizza? 80's sci-fi? Good music?

This week on earth, This Week in the Universe releases their new music video 'Contest'. This video is a work of amazing creativity shot and directed by Beau Golden, Casey Golden and Adam Barnard.

Every once in a while a low budget music video is released that completely impresses me more than anything, 'Contest' is one of those. A take on low budget 80's sci-fi, this stop motion takes us into the setting of a space ship controlled by a cool little robot guy that just wants his pizza. Sometimes while I watch music videos I have to think 'Where in the world did these people come up with this idea? It's brilliant!'. It helps that the song playing is also upbeat and catchy. As I watched this short music video I couldn't help but sit in my chair giggling like a silly goose. I don't know where it came from but I got a sense of nostalgia as I watched it as well. Clever, cute, fun, and enticingly pretty for a stop motion, these guys nail their first music spot on. 

This Week in the Universe released their self titled album just the other week and many are very impressed by the cool sounds they make from their collection of keyboards and synths. Give this music video a watch or two and have fun!

OK SURE releases super dark EP "ANAMNESIS"

OK SURE releases super dark EP "ANAMNESIS"

Honestly one of the darkest EPs I've heard in a long time. "Anamnesis" absolutely kills it. The Hermitude Remix Winner Ok Sure created this EP and put in a crazy amount of detail.

Ok Sure is known for her dark downbeat tempos and her new EP tops it. Previously known as Akaysha Davey, she gained her start in fame by winning the Pioneer Pro DJ Search in 2006 and since then has become known internationally for making some nerve racking beats. The hypnotic producer has shared stages with the likes of Crooked Colours, Habits, Paces, Kilter, Worlds End Press and Just a Gent while gaining support from fellow artists Yolanda Be Cool, The Aston Shuffle, Eric Volta and Hermitude.

Upside Music is proud to have this sick artist on board.

KRONIC'S SONG 'PUSH' FEAT FAR EAST MOVEMENT SEEN BY MILLIONS

The epic Kronic had his song 'Push feat. Far East Movement' featured in Fast and Furious 8's Super Bowl Trailer. Seen by millions around the world. This is an achievement most people dream about. 

Fast and Furious is a sick series (we all know that), but if you thought this one was just going to be an "okay" addition to the series, you thought wrong. The Trailer itself is already badass but what makes it truly badass is the sick track behind it. 

And definitely check out the song here: 'Push' feat Far East Movement - Kronic
