Nine “fresh n’ Green”, ultra tasty tunes to feed your music appetite. We are pretty confident, you don’t wanna miss those ones right?

Modest Oda – ‘Only Water’

An excellent, esoteric, indie electronic song by Austrian Modest Oda “about finding something, that seams to heal at first glance, but finally turns out to be the exact opposite”.

About Modest Oda

Modest Oda is cutting off own roots. Blurring of self-imposed boundaries. The abstraction of a voice, which – in its pure form – was heard on number 1 of the „Radio Soundportal“-charts, on the Kasematten stage in Graz, the Arena Vienna or opening up for Lola Marsh.

The origin is in 2010 and in alternative rock. Guitar and bass are now being replaced by two synthesizers, the drums are exchanged with a drum-machine. The vocals are redesigned with a combination of various effects and digital harmonies.

Control and its loss, forgetting and being forgotten are the lyrics main themes.

D’Arcy – ‘Moon’

An anthemic electro pop track with angelic vocals, about finding love and beauty in life, despite the pain that comes from letting go of childhood in order to transition to adulthood. Such a gem!

About D’Arcy

D’Arcy is your new favorite alternative act based in NYC. Her debut single “Crush” was only released in October 2020 and quickly turned heads before her debut EP, Hard to Kill, dropped August 2021. Following the success of her last single “Lover” is the recently released track, “Moon”.

From the first notes, “Moon” brings a full-bodied anthemic quality while capitalizing on the subtle, ruminative nature that sets D’Arcy apart from her contemporaries. The track has a ’90s haze that brings warmth to the crisp, cool night that is “Moon”. Her languid vocals guide each line without ever pushing or pulling. D’Arcy is proving a light touch is all it takes to bring art to that next level.

King LX is modern, expressive pop music carried by soul and R’n’B influences – easy to listen to and yet never lacking depth. Inspired by “the greats” like Sam Cooke or Prince and their own origins and deeply personal musical socialization in life.

After years of successfully working with a variety of national and globally well-known artists, KING LX has built his own kingdom, which proves itself to be just as versatile and colorful as its emperor is – as the world he lives in, his origin and his understanding of what it means to be a global citizen.

Benji Asare aka King LX gifts his songs his personal stories and delivers them with his distinctive, inimitable Soul, whilst Fayzen – the producer – provides their unique Sound that makes KING LX a project that is inevitable to miss in 2021.

Even before their first release, KING LX has attracted the attention of various music industry representatives – and with good reason: the project isn’t simply about good and catchy music. KING LX stands for diversity – in a human and musical sense, bound- and limitless. The sound of a new generation, all over the world.

Benji, born and raised in Hamburg, Germany – writes his own lyrics from an early age and takes his first steps as a musician in the local school band. At the age of 22, he gathers experience as a social worker in the US, where his boss takes him to church, and he discovers his voice and feeling for music anew. Until this day, he says these influences have “left a lasting mark on him and his music.“
