“Sound Explorer”: Christos Doukakis

Electric Kif & Aaron Parks
(nu jazz, math rock)
Quick pitch: With its syncopated beat, deeply layered synthesizers, and epic form, Dreamlike offers a trippy, multi-dimensional listening experience. A genuine blend of nu jazz & math rock!
Chuck the Show
Quick pitch: ‘The Hangover Song’ is a feel good song about feeling terrible. “As the title suggests, the song walks through the various events pre and post hangover. Overall I feel it now more than ever as I come into my mid-20’s and no longer have the 19-21 year old tolerance that I used to.” A rare example of hip-hop ideally mixed with the comedy element!

(art pop, neoclassical)
Quick pitch: German art pop trio Mayuko releases ‘Breathe’, its second track along with a colorful, kaleidoscopic video. Sticking to their dark and fragile, yet powerful and delicate sound, Mayuko ponder the discomfort and complacency of being reminded to come back to oneself and essential things of life.
