Lulleaux Sober Missing You

'Sober' & 'Missing You': Lulleaux Supplies Two Certifiable Summer Bops

Meet Lulleaux. He's Dutch! And a DJ-slash-producer. The rising star doesn't need much of an introduction for the electronic super-nerds out there: he's already racked up over 1.9 million monthly listeners on Spotify with original tracks like "Contact" and "All The Kids," as well as remixes for the…


Alice 2018

Is Alice About to Save Pop?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=gl-joRBUP38 Normally, I wouldn't get ahead of myself with an "Introduucing..." so soon. But after watching this teaser, reading her mission statement and combing through the pre-debut archives...I'm intrigued. Alice (alice) is a yet-to-debut pop star…

'The Venus Project: Vol 1': Georgia Nott, of BROODS, Is Tired of Being the Only Woman in the Room

Georgia Nott, one-half of brother-sister duo BROODS, is breaking up the boys club. Allow this guy to mansplain. (Also: consider this less of an Introduucing, and more of a Reintroduucing.) After years of touring and recording as BROODS, Georgia noticed that she was often stuck in an exclusively…


Madeline Juno's 'Salvation': A Breath of Fresh Berlin Air

"Someone's always loving more, and that someone's me. I guess I never learn..." It's been a while since I accidentally stumbled on music that I really love, as opposed to shoveling through heaps of press releases in search of a sign of life that makes me feel something more than "that'll do."…


Introduucing...Samantha Urbani!

Meet Samantha Urbani. If you're a fan of Dev Hynes (or Blood Orange), you're probably already familiar with the singer-songwriter/Friends frontwoman because of her many contributions to Dev's Cupid Deluxe, including the vocals on "You're Not Good Enough." That being said, she's yet to release her…


Introduucing...Aaron Pfeiffer!

Meet Aaron Pfeiffer, a Pittsburgh-bred singer-songwriter currently living in New York City. Now, full disclosure: I've known Aaron for more than a minute now IRL after being introduced by my BFF, Jon ALi. As a rising artist on his grind, Aaron's been busting his butt performing up and down the…


Turkish Pop Star Atiye Makes Her US Debut With "Come To Me": Premiere

Meet Turkish pop star, Atiye. Atiye has been described as "The J.Lo of Turkey" in her official press release, which is an incredible description, so I'm just going to take as an objective fact. The German-born songstress dropped her debut album at 17 years old with Sony Records, followed by a…


Introduucing...Emilie Esther, Winner Of 'X Factor Denmark'!

By now, it's a fairly established fact that The X Factor series, more than most TV talent show competitions, really does supply massively talented performers and groups: One Direction (RIP, too soon), Cher Lloyd, Fifth Harmony, Leona Lewis, Little Mix, Samantha Jade...all big pop stars from all…


Introduucing...Honor!

Meet Honor, an elusive chanteuse with an even more elusive USB drive. See, Honor has a rather intriguing discovery story that doesn't involve being spotted performing at a local bar or racking up followers on YouTube. Well...not exactly, anyway. As legend would have it, YouTuber Luke Cutforth…


Introduucing...Anna Naklab!

Meet Anna Naklab. Or, well, meet her voice, anyway. She doesn't have any promotional photos just yet. In fact, the vocalist has been pretty enshrouded in mystery ever since her career took off last year with a dance floor-friendly cover of Chris Isaak's "Wicked Games" with Parra for Cuva, which…


Introduucing...CAPPA!

Meet CAPPA, born Carla Cappa. Having already released a debut LP (You Never Got Me) nearly 6 years ago, as well as a few spare singles like 2013's "My Heart Is Beating Again", the Nashville-based songstress has since ditched the last name and kicked off a brand new project as CAPPA. (A good ol'…


Introduucing...Max Elto!

Meet Alexander Ryberg & Tom Liljegren, the Swedish duo known as Max Elto. You might have already heard them once on David Guetta's "Just One Last Time," credited as Taped Rai. They've since changed their name to Max Elto — a LYLAS to Fifth Harmony situation, basically. Together, they make very…
