Listen to Bequem's lo-fi single: Coffee Lounge


April 2023Bequem is a one-of-a-kind artist who specializes in creating music that blurs the lines between various styles. These include lo-fi, chill-hop, as well as tropical house, and many more. On April 16, 2021, Bequem dropped a single named Coffee Lounge. This studio track stands out as a truly distinctive example of what people can expect from Bequem's music, which is very diverse, but also atmospheric and immersive as some of the best chill-wave out there. The production value is off-the-charts, as the song immediately encapsulates the staples of the lo-fi style but without being too "on the nose" about it. In other words, you can expect some calming background crackle and noise, as well as some smooth melodies and a beat that might remind you of old-school pioneers such as J Dilla, only to mention one. Ultimately, this track has a cool concept at its core. The whole vision was well-executed, making the tune far from being distinctive and personable: a true lo-fi gem. The aesthetics of the production match the creative concept of Requiem's production approach as well, as it gives the audience a truly unique perspective of what this artist is all about. "Coffee Lounge" is a perfect calling card for Bequem, and it stands out as a really good indication of the kind of mood that he really wants to portray with this particular studio work.

Coffee Lounge by Bequem is highly recommended to fans of artists as diverse as Shierro, Kavv, Azido 88, and Loky, only to mention a few. Much like the artists mentioned above, Bequem is all about turning music into something that's a lot more than plain old entertainment: it's a deeper way to connect with the audience. Unsurprisingly, he has gained a huge global audience, especially on platforms such as Spotify, where he has over 360.000 monthly listeners as we speak. This is a fantastic achievement, especially for an independent artist and producer who puts so much passion and hard work into everything he does. There is a lot of thought and focus on quality at every stage of the production, and such a vast array of quality songs truly sets the bar higher for the artist, who shows no sign of slowing down.

Find out more about Bequem and listen to Coffee Lounge on your favorite streaming services. Meanwhile, listeners can seamlessly enjoy listening to many of the songs that Bequem has released, including one of his most recent releases, "Hooligan Of My Heart," and the mesmerizing "Sitting in a Cafe," which the artist released earlier this year.

A shoegaze take on Neil Young, Nirvana, Ramones and more on covers EP by Dead Rituals

  Dead Rituals has been straddling the line between Post-Punk and Shoegaze, releasing original songs and EPs since the project’s inception in 2019. Still, songwriter Andrea Caccese felt stranded and alone throughout the 2020 lockdown.   Like many artists, he found himself stuck in a small apartment with uncertainty and doubt. He didn't feel like working on original music throughout the ordeal, so he sought refuge in some of his favorite songs. This resulted in a series of cover songs shared weekly through social media over the lockdown. Instead of replicating the originals verbatim, Dead Rituals revisited the songs through the scope of post-punk and shoegaze.  Some of the songs ended up on a small EP, now available on Spotify . “Selected Covers” features a surprisingly diverse setlist. Dead Rituals offers a different spin on tracks by Radiohead, Neil Young, Mac Miller, Nirvana, Ramones, Blink-182, and even Justin Bieber. More cover songs are also available on the artist's Band

The Bang! Tales explores post-punk and garage aesthetics on a new self-titled EP.

The Bang! Tales is a band focusing on capturing the grit of old-school post-punk music, incorporating elements of garage and other influences. The group’s most recent self-titled EP is a perfect example of what to expect. The song “Oh! Tonite” has a 70s proto-punk flavor, with a relentless riff and hypnotic vocals. “Call Me Madeleine” follows along the same lines, offering an upbeat rock and roll attitude, this time with more focus on melody. The third track is titled “…And then comes the sun.” The melodic introduction of the guitar riff is reminiscent of iconic artists like Johnny Thunders. At the same time, the vocals have a deeper sound that might remind the audience of early punk groups like The Avengers. “The Thrill” is perhaps the fastest and rawest song on the album. The guitar riff is bare-bones but extremely powerful and punchy, capturing the primal essence of what makes rock music so immediate and true. Lastly, “My Lula” is an outstanding curtain closer.   This new release f

Black Masses has released a new alt-rock single: So Long, Sailor.

Black Masses is an alternative rock duo with a broad creative scope. The pair channels a wide range of influences, including garage, classic rock, and alternative music, blurring the lines between the staples of rock music and a more innovative twist. The song kicks off with a droning sound that immediately builds the drama and texture of the instrumental. Soon after, the duo dives into a fuzzy, edgy tone that retains some melody. The drum sound, in particular, defines the aesthetics of the recording with a compressed, big, distorted roomy tone. The bass also has an overdriven thump that cuts through the mix while lifting the guitars in the process. The vocals are a perfect match with the intensity of the instrumental, which has a post-grunge flavor. You can expect walls of guitar, and a massive overall soundscape, which combines the classic grit of alternative music with a penchant for lush soundscapes that add a sense of depth to the arrangement. “So Long, Sailor” happens to be the f
