Her intricate and scintillating melodies are pushing the boundaries of possibilities. With her novel ideas and refreshing music, Miriam Love is creating a cycle of healing and wellness beyond the simple premise of entertainment.

2) KMALECTRO – Guten Morgen Cologne
Kmalectro hasn’t made music for a long time and now it’s time to release his new tracks. He worked with many well-known artists. Sadly, he was too young to understand business.
After a long career as an osteopath and dream therapist, he is now daring to produce and publish his own music. Prior to that, he considered it unmarketable.
The track, Guten Morgen Cologne, is a dreamy, electronic piece that combines elements of house and pop in an upbeat way that’s perfect for working out and for a party.
There is no way you will resist and stay quiet, I am certain of that. And it’s got a catchy chorus that will have you singing along in no time.
If you’re looking for something new to add to your weekend, party or workout playlist, check it out, visit his website, and follow Kmalectro on Spotify!
3) GENEVIEVE SOVEREIGN – Vibration Angle (feat. Ben Tenison)
GENEVIEVE SOVEREIGN is a dream pop/electronic artist from Australia, who recently released her new single “Vibration Angle (feat. Ben Tenison).”
The single “Vibration Angle” was co-written by independent electronic singer-songwriter Genevieve Sovereign and composer-producer Ben Tenison and released on 11/11/2022.
“Vibration Angle” invites listeners to meld thought and sensation into a vast but somehow nostalgic universe, offering almost koans-like questions such as “What can you see from your angle – does it take your gaze further than mine?”
Later, “Can you feel these vibrations around you, lifting hairs from your skin to the light?”
The production on this track is great—the beats are solid and there’s nothing in the background that distracts from what Genevieve Sovereign is singing about.
I also love how she includes some awesome female vocals in here too! This is definitely one of my favourite tracks by Genevieve Sovereign so far. Check it out, visit her website, and follow the artist on Spotify!
4) MARK WINK – In A Dream
IN A DREAM is a dreamy new single from Mark Wink, an alternative pop singer-songwriter based in Vienna, Austria. The song is part of his upcoming EP, “In A Dream”
The song is a blend of EDM, synth-pop, and dreamy vocals that will make you want to get up and dance.
If your tastes are similar to mine, then this song should definitely be on your playlist!
The song starts off with a simple piano melody that builds into a full-on EDM track with a disco beat and soaring vocals.
It’s the kind of song you’d hear at a nightclub dance or at the modern DJ’s clubs on Saturday night, but it also has this chilled-out atmosphere that makes it perfect for getting ready for an evening out or just having some fun on your own.
There is also a retro feel to it, which in my opinion just made it even more special. I recommend you check out his entire portfolio, I just loved it! Watch his ultra-technological music video, visit his website or follow him on Spotify!
5) BIG IN BORNEO – Sertraline
If you’re looking for a new, chill-out genre to add to your playlist, look no further. This will for sure be an enjoyable journey through nice and calm fresh EDM music.
This 3-track EP by BIG IN BORNEO is a perfect blend of electronic and breakbeat. The EP features five great tunes, each with its own distinct soundscape, which is great for those who enjoy dark pop, and chillout music.
It’s all relaxing beats that will help you unwind after a stressful day. It’s also perfect for anyone who wants to get into electronic music but doesn’t want to be overwhelmed by too much intense noise or jagged beats.
In relation to the song, Big In Borneo said: ”At the beginning of this year, I became anxious and felt a lack of creativity as a result. Getting a prescription for Sertraline helped me feel inspired again and I began making music again. This EP is named for the drug that helped me come out the other side. I hope it takes you on an uplifting journey”.

A psychedelic techno exploration of Reue’s 27 song releases this year, Don’t Speak is a psychedelic techno exploration.
This is a “rain forest” style deep techno track – all the sounds blend together to create one giant ecosystem of sound that engulfs the listener. To create a rich tone and groove, all analogue synthesizers and drum machines were used.
Reue’s other tracks have similar vibes, but each one has its own unique flavour that makes it stand out from the rest—so if you like this one, definitely check out their other work as well!

If you love EDM music and the techno nuances of it, then you’ll love SONOMANCER. It’s an upbeat piece of electronic music that will put your heartbeat pulsing faster.
Stoppage Time by Sonomancer is a piece of electronic music with breakbeats and synthesizer riffs.
The song has all of the elements that make for a great techno anthem: catchy, edgy, and very danceable at the same time.
But most of all, what makes this song such an anthem is its ability to, without lyrics, evoke an emotional reaction in listeners: even if they can’t put their finger on exactly why they love this song so much, they know they do—and they’re going to keep listening until they figure it out!

This song closes a great milestone, with several songs published by the artist Vallac between 2021 and 2022. Now the artist is delivering more great music for our total happiness.
There are many great things about this single: it’s upbeat, it has a catchy beat, it’s EDM-fusion of genres but also has an underground vibe; it has strong vocals, and it’s perfect for working out or dancing at a club.

9) RALPHY – Wanted Sam J Garfield Remix
Ralphy is an LA-based artist who has recently released a single, “Wanted Sam J Garfield Remix,” that is sure to be a hit.
This song is the perfect mix of electronic pop, disco house, and dance music, with female vocals that will get you moving and singing along.
To prolific, genre-spanning producer Sam J Garfield, Ralphy said, “Let’s @&$# it up! ”. As a result, the rocky, ’90s-flavoured ‘Wanted’ got a major house-style overhaul.
The track opens clean and commanding with the challenging assertion ‘No, you couldn’t walk in these boots’; from there, it takes hold and doesn’t let go.
As an alternative to the typical verse-chorus-verse structure, the song builds section after section in waves before reaching its ultimate climax with sampled and looped vocals that provide both harmonic and rhythmic work in their alternate soaring to the staccato arrangement.
On top of a driving beat, lush, dizzying synths and effects rise and fall. Although the track is up-tempo and dancey, it also has its own signature quirks that show Ralphy and SJG’s shared love of originality and genre-bending.
The liquid cascade of falling raindrops can be heard, along with crisp footsteps echoing the heavy drum pattern. In addition to playfulness and experimentation with well-loved genres, ‘Wanted— Sam J Garfield Remix’ exudes the spirit of true dance floor euphoria.
Ralphy’s website features social links so that people can follow her on Spotify or YouTube. She also has a lot of videos available. Now check it out!
