1) SAVNKO – Notgood@sports
SAVNKO is a Milan-based independent artist whose EP Notgood@sports is a stunning mix of electronic pop and ambient techno.
The album has an ethereal, dreamlike quality that’s sure to transport you to another world, but the beats are so super catchy and the vocals so soothing that you can’t help but be drawn into its world.
The EP has all the hallmarks of classic electronic pop: soaring vocals over bouncy dance beats, but it’s also got a futuristic sound that will make you want to hit the dance floor.
‘Notgood@sports’ is composed of two original songs by Savnko: notgood@sports and c’mon.
Remixes are provided by 51Beats friends and artists including Crayon Mortel, Double Precision, Giacomo Vanelli, Joao Ceser, Random Name, and Tracya.
Notgood@Sports attempts to infuse the daily bitterness surrounding us, ranging from worries about the future to fatigue and frustration.
The original notgood@sports is difficult to categorize, with “electronic R&B” fitting best. Giacomo Vanelli’s “sweet electronic groove” follows Joao Ceser’s bouncy interpretation. It follows with Crayon Mortel’s “dub-garage beats” that nicely introduce Tracya’s “trippy version”. Double Precision injects a “profound atmospheric closure” into the interpretation.

There is a lot of familiarity and norms in the world of EDM music. Miriam Love is a multi-talented artist, producer, singer and songwriter who aims to revolutionize how we perceive contemporary sound.
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.
The album All In is electronic pure high-quality EDM pop, commercial pop, house, contemporary R&B and incredible female vocals. It has commercial vocal dance/EDM and tropical elements and is perfect for the dance floor.
It’s a great mix of songs to listen to when working out or dancing or just relaxing at home with friends. The album has a classic sound that makes it feel like it’s been around forever, but at the same time, it sounds fresh and exciting to listen to today.
4) DORIAN – 33
Dorian, a US-based artist, has released an EP titled 33. The EP contains three tracks, each of which has its own unique sound and style.
With his latest project, ’33’, Dorian transforms himself yet again. In addition to showing Dorian’s progress as an independent artist, this body of work is considered to be among his best.
Dorian consistently and creatively conveys his life story and personal journey in songs that will leave a lasting impression on listeners as he authentically shares his life story and personal journey. Three very diverse, colourful, and catchy tunes make up ’33’!
There is nothing quite like a catchy and infectious R&B drill record filled with soul and an uplifting message like Blast Off. Which is my favourite song from the EP from far. I love this style of music and I also love to find new artists who do it. Definitely worth checking out!
5) MICHAEL DONOGHUE – Infant
Michael Donoghue‘s new album ‘Infant’ is a masterpiece of electronic and experimental music. The seven-track release was released on 13/01 and is available to stream on Spotify.
Another album is on its way, this time a collaboration with his friend and fellow independent artist Pulses. They’ve been on each other’s radar for a while, and after Pulses remixed a couple of Michael’s previous releases, they thought it would be a good idea to create a whole project together. An album quickly formed, so they present to us ‘Infant’.
This is an 8-track album that combines both of their styles, blending together Michael’s minimalism and ambience, with Pulses’ upbeat, groovy breaks. I’m super happy with how this album has come out and I’m sure you’ll like it too. There’s a bit of everything – poppy electro, breaks, DnB, techno, chill out, and much more!
Infant is an electronic album that’s perfect for fans of chillout music, electronica, downtempo beats, downtempo instrumentals, and cinematic soundscapes.
6) PETER SPACEY – Digital Owl Warehouse Live Session
PETER SPACEY is an Israeli artist whose single, “Digital Owl Warehouse Live Session,” is a great example of the kind of music he makes: glitchy, energetic, and danceable.
PETER SPACEY’s work is especially notable because it blends elements of multiple subgenres: industrial, synth-wave, disco…the list goes on. His sound is also very cinematic
In his most recent release, Digital Owl Warehouse Live Session (which we’ll be reviewing today), Peter blends many different styles of electronic music to create a cohesive sound that is full of energy and fun.
The song is a great example of the kind of future-forward electronic music that PETER SPACEY does so well—it’s not just danceable, but it has a lot of character and personality. It sounds like something you’d expect to hear in a club or at an underground party.
7) ZAENO – Rebel In Us
ZAENO is an independent artist from India, Bangalore. His EP Rebel In Us is a deep house EP with a hint of EDM and house. The EP has 3 tracks and each one is super catchy and relaxing. The beats are euphoric and relaxing. It’s perfect for chilling out or working out!
Zaeno about himself: ”I have always had a strong passion for music and engineering. After years of leading top-class engineering teams in well-funded startups, I decided to pursue my true calling as a music producer. With a keen ear for unique and innovative sounds, I am crafting a signature style that blends elements of House music with cutting-edge production techniques.”
His latest EP, Rebel In Us, is a deep house EP that I describe as a mix of euphoric dance beats and relaxing ambient sounds. It’s got everything you could want from an electronic dance album: catchy hooks, deep basslines, and plenty of synth work to keep your heart racing even when you’re just sitting around at home listening to it!
My favourite track from this EP is the first one, which is also the title track, ”Rebel In Us”. It’s very relaxing but you can dance to it at the same time. It’s like techno, house and synth in the same song. It’s greatly well-produced, I love it!
8) TONYC – Trauma
TonyC is a psychedelic electronic artist from Freiburg, Germany. His new single, Trauma, is an anthemic, catchy and super edgy piece of music that will get you dancing and working out.
With love and passion, he creates electronic music that is filled with love, thought, and an attempt to create an extraordinary listening experience for his listeners.
The song, Trauma, is a high-energy track that combines elements of EDM and trance to create a soundscape of beautiful vocals and powerful chords. It’s an anthem that will get you moving from the very first note.
A track with this level of clarity and crispness is not overproduced or polished to the point where it becomes dull. Having beat breakdowns to break up the songs at the appropriate time adds a great deal of variety to the songs without feeling forced or extraneous.
9) RICHARD GREEN – Astronaut
Richard Green is a London-based artist who creates music that transcends the boundaries of genre. His newest single, “Astronaut,” is a perfect example of this.
His sound is very electronic, with a touch of EDM, future house, house, and tech house. It’s quirky and danceable—perfect for the club or your couch!
The production is also amazing. The beat hits hard and steady throughout; it’s built like a house track should be built—with a lot of thought put into how each element interacts with each other part of the song
It is not only the originality of the arrangement that I like, but also the fact that he used some unorthodox music scales, in fact, I found some interesting melodies and arrangements to this track, so I really enjoyed the track as a whole.
The song has a cinematic feel to it—you can almost imagine it being on a movie soundtrack. And it’s super catchy! You’ll want to play this one over and over again.
10) SILAS ARMSTRONG – So Much For Love (Aymen Valentino Remix)
Silas Armstrong is an independent artist based in Brixton, UK, that released his first single, “So Much For Love” in December 2022. This single was remixed by Aymen Valentino.
With Silas Armstrong having 300k global streams in the last 12 months, and producer Aymen Valentino gearing up for some major label releases in the new year, both artists are making a lot of noise right now.
Dance floor, gym, commute, house party, or bedroom rave, this track has all the energy to get people moving. There’s nothing better for this time of year than this banger, perfect for parties, relationship breakups, and even anti-Valentine’s Day.
There is no doubt that this collaboration is a hidden gem, a glimpse into the future of both artists, and an absolute buzz-worthy track fit for any drum and bass, jungle, dance-pop, electro, EDM, break beat, break up work out or motivate playlist.
