  • Artists participating have to be members of the Community and have a Spotify artist account.
  • Artists are welcome to post their original songs and intros in a comment below (only one comment per band/artist please).
  • Note: If an artist has already participated in a previous edition of this project, they can submit again only with a new release of theirs.

  • Artist/Band name:
  • Where are you based:
  • Main genre of music:
  • Describe your sound/music in a few words:

Note - We ask artists to submit only original songs and not covers. Also, artists should not post/embed videos, as we'd like to keep the ground fair for smaller artists with lesser budgets.

 

P.S. When it comes to choosing the winning artist, we'll give equal chance to the finalists to gather votes from the forum's users; so don't get discouraged if you enter your submission at a later point and don't gather too many likes in this thread.

Artist/Band name: ARTEKK

 

Where are you based: Leipzig, Germany

 

Main genre of music: Electronic

Describe your sound/music in a few words: ARTEKK is making music that is driven by a desire to motivate, inspire, comfort and spread love and joy to all those that hear it.

 

Spotify link to one of your most recent original song which you'd submit in priority to the Community's users: https://open.spotify.com/track/4FKXDaG4OqfNaW8855JjKH

 

“Inside a Stone,” could be described as a unique mash between electro pop with some dubstep influences, especially in the way the beats hit hard! The track immediately stands out due to its lush piano groove, but the beats that kick in actually add a dash of power to the song. The vocals are beautiful and emotional as well, giving the song a unique touch.

Who are your musical inspirations: ARTEKK has a vast array of musical influences however he accredits the pivotal influences and inspiration in his life to genres such as Rave 90‘s, Hip Hop, Punk, Jazz, HardTekk and D&B. In the 90’s he was drummer and also played guitar in 2 Punk Bands. This all culminates in ARTEKK producing a musical experience that is enjoyable, easy going and fun music and infused with positive energy to allow for an immersive experience that brings feelings of elation and happiness.

 

Is there anything else you'd want to add to help users to get to know you better:

Inside-A-Stone_Coverart_ARTEKK_small.jpgSomewhere in between the energy of electronic music and the melodic elements of modern breakbeat, there lies a distinctive sonic formula that stands out as the backbone of ARTEKK’s sound. This talented artist is all about creating innovative and fun soundscapes, which set the bar higher in terms of trying different ideas and blending various influences in order to create music that feels utterly personal and dynamic.

Recently, ARTEKK wrapped up a new project named "So Good". This release is the perfect calling card for the artist, and it is a great display of passion, focus and excellent at the core of his sound and vision.

  • Artist/Band name: Waku & Erauw
  • Where are you based: Brussels, Belgium
  • Main genre of music: Soul
  • Describe your sound/music in a few words: classic soul singing over a contemporary sound
  • Spotify link to one of your most recent original song which you'd submit in priority to the Community's users: https://open.spotify.com/track/1jia5cdsq4ieJwrxHGpmlJ?si=728025a9b88c424f
  • Handle for one social media of your choice: https://www.facebook.com/wakuerauw
  • Who are your musical inspirations: The Temptations, Stevie Wonder
  • Is there anything else you'd want to add to help users to get to know you better: The song was written over a period of months, reflecting on the increasing tone of anger, distrust and fear that we see around the world. Why did things get so bad?  It took on another shade with the invasion of Ukraine. "all this noise around me/who'll come and join me?" But this is not a political song; it's ultimately about how we see ourselves as individuals in society. "What do we want to be?" There's a pretty good video on YouTube as well. If you dig the song, you might want to check it. The four singers are pretty powerful (I'm not one of them!) and have careers of their own.

Can only the artist himself post the song here for your considerations? I ask because I'm not an artist, but I work with some in Brazil
