Re-imagining the shade of truth.
Ethereal electro-pop artist MONOGEM, just released two remixes of "Shade," a song about speaking truth.
According to MONOGEM, "One of my favorite parts of the release process is remix time. I absolutely love hearing my songs re-imagined, it almost gives a song that can feel older and not as relevant, a totally new life."
MONOGEM is the musical project of singer-songwriter Jen Hirsh, who borrowed her name from the universe, where a monogem ring is the lingering glow after a supernova.
In 2017, MONOGEM dropped her second EP, 100%, along with a Remix EP and her breakout single, "Wild," which went viral, accumulating 65 million streams. The music video for "Wild," starring Coco Arquette, was featured on Good Morning America, E! News, NYLON, and Perez Hilton.
She followed with a pair of elevated singles in 2018, as well as a national tour with ANIMA! The first single, "Lean," from her forthcoming EP, So Many Ways, is slated for release May 17 via AWAL.
The first remix of "Shade," by Eau Claire, opens on two harmonic layers, dark and light, riding a potent rhythmic pulse provided by a bass line and thumping percussion. Reverberating, filtered vocals infuse the tune with echoing spectral tones full of mystery.
MOZAMBIQUE's remix rides sparkling synths supported by a cavernously throbbing groove rife with dance-lite dynamics. Shimmering washes of color glide overhead, as a tantalizing female voice imbues the lyrics with lingering incandescence. Glistening resonance pervades the music, giving it solid depth and dimension.
Vastly different in texture and sonic surfaces, both remixes of "Shade" reveal MONOGEM's gift for stylish, iridescent electro-pop.

It was always her dance floor.
Few artists have given as much of themselves to their fans as Lady Gaga.
Since being ordained queen of the nightclub (not to mention the pregame, the getting-ready-bedroom-dance, the drag show, and the summer night drive) in 2008 with "Just Dance," the hit single from her hit debut album The Fame, Gaga has continued to surprise fans with constant reinvention. She cemented her place as the pop-artist of a generation with Born This Way and even (as over-produced as it was) Art Pop, and then, shockingly, went on to release a jazz standard's album with Tony Bennett (Cheek to Cheek), a country album (Joanne), and finally become an Oscar-nominated actress for A Star Is Born. Somehow, she pulled off every iteration of herself with charisma and grace.

Sincere, vulnerable, and seductive.
Australian DIY pop artist Airports, AKA Aaron Lee, releases "U FEEL IT 2," following on the heels of his dreamy lo-fi banger, "Don't Sleep Anymore."
Aaron explains the double entendre of the song, "It started out being written as a song about a haunting relationship with depression in contrast to uplifting music, but when some of the lyrics started to spill out I realized I was also writing about positive romantic feelings for my partner." Featuring bleeding synths, blushing harmonies, and Aaron's velvety falsetto, "U FEEL IT 2" is a perfect summer anthem.
