Producer/instrumentalist Connor Terrones shares two songs from his album. The singer/songwriter already popped on our radar with his multi-genre style and distinct vocal tone.
“I Don’t Care” is the intro to Connor’s album and it sure sets the tone with its warm textures, punchy drums and funky basslines. Connor easily flows over this with his slightly processed vocal runs. It’s simple, easy to follow and has a smooth bounce as well.

The second record “Drown” is a testament to Connor’s wide array of styles. The production is experimental and takes elements from jazz, funk, soul, pop and techno music and it’s not easy to put in a box. The layered musical textures, energetic grooves and heartfelt songwriting blend seamlessly. The record talks about leaning on a higher power to help him out if the situation calls for it. The switch up at the middle part is welcome and gives the song a whole different feel and adds to the message delivered on the track.
LA-based grammy award-winning multi-instrumentalist producer Alekos “Kosie” Syropoulos links up with vocalist Whitney Myer and famed lyricist Harry Mack for this fresh single titled “Fascination”. The track centers around a kid who is fascinated with music and how his dreams of making music enthralled him throughout his teenage years and how all the legendary hip-hop albums from the 90s informed him and moulded him to become what he is. Harry Mack easily embodies this with his vivid lyrics and engaging storytelling as he takes us back to the 90s while singer Whitney ties it up with an alluring and melodic chorus to boot.
