Love can blossom from friendship, but if it fades, friendship rarely remains. Atlanta-based songstress, Brooklynn, seems to be experiencing that very conundrum in the lyrics of her heartfelt new track "Friends," being offered as a free download right here on Joonbug! "Friends" toes the line between confidence and insecurity, with Brooklynn at first crooning assuredly, "I can do it better, I can do it right, I can give you treasures every single night..." before pulling back and expressing her worries of "things will never be the same again...no going back, no going back to friends..." Blend these conflicting emotions with a smooth beat and Brooklynn's soaring vocals for a gorgeous track that will move you to the core. Check it out the track HERE!
"Underbelly" packs in plenty of exciting elements, including lively piano synths and a nice but gnarly bass line to ensure there is a bit of punch. The group seem to have established a sound with ease, and it will be interesting to see where they take their music heading into 2015.

MADEON U.S. TOUR DATES:
To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Yoshitoshi is releasing a remix package filled with their most iconic tracks to date. Previous releases from the compilation include Uto Karem and Robosonic mixes of Eddie Amador’s ‘House Music,” which have both seen much success on the Beatport charts.
The next track on the bill is Alcatraz’ seminal “Giv Me Luv,’ and lending her techno Goddess hands to the track for the remix is Nicole Moudaber. “I’ve got so many fond memories of ‘Giv Me Luv’, it was one of my favorite tunes from my formative clubbing days. So, when Yoshi mentioned the idea of me remixing it I just couldn’t say no. In fact I was so familiar with Alcatraz I was already awash with ideas of what I could, or should, do with it. As I got into the mix one of those ideas just grew and grew, namely an extended breakdown that constantly builds; layering the memorable vocal to an intense pay-off and (hopeful) moment of real dance floor drama.”

If rock ‘n’ roll took a day off and spent it eating ice cream and frolicking through fields of marshmallows, you would get The Dig. Not to take away from the bad-assery that is their music, The Dig’s trance-like tunes take you to an ethereal state of synthesizer sounds and captivating lyrics.
Since childhood, band members Emile Mosseri (vocals/bass) and David Baldwin (guitar/vocals) have been playing music together, and with the addition of Erick Eiser (keyboard/guitar) and Mark Demiglio (drums), the band has been able to consistently challenge their musical space and evolve their sound. The Dig released their debut album Electric Toys in 2010, followed by Midnight Flowers two years later. The band then took a left turn when they elevated their sound from indie rock to dream pop with the release of two EP’s in 2013 – Tired Hearts and You & I.
We're sure you've heard of the saying, "When it rains, it pours." Well, guess what? American Electronic dance music producer and DJ, Audien, is currently living it right about now. Firstly, as Grammy nominees were announced, Audien, a.k.a. Nathaniel "Nate" Rathbun, was nominated for Best Remixed Recording, Non Classical, for his mix of Bastille's "Pompeii." Of course, the nomination didn't come as a surprise to any of his fans because the track was the most played at this year's Electric Daisy Carnival and Coachella, and on the Top 5 played list at TomorrowLand 2014.
Hot off their latest win at the American Music Awards for Favorite Alternative Artist, Imagine Dragons are ready to welcome 2015 with their second studio album! They debuted the lead single of their new album, "I Bet My Life," at the AMA's held on November 23rd. And as of today, the music video to the song is available on Vevo.
Written by all four members of the band, "I Bet My Life" is rumored to be about the lead Dan Reynold's relationship with his family. "As the first video on our new album, it was especially important that we capture the emotion of the song,” said the lead singer “Although it was written about my sometimes strained relationship with my parents, our director Jodeb had a powerful vision for how the feeling of the story could be portrayed. We were also lucky to have such amazing talent to work with in our lead actor Dane DeHaan."
A heartfelt ballad is born from the ashes of a tragedy with Brooke Forman's new song, "Paper Planes, co written and produced by Lyon Hart.

The crash killed all passengers and crew on board. It was a shocking and devastating tragedy that left the family and friends of the victims at a loss for words.
Brooke Forman, upcoming songstress based out of NYC, lends her penetrating voice to a cause for this tragedy. She released the song "Paper Planes," for a beloved friend she lost on the flight. The flight was transporting some of the world's leading AIDS experts. Broadway Cares, Equity Fights AIDS has teamed up with Brooke to donate proceeds from any iTunes purchase of the soulful ballad as charity for the cause.
