One of NYC’s hidden gems, @h0l0.nyc, is home to many local and international acts breaking into the music scene. From Techno, GQOM to Bass and Dubstep you can find live acts from all genres playing almost every night of the week. The discreet façade of the venue situated in Ridgewood, is nothing like what goes on inside this DIY venue. Our new 'Offline' documentary dropping soon.

We first met @agorrrrr — one half of @trubluhawaii for Season 3 in Berlin and then @b.bflat in Season 4 Montreal. Since then the dynamic duo has been making good use of their time apart + together. The pair recently completed their successful European and North American tour and released a new song 'Remember When' earlier this month. The long awaited release of their album 'Open Reduction Internal Fixation' late last year including the single 'All that Blue' has already amassed over 372,000 plays. Inspired by the duo’s experience with recovery, it follows the release of critically acclaimed 'Untogether' and 'Tenderness', both nominated for the Juno Award for Electronic Album of the year.
We love seeing these two back together and looking forward to more new music in 2020 from them!

Berlin based rock duo @gurrband is paving the way for fellow female bands across the world. When we met with Andreya and Laura in Season 3, they had just return from a successful ‘She Says’ US tour. We chatted about the lack of recognition that female, poc and LBGTQ bands receive in the industry; something the duo feel passionately about changing. Since meeting with Gurr in The early summer of 2019, the band has closed out the year continuing their tour across Europe, adding @weformedaband community workshops to the lineup of their Germany shows, aimed at providing guidance and information to up and coming musicians. You can still catch Gurr before the ‘She Says’ tour wraps up; with finals shows in Essen, Amsterdam, Paris and London. In 2020 Gurr is looking forward to being featured in a movie, for which they have recorded two songs. The band has also teased fans with the potential to be featured in the film alongside them.

The unique tunes of @poeticthrust took us to a soulful, jazzy yet exciting hip hop world in New York. Since songs are written with the creative collaboration and improvisation of seven artists, the topics vary based on personal experiences. When interviewed in Season #1, the collective have said this about their songs ‘Most of the songs we write are about reflecting on the best and worst in ourselves. They’re like hyperbolic insights into the way we young people navigate the world, whether it be related to romance, mental health, political beliefs or pop culture, it is all there.’

In the past year they’ve continued to improvise and produce new sounds —released a critically acclaimed new ep ‘On DECK’, made a music video for Artichoke, and premiered their fire track PSA with CLASH magazine. Be sure to catch one of their hypnotic live shows at locations such as @elsewherespace and @mercuryloungeny

An icon in the South Korean hip hop world, we met @yumdda in season 2, fresh off the release of his album Breath 2. He’s a multiplayer — rapper, producer, VJ, tv personality you name it. His talent, charisma and a ‘L’assez faire’ attitude has made Yumdda so captivating! And everyone wants a piece of him.

Since his debut feature for BeatBites, the rapper has gone on to become an internet sensation with his viral (not so) new persona #oldmanwhoflexandlovemoney - sold 900 million won of FLEX merch, and collaborated with some of the hottest names in S. Korea’s hip hop such as Jay Park, Zico, Dingo Freestyle. Most recently he started the project group Damoin with fellow rappers Simon Dominic, The Quiett, Deepflow and Paloalto. Relieve all your 90’s dream with their new single ‘2 Bottles’.

Hard to believe that [So!YoON!] is only barely 23, given everything she’s accomplished in such a short amount of time! @sleeep__sheeep was one of the many talented artists featured in our Seoul Season!

Debuting as lead vocalist for @se_so_neon the trio dramatically rose to be one of Korea’s hottest indie acts since Hyukoh! She then embarked on her first solo album ‘So!YoON!’ since 2/3 of her band mates Gangto and Fancymoon were preparing for mandatory military enlistment.

It’s been a year of changes for this young artist. She’s since appeared on popular tv shows M Countdown and Hyena on the Keyboard, recruited new members Park Hyunjin and U-su for Se So Neon, released a new single ‘Home’ revealing a newer, stronger sound full of psychedelic youthful clarity, and best of all she’s back on the road touring! 🖤

Here at BeatBites, we’re building a community not just for musicians but also for all you music lovers!
Since we’re heading into our 5th season, we wanted to start the year off by revisiting our past artists and seeing what they’ve been up to. [ SUMIN ]🌹 came to us in late 2018 off the back of her album ‘Your Home’, racking up hundreds of thousands of streams on Spotify and YouTube. The album was a feast for the eyes thanks to her natural talent for art direction, and it sounds pretty phenomenal too!Since then she’s only been stepping forward — winning the R&B Album of the Year at the 2019 Korean Hip Hop Awards and was one of the first artists to be hand picked by @sxsw for an official showcase in 2020! BAM! We love you @suminismm 🖤

Aaaand that's a wrap! In 2019 we discovered numerous new talents, and immersed ourselves in their culture — 4 seasons, 4 countries and 38 artists (!!!) We had a blast! Thank you to these artists, the directors and photographers we collaborated with, the team behind the scene tirelessly putting this together and to ya’ll for tuning into our adventures. May 2020 be just as musical as 2019.

@sophiabel1 uses her dreamy vocals to tell her tale, weaving it with impressive production with notable producers such as CRi (a long time collaborator and friend) to give a sound that is unashamedly romantic. Her music take listeners to the edge of melancholy through lyrics that is filled with sullen and immense imagery, most notable in her song, Shades of Blue, where she revisits the emotions felt after a break up.

In this #closeup interview, we caught up with Sophia poolside at Club Lacite to discuss the song’s inception, finding yourself and her early obsession with Celine Dion.

Singer, songwriter, and producer @sophiabel1 is a child of the early and mid-2000s, where she spent her teens were in Quebec city bound up in the skate punk scene, before immersing herself more completely in electronic production.

She draws inspiration from the blurry outlines of her own childhood whilst using her dreamy vocals to tell her tale against potent production with notable producers such as long-time friend and producer CRi. Resulting in a sound that is unashamedly romantic, with the Canadian singer wearing her heart firmly on her sleeve.

Infectious west coast sound meets unassuming east coast cool, @winonaforeverband is far from your typical guitar pop group.

In this episode of Close Up, the boys chats about the band’s formations, songwriting, being newcomers and that infamous Johnny Depp tattoo.

11/18/2019

In pursuit of musical adventures indie-pop band @winonaforeverband decided to take that leap of faith and embarked on a cross country road trip, finally settling in Montreal where they now call home. In this episode, we took a 'Joyride' with the lads, an ode to their road trip from their latest album Feelgood. Their music has that quintessential west coast sound – classic rock guitar, soft melodie, catchy lyrics, the kind that is brewed with a feel good nostalgia, endless summers and a sense of escapism for its listeners.

Finding someone on the same wavelength is hard. But if you're lucky, you could be Chris and Rosie of @Bodywash. The Montreal-based duo is the culmination of two college students with a dream — bonding over years of jamming together in a basement room and a shared love for shoegaze dream pop. The two immediately fell in sync resulting in a perfect late night album filled with obsessive details and a mix of 90’s synth / trio hop. ⚡️
