Sweden’s rising duo @NOTD go all #Ninjawerks with “Start It Over”, with @CVBZmvzic and #ShyMartin

NOTD featuring CVBZ and SHY MARTIN, “Start It Over”

It’s so cool to see young and rising Swedish producers NOTD (Tobi and Sam) alongside greats like Alesso, Tiësto, Arty, 3LAU, Kaskade, Nero, and Dillon Francis on the new Ninjawerks Volume 1 compilation with “Start It Over” – and gotta like the boys animated Ninja-style in the artwork above too (real pic below)!  NOTD, who had a Billboard Top 10 dance club play chart entry with “I Wanna Know” with Bea Miller this past summer, brings along Oregon-based vocalist CVBZ, already written about several times in these blog pages, and fellow Swedish singer Shy Martin, who released her first EP this year.  “Start It Over” isn’t the usual kind of dance song you’d find associated with something like Ninjawerks, but clearly the high-profile man behind those projects is looking for a diverse mix, and NOTD delivers.  “Start It Over” is a catchy production that seamlessly blends two splendid and distinct vocals that likely otherwise wouldn’t be matched up, and the bold moves certainly work.  Expect even more big things in 2019 from NOTD.

On a roll: @theDiscoFries and @Shanahanmusic bring us “Is It Over” featuring #ShyMartin


Following up the effervescent and anthemic “Born Ready” and “Day By Day”, NYC duo The Disco Fries are back to offer up “Is It Over”.  The song is in partnership with US trio Shanahan and featuring vocalist Shy Martin, who is best known as the voice behind Mike Perry’s recent international hit “The Ocean”.  It perhaps is slighter overall lyrically from other Disco Fries songs, and goes by in a flash at only 3:16, but with their work with Shanahan they have found a more happy marriage to the pop/dance side of the electronic genre.  And as always the quality here is immense, with ear-catching and buoyant rhythms and a stellar vocal to make “Is It Over” well worth your while.  It’s The Disco Fries’ first for Tritonal’s new label Enhanced too, and you can check it out at the link above.
