79.5

New York, NY
Attempting to pigeonhole 79.5 into something as narrow as a single genre wo...uld be an ill advised, if not impossible, task. The New York City band sounds like someone spinning a radio dial with such passionate intensity that all the stations blend together into a single, transcendent, almost spiritual force. It’s disco to the beat of modern house; it’s a Supremes cover of a Cardi B banger; it’s Roland Kirk playing jazz through one saxophone, funk through another, and the most earwormy pop tune the 1970’s could muster through a third. Founded by singer-songwriter Kate Mattison in 2010, the first single "Terrorize My Heart (Disco Dub)" off their debut LP "Predictions" became a staple in DJ sets around the world getting spins from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Q Tip, Kenny Dope, DJ Spinna, and Just Blaze to name a few. The album was released late 2018, produced by Leon Michels (El Michels Affair) and co-produced by Jens Jungkurth, and has received many favorable reviews, including NPR, Billboard and Okayplayer.

The Derelicts!

Ernakulam, INDIA
What would happen if you put 4 friends , with varied musical backgrounds an...d tastes, in a room with all their instruments? The Derelicts! is the result of such a crazy experiment. Our sound can be described as funky and alternative with a tinge of 80s synth/dream pop. All they strive to achieve is have fun and share their joy with the masses through the language of groove. They hail from Kochi, Kerala, India which is known popularly as the 'Queen of The Arabian Sea' and love impromptu jams, ice cream, neon lights, and flashy colours. The band released their first single ‘Happy Sad’ on 23rd March 2018 as an early exclusive on Rolling Stone Magazine. It has been making waves among indie music listeners since. The second single ‘Jennifer’, was released in an exclusive premiere partnership with Earbuddy, USA on 25th May 2018. The two singles were followed by the release of their debut self titled EP ‘The Derelicts EP’. Itunes & Apple Music (India) featured the same on their home page declaring The Derelicts! their artists of the month on June 2018. Their debut EP was also reviewed & featured on Bandcamp under the ‘New and Notable’ section. Another feather in the boys cap. Read More

Nico LaOnda

New York, NY
Brooklyn’s Nico LaOnda is the new musical outfit of Italian-born, New Yor...k-based artist Nicola Donà. While some acts are able to evolve and reshape under the same moniker, Nico catalogues each iteration of his art under different band names, creating multiple chapters within the same story. Nico LaOnda's debut album, Tutto Bene, released August 29th, 2019 is one that seamlessly blends off-kilter 80s aesthetics with 50s and 60s nostalgic beat, taking the listener through a technicolor soundscape of Italo-pop and sun-infused disco. After the release of his first single "Casco Ribelle" in May, Nico LaOnda played some of the most important Italian festivals and events (Mi Ami festival, Handmade Fest) as a part of his summer tour “Stasera Debutto”. In July, Nico released his second single, "Fratello Gemma", for which a music video was made and later reviewed by Rolling Stone Italia. Nico’s live performances have occurred all over NYC: from traditional music venues to friends’ rooftops and private gardens, and even Italian restaurants, with some shows entirely sold out.. “Calboni” was released in December as a holiday special; a prelude to what is to come in 2020.
