As the new year continues revealing opportunities for change, Audius continues uncovering the latest heat. Indeed, this week’s Hot & New playlist update contains an eclectic collection of fresh releases!

Pouya and Delmar wax poetic together in their newest track, “Seen It All Before.” Delmar, in their Ty typical fashion, infuses this whole tune with unapologetic vulnerability. In harmony with this, the usually aggressive stylings of Pouya turn melancholic in the song, underlined by mournful string instruments. “Seen It All Before'' captures the powerful gentleness felt when exposing your deepest anxieties.

Headroom Records presents their latest label release, “Will U Be There?” by Sempra. Jungle-style breaks introduce the track and steadily carry the energy forward. Meanwhile, Sempra composes a melody that’s both curious and celestial. A vintage-tinged piano line plays over glowing synthesizers and a guitar being plucked. “Will U Be There” showcases the luscious side of jungle.

House producer and DJ J. Worra makes her Audius debut with her explosively hot track, “Check Out (ft. Leo Stannard).” A honey-smooth baseline and piano chords create a nonchalant mood. Leo Stannard’s effortless singing gives J. Worra’s laidback production a defiant edge. “Check Out” can now be the perfect addition to your Audius party playlist!

MorganJ also posts their debut tune on Audius, offering their techno collaboration with Sash Sings, “Energy.” Sash Sings fuels the track with her powerful voice. Her euphoric vocals paired with the energetic piano gives the bridges a taste of disco. In contrast, MorganJ re-imagines the setting, transporting listeners to a techno warehouse. Pulsing lasers and a punching baseline cause all feet to move and hips to gyrate. “Energy” is undoubtedly an instant dance floor classic.

Taking a break from the dance floor, FERNGAZER softly lays listeners down in a quiet meadow with their newest soundscape, “Eat The Sun.” FERNGAZER sonically recreates the awe felt when stumbling across a beautiful patch of land on a hike. Beautiful, shifting sounds emulate animals darting and trees blowing in the wind. “Eat The Sun” combines this organic, psychedelic environment with technicolor elements. FERNGAZER immerses listeners in the otherworldly garden of their imagination in this stunning new release.
