Nothing but cuteness oozes out from this unique artist! QT Milk creates illustrations that form into eye candy that can never get too sweet. From the bright and complementary colors she chooses to the characters she creates, QT Milk gathers her imagination to create art that will only amaze you.

In every piece she constructs together, QT Milk is able to create visuals that show and express her personality.

ARTIST Q&A: TOFUKU'S NEW RELEASE

"SUNRISE CUTIE"Written by: AREN The new original song, “Sunrise Cutie” by TOFUKU, is an amazing new hit and we love every second of it! “Sunrise Cutie’’ is a stellar song providing a cutesy feel and also a heartwarming experience.

NEW AVIDD REMIX

Image
"SCATMAN (AVIDD REMIX) SKI-BA-BOP-BA-DOP-BOP"
Avidd is always testing and pushing boundaries when it comes to making music. With his new remix of Scatman John's "Scatman (Ski-Ba-Bop-Ba-Dop-Bop)," avidd brings a rare production unlike nothing you have ever heard. In his version of "Scatman," he retains some of the track's original ravey pulse and energy, but then he surprises us by turning it into a heavy hard hitting track.  By giving the remix a trap foundation to play off of, this is simply everything you would want from an avidd creation. If you need a track to bring a party to a whole other level, avidd's remix of "Scatman (Ski-Ba-Bop-Ba-Dop-Bop)" is the banger to turn on!

Below you can listen to "Scatman (avidd remix) ski-ba-bop-ba-dop-bop."

NEW BLIPPO TRACK

Image
"SOMEDAY (TAKE ME ON A TRIP)"Written by: AREN

Blippo is a new artist from Florida that creates beautiful beats. Blippo has been working on his “American Boy” by Estelle and Yeezy remix for quite a while now. The process was a long one; it took him about 5 times just for him to reach that sweet spot with the remix. But when he hit that perfect mark, he hit it hard! The song offers a beautiful variety of beats ranging from very subtle Mario samples to amazing drum beats. The retro and modernist feel he brings just makes the song all the better. Blippo’s remix “someday (take me on a trip)” is one of the most beautiful and relaxing songs I've listened to in a while. Please take a listen…it is worth every second.

PRODUCER: DAYDREAMER
His music is able to convey his thoughts so simply yet so complex that you don't know how to wrap your mind around the heavy sensation of emotionally driven music he drops upon you. Being one of my favorite upcoming artists at the moment, Daydreamer creates music for you to feel his devotion and love of music as a whole. His radiant new EP, titledSenses, which was released on June 10th, established an excellent first step into his music career. The EP projects the views of what he is inspired by and what motivates him to produce music, giving listeners a sense of who he is as both an artist and person. Having his first tracks fromSenses, "Swoon" and "Skyscrapers," be released via MrSuicideSheep, Daydreamer is a musical treasure who is gradually emerging into the electronic music scene. He is only just beginning to pave his way and I thought it would be a great idea to ask him some questions about his inspirations, music, and artist backgrou…

"HYPERLOOP" Voia just seems to never disappoint with every release he delivers to us.

She has done work for Hex Mania, VOIA, for the recent Paper Crane volume, and many more. Not only does Princeling peruse visual art, but she is also extremely brilliant with her way of words.

From the color schemes to the dynamic objects chosen, each piece obtains a life of its own, showing intense character and individuality. But honestly I shouldn't say anymore because, below, I had the honor to interview the passionate Princeling to …
