Gregor McMurray – “Vivid” (Ft. Jingle)
Time to welcome one of the craziest artists we’ve heard so far: GREGOR MCMURRAY from Sidney, Australia.
His latest release “Vivid” featuring JINGLE is something that goes beyond what you would expect: crazy glitched synths combined with trippy harmonic sounds, with minimal leading vocals extremely well produced. The impressive sounds design this artist is able to create definitely made us fan instantly. This is the kind of tune that will keep you constantly focused on the beat, with incredibly minimal and curated details is impossible to get bored.

Star2 – “Run Away”
STAR2 is an incredible talent based in San Diego, US. Singer and songwriter, Star2 has released his latest single “Run Away”, rising the atrocities happening in this last period, like the invasion of Ukraine.
This release got us in a loop mode for while, with its incredible flow and its stunning nostalgic vibe.
The beat starts with some melancholic guitars and wide ambient pads. Star2 enters the verse rapping with a sick style, extremely unique, but the best part comes in the chorus where he starts singing emotionally “I just wanna run away”: here’s where you finally click Like and Follow. We’ll make your life easier with his social links below:
Randy Beth – “Run”
Incredible artist with a stunning voice, singer, and songwriter RANDY BETH knows perfectly how to impress people with her music.
Based in New York, US, she’s an upcoming artist who released 2 songs, and we already craving more!
Her latest release is called “run”, a pop production infused with a hint of soul, also thanks to the way the vocals were written and produced. The tune has a chill vibe but it can easily hit you emotionally with its nostalgic mood, especially when Randy’s voice reaches the high notes: impressive talent!!
Sunset Capone – “Hopeless Eyes”
SUNSET CAPONE is an incredible artist, singer/songwriter and producer with over 10 years of experience, working on different projects and music genres.
His release “Hopeless Eyes” under his current project is definitely a tune we can’t miss out on this month: an emotional production that features rap and melodic vocal lines, with substantial and meaningful lyrics. The flow Sunset Capone is able to give to his rap lines is phenomenal, impressive, and remarkable, all garnished with a solid beat driven by melancholic guitars and nostalgic piano melodies.

Chandler – “In The Movies”
This month OuterSpace doesn’t lack incredible talents, and here we present you with another amazing one: CHANDLER.
Not yet the king of pop, but he’ll become it soon! His latest release “In The Movies” is an extremely high-quality production, with melodic instruments, powerful basses, clean and rhythmic drums.
Chandler’s voice leads the tune perfectly with his incredible skills, bringing us on a rollercoaster of emotions with its compelling lyrics and the perfect use of dynamic on the vocal lines.
Definitely a must-listen if you’re also a fan of artists like Lauv and Troye Sivan. Don’t miss out!
Tim Scott – “Escape to paradise”
Let’s get ready for some incredible vibes, and please fasten your seatbelts: a warm welcome to TIM SCOTT! This is a pure talent, singer/songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, Tim has an incredible style that will blow your mind at its best.
His latest release is called “Escape To Paradise”, and we’re gonna escape too while listening to it: An upbeat production with blues guitars, wobbly basses, and groovy drums! With vintage and minimal vocals, the tune is a real banger full of variety and impressive musical ideas.
This guy is incredibly creative, and we can say that this release is a pure form of art and we can’t stop listening to it. Too good, thanks to Tim for sharing with us such masterpieces!
Dorian – “Reign Love”
DORIAN is a singer and songwriter from New Jersey, US, with a stunning voice and some real singing skills. He released 2 albums in the last 2 years, letting us enjoy incredible tunes over this time. He’s now back with another single called “Reign Love”, where once again he proves himself to be an implausible artist.
The tune starts with a retro delayed pluck that plays a melodic loop, leading the rhythm of the track; the drum kit sound gives the track a kind of 80s sound, with a mysterious and evocative mood the tune guide us on a chill late evening.
Dorian’s vocal lines are out of this world, with a solid flow and a sentimental mood: a true R&B hit that can’t be missed out.
Planet Parlor – ”Easy // November”
PLANET PARLOR is the project of 2 incredible lads, formed by vocalist Liza Lynehan, and the multi-instrumentalist and producer Ben LeBeau. Making music together since 2020, they worked on numerous releases, with the latest ones released just a few weeks ago.
“Easy” and “November” are 2 indie/dreampop singles that are lyrically and emotionally connected together to tell the listener a story.
When listening to November, we got a deeply nostalgic feeling that brought us back to winter times, with its impressive change of rhythms and styles, from blues to ballad, the melodies here are incredibly remarkable.
Easy has also a nostalgic mood and some very creative and interesting ideas on the production side, with vocals that will easily bring your mind somewhere far from where it’s supposed to be: a surreal journey with these 2 impressive releases.
LXVE – “RINGLEADER”
The tragedy told by Lxve on Ringleader, really hits hard. The tune takes some elements from the emo trap but Lxve it is able to make it its own, telling the story circus performer who takes the blame for the murders of the Ringleader of the circus.
A bloody love story, which can be seen as a metaphor of a toxic relationship where the man is willing to do anything to protect his lover, even though the relationship itself is messed up.
Lxve reminded us of Lil Peep in some parts, anyway his vocals and melody open up the tune and the heartfelt performance really speaks to the audience.
Ty Thom – “Bet on Myself”
Follow Ty Thom and Bet On Yourself. His second single off his upcoming album is called BET ON MYSELF, an uplifting tune that will give the right charge for the day. The trap beat perfectly fits Ty Thom flow, which performs his bar flawlessly in the recording.
The production merges some chill elements with a trap 808 and drum, Ty Thom reminded as of established acts like 2chainz and Gucci Mane and we would definitely bet on him and would love to see him along with some of these names on a music festival. Ty Thom would perfectly fit the lineup on the Wireless festival here in the UK, and we really wish him the best, waiting for his upcoming album.
K.KAYNE – “Loco”
K.Kayne is a fresh artist based in Reading in the UK and his new track Loco shows all his skills in a unique way. A very peculiar style and production are what sets K.Kayne parts from other rappers, making him an artist to absolutely keep the eyes on.
The chorus on Loco is extremely catchy, and that’s a tune that would sound amazing on a club night here in London. It is not hard for us to think about this tune while dancing upstairs at the Heaven Club and screaming “I’m going Loco”. Best of luck to K.Kayne for his future tunes, and be sure to check this banger out.
Brave New Broken Hearts Club – “A Little Piece Of Me”
Brave New Broken Hearts Club is definitely one of the best names we heard for a music Project, and A Little Piece Of Me is the perfect tune to listen to on a lonely afternoon, when you don’t want to go outside and just want to enjoy yourself at home.
Brave New Broken Hearts Club reminded us of Oasis for his arrangement and guitars. Anyway the melody in the verse has some more spice that you don’t find in the usual brit rock tune. The project is based in London and we can definitely picture this tune to be played in a local bar in Camden like the Dublin Castle, accompanied by a pint of IPA.
Bekim! – “Close Your Eyes”
Bekim! is a singer-songwriter based in Germany, and he just released his last tune Close your Eyes. Bekim has multiple year of experience on his shoulder working with other projects like 2-BPM, Couche-Tard, Real 7, KMS, 2 Deep and El Toro.
Close Your Eyes is a tune that brings to our days the type of RnB music that we missed for a long time. Even though this would fit perfectly in the early 2000s on the radio next to A Craig David track, it also today brings that nice nostalgia that makes the song extremely catchy and highly re-listenable. If you miss RnB music, the real one, go listen to Bekim! now.
Laurentis & Maijah – “Know My Name”
We are overly excited about this one. That’s the collaboration we didn’t expect and once you listen to it you are overly obsessed with it. Laurentis and Maijah are two artists we already covered in our past articles, which we are super proud of, and it is incredibly dope to listen to them together on the same track. You can check our review for Laurentis here, and our article on Maijah here.
Know My Name, is the name of the song that came out from these two incredibly talented artists. The vocals here are flawless and showcase all the peculiarities of these two performers. Know My Name is a charming song, but cocky at the same time. It is the song that you want as a soundtrack on your night out before stepping into the club.
The production, mix and master are made entirely by Laurentis, and thanks to his producing skills he was able to create a perfect instrumental where both his and Maijah’s voices could sit and perform. Exquisite!!

XIT – “XIT (EP)”
XIT is a non-binary producer based in Miami, United States. They just released their new EP called XIT, and we loved it. That was definitely a trip in different genres and influences that somehow changed us and inspired us. Put Billie Eilish’s music on LSD and you will have XIT’s genre.
The sound design in this release is extremely well-curated, as it stays consistent throughout all the tracks, while XIT perform over different genres including trip-hop, drum and bass, and RnB.
@ Ur Door might definitely be the most accessible tune, but we suggest you dive into this experience, and you’re going to dive into an incredibly well-produced release (produced by XIT themselves by the way). We loved every single song in the EP, but Excu$es would definitely be the one we would crave to listen to on one of their show.
Specialists – “I Got You”
The new tune from the New York-based band Specialists is called I Got You, an uplifting tune about friendship that will give you the right energies to cope with all the obstacles of the day.
The bassline here slaps really hard, harder than Will Smith’s slap on Chris Rock. Seriously, this tune brings the funky genre to w new level, always keeping its catchiness and pop-influence.
The tune also evolves at the end with a more modern rock style, which overall reminded us of some of the newest Don Broco releases. Great Stuff!!
And this was our third volume of “Outer Space”, our easter is definitely going to be way cooler thanks to all these talented artists, and we really hope you are going to enjoy them too.
See you on our next Outer Space travel.
