Premiere: Blasko – Japanese Hotel

New from Melbourne AU artist and producer Blasko is “Japanese Hotel”. A cool blend of darker R&B-inspired tones and a French house-leaning main break, “Japanese Hotel” was inspired by a dream. Blasko says, “‘Japanese Hotel’ was written about a dream I had. I never remember dreams, but I remember waking up after this one, saying. “Woah.. I need to write a song about this”. A+ track. Stream the B3SCI Premiere of Blasko’s “Japanese Hotel” below.

Premiere: Ryan Egan – Won’t You Be the One

The great Ryan Egan is back with a new record in the form of “Won’t You Be the One”. We’re digging the track’s midtempo 70’s-esque aesthetic and the brand new video for the song (which we’re very pleased to premiere at B3SCI!). Egan collaborated with co-director Amanda Taylor Evans for the “Won’t You Be the One” vid and describes his aim in matching the track’s feel, “We wanted to create a visual that complimented the slow-melting, sleepy groove of the track and I thought it’d be rad to base it all around a slowly rotating Spike Lee style dolly shot.”

Stream the B3SCI Premiere of Ryan Egan’s video for the excellent track Won’t You Be the One below.

About “Bad’s” lyric Keller says, ““there was an absence of resolution, and that was the hardest part.” We’re pleased to B3SCI Premiere “Bad” by Sky Keller below.
