Born and raised in Russia, in the city of Rostov-on-Don, Thexele (aka Elena Selezneva) has always dreamed of a life as an entertainer, starting on piano from the age of 3, and composing music on her synthesister from when she turned 16.

EDM pop artist Damon Fletcher has released his fresh new single, ‘2 Miles’, inspired by his love for travel and itchy feet wanting to get out there.

James Freeman-Turner’s nom de plume, Hēran Soun, comes with an interesting story. The artist was born with severe hearing loss, which became total loss over time.

The result has been an obsession with music, and a unique perspective on sound.
