Electronic

Rising Indonesian Indie Artist, Wandour, Captures the Essence of Summer Nights with His Dreamy, Hard-Hitting House Anthem, ‘Away’.

Amidst the rising temperature of summer, Wandour unveils his latest single, “Away,” set to hit all major streaming platforms on July 22. Known for his “almost crystalline like” riffs and captivating melodies, Wandour is an indie electronic music producer hailing from Jakarta, Indonesia.

With his latest track “Away,” Wandour aims to transport listeners into a dreamlike summer night’s journey, where fluffy white clouds mingle with the stars and moon. Discussing his use of analog equipment to produce his trademark sweet, saccharine synth sounds, Wandour shared, “I often enhance my synth with a mix of rainbow and cosmic dust, along with sand from my hometown beach,” he said, half-jokingly. This whimsical approach underscores the unique, ethereal quality of his music.

Wandour shared his thoughts on his latest release, stating, “‘Away’ is more than just a song; it’s a gateway to a tranquil realm. I aimed to craft a track that captures the warmth and freedom of summer while offering a sonic retreat from daily life. I hope it becomes a cherished companion for many during their most treasured moments this season.”

“Away” marks a distinctive highlight in Wandour’s evolving discography, masterfully combining a potent, hard hitting acidic bass line with ethereal, dreamy synths and vocals. This track captures the essence of a vibrant and eclectic summer night, making it a perfect addition to any serotonin mood driven beach music playlist, pool party, or summer night drive.

Wandour’s unique ability to fuse pop, synth-wave, electro, house, and techno stems from his extensive back and forth shuttling between London, Shanghai, and Jakarta. “I simply gather all the different inspirations from these places and blend them into something I’d love to play while relaxing on the beach,” Wandour explained from one of his studio in Shanghai.

Looking ahead, Wandour remains dedicated to advancing the frontiers of electronic music in his hometown. He is passionate about leveraging his music to unite diverse audiences, showcasing electronic music as a universal language with the power to bring people together.

You can preview the track on Wandour’s SoundCloud and Youtube channel: https://on.soundcloud.com/8kV5qnCy3k21kwG97

Ralo’s Redemption, Atlanta Rapper Buys Block, Builds City’s First Vine City Mosque

Ralo

Ralo has faced numerous challenges in recent years, but his recent freedom from a halfway house marks the beginning of a new chapter. The Atlanta rapper recently announced a monumental achievement: purchasing an entire block in Atlanta, complete with various commercial properties, and planning to establish the first Vine City Mosque in Georgia’s history.

In a heartfelt Instagram post, Ralo emphasized his commitment to leaving behind his old ways and embracing a life of personal and financial freedom. “The folks sent me to federal prison, took everything from me and left my family out hea with NOTHING,” he shared. “I ran this s**t back up legally. I won’t ever have to sell a piece of dope again in my life. I’ve become a restaurant, hair salon, barber shop, and clothing store owner. Allah has blessed me to open up the first #VineCityMosque in the history of Atlanta.”

Ralo’s transformation is not just personal but also entrepreneurial. He proudly mentioned owning multiple condos across from the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, marking a significant shift from his previous life. “I won’t ever in my life have to rent another condo again,” he declared. He encouraged fans to watch his journey in “Ralo Chapter 38 | Hood Hero #OutNow on YouTube” and to support his cause by donating through FamericaNews.Com.

Despite his new path, Ralo remains true to the principles that guided him in the past. Reflecting on Trontavious Stephens’ testimony in the Young Thug and YSL RICO case, he stated, “Man ain’t no way Shawty just got on that stand against his childhood friend. I rather die ah thousand deaths before I do some s**t like that.” As Ralo embarks on this new journey, his story of redemption and resilience is sure to inspire many.
