Newest Love: Gibbz – “Bright Lights”

gibbz

Gibbz first single + lyric video “Bright Lights” is  from his upcoming EP Oh My God out 12/16. When talking about the track Gibbz said, “Bright Lights was the first track written for the record. It’s about a night out with friends on whatever drugs you can find. The bright light is referring to how some substances can cause lights and colors to be more vibrant. The pacing of the track and its build of instrumentation are to show how there’s a delicate balance between taking just the right amount, and going too far.” You can catch Gibbz on tour this fall with Dragonette and also, check out his podcast “Drinking With Gibbz”.

In 2014, New York native Mike Gibney wanted to get away from his past, working for touring artists as a sound engineer and tour manager, to focus on writing and recording his own music. His debut EP Who Gibbz a F#@$ showed that he was no longer content with being behind the scenes, but rather yearned for the spotlight. Following up with the Chardonnay EP, he aligned himself with other artists that began to see him more as a peer, than a hired hand. He toured extensively through the US and Europe with Gramatik, Cherub, Exmag, Ghost Beach, and the Floozies before independently releasing his first full-length album, Above Water in 2016. Gibbzwill finish off 2016 with another EP titled Oh My God, before tackling his first headlining tour beginning in 2017.

New Music: 3LAU – “How You Love Me” (feat. Bright Lights)

Listen: 3LAU – How You Love Me (feat. Bright Lights)

Las Vegas electronic dance music producer and artist 3LAU just revealed his brand new single “How You Love Me” featuring Bright Lights on iTunes and other digital retailers today. This marks his first release through Casablanca and Republic Records, formally initiating this exciting partnership for the 22-year-old impresario.

“How You Love Me” teeters between propulsive and powerful house music production and the impassioned and inimitable vocals of Grammy Award-nominated singer Bright Lights. It’s a slick, smooth, and sexy anthem meant to make listeners dance the world over.

Already, BPM and Radio One’s Danny Howard have embraced the track, and it has garnered enthusiastic support from Tiësto, Nicky Romero, and Hardwell. The track arrives hot on the heels of last year’s “Escape” [featuring Paris & Simo], which landed in Beatport’s Top 3 and peaked at 23 on Billboard’s Dance/ Mix Show Chart. It’s easy to love this irresistible major label debut from 3LAU.

The song hits the web just in time for his first performance at Ultra Music Festival in Miami on the Worldwide Stage March 28 at 5pm alongside some of the genre’s biggest names. That’s not the only gig on deck this week for him though. He’ll be rocking a total of ten high-profile shows for Miami Music Week.

With his own self-proclaimed “Dance Floor Filth” sound, 3LAU is quickly becoming an EDM phenomenon. Self-taught on piano, guitar, and drums at five-years-old, he built a faithful fan base at a rapid rate with “Escape” in 2013. In addition, he also hosts his own “3LAU HAUS” podcast, which draws thousands of listeners monthly.

The year of 3LAU is underway…

Tour Dates:
3/26 – Dim Mak Poop Party @ The Raleigh Hotel, 1775 Collins, 9:30pm
3/27 – The Alienware Landing Tour @ Studio 743, 743 Washington Ave, 10:30pm
