“Feeling The Blues” is Digital Nomad's second release on friskybeat records.

This new song will sail your soul into uncharted territories. Andre Stepanian takes a different approach on this track and begins by laying down a stirring synth flute, followed by gutsy guitar chords, and a spirited melody. In the breakdown Andre gets funky and adds chunky piano chords to reinforce the tenacious tone of the track. Luis Machuca’s artful programming and swift arrangements builds a heavy beat with big peaks and deep drops to compliment Andre's musical landscape. Adding subtle and smooth changes and also a couple of evocative vocal samples to enhance the mighty organic and bold digital sounds to create the mysterious and soulful mood of “Feeling The Blues”

"Dip It In Soul Rework" is performed by House Producer and Live Performer Ly Cheng. Ly, was able to capture the essence of "Feeling The Blues" and mould Andre Stepanian and Luis Machuca’s sounds into his own unique fusion of an international soulful chillin' house groove.

“Luna” is Digital Nomad's third release on friskybeat records.

Digital Nomads third release Luna is a predominantly Latin based song with a symbolic message embracing the power of the moon's dominance and the ability to alter your emotions. Andrea Stepanian is a gifted and talented composer. Andre will dazzle you with his stunning originality, playing melodies, riffs, and chords for Luna that will melt your soul.

Luis Machuca writes the lyrics to Luna that were inspired by Andre's composition and performance. In fact, the words are written in Spanish to convey the depth, warmth, and passion of the song's message. The illuminating vocals are performed by Colombian singer Daniela Carmona. Her sultry voice helps carry out the true essence of the moons emotions. At the same time, Luis gets funky on the drums giving the original mix a live “make you feel good” vibe and gives the second mix a more distinctive deep house sound.

Lastly, we welcome DJ Lucho to the friskybeat record label.
DJ Lucho rework mix gives Luna a new persona, making it a smooth, dreamlike sound that takes you back to the early house days.
This mix will definitely be a crowd pleaser. Arriva!!!
