Italo-Greek duo, Iotaphi have received a nomination from the Berlin Music Video Awards for their single, Kids of Chaos, and it’s easy to see why. The deeply atmospheric, multi-layered electronic anthem features performances by dancers with Down Syndrome – not in a manner that is intending to evoke pity, in fact, quite the opposite – it reinforces the track’s message of the triumph of the human spirit against apathy and ignorance. Classy, profound stuff.
Complex, imaginative and out of this world, once you hear the new track by Adam 888, you’ll think you’ve left the planet and traveled to others, after watching the music video, you’ll know that you’ve been transported. So if your a music lover, be sure to check him out:

…just to make you feel even colder, Roman Zayat, a Russian deep house artist who has moved on from a previous musical life as a more traditional singer-songwriter to embrace the high-production values of techno and house.
