Introducing Figgy from somewhere between NYC and Boston in the United States and his track ‘Take It Back (Feat. Angelica Bess)’
Take It Back is a hopeful back up tune, reminding the listener that sometimes the best way to mend a broken heart is dancing it out. The first in a series of singles Figgy recorded with Brooklyn vocalist Angelica Bess (Body Language), Take It Back marks a turning point for the producer, moving heavier into songwriting and recording of live instruments. Live bass, warm pads and catchy guitar riffs lay down the bed for Angelica’s soulful vocals to pull right on the heart strings. While the subject of heartbreak may be a familiar trope, it’s the honesty and simplicity that make the tune stand out. The slight influence of 80’s R&B and boogie ads a feeling of nostalgia, but with enough modern elements to keep you in the present. With super catchy vocals, don’t be surprised when you find yourself singing along after just a few listens and wanting more of that funky catchy guitar!
Monday’s are always the worst but not when you come across remixes like this from Silience and Rizer who have done an absolutely smashing job of remixing Lost Frequencies Beautiful Life. Absolutely love the driving melodic lead throughout the track, very catchy!
And better yet, it’s a free download, which you can grab here

After a heavy night out of partying on a Saturday night with the Perfect Havoc family, some chilled out dance music is exactly what’s needed and Benjamin Carlise suits that need perfectly!
The stand out track for us from his debut EP ‘World’ is ‘Wave’ also featuring Hakos.
The name Moonboy Inc. masks the project of the berlin-based artist and producer Christoph Rymon. With foundations of piano based dance music, the tracks hold their roots in the decade of icons like Snap and Dr. Alban combining inspiration from Stardust, The Talking Heads and Daft Punk.
Rymon is not quite interested in melancholic sounds, and instead directs the Moonboy Inc manner towards sunny hemispheres of joy and carefree intensity.
The multi-instrumentalist spends every second in his studio to get his sound to the next level. One of the reasons why his soundscape has an unmistakable style, is the story of a piano sample which comes from a 120 year old piano passed down from his grandfather. The lyrics are straightforward and sparkle through their simplicity. Further the words that make clear “less is more” when you want to say: “I love you so”.
“Postcards from the Moon” originated from an abstract idea: A world where an artist is in isolation with nothing apart from his laptop and his piano. What place is better to suit this dream than the moon? However, in this situation it may be a bit tricky to connect with the one you love. Therefore, the mission is clear: send postcards from the moon and “Hope you doing well and that I’ll see you soon.”
GARLYN is becoming quite the regular here at Perfect Havoc but this producer just keeps on smashing it with every track he uploads on Soundcloud!
This time he delivers an eclectic slow tempo monster with a drop that will make you want to get off your sofa and wanna body lock till your heats content !
Eclipse is also available as a free download here
