Peter Aristone's single 'Sunlight' has become the official anthem of 2015 Winter Universiade.
Universiade is a multi-sport event for university athletes and it is often referred to as university olympic games. Its winter edition will take place next year in Peter's home country Slovakia.
The song Sunlight is featured in the official video spot which will be aired on Eurosport, the main broadcaster of the event. You can watch the video below. In addition, Peter will also be performing live at the opening ceremony in High Tatras, Slovakia and his music will be used at the medal ceremonies during the sporting event.
The organizers of 2015 Winter Universiade in Slovakia said that the event has great international importance and it is mostly about young people and students. "Peter Aristone appeals to the young generation and he has proved that his music transcends borders. Sunlight is a perfect song for us," explained the members of the Universiade organizing committee.
"It is a great honour for me and my music," Peter Aristone added.
17-year-old British singer-songwriter Bobbie Shepherd has started to write material for her debut album. And she has got some first class support from the renowned producer and songwriter Sacha Skarbek. Sacha is know for his works with Adele, Lana Del Rey, James Blunt and most recently Miley Cyrus. Bobbie and Sacha have both agreed to work together on the full album. We can't wait to hear the first songs.
"It's important to be honest - not least with yourself. Too often, people bottle up their feelings, refuse to reveal what's going on under the surface. It's a topic Suzerain know all too well. The London five piece seem able to piece to the heart of the matter, to push past the boundaries placed in their way. New track 'Good Day' deals with this directly." read more and listen to the track on the renowned music mag Clasmusic.com

These songs hand-picked by L.A. based electronic artist Carmen Rizzo, released under a label partnership of his Electrofone Music with Bratislava based Exitab Label and Brainzone International, deliver a wide range of "the new and upcoming".
Though they all come from small scene of, you might say, "where-the-hell-is-this" city their music is at least equally interesting as artists they already supported: Teebs, Bibio, Jamie Woon, Emeralds, Dam Mantle etc. Recent years brought new wave of upcoming talents from Central and Eastern Europe and this is yet another example. From hard to define genre fusions, to post-dubstep, to recent club vibes this record gives the listening a mesmerizing journey beneath the city which is definitely worth exploring...if not physically then at least sonically.
As mentioned above, you can buy the compilation worldwide on iTunes and Beatport and within the Czech and Slovak territory it is available on Bandcamp.
