Drug Boulevard is the newly minted Istanbul-based dream pop label from the founders of the celebrated Turkish progressive/trance label, Blue Soho. As an introduction, the label is releasing a compilation, named DRUB BLVD after the label, on February 17th nearly two years in the making due to logistics and geopolitical occurrences during that time in Turkey. Mastered by renowned engineer Barry Grint of Alchemy UK, the collection features new and exclusive songs from artists spanning the globe, including ACES, Astronautica, FMLYBND, DAUNT, Leo Kalyan, SRNO (feat. MOONZz), Mammals) and GOSTO. The artists were selected, according to founder Kubilay, for “doing something brilliant and inspiring,” while “doing everything they do for all the right reasons.”
The first reveal comes from rising Brooklyn singer ACES, who has slowly been gaining traction over the last year with her downtempo slant of pop music in singles “I’m Already Gone” and “If I Could Be Your Girl”.” “Just Cut It Out” is effervescent track blending hazing vocals with romantic synths and delicately crafted production stirring emotions, while soothing at same time.
