If you haven’t encountered Tep No’s latest single yet despite it having enraptured plenty of ears in the week or so it’s been out and about, get ready to float to the heavens on Eighteen and its nostalgic strumming chill house. The Toronto beat maker, songwriter, and vocalist wrote the earnest and heartfelt deep house aria as an homage to his teenage years. Tep No remarks, “I want to apologize to my parents, because they had to deal with a kid who was delusional about having a music career, and I know it was tough on them. I did get a Masters Degree because of them, and for that I am thankful. Now I have my own little family and my career, and I don’t see them as often as I’d like, and so I appreciate seeing them when I can. Growing up, I appreciate those days now a lot more then back then, when I was broke and wasn’t performing shows with Chainsmokers or Steve Aoki haha. ‘Eighteen’ is an apologetic song dedicated to them and I know they’ll appreciate.” Well, we’re glad Tep No went after his dreams and proved he wasn’t delusional after all.

Glastonbury trio Dive In unleashed a massive synthpop jam today, in the form of Eighteen. The magnificent song is an immediately endearing Passion Pit meets Urban Cone with some Magic Man anthem. Sugary sweet and radiantly synthy, Eighteen is a song that will certainly put Dive In on the music map for many new adoring fans. The uplifting, exhilarating track is taken from Dive In’s debut five song EP to be released on Vagrant Records.
