“DEFY NORMALITY” This is what Dwight Rowland, better known as Euforium, is all about. If you want to see someone who pushes the limits of creativity, questions industry norms, and is as full-circle authentic as they come, then Euforium is the artist to follow. It’s not an idea, it’s a promise. His inspiration draws from niche genres such as nordic folk, cinematic score, and experimental bass. Through years of arduous experimentation, learning, and trial and error, he has successfully fused all of these elements together to pioneer an entirely new genre of dark, melodic dance music. He has distinguished himself with a sonic signature unlike any other. If you try to find an artist with a similar sound, you won’t find one. This is not an accident, it is by design. Euforium has 2 releases under Simplify Recordings released in early 2020, with “Blood Omen” garnering over 100k streams. Past projects have been self released and have gained support from various tastemakers around the web. Euforium grew up in northern California and briefly attended college before deciding to join the US Navy in 2014. His interest in music began when he started playing guitar in his early life. He was then introduced to electronic music production from a friend. What started as a fun hobby evolved over the years into a passion that has been ingrained in him since discovery. Throughout his time in the military he has traveled the world, serving as a helicopter aircrewman and rescue swimmer. He completed his active duty enlistment of 6 years with the Navy in early 2020 and has relocated to Los Angeles to attend Icon Collective. His focus is now entirely on the pursuit of his musical career. Euforium will not just be a name you hear, it will be a name you know.

Great track! The production is on point and I like the dark hip hop fused with the dubstep. I would suggest sending this out to some dubstep focused labels. Deadbeats, Circus, Never Say Die, and Buygore are a few that come to mind. If you plan on doing a self release I would suggest sending it out to some dubstep focused blogs to get so attention. Hope that helps. Great work!
Hey Dwight, I hope you're good Track is OK but the biggest issue is your arrangement which does not work Please see the screenprint here: https://we.tl/t-c0Ve6ReS1y You have one 24 bar section of vocals, then later a 16 bar section of vocals, then later a 12 bar section of vocals (all the yellow sections). These should be equal, and ideally 16 bars only. You have a random section (light green) And then later it all goes a bit all over the place The sounds themselves are good, the rap strong, but you have got to get the rest to work properly Fix the arrangement into a more traditional verse chorus style set up and it will work properly And no. just because you are making dubstep influenced rap it does not mean proper structures for tracks go out of the window. 90% of the parts you need are already in this track, you just need to fix them. Also, only one breakdown should be in there. Do it more than once and you lessen the impact. Once that is all sorted please send again In addition you should do an instrumental. And definitely then pitch for sync uses in the USA especially if you need any more info please feel free to hit me back; I'm looking forward to hearing a fixed version! As a very rough guide I put an arrangement together in Logic: https://we.tl/t-RBwR19BhYf This is obviously not definitive, more an example of what I mean. You will want to use the lyrics and builds properly as opposed to my hatchet job!
Hey Euforium - I'm really liking this goth / rap direction. There's definitely a lane for you here as I don't think anyone is really doing this. To be honest - I liked the the trappy drop - but on the other hand - it sounded just as fresh or a "new genre" without it and maybe the drop was a little expected? Have you tried submitting to the EDM District, Trap Nations and the like - think that that is definitely a lane you should pursue. Also finding UGC playlisters that might be able to support on Spotify. I also like the artwork here - feels like there is some mystique and "mythology" you could create around the project. I think if you build the culture around the project - the fans will come. Not sure if it's quite right for my projects / blog / label but I do think you are on to something with this genre lane - goth dark beats / rap. Someone could take that lane over.
