CLOUDxCITY may be an unlikely pairing– an East coast nomad and a West coast poet– but their sound couldn’t be more cohesive.
The energetic Enjel (singer/songwriter/producer) and enigmatic TAS (producer/DJ/songwriter) came together in late 2019. Before this, however, Enjel spent years “bouncing from city to city working different music industry jobs”, with “one near-death experience”, until ultimately settling in LA as a solo artist, while TAS dipped his toe into cinema and directing before settling in as a producer and songwriter.
“Individually they both wrote, produced, and engineered for notable artists like Selena Gomez, Meg Thee Stallion, the Ying Yang Twins, Cee-Lo Green, YG, Zedd, Eminem, Quavo, Bahari, and more.”
The duo was born out of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, a time when the pair had little else to do. Their sound is a fusion of hip-hop, electronic, and dark pop that they call “existential hip-hop”. They describe themselves as “mysterious but not brazen, futuristic but not detached, provocative yet still welcoming and relatable.”
CLOUDxCITY’s latest track, ‘Better Than Me’, is a spunky track for all the brokenhearted. Though softer than their previous tracks, this cool track is perfect for all the lonely hearts on Valentine’s Day.
“‘Better Than Me’ is a confident post breakup love/hate letter to all our exes,” they explain.
Fans of Trevor Daniel, The Kid LAROI, and Justin Bieber should check out this track.

From producers to writers, women have been the arbiters of some of the most influential pieces of art. D.C.-based Colombian singer, songwriter, and first-time Wammie nominee Laura Luv talks to contributing writer Margaret Adams about her background, as well as how her Colombian heritage and women have inspired her music, especially through her newest self-titled EP, Laura Luv, and why the presence of women and female representation is important in the music industry.
