Pushing the boundaries of music and tech, a CON THE ARTIST live show features “iCon,” his live virtual assistant, that’s “programmed from the future.” An artist to his core, this South African-Canadian multi-disciplinary bleeds creativity into anything he touches. From writing and producing to film scoring and sound design, CON has his hands in all aspects of his art.
Now, with a team that includes powerhouse manager Timothee Youngson (of Lorde fame) and Wax Records (UMC/Virgin Music), this project is ready to take off into the stratosphere. His latest single is in his signature vein of cheeky songwriting with a wholesome message. “All In” was inspired by summertime and sounds like the first day of summer with your boo.
Commenting on the single, CON THE ARTIST states:
“It’s about all of the small things a partner can do for you that makes you ‘All In’ to the relationship. It’s the willingness to leave behind the single life and dive headfirst into a relationship you know will be good for you. This song is about the initial first steps of that phase.”

Joseph Luca has shared the newest installment in his three-part EP series, PART 2: Ouroboros (Death), out now via ONErpm. The new five-track project follows last year’s entry, PART 1: Ouroboros (Life).
Via PART 2: Ouroboros (Death), Luca embarks on an introspective odyssey, navigating a profound shift from idealism to realism amidst the intricate realms of Love, Loss, Life, and Death. This segment unfurls as a deeply personal expedition, charting Joseph’s inner struggles and triumphs within a complex tapestry of emotions and experiences.
At the core of Luca’s journey lies a series of poignant moments, where the collision of his ideals with life’s stark truths serves as the beginning catalyst for deep self-reflection. His once unyielding idealistic perspective begins to fracture when confronted with the profound depths of life’s challenges.
It’s a journey steeped in introspection, where Joseph confronts deep-seated fears, insecurities, and long-held beliefs, leading him toward an unburdened and authentic self. Ultimately, “Ego Death” surfaces as a central theme in PART 2: Ouroboros (Death). Luca undergoes a profound shedding of outdated perceptions and attachments, cultivating a newfound resilience rooted in the acceptance of life’s impermanence. This theme highlights the intricate dance between upheaval and personal growth, emphasizing the immense capacity within individuals not just to endure but ideally, to evolve.
PART 2: Ouroboros (Death) Track Listing:
1. I Can Pull You Up
