In recent years, Israel has witnessed an extraordinary surge in its electronic pop music landscape, captivating audiences with an infusion of innovation and imagination. Spearheading this dynamic movement are visionary artists like Elsi Doll, Nadav Guedj, Shay Gabso, Dudi Bar David, and Mika Moshe, all brought together by the brilliant writer and producer Shay Pinto.
At the core of this musical revolution lies a harmonious blend of cutting-edge electronic beats and captivating pop melodies, reflecting the country’s rich cultural diversity and contemporary spirit. Elsi Doll’s enchanting single, “Who Does She Think She Is,” delves into introspection with mesmerizing synth sounds, pushing the boundaries of creativity.
Nadav Guedj, a true musical prodigy, has left an indelible mark with infectious tracks that fuse pop sensibility and electronic prowess. His songs exude unbridled energy and vibrant rhythms, transcending linguistic barriers to reach global audiences.
Shay Gabso’s “Red Heart” resonates with its heartfelt lyricism and pulsating electro-pop production. The track’s emotional depth takes listeners on a sonic journey of self-discovery and vulnerability.
Dudi Bar David’s electrifying beats coupled with Shay Pinto’s impeccable production prowess have redefined the sonic landscape, resulting in chart-topping hits and critical acclaim.
Mika Moshe’s “You Can Tell by My Face” showcases Shay Pinto’s exceptional talents once more, creating a sonic masterpiece that boasts bold experimentation and thought-provoking lyrics.
Collectively, these artists have not only elevated Israel’s electronic pop music scene but also garnered international attention, demonstrating the country’s creative prowess on the global stage. As each artist continues to push boundaries and embrace innovation, their contributions to the genre serve as an enduring testament to the importance of artistic vision and groundbreaking production in shaping the future of music. Israel’s electronic pop music scene is now a pulsating force, and with talents like Shay Pinto leading the charge, the world can expect a riveting continuation of this captivating musical journey.
As an imaginative pop vocalist and truly original producer, we feel that Shay Pinto’s reputation already precedes him; in addition, he has written and produced for his own solo act Pinto, his bands Another Dead End and Lomipo, and many top charting Israeli hits as Mergui’s All is see through and Whatever Will Be, Tapas & Truphonas for the superstar Omer Adam, What About Me of Amit Shauly, and the Yossi Banai tribute band. We can’t wait for his upcoming releases hopefully this year and he soon will be plugging at it even more with a new band’s tour.
His song Snow White (of his Lomipo duet with drummer Orian Rose) is an upbeat pop rap crossover, reflective and gripping as any good piece of music should, dropping surprising hits just as soon as the time is right. Looking at other works with his Another Dead End and solo act Pinto – we see musical acts with equal parts delicacy and weight about their creative expression, with subtle riffs and dreamy quietness. It’s good to keep Pinto in mind as the jarringly good modern pop vocalist of our time that you should constantly keep in mind. Give his music the place that it deserves on your playlists.

Wojtek Deregowski Highlights Caban Drummer Fest 2022
Over many years, Wojtek Deregowski’s tasteful drums work has graced the works of his influential ensembles with the successful Tina Karol, Rosalie, Sorry Boys, Bartek, and Dario Imaz, earning him a name as one of the best contemporary, and more specifically rock and pop drummers of his generation in Poland. Deregowski began his solo (and bands) career serving up a tasteful amalgam of intricate rhythmic lines over chugging, sensual modern rock grooves. Wojtek takes a more untraditional, metal-tinged approach to drums, favouring a rich, mellow toms tone and combining horn-like melodies with subtle chord sequences. Wojtek always takes a very exraordinary and innovative approach to building his own drum sets. At this particular festival he incorporated a second snare drum that served both as a fat meaty groove backbeat as well as perfectly tuned second tom tom when wires were off. Another clever addition to the kit – on the left Wojtek used a very interesting stack made of five bent cymbals that gave off the sound strikingly similar to an electronic clap sample.
Even though Wojtek may sound a little too technical to some, he has been a major force in the Polish scene, and helped establishing acclaimed halls (such as the National Stadium Warsaw, Hala Stulecia Wrocław, Netto Arena – Szczecin, Amfiteatr w Opolu – Opole, Palladium Warsaw, and Stodola – Warsaw) as a most forward thinking venues in the nation. And to add on top of all that, he is repeatedly featured as one of the scene’s most respected beat makers in the important professional Polish drums and music magazines, Perkusista Magazine, Info Drum, Poczuj Rytm, and Info Music. His week-long performances (of his highlighted solo sets, as well as a spectacular 4 drum sets concert) at the major Caban Drummer Fest 2022 was indeed, admittedly, the most distinct drums production of the season, and unequivocally underscored his stature as the preeminent drummer, effectively distinguishing him from his musical peers.
Later in 2022 Wojtek could have been seen performing at the prestigious stage of Tam Tam Festival in Seville Spain. Teatro Central – this time this famous venue with tradition was filled with explosive sounds of the electronic drums. Combined with Wojtek’s musicality and innovative approach created a performance never to be forgotten by all the audience that visited the festival.
