Continuing his clear trajectory to the top, French-German artist CYMO builds on the buzz from previous JUSTN X and Le Boeuf collaboration Game Over with new release Jetlag, out today on all major DSPs.
The single, with its brass FX, muted guitar, padded percussion and dreamy vocal topline, has already proved itself a fan favourite, so much so that when CYMO offered up 50% of the track’s master rights via new platform biddz, he had his hand practically snapped off by fans eager to get in on a slice of the CYMO action, the entire bid selling out in just 29 minutes!
“I’m overwhelmed by the feedback,” CYMO said. “At first I was worried if anyone would even be interested in my music NFT, then we sold out after only 29 minutes! That’s just insane.”
Jetlag is a slice of earworm perfection, a fact that’s hardly surprising when you consider CYMO has already had a significant career writing hits for the likes of Alle Farben, Aloe Blacc, Tropkillaz, CRO, HUGEL, Scooter, Sean Kingston and Brown & Grey, among others. Now turning his hand to his own release schedule, it’s clear from the early reaction to ‘Jetlag’ and the continuing success of Game Over that CYMO is on course to produce a slew of major hits for himself as well. And that success is likely to be amplified by fans who bought biddz of Jetlag are now actively involved in pushing the track’s awareness across their own social channels. The more streams and downloads Jetlag has, the more they’ll receive when the royalty checks come rolling in.
For Simon Adrian – better known to fans as fast rising German star Cymo – 2022 looks set to be a major breakout year. The Trier-born, Frankfurt-based producer and songwriter has been undeniably rising up the ranks over the past few years, with credits on 160 releases and 10 albums, seven of which made it into the Top 30 on the German charts, three of those hitting the ultimate #1 spot. His skills called into play for a whole host of A-list artists (Alle Farben, Aloe Blacc, Tropkillaz, CRO, HUGEL, Scooter, Sean Kingston, Brown & Gray), across multiple different genres (electronica, pop, R&B, country), Cymo has shown no limits to his prowess inside the studio. In 2019 Cymo signed with Stefan Dabruck Management (Robin Schulz, Felix Jaehn, Alle Farben), quickly becoming one of their hottest new names. With multiple music releases in the pipeline from Spring of 2022 onward, and releasing them via the brand new biddz app, Cymo proves once again that he’s ahead of the curve both musically and logistically. Working with biddz, Cymo will blow the door wide open on what true fan engagement can look like in this brave new musical world, ushering in a new era for the music industry worldwide.
