Reigen on the rooftop


Brooklyn-based indie pop artist REIGEN has released a smooth electronic cover of the classic Foreigner hit “I Want To Know What Love Is”. The video highlights intimate glimpses of REIGEN’s artistic life coupled with cinematic visuals of New York City.

REIGEN is a Brooklyn based singer-songwriter and producer who creates hook-laden, heart driven synth pop.

He recently announced his debut EP, 5 Nights in America. Exuberant and emotional, the mini-album is about the passion of being young and in love in America. The album will be released in individual tracks and videos in the first months of 2016. The EP consists of 5 songs set across the country from LA to Vegas to Brooklyn, sharing love stories from the first kiss to the last goodbye.

5 Nights in America features cinematic lyrics, eclectic electronic beats and REIGEN’s smooth, bright vocals. Intense, beautiful moments come to life: emotions flow from thrilling excitement to deep nostalgia as the music morphs from hard dance to pulsing synth ballads.

Come Back to Me, the only track released so far from the mini-album, has been called a ‘heavenly’ ‘jewel’ with ‘distinctive rich vocals’. Rad Circle praised the accompanying video, directed by REIGEN, for its ‘beautiful silhouettes and psychedelic editing’ that make you ‘feel like you’re a part of the story’.

“I want to take you to far off places, touch your heart and make you dance for your life” - REIGEN

Constantly inspired by the energy and freedom of New York dance floors, REIGEN’s dream is to bring people together and make them feel fully alive. True to this goal, his high-energy live performances are infectious dance-a-thons and guaranteed crowd-pleasers.

Over the past two years, REIGEN has released five singles -- from smooth electronica track ‘Another Dimension’ to the summer anthem ‘Good Love’.

He has been featured on dozens of local and international music blogs, including A Music Blog, Yea?, Skope Mag, Son of Marketing and Sodwee. REIGEN’s blend of influences -- most clearly new wave, disco, R&B and modern pop -- has been compared to Mika, Sam Smith and Zak Waters. His music has been called ‘infectiously catchy’ and ‘magnetically inviting.’
