Following the danceable “Jezebel” and genre-dynamic fan favorite, “Maybe You’re The Reason,” “Better Than Me” displays a softer, more reflective side of LA-based duo CLOUDxCITY.
From their perspective, “‘Better Than Me’ is a confident post breakup love/hate letter to all our exes.” With early support from Ones To Watch, Earmilk, and Early Rising, CLOUDxCITY welcomes 2023 with another track written, produced, and entirely creatively directed by TAS and ENJEL alone.
Meet CLOUDxCITY, the music duo composed of Enjel (singer/songwriter/producer) and TAS (producer/DJ/songwriter). TAS and Enjel may come from radically different backgrounds, but their natural chemistry and love for music creation brought them together after a lifetime of writing and producing.

After years of bouncing from city to city and one near-death experience, Rochester’s Enjel settled in LA as a solo artist and songwriter/producer/vocalist. After briefly exploring the world of cinema and directing, LA-native TAS grew into a songwriter/producer who experienced behind-the-scenes success.
Individually they both wrote, produced, and engineered for notable artists like Selena Gomez, Meg Thee Stallion, YG, Zedd, Eminem, and more. Although grateful for their careers to take off as writers and producers, they longed to create something more meaningful for themselves. When their paths finally crossed at Rock Mafia’s studio, the mutual respect and chemistry was palpable.
CLOUDxCITY was essentially born from the 2020 pandemic where the pair had nothing but time to develop this new partnership. Their unique yet complementary energies to construct a hypnotic fusion of hip hop, electronic, and dark pop sonics that they have coined “existential hip hop.”
The dynamic duo now readies for their 2023 debut project, entirely crafted by the vast minds of TAS and Enjel alone.
