‘The Light’, is the latest single from SBTRKT’S forthcoming album Wonder Where We Land out later this month. The track features some stellar vocals from British songstress Denai Moore, powered by a heavy, and fact-paced beat. Give it a spin up top!
We introduced you to London artist Sakima’s debut single ‘Energy' last week, and today, we've got the accompanying music video. The clip is a simple one, but perfectly mirrors the track's insightful intent. We've had the track on heavy rotation ever since it dropped; and hope to hear more from the Londoner.
Following the Kendrick Lamar featuring ‘Never Gonna Change’, Flying Lotus has shared ‘Coronus, The Terminator' also taken off his forthcoming You’re Dead album. As well as showcasing his immaculate production prowess, Fly Lo also gives light to some gentle vocals; encompassing a psychedelic atmosphere. Take a listen up top!
Get cosy with Sylas’ woozy electronics goodness in debut single ‘Hollow’. The duo, signed to Aesop (SOHN), mingle dark, twisted vocals with a glitch soundscape which sees the boy-boy duo serenade with some divine falsettos hidden behind the undercurrent of sounds. Despite it’s title, the track seems to have you by your throat, you’re left gasping for breath as that wall of beats closes in on you.
So many artists fizzle out after dropping an impressive first project, but Manchester based producer/singer Oceaán isn’t one of them. His latest single ‘Grip’, continues to show his growth as a beatsmith. Amongst some clattery glitches resides some energetic electronics which push through; showing a different side to his artistry.
There’s just something about Ben Howard’s music that seems to touch my heart every time. Following the likes of ‘End of the Affair' and title-track 'I Forget Where We Were' new song 'Conrad' is just as haunting and enthralling with Ben's sublime guitar-work and spellbinding vocals. You find yourself hooked onto each and every word, each and every note, as the track grows and blossoms. I Forget Where We Were is out next month, but for now, stream ‘Conrad’ above.
Here’s ‘Kind Of… Sometimes… Maybe’, the latest track to surface from Jessie Ware’s upcoming Tough Love album. Out next month, the record is shaping up quite nicely and Ware continues to pull out all the stops with this one, co-written by Miguel and BenZel. The slow-grinding laid-back R&B vibe really works with Jessie’s delicate voice. Take a listen up top!
So it looks like Kendrick is dropping a new single titled “i” sometime soon (rumors say next week), and he just posted this pic on his twitter. It’s been a great year for TDE, leave it up to K Dot to take it home.
It’s not often that we post covers, let alone live performances of a cover, but James Bay’s rendition of Haim’s ‘Forever’ is an exception. The singer/songwriter took to BBC Radio 1’s live lounge to give us this increbile take on the track. Bay lets his voice do the talking as he carries through with some great guitar licks. That falsetto towards the end is heavenly… Take a look up top!
So far, we’ve been utterly entranced by Ibeyi’s spectacular sounds in debut singles ‘Oya' and 'River’, but today, the sisters have shared the studio version to the song which kick-started their XL journey. It’s called ‘Mama Says’ and it sees the twins slow things down for a soft piano melody to carry their stunning vocals across the tranquil aesthetics. Take a look at the performance of this track from over a year ago here: it’s lovely!
