Listen to Billie Black’s captivating debut, ‘I Waited For You’

10312754_319380434878778_1301578820511082720_n

There’s a plethora of young female artists channeling an electronic singer-songwriter vibe, but few are able to capture attention in the way Billie Black does. London artist, Black, has just dropped her first single, I Waited For You and it’s stunning. She ever so slightly changes the track up melodically doing enough to pique your interest but at the same time the song barely wavers in sound or tempo. It’s a sophisticated and vulnerable debut with a captivating video to boot. Releasing a song this intimate as a first taste is a brave move, but Black has pulled it off with the utmost grace.

RAC remixes London Grammar’s track, ‘Strong’

LONDONGRAMMAR

RAC has put his Midas Touch onto another song, this time turning London Grammar‘s Strong into gold. This version has a touch of broodiness and is not too dissimilar from the original, with RAC stating ,’with a voice like this, I just tried to stay out of the way.’

Screen Shot 2014-05-27 at 11.24.44 pm

British singer-producer MNEK turned heads with his last single, Every Little Word, and not it seems he’s set to do it all again. Wrote A Song About You will reportedly act as the first single off his forthcoming album. It’s a deep-house flavoured song that is all about MNEK’s smooth, RnB vocals. And he’s only 19. Damn, I need to do something with my life.

Listen here.

Chet Faker – Talk is Cheap (Ta-ku Remix)

chetfakerpic

New Zealand beatsmith Ta-Ku and Aussie crooner Chet Faker have both scaled the heights of the industry at around the same time. Ta-Ku has provided stellar remixes for artists like Flume, BANKS and Childish Gambino while Chet Faker has released a number one album, Built on Glass. It makes complete sense that they find themselves strewn together with Ta-Ku remixing Chet’s single Talk Is Cheap. Needless to say, it’s great.

Mapei follows-up ‘Don’t Wait’ with ‘Change’

If you’ve ever been to Ikea, eaten meatballs or heard Robyn you’d be pretty up with the fact that everything Sweden produces touches to gold. The latest export from the country is Mapei who released one of last year’s best pop tracks, Don’t Wait. The track has gone onto feature Chance The Rapper and be remixed by Giraffage, Benny Blanco and Kingdom. Such was the breadth of its success. Now enter, Change, the latest single from her forthcoming album, Hey Hey. Pumped along by militant drums (a la Destiny’s Child, Lose My Breath) the song blossoms into a euphoric chorus. “Don’t you worry about a thing my sister, we’re all waiting for a change” she sings, clearly playing Michael Jackson in Heal The World. 

Hey Hey is due on 23 September.

Kimbra previews ‘The Golden Echo’ with ‘Nobody But You’ and ‘Love in High Places’

kimbra-the-golden-echo

Following the experimental, ‘90s Music, Kimbra has released two more tracks off The Golden Echo, Love In High Places and Nobody But You. Both are sultry soul numbers that don’t have less of the oddities of ‘90s Music and more of the sound that we heard on Vows. Love in High Places has a distinct Dirty Projectors vibe to it while Nobody But You is throwback RnB, with Kimbra swimming fleetingly through her vocal range. We’ll get to hear The Golden Echo in the middle of August as was revealed in her Twitter Q&A.
