MNEK releases ‘Wrote A Song About You’

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.

Nobody But You:

Love In High Places:

Stream Shamir’s Debut EP

a1a4a22f

Las-Vegas artist Shamir impressed with his first two singles, If It Wasn’t True and I Know It’s A Good Thing and now he’s set to groove you right down to the ground with his debut EP. The Northtown EP features five cuts that incorporate everything from deep-house to disco and motown soul. His voice has an androgynous quality that is both intriguing and captivating. His acoustic cover of Lindi Ortega’s Lived and Died Alone is the best proof of this. Heighty vocals and a stellar falsetto carry the EP home with class.

New London artist, BARLI reveals her debut track ‘Pebbles’

There’s so little you can do on a rainy Winters day that doesn’t include weeping/eating Oreos. Luckily, there’s another activity to add to that list- listen to the new track by London-artist BARLI. At this point BARLI is rather anonymous. A search for her debut song Pebbles reveals little else than Bali inspired-pebbles. And unless you’re thinking of paving your pool, that is of little need to anybody. The Tom Epoch-produced track, Pebbles, on the other hand is of a lot of use. It’s dark and minimal, moved along simply by an affecting 808. Her voice doesn’t strain throughout rather preferring to remain in a spectrum covered by the likes of Jessie Ware and BANKS. An EP is reportedly on the way.
