Class Actress – GFE (Obey City Remix)

classactress

A comment on this song’s SoundCloud page is ‘this is sex’. No truer comment on a song uploaded to SoundCloud has ever been typed in the 8 year history of the site. Class Actress (Elizabeth Harper) gets an unreal flip from NYC based Obey City on new remix for “GFE”; a proper collaboration in the future should, hopefully, already be in the works. Vibe below.

M.I.L.K. – Everything You Know

milk

Zone out to the the horn-infused bongo-subtle 70’s-groovy funk undertones, cheery sweetly-reverberant pleasantly-subdued (Carpenters-inspired) vocals and brightly reminiscent summer-breezy feels of new jam “Everything You Know” the latest track from Copenhagen-based M.I.L.K.; a new group (headed by vocalist Emil Wilk) who B3 recently covered for their soulful and dreamy career-debut track “If We Want To”; both songs are off of M.I.L.K.’s upcoming no-details-yet debut EP. Stay tuned. Reviewed by Erin Shay

Wayde – Eleanor

wayde

We like the far-out atmospherics and mid 90’s to early 00’s school-of-rock vibe of new Essex, UK band Wayde who recently debuted their career-first-single “Eleanor”; which we really enjoy for its indie-hazy guitar-riff-heavy instrumentals, slow carefully-muted dramatic-paused pace, luminously-melodic fine-tuned calm-simplicity and sultry-sensitive quiet-shout vocals. Excellent track. Reviewed by Erin Shay.

Hayden James – Something About You (ODESZA Remix)

haydenjamesodesza

We like the straightforward sweet-sentimentality and sunny-dreamy vivid-emotive soul-inspired undercurrent of “Something About You” the hit dance-centric jam from artist/vocalist Hayden James; a track which recently received a beautifully creative jolt from B3-featured artist ODESZA. On their new sparkling synth-led muted-reverb-y atmospheric remix of the track the true-to-style dynamic duo ODESZA captivate us again with their graciously-expansive vocal spin, brightly-textured natural-leaning percussion, and cohesive angelic-tribal-vibe vocal accents. Lovely remix. Reviewed by Erin Shay.

Putting her foot down and preaching, Meg Mac creates a perfect mix of new and old on “Never Be” blending the style of several eras of pop and R&B . Meg is an artist to keep an eye out for.

vōx – Claws

vox

Go wild with B3’s LA-fave vōx on her new sweetly stunning sugar-layered strings-enhanced vocal-stunner “Claws” which emanates a distinct sense of beauty with its tantalizing melody; mute-silent, foggy-edged, synth accents; and decadent, soothing-vibe, Japanese-aesthetic whispers of harp. Gorgeous. Reviewed by Erin Shay.

PREP – Cheapest Flight

PREP

New UK band PREP make their B3SCI and online debut with feel good late 70’s/early 80’s R&B-inspired “Cheapest Flight”. The band are comprised of an unusual lineup of a hip hop producer, opera composer, house DJ & singer songwriter which as distilled down in “Cheapest Flight” does make sense as a melange of Steely Dan meets Al Green on a cool boat with a way solid horns section that just loves to “put it down”. Listen.

OVERWERK – Conquer

Spin a bit of expansive intense-natured dub-inspired whimsy into your day with “Conquer” a bass-driven silky-synth-ed intergalactic mood-setter from Canadian producer OVERWERK, a talented artist (previously featured on B3) who also just released a sparkling-dynamic sci-fi-cinematic original track “Create” which we also appreciate for its finely-laid left-brained fundamentals and brightly emotive soft-sided chemics.
