Premiere: Ryan Egan – Won’t You Be the One

The great Ryan Egan is back with a new record in the form of “Won’t You Be the One”. We’re digging the track’s midtempo 70’s-esque aesthetic and the brand new video for the song (which we’re very pleased to premiere at B3SCI!). Egan collaborated with co-director Amanda Taylor Evans for the “Won’t You Be the One” vid and describes his aim in matching the track’s feel, “We wanted to create a visual that complimented the slow-melting, sleepy groove of the track and I thought it’d be rad to base it all around a slowly rotating Spike Lee style dolly shot.”

Stream the B3SCI Premiere of Ryan Egan’s video for the excellent track Won’t You Be the One below.

Premiere: Sky Keller – Bad

We’re digging the dark pop of L.A. artist Sky Keller’s new track “Bad”. On the track, Keller’s cool alto skips percussively atop a kinetic 808, each vocal hook sounding bigger than the last. About “Bad’s” lyric Keller says, ““there was an absence of resolution, and that was the hardest part.” We’re pleased to B3SCI Premiere “Bad” by Sky Keller below.

Mark Whalen – Happen Twice

“Happen Twice” comes to us from Michigan man Mark Whalen. Propelled by a school of Norman Whitfield midtempo bassline and an array of minor-keyed guitar leads, “Happen Twice” is as cool as a “Cloud Nine” deep cut.

Liam Bailey – Brother, Why You Gotta Love Her (Feat. Maverick Sabre)

Its most excellent to hear Liam Bailey’s powerhouse vocal again. Bailey is back with a great new tune in the form of “Brother, Why You Gotta Love Her?”. The track features the recently re-emerged Maverick Sabre (we loved his “Drifting” track from last month), and puts Bailey’s A-level vocal at the fore over a spare rhythm-driven instrumental. Stream Liam Bailey’s new one below.

Kate Bollinger – Do U Go Out Together?

Virginia singer Kate Bollinger sets her cool melodic alto to a hazy keys-driven instrumental that as a track sounds that it’d be equally at home in A$AP Rocky’s air pods as he’s ambling by the Seine as it does on this very dusty not so A$AP SF bus I’m on right now. Great track.
