Stream below deep house number “Worship”, previewed from Cleveland (s/o our hometown) artist Hanna’s “Bounce” EP for new label Waella’s Choice.
After a three year hiatus, Lorde is officially back with a newer, more refined sound. Adding to that new sound is Chromeo who remixed Green Light, adding super-sized synths and a funky vibe to the pop track. The vet duo transformed the pop anthem into something more downtempo and smooth, and I’m vibing with it.
Alexander Lewis is known best for his high energy productions and impressive brass instrumentation. This tune (a booming remix of Kaaris’ “Charge”) is no different. As Lewis’ trombone graces the song, the melody of “Charge” floods in and hits the listener hard. We’re big advocates of this artist so be sure to keep an eye on him this year!
Hot off the Chaos in the CBD press is another excellent mix from the UK via NZ production duo; a remix of “Gray Paper Moon” from another New Zealand artist now based in London Jon Sable.
Producer Wilma Archer releases new collaboration “Like a Hunger” with singer Amber Mark. Words/phrases like “soulful”, “dark pop”, “innovative”, “menacing” get tossed around a lot in the blog world but, yeah, “Like a Hunger” is all of those oft-used descriptors and a lot lot more. WA’s skill of setting so much cool but disparate sounds and palettes of influence into such a interesting and cohesive (and very catchy/infectious) song is special. Don’t miss.
