Rounding up the best new sounds from the last 7 days.
WITHOUT- ‘Love Liike This’
This UK pop-production duo just released their new single, ‘Love Liike This’, featuring vocalist Essie. The song combines a 90’s pop feel with funk, and R&B to create a unique crossover groove. WITHOUT formed their own record label called The Peace, in which they released their first project, ‘Wanta Be’ earlier this year. If you’re a fan of Disclosure or 90’s R&B girl groups, ‘Love Liike This’ is begging to be heard.
After years of creating electro-pop music under the name Little Deed, this singer-songwriter just started a new musical project as IDA. Her new single ‘1111’ features a strong synth production with rich lyrics that can’t help but grab your attention. Her debut EP, ‘i’ holds five new tracks and is expected to drop before the end of this year. We can’t wait!
Butterjack – ‘Good Girls’
Following his debut track ‘Other Worlds’, Butterjack pulls us back into his cosmos with new single ‘Good Girls’, which is instantly hooky! The enigmatic producer/songwriter, who hails from the north of England, has an obvious gift for crafting insanely captivating tracks and ‘Good Girls’ is the perfect follow-up to an already impressive debut. Butterjack is well on his way to proving his position as one of the leading emerging UK talents going into 2018.
Seeb x Skip Marley – ‘Cruel World’
Norwegian trio Seeb unleashed their magnetic new single last week, which is a collaboration with the incredible Skip Marley. As DJs and Producers, Seeb have been changing the shape of dance music since their now iconic remix of ‘I Took A Pill in Ibiza’ stormed the charts a few years ago, and have reworked tracks for everyone from Ed Sheeran to Tove Lo. Seeb have secured their position as one of the most exciting new production acts around are rapidly approaching 1.5 billion streams on Spotify since their debut less than 2 years ago. Their new single with Skip is the very first track from the forthcoming EP, which is set to drop in next year.
Steve Aoki feat. Lauren Jauregui- ‘All Night’
‘All Night’ is the highly anticipated new single from Steve Aoki and Fifth Harmony’s Lauren Jauregui. The song was written by Jauregui and is her first single as a main songwriter. The track’s production is much softer than Aoki’s normally brash EDM beats, and has a chilled vibe with Lauren’s beautiful vocals. 10/10 collab right here!
Matoma feat. Noah Cyrus – ‘Slow’
Matoma is on the rise this year as an electronic producer/DJ and his new single doesn’t disappoint. He’s teamed up with Noah Cyrus and created ‘Slow,’ the first single off his sophomore album, ‘One In A Million.’ We can’t wait to hear the final album.
Jaden Smith – ‘Icon’
Following the release of his highly anticipated album ’SYRE’, Jaden also dropped a slick new video for ‘Icon’, taken from the 17-track strong project. ’SYRE’ apparently took a whole three years in the making.
Xavier Omär – ‘Change On Me’ Ft Leuca
Ahead of his ‘Pink Lightning’ Tour, soulful crooner Xavier released his latest EP also titled ‘Pink Lightning’. Omär has this absolute knack in making pure blissful R&B, music that seems to be so rare these days and it’s just so refreshing. If you haven’t listened to his debut album ‘The Everlasting Wave’ yet – it’s a must.
Odette – ‘Collide’
20-year-old Sydney-based singer songwriter Odette returns with new single COLLIDE, the follow up to her spectacular debut single ‘Watch Me Read You’ that stopped us in our tracks. Co-written with Charlie Hugall (Florence and the Machine / Halsey / Låpsley), ‘Collide’ sees Odette’s masterful use of language and dramatic vocal delivery on top form yet again, this time with a mesmerizing beat in tow.
Devi – ‘Librium’
19-year-old emerging UK producer DEVI has unleashed this week’s floor-filler anthem ‘Librium,’ featuring guest vocals from rising female singer/songwriter Y.A.S. The track is being released own label Illusiv in conjunction with Access Records, the in-house label of First Access Entertainment, home to Zayn Malik, Rita Ora, Ellie Goulding and more – so this is clearly one to keep an eye on!
