Youngr – ‘Remember’
Adding to his accolade of recent re-works, rising star Youngr shows no signs of slowing down with the release of ‘Remember’. The track fully gets the Youngr treatment with him adding a unique twist on the Michael McDonald original ‘I Keep Forgetting’, which later got sampled by Warren G and Nate Dogg on one of the defining songs of the 90’s ‘Regulate’.

Hannah Jane Lewis – ‘Aftershock’
The follow up to last year’s ‘Raincheck’ – now on over one million Spotify streams and with the support of Radio 1 – ‘Aftershock’ once again sees the UK pop princess team up with production team The Union for big singalong choruses and bubblegum, sassy lyrical content. We can’t wait to see what comes next from the super-talented Hannah.
Father John Misty – ‘Mr Tillman’
The first new music to be released since his critically-acclaimed 2017 album ‘Pure Comedy,’ ‘Mr Tillman’ once again finds Father John Misty in wonderously melodic mode, extolling the virtues of hotel stays in his classically sardonic wit. Bodes will for album number four.
Deva Mahal – ‘Can’t Call It Love’
The opening track from her upcoming debut album ‘Run Deep,’ ‘Can’t Call It Love’ sees the New Zealand dwelling soul songstress turn in another spellbinding lyrical showing, although this time with the music leaning on more of an RnB, indie feel.
Win and Woo – ‘Chasing Tail’.
Chicago production duo Win and Woo have ventured in other direction with their production again, this time supplementing their future bass influences with a soothing pop chill out vibe. The production quality of this track seems to be some of their best work yet, and will lead into their quick six gig tour starting march 1st in Chicago.
6LACK -‘Cutting Ties’
The unique blend of hip-hop/r&b that 6LACK incorporates into his music allowed him to become one of surging new faces in the industry in 2017. Now back with an anti-love ballad released on Valentines Day that emanates a dark yet relatable feel. ‘If you have a valentine good for you, if you don’t this is for you’ are the words the 25 year old Interscope crooner used to promote the tracks release.

Frank Ocean-‘Moon River’
Dropping just hour after Valentine’s Day, Frank Ocean proves yet again to be the genre-shifting romantic on the music landscape whose next move can never be predicted. Ocean manages to hold on to Audrey Hepburn’s free enchantment but twists in his own lucid genius that encompasses allows the track to have a mind of it’s own.
