Friday 11 January 2019

PashaRight This Time

Underground MC Pasha continues to shape the rapidly growing rap scene in Norway. With infectious funk beats and a groovy flow, Pasha and Soul Gem make magic again on his latest single “Right This Time” that goes with any vibe. Pasha also enlisted Jerry Folk to produce the track.

Betta Lemme Give It

Betta Lemme continues to stun with hypnotic vocals and powerfully cinematic beats on her first single since she went viral with international hit “Bambola.” NYLON Magazine went on to call the single “Britney Spears meets Nine Inch Nails” and we couldn’t have said it better ourselves. One thing is for sure, “Give it” is only the beginning of what Betta has in store for us in 2019.

3. Sandro CavazzaUsed To 

From the co-writer of Avicii’s ‘Stories’ album and vocalist on his “Without You” smash hit, we have a new single from singer/songwriter Sandro Cavazza that feels like pure love. With a soulful yet melancholic tone, Sandro Cavazza’s “Used To” shows this ability to create memorable, powerful and emotional pop. Apparently, it took one year to collect all the footage for the video and the fictional couple traveled across Europe to capture genuine moments to make the video as heartwrenching as possible.

BETTY WHO I Remember

An absolute feel good song to kick off your 2019! Pop favourite Betty releases the uptempo ‘I Remember’ ahead of her third album ‘Betty’ which drops next month.Talking about what the song means to her, Betty’s mantra is one we are totally on board with; “I Remember’ is exactly the way I wanted to start my new year. It’s such a representation of the album and my obsession with making music that makes people feel good,”.Turn it up loud!

James Hersey x Jeremy Loops –  My People

James Hersey teams up with Jeremy Loops on new release ‘My People’. The gloriously upbeat indie-pop track highlights both artists’ impeccable vocals as they effortlessly flow back and forth. On the single, James says “My People” is an homage not to the places we come from, but to the people there that keep us coming back.”.Great to know that James is back in the UK supporting Jeremy on tour which includes a sold-out gig at Roundhouse, London in Feb.

Lana Del Reyhope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me – but i have it

Can Lana do any wrong when it comes to releasing new music? NO! Her third single from her forthcoming album ‘Norman F***king Rockwell’ is full of glamorous lyrics and melancholy piano strums. This is classic Lana with a song that will make you feel all “the feels’ while you imagine driving down an open road, in a red convertible and wearing over-sized sunglasses…or is that just us?

Sam Smith (with Normani) Dancing With A Stranger

Sam Smith and Normani have come together for a beautiful blend of pop and R&B that we’ll all be playing through out 2019. The track perfectly describes the back and forth feeling of not being over an EX while finding comfort in a stranger to fill the void. So deep. So Sam Smith. and SO amazing! This bop is a must listen!

Bring Me The Horizon, flirting with mental health issues with the track medicine and jumps on the trend of uncomfortable animated videos. We love it.
