House | KREAM and Mark Asari Bring Us “Another Life”

Posted by on May 30, 2016

The brothers KREAM, a Norway based duo, is back with a brand new offering on Big Beat Records. The single is called “Another Life” and enlists the help of the UK’s Mark Asari. To call this single a “banger” is really doing it a disservice. It’s a massive tune that builds on the success of their “Love You More” single (also on Big Beat) and a catalogue of huge remixes that we’ve had on repeat for months. In an increasingly crowded dance space, KREAM is rising to the top, looking to make a big statement in 2016.

Grab the brand new single below.

House, Pop | Clean Bandit’s Brand New Single Will Have You In “Tears”

Posted by on May 30, 2016

Clean Bandit. What can you say about this super-group that hasn’t already been said. They pump out quality tune after quality tune. That’s no easy task, as dropping hit single after hit single takes serious talent. Recruiting X-Factor alumnus Louisa Johnson, Clean Bandit may have another summer smash on their hands with their brand house crossover “Tears” single that I’ve had on repeat all weekend. Uplifting and melodic, Louisa’s vocals float over the sharp Clean Bandit production, creating a perfect dance ready pop smasher that I see be on every radio in the US.

Pick up “Tears” on iTunes immediately. It’s awesome.

Electronic, Pop | Manila Killa Returns With Anthemic Original Single “Youth”

Posted by on May 27, 2016

LA based producer Manila Killa is back to show off his infectious production skills with the anthemic original track “Youth.” He first launched himself into prominence with the mellifluous and widely received “All That’s Left,” and it seems “Youth” is headed in the same direction. On this one, he teams up with vocalist Satica to deliver an electronic pop gem glimmering with feel-good melodies and bursting with unabashed energy.

Consistent with the title, “Youth” is meant to convey the feeling of being completely alive and uninhibited. The lyrics tell a story characterized by freedom and the self-assured confidence that comes with being young. The feeling is emphasized by smooth piano work, expansive chords and Satica’s silky voice. It’s just in time for summer and can accompany you throughout warm nights blissful dancing, questionable choices and reckless abandon.

Albums, Hip-Hop, Rap | Atlanta Native, Kelechi, Drops Debut Album “Before The Quarter”

Posted by on May 27, 2016

Sometimes you hear an artist and are 7-seconds into the first song, you’re on to the next. Sometimes you hear an artist for the first time and are instantly drawn in. Whether it be the beat, their flow, the lyrics or the message, sometimes you just get that feeling you found something special. A few years back I stumbled across STNDRD, a hip-hop duo out of Hotlanta. Kelechi & Phay, two very talented artists were the talent behind the label. They were clearly motivated (as I quickly confirmed after seeing and hearing “We Want It All“). They were cultured and proud of their diverse backgrounds. They were confident, fun, and full of energy. Most importantly, they could RAP.

Fast forward 2 1/2 years, both artists are still representing STNDRD, but pursuing parallel solo careers. Kelechi was the recipient of $50k after being recognized as the winner of Green Label Sound’s “Open Call” contest. Identified as one of the next talents on the brink of explosion, Kelechief invested that nickel lump right back into his debut album, Before The Quarter. Making valuable industry connections and cosigns along the way, Kelechi has been earning his key and building bridges along the way. “Before the Quarter” is Kelechi’s breakout. 10 tracks, from raw to delicate, Chief flexes appropriately, but never lacks a message. Enjoy the album stream and cop your own copy on iTunes if those first 7-seconds hit you like they hit me.
