Often times we find musicians creating music to fit a certain trend, or to make something that is “popular”. Many times, an artist doesn’t realize this and loses themselves along the way. However, other times this realization pushes an artist to set trends instead of chasing them – and this is exactly what Jenaux has done. With the release of “Get It On”, his first original in over a year, Jenaux tells us to “try and push yourself creatively till you can’t go any further. Battle your mind with positivity. Seize your inner artistry.” This track is absolute fire, creating a perfect balance between funk, electro, and even a bit of soul. Check it out now, and be sure to support Jenaux!

Sydney house-lords Random Soul have given us their take on the classic Lauryn Hill track ‘Doo-Wop (That Thing)’, and have certainly done the song justice. From the artist themselves: “We’ve always loved a bit of Lauren Hill, so we made this remix for our live sets and it’s always a good party starter.” This deep house banger perfectly combines breathtaking vocals with a groovy and catchy bass line, making it a great addition for any set. Check out the track now and grab that free download!

“How Could We Have Known” is the first single (and title track) off Bells and Robes upcoming How Could We Have Known EP. The mellow record is a sample heavy original that effortlessly glides along until it’s finished with.
