South African artist Connell Cruise is set for his US debut with his release of “Into The Wild” via Island Records, and I kind of have this record on repeat, reminding me of a cross between Bastille, and Mumford and Sons, except he’s just one man! I’m not saying this track is going to be a hit, but I’m usually on top of what’s going to be big, and I’m willing to bet big bucks, Connel Cruise will be on your radio sooner than later! I’m already imagining it, spring time with the windows down, shades on, and this playing on the radio, I’m sold, this is a must listen!

Pop | The Streakers Would Like You to “Shut Up!”

Posted by on February 19, 2015


NYC based artists, Larcy and Taylor Wise, teamed up earlier this week to form Streakers, a promising indi-pop duo. Empowered by their love for melodically-based songwriting and production, Streakers release their first offering in the form of “Shut Up!”. Ethereal and sanguine, “Shut Up” takes the listener on a melodic ride that tempts you to take your top off. I expect this to do well on Hypem.

Pop | Galantis Sprinkle “Gold Dust” On The Masses

Posted by on February 19, 2015


Premiered earlier today, Swedish hit makers Galantis release their highly anticipated “Gold Dust” single to immense fanfare. Infectious and enduring, “Gold Dust” is an anthem that reaches deep into the soul. While the vocalist is unknown, the vocal performance perhaps steals the show, as it arouses an emotional exuberance rarely found in radio-friendly bangers. Galantis’s “Gold Dust” is set to release on Big Beat February 23rd. Incredible record.

Fresh off his release of Drinkin ‘Bout You, TJ is back with his best work to date. With an extremely good feature from FNT regular Alex Jordahl,  Treadmill tells the story of TJ’s experience in the music industry thus far and while anyone can relate this track to some aspect of their life, anyone that has been in the industry can really relate to this one.

Originally jumping onto the radar of most with his creative remix to Foster The People’sPumped Up Kicks‘ in 2011, Yonas has consistently been creatively flipping songs from every genre and making them pop/hip hop bangers. After taking a brief hiatus to embark on his first headlining national tour and to hit the studio, Yonas is back with the first installment in a series of remixes coming to you every two weeks. His creative re-work of the pop super hit is yet another track you need to add to your weekend playlist!

Pop, RnB | Maroon 5/Kanye West (Medley) – Dylan Reese

With the style and creativity of Jon Bellion and a voice somewhere between SoMo and The Weeknd, Dylan Reese is someone you need to get familiar with. This up and coming R&B artist brings a certain attitude, style and work ethic to the often times forgotten genre.

 

Recently, Dylan has taken a pause on his original music and has been crafting unique medleys of well known songs. Today, Dylan let go the second installment in which he takes pop superstars Maroon 5’s ‘She Will be Loved’ and ‘Sunday Morning’ as well as ‘Say You Will’ by Kanye West’s favorite person, Kanye West. Dylan’s ability to fuse the three songs into one medley and really make it his own is spot on; be sure to check out the initial medley ‘Often/3005‘.

Hip-Hop, Pop | TJ Hickey – Drinkin’ Bout You

As a fan of music, it takes quite a bit of convincing to give a previously dismissed artist a second listen down the road. Once upon a time TJ Hickey was caught up in frat rap, sounding like a plethora of others all trying to accomplish the same thing, but that is the case no more. The Fresh New Tracks newcomer delivers a new single ‘Drinkin Bout You’ accompanied by some stimulating visuals from M9. The single is the first off of his forthcoming project ‘Undeniable‘ which is set to drop later this Spring.

 

As of late TJ has really transformed his sound, using elements of not only pop and hip hop, but really adding some rock inspired production working with one of the best in the game currently, Louis Bell. As of late, TJ has teamed up with the likes of Cam Meekins and Huey Mack on his single ‘Stay The Night‘ and more recently linked with rapper Futrustic for ‘Hollywood‘.
