That intro on Xavier Dunn’s new record “Straight On Till Morning” just makes me want to yell “wooo!!,” it’s feel good, and hypnotic. We’ve come to know Xavier Dunn with his “take your breath away” covers, and his transition into original territory, all while maintaining those feels, has been done so impeccably. The production on this bad boy is straight sex, and the vocals will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Go on Xavier, this is a must listen!

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.

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.

‘Numbered’ is the first taste of Calypso’s debut four-track EP, and if this is anything to go by, we are certainly in for a treat. The Tasmanian artist’s beautiful voice perfectly compliments the piano/guitar based melody to create a track that is melodic, uplifting, yet also upbeat. From the artist herself: “The story behind ‘Numbered’ is quite obvious through the lyrics in the song; it’s about the struggle between two people as their love for each other is coming to an end – the painful experience of wanting to keep somebody close, but knowing that you will eventually have to let go.” This story is beautifully told throughout the track, with the closing sax line being the cherry on top. Check out “Numbered” now and be sure to follow Calypso as we’re sure she has some magic coming our way soon.
