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.

If you’ve thought you have had a rough night out in the past, allow Ameria’s new music video to put that into perspective for you. Watch as a guy gets thrown out of a bar for being too drunk, and the Hungarian songstress steals a cop car, gets in a car chase, has a drug deal go wrong, and a minor shootout with the police. And if that isn’t really enough of a selling point for you, maybe her stealing a dog and tossing it in the back seat of the cop car will win you over. Maybe not? Either way, though, her lush vocals alone are enough to win anyone over. Just to be safe, let’s just say that you should not try any of this at home.

Nothing like some feel good House music to kick off your week in the best way possible. Biggie Smiles is a new school Los Angeles group who have already turned some heads with their prior releases. Their last release to date is “We Wanted Love” featuring Mylen that came out last week and it will have you nodding your head along to it. Aside from the silky instrumental made by BS, the vocals sung by Mylen remind me of a laid back, R&B heavy Drake song. Give “We Wanted Love” a spin, it’s an impressive introduction to their music.
