CASHMERE CAT – 9

Cashmere Cat’s ‘9’ as a particularly star-studded release, featuring collaborations with the likes of The Weeknd, Kehlani, Ariana Grande & Selena Gomez.  It’s an interesting approach; fusing his other-worldly, experimental production with a selection of mainstream vocalists to produce some incredibly compelling, left-of-centre Pop music.  Stream below via Spotify, click here to download via iTunes.

CASHMERE CAT – WILD LOVE [FT. THE WEEKND]

When we first got familiar with Cashmere Cat, he was making delightfully singular beats but had yet to really break out.  New track ‘Wild Love’ sees him collaborate with international megastar The Weeknd which, given that it follows collaborations with DJ Mustard and Ariana Grande seems to signal that he may have begun to crack the mainstream.  Completely devoid of…

KWAMIE LIV – LOST IN THE GIRL / PERFECT GRACE

Drop a single, drop the album, drop a video to the single – it gets a bit boring doesn’t it?  That’s why we love it when people like Kwamie Liv fuck with tradition and go a little leftfield.  The Danish vocalist released two videos today; the first, ‘Lost In The Girl’,  is taken from her…

MURA MASA – LOVE FOR THAT [FT. SHURA]

Buzzing London producer Mura Masa enlists the help of Shura, a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist on new track ‘Love For That’.  During the verse Shura’s airy vocals are left unadulterated, but when the hook comes around it becomes warped by Masa’s delicate hand.  Stream below via SoundCloud.

BAREN ABEL – TRUE

‘True’ is a new track from vocalist and producer Baren Abel.  We know almost nothing about him, other than the fact that his latest track is a stunning example of contemporary R&B.  Evoking Prince at his brilliant best, with indulgent synths and echoed snares, Abel’s delicate voice trembles in this heart-on-sleeve love song.  We’ll be keeping a close…

AZEKEL – RAW, VOL. 1

UK vocalist and producer Azekel releases his long-awaited EP, ‘Raw, Vol. 1’.  The first glimpse of the project came with single ‘New Romance‘ in June last year, and we’ve been on the edge of our proverbial seat ever since.  Also featuring the previously released ‘Holy Matrimony‘, ‘Chronophobia‘, ‘Mad About The Boy‘, and ‘Sold My Love‘, the…

LION BABE – IMPOSSIBLE

NYC R&B duo Lion Babe release a new track, ‘Impossible’.  It’s a vibrant, upbeat track that evokes “a summer street scene of burst fire hydrants and water fights” according to digital premiere hosts i-D Magazine.  First played on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show, the track is a catchy pop tune, with vocalist Jillian Hervey switching from…
