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…

KANYE WEST – THE LIFE OF PABLO

THE WEEKND – THE HILLS

Following the Jackson-esque pop of ‘I Can’t Feel My Face’, The Weeknd releases the brand new ‘The Hills’, complete with accompanying visuals.  The self-directed video sees Tesfaye emerge from the wreckage of a car crash, which eventually bursts into flames.  All in all, it’s pretty satisfying stuff!  Stream below via YouTube.

THE NINETYS – VERSO

Only a week after releasing ‘The Art of Illusion‘, British producer The Ninetys drops a new track entitled ‘Verso’ via SoundCloud.  Beginning with a rich bassline and a strangely unnerving take on the melody from The Weeknd’s ‘Gone’, the track begins to glitch and stutter brilliantly both in terms of the percussion and vocal sample.  The…
