Hey guys! Instead of providing a single dance-freebie for the¬†weekend, I decided to create a dance playlist on Spotify with a mixture of “old” remixes and new jams released this week. There’s been so much violence in the news lately that I felt the need to provide a therapeutic dance session for you, me, and whomever is in need of a little break from the world—- at least for the next 47mins.

Live! Love! Dance! Repeat!

Enjoy! ūüôā


Fergie Unveils ‘Hungry (1st Byte)’ Video Teaser!

Fergie has been keeping us “hungry” for new music for several years now ever since she disappeared from the spotlight approximately 10-years ago(!). In 2006 she dropped her very successful debut,¬†The Dutchess, which¬†produced 5 top five singles in the U.S. (remember “Fergalicious“, “Big Girls Don’t Cry“, and “Glamorous“?!); and¬†although she made a¬†brief appearance in 2014 with the single “L.A.LOVE (la la) ft. YG “ (a track we’ve chosen to forget) we have been missing her brand of¬†feisty-pop ever since!

Well, today, the dutchess herself released a sleek, black-and-white video teaser for a very promising ¬†new track call¬†‚ÄúHungry (1st Byte)‚ÄĚ. The teaser is about a minute-long with¬†Fergie boasting a few verses over¬†dark, booming beat:¬†‚ÄúTo say it‚Äôs complicated, understatement of the year/ Well maybe conflict made it the new flavor in your ear/ They know that I‚Äôm a problem, that‚Äôs why everybody scared/ Whatever doesn‚Äôt kill you, can make you an ill-ionaire”¬†

Check it out!

Are you excited for Fergie’s return?!¬†

ABRA Announces Princess EP, Debuts ‚ÄúCRYBABY‚ÄĚ!


Extremely excited to have brand new music from one of our favorite artist discoveries last year; the incredibly talented, ABRA!.

Awful Records vocalist and producer ABRA aka ‚Äúdarkwave duchess‚ÄĚ came into our radar early last year by way of ‘Roses’; a seductive and daring electronic jam from her debut album,¬†Rose. The record contained so much stardom potential in both its technical¬†production¬†and lyrical prowess, that we placed the record on the second-spot in our list of “Best Albums of 2015“.

Well, a few days ago ABRA unleashed ‚ÄúCRYBABY,‚Ä̬†a catchy, 80s-inspired jam (think Jody Watley and early Janet Jackson) from her upcoming new EP,¬†Princess (artwork above)¬†arriving on July 15th via Awful Records and True Panther Sounds. The EP will also feature ‘COME 4 ME’;¬†the bombastic¬†and¬†cool (but¬†criminally short-in-length) track she debuted last month.

Check it out and bow down to the darkwave…Princess!

M√ė – “Final Song” [Official Video]

Danish pop singer M√ė’s¬†brilliant new earworm of a tune, “Final Song” – whom she recorded with MNEK and Noonie Bao – now has an equally dazzling and gorgeous new¬†video!

In the clip, directed by Tomas Whitmore,¬†we see M√ė carelessly singing and swaying in a ritual dance in the middle of desolate desert, util the uplifting rhythm of the chorus literally lifts her off the ground. Amazing!

The single is taken from the M√ė’s yet-untitled sophomore¬†album arriving in the fall.

“Final Song” is out now.

Alpines Returns With “Completely” [Official Video]

It’s been a hot minute since we last heard of London-based duo Alpines.¬†Back in 2014 they released their majestic debut, Oasis¬†—a dance record we absolutely adored!¬†— which deservedly, received a spot on our list of best albums of 2014.¬†Well, the duo — comprised of vocalist Catherine Pockson and producer Bob Matthews — are back with another superbly beautiful electro-ballad called “Completely”.

Compare to the more dance-leaning efforts of Oasis;¬†“Completely”¬†is more on the minimalist side….but the starkly subtle production entwining with Pockson‚Äôs gorgeous lingering vocals will instantly grab a hold of all of your emotions. We are COMPLETELY hooked!

Check it out!

“Completely” is out now.

Grimes Unveils The Official Video For “California”

Yet another amazing visual treat from GRIMES’ excellent Art Angels! Watch the official video for ‘California’ below!

Not for California, for like the music industry.‚Ä̬†Explaining the it was written in response to the less than warm reception she received by the press when the song ‘GO’ was released.

Both tracks tracks are too¬†damn good to miss.
