Listen to Flume’s “Never Be Like You” Featuring Canadian songstress Kai!

24-year-old Australian producer, Flume (aka Harley Streten) shares the first single “Never Be Like You” from his forthcoming album Skin. The track, a blissful mixture off-beat snares and icy-cool synth, features the dreamy and sensual vocals of Canadian songstress, Kai.

Flume shares: “Kai and I were sending ideas back and forth online, then met up in NYC and went into the studio. We laid down some chords and started an idea but weren’t feeling inspired. So we went out into the night for a few hours and when we returned, it all started to come together.”

Listen to “Never Be Like You” now as well as the teaser for Skin below!

Skin is out later this year via Mom + Pop (Transgressive in the UK/Europe).

Clean Bandit & Jess Glynne – “Real Love” [Blaklyte & ALMOND Remix]

Great collabo remix of “Real Love” by DJ\Producer ALMOND and Blaklyte. Sounds like a lot time and work went into this remix too….and it paid off! The track is uplifting with an irresistible funk and spirit that makes it impossible not to dance to!

ALMOND: “I’m really stoked to present my latest remix, this time a collaboration with my friend Blaklyte! We took on Clean Bandit & Jess Glynne’s “Real Love.” This one was probably one of the more exhausting remixes to make – if you’ve ever seen a movie with a writer in a dark room crunching up paper and tossing it in a trash can over and over – that was us on this remix. Lots of changes, lots of tweaks, but after much effort we’ve reached a final product we’re really proud of! It’s sort of a nu-funk fun vibing remix – hope you enjoy!”

PJ HARVEY ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM “THE HOPE SIX DEMOLITION PROJECT”, Unveils New Song “The Wheel”!

Finally! This spring sees the release of PJ Harvey’s ninth studio album entitled, The Hope Six Demolition Project, out on April 15th through Island Records!

The Hope Six Demolition Project draws from several journeys undertaken by Harvey, who spent time in Kosovo, Afghanistan and Washington, D.C. over a four-year period. “When I’m writing a song I visualise the entire scene. I can see the colours, I can tell the time of day, I can sense the mood, I can see the light changing, the shadows moving, everything in that picture.  Gathering information from secondary sources felt too far removed for what I was trying to write about. I wanted to smell the air, feel the soil and meet the people of the countries I was fascinated with”, says Harvey.

The album was recorded last year in residency at London’s Somerset House. The exhibition, entitled ‘Recording in Progress’ saw Harvey, her band, producers Flood and John Parish, and engineers working within a purpose-built recording studio behind one-way glass, observed throughout by public audiences.

Watch the brilliant new album trailer by Seamus Murphy featuring the brand new tracks The Community of Hope and The Wheel!.
