Icona Pop – “Ready For The Weekend” (Club Mix) NEW TRACK!

The talented Swedish ladies of electro-pop act Icona Pop (Aino Jawo and Caroline Hjelt)  have unleashed an epic electronic Odyssey entitled “Ready For The Weekend.”  The duo have been touring and DJing all of over Europe and the US lately so its no surprise their latest track sounds like a mixture of studio work and their live set.

“Ready For The Weekend” takes Icona Pop to dubstep territory– but the track contains enough vocal touches to remain grounded in their own glorious pop territory.

LOVE THIS TRACK!

The track is available via Beatport today, and will also be included along with their breakout hit “I Love It” on their forthcoming, The Iconic EP. Out October 16.

Icona Pop is touring on selected cities (see below). I’ll be at the Santos Party House-NYC show ready to hear this track live. If you’re there, stop by and say hello!

Hi Fashion – “Special Delivery Love” [Official Video] + Josh Peace & Starvon Washington Remix)

;

Azealia Banks recently gave us the flawless throwback video and track, “1991”. Since then, we’ve been craving some nu music—with a touch of old school house. Enter L.A duo HI FASHION (Rick Gradone and Jen DM), and their glorious, vocally fierce, high energy, house anthem “Special Delivery Love.” Channeling the best of Deee-Lite, “Special Delivery Love” will take you back to the era where dancing was the only thing that mattered.

Check out the fun video (do I see some Grace Jones references here?) and grab the killer Josh Peace & Starvon Washington Remix below.

KITTEN – “G#” [Video Premiere]

 

Check out KITTEN‘s cinematic new video for the gritty, hazy and nostalgic killer tune, G#.

Lead singer Chloe Chaidez recently told Spinner:

‘G#’ is a big song that needed a big video, It feels like a mini-movie. Kind of “Apocalypse Now” meets “The Outsiders,” to us anyway.” “People keep asking us where we found the actors, but they’re all our close friends and are actually real-life couples, It made the whole process of shooting that much more fun. We shot for three days in the extreme desert heat of the Salton Sea, which could have been a bitch, but it ended up being a great time. We all knew that we were making something really cool.”

G# is taken from KITTEN‘s exceptional EP, ‘Cut it Out.’

Midnight Magic – “Same Way I Feel” Listen\Download.

 

Midnight Magic’s blend of funk, soul, and electro-tinged disco has been setting airwaves and dance floors ablaze in NYC where they lay their roots and beyond. Since bursting onto the scene in 2009 with a series of 12” singles, including “I Found Love,” a recent collaboration with Tommie Sunshine, and dance floor smash “Beam Me Up”, the band has become revered for their irresistibly catchy hooks and seductive live shows.

The new single “Same Way I Feel” is a smooth, seductive track driven by bursts of horns over a funky bass line. Awesome track! Grab the MP3 below!

Midnight Magic’s upcoming record Walking The Midnight Streets arrives on November 13th!
