Follow Me – “Somethin’ Bout You” [New Track + TLC and BRANDY Remixes]

follow-me-Somethin-Bout-You

Brooklyn duo FOLLOW ME came to our attention a little while back via their groovy remixes for Brandy’s ‘I Wanna Be Down’ and TLC’s ‘Unpretty.’ The duo has a knack for updating R&B classics into slow burning dance numbers without loosing their sultry vibe.

FOLLOW ME recently signed with Heavy Rock Music and “Somethin’ Bout You” is their first offering. The track samples vocals from 702’s “Steelo” which just happens to be one of my favorite songs by the girl group.

Ellinor Olovsdotter aka Elliphant has been releasing jam after jam after jam (In the Jungle, Tekkno Scene, Live Till I Die, Down on Life and more) ever since our brief  introduction back in early 2012. Well, the Swedish electro-dance singer\rapper has unleashed another banger to add to her already killer collection. Check out the new dancehall anthem, “Music Is Life” featuring Jamaica’s Ras Fraser Jr.

R&B British songstress V V Brown is moving in a new direction musically these days and we absolutely love it. Check out her latest offering, ‘Samson.’ The tune is a dark, art-house pop number in the same musical vein as Bat for Lashes and The Knife. The track was Co-produced by Dave Okumu of The Invisible.

The single is taken from her forthcoming album entitled Samson & Delilah which is due for release in September on her own label, YOY Records.

‘Samson’ arrives July 16 with remixes by Triste, Wall, The Voyeurist, Dedmon Diagrams and more!

Haim – “Falling” [Leonard Friend Remix]

 

Haim_LF_RMX

R&B whiz kid Leonard Friend takes on the catchy single from the the buzzed about Los Angeles sister trio HAIM.  Friend re-imagines the song with sparkling synths, a slowed down drum that gives a nod to Mtume’s “Juicy Fruit” (aka the sample for Biggies “Juicy,”) old Zapp records, Phil Collins and TLC.

In case you missed it, Leonard Friend released his LXLF ep just a few months back, a record packed with quirky synth explosions, slow jams, and dance-floor anthems like “Holograms,” “Middle of the Night” and more. The EP is available as a free download from Friend’s official site.

Betty Who – “You’re In Love” [Official Video]

 

With her shimmering first single, “Somebody Loves You” the Australia-born Betty Who charmingly captured our attention, and now with the aptly titled, “You’re In Love” taken from the brilliant debut EP The Movement, the talented songstress has managed to steal our hearts.

The video for the lush and dreamy new single follows Betty Who and her mighty dapper beau happily driving and walking around the streets of NYC after what I can only guess is some unseen argument or event? This, of course, is what New York does to people. There is no scandal that can’t be solved by the romantic powers of the city streets, parks, lights and skyline when you’re in love. 🙂

Be sure to visit Betty Who’s official site to grab The Movement as a free download.

BANKS – ‘Warm Water’ [New Track]

 

BANKS-WARM-WATER

If you follow this blog frequently than you already know that I’m obsessed with LA-based electronic singer-songwriter, BANKS aka your-next-favorite-artist. Love her music, voice and mysterious seductive vibe.  

Her latest offering, ‘Warm Water’ is a blissful down-tempo track produced by UK electronic pop prodigy Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs(TEED). The collabo is an odd but very welcome surprise. ‘Warm Water’ is a more subtle and spacious affair than the singer’s previous tunes and also a great departure for TEED’s typical arena-size dance productions. The song has a groovy, Marvin Gaye “Sexual Healing” kinda vibe that feels effortless and tender. The kind of song you and your loved-one can enjoy during or after sex…while smoking a cigarette or during a warm sweaty embrace. Take a listen.

If you haven’t yet discover the seductive, nocturnal electro-pop sounds of BANKS, now is the time.

Emika – “She Beats” [Official Video]

emika-dva

 

Here’s Emika’s brand new video for the entrancing, sexually charged and simply incredible, “She Beats” taken from her upcoming sophomore album, DVA. The video is directed by Matt Lambert and features Stephanie Ballantine.

There is comment for this video by someone on Emika’s YouTube channel that perfectly depicts what I feel and I’m sure what other fans like myself feel about Emika’s dark, magnetic, spellbinding sound. The comment reads:

“exploding sensuality… i wonder why this girl doesnt just label herself as a sonic drug”

That sentence defines EVERYTHING! So, from now on, I’ll be referring to Emika as the ‘sonic drug’.

Emika is currently on a short U.S tour (Dates below) I’ll be at the Brooklyn show on May 24 so stop by and say hello!

DVA arrives June 10.

MØ - waste of time

 

This is the second post we have for (aka Karen Marie Ørsted) this week! The Danish singer has just released another catchy and majestic track called, “Waste of Time.”

The track is another slice of electro-pop greatness that feels and sounds like an indie-song but in reality, is a fiery banger at heart.

recently signed to label RCA Victor/Chess Club and is in the process of readying her debut. And If this track is any indications of things to come, I think we’re all going to be very happy when ‘s debut album drops!

F***ing obsessed with this jam!

KATY B – “What Love Is Made Of” [New Single]

 

katy b- what love is

Following the release of the critically acclaimed debut, “On A Mission” in 2011 and the incredible, well received 4-track EP “Danger” (which still available as a free download here) a few months back; London’s Katy B returns to continue her mission….her mission to make us dance!

“What Love Is Made Of” is yet another genius, 90’s house inspired track by the London babe— it’s sexy, soulful, lyrically emotional and irresistibly ready for the dancefloor.

Take a listen!
