Lola Blanc – “Bad Tattoo” [New Single]

Lola_Blanc

Its very rare that we dive this deep into pop territory; but LA-Based singer-songwriter Lola Blanc’s addictive new single, ‘Bad Tattoosimply hits all the right notes.

The track, produced by Jon Levine (Selena Gomez, Cher Lloyd, Nelly Furtado) is a sugar-loaded pop song that combines bouncy basslines with lush synth arrangements (á la Goldfrapp) over Blanc’s sassy and infectious vocals. Bad Tattoos earworm production has the same broad appeal as any Gwen Stefani song with enough electropop ear candy and bad-girl swag to make it stand out. We love it.

Also, check out Blanc’s dubstep, synth driven banger, ‘You Like Me,’ a track that’s been burning-up my speakers for the past year or so.

Lola Blanc’s ‘Bad Tattoo is available now.

Sylvester – ‘You Make Me Feel Mighty Real’ [RAC Mix]

Sylvester-you-make-me-feel

Disco-Soul singer Sylvester’s 1978 mighty mighty real classic, ‘You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)’ gets a funky-fresh and groovy update by RAC (aka André Allen Anjos).

There is enough classic-gold funk on this track to short-circuit Daft Punk for a few hours. Take a listen!

Congrats to RAC who recently signed with Cherrytree Records with an scheduled debut EP expected to drop sometime in June.

Dan Black feat. Kelis – “Hearts” [Official Video]

 

The very talented and wonderfully creative Dan Black returns to music with ‘Hearts’ the brand new single taken from his upcoming, presumably titled new album, Do Not Revenge due out later this year. The record follows his 2009 debut ((un)), which spawned the hit singles ‘Symphonies’ and ‘U + Me.’

The catchy and symphonic electro-pop ‘Hearts’ features none other than the incomparable, Kelis! Dan Black recently revealed to ELLE Magazine that the track was originally produced for Kelis’ upcoming album, FOOD.

Well, we were already working on songs for her album. After I wrote one of the songs [Hearts], I thought, this is so where I want to be going with my solo stuff. I just loved it. So, nervously, I asked her if I could use it, presuming she’d say no. But, magically, she said yes! I am a huge fan of hers.

The cool and creative accompanying video for ‘Hearts’ was shot over 24 hours on a rooftop in Paris. Kelis makes a cameo via moving posters and photographs. Co-staring in the video are also Dan Black’s furry friends (Plush Monkey and Rabbit) whom we actually met during Black’s last performance at Le Baron Chinatown in New York City back in 2012 (here).

This is yet another highly anticipated record we can’t wait to hear this year! Check it out!

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.

V V Brown – “Samson” [Official Video]

 

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.
