KATY B – “Crying for No Reason” [Video Premiere]

 

katy_b_Little_red_cover

 

Katy B’s highly anticipated sophomore album LITTLE RED has finally received a February 3rd release date! Anticipation for the new record has been growing and growing around here (and the blogsphere it seems) ever since she previewed some of the new material via the 4-track EP “Danger” back in December 2012. I’m really happy to report that “Aaliyah,” the ’90s, house throwback collabo with Jessie Ware and a highlight of the Danger EP will be included in the new record. The new album also includes the fantastic house-athem “5 A.M” and the stellar, powerful ballad, “Crying for No Reason” which just had it’s video premiered yesterday.

Watch the deeply emotional video below + listen to a beautiful live rendition of the song for Radio 1 back in October. Amazing.

Lorde – “Royal” [Mirco Niemeier Bootleg]

 

Great new remix of Lorde’s #1 chart-topping, breakthrough song “Royals” by German DJ\Producer Mirco Niemeier.

Niemeier’s bootleg takes you on a bouncy, nu-disco night stroll through the streets of Berlin as you confidently wear your brand new leather jacket and sunglasses; giving absolutely no fucks that you’re listening to queen-bee Lorde on the way to the club. :)

“But every song’s like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin’ in the bathroom, Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin’ the hotel room, We don’t care, we’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams.”

Download, play and get your royal party on.

NEW MUSIC: ROCKY [Debut EP]

 

Rocky-EP

Introducing Parisian Electro-Pop-Rock-Dance group, ROCKY.

The très-cool dance troupe recently released their insane, self-titled debut EP via French music label, GUM (The Shoes, Wookid) co-produced by label mate Guillaume Brière of The Shoes. The 4-track EP offers a fresh and unique take on electropop and dance-rock with a clever blend of old-school house and Jamaican dance beats; all brought together and ignited by the edgy and soulful, Grace Jones-like vocals of lead singer, Ines Kokou.

ROCKY’s first offering “Band Against The Wall” is a funky and groovy song that serves as a good introduction to the band’s infectious funky sound. It also serves as a good warm-up, to the sexy, old-school house number “Just Away,” a brilliant dance track that recalls the sounds of the New York City dance scene of the 90′s—the piano loops on this number are simply insane.

Preview the two tracks below and get the brilliant EP via Amazon or iTunes!
