Moscow-via-London singer\songwriter Shura dazzles once again with her follow-up to the amazing first single, ‘Touch.’ The new ballad, ‘Just Once’ is as dreamy, tender and magical as her first effort. “If you get my name wrong I won’t get pissed off, ‘cuz I wish I was somebody else” Shura softly sings above the 80s-inspired production.

Azealia Banks – “Heavy Metal and Reflective“ [Official Video]

 Azealia Banks‘ brand new jam, “Heavy Metal and Reflective“ receives the proper visuals with a clip directed by Rob Soucy x Nick Ace.“It’s supposed to be a little Tarantino kinda vibe, and it’s symbolic of me getting off the label,”  Banks tells Buzzfeed. She also adds: “So I’m really happy to get this project off. Cause I’ve already started working on a bunch of new stuff. I’m still connected to the [Broke With Expensive Taste] music, but I’m still somewhere else, with these other projects, because I know how quickly I like to move and my fan base likes to move. So I’m halfway, like one foot in Broke With Expensive Taste and one foot in the next project, and having all these other ideas. But I’m just happy that I can do whatever I want now.”

Expect Broke With Expensive Taste to arrive later this year via Banks’ own label, Azealia Banks Records. “Heavy Metal and Reflective“ is out now.

FEMME Covers The Shangri-Las, Anita Ward, Seal and Madonna!

One of our favorite discoveries this year, London’s electropop pixie FEMME has been sharing a series of covers for the past weeks that the singer calls: “songs that have no doubt influenced and inspired the sound and the music I make today.”  Those songs have now been made available as a free download today!

The collection includes songs by American royalty, The Shangri-Las (whom we definitely see as an inspiration for FEMME’s “Fever Boy.” ) as well as Anita Ward, Madonna and Seal. Each cover representing an impacting decade of music spanning from the 60s to the 90s. We absolutely love what she’s done here. Each song has been revitalized with an energetic synthpop sound that breathes new life into the memorable classics. These covers also offer a bit of a glimpse on what FEMME’s music might sound like on her upcoming debut. Exciting!

As a bonus, below is a fantastic cover of Aretha Franklin’s “Respect” not included in this EP collection.

FEMME is joining Elliphant and Charli XCX on a North American tour starting in September for what is sure to be one of the most kick-ass, #girlpower shows ever! Be sure not to miss that!

Enjoy!

Starsmith – “Now I Feel Good” Feat Clare Maguire [Club Edit]

Listen to London DJ\Producer Starsmith’s glorious new single “Now I Feel Good” featuring the vocals of the equally amazing Clare Maguire whom we haven’t heard much from in a very long time.

The euphoric track is such the feel good anthem— It makes us feel like summer is starting all over again; it’s such a refreshing blast of sunshine, disco and summertime sadness happiness!

Nu Music: Milk and Bone – “New York” [Debut Single]

Listen to ‘New York’ the stunning debut track by Montreal’s Milk and Bone comprised of Camille Poliquin and Laurence Lafond-Baulne. The very first words that came to mind upon first listen were; “like a feather drifting on air in a cold winter’s day”—  when music makes you visualize something as poetic as a weightless feather floating on air then you know it’s something special. From the start, the downtempo, minimalist ‘New York’ slowly captivates at every drum-kick and snare, only letting go at the bridge, when it breaks into a mixture of static, electronic sounds. And although the production here is simply flawless; it’s the duo’s broody, whispering vocals that will take you to heavenly places.

AZ&TOR – “Featherlight” [New Single]

London-based AZ&TOR comprised of vocalist Aisha Zoe and Detroit-born producer Rich Main return with the sublime, aptly-titled, ‘Featherlight.’ The seductive track is as light and smooth as it sounds— imagine if 90′s Acid-jazz band The Brand New Heavies and AlunaGeorge got together for a jamming session…the resulting track would be this gloriously groovy, sexy number.
