Emika – “Searching” [New Single + New Album]

 

emika-dva

Mesmerizing, electronic-dark-chanteuse, EMIKA returns with a brand new album entitled, DVA and new single, Searching.”

The new track is a slow burning gem that swirls in darkness. Bittersweet lyrics of faith and deception are beautifully delivered by Emika’s sultry vocals; while bouncy basslines and synthesized drums add a touch of R&B groove to the smoky track.

Emika shares:

‘[Searching] is a song about deception, feeling the intentional deceit of someone close to you, and sucking the lies out from their eyes.

A few days ago Emika previewed her next single, “Sing to Me” via her Facebook page. The track is one of her most pop-friendly tunes yet—Although “Sing to Me” is a danceable song, it still offers the same poetic and dark lyricism we’ve come to know and love from the singer. “Sing to me in the dark, sing to me as the pain falls away” Emika softly croons above the melodic keyboard riff and hypnotizing club beats.

I’ve have been following Emika from the very beginning. Her debut album made it to our list of Best Albums of 2011; so needless to say I’m a huge fan. I’m extremely excited she’s finally visiting New York City on May 24 for a live performance! I’ll finally get to see her live (tickets here.) Be sure to visit her official site for more North American tour dates and to download her cover of  Chris Isaak‘s “Wicked Game.”

Emika’s “Searching – EP” is available now via Ninja Tune. DVA arrives June 10.

Ali Love feat. Kali – “Emperor” [Official Video]

 

British singer/songwriter/producer, Ali Love returns with “Emperor,” his first solo release since 2010′s eclectic dance record, Love Harder.

The groovy, deep-house cut features the sweet, lush vocals of singer, Kali and it’s accompanied by an eerie dreamlike video that can best be described as Kill Bill meets Michel Gondry (Bjork, Beck, Radiohead videos). Take a look.

If the name Ali Love doesn’t immediately pop— maybe the tracks below will refresh your memory. He was featured on The Chemical Brothers’ “Do It Again” and Justice’s “Civilization.” He’s also a member of the incredible up-and-coming dance-house outfit, Hot Natured; whom we’ve featured several times on the blog.

 ”Emperor” is available now via Crosstown Rebels and Beatport.

New Music: Betty Who, ‘The Movement’ EP Premiere.

 

betty Who-EP Cover

Introducing Australian singer-songwriter, Betty Who.

We are extremely excited to introduce the talented newcomer on the blog! We stumbled upon her music a little while back and instantly became fans of her inescapable, sugar-coated, 80s flavored tunes.

Her debut single, “Somebody Loves You” produced by Peter Thomas (Hoodie Allen, Neon Hitch) is an infectious dance number with an irresistible hook that recalls the glorious pop-sounds of the early 80s when then newcomers, now icons, like Whitney Houston and Janet Jackson ruled the airwaves. The song’s official video is an equally nostalgic treat that charmingly captures the era. Think Flashdance and Cyndi Lauper’s “Girl Just Wanna Have Fun.”

Debuting her self-released EP, The Movement, on none-other than Billboard.com; Betty Who shared that “Somebody Loves You” was written right after the passing of the great Whitney Houston. She wanted to honor the pop icon but also drew inspiration from a recent breakup.

She tells Billboard: “When we were writing it, I had had enough distance from that relationship to have a moment where I could say, ‘Okay, not everything was bad”

In addition to “Somebody Loves You” Who’s, The Movement contains 3 additional tracks that shine as brightly as the first. The catchy songs, “You’re In Love” and “High Society” are two instant favorites. The electro-pop flavored tunes share the same charismatic pop-vibe as her debut. The perky vocals on “You’re In Love” and the dreamy, lush delivery of the ballad, “Right Here” will easily lure and capture the attention of any devoted Katy Perry and Ellie Goulding fans. The songs, much like the singer’s smile, are simply impossible to resist.

We are proud to feature and stream Betty Who’s The Movement – EP which arrives today as a FREE download!

Listen below and lets welcome Betty Who into our lives…and to our summer playlists!

Be sure to visit Who’s Official Site to follow the Movement, join the WHO Crew, and for all things Betty Who.

Róisín Murphy – “Primitive” [ItaloBros Remix]

 

Electro-pop-dance Diva, Roisin Murphy’s 2007 album, ‘Overpowered’ has to be one of the best pop-dance records ever recorded. Yet, for some reason, the album failed to reach a commercial success. WHY? I’ll never know.

The chill, laid-back groovy track, “Primitive,” is one of the tracks from the album that has always screamed for a remix. Though there have been a few takes on the track, it is Italian production duo, italoBros that receives our highest praise.

The eclectic duo has masterfully infused the original track with a deep-house vibe that doesn’t strain too far from the groovy feel of the original. The 90′s dance-house beats in combination with Murphy’s smoky, sensual vocals take the disco-laden, “Primitive” from the cozy-surroundings of your bedroom into the spinning, neon-filled lights of a club’s dancefloor.

Janelle Monáe – “Tightrope” [Oliver Nelson Remix]

 

Janelle Monáe’s funkadelic (with extra pulp) R&B tune, “Tightrope” from the highly praised, The ArchAndroid gets a groovy and equally funky electronic remix by Sweden’s Oliver Nelson.

When we play this remix we feel just like Janelle Monáe says on the track: “We gettin funky on the scene, Yeah you know about it, Like a star on the screen-ahhh—-Now put some voodoo on it”

Loving this remix. Take a listen!

NEW MUSIC: G3NESIS – “Yes Daddy” [Video] + SWITCH [New Track]

 

Introducing Vancouver’s female rap/hip-hop duo G3NESIS comprised of Genesis Mohanraj and Kelin Kaardal.

The duo’s debut single, “Yes Daddy” is a playful and gritty, lo-fi- tune that plays like a fresh, Grimes meets Kitty Pryde collaboration behind amazing tongue-twisting rhymes by Genesis Mohanraj. The track’s keyboard twinkles and risqué, thought-provoking, lolita-esque rhymes have a hypnotic effect that instantly demand multiple listens. Literally, I can’t stop re-playing this tune.

Yesterday, the duo unleashed another killer song via their soundcloud page called “Switch.” The track is a screeching, synth-based banger with the same sonic and fresh rhyme delivery as the aforementioned track. This time though, is Kelin Kaardal’s mesmerizing, baby-like-voice hooks that shine throughout the track.

Get ready ’cause “Switch” will get you hooked!

CHARLI XCX – WHAT I LIKE [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

 

Electro-pop-princess Charli XCX and her bad-girl-crew throw a slumber-party and cameras are there to capture all the mischief! Watch the cute video for the new single, “What I Like.”

Charli tells Noisey:

“What I Like” is just a cute bedroom jam about hanging out and messing around and falling in love. It’s just me fantasizing about living by the beach with someone and just falling in love. We found an old VHS camera at our house and rented a room for the night in a hotel and shot the video with my two friends and director Ryan Andrews, who does all my videos. We ordered pizza and partied and played around with Roxy (the dog).

“What I Like” is a production by DJ\Producer J£ZUS MILLION and is taken from Charli XCX’s debut album, True Romance arriving on April 15th.
