I love discovering new talent. As a blogger, I receive a lot of emails of new artist and music; some have a lot of potential but very few are ready for the spotlight. London based mystery act, BAYOU seems to be there already. The hazy and gloomy nostalgic track “Cherry Cola” combines elements of R&B and dreamy electronica with vocals that fall somewhere in between The Weeknd and Hot Chip. The artistry on this debut track is so brilliantly executed that it feels familiar yet surprisingly fresh. I love, love, love everything about this song.
Now, I’m a huge fanatic of film director Wong Kar-Wai, I’ve seen every single one of his movies. The video for “Cherry Cola” appears to take cues from one of his love-is-imposible kinda films. This makes “Cherry Cola” a much more special song.
Early this year Belgium producer, A.N.D.Y gave us plenty of reasons to hit the dancefloor with his glorious 80′s inspired remix of Jupiter’s“One O Six” (Here) Now the talented producer steps into the spotlight with his first single, appropriately named, “Pump It Up” featuring none other than Queens’ MC Nyemiah Supreme.
This track is pure house love. It’s a massive jam, so play it LOUD!
The “”Pump It Up” EP is out now on Smile Recordings.
Check out the brand new track by Portland’s CHROMATICS! The nostalgic, icy new track, “Cherry” is taken from the upcoming Italians Do It Better compilation album After Dark II, which features works by Glass Candy, Johnny Jewel, Desire and more!

My past is like an apple tree, Does he ever wanna taste it? Ever since he came here through my bedroom door, I’ve been a wild child.
I’ve been obsessed with Karin Parkever since i got a hold of her Tiger Dreams EP back in 2011…but I’ve never got the chance to introduce her on the blog.
The Swedish electro-goth-pop singer recently released the video for the incredible,“Wild Child,” a highlight of many from the incredible album, Highwire Poetry. The record, released this year, was influenced by her strict religious upbringing in a remote Swedish town and the three years she spent in a Japanese missionary school. Highwire Poetry contains productions by Fever Ray and The Knife producer, Christoffer Berg.
If you’re new to Karin Park I urge you to seek out this record! Highwire Poetry is one of the best releases of the year! Below are some highlights from the record.
Former Hercules and Love Affair singer Kim Ann Foxman steps into the spotlight with her first solo project. Listen to the soulful house tune “Return It” and the nu-disco-house dance number “Hypnotic Dance” off her newly released EP.
When discussing her new music and debut album, Foxman said, “There will be moments of dancing as well as a good sing-a-long. It won’t be stuck in one specific genre. Of course it’ll include house-y vibes but some other elements for sure as well. R&B and freestyle influences too, as well as slow jams.”
The video for “Return It” was directed by Jonathan Turner with art direction by Silvia Prada. My very good friend Mey has a cameo in the video (at 0:17 mark with semi-shaved head and blond ponytails)
