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.

ADI ULMANSKY feat. BORGORE – Was It You? [Official Video]

Producer\Singer-songwriter\rapper and all around baddest chic, Adi Ulmansky teams up with rapper Borgore for the trip-hop, R&B-tinged tune, “Was It You?” her latest single and video taken from the killer, Hurricane Girl EP.

In the video, a visually mesmerizing treat directed by Gal Muggia, we see Ulmansky in stunning blue-hair, analyzing the numbing phases of her relationship; “Just where you left me, Wait, was it I that left you? Oh god, my head is melting, It’s a hazy view”  she soulfully sings as the world around her fractures into (perfectly squared) pieces.

The standout track is the only vulnerable moment from the energetic Hurricane Girl  so we’re glad it received the video treatment. Although, we sort of knew it was coming. Adi revealed to us that it’s her favorite track from the EP in our interview with her last year (here).

Check out the video!

“Was It You?” is available now via iTunes, part of the Hurricane Girl EP

Premiere: JESSIE WARE – “TOUGH LOVE” [New track!]

UK soul chanteuse Jessie Ware returns with the beautiful and flawless new single, “Tough Love.” The single is the first piece of music to be taken from her soon to be announced second album, written by Jessie and BenZel and produced by BenZel in New York earlier this year.

Jessie comments:
“I had just finished a run of shows in the States and went to NY to work with BenZel for a couple weeks, mainly as a different focus to touring.  I didn’t have any expectations or pressures with what would come out of those two weeks, and think ‘Tough Love’ sums this up. It was me experimenting with my voice and having fun with it. It just felt right and kind of dictated the route of the next album, much like ‘Devotion’ did on my first album”
