Happy release day RÜFÜS DU SOL! Today we get to experience SOLACE in its entirety, and I am happy to say that it’s every bit as amazing as we thought it would be. This Australian trio takes us through a sonic journey with synthy melodies and dreamy vocals for the most epic vibes … it’s like the best dream we’ve ever had. I chose to post “New Sky” because of the contagious dance beats and massive feels …. but really the whole album is amazing! If there is on thing you do today, it should be listening to this!
LA pop songstress Haneri returns with “Real Love,” a cheeky, porcelain pop gem. Former runner up on Singapore Idol, Haneri is breaking down the walls around her, redefining her legacy as an individual creator. Haneri blends Asian pop with American electronic as a flickering, animated beat is soothed by her charming vocals. Expelling a playful energy, this optimistic joint is an ode her 11-month-old pup, Snowball. The carefree nature of this track shines with each transition, breathing life into Haneri’s humor, affection, and prophecy as a star.
Intellectually arousing, seductive, psychedelic- a fraction of the descriptors one could use to define North Elements’ latest single, “It’s Always Been ~ You.” Boasting the crisp, feminine vocals of Ayelle this joint is riddled with delicate, charming, syncopated production showcasing North Elements’ refined dexterity. A slight, gritty film rests atop the finely chopped beat, making a near-vintage sound become cosmic. Breezy and lush, this framework of sultry sounds is set to be a fall staple.
Channeling hypnotic, gangter-esque frequencies, Rain Main (formerly of Krewella) unveils “Mirage” featuring BLI. A unique take on hip-hop and rap, “Mirage” is a collage of echoing soundscapes that illuminate animated, bold rhymes. Rich, looming melodies drip into subtle spaces of vibrancy and zest. With this distinguished unveiling, Rain Man proves that his dexterity extends beyond the horizons of Krewella. Personifying the sounds of a well rolled blunt, “Mirage” is a phat beat with moving parts made of swagger and kick. Tune in.
Disco-pop queen, Harlee is back with vibrancy per her latest single, “GIANT.” Likened to the sounds of Dua Lipa and Jess Glynne, this youthful dancing queen weighs in at only 18 years old. Beginning her career at age 11, and following an upward trajectory since then, Harlee is revolutionizing contemporary pop. “GIANT” is saturated with an ebb and flow of dance-floor-ready production, further punctuated by her stirring, robust lyricism. Stitched together with a DNA of glitz, glam, and trendsetting, Harlee is blazing trails for young women in music across the globe. Lace up your shuffle sneaks and get to know this spunky star before her Friday release.
A slackened sensuality oscillates DELIA DANE in her latest single, “Kinda Nice.” Formerly known as DVWEZ, the Florida-born, NYC-hustling songstress is unapologetically herself, balancing easy, indie-electro reverb with a succinct R&B cadence. Her velvet vocals breathe life into an experimental, down-tempo hip-hop beat. Balancing the fine line between ethereal and profoundly grounded, “Kinda Nice” is laced together with a strong feminine presence- both seductive and empowering. At the heels of her well-received 2017 Paradise EP DELIA DANE shows no signs of slowing down. Dripping in a self-defined swagger, this rhythmic siren is one to watch.
After a wildly successful release of two hit singles and his Funk Tape ’18, Jenaux is back again with only the grooviest of beats. “Could This Be Love” featuring T-Elle is out now on Gramatik’s Lowtemp records, and showcases only the best from the New York City based producer. Laced with electrifying piano and poignant percussive twangs, Jenaux’s future funk production style soars alongside T-Elle’s powerful vocals. A commanding disco feat, “Could This Be Love” provides an irresistible and intoxicating mix, demonstrating Jenaux’s impressive ability to breathe life into sound. His newest future funk endeavor manages to tell a thoughtful story in just over three minutes, and will leave listeners coming back for more instantaneously. “Could This Be Love” feat. T-Elle is yet another impressive mark in Jenaux’s already spectacular, funky playbook.
