Excited to show you guys a new talent named Sakima. I found this guy off pinboardblog, and I immediately fell in love. Sakima carries himself in a James Blake sort of way, but doesn’t lose his own flow. He has a very smooth and soulful vocal, and it just fits over the haunting beat. The whole track as a whole is just stunning and will take you to another place. I’m just now discovering him, so I really hope to post every step on his way to what could be a very big career.
Two of my favorites blend their very unique styles and create something amazing. Maverick Sabre’s soulful vibes, and Gorgon City’s house/dance vibes mixed together is perfection on this new track ‘Coming Home’. I’m mostly glad to hear Maverick back on the scene, his talent was definitely missed. I definitely see this being a hit in the UK, and hopefully enough to bring them over to the US because I would love to see them both!
SBTRKT is back with another genius track titled ‘New Dorp, New York’ from his upcoming album Wonder Where We Land. This funky track features the lead singer from Vampire Weekend, Ezra Koenig, and everything about this track is awesome. There isn’t much else to say really, just dive into the track and enjoy!
Wonder Where We Land drops September 22nd.
Words can’t explain how much this needed to happen. I was very excited when I saw Mary perform ‘F for U’ with Disclosure at one of their New York shows, then heard the news that it was going to be an official track just fueled the fire. Soon after, many reports came out of The queen of soul being in the studio with the duo, and now we have this masterpiece. Mary J’s album is produced completely by Disclosure, and this is exactly the direction that she needs to take it. She is doing something no other soul singer is doing right now, putting her way above the rest right now, which is why she is queen.
I have a lot of respect for Mary and her acknowledgement of the UK scene, and while locking disclosure in for her album, she is going to go miles with this album. I absolutely can’t get enough of this track, and need the rest of the album right now!
Watch out world, Mary J. is back!
Oh My Gosh Becky, Becky look at her butt.
watch this on mute, and you will be set.
I love me some Ariana Grande, although she did lose a lot of credit for making that so called song ‘Break Free’ with Zedd. She redeems herself here with a smooth pop/r&b vibe track titled ‘Love Me Harder’ featuring none other than The Weeknd. She is giving me a little old school Mariah vibe on this track which is why I fell in love with her in the first place, and I really hope the rest of her album sounds more like this, because while I loved ‘Problem’, lets be honest, It is getting quite the overplay. Anyway, take a listen below!
This song has been creeping up the charts, and been giving Rita Ora the necessary exposure she needs in the USA. This is one of the standout tracks off her album, partly because of Rita Ora, which is surprising because I’m not the biggest fan of her solo stuff. Anyway, take a look at the video above!
