Kiesza is back

Kiesza Back With A Bang

              Kiesza

 

UK chart-topping Canadian sensation Kiesza delivers one of the most highly-anticipated comebacks of recent times with her new release ‘Phantom of The Dance Floor’.

Following her debut release ‘Hideaway’ and that video going viral and straight into the #1 spot in the UK charts as well as 21 other countries around the world, the cult star has since released her debut album ‘Sound of a Woman’, written for Rihanna and recorded tracks with UK legends Duran Duran.

Now following a lengthy hiatus having unpicked seemingly endless legal tangles with her label, joining forces with High Time to release music on her own terms, one of the most iconic female artists of the modern era strikes back with a brash, unapologetically huge new banger in ‘Phantom of The Dance Floor’.

Calgary’s favourite daughter again delivers that particular kind of snarling, brooding house bassline whilst layering an innovative, operatic vocal alongside her own pop tones. Bringing a truly dramatic, phantasmagorical aspect to US house, this is a smoking volcano of a pop gem, lacing back to her earlier roots and completely reinventing it. Together with the kind of bonkers video that such a glorious comeback deserves, ‘Phantom of The Dance Floor’ looks set to re-ignite the public discourse around an artist that remains as present, necessary and iconic as she’s ever been. Get ready to hear this hammered in the warehouse clubs around the world; Kiesza’s done it again.

Komo - Vibe N Ting

UK Afroswing rising Star Komo unveils New Music Video

              Komo

 

Taken from his recently released debut EP of the same name, which was released last month to rave reviews, and on the back of recent support from BBC 1Xtra, Capital Xtra, KISS Fresh, Spotify, Apple Music, Reprezent Radio, and The Beat London, among others, for his recent underground hits such as ‘No Problem’ and ‘Pull Up (Remix)’ featuring the likes of Double S and Ekeno, fast-rising UK Afroswing artist KOMO is proud to unveil the exciting new music video for his ‘Vibe N Ting’ single.

Produced by Ayo Beatz, who has previously worked with the likes of Wretch 32, Chip, Labrinth,Wiley and Jason Derulo, ‘Vibe N Ting’ is an infectious summer-ready Afroswing jam, with lush Dancehall and Afrobeats sensibilities, which sees Komo flexing his rapping and singing abilities to great effect, as he promotes a positive, joyful, excited and optimistic energy throughout the track. According to Komo, ‘Vibe N Ting’ is “the perfect sound track for anyone looking to have a good time”.

For the ‘Vibe N Ting’ visuals, Komo has linked up with budding director Eric Myers, whose directorial credits include working with Lotto Boyz, Ms Banks, Sneakbo and Cashtastic, among others, to deliver a colourful and vibrant offering, which not only captures the essence of London summer time motives excellently, but also brings the ‘Vibe N Ting’ track to life, and shows Komo in his true element, highlighting his fun, boisterous and expressive personality and character.

Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘Vibe N Ting’ and its accompanying visuals, Komo says, “the ‘Vibe N Ting’ idea came to me during a challenging phase of my life. I had just finished a 2-year accelerated degree programme from university with a 1st class degree achievement and all I wanted to do after that was just party and have a good time. ‘Vibe N Ting’ really showcases my musical abilities and how I am feeling about life right now. As an artist, we are always looking for our sound, and my sound has surely evolved over time. I just want everyone to take in ‘Vibe N Ting’ as it’s my best work yet”.

New Noise List You Need

Tracks To Have You Catching A Vibe Part 1

So we have decided to give you guys a list of bangers that really should be in your library. All these tunes are sick in their own way and give you their own vibe so you can skank out in your own space.

From Soulful House to Grime music, we scour as much parts of the world as possible to give what we believe are dope tunes which have a long shelf life . 

Sit back, put your headphones on and listen to tracks we think will have you up on your feet!

 

Manga

             

 

Manga has maintained his own sound and style and never varied off throughout the years. 'True To Me' displays Manga's lyrical talent over a sick Grime beat alongside JME & Frisco. Speak of Grime Originals and Manga's name is on the list, no arguments.

 

 

             

AJ Tracey

A little different to the smash that was just released in 'Butterflies', AJ Tracey switches it up and brings his hard rap flows back with this new one in 'LO(V/S)ER'. Gritty and hard video to match the equally gritty lyrics being said by the West London Rapper.

             

Chip

Doing a good job in prolonging our summer vibes, Chip delivers a dope summer fusion track in 'My Girl' with Red Rat. This is another track that proves Chip really can go over any beat and deliver a smash. Red Rat was exactly what was needed for this beat.... o noooooo.

 
             

Fomichev

We always say a remix has to be just as good as the original or better and this Dance / Deep House fused remix of 'This Is America' will have you on your feet throughout. Whether you wanna shuffle or scrunch your face up to the heavy bass, this remix caters to all.
 

             

Igor Frank

With Festival season coming to a close it's a good job Igor Frank has produced a Deep House banger to help us all relive the Festival lifestyle we all adopted during the summer. Adding in the soulful breaks and the smooth voice for the lyrics, singalong crew is back.

Jaded - Young

Nice Electronic Vibes

              Jaded

 

Following their huge recent cult hit ‘In The Morning’ and their club smash ‘Pancake’ – picking up immediate support from the likes of Jax Jones, BBC R1 and Radio stations across Europe – and racing to a cumulative 50M Spotify streams in the process - electronic project Jaded release their highly-anticipated new banger, ‘Young’.

Another wild, inventive instrumental packing as much brass as it does synth, it’s a trademark rugged, infectious proposition that continues their unique approach to contemporary dance music depicting the rugged, eternal optimism of youth.

Speaking on the track, Jaded state: “‘Young’ is a celebration of youth. Our music’s always a reflection on what’s happening in the world, taking issues and responding in a way that’s reflective and fun. We want people to dance and enjoy themselves to what we make. Jaded is our counter to the pressures of today!”

Made up of Nari, Jordan and Teo, Jaded continue to represent London’s melting pot culture to the fullest - meeting there from Iran, Italy and London respectively. Their unorthodox approach to both songwriting and production has garnered them support worldwide across the likes of broadsheets to the likes of NOISEY and COMPLEX. Continuing to grow in their weirdness and ambitions with a forthcoming EP and live show to follow suit, the international trio follow in the footsteps of Basement Jaxx and Groove Armada in terms of unique homegrown talent with a real cult following across Europe and the UK. Jaded are back, get ready for a lot more from them this year.

Nina Nesbitt Showcases Some Soulful Vibes

Soulful Vibes with Great Vocals

              Nina Nesbitt

 

Luca Schreiner has remixed Nina Nesbitt’s latest single ‘Loyal To Me’. The rising German electronic DJ/Producer, who has delivered remixes for Louis Tomlinson, James Arthur, Alessia Cara, Shaggy and Pit Bull, has added his trademark stamp to the single, applying deep house grooves with a hint of tropical influence. The result is the perfect dancefloor anthem! .

The original version of ‘Loyal to Me’, produced by Fraser T Smith (Stormzy/Adele/Drake/Florence and the Machine),has now amassed a huge 4 million streams. While the video finds Nina performing hiplet, a style of dance that fuses hip hop and ballet and sees Nina performing en pointe for most of the video.

“Loyal To Me is influenced by the independent-women spirit of the 90s and is a self-help guide to dating” Ninaexplains “It’s a list of symptoms you need to look out for when you fear you may be dating someone who doesn’t have the best intentions”.

Having grown-up in a small village just outside Edinburgh, Nina Nesbitt enjoyed a whirlwind of success with the‘Peroxide’ album, but she was soon ready to move on. An organic evolution, her 2016 track ‘Chewing Gum’ was the sound of her breaking out of her comfort zone and indulging fully her love of pop. Her desire to challenge herself continued with the low-key ‘Life in Colour’ EP which found Nina writing emotional and sometimes dark stories that were inspired by experiences which fans had sent to her.

Still only 23-years-old, Nina Nesbitt has found a way to make it work for her in an industry that often doesn’t give you the time to settle into the artist you want to be. Rather than rush into making another album for the sake of it, she waited for the inspiration to strike and let it slowly take shape organically. What she excels at is being an artist, but one that's fully in control – the very best kind.

Rude Kid vs FTSE vs Jaykae 'Honey Dew'

Rude Kid + FTSE + Jaykae = A BANGER!

              Rude Kid

 

Featuring the unmistakable and wholly Brummy vocals of grime legend Jaykae, ‘Honey Dew’ is a testament to all three of its creators. Delving in to all of the awesome elements that make genres such as Grime, UKG and House, timeless and loveable, the record instantly stands out as a future club classic and was clearly created to emit feel-good vibes rather than being governed by the constraints of any genre.

With a soft female vocal opening the track against the magical, melody of strings, ‘Honey Dew’ is an instant ear grabber, but as soon as the bass drops out with reverb and Rude Kid’s ‘Are You Ready’ tag kicks in, you know this one is about to get even more serious. Queue Jaykae’s skippy flows, witty, magnetizing lyricism and a vibsey bassline, and this one will instantly have you hooked.

Having become a vital component in the rise of the UK urban scene, Rude Kid has put his sound to remixes for the likes of Marshmello, Laura Mvula, Gorgon City, Chase & Status and Wilkinson. His own productions are probably some of your favourite records by the likes of Skepta, Wiley, Kano or Ghetts whilst his passion and understanding of musical genres has seen him take the helm at Kiss FM’s destination grime show #KissGrime.

Meanwhile Birmingham producer FTSE has been on the buttons for remixes for the likes of Little Mix, Kideko and Elderbrook as well as writing and producing tracks for Mø, Peking Duk and Burna Boy whilst also releasing his own catalogue of music including the Donae’O & Shola Ama featuring ‘Work U Out’, followed by ‘Pork Chop’ and ‘I’ll Show U A Good Time’.

Grime master Jaykae is the final piece of the puzzle to make up the anthemic ‘Honey Dew’. Known equally for his dexterity and ferocity in MC battles as he is for his lyrical genius and delivery in his singles, Jaykae has worked with everyone from Skepta, Rudimental and Mike Skinner to Lotto Boyz and Mist. Stand out singles such as ‘Moscow’, ‘Pull Up’, ‘No’ and ‘Toothache’, which featured on hit TV series Power, all roll in to millions of streams and views making him one of the biggest and most popular UK emcees.

Tipped for big things by everyone from DJ Mag, who states “it’s time for the Rude Kid to have his moment to shine” to DJ’s at the BBC who have tipped FTSE as “one to watch”, the producers are individually in high demand for their ever evolving sound and ability to create monster records. With their collaboration for ‘Honey Dew’ and their unique styles merging together, the results couldn’t get any sweeter.

Prince Rapid - Fresh N Clean

Something To Carry Summer Into September

              Prince Rapid

 

Summer is nearly over but no need to fret Prince Rapid will have you Carnival ready with his anthem ‘Fresh N Clean’. Infused with intricate layers of bouncy baselines, addictive Afro percussion sealed with a wave of catchy bars the track will have you playing it on loop. The visuals are filmed across different locations in London showcasing people vibing to the mesmerising beat. ‘Fresh N Clean’ amplifies nothing but good vibes and will have you skanking in the streets.

Featuring both his production and his vocals on the record, the seasoned producer balances the two perfectly to allow space for the instrumental to perform, making it a lively, body-moving joint.

Having been the man behind tracks from some of the biggest names in UK music, including Dizzee Rascal, Tinie Tempah, Skepta, Jme, Stormzy, Kano, Chip, Wiley, Wretch 32, Devlin and international Jamaican star Mavado, Prince Rapid is one of the most sought-after producers to bring the best out of an artist and capture the original and genuine UK sounds. His legacy in production stems all the way back do the roots of grime music, having been a lynchpin in the genre’s sound and progression as he was not only responsible for the standout Ruff Sqwad sound but also made his initial mark in the UK charts with his production credits across Tinchy Stryder’s gold selling album Catch 22.

His consistent flow of productions has been scattered with his own self-releases as he dips in and out of the artist/producer role, clearly at his own pleasure and enjoyment. Speaking of his latest self-release Fresh N Clean, Prince Rapid says “It’s very tense out here with the violence on the streets so I wanted to create an experience that allows people to loosen up and dance. It’s all about vibes and enjoyment”.
