Eden is the second single by soon-to-be-huge London R&B artist Ben Khan. Having slept on his debut single Drive (Part 1), there was no way I was going to make the same mistake and pass up the opportunity to share a track this good.
Eden is a really great tune, that mixes seductive lyrics with dark instrumentals and some very smooth beats. It reminds me a little of Jai Paul, which is never ever a bad thing. I can’t wait to hear more.
With tunes like Nuclear Seasons, Stay Away, You (Ha Ha Ha) and I Love It (Icona Pop) under her belt, it’s abundantly clear that Charli XCX has a talent for laying down ridiculously catchy pop tunes.
Earlier in the year, she let go of her debut album True Romance. It’s collection of some of the most infectious and cleverly written pop songs I’ve heard in quite some time, and a welcome escape from the drivel that’s taking over the charts these days.
The video for her latest offering, SuperLove, was shot in Tokyo and it’s yet another addictive release with one if the best pop instrumentals you’ll hear this year. Check it out.
Having already dropped Numbers On The Boards and the Kendrick Lamar-assisted Nosetalgia from his upcoming new album, My Name Is My Name, Pusha-T just shared the video for his newest track King Push, which was produced by Kanye West and Joaquin Phoenix.
My Name Is My Name is due October 8 on Def Jam. Pre-order here.
Lemonade is taken from Only Real’s upcoming new EP, Days In The City. Days In The City drops on 7th October via Luv Luv Luv Records, and you can grab the iTunes pre-order here. Check out the tune below.
Indian-Norwegian pop singer Samsaya has a really fun new single out called Stereotype. The song is lifted from her forthcoming new album Bombay Calling.
Stereotype is a catchy slice of radio-friendly pop, that I’m sure will get plenty of air-time.
The single was released on iTunes (Norway) on September 20th, alongside the premiere of the music video directed by Patrick Katzman.
Madlib & Freddie Gibbs‘ Deeper EP came out earlier today through Madlib’s own Madlib Invazion label. You can stream a track from it called Harold’s, down below.
Their second collaborative project, Piñata, is slated for a February 4 release.
Up-and-coming Danish electro-pop artist MØ has just released Never Wanna Know, the second track to be shared from her upcoming Bikini Daze EP, and quite possibly her finest offering to date.
Following on from the fist-pumping Diplo collaboration, XXX 88, Never Wanna Know is a classy blend of elegantly impressive vocals and swooning Wall of Sound-esque instrumentals. It’s really, really good!
MØ’s Bikini Daze EP will be released on October 18 through Sony.
Dave Harrington, who forms one half of Darkside alongside Nicolas Jaar, has shared a rather gorgeous remix of Why Didn’t You Save Me, a song that originally appeared on Jaar’s 2011 EP, Don’t Break My Love.
While the original version was trademark Nicolas Jaar, a captivating blend of ambient and electronic stylings, Harrington’s is a slightly different affair.
By adding the seductive vocals of Tamara, as well as beefing-up the track up with some pulsating beats, he has breathed new life into an already great tune.
London newcomer KHUSHI has unveiled the official video to his fantastic debut single, Magpie. The tune was sent to me two weeks ago, and since then it has deservedly been getting quite a lot of buzz. It’s a brilliant track and the Ryan Goodman-directed video is equally as good. Watch it down below.
