Finally Jamie XX puts out another tune which will be released on a 12” Vinyl and digitally on May, 2nd. “Sleep Sound” is a wonderful, typical Jamie XX track that is perfectly fitting to the arriving spring time.

As spring is just around the corner, it’s time for an appropriate tune. And Giraffage’s Remix of “Don’t Wait”, originally from Mapei, is probably a good start for both, spring and this week!

London-based singer-songwriter Douglas Dare releases his debut album Whelm on Erased Tapes. With the piano at the core, Dare vocalises his short prose and poems to a backdrop of drums, electronics and brass.
The first glimpse on his new album gives us the first track he just put out on Soundcloud. Nile is a perfect example for the fascinating mixture of electronic and piano music and his beautiful voice. 

So February starts with a new track by newcomer Oceaan - lovely electronic/electronica soulful sound again. 

Australian Singer Songwriter St. South just put out a really great Remix by Infinitefreefall - get the free track and check it out!

I keep it simple: it was just impossible that something bad would come out if New York-based Rapper Bishop Nehru & Britian’s new electronic wunderkinder Disclosure come together. And so here it is: “You Stressin’” is just perfect!

For nearly a decade, Tycho has been known as the musical alias of Scott Hansen, but with the release of Awake – his second LP for Ghostly International – the solo project has evolved into a three-piece band. Relating closer to post-rock than ambient soundscapes, the record is situated in the present, sounding more like Hansen than drawing from his influences. “This is, in many ways, the first true Tycho record.”

His newest output and therefore the second official single from the upcoming album is a beautiful masterpiece! 

Already introduced as one to watch for 2014 here and on several other platforms, Shivum Sharma released a new track on Soundcloud yesterday. A great example for a perfect piano-electronic mixture and one to listen to immediately!

And another one to watch for 2014! Well actually he was already one to watch for 2013 but finally Sam Smith will get into everyone’s focus this year. His newest track, again a mixture of new-style soul and electronic influences, will bring Spring directly into our heads!

Rejjie Snow is probably one of the most interesting young rappers these days.. An example why he unifies contrasts? Even though his sound reminds us more of Tyler. The Creator, Rejjie is not from the US, neither part of Tyler’s famous rap group. This young fellow is from Ireland and moreover just signed to Elton John’s label. Seems the Sir has some interest in Hip Hop these days. Anyways, Rejjie’s newest track “Nights Over Georgia” is Jazz & Soul influenced and dominated by his unique voice. Check it out, he is one to watch for 2014!
