mura masa - someday somewhere

Mura Masa featuring Jay Prince “Low”

Coming across super-talented teenage artists can hit the adult spirit like a double-edged sword. It’s exciting to get an early glimpse at the intriguing routes music can take in the days, months and years to come, but damn if catching onto the spectacular waves of someone with eons less life experience makes you feel like […]

Låpsley “Falling Short”

Boasting an enchanting combo of intriguingly complex vocal arrangements and icily understated electro-pop productions, 18-year-old Liverpool-based talent Låpsley immediately leap-frogged to the head of the buzzworthy class earlier this year thanks to a string of killer solo gems “Station” and “Painter (valentine)” and equally beguiling collaborative one-offs. All these months (and a big co-sign from […]

AlunaGeorge “Supernatural”

From the many futuro-sleek morsels of hookery found on their 2013 debut Body Music to their many blog-beloved remixes and smash Disclosure collaboration “White Noise”, London duo AlunaGeorge made crafting infectious synth&b offerings (with a slight experimental twinge) seem ridiculously easy. A brief hiatus later, hearing new entry “Supernatural” proves the act have lost none […]

JONES “Deep”

There was a moment in the fall of 2012, when Dev Hynes collaborations with Solange (“Losing You”) and Sky Ferreira (“Everything Is Embarrassing”) were getting steady replay love through many a online music junkie headphones, sparking an immense desire for the future of pop to only continue to build off this entrancing template of female […]

Hira King “Run”

For anyone who drowns themselves in forever-long Soundcloud listening sessions as much as we do, one of the more annoying aspects of scouting for new music can be the snippet-length offering. Film trailers have their purpose, as do TV adverts, but minute-plus bits of music can feel like the cruelest of entertainment industry teases, especially […]

Seyr “RHB”/ “Tainted”

Hailing from London, though they sound more like they’ve stepped in from an entirely different dimension, mysterious newcomer duo Seyr may only have two entries to their catalog so far, but these gems more than prove that the act have a serious talent for crafting seductive wisps of minimalist electro-soul sonic sculptures. “RHB” and “Tainted” […]

Jade “Don’t Walk Away (Faces Bootleg)”

Though often overlooked in a crowded ’90’s R&B girl group field that included such smash-spewing behemoths like TLC, En Vogue, Destiny’s Child and Xscape, Chicago-born, dookie braids & boots-rockin’ trio Jade more than held their own on the charts with six Top 20 R&B hits spanning 1992-1994. Their biggest hit? 1992 springtime jam “Don’t Walk […]

Jessie Ware “Want Your Feeling”

In the lead-up to her October-due sophomore release Tough Love, Jessie Ware has previewed the project with a Prince-meets-Kate Bush midtempo, a synth-y Quiet Storm groove and a stripped back, country-kissed ballad. All good jams, mind you, but nothing that could light up a dancefloor in their original forms. Newest Tough Love tease, the James […]

Jessie Ware “Say You Love Me”

If for some mysterious reason, you’ve yet to understand why Jessie Ware is consistently on the tips of tongues as THAT chick, it likely has something to do with the UK songstress constantly pushing out the best doses of sophisticated diva soul-pop this side of Sade and Whitney Houston. On the heels of Ware’s much […]
