Dingwei featuring Suzanne Vega – Gypsy

22 Jun

This is dark and delicious. Dingwei, from China, does something quite wonderful with Suzanne’s distinctive vocal – a proper float into the night. Would be perfect for the Twin Peaks reboot.

Atella featuring Cal – Anyone Out There

22 Jun

Described as Cosmo-pop – love that! These Norwegians have made a super cute spacey banger with a mantra like chorus questioning whether we are alone on this planet of ours.

Oriion – Live Another Lie

22 Jun

I’m hearing Baltimora, Hurts and MNEK on this top tune – part Europop, part 80s sheen. Looking forward to hearing more from Oriion.

Kedr Livanskiy – Ariadna

21 Jun

Russia’s finest has just announced a full length album and here is the stunning title track. If you are a CD buyer, like me, you’ll be pleased to know Kedr’s wonderful EP ‘January Sun’ is included within the album. Looking forward to this rather special release, which is expected in September.

RAC featuring St Lucia – The Beautiful Game

21 Jun

RAC’s new album ‘EGO’ arrives next month and it has some very high quality guest stars including MNDR and Scavenger Hunt. Pick of the bunch is this collab with T&D faves St Lucia. Indeed this could easily be a bonus track from St Lucia’s marvellous ‘Matter’ album.

Young Ejecta – Build A Fire

18 Jun

The most angelic vocal sits atop a synthline from an 80s sci-fi movie. Young Ejecta have just released their career highlight in ‘Build A Fire’. Colossal.

BC Unidos – Bicycle

18 Jun

Patrik Berger has been involved with some brilliant pop music in recent years – most notably Robyn’s ‘Dancing On My Own’. His roster is madly impressive – from Lana to Noonie to Tove Styrke to Loreen. He has a new project and here it is. ‘Bicycle’ will be stuck in your brain for weeks.
