Busy P | Mayer Hawthorne

Listen: Cool Uncle – Game Over (feat. Mayer Hawthorne)

This is a pretty unique sound… It’s a cross-generational duo of R&B legend Bobby Caldwell and Grammy winning producer Jack Splash.

Listen: Mayer Hawthorne ‘Crime’ ft. Kendrick Lamar

A very different type of track from the usual that Mayer Hawthorne comes out with, but still very slick.

Mayer Hawthorne and Jessie Ware- on the same track…

… Yes, it’s as good as you’d expect it to be. Mayer Hawthorne never fails to deliver in my view. This one is taken from his upcoming album, ‘Where Does This Door Go’ out July 16th.

I love that Mayer Hawthorne throws out these random grooves every now and again.

The return of French House… Welcome back SebastiAn!

Let it be known that I think French House is one of the best genres of music that I’ve ever let myself listen to. It’s defined so many big moments in my life, and for that I’ll hold it to my heart like the rockers do to the Rolling Stones or the hippies do to Jimmy Hendrix. For me, Daft Punk, Cassius, Justice, Air, DJ Mehdi, etc remind me of what it felt like to be a reckless hot mess stumbling through school and uni. Anyway, one of the newer kids on the block, SebastiAn, has carved a reputation for himself by making dirty funky remixes like this:

His debut album is due to hit shops at the end of the month, and I for one am very excited about it all. This is one of the tracks set to be on the record, and it features ‘it-boy’ of the moment, Mayer Hawthorne. It’s just so sexy (sounds a bit like Prince’s ‘Kiss’ on foreplay), and I feel like in a year’s time this is what pop songs will sound like:

There’s also a track with M.I.A. although I sadly don’t care much for her. But I know her contribution will be amazing. If you love this style of music like I do, check out Ed Banger’s roster of artists (of which SebastiAn belongs to).

New Music: Fitz & The Tantrums

I saw this band on Perez Hilton this evening, I usually don’t agree with his music tastes but this band is awesome. Think Mayer Hawthorne, The Noisettes and some Paloma Faith mixed in a happy jar. Check out here. There’s also a free download of ‘Moneygrabber’ which is really good!
