Anna Shoemaker – East Side Too (feat. TYLERxCORDY)

Track of the week. Delicate melodies contradict dark, deconstructive beats.

Grace Carter – Heal Me

Track of the week. Although this was released last week, I still can’t stop obsessing over it. That chorus gives me CHILLS!

Lolo Zouaï – Jade (feat. Blood Orange)

Track of the week. From the choice of collaboration, to the vocals, melody and beat work… I can’t find any fault in this song at all. Love it a ton!

ST.MARTiiNS – Jazzboy

Track of the week. It’s not an easy listen at first – a little messy and quirky, but it grows into a catchy and charming sound.

New Music: Travelle

Track of the week. Already causing a stir in his native Norway for some time, this talent fuses mellow hip hop with a poppy edge.

Dorian Electra – Man To Man

Track of the week. Mixing elements of 80’s and 00’s pop while still making a very current sound with some interesting lyrics.

This is the first release from Dorian Electra that has really got me interested, so I’m looking forward to seeing what 2019 brings…

New Music: Chloe Bodur

Track of the week. This sends me back to some of the feelings that ran through me when I first heard Amy Winehouse’s ‘Frank’… It’s a new take on jazz that is effortless and gorgeous.

Blanche – Moment

Track of the week. Blanche gained fame last year after representing Belgium at Eurovision.

While she didn’t win (the song she performed was considered ahead of it’s time for a music contest that has a notorious reputation for showing off the Continent’s cheesier side), she has continued to develop her uniquely dark pop sound…

New Music: Lucky Daye

Track of the week. This takes me back to old-school Stevie Wonder. RnB delivered in the purest, most effortless way.

Devault, Matt Maeson – Between The Words

Track of the week. A song that portrays pure raw emotion, delivered with dark electronic beats, served in the most exquisite detail.

New Music: Dominic Fike

Track of the week. Carelessly charming yet smooth RnB pop. You really need to listen to the entire EP of demo’s though because each track is genuinely special

New Music: Lennon Stella

Track of the week. It’s not an easy balance mixing a cheesy pop melody with a raw indie-pop edge like this. Lennon Stella’s ‘Bad’ has somehow managed to feel like innocent bubblegum pop with a sinister undertone.

New Music: Twin XL

Track of the week. Is it a boy band? Is it indie pop? Not really sure where this falls in the spectrum but it’s super catchy, brilliantly written and overall just too damn fresh not to be track of the week.

DESIIRE – Paradise

Track of the week. Put the volume up high and feel some soulful disco served up here with the slickest beats you could imagine.

New Music: IV Jay

Track of the week. Everything about this production excites me… Balancing pop with RnB and adding a killer beat and slick sample.

New Music: Victor Leksell

Track of the week. I must admit, the first time I heard this kid back in June I didn’t really feel it so much, but I came across the same again yesterday and it’s been on repeat ever since. Not sure why, aside from that Robyn-esque, pulsating beat. It’s an intriguing Scandi talent… and I’m hooked.
