I Hate U – SZA
SZA is back with a soulful new track that she has revealed began as a therapeutic exercise and turned into her newest single. Putting her impeccable songwriting and singing skills on full display, SZA crafts a resentful song with a laid back beat and some exceptional vocal movement.
Rise – Purple Disco Machine (ft. Tasita D’Mour)
Purple Disco Machine does not miss. His newest song, “Rise,” features singer Tasita D’Mour’s awesome vocals alongside PDM’s signature brand of disco house. PDM continues to prove time and time again how elite he is in the musical world.
I’m Into It – Paul Oakenfold, ZHU, & Velvet Cash
The “godfather of electronic music” Paul Oakenfold teams up with producer/singer ZHU for a special new release “I’m Into It.” With arpeggiating synths and a pumping beat, this track is the perfect vibe for a long run or late night chilling.
Where You Been Hiding – Sinead Harnett
UK/Los Angeles based singer/songwriter Sinead Harnett has released a soulful, vibed out track that feels good in the soul. After successful collabs with house producer Sonny Fodera and her impressive 2021 album Ready is Always Too Late, Sinead has established herself as a strong voice in the music world.
Devoted – Martin Ikin (ft. Byron Stingily)
DJ/producer Martin Ikin has been pumping out dancefloor ready dance tracks since 1991 and he still manages to stay relevant all these years later. His new track “Devoted,” blends hopeful piano cords into a tech house banger with the assistance of singer Byron Stingily.
Satellite – Thundercat (ft. Louis Cole & Genevieve Artadi)
LA bass playing superhero, Thundercat, has grown into one of the top dogs in modern music. His newest song “Satellite,” was made for the incredible Issa Rae led show Insecure‘s season 5. The vibes on this track are immaculate and if you’ve been watching the most recent season, it should already be a bit familiar.
Album Sunsetter – LEISURE
One of our favorite modern bands, LEISURE, has released their brand new album featuring many songs that we already know and love. The 5-piece band has a knack for crafting laid back tracks that are perfect for relaxing or driving around. Some of our favorite songs from the album include “Be With You,” “Mesmerised,” & “Take You Higher.” We recommend listening through the whole album though!
Album Scenic Drive – Khalid
Superstar singer/songwriter Khalid has blown up since his commercial debut right out of high school. His sound continues to develop over time and his new album Scenic Drive puts his talents on display. With a slew of incredible features, Khalid crafts an awesome new album. Some of our favorite tracks include “Open (ft. Majid Jordan),” “Scenic Drive (ft. Ari Lennox & Smino),” & “Retrograde (ft. 6LACK & Lucky Daye).”
