Do What I Want – Kid Cudi
Following up on the first look trailer for his new Netflix TV show, Kid Cudi has released a new single to go along with it. On his new track, “Do What I Want,” which is also the soundtrack to the first look, Cudi lays down his classic vocals, dark but fun beats, and his always iconic humming. We don’t know if we’re more excited for the show or the soundtrack, but either way we should be getting some amazing new music from the legendary artist over the coming months.
What’s Been On Your Mind? – Surfaces
Texas based duo, Surfaces, has been on a tear lately making some absolutely awesome indie rock songs that always have a nice groove. After one of our favorite recent releases “I Can’t Help But Feel,” we were super excited to receive another single from the budding group. Their new song has a light, breezy feel that’s perfect for a summer day bike ride.
Cash In Cash Out – Pharrell Williams, 21 Savage, & Tyler, The Creator
By this point we all know the power of Pharrell Williams and the fact that everything he touches (for the most part) turns to gold. When you add on two rap powerhouses in 21 Savage & Tyler, The Creator, you know you’re going to have a good song. On “Cash In Cash Out,” the three massive artists combine their talents to put together a song that will definitely be played out all summer long.
No Love, No Life – Redondo & Elliot Fitch
After Redondo’s funky tune “Play With You,” which we featured a few months ago, he is back with a new groovy track with Elliot Fitch. Their new song “No Love, No Life,” features a classic R&B feeling vocal along with the two funk house artists incredible production and beats. This track is perfect for your next summertime dance party.
Grrrls – Lizzo
Lizzo is one of the most beloved artists in the pop game right now, with endless chart-topping releases and millions of loyal followers. “Grrrls” is a total vibe, preaching sass and confidence. After her release of “About Damn Time” and now “Grrrls,” Lizzo is on a roll!
Do You Remember (Red Axes Remix) – Nenor, Obas Nenor, Jenny Penkin
floating – Miloe
Blending indie pop and rumba folk, Miloe has a really cool vibe that ranges from indie tunes made to dance to to vocal-forward tracks that inspire nostalgia and emotion. “floating” is a light-hearted easy listen with some moving drums and airy summer vibes. If you liked this one, check out some of Miloe’s other popular stuff and you’ll be hooked!
Up Down Jumper – Boris Brejcha
Boris Brejcha is king of deep and minimal techno, always keeping things dark, melodic, and interesting. “Up Down Jumper” fits the mold of what Brejcha is most known for, with a continuously punching beat and all of the dark feels you could ask for without being too hard and in-your-face. Keep an eye out for his releases and especially his live sets, where he plays exclusively his own music!
We Will F**k You Up (Gerd Janson Remix) – Crazy P
World renowned DJ and producer Gerd Janson has been taking the dance music world by a storm these past 5 years. So it is no surprise that British electronic funk duo Crazy P, wanted a Gerd Janson remix to their already stellar song. This remix has almost every element of a classic new wave 80’s disco song with a slight modern touch which is why we love it so much.
Body Control – Dam Swindle
The Dutch duo is back with another hot track that has the elements of deep house, disco and techno. We love Dam Swindle’s ever so smooth style that is fluid with their sound. This song title is self explanatory, the is something In the rhythm that won’t be able to resist. Body control is apart of an EP that has a chilled out remix of their popular release “The Break Up” by Emma Jean Thackery.
Album V I N C E N T – FKJ
Paris-based artist, French Kiwi Juice aka FKJ, continues to blow us away with his jazz stylings, unique sound, and dream like musical abilities. On his new album, V I N C E N T, FKJ continues to put his skills on display with his trippy vocals, intriguing beats, and vibed out synths/keys. This album brings a slew of awesome features as well, and some of our favorite tracks are “Let’s Live,” “Can’t Stop (ft. Little Dragon),” & “Way Out.”
Album Gold Rush Kid – George Ezra
We’ve been following indie rock artist, George Ezra, since his breakout album Wanted on Voyage back in 2014. With his low, bass-y voice and knack for catchy tunes, George Ezra has carved out a sound that is unique to him. His new album, Gold Rush Kid, shows that he is still as good as he ever was. Some of our favorite tracks include “Dance All Over Me,” “Anyone For You (Tiger Lily),” & “Manila.”
Album In Our Sweet Time – Vance Joy
In a similar vein to George Ezra above, we have also received a brand new album from another indie rock star, Vance Joy. Although some may just know him by his 2014 song “Riptide,” Vance Joy has put out a ton of tracks that are absolutely beautiful and in his specific sound. His new album, In Our Own Sweet Time, is another showing of his talent as an artist to bring a sound that feels genuine and real. Some of our favorite songs from it are “Missing Piece,” “Catalonia,” & “Boardwalk.”
Deluxe Album Ctrl (Deluxe) – SZA
We normally don’t fully feature Deluxe albums on our blog, but 1) its SZA, & 2) Ctrl (Deluxe) features 7 (!!!) unreleased songs that are as good as any others. Queen SZA knows the way to our hearts and souls, and we couldn’t be happier to be receiving this new music. Some of our favorite new releases are “2AM,” “Percolator,” & “Tread Carefully,” but definitely check all of them out!
