Premiere: Karen Harding - Say Something (Zac Samuel Remix)

Karen Harding's stellar debut single Say Something had us stuck on repeat with its badass retro house sound and amazing vocals last month. Yeah! We're happy to see that Brighton based producer Zac Samuel turns out a superb nu-disco treatment much like the one he did for Kiesza earlier this year. Awesome piano, infectious bassline and classic drum machine power for days. It's a tight production and really makes us wanna d.a.n.c.e stat! Enjoooy!

Premiere: Annie Lennox - I Put a Spell on You (Screamin' Jay Hawkins Cover)

AMAZING Annie Lennox is back with a brand new album filled to the brim with covers of legendary songs! Hell yeah! Nostalgia is recorded to fit a classic vinyl album standard and will have its premiere on said format as early as September 30th! Other outlets October 27th. Lead single I Put a Spell on You is a cover of Screamin' Jay Hawkins' 1956 utter classic. It's perfect for Annie's emotive and deep voice. Her nuances are crazy and her version is so raw and tempting. While it's hard to match the original's hollering and ghoul shouts without becoming a parody this matches the deep despair and willingness to do anything to control a unfaithful lover. Alsooo, Nina Simone's legendary version is NOT TO BE MISSED. Play all three back to back and enjoooy! Spotify stream if ya need and album trailer if ya fancy (you do)! Thoughts?

Premiere: Lauren Flax Feat. Kim Ann Foxman - Pleasure Principle (Janet Jackson Cover)

Hell yes! Lauren Flax and Kim Ann Foxman takes on Janet Jackson's classic 1987 single The Pleasure Principle from the Control album and infuses with their deep house magical goodness! Too nice! Sigmund Freud's 1920's psychology term set to a contemporary dance beat we fully stand (well, dance) behind. And the powah of JJ naturally! The production is airy and tight plus incredibly addicitive - we're instantly hooked! As a bonus we get a KAF remix that adds an ever deeper groove plus a free download of the bangin' Eli Escobar treatment. Very awesome indeed. Happy weekend!

Stream: Kiesza - No Enemiesz

Amazing Kiesza is on a massive roll right now. Playing summer festivals to rave reviews and hitting #1 in the UK with her debut Hideaway that hit 100 million views on youtube last week. She'll be releasing debut album Sound of a Woman on October 21st and on top of things she's written for Rihanna that has already recorded it for her next album. Very nice! It seems that her Hideaway single was hiding a major gem too. No Enemiesz was originally found as a b-side on the UK promo CD. This one simply has to go on the full length album. It showcases her awesome knack for master melodies and retro 90's club sound plus sounds fresh as all hell. And her oooh aaah's gets joined by an awesome new hook! Enjoooy! Thank you Raphza!

Premiere: BANKS - Drowning (MORLY Remix)

BANKS' debut album Goddess is on constant repeat here since its release last week. We're blown away by the amazing and eclectic sounds to say the least. How amazing to have have quite intricate songs followed up by stripped down material like that. Amazing! One of our absolute favourite BANKS tracks to date is her incredible Drowning. So soothing, heartbreaking and awesome all rolled into one. Fellow newcomer, Minnesota based producer MORLY takes it on and builds on the dark atmosphere. She creates an intense moment with that powerful and slow bassline sprinkled with slow claps, mysterious sounds and twisted vocals and we get humming too! Damn it's good! The usage French horn makes us think of Björk and the jacked up voice is spot on Fever Ray. Amazing names to come to think of! Enjooy the mellow goodness below!
