Let’s go for some euphoria inducing house music by French producer Kartell. Turn Over is a glistening first single off his upcoming Sapphire EP out on January 6 on Roche. The track samples off of 90’s Avant song Separated. Turn over is a sleek specimen filled with endless, soulful groove and a Disclosure like aesthetic. If that bass line doesn’t make you want to dance, I don’t know what will. For another captivating track by Kartell off the coming EP, check out It’s You below. This one’s just as sexy, but it’s a slow burning, downtempo tune.

French hip hop and electronic producer Stwo is really stirring things up lately with his outstanding remixes. We’ve heard his remix of BASECAMP’s Emmanual and his amazing Syrup (Three 6 Mafia), among other awesome tracks. Today, he’s doing it again with a remix of Norwegian producer Cashmere Cat’s huge tune With Me. I’m insanely fond of the rich and luscious With Me, and Stwo’s distorted, extra choppy and explosive rendition is a welcome and fresh approach.

I have much respect for Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth, who made quite some waves this past year with his debut EP and full length album. For holiday fun and as a thank you offering to his fans, he dropped a mixtape on Soundcloud last week titled RYANPACKv.1. On it is this atmospheric, delicious Lorde remix. Ryan calls it the “Ribs (Let’s Have A Sleepover Version)”. Ribs happens to be one of my favorite tracks off Lorde’s hit debut album Pure Heroine. Lorde’s dark pop and Ryan Hemsworth’s production go together like bread and butter. Or peanut butter and jelly. Or… you know what I mean.

Out of London comes another fresh new band with silken vocals and a debut single that’s intoxicating and addicting. Their name is Jakil, and Look Like Gold is a stunning introduction to the five piece originally from Scotland. It’s a lush, soulful beauty that starts out sounding like many alt pop tunes that have flooded our earholes lately, but wait for the heavenly horns and guitar licks! Jakil is working on their debut album for 2014, and there’s no doubt we’ll be hearing more about them.

Introducing: Lolawolf

December 31, 2013

The internet works in mysterious ways when you’re deeply buried in music obsession. Case in point, I was traversing the music scenery on YouTube over the weekend and I discovered a band named Lolawolf. Come Sunday night, I tweeted something about Brooklyn band Reputante (whom I love), and who favorites the tweet? Lolawolf! The band is a Brooklyn four piece signed to Innit Recordings. They have a self titled debut EP dropping come February 4, 2014, and they count Zoe Kravitz as band member and lead vocalist. Yes, the actress Zoe Kravitz who is the daughter of Lenny Kravitz! She lends her sultry, smoky vocals to some fantastic, haunting, and synthy alt pop tunes. Turns out Lolawolf shares some band members with Reputante, so the tweet favoritism makes a whole lot of sense now. Watch their recent video for Wanna Have Fun below and listen to a couple other stand out electronic pop tracks, including the infectious, elastic What Love Is and the hazy, moodier Drive (Los Angeles).
