Production newcomer HOLYWATER was once a photographer and fashion curator. Let’s just say that we’re infinitely glad that she’s chosen to take the DJ/producer route now that debut single Hush has arrived. HOLYWATER, who also runs the creative collective Virgin Gold Cult, unites with Cruel Youth (aka Teddy Sinclair or Natalia Kills) on her first electronic anthem. Cruel Youth’s whiskey soaked voice is always a treat in my books, and it makes a fine pairing with HOLYWATER’s frisky spirited future bass to create a sprightly teasing, airy flickering future pop concoction reminiscent of Louis The Child and Whethan. You can also stream Hush via Spotify, here, while we await further treats from this exciting new talent.

I’m thoroughly enraptured by the high voltage treatment this producer has given Cruel Youth’s Alexis Texas. In fact, I’m thoroughly enraptured by everything I’ve hitherto encountered from Darth & Vader after falling in love with that taut gripping remix. The Brazilian producer turns Cruel Youth’s Alexis Texas into a tense jouncing Brazilian bass, dark smoldering deep house, & sharply serrated future house chimeric beast. It’s just the Monday morning spritz of adrenaline pumping, serotonin releasing dance music I need. The original comes off of Cruel Youth’s excellent 2016 EP, +30mg, a bewitching sonic affair if there ever was one, with Teddy Sinclair’s smoky exquisite vocals on full display. For more of Darth & Vader’s electrifying sonic stimulation, check out his remix of Nirvana classic Come As You Are below. And for a dose of gratifying originality, stream Darth & Vader’s collaboration with Vincce & Luo below that. Revel in Kalinda’s visceral fusion of deep house, acid techno, Brazilian house, and future house.

Cruel Youth, the spellbinding new project created by Teddy Sinclair aka Natalia Kills alongside her husband, artist & producer Willy Moon, just unleashed a stupendous debut EP entitled +30mg earlier this month. Though I must confess to having fallen for each and every one of the duo’s songs this year, I still count Diamond Days and Mr. Watson my absolute favorites. Today, we get to revisit Diamond Days thanks to the arrival of a film noir styled, violet hued music video. I fall in love with Diamond Days’ retro crackling 60′s soulfulness and its Lana Del Rey and Amy Winehouse like brandy wined vocals all over again as I’m drawn into the video’s captivating visuals. Cruel Youth’s Diamond Days is like a memoir dedicated to the glamorous golden days of vintage Hollywood. I find myself overwhelmed by nostalgia. Listen to Cruel Youth’s 30mg debut EP in full on Soundcloud and purchase from iTunes.

Hatefuck seems a very angry title for a song, and I wouldn’t have been surprised to encounter irate scowling, aggro raging music upon hitting the play button. But I went into it knowing the song comes from Cruel Youth, the soulful pop project formed by Natalia Kills or Teddy Sinclair and her husband, artist/producer Willy Moon. This Hatefuck, despite biting lyrics much anguished and distressed, is a bittersweet melter. Cruel Youth once again evokes Lana Del Rey and Amy Winehouse with their brandy wined, husky deep vocals and their retro crackling 60′s pop charm. At times, I nearly forget I’m not listening to Hatefuck off of an old record player. Hatefuck will be on Cruel Youth’s debut EP, +30mg, out September 16th. The single can be purchased now from iTunes.

When I saw that a music video had been released for Cruel Youth’s Mr. Watson, I knew I had to jump on it, quick. I promptly shared the song over four months ago when it first surfaced too, and it’s still as bewitching as it was then, if not even more so. Mr. Watson is Cruel Youth’s debut single, but Cruel Youth is not new to the scene at all. The project was created by Natalia Kills aka Teddy Sinclair, and the trio dishes out some absolutely charming retro soul and vintage pop that evokes the likes of Amy Winehouse, The Ronettes, Cults, and Lana Del Rey. The carnival setting of Mr. Watson’s glamorous dream like video offers visual dazzlement and bold colors that go hand in hand with the gilded allure of Mr. Watson. The single can be purchased now from iTunes.

Natalia Kills’ latest project Cruel Youth debuted a few months ago to much praise when they revealed a bewitching retro soul pop single named Mr. Watson. The song now gets the BKAYE treatment on a majestic trap remix. The now Menlo Park, California (hello, neighbor!) based producer ramps up the energy on the track, giving it pounding beats, slicing chops, and a future grittiness that goes hand in hand with the brandy wine vocals of the original. The fiery sass level of this spellbinding remix is through the roof. BKAYE’s robust remix is a free download, here.
