FUKC already feels like an in-your-face no-punches-pulled sort of name, and the new project certainly leaves it all on the floor and hits us hard with slinky prowling Time To Kill, a darkwave-inflected alt electro/electro-rock thriller that broods stupendously and flexes some major production muscle. It’s a predator of a track, with stalking beats and electrifying rumbles. New duo FUKC consists of Parisian producer DEVOTED and British vocalist Billionaire, who previously proved to be a match made in heaven on their song together, Santa Fe. They’ve chosen to continue that partnership as FUKC, and we can’t be more pleased with this news. The visceral, lascivious single comes on the heels of FUKC’s debut single last month, My Father’s Son, which you can stream below. You can find both tracks on Apple Music, here.

Last Friday, Seattle electronic duo Odesza released their new album A Moment Apart to endless fanfare. I’m probably one of the few who hasn’t listened to the release in full yet, despite my great excitement for the album. Call it a pet peeve, but I need to give an album a proper first listen and I haven’t received my physical CD copy of A Moment Apart yet, though I’ve been checking the tracking details for my order on the daily. The album should be arriving within the next few days. For now, I’m more than happy to drift into the heavens to this beautiful track off A Moment Apart. Across The Room sees the pair partnering up with gospel, soul, and R&B talent Leon Bridges. It’s certainly one of the most surprising collaborations on the album, but it works so well. Odesza’s effervescent electronica is permeated with lavish strings and a soulful lilt. Come October, Odesza will be playing three whole nights at the Greek in Berkeley with Chet Porter and SOFI TUKKER. I’m greatly looking forward to my first time seeing the duo again since I last caught them in Paris in 2015. If you haven’t ordered A Moment Apart yet, you can do so, here.

Guilty we are of being one of those silly fans who apparently couldn’t pronounce or even type Tove Styrke’s name correctly when she first cast a spell on us over three years ago (and I know many out there still make the same mistake, seeing “Stryke” instead of “Styrke”). I finally realized my egregious error when I caught the Swedish artist at my very first SXSW back in 2015, where she blew me away with her live performance and added fuel to my conviction that she’d be a massive star someday. Well, that day is swiftly approaching. Tove Styrke dropped one of her best and most infectious songs to date earlier this year in the form of Say My Name, and reeling droves of new fans by the day. An excellent remix pack for Say My Name was released last Friday, from which comes this punchy bright remix by Franklin. The spunky, sassy edit gives Say My Name a very Sigrid meets Maggie Rogers kind of feel, but with heavier hitting percussion, dance ready beats, and some island charm. You can check out the rest of the official remixes that just came out on Tove Styrke’s Soundcloud, here.

This one may have been floating about for some days already, but we’re not going to let it slip by us. That would be a travesty. You see, IHM favorite Taylor Wise, the producer from California who never fails to lift our spirits and provide sonic ecstasy with his tracks, has been tapped for an official Grouplove remix. He bathes Grouplove’s Welcome To Your Life in a summery glow with his future tropical makeover. The gloom of our misty morning here in San Francisco is instantaneously lifted.

It’s been over a month since Norwegian producer Jerry Folk made his San Francisco debut at Popscene, but the strength of that magnificent set still resonates strong in the air. An adrenaline rush kicks in and I feel my heart pumping faster just reminiscing about that night and the way Jerry lit up the crowd with his music. Jerry Folk’s fresh new jam Stanley, which features guests Tommellie & WoodzSTHLM, is a vivid melodic, chill wavy masterpiece that transports me back to the thick of that evening. Stanley feels like an epic story, and it tells a tale that feels very familiar. In the midst of its meditative future beats and funky flourishes lie searing memories of your own past, metaphysical photographs stowed away in the heart that bubble to the surface at the beckoning of Jerry Folk’s deeply reflective summery dance jam. It overcomes us with a wave of blissful nostalgia. Stanley can be downloaded for free over at Toneden.

Cantaloupe loving Los Angles indie darling NVDES is the guest vocalist on East Coast producer Pierce Fulton’s new song, which is a welcome surprise considering how much IHM loves NVDES’ whimsical sashaying tunes. There’s definitely a mischievous sparkle to Borrowed Lives that befits NVDES’ presence. The electro swinging, folksy playful tune is a blissful return for Pierce Fulton, who I’m glad has recovered from his prior accident that left him hospitalized with some major injuries. His handiwork carries some Empire Of The Sun rhythmic charm this time around. Borrowed Lives is the title track from Pierce’s new EP, out this Friday, July 22nd. Pre-order the four track EP from iTunes.

Exciting new Mind Of A Genius duo THEY., who pushed the boundaries of hip hop and alternative on their 3 track debut late last year, goes regal and cinematic on an electronic remix by GENER8ION, the French producer some might recognize as Surkin. In the past, we’ve witnessed the sort of overwhelming electro grandeur and felt the colossal impact that comes from GENER8ION’s production prowess. He infuses THEY.’s Motley Crue with that epic level of robust theatrics. Get buried under the remix’s potent synths and THEY.’s raw, emotive vocals. Purchase the striking edit on iTunes.
