Mina Rose may only have a couple of songs out and about on her Soundcloud since her debut two months ago, but this Londoner is quickly turning ears and drumming up buzz with her dub heavy, trip hop clattering pop bewitchment. Second single Kingdom is a moody brooder and droopy haunter, but it’s also elegantly sophisticated and percussive entrancing, like FKA Twigs’ atmospherics crossed with Ibeyi and JAIN. Its late night smoky groove and ghostly dissonance create a sense of mystique and spin a web of sensuous entrapment to which we’re inescapably drawn. You can stream debut single Lemons and Limes below and partake in its ska/reggae inspired snazzy slink.

By now, all of you should be familiar with the fact that I have a soft spot for edgy bold electronic pop. You could say I was instantaneously hooked when I heard NAATIONS earlier today. The new Australian duo is a collaboration between Van She’s Nicky Night Time and singer songwriter Nat Dunn, who has worked with the likes of Tkay Maidza, Alex Winston, and Bearson, just to name a few. NAATIONS makes a snappy popping, spunky puckered, dancehall booming debut on Kingdom, a must for fans of M.I.A., Elliphant, and MØ. To say I’m excited about this duo after hearing their fierce debut is most certainly a gross understatement. It’s reported that NAATIONS is sitting on a full album worth of material already, including a bevy of collaborations. I can’t wait to hear all of it.

Dawn Richard, or D∆WN, is building an impressive solo career post-Danity Kane. Her dark electronic pop and R&B is bold, polished, and arresting. New song Honest is a testament to her rising star, an intensely emotional inferno brilliantly produced by venerated producer and Fade To Mind founder Kingdom. The spaciously bustling, beats shuffling aria is out now on said label, and available for purchase from iTunes.

After a far too long Kelela drought, I’m elated to discover that alt R&B artist from Los Angeles is back with a new one! Newly revealed off Kelela’s forthcoming Hallucinogen EP is a glimmering minimalist electronic jam named Rewind, which she co-produced herself alongside Kingdom and Nugget. It’s a gossamer garage and sensual R&B track with crisply snapping beats and some dreamily fluid downtempo moments. Hallucinogen will be out October 9th via Cherry Coffee / Warp Records.

Second CHVRCHES related share of the day, but this Kingdom Remix of the Scottish electropop group’s anthem Recover is a deliciously ominous and minimalist version. It’s a quirky rendition of a much loved and often remixed tune, done for the Recover EP coming out on March 10. Who doesn’t love another good new angle on the tune, off one of last year’s best albums Bones Of What You Believe?

Swedish musician Mapei killed it with her return to the scene. Don’t Wait garnered so much attention and buzz. It easily accrued some of the most notes per post in a long time on I Heart Moosiq. It’s a worthy, complex pop song filled with sparse percussion, hypnotic effects, and Mapei’s incredible vocals. Los Angeles producer Kingdom has remixed the magical tune, creating a more spacious and echoing version that still retains some of the sorrow of the original. It’s a welcome, smooth rendition to the beautiful, enchanting song, which we must listen to again below, of course.
