I’m obviously one of those people who loves sharing the wealth when I find good music, but if I were a music head who liked to keep everything to myself so I could gloat over being the only one in-the-know, it’s very likely I’d want to keep Secrets a secret. The song comes from young Dim Mak signed California producer Max Styler, and its wonky warbling energy is more than contagious. Funky electronica and whizzing bass pair up with breathy ravishing vocals from a seductive chanteuse named CXLOE for an R&B infused, bold smoldering electronic experience. Max says of his song: "Chloe and I worked on Secrets earlier in the year when she came over again from Australia to do some more writing sessions. We instantly freaked out over the track once it was done and couldn’t wait to get it out. Secrets is a little different than my previous releases but it’s flow and vibe still resonates with my sound. Chloe and I both are super exciting for you to hear Secrets!“ Stream/download Secrets via alternate outlets, here.

I’ve been going to Live 105′s BFD Festival nearly every year for at least a decade, but my excitement never wanes for the summer event. In fact, I’m crazy excited for this year’s iteration on June 10th, and I’m grateful I’ll finally get to see one of my favorite electro R&B and soul duos, Opia, play the Subsonic Tent that fateful Saturday. It’s no secret I’ve been a big fan of the pair’s silky blazing tunes this past year. As it so happens, Opia’s new single is named Secrets, and it features fellow Los Angeles based singer songwriter Sam Fischer on dashing guest vocals. Secrets is like an intimate suitor who knows all your deepest desires and darkest fears. Secrets feels like home, a warm sultry, opulent rippling future bass meets R&B soul embrace. The sumptuous swooner is gonna be a real treat to hear live. We’ll see if Opia drops Secrets at BFD!

Mija’s debut original is Tegan and Sara sampling heaven. The Los Angeles based DJ and producer took snippets of one of my favorite recent Tegan and Sara tunes, Boyfriend, and utilized it in her staccato jabbing, pitchy electrifying drum and bass masterpiece Secrets last month. As expected, some superb remix treatments are arising from the banger. And who else but Ohio’s Crankdat would amplify the soundwaves on the track with a brain jogging remix? Get ready for a jolting cacophony of trap, bass, and dubstep as the producer cranks up the energy with a hard hitting, cosmic jouncing edit. This dramatic thrashing thrill ride is a free download, here

If you haven’t heard Mija’s first solo original Secrets yet, prepare to cry tears of pure joy, particularly if you’re also a fan of Canadian twins Tegan and Sara as I am. The Los Angeles based DJ and producer rouses our spirits with staccato jabbing synths and high pitched samples of Tegan and Sara’s infectious song Boyfriend on the effervescent percolating masterpiece before heavy sawing, chunky jostling drum and bass dives in to send us on an atmospheric spiraling joyride. Secrets is a free download on Soundcloud, and it’s available now on all major streaming services, too.

Sweden’s Janice first appeared a month ago with her fleecy R&B pop and silken soul on debut song Don’t Need To. She delivers more of the same on ambrosial follow up single, Secrets. She regales us with her flawless voice on the elegantly and crisply cascading ballad which nearly ventures into dance territory with its finespun beats and uptempo cadence. Janice will be releasing her debut EP this fall.

Radical Face just one of so many musical projects Ben Cooper is involved in, but this one is a solo venture in the midst of releasing a concept trilogy entitled The Family Tree. The trio of releases tell the story of a 19th century family who have supernatural abilities, ranging from seeing spirits to bringing the dead back to life. The final part of that series, The Leaves, is due to be released on March 25th. From The Leaves comes a gorgeous indie folk song named Secrets (Cellar Door). The Florida based singer songwriter has my heart in the palm of his hand with the tune, a soft and gentle, yet lush and luminous beauty. Ben Cooper draws us into a wondrous world of fantasy steeped in familiar, age old human emotions. Secrets (Cellar Door) is available now on iTunes. Head to Radical Face’s Soundcloud  to stream the prior parts of his The Family Tree trilogy.

Jr. Hi’s tremendous The Weeknd featuring gem Secrets gets a sumptuous, minimalist remix by producer GXNXVS. It’s a sexy and beautiful follow up to GXNXVS’ last track, a spacious, melting remix of Basecamp’s Shudder (who I just recently caught live, and was absolutely terrific, by the way).

New York indie pop duo Jack + Eliza dropped a cute lo-fi video for their acoustic tune Secrets today. Everytime I listen to the song, I’m charmed by its sun drenched sweetness. It reminds me a bit of some of Best Coast’s early tunes and their low budget videos of the early days, shot on surfer paradise beaches. The duo is working on their album No Wonders, out this summer on Yebo Music.
