VenessaMichaels & Holly
Real One (Feat. Outlaw The Artist & Effy)

VenessaMichaels is a real one. Holly is a real one. Outlaw The Artist and Effy are both real ones too. Given this information it makes sense they would all come together for a song called “Real One” that has been released on 2090.

“Real One” blends R&B with future to the perfect degree. Each creative contributed their A-game to this. From the vocal duet pairing Effy’s soft, serene performance to Outlaw’s edgy cuts, to the masterfully detailed instrumental, this single has all the pieces in the right place. It’s shot straight up to the top of our playlists and likely will do the same for you. Click that play button and make sure to get a copy of this treat on iTunes.

[Music Video] Close Encounters – Soulacosta

Get ready to get funky, because Close Encounters has a new aural ride you’re going to obsess over like we have. Take a ride on “Soulacosta” and let its wonderful grooves whisk you away from the worries of the week. You deserve a micro-vacation and this is it.

“Soulacosta” kicks things off quickly by getting the funk going right from the start. It has an old-school feel to it, which the group run with in their retro music video. Just as the song is immensely playful, so is its visual counterpart. Under the incredibly upbeat tone of the video is something that isn’t as in your face happy, creating an intriguing juxtaposition. See for yourself and get a copy of the song from Close Encounters’ Bandcamp.

Even if you’re exclusively a hip-hop or dance music fan, you’re going to like this one. It’s a musical black hole that sucks you in no matter what you do. From start to finish its heat, heat and more heat. It never lets up with its power, engaging your ears like few tracks can do. Alexander Lewis enlisted Nick Row to bring his bars to the mix which did not disappoint. Together they made “Clockwise” one of our favorite tracks of 2018 so far.

[Pop] Julie Bergan – Turn On The Lights LP

Ever since our ears first heard the luscious voice of Julie Bergan on her breathtaking records, we knew she had something special. Signed to Warner Music Norway, she’s been on a hot streak releasing singles and captivating her home country and the rest of the world. Instead of keeping with singles, she’s gone and released her debut full length album, Turn On The Lights.

The twelve song project features hits such as “Arigato” and “Blackout” that captivated us when they first hit the web. Her fusion of pop with electronic is something that permeates the album and although pop is making the transition to a more EDM friendly sound, Julie soars above the crowd of noise with her magical, dynamic records. It’s not pop for popularity’s sake; it’s amazing music that just happens to fit the bill. Turn On The Lights is stocked full of incredible tunes without any moments of lackluster listening. Hear for yourself below!

[Hip-Hop] A-Trak & Falcons – Ride For Me feat. Young Thug & 24hrs

It’s been long said that A-Trak and Young Thug have a lot of material ready to fire off. Recently we got a piece of the action by way of their song “Ride For Me” with Falcons and 24hrs. This hip-hop heater was released on Fool’s Gold Records with quick praise from fans and media alike.

“Ride For Me” sees each collaborator work off each other selflessly. Instead of having too many cooks in the kitchen with sounds/styles clashing, these four acts came together as a team to make something particularly dope. “Ride For Me” is currently out on digital platforms, so if you’re looking to add it to your library you may do so.

[Electronic] Egzod & Anna Yvette – My City

Egzod & Anna Yvette
My City [NCS Release]

Two of our favorites, Egzod and Anna Yvette, have come together for “My City” on NCS. This is a MAJOR tune and it’s been released as a free download, but it’s so good you just might have to buy it to support these talents.

“My City” isn’t exactly a one-sound song. It doesn’t fit nice and neat into one genre, but rather it takes influence from things including future bass. The melodic masterpiece is some of the best work from both contributors. Everything was done right, both musicians must have been firing on all cylinders during its creation. Hear for yourself and share it with your friends over the weekend!
