Jai Paul, the elusive genius behind last year’s smash ‘BTSTU’, returns from the the shadows with a demo of ‘Jasmine’, the first new material we’ve heard from the UK singer-songwriter in nearly a year. There are no further release details yet but here’s to hoping that he doesn’t keep us waiting so long for another offering of soulful, warped pop.

Vancouver’s Teen Daze has been a big hit in the blogosphere for a while now- I myself first wrote about his track “Brooklyn Sunburn” earlier this year and, with constant activity surrounding his name, I think this will continue to be a big year for the up and coming producer. With his first full length All of Us, Together scheduled for release on May 8th, Teen Daze has been on tour to gain traction and begin steamrolling the hype. His latest release “Fantasy” fits in with the synthetic/sincere breed of electro that we are supposed to expect from the new album- but is only available on a tour EP at shows.
Teen Daze- Fantasy
Producer Jimmy Tamborello, better known as Dntel, has a special place in The Music Ninja’s heart. His exquisitely organic experiments are able to break barriers that extend through the very genre he pioneered. Glitch-rich and completely sporadic, the one half genius of Postal Service creates sounds that can be easily digested by non-experimental listeners. Dntel is planning to release a new album called Aimless, and we literally cannot wait any second longer to listen to it. Aimless features contributions from people like Baths and Nite Jewel.
Foreign Beggars have been at it since 1996 and have shown no signs of stopping. The talented British hip/hop/grime/dubestep group based in London have brought us one of the most infectious beats in 2012 with the release of their forthcoming album “The Uprising” and their new single ‘Palm Of My Hand’. With an array of electronic and equally minimalistic percussive instrumentation, the Kid Kanevil produced track delivers a complete domination of rhythm.
“Palm of My Hand” is the first single from forthcoming album, The Uprising, out on Mau5trap March 30th.

Finnish electro-pop duo, Zebra & Snake’s new single ‘Money In Heaven’ laces dreamy washes of synths with pure pop melodies to create a genuinely inventive and engaging, if slightly crazy single. Check out the striking video above and look out for their forthcoming debut album ‘Healing Music’, which is slated for a May 14th release.
Electro artist Com Truise’s latest effort, ‘Terminal’, is a delirious retro gem of a track, with bleeps and synth abound. However, its video is more than an accompaniment – it’s a triumph. Featuring binary, ear-wateringly bright colours, and some kickass graphics, ‘Terminal’ is 80s throwback heaven.
It is surprising how two different styles of music can come together so perfectly. On one hand we have English indie pop band Florence & The Machine, consisting of lead singer Florence Welch whose powerful vocals still remain delicate throughout each and every song. And then you have Clams Casino, a pioneer in a hip/hop subgenre mashed with electronica and experimental sounds providing a new style between hip/hop and chillwave.
The brilliance comes with Clams Casino producing a remix of ‘Never Let Me Go’, resulting into a much more emotional and surreal experience. Hazy instrumentation as the vocals from Florence pierce through the noise providing a satisfying clarity.
That remix will appear on a limited white-vinyl “Never Let Me Go” 12″, out 4/9 on the Vinyl Factory.
