[New Artist] RAYE – Need Me

RAYE
RAYE.
NEED ME

Before I introduce this artist let me tell you, she is only sixteen but sounds like she is in her twenties and has been writing/singing for quite a while. Truth is, London artist RAYE has been writing and singing music since she was ten years old. Her first release ever ‘Need Me’ has lyrics and feelings far beyond her young years. A seductive voice that entices listeners, RAYE has found a way to mix her strong vocals with the perfect touch of electronic melodies and rhythms. Pretty excited to hear what more this young artist will have in store for us as her career continues to blossom, keep an eye out for her.

Big K.R.I.T.
Cadillactica

Memphis-emcee Big K.R.I.T. takes listeners to the stars and beyond in a old school ride with his new single “Cadillactica”. The single comes fresh off the release of K.R.I.T.’s See Me On Top Vol. 4 release and is yet another chill listen. Mixing a tough, southern-flow with a catchy hook over DJ Dahi-production, this latest release should definitely be in heavy rotation for K.R.I.T. fans.

This tune finds K.R.I.T. jumping on the track with some quick-tongued bars reminiscent of old-school hip-hop. Definitely one that is meant for low-riding or chilling, this single is not necessarily K.R.I.T.’s best but it is certainly worth a listen for what it is. The young rapper even shows off some of his comedic skill on a short-skit towards the tail-end of the song. This is the third release from the upcoming project of the same name and is available for free when fans pre-order the album on iTunes, now.

Elk Road
Hurt No More

The bar for creativity in the electronic music sphere is being raised more and more every day and Elk Road has been doing most of the lifting. Though he isn’t a household name yet, the young Aussie soundscaper is well on his way to becoming one, not only through the superb productions exemplified through his newest release “Hurt No More”, but also through his own imprint Deer Lane. When words cannot describe a song in enough detail, sometimes the second best thing to do is listen however I will try and leave you with some parting thoughts. Before you melt away in this track completely, we want you to try and think of a song you love that sounds even remotely like this. Pretty tricky right? You definitely hear GRIZ and Pretty Lights elements to it, but it’s certainly an Elk Road record. The other thing you will probably notice is that while you can definitely identify this as an Elk Road track, you can’t really put a finger on why. You’ll go through his discography and discover no two of his songs sound alike and in fact what you are identifying as his personal brand is predominantly based on a craftsmanship and dedication to originality that us Yanks simply can’t match. Any genre, any BPM, any vocals; Elk Road will do it better.

Pulse (Benny Benassi Remix)

After having premiered TeamMate’s song, ”Goldmine” in June, we knew it wouldn’t be the last we’d be hearing of them. Now just months later, we’re hearing those engaging vocals, only this time, set to some dance-inducing beats.

Teaming up (pun intended) with Italian trio Daddy’s Pulse, this collaboration recently resulted in an energetic progressive house tune, which released on Ultra Records back in September.

Any time you have incredible vocals on a dance tune, a remix package is soon to follow, and today we’re happy to bring you one of them. Taking on a tune from his countrymen, longtime dance legend Benny Benassi infuses his signature sound into “Pulse,” giving us a something that boasts the same melodic vibe from the original, yet brings in a tech-style house bassline and synth structure.

Benassi always brings up feelings of nostalgia with his tracks, calling back on the many shows we’ve seen of his throughout the years. If you’ve never personally witnessed what one of his sets entails, we highly encourage you to catch one. You won’t be disappointed.
