Keaton Henson recorded his debut album, ‘Dear…’, after an emotional break-up, and ‘Small Hands’ certainly shows the pain felt by Henson. His quivering vocals and direct lyrics are heart-rending, and that’s before we even get to the video. Directed by Joseph Mann, who used cute woodland puppets to tell the tale of loss, the simplicity of the video fits with Henson’s lo-fi bedroom recording. Guaranteed to have you reaching for the Kleenex, ‘Small Hands’ is a quiet masterpiece. ‘Dear…’ is out now.

We are loving the latest AC Slater remix of Canadian hip hop kingpin Drake. Brooklyn native AC Slater perfectly balanced the hip hop swagger of the original while switching it up into proper glitch hop form with some gangster synth work. Be sure to grab the download below and look out for AC Slater this festival season. As for Drake, you’all know the name!
Superstar house producers David Guetta and Nicky Romero have teamed up for a brand new single out on Jack Back Records. The melodic styles of both artists blend nicely together on the breakdown and the driving wobbly bass synth lines keep the track moving fast. Even though the track uses just one vocal sample, “Mother-fucking big fat bass” is definitely a good one! You can stream this hot new release below or pick it up on Beatport for your collection.
