End Up Like This (Motion Picture Actress Remix)
With a voice like this, it’s no wonder we’re hearing stunning remixes. Australian singer and producer Sterling Silver’s debut single is something to marvel at. The atmospheric vocals lightly caress the groovy disco instrumentals creating something that’s easily danceable, yet equally enjoyable through a set of headphones in bed.
While we love a great dancy disco tune, it’s always nice to have some ambient downtempo to relax to. Remixer Motion Picture Actress has dialed this tune back with some smooth low humming basslines and rapid snare hits. The subtle rolling nature of the tune compliments perfectly with the heavily treated repetitious vocal samples from the original creating a wonderfully melodic beauty that begs you to take a step back and take it all in.

If we’re clinging to the cusp of summer, then Fé’s debut track is the perfect soundscape to accompany the closure.
Don’t expect big crescendos from this London duo. They’ve avoided peaking and troughing as much as they’ve dodged the try-hard vibe. Here lies four minutes of ethereal authenticity: a myriad of instrumental talent masquerading as a modest and quietly stunning pop piece. Demure in it’s execution, the multi-faceted backdrop simmers with muted energy and the track is carried along on a melodic and at times melancholic vocal, featuring a guitar piece Modest Mouse would be proud of. Fé are rumoured to have been creating perfection for some time. Now their atmospheric euphoria has been unveiled, go enjoy it with a residue of sunshine.
Fé may have busked their way around the tube trains, but they’re yet to perform their first show. Check them out in London next month!

The GettUp (As heard on Pete Tong Radio 1 Show)
About two weeks after the unveil of their single, “Super Soaker”, American rockers Kings of Leon release a second track entitled, “Wait for Me” off the brand new album Mechanical Bull (9/24). Although a bit mellower than “Super Soaker”, you’re still sure to recognize and appreciate that familiar down strum pattern of the bass guitar, easing its way into yet another hit track. For those who still favorite their 2008 album, Only by the Night, as I still do, you’ll find the track recollective of a hybrid between the most impressionable numbers, “Revelry” and “17”. So don’t be surprised if you find yourself crooning the chorus off guard, it’s a little bit contagious.
J Cole Power Trip (cover version)
We always love hearing a good cover song, especially when it crosses genres. We love it even more when we get to premiere it, which is just the case today. Brooklyn four piece X Ambassadors (who are working with KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records) made a splash sometime back with their monster single “Unconsolable.” We were instantly hooked with their drum centric sound amplified by their lead singers power charged vocals. This very combination, as attractive as it is, seems to have found it’s way to covering J Cole’s monster summer jam, “Power Trip,” and we just couldn’t be any more pleased.
X Ambassadors’ take is a rhythmically inspired harmony focused one, using the beat and heavy bass to accentuate the lyrics which were already rich with emotion. While it very much conveys their own personal sound and style, it still gives a tip of the hat to the original.
Don’t forget to pick up X Ambassadors new EP, Love Songs Drug Songs, on itunes.
Nothing makes me smile more than a female vocalist with one sassy voice who knows what her sound is and revels in her abilities.
Miss Ivy Levan, please take the center stage, you are the sexy temptress I am talking about.
If you have not heard of this strong voice yet, you will. Levan started her career like many skilled females, singing back-up for other artists. But recently she decided to take the leap and be the star of her show with her recently released EP “Dame”. The single off of her EP is titled “I don’t wanna wake up” and tells the charming story of a girl who had way too much fun the night before and with a man in her bed, does not want to wake up and face the day. We have all been there haven’t we? And Levan does an amazing job capturing how that feels, swear words, bears in her bed and all. Not to mention a fabulous video, this leading lady is just making a scratch on her music bed post and we can’t wait to see what else she has in store.
After you’re done enjoying her video, head over and pick up her EP!
