Zero 7 is one of my favourite ambient/electro artists, just easy listening and sultry. We get a new rendition featuring  José González who adds his unique vocals. The song is magnificent and paces itself adding more and more, as if the song grows, and you are there to witness every second.

Finding those mysterious new artists is always an amazing feeling, Pooltheory is just that – a mystery.

We know the artist(s) is from Los Angeles, but other than that, all we know is Pooltheory knows how to make superb dream-pop.

Take a chill pill with this one, and hold your breath for some more info on the artist.

Drake – Just Hold On We’re Going Home (LUCA LUSH Remix ft. Kim Vallido)

I went through a stint where I enjoyed Drake a lot, too much, but that phase quickly fell when everyone and their grandmother played his music. Lately I’ve found myself appreciating covers of his music, specifically Hold On We’re Going Home. Nearly anyone can put their twist on the song, showing not only that the original is transferable through genres, but also that it is a well written song. Two years later artists are still taking a stab at their own version. Luca Lush not only took a stab, they beat the original to a pulp, with some on point vocals from Kim Vallido, and some perfect bass, and synths.

 

More covers? why not, ASTR, We Are Twin, Holy Ghost!, and Wild Cub. All of which are superb, bringing their own style and pazzazz to the already iconic song.

Bad Wave – Look Out

Straight from the West Coast, Bad Wave released what seems like their first song, and damn is it going to be a summer hit. The electro-pop tune has some hints of Holy Ghost! and some very familiar vocals that I can’t put my finger on. Honestly, it doesn’t matter because Bad Wave just may be my summer anthem.

 

Miami Horror – Love Like Mine feat. Cleopold

LLM-FINAL-608x608

 

Miami Horror announces the release of a brand new album with this funk instilled single Love Like Mine. It’s been almost a year since we’ve heard from the group last, and it’s good to hear they are sticking with their summer-disco style, but putting some of that modern flare we hear and love from so many other modern funk artists.

 

 

Sailors – Uptown Funk (Sailors Remix)

Sailors add their special touch to Mark Ronson’s hit Uptown Funk, ft. Bruno Mars. As you guessed it Sailors made Uptown Funk stomach-able, after hearing it a billion times on the radio, it’s almost unrecognizable from the original. That my friends, is why Sailors special touch makes them so fantastic!
