LUNICE-FEATURE

Lunice returns with ‘Can’t Wait To’

lunice

We last heard Montreal producer, Lunice as one-half of TNGHT, a trap-duo formed with Hudson Mohawke. Fresh from smashing speakers around the country, Lunice is going it alone once again with a new single and an album on the way. That single is Can’t Wait To and it’s a skittering, brain-fuck of a track with deep, recurring vocals samples and eery synths. It’s certianly not as in-your-face as TNGHT but like any Lunice production it demands your immediate attention. The song was teased a few days ago in a 30 second video but the full version has now been unveiled. It’s suspected to be the first single from his forthcoming debut album.

Vancington Remixes Shy Girls’ ‘Second Heartbeat’

vancington

Shy Girls‘ track, Second Heartbeat, made waves nine months ago when it first hit our ears. Now it’s back; re-worked by Vancington and still just as pleasing to the ears. Vancington’s offering provides lush synths and a grooving backbeat which accompany the already super-smooth R&B vibe from the original. Glistening chimes and scattered vocals are peppered towards the end of the track, providing a break from the steady beat and giving this remix a distinct, funky flavour.

Hear Angus & Julia Stone’s ‘A Heartbreak’

250b6f688261c5c2a32630a9d789babd-640x360

The heart seems to be a consistent motif for Angus & Julia Stone‘s forthcoming self-titled record. They have just dropped a new song, A Heartbreak with an accompanying video following on from last month’s Heart Beats Slow. A Heartbeat was the first song the pair wrote with the producer of the record, Rick Rubin, and it’s a dark, folk-tinged number that beautifully juxtaposes the sibling’s voices. The video is suitably dark also and was filmed in LA under a flood of multi-coloured lights. The album is out 1 August following the pair’s performance at Splendour in the Grass, the week before.

Cyril Hahn remixes Jessie Ware’s ‘Tough Love’

jessicyrilIf you’re not a lover, slow-groover or sensual mover chances are you might’ve found Jessie Ware‘s new track Tough Love a little slow. Well Canadian producer Cyril Hahn has come to rescue the track for beat-cravers with his beautifully tailored remix of Tough Love. He keeps Ware’s heighty vocal intact, instead choosing to pump it along with a deep-house base-line and send it straight to the clubs. Jessie Ware and deep house music go together like Milk and Milo so it’s great to see Hahn give Tough Love the remix treatment. He’s already worked his magic on Ware once before with Sweet Talk so it should be no surprise that this one is brilliant once again.

the interns were enamoured with How To Dress Well (AKA Tom Krell)’s album What is This Heart? at first listen, with it passing our Friday Night Lock-in with flying colours and Repeat Pleasure appearing in our Top 20 of 2014. We’ve also been closely following the visual accompaniments to the tracks and now Tom Krell has released the finale to his love-inspired video trilogy. Watch below for Childhood Faith in Love, following its predecessors, Repeat Pleasure and Face Again.

8 Songs by New Artists Under 21

under21

Following the news of Rafael Nadal’s WImbledon defeat to 19 year-old Australian Nick Kygrios overnight we thought we’d find the best eight tracks right now by artists under 21. Why? Because it seems at the moment, once you’ve reached 21 your life is over. These youngsters are impossibly talented and while these songs will delight they will also make you more unhappy than when Adele hit number one all around the world at the age of 21. Don’t even get us started on Lorde.

XXYYXX- Zygote

XXYYXX is not necessarily a new artist anymore, the American producer has been making releasing beats for over two years, however, he’s still impossibly young. At 18 years of age, XXYYXX has amassed a Soundcloud following of 165,000 and already toured Australia with Laneway Festival. Zygote is his Mary J. Blige-sampling track released today. It’s an unrelenting, tempo-raiser inspired by future RnB. Another notch on XXYYXX’s belt.

Madbliss- Crash

It’s enough that this Californian producer is only 16, however, he’s also been producing beats for three years. Most of us couldn’t even work Garageband by that age let alone produce audible music. Crash is a smooth, laid-back that pumps along in no hurry. It’s such a self-assured effort for a sixteen year-old that shows incredible restraint and a feel for hidden melody.

Thomston- Motley Crue

Being only 16 and from New Zealand, Thomston was always going to draw comparisons to Lorde, however, with his new Argonaut EP he is forging his own identity. Motley Crue is a standout from that EP, and acts as a certain ode to youth. “Drive all night, sleep all day” he sings over a throbbing, dark beat joint by the odd handclap. It’s slightly dissatisfied and derranged like any teenage anthem should be.

Tove Styrke- Even If I’m Loud It Doesn’t Mean I’m Talking To You

So many young artists try to act beyond their years, that’s why it’s so refreshing that Swedish artist Tove Styrke sounds every bit her 21 years. Even If I’m Loud It Doesn’t Mean I’m Talking To You is an obnoxious chant song that sounds sassy, youthful and rhythmic. She barely gets a breather in this three-minute runaway train that gets better with every listen.

K Stewart- Speechless

19 year-old K Stewart was the live vocalist for fellow youngsters Bondax, but has now broken out as a soloist. Her latest track, Speechless, was produced by Karma Kid and featured by Radio 1 presenter Annie Mac. It follows in the path ‘90s throwback RnB, as she runs through her vocal range like Mariah while having the restraint and fragility of Ashanti. There’s a huge future ahead for this Londonder.

Little Simz

Little Simz is a 20 year old rapper from North London who is making a name for herself with her brash, aggressive raps laid upon smooth beats. Devour is off her latest EP E.D.G.E and is produced by acclaimed British producer Jakwob. There’s a certain Azealia Banks flavour to it without the feeling that she’s going to fly off the handle at any second. She’s sounds confident yet organic and totally committed to her craft.

Aleksander- Ultraviolence

Aleksander is an 18 year-old singer/songwriter from Brisbane who’s just released his debut EP, Mah, Jong, Jong! His look and sound channels bold male songwriters like Alex Turner, Jake Bugg and even Johnny Cash. A few weeks back he dropped a cover of Lana Del Rey’s Ultraviolence on his Soundcloud which showcases the very strength of his voice. To have a tone and presence such as his at the age of 18 is baffling.

Darcy Baylis- How Can I Live?

Darcy Baylis is a 19 year old producer from Melbourne who’s already made a name for himself as electronic maestro Namine. He’s now ditched the moniker and is doing it under his own name. How Can I Love? is the most immediately melodic track he’s made yet. It’s underlined by a pulsating beat and peppered with ‘90s keys. It sounds like an anthem in its most minimal and stylistic form.

bauuer

Baauer comes back with a ‘Clang’

bauuerBrooklyn-based Baauer, famous for bringing us the international sensation, Harlem Shake, has returned with a new track, Clang. Although it probably doesn’t have meme-triggering ability like its predecessor, its experimental, Bollywood-inspired qualities are enough to keep you interested. Clang features samples of German artist Buedi Siebert which is discussed in the ‘making of’ sound clip below.
