George Fitzgerald – Burns
London-based dance producer George Fitzgerald leaves a mark with this layered ambiance-driven track ‘Burns’ which started off as a studio experiment and morphed into its own thing over time. It’s a slow-burner but it really takes off after a few listens.
N*E*R*D & Rihanna – Lemon
Pharrell ditches his run of happy-go-lucky solo material for a return to the NERD sound that made his name as a producer (along with the other two members Chad Hugo and Shay Haley). Here they team up with Rihanna with trademark NERD boom bap beats and tight production but it’s Rihanna who owns the track, rapping like the boss she is.
Jens Kuross – Only The Lonely
Idaho-born musician Jens Kuross explores a more electronic sound with his new track ‘Only The Lonely’. He has the ability to meld electronic textures with a traditional torch-burning singer-songwriter style.
Overcoats – I Don’t Believe In Us
New Yorkers Hana Elion and JJ Mitchell’s new song ‘I Don’t Believe In Us’ shows off the duo’s natural blend in their typical vintage folk and modern pop sounding fashion. Overcoats released their debut album Young earlier this year.
Charlotte Gainsbourg – Deadly Valentine (Soulwax remix)
Baxter Dury – Miami (Parrot and Cocker Too remix)

Henry Green – Stay Here
22-year-old Bristol based producer Henry Green‘s new track shows off his soft emotion-evoking vocals while giving an underlining Bon Iver tone to the sound on the track.

Krief – Ordinary Lies
Montreal singer-songwriter Krief’s new song ‘Ordinary Lies’, which has just come out via Fierce Panda Records conjurs a gentle lullaby sound that keeps you tuned in throughout.
