Marie Davidson & L’Oeil Nu

Renegade Breakdown

This is an oily tune. A slippery song from Marie Davidson and friends & L’Œil Nu a trio with Marie, Pierre Guerineau and Asaël R. Robitaille (Essaie Pas), ‘Renegade Breakdown’ takes inspiration from funky space-disco of the ’80s. Superb bicep-pumping dance music that inspired a Disco Rock playlist on Patreon.

Logic1000

Perfume

7.

Pillow Queens

Holy Show

As if you needed another reason to get excited for the debut PQs album on September 25th. ‘Holy Show’ is a beaut and real strong album highlight material.

 “Holy Show is a song that relays the feeling of regret and insecurity about past words spoken and actions taken, even when they’re ultimately meaningless. The song tries to articulate the heavy burden of being the only person who is concerned about the minute details of how you present yourself to the world.”

‘Shmelly’ is a fine example of why the Dubliner is one of our finest MCs, not bowing to the zeitgeist and running in his own lane.

17.

Keedron Bryant

I Just Wanna Live (feat. Andra Day, Lucky Daye and IDK)

Keedron Bryant is a 12-year-old, who posted a video of him singing a song written by his mother, on Instagram the day after the killing of George Floyd. The song has now been re-recorded with a full studio version produced by Dem Jointz and it’s a beautiful cathartic song for the Black Lives Matter movement.
