Another thrilling song has surfaced from Australia’s sensational R&B threesome MOVEMENT. Ivory is everything you’d hope from them and more. A scattered dream put together like a grandiose puzzle in the dark of the night, with the slowly increasing disco beat laying behind those amorously male vocals and the injected piano melodies, piecing this way together one of the most exciting songs of the year thus far! 

MOVEMENT EP is out on May 5th via Modular People and you can place your pre-orders over here.

Mizan - Anxious

Better late than never! Anyone who first said this, was a freakin’ genius! New York based artist Mizan felt revolutionary from listen number one. Anxious is a darkened R&B little masterpiece that drags you in a world where the groove blackens and still sparkles through dazzlingly effects. And what groove there is! Mizan's rich, blinding voice carries the vagrant experience of a street walker while the sonic carpet that wraps her spellbinding vocals has this Quadron meets Rhye (i know that Robin Hannibal evolves in both!) velvet-ish yet urban emotions of warm solitude! Stream it above, watch while capturing the essence in the video below and click here to purchase her debut EP, Dark Blue.

A shiny piece of subterranean tune, so well produced and placed on the floor that will get you moving!!!

Mattheu - Sanguine

Impressive debut release by Manhattan based electronic soul artist Mattheu. In Sanguine Mattheu moves with grace and beauty in the same paths that Disclosure, Rhye and James Blake have once walked. With an undoubtedly souful tone in his voice and a sensual R&B-ish production flourishing in a late night sexual mood, Sanguine proves that the N.Y vocalist/producer knows the game of seduction between the keys of his magical tunes and fairly demands to learn his name!

Virgin EP will drop anytime soon.

Goldbloc - Runaway

Producer Goldenhaus and vocalist Soleil make an irresistible match as Goldbloc under these rainy soulful beat drops. On Runaway he paves a hip hop attended and soul bouncy carpet of extremely addicted sounds while she dives into a Beth Orton reminiscent vocal labyrinth of melancholy that pulls you in with no chance of getting out! A crying groove of crystalized soulful pop to get you through the holidays!

Saes - Ether

Los Angeles via Orlando boy/girl duo Saes hooked my heart and soul with their new song Ether. j and m obviously know what they’re doing. Their minimalistic approach in pop music carries a late night vibe and walks through paves of reverbed r&b, deconstructed electronic pop and soulful tropical jams reminiscent to xx's sound but way more groovier! Ether is a song that many well known bands would kill for to write but lack of creatvity don’t let them  to do so! Play it on repeat and keep your eyes open ‘cause 2014 could be their year!

Noble Youth - Nothing

Noble Youth's music has a familiar feeling… deconstructed! It's pop music separated in little pieces but geniusly puzzled under the unique orchestration of this young (based in the states) producer's clever eye. Nothing is an ambitious effort of James Blake's minimal autotuned black soul and Beach House's calmed folk power flying in grey skies, creating a sense of wonder and surprise from note one! It's a marriage that walks in unexpected paths but carries so much passion and brains that leaves you speachless!!!

Promise Ring EP is available for downoad now on Noble Youth's bandcamp page.
