As Route 94's following continues to grow and with 'My Love' looking all but certain to reach Number 1 on Sunday night, Defected have decided to re-release some of the increasingly popular producer's older material. The Fly 4 Life EP features just 4 tracks, but as a collective demonstrates Route 94's immense capacity for diversity as a producer with elements ranging from House to Techno to R&B to something a little bit deeper presents across the 4 tracks.
As teenage Folk sensation George Ezra gears up for the release of his second EP, he today unveiled 'Coat of Arms' which will act as one of 4 tracks featured on the Cassy O' EP, due out March 16th. There is nothing about George's voice I don't love and something tells me 2014 is going a massive year for him. Great to see a young British musician unafraid to try something different and do so well because of it.
Late last year burgeoning producer Jade Blue teamed up with teenage House produciton duo Frequency in an effort to come up with a collaboration that might get them both noticed. The result was 'Lately', a track quickly snapped up by Black Butter Records and set to be released as the next Deep House installement on the label's hugely diverse catalogue later this month.
After sampling Kanye West's 'Bound 2' and releasing a Drum and Bass bootleg of the track as a free download via their offical website, it seems Sigma have been so impressed by the reception of the track that they've decided to go ahead and release it as an offical single. Absolutely loved this the first time I heard it and haven't been able to get it out of my head since.
As the hype surrounding Meridian Dan's 'German Whip' continues to grow and grow, PMR today unleashed an officlal remix of the track that sees Skepta, Pro Green, Bossman Birdie & Rizzle Kicks all called up to add their own bars to the track. Unsurprisingly, the boys go in. This is jokes.
Javeon hooks up with PMR Records label mate and fellow Bristolian Julio Bashmore on 'Intoxicated' which is the latest track to be unveiled from the Electro R&B crooner's highly anticipated debut album and was last night made Zane Lowe's Hottest Record in the World. Another flawless release courtesy of PMR.
I was lucky enough to catch George Ezra perform in Bristol last night and as his support act he brought along 17-year-old Irish singer-songwriter Soak. I'll be honest and say I hadn't heard of Soak before the gig, which is maybe why her performance left me all the more more impressed. Check out the lead track from her forthcoming debut EP via the player below, something tell me you'll be hearing a lot more of her very soon.
French Express' Jonas Rathsman takes on Duke Dumont's new single 'I Got U' and leaves it nearly unrecognisable. Producers take note, this is how you do a remix. Smashed it.
