Following on from their 'Boiler Room Debuts' introduction late last month, rising stars Icarus have this week shared with the world their next installement of new music as they prepare to release their debut EP via Pete Tong's resurgent FFRR label. Entitled "Gold', the track comes in the form of a low-rolling slice of early 00's inspired tech-house that sees the production outfit test out a more bass-heavy sound than their debut release 'Cassia'. Check it out below and watch out for more info on the full EP, expected soon.
After teasing brief clips on BBC Introducing and Radio 6 Music, fledgling electronic duo Boy Scout have finally arrived fully formed presenting their ambient debut single 'Get Me By', which merges modernity with tradition to create an atmospheric soundscape reminiscent of both elements of folk and low-fi electronica - fans of Aquilo and London Grammar, enjoy.
Coming out on Island Records the label that brought us their 'Human EP' late last year, here is the new one from Lancastrian-duo AQUILO, who are without doubt one of the most exciting acts to breakthrough over the past 12 months. Cannot wait for an album from these guys - doing the North proud.
'Redemption' is the new track from 20-year-old singer/songwriter Samm Henshaw, who recently came onto my radard, and has all the soulful talents and elements to become a real star. Extremely excited about this guy.
Tom Misch is back with a new piece of music, which is taken from his forthcoming 'Beat Tape 2'. Slightly more upbeat that Misch's usual style, but still absolutely golorious from top to bottom - what a talent.
After bringing you the Disciples remix last week, here is Will Clarke's take on Azari & III's 'Reckless (With Your Love)', which is being given a new remix package for 2015. Another serious release from the Bristol-based Will Clarke, who keeps going from strength to strength.
Nothing will ever beat the original, but here is a wonderful take on Stardust's dancefloor classic, which comes courtesy of 18-year-old (makes me sick!) producer Albzzy. One of the summer...
Man like Preditah delivers a storming remix of Skepta's new Grime anthem 'Shutdown', which as ever calls on old-skool UKG flavours, whilst also pushing the boundaries of modern-day production. Shutdown.
