April Towers – Takes One To Know One

April Towers

This is one of our favourite bands. Nottingham-based April Towers return with a rebellious new number called ‘Takes One To Know One’.

Once again, the duo have cleverly blended new wave sounds with bold, modern electronica.

Expect their debut album ‘Certified Freaky’ (co-produced by Ben Pearce) to be released early next year.

MATTIS – Loverboy

MATTIS

Copenhagen-based superstar in the making, MATTIS, shares his stunning debut, ‘Loverboy’.

This self confessed “viking soul” uses somewhat minimalistic production, relying heavily on his vocals (think James Blake or Sampha), but ‘Loverboy’ also tells an emotive story, driven from a dark place that MATTIS found himself in three years ago, having lost his apartment following a break up, and generally feeling like a lone wolf away from the pack.

​The single is out via Sony Music in Scandinavia and Tigerspring/The Orchard elsewhere.

Sounds like: Rationale, Ben Pearce, James Blake, Sampha

Laurel – Blue Blood

Laurel

Laurel is a 21 year old from London who writes tracks about lust and love. She already has an impressive backlog of songs just waiting to be released to the public.

Following on from a killer track with Shadow Child and Ben Pearce is Laurel’s new single ‘Blue Blood’; a simple, yet devastatingly powerful vocal melodies shimmer above string-infused orchestral instrumentation, with a huge backdrop of thumping drums.

Sounds like: Soft as Snow, Broods, Tove Lo, Lorde, Lana Del Rey

Le Youth – Feel Your Love (Feat. Javeon) (RAC remix)

Le Youth - Feel Your Love Feat. Javeon (RAC remix)

Le Youth – Feel Your Love Feat. Javeon (RAC remix)

Le Youth is back, this time with Javeon in tow and complete with a remix courtesy of RAC.

Javeon’s voice remains intact on ‘Feel Your Love’, but RAC breathes some summertime vibes into what is already a sterdy 90’s inspired R&B based track by the L.A. producer.

We were initially concerned that Le Youth may have pigeoned himself into a genre that will soon pass in popularity, but having watched him play last week we are certain that the talented producer is here to stay.

Pre order the original on iTunes.

Sounds like: Javeon, RAC, Disclosure, Lane 8, Ben Pearce, Ben Khan, Duke Dumont, Foxes

Le Youth – Dance With Me (feat. Dominique Young Unique)

Le Youth

Le Youth

Le Youth (aka Wes James or ‘The Youth’ if you are in France) is the uber cool remixer of the moment.

Growing up in Ohio during the US R&B and UK garage peak of the 90’s (and later moving to L.A.), there are clear cross-border influences in Le Youth’s music. To date, remixes under his belt include those of Sam Smith and Disclosure.

His latest tropitronica triumph is ‘Dance With Me’ featuring Dominique Young Unique whereby Le Youth samples TLC’s ‘No Scrubs’. Check out the cheeky vid below:

It is undoubtedly clear that Le Youth does it all for the absolute love of music, which makes him a pretty loveable guy. Oh yea son we’re talking to you.

He has just finished his UK tour, but we are sure he’ll be back in no time.

Purchase on iTunes via Sign Of The Times here.
