Ryan Egan – Finest Hour

Ryan Egan

Ryan Egan

Another cracking track from Ryan Egan. This one is called ‘Finest Hour’, and we are pretty sure this is Ryan’s finest musical hour to date.

While previous releases have seen Egan share production with Luca Buccellati (Tei Shi), ‘Finest Hour’ see’s Egan take on full production duties.

The result a glistening pop track full of 80’s vibes.

Ryan Egan – Between The Pages

Ryan Egan

Ryan Egan

Ryan Egan is a 26 year old NYC based artist, who is also one fourth of The Ugly Club.

Following on from the success of ‘Restoration’ is ‘Between The Pages’, Egan’s second track that he has worked on with producer, Luca Buccellati (Tei Shi).

It definitely has those Tei Shi urban vibes coupled with raw lyrics, further proving how well Egan and Buccellati work together to create a new slant on modern pop/RnB.

The upcoming debut EP ‘Postures’ is set for release in Autumn.

Xan Young – Passion

Xan Young

Xan Young

There is a new kid joining the electro-soul world, and he’s one that we are particularly excited about.

Xan Young, with similarities to Ben Khan, releases his debut track ‘Passion’. It is built on quivering synths and obscure percussion…and the simplicity is beautiful.

We expect his debut record, ‘The Flood’, to be released in August via Astro Nautico.

Sounds like: Ben Khan, Years & Years, Leo Kalyan, Twin Shadow, Jai Paul, JUNGLE, Disclosure, Prince, Blood Orange, Harts, Oyinda, Shy Girls, Harriet

Ben Khan – Zenith

Ben Khan

Ben Khan

A year a go today, we wrote about rising Brit, Ben Khan.

Flash forward one year and hot on the footsteps of Ben’s recent release of ‘1000’, is his latest victory, ‘Zenith’.

A powerful three minute track full of claustrophobic sci-fi blues, wounded guitar squiggles, crunchy synths and a soulful cascading chorus hook.

Ben recently announced his first headline live dates in the UK and Europe with most of the shows quickly selling out. This is one artist in demand.

His new EP follows last years successful and acclaimed debut ‘1992 EP’ which introduced Ben’s inventive brand of swampy electronic R&B and funk, mangled blues soul, and icy hip-hop beats.

Ben Khan – 1000

Ben Khan – 1000

Before we heard Ben Khan‘s new track, ‘1000’, we knew it would be good. And it hasn’t disappointed.

Perfection comes in all shapes and sizes. It’s a sporadic, feel good masterpiece and those vocals. Those. vocals.

Taken from a forthcoming EP of the same name, ‘1000’ will be released on 11 May via Ben’s imprint Blessed Vice and features four brand new tracks.
