Emily Litta is a name you absolutely should remember. Based in London, her half-Kiwi/half-Italian heritage had inspired her to travel the world and immerse herself in different musical cultures, culminating in her new material releasing across 2020.
Her latest single ‘Not A Love Song’ is an anti-love song intended to be an “unfiltered fuck you”, as Emily puts it. The record perfectly displays the unique abilities the young singer possesses that distinguish her from the ever-growing crowd. Her delivery grabs you from the outset, it’s hard to find a direct comparison. Taking influence from her love of both urban and jazz subgenres, the resulting tone and delivery of the vocals we as listeners receive is outstanding and endlessly interesting.
Despite this record being only her sixth release, it’s clear that Emily has a strong creative vision behind each of her works.
Kasbo is an exciting Swedish producer whose music fits nicely alongside the likes of ODESZA and Aquilo.
His current release ‘Aldrig Mer’ (translating to ‘No More’ in English) combines organic elements including real instrument recordings and electronic synths, as well as the boundless vocals of rising UK duo TENDER.
Expect Kasbo’s debut album to come out on Foreign Family Collective/Counter Records on 23 March.
Cub Sport‘s new single ‘Good Guys Go’, questions just that – unreciprocated love, unfortunately a common theme in a lot of relationships.
The neon video, directed by Joe Agius is shot in real time with one roaming camera, and tries to capture an intense feeling of loss, inspired by images from fashion magazines and music videos by Michael Jackson, TLC, and Perfume Genius.
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.
