Majid Jordan – Her (Stwo Edit)

French producer Stwo's remix of Majid Jordan's "Her", is probably better than the original. Majid Jordan's version sounds like a sped up version compared to Stwo's slowed down-soulful take on the song, which is a delight for the ears. You can download Stwo's remix of Majid Jordan's "Her" for free below.

Skepta Ft. Young Lord - It Ain't Safe (Video)

One of the biggest tracks of the year, Skepta and Young Lord's "It Ain't Safe" gets one of the most least inspiring videos you'll see in a while. Skepta's been on his 90's vibe for some time and it continues in his new video which he directed along with ASAP Mob's Young Lord. "It Ain't Safe" is out now on iTunes, if you're on an Android device click here.

Directed by Skepta & Young Lord.

Alex Vargas - Till Forever Runs Out

"Till Forever Runs Out" is one of those songs that you have to replay as you finish listen to it, for the first time; such is the song's brilliance. "Till Forever Runs Out" is taken from 25 year old Copenhagen-born London-based singer, Alex Vargas' Solid Ground EP which is out now on musicglue.com/alexvargas/shop/. This is a talent worth keeping your eyes on.

FKA twigs - Video Girl (Video)

FKA Twigs' new video begins with "Preface" the intro to her debut album LP1, before going into her new single "Video Girl". The Gloucester singer was one of the favourites for this Year's Mercury Music Prize but missed out to Scottish rappers Young Fathers. It was a shame Twigs didn't win, but Young Fathers' album, DEAD, is also one of 2014's best albums. "Video Girl" is taken from FKA Twigs' debut album LP1, which is out now on iTunes and Google Play.

Låpsley - Falling Short

"Falling Short" is taken from Låpsley's Understudy EP, which will be released 5th January 2015 on XL Recordings. The song is available now though as part of Annie Mac's latest compilation Annie Mac Presents 2014, which is out now on iTunes and Google Play.

Kiings - The West (ft Piper Davis)

"The West" is the second in a series of planned releases from Milwaukee-based electronic duo, Kiings (Chris Siegel and Sean Foran). Interestingly Piper describes her voice as, "a mixture of a woman and a prepubescent boy." While that's an odd combination, having heard her voice it's fairly accurate! Be sure to keep an eye out for more from Kiings in the coming weeks, as they'll be releasing more new music.
