Juan Calderon – Empire
“Empire” is taken from Dutch Singer/ Producer Juan’s debut EP JARA which is out now on Apple Music and Spotify. The sparse production and delicate guitar led melody provide the perfect backdrop for Juan’s beautiful vocals. Video shot by Rapresent (Ezra Elhorst).

Miguel – Come Through And Chill
“Come Through And Chill” is the perfect title for Miguel’s Salaam Remi produced new single. It’s a laidback track with a head bodding beat and sultry melody.

Shura – Make It Up
I’ve long been a fan of Shura’s music and latest single “Make It Up” is a perfect example why. It’s got her typical dreamy Pop sound while also having an Indie feel to it. Be warned – it’s a grower! “Make It Up” is taken from Shura’s debut album Nothing’s Real, which will be released on July 8th. “Make It Up” is out now on Apple Music and Spotify.

TE dness – EU Referendum
TE dness’ reaction to Britain voting to leave the European Union. “EU Referendum” is out now on Spotify.

Terror Danjah Ft Jamakabi – Juicy Patty
London Grime producer Terror Danjah enlists former Rolldeep MC Jamakabi for new single “Juicy Patty”. The song features Jamakabi going in and merking Terror Danjah’s banging beat, hopefully the two release more music together. “Juicy Patty” is out now on Apple Music and Spotify.

Tyler, the Creator remixed Zayn’s “Pillowtalk”
Interestingly Zayn Malik’s “Pillowtalk” was a down tempo, sensual R&B track. Tyler, the Creator remixed the song giving it an upbeat Funk transformation. Infact of the two version it’s Tyler’s that has more of a Pop feel to it. You can hear the remix below.
