Piff Gang f/ Louis M^ttrs - "Middle Finger" | Music Video

Piff Gang Middle Finger

With so many Rottweilers, balaclavas and baseball bats its hard to believe Piff Gang could produce such a soothing visual to accompany the equally pacifying "Middle Finger" but you know what? They did.

Featuring the creeping lulls of Louis M^ttrs, PG members Phaze What & Milkavelli lyrically lead the hypnotic piece that acts as a backdrop for a strangely mellow visual by Jack Loveday. It’s the type of ruckus that lives up to their inebriating sound that even baseball-shattered crockery can't mute.

"Middle Finger" acts as a teaser for Piff Gang's forthcoming and highly anticipated mixtape Pizzy that looks to drop very soon. Before all that though, be sure to hit play down below.

Joel Compass - "Astronaut" | New Music

joel-compass-astrnaut-2

Departing from the dark, melodic vista of "Fucked Up", Joel Compass carves up yet another lane for himself on this latest release "Astronaut".

The crooner from South London this time embarks on a garage infused groove and while using his typical morose falsettos, the lead single off of his upcoming Astronaut EP supplies an more upbeat piece compared to his two previously released efforts.

After "Back 2 Me" & "Fucked Up", "Astronaut" makes up the three for three strike rate and with his polished production and distilled wordplay, things are looking promising for his September 2nd release.


Oceaán – "Neéd U" I New Music

oceaan600x4600

With a weekend of high temperatures and cold drinks on the way, I'd like to present the soundtrack to the event, "Neéd U" by Oceaán.

Nine months have passed since the Manchester based artist dropped "Haze" and while that track was more of a meeting down a dark alley between Burial and Bon Iver, "Neéd U" brings along a more uptempo wavy backdrop as Oliver Cean floats over the tide.

It’s more of a James Blake and Disclosure meeting down the beach kind of sound. What sounds better than that? Whatever you just said was incorrect.

Hit play for the correct answer.


Dornik - "Something About You" | New Music

Dornick

You'd think it'd be a daunting task to shine at PMR records while being surrounded by acts such as Disclosure, Julio Bashmore, Jessie Ware & Cyril Hahn. However, when you've got a track like "Something About You" and a sound like The Weeknd on holiday in Hawaii, Dornik Leigh is going to have no problem grasping the limelight.

The artist, who is also Jessie Ware's drummer and collaborator, today frees a floating, tranquil piece infused with 80's styled synths that compliment his lustrous voice so effortlessly. "Something About Us" is sure to bless my summer soundtrack and fuel my curiosity for what’s next. Until then however, make sure you keep hitting that play button below.


Bipolar Sunshine - "Long.Live.A$AP" | Music Video

Screen Shot 2013-06-03 at 22.44.12

Covers are a real hard thing to master. More times they're shoved alongside the original and meticulously picked apart for every off pitch falsetto or hesitation. That is unless you're talented enough to go all the way left and come out the other side with a totally contrasting take on the track.

Bipolar Sunshine is that 'talented enough' artist today. While not content with dealing with just one record, Manchester-based singer Adio Marchant fearlessly takes on three of A$AP Rocky's hits at once; merging all three into a melodic, coherent piece over a string of mellow guitar strokes that shift the mood cleverly from the initial blueprint drawn by Rocky.

Justin Timberlake reaches No.1 with 'Mirrors' | UK Chart News

justin-timberlake-mirrors

Justin Timberlake has been commited to making his mark on the music world again with his comeback album The 20/20 Experience, and he's off to a great start with his second single "Mirrors" shooting straight to number one in the UK charts.

Although the first single "Suit & Tie" somehow only managed to get to the number three spot in the UK, Timberlake has been putting in a fierce amount of work to rectify that oversight as he hasn't missed a trick by performing at the Brit Awards last month as well as holding a sold out gig straight after at The Forum, much to the delight of his fans. His UK supporters have, in turn, repaid the favour by sending his new single straight to the top.

Justin Timberlake's new album, The 20/20 Experience, will be out March 19th.

Arlissa - "Sticks & Stones" | Music Video

arlissa
Arlissa set herself a near impossible task after hitting the public consciousness with a debut song "Hard to Love Somebody" featuring arguably the greatest rapper of all time Nas. How was the 21 year old London raised newcomer supposed to follow that up?

Well today she unveiled the official video for her new single "Sticks & Stones" and put my worries to rest. The Roc Nation managed singer-songwriter's new single is a polar opposite of the Nas featuring warm-up, with it's tribal rhythms, driving beat, yodelling backing vocals and evocative lyrics, the earthy pop track is definitely a winning sound for the emerging star.

Coupled with the official video, which was filmed in the Honey Swamp Island in Louisiana, which feels like a scene from Peter Pan's Never Never Land, with Lost Boys' and girls living their lives how they want as part of a carefree magical tribe. Very impressive stuff. Press play below.

"Sticks & Stones" will be released on the 3rd of March
