Some awesome new stuff for you here. They worked well together last time when Disclosure remixed Jessie Ware’s Running, and both happened to release some new material yesterday, so here it goes:

1)  Jessie Ware teams up with Bristolian producer Julio Bashmore for the next installment of what we hope is a lengthy musical relationship. The brilliant 110%  uses a bizzare Big Pun vocal sample and a speedy hi-hat heavy drum pattern that is reminiscent of Millionaire by Kelis and Andre 3000.

She is definitely winning the race for the award of the most talanted UK solo artist named Jessie. She has better hair too.



2) The Disclosure duo are doing it big again with this awesome Deep House beat. It’s layered with creamy, soulful vocals courtesy of Sinead Harnett, and enriched with mellow synths. Summer vibez!

Guys, release an album for God’s sake!

Kenyan dance trio Just A Band take every aspect of their work very seriously. They recognise that music isn’t solely about music anymore. Sure, it’s important, but the whole performative spectrum must be mastered if an artist(s) is to be successful, especially the visual and artistic aesthetics.

East Africa isn’t the first place you’d turn to, in search of innovative house/electronic music; but since 2006 Blinky, Dan and Jim have made it their mission to undo this perception by nuancing a competitive genre with their own unique blend of African flavours.

Everything about this group is oddly fascinating. From their fictional back-story:

“Dan had just returned to Kenya from three years of travelling with a Touareg caravan led by Hazim Barghai…Bill had no idea where he came from, having spent 13 years of his life under hypnosis. He came to his senses sometime in 2002, finding himself living in an abandoned convent in Limuru…Jim spent many years of his youth serving Arabic coffee in the coffee and opium dens of Kilgoris”

To the prerequisites for their latest video (which can be viewed below):

1. It has to tell a story
2. Everyone in the band has to be in it.
3. You get only one cut per minute.
4. Every cut has to have a movie reference.
5. It has to be done in 14 days.

Check out Huff + Puff below, which is part of their LP ’82’, released in 2010.

San Francisco all-female post-punk revialists Grass Widow seem to have gone a bit off the radar in recent years. In a time where they probably could have shined with the emergence of bands like Best Coast and Dum Dum Girls, they shyed away.

Back with their first full length since 2010’s Past Time, Goldilocks Zone is the lead track from Internal Logic.

Noisy Olympia trio Broken Water clearly hang out in the same circle as their hell-raising peers Milk Music and Gun Outfit. They just have THAT sound.

Sydney lo-fi rockers Royal Headache are preparing for the release of their debut album on May 8th, via What’s Your Rupture?

We’ve already brought you their ramshackle sounds before, but this new cut was too impressive not to share. Down The Lane is a real swinger of a track.
