Premiere: Janelle Monáe & Jidenna - Yoga

Bend over and show off dat ass and Yoga skillz for powerhouse Janelle Monáe and her Wondaland record label resident rapper Jidenna! With JM you never know what to expect apart from badass and funy and this is no exception. Over a throbbing bassline we're getting some fun n' flirty vocals with some humour thrown in for good measure. Niiice. Also, a first - we've never sung the word areola and had the urge to do harmonies, haha. Nice one! Listen beloooow; thoughts?

Stream: Jessie Ware - That's All I Want From You (Nina Simone Cover)

Love that awesome Jessie Ware has done a live cover of legendary Nina Simone for BBC Radio 2! Both are a singer's singer so it's literally perfection. That's All I Want From You - taken from the 1978 album Baltimore is a heartfelt ballad with lush strings and a piano only a Simone album could have since she was so brilliant at playing it. The lyrics are hopeful with a streak of sorrow and sound so good when both sing it. Since Nina was 20 years into her game in '78 and was 45 y.o her voice has a depth that only living life can bring. The Ware version sounds like a brilliant b-side from a 70's vinyl single and her voice is so powerful and sounds so sincere. Top marks!

Premiere: Darius Feat. Wayne Snow - Helios 

Wow, talk about smoove! Parisian Darius returns with a more 90's soul sound after his wildly successful Romance EP era filled with club beats. Helios has Berliner Wayne Snow on vocals and we're getting some Maxwell Urban Hang Suit vibes from this. Nice! Updated naturally, but still. Also, Janet Jackson's The Velvet Rope comes to mind. Dang it, these are stellar references to spring into mind when hearing a new track. Imagine Darius n' Wayne in a dimly lit club doing this one and us dancing slowly with a lover, yes plz. Enjoy below - the full single release is set for April 20th!

Stream: FKA twigs - Glass & Patron (Nuri Remix)

FKA twigs unleashed her brand of self-directed spooky veil birth & forest voguing earlier this week - we love it! Glass & Patron is a wonderful mix of style, substance and naturally a sick and disjointed beat set to amazing choreography and stunning visuals. Miami producer Nuri sets the scene even further by going into a dark and feverish mode in this sicknin' bootleg. It's frenetic and makes us wanna move totally uncontrolled and hold crazy poses all night. Mission accomplished FKA Nuri! Enjoooy below!

Free Download: Björk - Notget (ill-ēsha Edit/Remix)

We're truly transfixed by Björk's Vulnicura album era. It's so sad and beautiful and defiant and gorgeous all wrapped up with a black bow. The new word Notget alone makes us shiver with both joy and pain. The removal of the space between the words - amazing. Denver based producer ill-ēsha takes the original mix and drops her own beat on it in the space between a remix and a re-edit. It allows the sun to shine a bit on the darkness which is something we all need sometimes. We have the official remix from Lotic to turn to if we need some fragmented sorrow again. Enjoy below! 

I will not forget 
This notget
Will you not regret
Having love let go
