Free Download: FKA twigs - Two Weeks (Craig Williams Remix)

Wow, loooove this one! FKA twigs' epic Two Weeks has such distinct sound already that we're wild for. It's regal and combines steel and silk for a mix of stellar sounds. L.A based Aussie producer Craig Williams amps up the BPM and transforms the minimalistic original into a electronic club jam. Techno, techno, techno! We so wanna d.a.n.c.e to this one in a darkly lit basement and go wild with that bassline and epic synth. LOVE IT! Enjoy below + download here

Free Download: Antonine & H1987 - Running Up That Hill (Kate Bush Cover)

Kate Bush's Running Up That Hill is equally as complex as it is direct and urgent. It sounds like a gem and of course was a major smash when released in 1985. It's stirring and oh so wonderful to say the least. This dark dream pop take by French duo Antonine & H1987 goes its own way and creates magic in a whole new realm. It gleams and pulsates like a shell of a secret longing to be forgotten. Like sand at the bottom of a well, aching to be seen. Like gold shining with a muted glow. The vocals are dreamy and floats in a night sky, with the sparse production surrounding it like the energy of a brooding animal waiting in the shadows. Top marks!

Premiere: Giorgio Moroder Feat. Britney Spears - Tom's Diner (Suzanne Vega Cover)

Giorgio Moroder has teamed up with Britney Spears to cover Suzanne Vega's ultimate classic Tom's Diner for his 74 is the new 24 album. First of all - WOW - secondly - how would you even do the original justice? The original written in 1981 was first released in 1984 and then got a major release in 1987 as the album opener on Suzanne's second album, landmark release, Solitude Standing. The acapella track was then in 1990 remixed by DNA and turned into a club smash. Some fun facts about this song is that the real Tom's Diner was later fictionalized in Seinfeld as the hangout Monk's Cafe. PLUS - and this major - it's also called the 'mother of the mp3' as Karlheinz Brandenburg, one of the contibutors to the mp3 creation, used the original version of Suzanne's acapella to make sure the compression was working. We love that this new version will bring this rich history into a new crowd - but we can't help to think that we'd have LOVED a new Moroder/Spears track instead of a cover. Imagine a true SMASH of epic proportions with them at the helm. This isn't a smash but not super bad either, and it's nice to hear a Spears vox not totally beaten to death, haha. Listen below; thoughts?

Free Download: Ji Nilsson - I'm Her (Ushua Bootleg)

Ji Nilsson's soulful I'm Her gets treated to a bootleg remix and it's sicknin'! Bootlegger Ushua adds sharp edges and a darkness that is most intruiging. Like staring into dark waters and wondering what's hidden beneath the surface. The down pitched vocals really add to the mystery and the rumbling bassline and glimmers of other sounds are perfect. Love it!

Introducing: Elias - Revolution 

Wow, wow, wow! Swedish rising star Elias has got some pipes! At 19 and still in high school in Stockholm he's got the depth and richness to his tone that makes him sound like a soul legend years into a career. Love it! And if that wasn't enough - he can soar too in a gentle and higher register. Debut single, self-penned Revolution sets the bar high and no wonder he opened for Seinabo Sey over the weekend just passed. Both have voices that grab you and never lets go. Coming from Tensta Gospel Choir he's used to improvising and we cannot wait to hear more. Listen below and read his inteview (in Swedish) with daily newspaper DN here. ENJOY; thoughts? Thank you Karin!
