Pretty Sister isn’t letting the winter weather keep him down, but that’s probably because he’s based in LA, and not in the Midwest, such as myself. “Drive” embodies that LA life, with the sunshine, and windows down. J blazing, fun chasing, Tupac listening, you get the point. It’s a pretty compelling song for me to drop whatever I’m doing, and make the move to LA. Pretty Sister is also behind the insanely good “Pony” cover, which I left below, as well.
Santigold has always known how to bring the party, whether it’s in her music or her energetic live shows. She’s got that something special to get fans energized and feeling good. “Banshee” is her latest track off of her upcoming new album 99¢ and it’s got that wacky, spastic sound that Santigold is so great at perfecting. Her new album is bound to bring her to the next level and we can join the ride when the album releases on February 26, via Atlantic Records. Check out the Beats 1 premiere of “Banshee” below.
Vanbot is far from typical, with a sound that’s unique and genuine. The Swedish artist brings a fusion of electro-pop that has brought in many new listeners in the past year. “The Way You Say It” is one of the many tracks that blossomed as a single for Vanbot’s latest album and now it’s gotten a new treatment from Superwalkers. This remix gives the track a lighter, upbeat feel that is impossible to deny. It’s a tune that would fit perfectly during those spring/summer days (which hopefully come to us sooner than later). For now, we can just dream of those moments and enjoy some catchy sounds. Check out the Sunset in the Rearview premiere of the Superwalkers Remix of Vanbot’s “The Way You Say It” below.
POSTAAL’s “Burnin’” is a masterstroke of slow-building, starting off as a spark and bursting to life around 90 seconds in.
There isn’t much information out about the Paris duo, but they are certainly doing a good job of letting their tracks speak for them.
“Burnin’” is an anthemic, fist-raising powerhouse, a bit reminiscent of M83 or early Passion Pit. The track is dense an cinematic, a soaring mix of synths, strings, hard-hitting drums and restrained vocals.
For a young duo, their music displays tremendous complexity and emotion, and it’ll be exciting to see where they go next.
Covers are a tricky thing for an artist to pull off successfully, let alone a producer. Luckily for JR Nelson (who has made a splash with a pair of massive remixes), his cover game is just as on point as his remix game. Tackling The Weeknd is surely no easy task, and although the featured Amory isn’t as dynamic of a singer as Abel, JR puts his enough of his own unique “future” R&B flavor to make this cover interesting. With soulful strings and tight percussion, JR once again proves he’s a producer to watch out for this year.

Dreezy just dropped her debut single ‘Body’, with a guest appearance from Jeremih. The tune features light production, with sizzling snares perfectly complementing the two singers’ airy voices. Dreezy’s interplay with Jeremih sounds exceedingly natural – I wouldn’t be surprised if we hear this collaboration again. The Chicago newcomer adds a lighthearted and bouncy vibe to Jeremih’s characteristically sultry approach; check out this refreshing R&B tune below.
Florrie has been teasing her fans with small collections of songs for years. She’s released an EP here and there, but the long-awaited full-length has never quite reached the surface like many would have hoped. However, 2016 may finally be the year of Miss Florrie, the pop, electric songstress. To warm her fans up for what’s to come, she’s released her latest tune “Real Love” and has delivered it in a lovely, colorful music video. “Real Love” is probably the purest “pop” song Florrie has released to date and it’s got a genuine sparkle. It’s light-hearted, yet heavy on the catchiness factor. If you’re ready to get a song stuck in your head for the rest of the day, take a listen below to Florrie’s addictive tune.
Two heads are better than one, and the Halogen boys have teamed up with fellow production duo The Chainsmokers to drop yet another head-bobbing remix. This time, Halogen lend their talents to turn the already awesome “NYC” into a more driving and thumping cut. Look out for more from these guys soon as we head into festival season.
Stream Halogen’s remix of “NYC” below and let us know what you think in the comments!
Over a release schedule spanning 3 years (at least on Soundcloud), Jazz/Soul Singer-Songwriter Isabel has been routinely supplying quality music, and her recent release, “Fences”, is a clear and definitive step in a strong direction for the Brisbane artist.
Riding uncomplicated and smooth production (a mainstay in her releases to date), Isabel’s sizzling voice stars among the keys and drums on the Steve Thornely assisted record, creating a stripped down feel. Lyrically, Isabel mixes unpredictability with just enough familiarity to create a stunning original concept. The final product is a resounding statement of intent from an upcoming artist with undeniable potential to make some waves in the near future.
Listen to “Fences” here!

Gallant & Jhene Aiko make music that sounds like babies should be made in a slow manner. “Skipping Stones” is wonderfully crafted, utilizing Gallant’s range over a jazzy tune while Jhene compliments him like jelly compliments peanut butter. Can’t get enough of this one. Gallant is about to make a big splash in 2016. Shout out to Red Bull Sound Select for the tune!
