It’s been a couple of years since the last electro-pop album from Katy B, but she’s back in a big way with a lot of familiar help. Honey is her project, coming out April 29th via Rinse/Virgin EMI and it’s got a long list of star contributors, including Craig David, Major Lazer, Four Tet, and plenty of others. She’s always known how to bring her powerful voice to a beat thumpin’ sound and it’s always flowed in the most flawless ways. This new project is bound to follow that well-known Katy B pattern with even more to offer this time around. “Honey” is the title track and it’s produced by none other than KAYTRANADA. It’s has got a sexy groove that is irresistible and of course, the tender touch of Katy B’s soulful pipes. It’s a great intro to what’s to come from Honey and you can check out the track below.
With You. is a brand new supergroup that is breaking down barriers and bringing together house music with hip-hop. Rick Trainor, Noah Schy, Jeff Penalva, Daouda Leonard, and Dave Taylor, of Switch fame as a co-founder of Major Lazer, has over twenty years of music experience between them, but they’re putting that all aside to come together as With You. – and they’re changing the electronic music landscape while they’re at it.
While hip-hop and house music have never been at odds, the two genres are rarely successfully brought together, but With You. has found a way to marry the emotion of hip-hop with the groove of house. Their single, “Ghost,” features one of the hottest rappers in the game right now, Vince Staples, as he intricately weaves his verse around a dark, booming bass line, glitchy synth arrangements, and subtle bass accents.
There are some serious dark undertones on this track and Staples’ verse only drives it deeper into the underground. “Ghost” has an undeniable eeriness to it, so be careful where you are when you listen to it, because you might just get so damn high, you see a ghost.
A lot of hot tracks coming your way. Love all unique sounds coming out, it really amazes me how far electronic music has come in the past years. The sky is the limit.
