Listen, if Mary’s team have any sense they’ll lock her in a studio with Disclosure for a week or five and have them produce either her entire effin’ album or at the very least a bunch of tracks. This short preview for ‘F For You’ which now features an epic Mary vocal is without question the most relevant thing she’s done in years. Lets hope theres more of this, much more.. Update: Full video now included. Gwan Mary.

Man like Sampha has just re-upped an early release of his called Sundanza, which he explains: “is a collection of early productions of mine… My brother accidentally deleted the master files from my computer so they exist only as low quality unmastered mp3s. It was originally released on very limited hand sprayed CD-R’s in 2010, but I decided to make it available with all income going directly to the Youth Cancer trust”.

Perhaps a little different to the Sampha many have come to know over the past year or so, but for long-time fans – this might sound a little more familiar. Either way this is kinda-new Sampha and is raising money for a great cause – win win.

Kwabs continues his magnificent run by following up the SOHN produced ‘Wrong Or Right‘ with an arresting new visual. Conveying the track’s groove, the video aims to illustrate the passion of a group of street dancers. Whilst shots of the crooner are brief, viewers are treated to some pretty impressive choreography, take a look up top.

King Krule - Easy Easy (20syl Remix)

With perhaps the most unique and most recognisable vocals in music today, Archy Marshall aka King Krule’s debut 6 Feet Beneath the Moon should be revered for its distinct aesthetic.  The original and deeply introspective version of his post-punk disposition ‘Easy Easy’ compelled many last summer, and now, the track is given a refreshing makeover courtesy of French producer 20syl. Pairing a chill-wave instrumental, with its placid strum and forceful bassline, against Krule’s raw, gritty vocal is a quite honestly, a stroke of genius. If you find yourself gushing over this, check out a pretty rad remix of Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Sing That Sh*t’ here too.

We featured Jeftuz’ rather banging remix of Justin Bieber’s ‘All That Matters’, now the Dutch producer has released his latest single off his forthcoming EP The Dutch. Featuring a scrumptious Mary J style sample, ‘My Love’ sounds like the type of sexy groove that can only come out of a place like the Netherlands. That continental swag, if you will. Point being this is a tune that you should quickly tuck into.

Jeftuz recently compiled a special playlist with our friends 22Tracks, take a listen to that here. His new EP is out today.

Last night Mercury Prize winner James Blake unleashed a few new jams for fans to drool over. During his debut BBC Radio 1 show, Blake played a brand new tune called ’40455′, a track which features simplistic drum and piano instrumentation along with his distinctively isolated vocals. Following that he played a special Harmonimix remix of Beyonce’s ‘Drunk in Love’, a totally warped expansion on the original Jay-Z assisted single, as well as a new rework of Mystikal’s ‘Pay Me’.

Listen to ‘Drunk in Love’ up top and ’40455′ & ‘Pay Me’ below.

Take a look at Dornik’s new video for his single ‘Rebound’ which we highlighted late last year. The track, with its 80′s drenched disco references will inevitably raise comparisons to Dev Hynes but is in its own right a suave offering that suits Dornik’s whisper-cool vocal to a tee.

After a final name change, Australian duo Margiela Madman are back with yet another delectable slice of electronic infused R&B. Their debut track ‘Nothing Else (Part 1)’ dazzled with its Jai Paul-esque beat and vibrant instrumentation, not to mention those hazy vocals. And to no surprise their follow up, ‘Take A Dive’ does not disappoint. Find yourself eased into a tender slur of percussive sounds as the track gradually intensifies and those lush, silky vocals are let loose, snaking through the mellow backdrop.

Premiering on PinBoard – take your first listen below.

Outkast, Muse and Arcade Fire have been announced as headline acts for Coachella 2014.

Each year the festival, which takes place over two weekends in April (11th-13th & 18th-20th) sees a whole load of acts take to the stage and of course this year is no exception. Pharrell, Disclosure, Nas, Solange, HAIM, Lana Del Rey, Blod Orange, the Internet, Shlohmo, A$AP Ferg and many others will all head to the desert to perform. It’s crazy how all those awesome names feel relatively unimpressive when stacked up under Outkast, right? Full line up above.

More info here. See you in the desert.

Mar, the elusive singing unicorn from Amsterdam returns after a relatively extended hiatus with ‘Man x Woman’ a pulsating new jam produced with longtime friend and collaborator Full Crate.

‘Man x Woman’ is definitely ticking boxes and certainly serves its purpose as a sexy dance floor filler, but personally I’d have been more excited by hearing it more downplayed and progressive, in a similar vain as to what it evolves into towards the latter part of the track. Whether it’s because the aesthetic of the track has become so abundant over the past couple years or quite simply because it’s been a long time since we heard Mar sing (and lets face it, no one sings like Mar) – I do miss the leftist mentality Full Crate & Mar applied when they approached their early material and debut EP; Not suggesting that needs to be replicated, but I am finding myself in need of that particular spirit of European experimentalism again.

That said, tuck in to this – ‘Man x Woman’ is a sure fire winter warmer with delicious chords and sexy drops. It’s also great to see these guys back at it again. Mar’s forthcoming EP Form is coming soon.
