leo kalyan - over you

London producer/vocalist Leo Kalyan recently dropped ‘Breathe‘, a light n’ murky number but now he’s teamed up with our boy MNEK and Karma Kid on his new single titled ‘Over You’. Despite the emotional sentiment behind the track, this is another breezy single that exudes a perfectly seasonal mood. Nicely done.

This is Kwamie Liv, a Danish singer who draws you in with her dark and captivating menagerie of R&B. Apart from a sweltering cover of The Weeknd’sWhat You Need‘ and debut single ‘5 AM‘, there’s not much else on her. But there doesn’t need to be - ‘Follow You’ lays it down and tells you exactly who she is. UPDATE: Peek the accompanying music video here too.

Teyana Taylor’s G.O.O.D Music output is proving to be quite the promise. Following her gorgeous ballad ‘Sorry’ back in April, she comes through with a sexy new banger featuring Yo Gotti and Pusha T called ‘Maybe’. Undeniably, the track goes in hard, and the features work great but I can’t ignore that it is a little disappointing how alike this sounds to something Ciara could have released. Musically speaking, Taylor definitely offers a much more interesting prospect than CiCi (at this point we’ve given her more than enough chances to prove us wrong) and vocally Taylor is certainly far more gifted – so it’s a shame ‘Maybe’ doesn’t offer more originality on her part, especially with the G.O.O.D camp behind her.

All that said – I’m still here for this tune.

Our girl Jessie Ware returns following her critically acclaimed, Mercury and Brit nominated 2012 debut Devotion with a brand new single ‘Tough Love’. Written by Jessie and produced by BenZel in New York, ‘Tough Love’ fobs off any notions of a ‘sophomore curse’, and solidifies Ware as one of our most prized talents. Exuding a newfound confidence and displaying a more fuller sound, she’s back with even more Jessie Ware-cool than before. Basically, this is the fucking shit.

‘Tough Love’ is released on PMR on August 3rd.

Following the magnificence of his London EP, enigmatic singer OFEI is back with ‘Wow’, the first single from his second project. True to its name, the track wows as layer upon layer of rich percussive goodness is poured over those golden, silky vocals that we’ve been swooning over for so long.

Swedish singer Mapei made an impression with her indie pop debut ‘Don’t Wait’ late last year and she’s back now with an anthemic new track called ‘Change’. Lifted off her forthcoming debut album Hey Hey, the track continues to impress us with its powerful instrumentation showcasing the songstress’ gorgeous voice.

Here’s a treat, just in time for the weekend…

SBTRKT and Sampha join forces once again with ‘Temporary View’, the instrumental of which featured on the former’s Transitions EP as ‘Resolute’. As with everything these two come up with, it’s an absolute treat. Sampha’s heartwarming vocals rise with warmth over SBTRKT’s stream of glistening electronics. No word on whether this’ll feature on SBTRKT’s forthcoming album, either way, give it a spin below!

With the release of “What Is This Heart?” just around the corner, How To Dress Well has dropped yet another masterpiece in the form of ‘Face Again’. There’s almost a Hip Hop vibe to the song as Krell lays down his immaculate falsetto over echoey drums that’re lifted by a platter of  majestic synths and eerie electronics. Listen up!

Dutch singer Sevdaliza follows up the vibrant ‘Clear Air‘ with the mysterious and dark ‘Sirens of the Caspian’. Whilst the former burst with energy, this new one’s a slow burner, with an explosive bass gushing under the singer’s pitched down vocal. Whilst you’re at it, watch the rather frightening yet gorgeous music video too.

Bayou already had us smitten over his delectable debut mixtape Loopback last month, and today, the producer/vocalist has shared a bonus track ‘Speedboat’. Ashurst offers a dreamy bed of delicate keys which echoes a certain sadness but glide effortlessly under his silky vocals.
