The first of the new releases is “Fyl” featuring Leanys, a sparkling track about falling in love, and the ideal song for easy listening on a summer warm night. The other new track “When My Love Ends (feat. Jackie’s Boy),” a downtempo R&B piece that perfectly pairs Jackie Boy’s croons with SMLE’s top-notch future sounds. Together the four tracks make for a fervent EP that shines a bright light on SMLE’s passionate productions.

 

Danish producer Fabian Mazur sails into summer on Dim Mak single “Edge of Love.” Beaming synths invigorate the smooth future bass-inspired production, which showcases Nevve’s airy vocals.

He has also gotten traction on singles “Sun Goes Down” and his Luude collaboration “Right Now,” the latter recently surpassing 11M Spotify plays.

Nora En Pure is back with her latest sonic offering in the shape of her ‘Don’t Look Back’ EP. Bringing summer vibes from beginning to end, the EP is out now via Enormous Tunes.

The diverse 3 track collection opens with the title track, which consists of triumphant strings, a funky bassline and a silky male vocal piece. ‘Branches’ is an emotive instrumental piece, which leads with gorgeous piano chords and bird sounds. Incorporating a pumping bassline into the mix, it manages to be elegant and powerful at the same time. Closing the EP with ‘Roots’, Nora En Pure calls upon her South African heritage, fusing an African vocal sample with plush piano chords and a deep bassline.

 

Nashville’s alternative rock band, Future Thieves, are thrilled to share their new song “Prom Night.” “Prom Night” is off of Future Thieves’ Self Titled album, to be released on September 7th.

The self-titled album was recorded primarily at El Paso’s famed Sonic Ranch with producer and longtime collaborator Alex Jarvis where ‘Future Thieves’ for the first time introduces threads of pop and electronic music into the band’s organic sensibilities, generating dreamy soundscapes and hypnotic grooves with ethereal synthesizers, vintage drum machines, and shimmering guitars.

 

Keys N Krates’ ode to classic R&B delivers a healthy dose of electronic soul on “Music To My Ears,” featuring fellow Canadian and Grammy-nominated vocalist Tory Lanez. Taken from the Toronto trio’s debut album Cura, dynamic strings and reverberant bass provide a joyous backbone to Lanez’s uplifting hook. Directed by Nathan Boey, the humorous visual follows a puppet version Tory Lanez navigating a series of dates, soundtracked by puppet versions of Keys N Krates.
