girl_irl’s ‘siren’ gets treated to a club-ready CyberKills remix
Incorporating talent from across the globe, check out our five Tracks of the Week taken from our meticulously-curated BRAND NEW playlist showcasing some of the most exciting up-and-coming talents around.
1. Jim Legxacy – ‘cold lewisham roses’
Up-and-coming talent Jim Legxacy’s latest release ‘cold lewisham roses’ is a soul-bearing single exploring the emotional abuse he suffered during a previous relationship. Melding rap, drill, pop, Afrobeats and more, the track delves into the topic of classism, as well as Jim’s experiences of masculinity and hypersensitivity growing up as a young black man in South East London.
2. aboynamedblu – ‘building a boat’
Bubbling away in the underground while crafting his slick and stylish lo-fi sound, aboynamedblu’s brand new EP ‘in a room with no floors’ has finally landed. For this selection, however, we want to take it back to a project he released earlier in the year with a single entitled ‘building a boat’. Emotive, vocally stunning and poignant, it’s what the rising artist is all about.
3. Kiimi – ‘Trust’
Continuing to develop her eclectic melting pot of hazy electronics, producer, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist Kiimi is on the money yet again with her new single ‘Trust’. Combining her ethereal vocals with a low-slung liquid house sound, the track acts as a dazzling ode to club culture.
4. Ebina Florine x Paperwater – ‘When You Call Me’
Navigating the warm waters of electronic, pop and alternative soul from her sun-soaked hometown of Miami, Ebina Florine has been making her organic soundscapes since 2016. Her latest single ‘When You Call Me’ enlists the help of avant-garde production duo Paperwater to create the laid-back beat for Ebina’s melodies to glide over.
5. Pongo – ‘Wegue Wegue’
It’s rare to find a track as instantly captivating as ‘Wegue Wegue’ by Pongo. Mixing her African heritage with EDM, dancehall and melodic pop, the rising star embodies the renewal of Kuduro music – a powerful and energetic dance sound originating in Angola. This is one that is sure to get the party started.
