Mall Grab recruits Novelist and D Double E on murky jungle anthem ‘Times Change’
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. LNDFK – ‘Smoke – A moon or a button’
Channeling her experiences and sensibility through a rose-tinted filter of jazz, neo-soul and hip hop, Tunisia-born and Naples-raised artist Linda Feki, aka LNDFK, is on course to do big things. Taken from her new ‘Kuni’ record, ‘Smoke – A moon or a button’ is an ultra-smooth alt-jazz offering showcasing the singer’s impressive sound.
2. Kevin Heartbeats – ‘Bark Bark’
French producer and songwriter Kevin Heartbeats likes to make music on the edge, striking a balance between commercial tropes and experimental sounds. Starting out in indie rock before progressing to bedroom pop, Kevin’s craft has now evolved into something different entirely. On ‘Bark Bark’, the rising talent’s densely textured electronic productions blend with his ethereal melodies to create something spectacular.
3. MAQ 22 – ‘oxidized’
Hailing from Zürich, Switzerland, MAQ 22 is emerging as one of the most forward-thinking artists in the underground. Last year was a pace-setting 12 months for the artist and 2022 has got off to an even stronger start with the release of his new album ‘Catch-22’. The project’s opening track ‘oxidized’ has been stuck in our heads ever since we first heard it.
4. Loverground – ‘How U Feel’
Taken from his upcoming EP ‘My Love Is True’, Loverground’s new single ‘How U Feel’ is an atmospheric and airy cut recounting the troubles of love. Based between Barcelona and London, multi-instrumentalist Kevin Erlicher draws upon pop, house and R&B to create his infectious style.
5. Xlovclo & Dylvinci – ‘Nawf”
‘Nawf’ is a catchy R&B/rap-infused banger from two rising artists in their own fields. Taking inspiration from 90s soul, R&B and jazz, producer Dylvinci creates the perfect beat for Xlovclo to hop on with his melodic flows.
