PIRATE DJs are attempting a world record B2B set to raise funds for musician’s mental health
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. OH!DULCEARi – ‘Hello Kitty’
OH!DULCEARi oozes cool and her new single ‘Hello Kitty’ proves it. Flying the flag for Emo-wave in Venezuela, the rising rapper links up with producer Leston to turn in a flamboyant cut decorated with progressive electro-pop flavours.
2. Kear – ‘Iffy’
Philadelphia rapper Kear kicked off the new year in style releasing ‘Tryagain‘, a four-track EP showcasing her bold lyrical swagger. Combining nonchalant flows and booming 808s, ‘Iffy’ was our pick of the bunch from the project.
3. Valley Boy – ‘Sad Girl’
‘Sad Girl’ is the latest single from Psych-pop duo Valley Boy. Mining the edges of bedroom pop, lo-fi and indie rock, the track’s wooziness does well to flaunt the Los Angeles pair’s eclectic sound.
4. Mari – ‘Doldrums’
Up-and-comer Mari wrote and produced ‘Doldrums’ in her bedroom as a form of personal therapy. What started as an activity to relieve anxiety ended as a sparkling indie pop cut, incorporating catchy synths and lush vocals. It’s a bouncy DIY number showing what the 22-year-old is all about.
5. Cuushe – ‘Nobody’ (Kate NV Remix)
Drawing on her background in minimalist electronics, Moscow-based artist and producer Kate NV has turned in a synthesised rework of ‘Nobody’, a track by Japanese dream pop figure Cuushe. Managing to maintain the original’s essence, NV brings abstract new dimensions to the sound.
