[Audio] Disclosure’s ‘Holding On’

 

disclosure

Unlike their most recent offering, Bang That, the surprise new offering from Disclosure is actually from their forthcoming sophomore album. Holding On is the first single from the new full length record, which is due out in the vague area of ‘before the end of the year’ and comes equipped with a smooth vocal from Grammy award winning singer Gregory Porter. Check it our below (in a squished official YouTube stream, ‘cos the SoundCloud stream is only a minute and a half. We’ll never understand some of these decisions…)

Holding On has us eagerly awaiting the new album. This one adds a little Garage skip into the Disclosure sound. Keeping up the neo-UK Deep House-whatever synths, peppered with a little early 90s House vibe, Disclosure serve up what is surely bound to be another live crowd pleaser while Porters soulful, warm, vocals tie the track together nicely. Warping synths ahoy!

[Audio] Years & Years’ ‘Worship’

 

yearsyears

Having scored a UK number one single with King, London ElectroPoppers Years & Years can;t really be called up-and-coming or hotly tipped anymore. They have pretty much delivered what was expected of them with a storming round of festival shows last year and a string of acclaimed singles (including said #1). Earlier than we had expected, the band have just announced the forthcoming release of their début album. To be titled Communion, the LP is due to drop in June’ check out the first new album track, Worship.

Worship continues with Years & Years’ trend for mixing up ElectroPop and Indie-Electro with R&B tinged vocals from singer Olly Alexander. The track rolls on skippy beats and pseudo-Tropical keys that set a laid back, but dancefloor friendly mood for the intensely passionate track. It’s heartfelt dancy ElectroPop at it’s finest.

Years & Years’ Communion is released 22ndf June.

[Audio] SLK’s ‘Hush’

 

SLK

We’re not big fans for inter-artist comparisons, but SLK is kinda’ like London’s answer to BANKS. Delivering a warm concoction of avant-garde Future R&B, combining experimental electronics with soulful vocals. Her new single, Hush, follows on from a critically acclaimed EP last year titled Form. Check it out below.

Hush starts out moody, and the gets moodier and moodier. Haunting beats and eerie, backtracked samples pair with subtle and ominous synths that forms a musical atmosphere for some particularly British sounding vocals. There’s a lot to like in here; if you’re into your Downtempo, or Future R&B, or experimental electronics, even a little Dub, SLK serves up an eclectic and involving tune right here.

[Audio] Leo Kalyan’s ‘Full Circle’

 

Leo Kalyan

Hello! the latest tune from Leo Kalyan may just be our favourite to date from the London based Future R&B experimentalist. It’s the next tune to be débuted from Leo’s upcoming mixtape, Stranger, and sees him sharing production duties with fellow Londoner and Bass man Grades. Here’s a  taste of what we can expect from Kalyan (big things we predict) in 2015; this is Full Circle.

Haunting yet infectious, Full Circle pulls off the neat trick of building an ethereal electronic soundscape, and still being funky as hell. Kalyan and Grades layer waves of half hear samples, voices and bird calls, amidst a sea of lush synths and delicate arpeggios. Leo’s voice curls over the track like smoke, tying the tack together with his dulcet tones. Feeling both Lo-Fi and expansive, Full Circle is the kind of track you can keep on repeat and just sink into.

[Audio] Leo Kalyan’s ‘Stranger’

 

Leo Kalyan

One of London’s most interesting artists Leo Kalyan has dropped another new tune to brighten up your week. Stranger was co-written by Leo with Shift K3Y, and sees Leo as ecclectic as ever while he roots himself with an R&B groove, giving him a solid base with wich to go musically nuts over. Keep it on a laid back tip!

Stranger is smooth-as-hell, Leo’s silky voice stealing the show, but almost jostling to hold back the waves of ecclectic electronic sounds. Keeping things spacious, letting every element of the tune have room to breather, Kalyan and Shift K3Y create a smokey soundscape. Stranger is both instinctively emotional and a multi layered synthetic enigma; turn it up and delve into it’s electronic mystery.

[Audio] AlunaGeorge’s ‘Supernatural’

 

alunageorge

Future R&B/ElectroPop duo AlunaGeorge have unveiled their first new tune in a while. It’s been a quiet year for them, taking a well deserved break after all their hard work built up to the release of Body Work, their début full length record, in 2013. Supernatural premièred on Annie Mac’s last show and bodes very well for AlunaGeorge phase two.

Supernatural has got more of a punchy ElectroPop vibe that we have previously been used to from AlunaGeorge. The bassline alone is worth the admission price, and driving Euro synth line give the track a robotic funk new to the AlunaGeorge sound and some slightly more experimental sounding vocal cutting and chopping bring a new edge to the duo’s sweet avant-garde R&B. Supernatural oozes with effortless cool and synthetic heart; and has us more excited that we thought we’d be for their new album.
