23-year-old Londoner Aleksandra Denton, aka Shura is easily one of our favorite newcomers of 2014. From “Touch” to “Just Once” to “Indecision”, we could not get enough and expect big things in 2015. Today, she gave a remix of the latter from act that used 2014 as a launching-pad, the collective Jungle. Stream below.
2014 might go down as the year of female-driven pop music. And in this segment log-jammed with talent, New York’s VÉRITÉ managed to stand out above the pack. Earlier this year, she released debut EP, Echo, to wide acclaim and to put a bow on what was a breakout year her, she is dropping a collection of remixes of songs from her debut by the likes of Carousel, Penguin Prison, NICITA, Lightwaves, and this one of by DMV producer backstroke. This version takes away the stepping rhythm of the original completely reimagining the song as an ’80s pop anthem compelling the listener with breezy waves of synth and rolling basslines making it feel like a completely new song. Listen below.
Singer-songwriter, all-around star in the making, Zella Day really broke out in 2014 releasing her debut EP showcasing chameleon-like adaptability with her songs toeing the line between fragile folk gems and pop anthems. One of the songs that really stuck out from her was the ballad “Compass” that really had us thinking Lana Del Rey from the very first time we heard it. Today, we have a remix of the track courtesy of Melbourne’s Fractures. His version is less bedroom introspection and longing, more cold, dark twisted fantasy built out of ominous electronic elements. Compare and contrast both versions below.
Brooklyn’s Fort Lean have already planned out their 2015 with the recent announcement of their debut LP, Quiet Day, out early next year via Ooh La La Records. With the announcement, they unveiled the excellent lead single “Cut To The Chase” (found below). In addition to their new original music, they have also found time to cover Otis Redding’s absolute classic “That’s How Strong My Love Is” as a part of a series that features “songs we love, some of which will be familiar and others that are lost gems.” Keenan from the band says of the song, “It’s one of the first songs I ever learned. I’ve been playing it for many years and it still almost makes me cry.” We must say, we were skeptical when first being presented with cover, but they more than do it justice capturing the devastating emotion vocally and instrumentally of the orignal.
