Katy B x Geeneus X Jessie Ware: 'Aaliyah'
For me, it doesn't get much better than when a few of the most buzzworthy and talented names in pop come together to make a bouncing club track. Katy B's new Danger EP is available for free on her site, katybofficial.com, and contains this lovely gem on it. Reminiscent of some of Hercules and Love Affair's music, 'Aaliya'" showcases the chanteuses beautiful voices against producer Geeneus' 90's-inspired dance beat. We bumped into Jessie Ware at Solange's concert at Bowery Ballroom on Tuesday and she told us she thought it was the perfect track to listen to before starting your night - and I could not agree more with that sentiment.
Artful Dodger: 'Please Don't Turn Me On (Disclosure Remix)'
No strangers to our column, brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence, have made quite a splash as the garage-house act Disclosure. After remixing Jessie Ware's 'Running' this fall, Disclosure teamed up with vocalist Sam Smith for their big hit 'Latch', which hit #11 on the UK charts. This time the brothers have given their electronic touch to some other fellow British countrymen, R&B band Artful Dodger who are mostly known for their song 'Please Don't Turn Me On,' released in 2000.
Dropout Orchestra: 'Your Girl (featuring Kinema)'
Swedish house music duo Dropout Orchestra are masters of production and have worked on mixes for proteges like Mario Basanov, Moullinex and Flight Facilities. Their latest effort is an original single along with Brighton-based disco band Kinema. The collaboration is a fun, light-hearted track complete with a little disco piano, syths, and of course top-notch vocals. Chromeo fans will love this track, as they share a sound eerily similar in both production and vocals.
