London-based starlet Justene is back with a fresh sophomore EP titled 2AM and we are so excited to have the premiere. The talented songstress made her debut to widespread acclaim with her Love Life EP and her follow-up body of work is of the stellar quality that her fans worldwide have come to expect. Four songs, immaculately-written, pushing the boundaries of the R&B genre; 2AM is a true indication of her growth and maturation as an artist. “Chemistry” has to be my personal favorite, with Justene singing her heart out through a base of lyrics that hones in on unexplainable chemistry between two star-crossed lovers. Speaking about the inspiration for the 2AM EP, Justene says, “I knew I only wanted to talk about things I could relate to personally rather than abstract things I have no experience of, as I want my listeners to have a better understanding of who I am. To do so, I had to learn how to be vulnerable, dig a little deeper, and expose myself in my songs. ‘2AM’ is definitely my journal of thoughts and feelings in melody, recording it has proved to be quite cathartic. I absolutely love this EP and I think it reflects me well”.

After a relaxing summer hiatus that included lounging on the beach, BBQ and other summer fun the Discobelle mix series is back, first mix out the gate is from Bordeaux based beat making duo Tuff Wheelz.

The mix was originally made in conjunction with their recent “Constellations EP” release on Arkhive London, it showcases a spaced out housed up sound that also incorporates nods to their love for breakbeat and jungle.

Synth-pop duo Oliver is back with a new single “Chemicals” taken from their forthcoming debut Full Circle album. You’d be hard-pressed to find a duo that is doing it better than Oliver right now – the music stellar and as such, performances at Coachella to Hard Summer, placements everywhere from Fifa to Broad City, and support from scene staples à la A-Trak and Zedd have followed suit.
“Chemicals” is out now, with Full Circle slated to drop in its entirety on August 25th via Interscope.
