Swiss duo Round Table Knights with a smooth and groovy edit of the track “Hate Street Dialogue” by Detroit singer/songwriter man of mystery Rodriguez that we’re enjoying immensely.

“Round Table Knights re-rub Detroit folk hero Rodriguez’s Hate Street Dialogue (taken from the 1970’s album Cold Fact) into a smooth groove, that’s laced by extra percussive grooves and extra handclaps. A hazy, easy listening track that’ll warm the spirits”

The first question I had about HATEM was what exactly does HATEM stand for? Well let me tell you. HATEM stands for “Hola A Todo El Mundo”, which means “Hello To The Whole World” in Spanish. We’re saying hello back to this four-piece indie rock band and introducing them to you with a brand new track. We’re happy to premiere the Space Ranger remix of “They Won’t Let Me Grow”, taken from their album Ultraviolet Catastrophe (out March 11th). The remix maintains the captivating yet haunting vocals but turns the original balearic-infused song into a more understated dance track.

Red Bull Music Academy launches a new six-part video series today named “HASHTAGS” – it’s a series chronicling the inter-relationship between the internet and music.

The video above is an extended outtake from the first episode which looks at at the renaissance of contemporary R&B and some of its key players to raise questions regarding genres in the “always-on” age. How has the Internet inspired and galvanised this new breed of artists? Have online communities and media been too quick to label genres and movements? What does the future hold for the many strains of R&B? How To Dress Well, Jeremy ‘Zodiac’ Rose, Miguel, Rochelle Jordan, BadBadNotGood and more weigh-in on the topic.
