On the cusp of releasing his full length album entitled First Landing via Anjunadeep later this summer, Moon Boots is blowing my mind with the second single to be revealed from the LP. “The Life Aquatic” is truly something unique, as the eclectic producer weaves arpeggiated melodies into the groovy, bumping bed of instrumentals that we’ve come to recognize him by. Dig in!

I’m always impressed whenever Beshken puts out music. The guy has a level of creativity and eclecticism that few producers seem to openly want to experiment with. “The Roman Call” is the first single off his forthcoming EP, one that I will sincerely be looking forward to. Stream it below!

I heard TITUS‘ song “Runnit” a little while ago and was pretty impressed so it was pretty interesting to see him team up with another emerging producer in MEMBA. Their new collaboration straddles the line between new-school hip hop and pop music – and it does it pretty well. “Pull Up,” and vibe to this ish.

LA-based singer-songwriter Axel Mansoor’s refreshing second single, “Out Of My Head,” is out now for streaming and purchase. Being an artist is challenging – In regards to the song, he opens up and shows off his vulnerable side, citing the influences behind his creative process, “‘Out of My Head’ is a song that’s about releasing yourself from the shackles of the inner critic. That voice that says ‘you can’t do it, and you’ll never be able to.’ It’s an anthem about coming to terms with the chips that we stack on our shoulders and letting them go.”

Is there anything Moving Castle puts out that isn’t really freaking addictive? SAKIMA dropped his new single “Happy Hr,” and I’ve had the song stuck in my head since first listen. He says, “it’s actually about being over-obsessed with a guy I dated.” We’ve all been there – love is a helluva drug. Dive in and dance your love drama away.

Might’ve just found my new favorite artist in Jacob Banks. The native Nigerian released his new five-track EP, The Boy Who Cried Freedom via Darkroom/Interscope and it’s got those soul-vibes that’ll make a grown man feel some type of way. It’s tough to pick a standout track but “Mercy” is a great place to start. Stream it below!
