UK-based Trutopia put together the perfect mix for the winter season and we’ve got the premiere for it today. Consisting of two brothers and a sister, the Trutopia trio have quickly become one of the most talked about new dance acts in the UK and gathering support from key taste makers online, on radio. This is what they had to say regarding the mix: “Finding our way in to the new year we thought we’d drop a bag of tunes that compliment an early January morning. Recorded live from our deck looking at the frosty, sea views in our hometown…” Enjoy!

Nigerian born, British-native artist Jacob Banks has a new single for us called “Monster 2.0,” out now on Interscope Records. Featuring Boogie, the crossover production features an innovative, rich beat and a momentum-building beat that bangs with intensity.
I think the epic quality of my songs partly comes from being African — that really heavy, four-on-the-floor, foot-thumping, warrior kind of vibe has a lot to do with where I’m from,” he says. “I want to use that to empower everyday people, to be their battery pack on a Monday morning and help them get through the day.”

The individuals that make up Golden Coast each bring a wide array of talent to the table. The California natives show a knack for blending organic and electronic instruments in their newest self-titled debut EP. “Make Ya Move” is the lead single, a versatile tune with a sunny disposition and West coast vibe.
“Make Ya Move was our attempt to kind of throw off some of the traditional song-y rules and do something just purely fun.  Kind of tried to channel our inner Macklemore or Bruno and talk a little over-confident swagger.  Think it’s our favorite dance tune to date.” – Golden Coast
