Following the release of his Facsimile EP earlier this year, SAKIMA has dropped his latest single “Ur Bdy”. With a new project on the way, the London-based artist-of-all-trades continues to be a champion for LGBTQ rights and perspective within the arts, refusing to let social standards affect his artistry.

Amazing vibes from Lamalo, an artist I haven’t heard much of until now. Effortless pop music with just the right touch of soul. This is “Come Over,” and the subtle acoustics hit all the right spots.

15-year old rising starlet Billie Eilish is one of the most talked-about artists in the indie pop scene right now and IMO, for good reason. Together, with her 19-year old producer brother Finneas, the siblings combine to make a style of music that is quite unique. “hostage” is the track i’ve chosen to highlight from her new don’t smile at me now EP and it’s hauntingly beautiful. I can’t wait to see her live and lucky for us, she might be coming to you sooner than you realize. More info here and you should definitely peep the whole EP.

Dulsae impressed me with this intricate remix of Axel Mansoor‘s “Wasted My Love.” The vocals are bound to make any song great but the intrinsic creative awareness Dulsae displays throughout this remix is pretty damn cutting edge.

Anything touched by Azad turns to gold. And anything blessed by Azad generally sounds like sex. That’s what this remix of “Enough of You“” is – pure sex. Karnaval Blues is a name I haven’t heard of before but I’ll be keeping an eye out for more music as this remix really put me in the mood. Quality vibes with a sensual touch.. Going to go find my girlfriend now – brb.

Sometimes subtlety is key. Ever hear the saying “less is more?” Well, SCRVP and Secret Sauce seem to have found that perfect balance between injecting too much and too little into their new single “Give It All.” Groovy with a touch of sexiness, this song is easy on the ears and worth a listen.

Can’t say no to one of my favorite rising starlets in Gabrille Aplin. She has a sort of innocent bliss to all her music that reminds me of how happy music should make people feel. “Waking Up Slow” is the epitome of feel-good pop and you should listen to it right now.

Tried to classify this song into a genre but couldn’t quite figure it out. I generally love all types of music but seeing as everyone seems to be making the same music these days, I’ve been looking for unorthodox music to post. ojivolta‘s remix of “Feel It Still” is as unique as it gets and it fits the bill. What do you think?
