Phoebe Ryan has released the official remix package for her current single “Dark Side” including a take on the song by young Swedish production duo NOTD (pronounced “noted). The Swedes amplify the original track’s melodies for a deeper groove.

Woodson Black is dreamy folk electronic artist Haux whose debut EP “All We’ve Known” was released late last year. Black wrote, produced, mixed, photographed, and filmed every element of the EP and recently dropped the remix package for the single “Caves” with a remix from smle.

Copenhagen based former punk rocker turned “viking soul” artist Mattis released his debut single “Loverboy” earlier this month. Vocally, Mattis channels a cross of Rationale meets James Blake over spiky electronic production and a thundering beat.

Enigmatic Venice, California duo JOME seeks to create music with deep emotional resonance. “Mountains” is the first single off the pair’s forthcoming debut EP “Tunnels.” Anchored on whirring synths and an instinctive beat, the woodland pop gem finds the budding duo musing on a fractured romance.

Women’s History Month continues full speed ahead with London trio Jaded’s track “In The Morning”. It’s a fun, attitude packed track that sticks a finger up to usual male-oriented narratives, instead choosing to underline the fact that women are perfectly fine getting theirs. The uptempo horns add a curious joy to the mix that makes “In The Morning” absolutely addictive.

Recently female artist have been taking the helm of production more and one such promising act is 20-year-old New England native Chelsea Cutler. “Your Shirt” is the first single off her fully self-written and self-produced debut EP, and is a bashful confessional anchored on youthful tropes of unrequited love and romantic insecurity.

Quiet waves crash and swell into lush RnB synths in the opening of Alex Lustig’s single “Do Wrong”. Featuring British singer Ayelle, “Do Wrong” has a film noir hue with a hip-hop leaning beat inspired by Alex’s production work with Dizzy Wright and Young Thug among others.

If The XX had a cousin it would be Minke. The enigmatic London upstart’s debut single, “Gold Angel” exudes cool ease and nimble, isolated guitar riffs for a unique cocktail of alt-rock/R&B. The song’s poetic sensibilities echo contemporaries such as Lianne La Havas and Jessie Ware, and is inspired by the resilience required of all women when it comes to braving societal pressure – an especially relevant message at this time during Women’s History Month.
