It’s time to get familiar with a new leader in alternative R&B. Brooklyn-based singer and multi-instrumentalist Cautious Clay’s discography to date has included just covers, but his take on the work of both Billie Ellish and Tori Y Mor was enough to get the tastebuds ticking for his standout blend of modern soul and ambient production hallmarks. ‘Cold War’ blends poignant word play with a harrowing and lovesick spin on the modern R&B sound, setting Cautious Clay up to be one of the most anticipated North American newcomers of 2017 so far.

Josh Pan went out on a limb with this one in the best possible way. More recent Abra collab ‘Give It To Ya’ was a classy affair, but things take a twisted little turn for ‘Jug’ this month. Warped leads and tightly executed beat work lead a solid vocal delivery from bbno$, forming a track that sounds like something that could have held its corner circa 2009, but with enough teeth to sound like something ultimately fresh for the modern market.

DJ Snake has become a good old reliable fella where the crossover market is concerned. Premiered during a live stream taken from atop the Arc Du Triomphe in his hometown of Paris, ‘A Different Way’ was always shaping up to be a big offering from the Parisian hitmaker, who took a break from rubbing shoulders with A-list vocalists for ‘A Different Way.’ His familar melodic flavours match an always on-point focus on inpenetrable hooks once again, making the likelyhood of DJ Snake picking up the mantle from where his heavyweight peers left off all the more likely for the coming year.

There’s not many people that can get away with remixing Kendrick Lamar these days. Then there’s Skrillex. Having barely caught his breath from dropping the Poo Bear accompanied ‘Would You Ever,’ his take on ‘HUMBLE’ builds into a heavystepping affair of the kind of main room wizardry we have come to expect from Sonny Moore for more than a decade. Here’s to the A-list EDM acts keeping it fun and not falling flat on the A-list remix endeavors.

Logan Henderson is a North American pop prospect on the rise. Following up on debut single ‘Sleepwalker,’ the Los Angeles newcomer channels coherent crossover capacity with ‘Bite My Tongue,’ a love-torn electronic pop cut with serious teeth from start to finish. It’s a side to Henderson fans are sure to turn a head to, setting the bar for future singles considerably high.

WOOOOAH mindblown. We just featured a new track from TastyTreat last week, and since then they’ve returned with yet another incredibly produced, and incredibly different piece of sonic art, “Summer (Don’t Go).” An indie dance vintage vibe dripping in lighthearted soulful lyrics reminiscing on Summer’s inevitable kiss goodbye. I am a huge fan.

“Summer (Don’t Go)” comes as the fourth release on Lowly Palace’s urban imprint: Lowly.

Another bass infused pop gem has emerged from Cloudkid Records courtesy of Belgium producer LIHO and vocalist Akacia- “Cold Drinks & Cool Friends.” This high energy, synth-pop banger is the perfect anthem to help wrap up your summer parties and welcome the fall.

Cardiknox is calling all the bad boys with their new pop banger. Written as a homage to their childhood and music obsessed dads, “Bad Boys” feels like an end of summer anthem, with its disco tropes and retro feel.
