Swedish producer Name the Pet released her new album “Än” last week, the album consists of ten soulful, electronic pop songs intertwining Name the Pets smooth vocals with playful productions inspired by British dance music from the 00’s as well as the early works of Sade.
“You know when a car passes in London and you hear some really nice beat playing from the open car window, that’s the vibe I was going for with “Radion lovar regn”, says Name the Pet referring to the first song on the album.”
As a songwriter, producer and boss of her own label, Name the Pet is a part of an emerging scene of female producers in Stockholm.
A new artist that recently came across my radar Mickey Kojak just released a brand new single ‘It’s Gonna Be Okay’. The producer collaborated with Jake Stone to bring us an insanely groovy jam. Filled with funky baseline and fun upbeat vocals, this is sure to be a smash.
“Water” is the first single to emerge from London based artist/producer Palmistry’s forthcoming “Afterlife” album (will drop in May 2019 via Mixpak). “Water” is an intimate single produced by longtime collaborator SOPHIE, a woozy anthem about disconnection.
Palmistry is the project of London-based vocalist, songwriter and producer Benjy Keating who focuses on his stripped back pop music and forward-thinking production. Since the release of his much-acclaimed debut album, “Pagan”, he has been hunkered down in Athens, Greece and in the Mixpak Studios in Brooklyn piecing together new album “Afterlife”. In the meantime, he has also had his work interpolated by Tory Lanez, Cashmere Cat and Major Lazer on “Miss You”, been tapped for production by Swedish artist Yung Lean, and made a full album for cult Vietnamese-Chinese artist Triad God.
Swedish producer/dj and Staycore co-founder Dinamarca switches up the Bad Bunny track “Ni Bien Ni Mal” and his version turns it into a sweet and dreamlike jam.
