Pixie Lott & Anton Powers – Baby

After a short break away from music, British singer-songwriter Pixie Lott is back with a bang and drops her brand new single Baby this Friday!

Pixie has teamed up with DJ Anton Powers for Baby, an uplifting dance smash that is sure to be all over the dancefloors this Summer. The 26-year-old, who has scored three #1’s and sold over 1.6 million albums worldwide, is back to what she does best and this is proof that she is one of the best vocalists the UK has to offer.

Speaking of the single, Pixie added:

“I’ve been away in the studio for the past few months and I can’t wait for my fans to hear everything I’ve been working on – it feels like a new chapter for me. I had a lot of fun working with Anton on Baby. We first met years ago when he remixed my song Gravity but we bumped into each other in Ibiza last Summer and I knew he was someone I wanted to work with again.”

Pixie and Anton will premiere Baby on TV this coming weekend with a very special performance on ITV’s The Voice Final. Baby will also be launched to radio and clubs the same weekend so will undoubtedly start rising up the airplay and streaming charts in the coming weeks.

During her break, Pixie showed no signs of slowing down. She spent months in the studio, quietly working on her fourth studio album due for release in 2018. Always keen to broaden her talents, she also made a move into acting, starring as Holly Golighty in Breakfast At Tiffany’s to rave reviews. She also turned her attention to fashion, making her catwalk debut at the Dolce & Gabbana A/W show last month and shooting for international titles Paper and US Esquire, out this month. She was also announced as a Coach on the first season of The Voice Kids, alongside will.i.am and Danny Jones, which hits our screens this Summer.

Pixie has delivered 3 UK number-one singles, sold over four million tracks, embarked on numerous worldwide tours, sold 1.6 million albums worldwide and written songs for some of the world’s biggest stars including Selena Gomez. Pixie has collaborated with legendary artists including Stevie Wonder and John Legend. Her songs have been used as the soundtrack to countless movies and she has received in excess of 65 million YouTube views. She is a four-time BRIT Award nominee and the winner of two MTV European Music Awards.

Anton is one of the UK’s most in demand DJs and producers and has rocked some of the biggest venues and festivals in the world including Amnesia, Pacha, Creamfields and Tomorrowland. His collaboration with Philip George on Alone No More reached #4 on the Official Singles Chart and clocked up over 400,000 sales and 27 million streams on Spotify alone. Anton’s recent album Power House topped the UK Compilation Charts earlier this month. As a member of Cahill, he has remixed for some of the world’s biggest artists including Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Cheryl and Ellie Goulding.

Alma – Chasing Highs

Stream/download here: https://lnk.to/chasinghighs

Alma’s extraordinary soulful voice and sharply observed lyrics hit somewhere between Sia and Amy Winehouse. Perhaps understandably the world wants to know where and the how the 21-year-old Finnish powerhouse (currently working with MNEK, Rudimental, Charlie XCX, Sub Focus and 2 Inch Punch) began her career in music. “I don’t think I ever really started,” Alma recalls:

“It’s just when I was little, I understood that singing made me feel things. It made me feel safe, it made me feel good, it made me feel better. It’s how I’ve survived everything, cliché as that sounds.”

Alma needn’t worry about clichés: with her long, electric-neon hair, baggy punk attire and ‘zeros fucks’ magnetic attitude she is everything but the stereotypical pop princess.

“She looks like a cybergoth reimagining of a young Adele and sounds like Beth Ditto had she been raised on tropical house…”

…The Observer wrote recently – they hit the nail on the head.

Germany’s Sony/ATV Music Publishing heard the demos and immediately signed her. But “Finns are naturally pessimistic” Alma explains, so she didn’t let herself get too hopeful. She also wasn’t sure if she was going to be a songwriter or a performer. “But in time, I started to understand that people were really digging my voice and my words together.” She signed with Universal, but still didn’t believe she could break outside of Northern Europe until “my managers and I showed my songs to the Universal UK team and to Republic (now her US label) in New York, and they were like, ‘Fuck yeah!’” Alma’s debut EP, 2016’s Dye My Hair, makes it pretty obvious why, with three euphoric and intricate productions (and one acoustic version) bolstered by her phenomenal voice.

‘Chasing Highs’ is out now.

OFFAIAH UNVEILS ‘RUN’ – THE INFECTIOUS FOLLOW UP TO LAST SUMMER’S HOTTEST DANCEFLOOR HIT– ‘TROUBLE’

OUT FRIDAY 3RD MARCH THROUGH POSITIVA / VIRGIN EMI

LISTEN & SHARE: https://offaiah.lnk.to/Run

OFFAIAH, the enigmatic producer who rose to prominence last year with the definitive club track of the summer, ‘Trouble’, makes his highly anticipated return this March with ‘Run’.

A kaleidoscope of sound, ‘Run’ entices from the start leading with a piano heavy melody and an infectious flute hook, cementing it as another bonafide floor-filler for the anonymous producer.

Last summer, ‘Trouble’ lit up dancefloors across the world from Ibiza to London to Miami to Cape Town with exceptional momentum. But the record’s success was not confined to nightclub walls – ‘Trouble’ went on to pick up more than 20 million streams and over 350 plays on BBC Radio 1 from all the key tastemakers including Annie Mac, Danny Howard, Pete Tong, Huw Stephens, Grimmy, Clara Amfo and Greg James.

OFFAIAH’s sophomore single ‘Run’ is set to be another dancefloor hit for this summer.

Gryffin & Illenium – Feel Good (ft. Daya)

STREAM/DOWNLOAD HERE: http://smarturl.it/FeelGoodGryffin

Last year, L.A.-based producer Gryffin delivered two heavy-hitting singles that showcased his deeply melodic take on dance music. With both tracks built on a graceful fusion of indie and electronic elements, “Heading Home (ft. Josef Salvat)” shot to #1 on Spotify’s US and Global Viral charts, while “Whole Heart” (a collaboration with Bipolar Sunshine) hit #2 on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist. Also known for turning out several of the biggest remixes in recent years—including his masterly reworkings of Tove Lo’s “Talking Body,” CHVRCHES’ “Clearest Blue,” and Years & Years’ “Desire”—Gryffin is now offering up his latest original track and bringing his boundary-shattering artistry to bold new heights.

Emotionally charged and irresistibly high-energy, the aptly named “Feel Good” is powered by hypnotic melody, massive beats, and a magnetic vocal performance from singer/songwriter Daya. Fresh off her Grammy Award win for “Don’t Let Me Down” (the multi-platinum smash that earned 2017’s Best Dance Recording prize), Daya lends her soulful vocals to Gryffin’s immaculate arrangement of heavy synth and delicate guitar work. In crafting that arrangement, Gryffin drew equally from his edgy ingenuity as a producer and his carefully honed musicality as a longtime guitarist and classically trained pianist.

“The lyrics that Daya came up with had so much intensity to them—writing about that significant other in your life who puts you in a positive, happy state of mind, even when bad things may be happening in your life or in the world. I wanted the production to reflect that intensity, but at the same time create a really positive vibe…”

…explains Dan Griffith, who’s made music under the name Gryffin since 2014. “My goal with the song was to find that balance, and I ended up hitting it by adding a lot of synth sounds I’d never used before, and by bringing in different guitar textures and then flipping them in a new way. That’s what the Gryffin project is about overall: making electronic music but using real guitar and real piano so that there’s this organic feeling to every song.”

Originally from the San Francisco area, Gryffin began his musical journey by taking up piano at age seven. In high school he added guitar to his repertoire in addition to writing his own music for the first time. While studying electrical engineering at University of Southern California, Gryffin broadened his sonic palette by diving into the world of electronic music and teaching himself production with a downloaded copy of Ableton. “I got started during a really exciting time for electronic music — I remember thinking I’d never heard sounds like that before,” recalls Gryffin, who lists the early work of artists like Skrillex and Avicii among his first influences. “It all felt so fresh and new to me, and I wanted to see if I could make music like that too.”

‘Feel Good’ is out now to stream and download.

LISTEN HERE: https://Seeb.lnk.to/UnderYourSkin_RCity

Worldwide chart toppers Seeb, now release their exciting new single, in collaboration with R City, “Under Your Skin” via Sky Music/Universal Music. The upbeat vocals, soft synth melodies, and thumping bass-line come together to make a track which is perfect for festival season. “Under Your Skin” has already been selected as the official theme song for the X-Games Norway 2017 in Oslo from March 8-12th. The trio will be performing the new single live at the X-Games on Saturday, March 11th. This will be televised and broadcast live in over 110 countries by ESPN.

“We’re so honoured to have had our new single ‘Under Your Skin’ chosen as the official theme song of the X-Games this year and we are thrilled to be asked to perform it live on TV in front of millions of viewers this Saturday!

Based in Oslo, Norway, Simen, Espen and Nick have, until recently, been working as producers and songwriters, with several chart-topping tracks under their belts. Seeb released their first remixes in the spring of 2015. They soon had a Hype Machine #1 track with their fresh take on Kiesza´s “Cut Me Loose”, introducing their trademark cutting edge vocal tweaks and treatments. This was followed by a remix of Shawn Mendes “Stitches”, before they dropped their interpretation of Mike Posner´s track “I Took a Pill in Ibiza”. The now famous remix exploded on Spotify, giving the trio international traction almost overnight. It rose rapidly up the Global Spotify Charts and even sat as high as #4 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Their debut single “Breathe” was released in March 2016 and already has amassed over 78 million streaming plays on Spotify. Their remix of Coldplay’s ”Hymn For The Weekend” currently sits in the Spotify Global Top 30 with over 282 million streams. Their next single ”What Do You Love” debuted live at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California and has since then has racked over 25 million listens across Soundcloud and Spotify.

Marky Style x Guy Gabriel – Karma ft. Roxanne

Stream/download here: https://umg.lnk.to/KarmaDL

Marky Style & Guy Gabriel, the producers behind ‘Karma’, came to the US from Israel to make hits and that is exactly what they have been doing. Out of their studio in Los Angeles, the two teamed up with vocalist Roxanne for their latest single, which opens on a trapped up Asian riff and explodes into a pop sound with trap undertones.

The music video, produced by Bancs Media, pokes fun at the mainstream’s constant obsession with female image and perfection and we find Roxanne leading her girls into force feeding each other donuts in unattractive ways and poking fun at the industries monetization of appearance and content through a generic print out of ‘Product Placement’ thrown on to random objects that come into full focus.

Originally a hit-making producer from Israel, Guy Gabriel moved to the US to do what he had aspired to do since childhood, which was to make music that the whole world would hear. After moving to LA, not really looking at himself as an artist but rather a producer and a songwriter, trying to get his songs to the biggest artists, he decided that if none of the top 40 artists would record his song, he would do it himself. He then met up with fellow Israeli producer/songwriter Marky Style who had released a number of solo singles, alongside 2 singles with a fellow producer under the name “King”. Both tracks were released through Far East Movement’s label “brednbutter” and TrapCity, and were playing on several radio stations in Israel and Europe. Guy and Marky immediately clicked making instrumentals that rivaled radio with their infectious melodies and banging beats.

The two found Roxanne, who’s voice blew them away, and they knew that she was the only vocalist who could truly bring “Karma” to life. Roxanne, who carries the song and video in a way most artists can’t, first got her start in the music industry as an audio engineer and session vocalist working for big name artists signed to Young Money, Capitol Records, Interscope, Atlantic Records and many more. The 23-year-old powerhouse worked in hip hop for years before crossing over to work with various pop artists and deciding to stop audio engineering all together to focus on her own music career as an artist. The DIY learnings of these artists are heard and seen throughout the single which won’t cease to be on repeat anytime soon.

‘Karma’ is out now to stream and download.

Kato & Sigala – Show You Love feat. Hailee Steinfeld

Platinum-selling Danish DJ and producer Kato has joined forces with British hitmaker Sigala for their new single ‘Show You Love’ feat. Hailee Steinfeld.

Stream/download it here: https://lnk.to/KATOSigalaSYL

‘Show You Love’ is a strong display of the dynamic musical connection between Kato and Sigala. The vibrant track flaunts punchy piano chords and tinkling xylophone patterns, whilst Hailee gives a soaring vocal performance.

Hailee is the secret spice that makes the track come together. Her charismatic pop vocal fits perfectly with the single’s house sound, making it something in between.” – Kato

Kato received commercial success with his hit single ‘Turn the Lights Off’. The track has amassed over 15 million Spotify plays and was included in numerous Top 10 charts across Russia and Scandinavia – ‘Turn the Lights Off’ also gained a double platinum certification from its streaming sales in Sweden. The infectious hit paved the way for Kato’s debut album ‘Discolized’ and its follow-up ‘Discolized 2.0’. Both records are extensive displays of his cleverly-crafted sound. The three leading singles from ‘Discolized’, including ‘Turn the Lights Off’, all received platinum and gold certifications, whilst ‘Discolized 2.0’ received gold status. A leading light in the Danish dance world, Kato has sold over 40,000 albums to date and has over 40 platinum and gold certifications to his name.

Kato has teamed up with British DJ and producer Sigala who launched his career with debut single ‘Easy Love’, which topped the UK Official Singles chart. The #1 track remained a permanent fixture in the chart for 41 weeks and gained platinum status, fuelling the rapid rise of Sigala in the mainstream. He has since collaborated with the likes of DJ Fresh, John Newman, Nile Rodgers and Craig David.

‘Show You Love’ features vocals from Hailee Steinfield, who is known for her efforts onscreen starring alongside Hollywood’s finest actors, including Rebel Wilson and Samuel L Jackson. Steinfeld launched her music career after starring in Taylor Swift’s Grammy award-winning video for ‘Bad Blood’ in 2015. Her debut single ‘Love Myself’ amassed over 235 million Spotify streams and earned her gold and platinum certifications. Steinfeld went on to release her ‘Haiz’ EP and later joined forces with Grey on their platinum-selling single, ‘Starving’ featuring Zedd. These combined efforts have cemented Hailee’s position as an international pop star.

Already armed with massive chart hits in his native Denmark and across Scandinavia, Kato is ready to match this success in the UK. ‘Show Your Love’ is set to build on the achievements surrounding his previous singles and will launch the Danish DJ as an international artist to watch.

Axwell Λ Ingrosso – I Love You (feat. Kid Ink)

AXWELL Λ INGROSSO UNVEIL THEIR HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED NEW SINGLE ‘I LOVE YOU’

Grab it here: https://AxwellIngrosso.lnk.to/ILoveYou

Having teased the single on their social media accounts earlier this week, Axwell Λ Ingrosso have finally unveiled their eagerly-anticipated new single ‘I Love You’, featuring Kid Ink.

The single signals a new sound for Axwell Λ Ingrosso, who say:

“We wanted to just go heavy in a fresh sound to start 2017 and we think we achieved that – and collaborating with Kid Ink was something we’d wanted to do for a while.”

With over 300 million plays of their music worldwide to date, Grammy-nominated duo Axwell Λ Ingrosso’s singles include the US Billboard Dance number 1 smash ‘Something New’, and the four time platinum-selling ‘Sun Is Shining’ – the video for which currently has over 65 million views on YouTube. The pioneering duo were also, of course, founding members of the seminal, multi platinum-selling supergroup Swedish House Mafia.

‘I Love You’ features hip-hop artist and rapper Kid Ink, whose first two albums debuted at number one on the Billboard Rap Albums chart. He has collaborated with acts such as Chris Brown on ‘Show Me’ – which was certified double Platinum in the US – as well with Fifth Harmony on the UK top 3 single ‘Worth It’.

Of this collaboration with Axwell Λ Ingrosso, Kid Ink says:

“When I first heard the demo, I loved the vibe and melody right off the top. I felt like if I added some lyrics to it then it could really be something special. I’m super happy with how this collaboration came out”

Axwell Λ Ingrosso have announced they will be playing at Creamfield’s Steel Yard London on 28th May, having previously sold out the ground-breaking 10,000-capacity event in Liverpool last year. They will also bring their spectacular headline show back to Belgium’s Tomorrowland Festival mainstage this July. Over in the US they will play a second headline show at Brooklyn’s Depot 52 NYC, having sold out the first date in record time, before performing the prestigious closing set on the Main Stage at Miami Ultra Music Festival this March.

Alesso – Falling

ALESSO UNVEILS BRAND NEW TRACK ‘FALLING’

Listen to ‘Falling’ now: http://alesso.lnk.to/Falling

Alesso has unveiled his brand new single ‘Falling’, available now via EMI/Universal. The track, co-written by Alesso, is his first single since 2016’s ‘Take My Breath Away’.

‘Falling’ sees Alesso progress his sound in an intimate and soulful direction, with references to the many early house classics that inspired him.

With 5 UK top ten singles to date, including the number one hit ‘Under Control’ (with Calvin Harris and Hurts), Grammy-nominated DJ and producer Alesso has many accolades to his name.

His debut album ‘Forever’ hit the UK top 30 and featured collaborations with OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder and Tove Lo. The huge hit ‘Heroes (We Could Be)’, amassed over 1.5 billion streams worldwide and helped launch Tove Lo into pop superstardom. Alesso has also previously teamed up with Sebastian Ingrosso and Ryan Tedder for ‘Calling (Lose My Mind)’, which went to No.1 on the Billboard Dance chart and has since been streamed over 63 million times on Spotify. The video for “Tear The Roof Up”, also on the ‘Forever’ album, was the first ever video to be premiered on Snapchat and saw over 500,000 views in under 30 minutes.

Known as much for his incredible live shows as for his releases, Alesso is currently on tour across the globe. He will headline Miami Ultra Music Festival in March, as well as EDC Mexico and Euphoria Texas – all alongside residencies at XS at The Encore and Wynn’s Encore Beach Club in Las Vegas. He also opened for Madonna on her MDNA tour, who invited him personally, referring to Alesso as “the next big thing in dance music”.

Alesso’s new single ‘Falling’ is out now.
