Fatboy Slim – Where U Iz (KDA Remix)

DJ/Producer Fatboy Slim (Norman Cook) has a way of serving up hits within a snap of a finger. Following his massive record “Eat , Sleep, Rave , Repeat” in 2013 , Fatboy recently returned with “Where U Iz”, the single which has already received hundreds and thousands streams .

To compliment the single, Fatboy has enlisted the help of house DJ KDA to remix the track. KDA’s edit features tribal percussion and a bouncy bassline, underpinning a chopped vocal hook. KDA first came to our attention with his single “Rumble” , which was reworked by Katy B and Tinie Tempah and went on to reach number 1 in the UK Charts.  KDA’s remix  of “Where U Iz” is the first of a collection of three remixes to follow of the single.

Jennifer Paige – Forget Me Not

As Jennifer Paige prepares for the release of her first fully independent album “Starflower”, Jennifer has released “Forget Me Not” to hold us over. This is the second single to be taken from her upcoming album out on 31st March. Critics have praised Jennifer’s return marking the album as a “triumphant return and one of the early year’s best pop full-lengths”.

Jennifer is well known for her ultimate hit “Crush” which went to number in 16 countries and sold over 11 million copies. After losing her parents in 2008, two weeks apart, and dealing with her own illness, Jennifer had almost given up on music. After taking some time to work on her craft and develop her writing skills, Jennifer presents to us an honest piece of work, written by herself and Jeremy Bose. “Forget Me Not” serves as a reminder that Jennifer is not just a little crush, she is a music force to be reckoned with.  “I’m continuing my story with new music…I feel like that’s what this album is about… going deeper, being more aware. I want to take it as far as I can go, and see what it leads to next”, Jenifer explains.

Shaima – Phenomenal 

Shaima has released the impressive visuals to her latest single “Phenomenal”, which we previously featured a few back. The video was filmed in sunny Morocco and we see Shaima and her girls flaunting some awesome summer vibes in the desert and pool. Speaking on the single Shaima says “It was important that I explored my ethnicity through my music… My music isn’t fusion as such, I like to think of it as pop with some chilli powder on it.”   Well this is certainly one hot spice.

Pat Lok – Love FM

It’s always great when an artist sees a gap and decides to create something to fill it. Pat Lok is passionate about his craft and to fill the void he has decided to release his “Love FM” single fresh from his UK and EU tour. “So many club tracks now are focused on how cool or weird the sounds are… sometimes the musicality gets lost. On this one I wanted to throw it back to when all you had was a simple, memo- rable hook on a groove, kind of like how Armand van Helden and Todd Edwards and DJ Sneak used to do”, Pat says. The track is available for FREE on Soundcloud .

Still Young – White Label (Is This Love)

Still Young return with their first release of the year “White Label (Is This Love)”, which samples Bob Marley’s hit “Is This Love”. The track which is due for release on 24th March, transforms Bob’s classic reggae track into an appealing catchy dance tune, whilst Bob’s vocals echo in the background.

This release follows on from Still Young’s last release “Follow Me” with Steve Angello. “Follow Me” has been in heavy rotation in Steve’s DJ sets and has become a fan favourite since it premiered last year. Set to build on their spectacular achievements into 2017, Still Young are gearing up for a remarkable year ahead. Here is a preview of the track.

Ellie Rose – Plastic City

 “I felt like I deserved a better ending, so I wrote one”, Ellie Rose says about her latest track, Plastic City and she releases the visuals to the song. Ellie is an artist that sings from the heart using personal experiences as her muse. At such a young age, she is making music that we can all relate to in our personal lives. Ellie channels music from an era where she wasn’t even born yet but sings like she wants to relive the 80’s with those who are old enough to do so. Ellie carries a mature sound on “Plastic City”, a track laden with nostalgic references to a bad breakup.
