Remedios the Beauty

Rae Sremmurd - No Type (La+ch Remix)

La+ch seems to be on a roll these days. Fresh off his chart-ascending single "You Are My Summer" the Toronto based producer is back with a remix of Rae Sremmurd’s “No Type”.  La+ch places his signature house sound to the Mike Will produced hit, and the outcome is an infectious banger that gives the original a run for its money.

New Dorp. New York' perfectly set the tone to SBTRKT’s forthcoming and unfortunately slightly delayed (by about a week) Wonder Where We Land. But today, we’ve got the music video soundtracked by Ezra Koenig’s eccentric vocals. The rather creepy clip features an animated lizard/panther type-thing which makes its way through streets, cars and some mist before resting on a metallic open hand to capture the album’s artwork. Take a look above!

Coleman Hell + La+ch - Take My Love (#sideways in the UK)

Just when you thought it was safe, Toronto based collective sideways return with a fresh new UK inspired single. Written, recorded and shot on their recent UK tour, Coleman and La+ch fuse their signature falsetto with some bouncy verses that open with a Helena Bonham Carter reference..what more can you ask for?  Give it a spin up top.

Mercy

machine-factory:

Having produced most of Beyonce’s surprise album last year, and dropping the brilliant WinterSpringSummerFall mixtape earlier this year, we can see why BOOTS took some time off. But today, he returns with ‘Mercy’, a splendid number which sees the producer continue to stretch his artistry. His raw vocal is exposed in the beginning with a piano melody to accompany before brash electric guitars are joined by a thumping drum to spice things up  a bit. Give it a spin above!

Raury seems to be everywhere lately! Following his Indigo Child project and The Neighbourhood collab, the Atlanta based wonderkid teams up with UK producer SBTRKT on ‘Higher’. Creepy insect sounds open the track before a stellar bass kicks in and Raury blasts his way in with a super fiery flow. It’s the first real taste of him rapping, and it’s bloody brilliant. ‘Higher’ is taken off SBTRKT’s forthcoming Wonder Where We Land LP out later this month; listen up!
