‘Time’s Up – Sampa The Great (Ft. KROWN)
Sampa The Great put the whole Australian music industry on blast with ‘Time’s Up’ featuring KROWN. Released alongside a sensational video, this is not a single to sleep on!
‘Guilty Conscience’ – 070 SHAKE (Tame Impala Remix)
A surprise remix of one of the many highlights on 070 Shake‘s debut album, Modus Vivendi, Tame Impala takes ‘Guilty Conscience’ to new heights with a muffled thuds for drums, effected vocals and a euphoric build.
Contemplation – KUČKA
KUČKA returns with ‘Contemplation’, a simultaneously eerie but soothing song that doubles a moment to pause and think. A masterclass in all of KUČKA‘s abilities as a producer, vocalist and songwriter, she once again exceeds very high expectations with this one.
‘Someone’ – NECTR
The new project from Charlz and Luboku, NECTR might be new but it is already making waves with its sweet debut release. Titled ‘Someone’, the song explores both artists’ talents to create an exciting slice of alt-pop electronica custom made for fans of The xx.
‘Mikey Might’ – Jerome Farah
Following on from his blistering debut release, ‘I Can’t Breathe’, Jerome Farah returns with ‘Mikey Might’. His second single in as many months, Farah is wasting no time proving he is one to watch with another total home run on this single.
‘Lemonade’ – Shadow
WA’s Shadow has followed up his previous single, ‘Russell Coight’ (which the man himself replied to) with the incendiary ‘Lemonade’. Once again showing his prowess on the mic, Shadow does. not. miss. with ‘Lemonade’. Turn this one all the way up!
‘Wherever You Go’ – The Avalanches (Ft. Jamie xx, CLYPSO and Neneh Cherry)
The Avalanches have been teasing new music for a while now, and the wait was well and truly worth it when they released two new singles this week. ‘Wherever You Go’ sees the pioneering pair team up with Jamie xx, Neneh Cherry and our very own CLYPSO for a star-studded intergalactic voyage you can’t help but get lost in.
‘Imagination’ – Cassian Ft. Tora (Yotto Remix)
Finnish DJ and producer Yotto steps up to the plate with a new remix of Cassian‘s ‘Imagination’ featuring Tora. Taking the already emotive single and turning the feels right up, he offers up a melodic soundscape full of ethereal flair, making the song entirely his own.
‘Don’t Turn Around’ – Biig Piig
Rising UK artist Biig Piig follows up her undeniable banger of a previous single, ‘Switch’, with ‘Don’t Turn Around’. It’s a slow burner, enticing and hypnotic as Biig Piig melds a myriad of different styles to make something entirely her own.
‘DAMMIT’ – Aywy, Blessed, I.E.
Three of Sydney’s finest, Aywy has teamed up with BLESSED and I.E. for ‘DAMMIT’. A hazy, downtempo but immediately commanding jam, ‘DAMMIT’ is a booming, bass-y late-night romp full of sensuality and seduction.
