A beautiful blend of electronic sounds, with a clear soulful voice and clever lyrics. A standout, catchy single from this up-and-coming artist. Rebekah
Very impressed with the first release from Foxwarren – In Another Life is a standout track. Smokey, chilled and beautiful, I’m excited about these guys. Sian
I didn’t know it until I heard it, but this is a collaboration I’ve wanted for a very long time. Odette and Gretta Ray are two of the most beautiful voices rising through the Aus music ranks, and hearing them harmonising together is pure bliss. It’s raw and emotional, they are absolute angels and I’m in love with this song. Gloria
In the first album on Dr Dre’s Aftermath label, Anderson Paak delivers another great record showcasing his unique and wonderful talents. The addition of Dre to the production adds a slicker and more punchy sheen to the piece. There are so many great tracks but this tune with Pusha T is a nice, slow-burner that combines an old-soul vibe and some slick drumming with that smooth LA rap sound. We’ll definitely never forget about Dre. Ollie
In time for summer, this Maori producer/rapper/singer-songwriter brings some high energy with this tune and is bound to put anyone in a ‘Good Mood’. Play this at any Summer BBQ and guarantee people will be dancing. You need Rei in your playlist. Shadeigh
Erthlings absolutely blew me away with their incredible debut single Bridges, and I’ve been (im)patiently waiting for another taste of their sound. To say I had lofty expectations is probably an understatement, but, as expected, Cuts and Bruises is brilliant. The attitude and heavenly vocals present in their debut is still here, but on Cuts and Bruises, we hear a darker, moodier edge to the band. Can’t wait for whatever comes next. Gloria
