This summer, musical whirlwind Bakermat is set to re-release the track that started it all – ‘One Day (Vandaag)’, this time accompanied by a remix from Amine Edge & DANCE. The instrumental deep house community agrees: Lodewijk Fluttert aka Bakermat is one of last year’s most promising newcomers. His breakthrough track “Vandaag”, featuring Martin Luther King’s seminal ‘I Have a Dream’ speech has so far been viewed more than 17 million times on YouTube and over 3.1 million times on Soundcloud, instantly earning him an enormous reputation in the scene. After initial shows in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, the track has already made Number One in the charts in France and Holland, and hit the Number Two spot in Belgium.

Maroon 5 is out to give those yearning, unrequited friends in love hope with a brand new song. Today (July 29), the Adam Levine led band released the second song from its upcoming album V as a part of an iTunes pre-order, "It Was Always You." Co-written and co-produced by GRAMMY winning team The Monsters and the Strangerz (Cher Lloyd, Big Sean, Carly Rae Jepsen), the new single further separates Maroon 5 from its funk rock roots. Incorporating electronic and pop elements, this song takes the band's new poppy direction and makes it dark, with yearning vocals and deep twists and turns in the melody, with Levine exploring the lower side of his register.
The once mysterious Zhu that is now one of the hottest acts to watch out for has released his first ever music video to his hit song "Faded" off his successful debut EP The NIGHTDAY. The video is both directed and edited by Zhu himself, it's shot almost entirely in the legendary Social Club in Paris, France. The video conveys a gritty dark side of nightlife bringing the infectious dance single to life. This leaves us only wanting more Zhu.
This is your weekend banger. Mark my words, this song will be in every mix you’ll hear for the next half of the year. Oliver $ from Germany and Jimi Jules from Sweden have paired up to create the infectious tune, “Pushing On,” as their debut release on Defected. ‘Pushing On’ is pure testament to these two’s epic skill. The track features vocal samples from English Soulful Jazz revival band, The Quantic Soul Orchestra set over a steady beat and tempered bass line. It’s got a groove to it that’s classic yet new, a homage to the past and a hellloooooooo to the future.
There's not much Messina could do to make us hate him. Except maybe break Agron's heart. Granted, in real life this would be impossible since Messina is actually married to someone completely different. In the world of Sam Smith's new song "I'm Not The Only One," the two high-power stars are married, but Messina is hookin' up with another girl. While Agron's Glee alter ego would indeed burn the house down, Agron's music video character only fantasizes about it and then takes a much different approach.
They shot to fame on Britain's Got Talent, when Simon Cowell catapulted them into the live shows with his 'golden buzzer'.Now Bars and Melody, who are Port Talbot-born Leondre Devries, 13, and 15-year-old Charlie Lenehan from Bristol, are releasing their anti-bullying song 'Hopeful' later this month.
Rizzle Kicks have debuted their latest music video for single ‘Tell Her‘. Members Jordan Stephens and Harley Alexander-Sule are known for their fun antics which is exemplified in this playful music video where they boys ride a monster struck, a plane and drag racing cars – all in miniature remote control form. ‘Tell Her’ was originally released as a single to coincide with Wimbledon where the duo teamed up with Evian in a video to find tennis star Maria Sharapova.
Rude is the debut release from Magic!, a group led by the Grammy award winning songwriter and producer Nasri Atweh. As one half of The Messengers, a writing/production partnership with Adam Messinger, Atweh has been a creative force behind tracks from names such as Justin Bieber, Chris Brown and Christina Aguilera. As is perhaps to be expected then, Rude is just a bit of light-hearted fun. The track plays with a quasi-reggae kind of feel and tells the story of a man who asks a girl’s father for his marriage blessing, but is rejected. And so he laments: ‘Why you gotta be so rude?’ The song is an interesting mix of feelings.

It’s straight up nasty over here on the East Coast. It’s cold, wet, and the exact opposite of however you personally define “good.” Lucky for us, we have in our possession a new video from production duo, JUUN. For their DJBooth debut, When It’s Alright, the German DJs/producers grab UK sensation Sam Smith to create a Dance/Pop crossover record that will surely match your IDGAF mentality this summer. You know, when the season does eventually change over. So instead of worrying about the pile of paperwork on your desk and getting home sopping wet from the rain, step into a musical paradise with some new friends and simply press PLAY. If you enjoy yourself, remember to mark June 17, on your calender, which is the date Smith will unleash his formal debut, In The Lonely Hour.
Coming hot off of his debut performance at EDC Las Vegas, London-based 23-year old, James Rockhill (aka Kove),has been on quite run this past year, and quite shockingly at only a halfway mark. With releases on Viper Recordings, Toolroom Records, Mercury records, and more, he now returns with a 4-track EP on MTA Records that is sure to amaze listeners across the musical spectrum. Containing two originals, and two edits, the collection contains a vast variety of both flavor and sounds, pleasing in the most impressive of ways. Teasing us these past few months with mere snippets of what to expect on this release, he is now full-on to deliver what may be the EP of the year (if not, one of the best). Vocal support comes from Melissa Steel, with the two genre-divided edits being of his title track, “Way We Are”.
Nadia Mladjao (born 5 April 1979), better known by her stage name Imany, is a French Afro-soul singer. Her stage name, Imany (Imani) means faith in Swahili. Her debut album, The Shape of a Broken Heart, which was released in 2011, reached Platinum status in France, Greece and triple Platinum in Poland.
Lithuanian producer Mario Basanov, otherwise known as the elusive Ten Walls, dished out some of the most versatile tracks of 2013. He’s finally back in 2014 with a composition ubiquitously heard throughout BPM in Mexico, “Walking With Elephants,” released on newly minted label Boso. Reminiscent of the title tracks on Ten Wall’s previous EPs, the production mixes the orchestra formation of “Gotham” with the urgency of “Requiem.” The tuba-driven motif leaps and bounds across a soundscape of electronic-string instruments transcending the listener into a world of lumbering giants straight out of a Salvador Dali painting. Be on the lookout for Boso’s next releases if “Walking With Elephants” is any indication of what’s to come.
Charli XCX has shared the video for "Boom Clap", her contribution to the Fault In Our Stars soundtrack (which will also feature music from Lykke Li). The clip follows the singer as she wanders around Amsterdam, interspersed with cartoonish scenes and snippets from the film. Check it out below, via MTV.
Love Runs Out opens with a driving piano intro, before 70’s rock and soul-inspired handclaps and backups join in. Tedder exhibits his trademark vocal acrobatics as he delivers the verses that continue to be driven by the piano, as well on the pulsating choruses that are as chantable as earlier releases from the album. They appear to be tapping into their hiphop past, the track exhibiting a darkness and lyrical repetition reminiscent of Kanye’s Love Lockdown. The instrumentation seems minimal yet deep, Tedder capturing the energy in his voice to generate the addictiveness of the tune.
As with predecessor 'Hideaway', 'Giant In My Heart' does well in showcasing the sheer power that sits behind Kiesza's voice. The track opens with subtle electro smatterings and distinctly more grave sounding synths. However 'Giant In My Heart' anticlimactically breaks into familiar pulsing garage and dance sounds. Kiesza has proven that she has the potential to push boundaries and create sounds that stand apart from the acres of generic dance music that saturate the current state of music. Nevertheless, 'Giant In My Heart' is all that you'd expect from her follow-up, which is exactly why it leaves us feeling a little disappointed.
