[Nu Disco] Du Tonc Debut Single Darkness

avatars-000028072055-1rpnn9-crop

Du Tonc is a collaboration project from London Producer Mighty Mouse and Matt Van Schie of the Aussie electro-pop group Van She. After first meeting in a Paris Club back in 2010 they’ve toyed with the possibilities of working on a project together, and we have waited patiently in anticipation for our reward. Well that day has come; “Darkness” is a beautiful blending of bright melodies, funky fuzzy distorted guitar riffs and soft personal vocals. This is an great debut single for these two. It’s bright and beautiful and I found myself coming back to it over and over. Darkness is released on the UK label Cheap Thrills and you can pick it up on Darkness - Darkness - Single.

If you dig this tune make sure and support this artist by picking it up  and don’t forget to show us some love for hooking you up by following us on Facebook and Twitter. Thanks

[Electro Pop] “Diver” from AlunaGeorge’s debut album

[Electro Pop] AlunaGeorge - Diver

Future Pop duo AlunaGeorge turned some heads in 2012 with some hugely successful singles Your Drums, Your Love,  Watching Over You So it’s no surprise that they claimed the #2 spot in the BBC Sound of 2013 poll. The #1 spot going to another great band featured here on Sublevel Haim.  AlunaGeorge really didn’t have a single bad track last year, and 2013 is moving in the same direction for them. Gearing up for a June album debut they’ve released the title track ”Body Love” on  BBC 1Xtra Live Lounge earlier today. “Diver” is the stand out track for me so far. Sultry and emotional they use elements of R&B, Minimal Drum N Bass and Synth pop. Then topping it with some Aluna’s signature vocals and well that just feels like home to me.

[Hip Hop] Azealia Banks – BBD

[Hip Hop] Azealia Banks - BBD

 

FemC Azealia Banks dropped “BBD”  a Trap single Produced by Apple Juice Kid and Sup Doodle. It hasn’t been confirmed if this track is actually on her début album “Broke With Expensive Taste” which is due to come out in February on Interscope. I think it’s safe to say Azealia Banks is riding pretty high she’s getting tons of praises from magazines and bunch of successful mix tapes so it’s no surprise that “Broke With Expensive Taste” is at the top of many lists on the Internet of albums to look out for in 2013. Making that jump from underground to mainstream can be a difficult transition. On a recent comment she made about the rap game she gave us some understanding to where she wants to go as an artist and how she plans on making that leap. “I’d eventually like to stop rapping, that’s just the honest truth,” Banks said. “One day I don’t wanna rap anymore, just because I think it’s easy, but I think it’s kinda tacky. I think it’s very unladylike. I like it but I think I’m gonna get tired of it.”  I don’t know about tacky and unladylike but there’s some underlying truth here that eventually mainstream audiences get tired and end up wanting more from an artist that’s just the way it is. If you want to make it in the big picture of the music world as a female MC you better be multi talented.  So at least Banks has the foresight to understand that and the  honesty to admit it, now all she has to do is make it happen. The World is still waiting for that Female anomalie in the rap game and I look forward to the Lady who can break that boundary and make it happen, but you better bring some serious production and lyrical skills. Hell nobody thought white people could rap until Eminem came and  proved them wrong so it’s not impossible. Banks has allot of talent, a great sense of  style musically and fashion wise and 2012 was really good to her. Now in 2013 I think she wants to  prove that she’s no one-trick pony. So go check out “BBD” (Bad Bitches Do it) and make sure and keep up with her on the Inter-Web by following the links below.

New Video From Die Antwoord “Fatty Boom Boom” dissing GaGa and generally pissing off the pop world.

Die-Antwoord-Fatty-Boom-Boom-video

“A bright and colourful African adventure, complete with wild animals, zef savages singing and dancing in the streets, and a special guest appearance by a sneaky little prawn star.”  …Official description

If you pause at the :46 mark you may notice a multi-headed cat featuring the faces of Kanye West and Nicki Minaj defecating the members of the Black Eyed Peas I love these guys!!!

Quick note: Lady Gaga asked them to open up for her on a couple of dates and this was Ninja’s reply “Um, no don’t worry about it, no thanks. We like making pop music, but we like making hardcore music at the same time, mixing them, but they’ve got, like, soul. It’s not like weak, superficial shit. You know?

AlunaGeorge: You Know You Like It EP

My philosophy is one good artist will always lead you to another one. While digging for some Last Japan tracks I came across his great Analyzer remix he did for AlunaGeorge. That was my first real introduction to them. Aluna’s vocals are lush, interesting and  matched by the support of some great Future Garage Blip-Pop incarnation.

Aluna Francis and George Reid have only been working together for about a year and with just a hand full of tracks out they’ve already been given the nod by Radio 1.  For a young group just hitting birth, that’s a good start. It’s no surprise though the three track Ep is filled with memorable moments that kept  me coming back to it all week.

You know lately it just feels like I can step out my front door and chuck a stick and hit any number of  groups that are saturating the scene with mindless drivel. It’s just dam nice to see some creative and quality artist working together and standing apart from the rest. So go support some good music and check out their site for tour dates and pick up the Ep on Triangle Records, you can also nab it on Itunes as well. The Last Japan remix is a free download via Soundcloud, Grab that below.

Eric Berglund Presents : Morocco Plus – Scurvy

Morocco Plus - Scurvy, Sound Cloud

Loving this new track from  Morocco Plus  and I have to thank Eric Berglund for sending it to us. Now being on this side of the ocean the name Eric Berglund may not be familiar as it should be. You might know him from his solo project CEO and his massive cover he did of Beyoncé’s Halo. Or, if you’re really paying attention, one of my personal favorites The Tough Alliance  a  Swedish Electro Pop group he formed with his childhood friend Henning Fürst. A group that is extremely underrated here in the US.

Here is what we know about Morocco Plus they are Ben James & Oisin Haze from Cork, Ireland. The track  ”Scurvy”  is a free download featuring a great electro melody blended with  heavy guitar riffs giving it a gritty noise pop feel. Downloaded it,  love it and go support some great underground music. Look for them on Band Camp & Soundcloud.
