"All the Way Up" was a banger when I first heard it just never got around to posting it. When Jay-Z came out of his "Lemonade" coma to jump on the hottest track out, the internet went into a frenzy. I know I'm a week late to actually posting the remix, but if you know me I'm the biggest Jay-Z fan, I had to share this even though it's already old news. Remix for the city!
It's spring and there's still no new AlunaGeorge album! But, they are consistently putting out new music and collabs to hold us over while they continue to tease us. This time for "My Blood", AlunaGeorge team up with the always mysterious ZHU for a downtempo soulful and sensual track. I dig the different feel to this, a little different from what we're used to hearing but I like it. What you think?

If anybody followed my last blog, I was real high on Becky Hill when she released her debut single "Caution to the Wind", which I'm still in love with to this very day. The former Voice UK contestant made a big splash two years ago but has been fairly quiet since then. Out of nowhere Ms. Hill drops "Back To My Love", with no explanation and no possible album release, it's just a solid SoundCloud release, which I'm completely fine with. Soulful, dope, powerful, everything I loved about her. Take a listen, you won't be disappointed. Hopefully this is the first of more new music and an actual project.

Kygo continues to build momentum towards his long awaited debut album "Cloud Nine" set for a May 13th release. "I'm in Love" sounds like a little bit of a change of pace from what we're used to but this is a powerful and soulful song. James Vincent McMorrow provides the superb chanting vocals, kinda reminds me of MNEK a little bit with the higher range. Just a feel good dope track.

Flume SZN is upon us! Flume's sophomore effort "Skin" is about to drop next month and the Aussie producer continues to kill it. Coming off a fire Coachella performance last week, Flume blesses us with a new single featuring Tove Lo. Solid song from top to bottom, Flume does just enough where the Swede's vocals shine throughout the song.

Haven't really listened to any of PARTYNEXTDOOR. First impression, the OVO camp got that rap/sing style down, I can see why the 22 year old Canadian singer aligned himself with Drake, really reminds me of Bryson Tiller. Comparisons aside, "Come and See Me" is a solid smooth R&B track, which for me is a good introduction to his music.

Major Lazer team up with Grandtheft to bring life to a 1985 dancehall classic from Johnny Osbourne. "Buddy Bye" gets a modern trap and hardstyle facelift. Free download too! Get it while it lasts.
It's been awhile since we heard the London duo. They've been quietly preparing for their second album which hopefully be released this spring. We have a new single "I'm in Control" featuring Jamaican artist Popcaan, thus having a nice dancefloor vibe to the new track. Hopefully this is just the first of more new music from AlunaGeorge.
