Daniel Bayot – Like You Love Me

The captivating bass-line starts it off and is elevated with Daniel’s exquisite soulful vocals. The pre-chorus lift is perfection. The chords and his voice just gets me, like a solid Stevie Wonder track. Then we are treated to an addictive vocal melody in the chorus. This is how a well structured song should sound. His musical chops (years of formal classical training) shine through out this track. For fans of Sam Sparro and Years & Years

teeballpaul – Thank You For Consideration

This track has a killer chorus that is sticky sweet and is catchy as all get out. It has a smooth disco undertone to it with falsetto vocals and funky bass. One of my favorite tracks to date this year. There is no extraneous bits here, it’s all crafted to perfection. teeballpaul is a one-man-band based here in Los Angeles, hence the Southern California vibe you hear on the track.

Maicous- Take My Light (featuring F.A.R)

What does one get when you mix a helping dose of Nu-Disco with vocal stylings reminiscent of The Knife? Well you get the latest releases from Maicous, ‘Take My Light’. This is one HOT track that is smooth but grooving. All the textures like the string stabs, rezy bass and laser shots support the vocals that are cool and sensual. Macious (aka Mark Crawford) currently hailing from the UK teamed up with Fox And Riot (F.A.R aka Rhys Oakes) on this outing. Hoping they continue to team up and make more tunes in this genre.
