Seattle-based duo Odesza shares new song “Light”, taken off the recently released deluxe version of their sophomore album In Return. This magnificent new track is a collaboration with Swedish band Little Dragon and the result is a dreamy yet uplifting tune featuring atmospheric beats and beautiful vocals by Yukimi Nagano.
UK-based electro duo DREWXHILL (aka Drew Hill) is a friendship-turned-musical-partnership between Drew Nielsen and Philipp Hill, hailing from Denmark and Germany respectively. After the success of their stunning sophomore EP Bullets, released on Born Electric, the pair keep churning out beautiful bouncy deep house tracks for their fans to enjoy. “Struggle” is a delicate mixture of syncopated beats, looped vocals and elusive synths elements that create a rich and haunting result. It’s everything you’d expect from this 3 piece who continue to pioneer their own clever blend of melodic pop-euphoria.
As a bonus, check out “Adamantium”, another great track shared by the band just before the summer.
British-born Berlin-based artist George FitzGerald has already made a name for himself as a star DJ and sought-after producer and he is finally sharing his long delayed debut album Fading Love. Lead single “Full Circle” is a sophisticated and moody downtempo electronica jam (not unlike Kruder & Dorfmeister or Caribou) featuring crooning vocals from Boxed In’s frontman Oli Bayston.
FitzGerald witnessed the birth of the dubstep scene during the mid-2000s in London, but he didn’t begin sharing music of his own until he moved to Berlin in 2010. By 2013, he had released a string of intimate, melancholic club tracks, perfectly blending dubstep and UK garage and slowly evolving towards a more minimalistic techno/house sound. With the release of his debut full-length, FitzGerald uncovers lush house landscapes and addictive grooves coupled with an utterly modern touch and pop sensibility.
UK-based DREWXHILL, formerly known as Drew Hill, is a producer-vocalist duo that blend RnB with ambient sounds. Following the success of their Solitude EP, released last year via Born Electric, they are kicking off the new year with highly addictive new tune “You Won’t Leave My Head”.
The track perfectly resonates with the duo’s RnB-inspired blend of punchy house and sophisticated vocals – a combination that sets the pair aside with a unique song writing dynamic. With a new EP to be announced soon, Drew Hill are ready to make their mark as one the year’s biggest breakthrough artists.

Låpsley is the alter ego of Liverpool-based 17-year-old artist/producer Holly Fletcher. Despite her young age, she has already managed to attract a fair bit of attention with her simple, yet compelling, electronic sounds. Låpsley’s neatly crafted breakthrough song “Station” garnered thousands of plays on SoundCloud, and thousands more after it was remixed by Le Motel. The Belgian producer gave it a groovier spin with nice beats and multiplied vocals, but maintained the chilled vibe of the original.
As you enjoy the perfect balance between the two voices on the track, you might wonder who the uncredited male singer is. Well it turns out Fletcher actually recorded her own voice and dropped the pitch to give the illusion of a duet. Clever!
