Remix: Izzy Bizu – “White Tiger” (Cat Carpenters Remix)

Izzy Bizu is a 22-year-old singer/songwriter from South West London, born to an Ethiopian Mother and English Father. She grew up listening to Ella Fitzgerald, Betty Swan, Betty Wright, and James Brown and draws on these influences alongside newer influences such as Amy Winehouse and Adele, to create a fusion of soul, funk, jazz, and pop that sounds classic and brand spanking new all at once.

Being 2016 Brits Critics Choice finalist, The BBC’s Introducing Artist of the Year 2016 and chosen as the voice of the 2016 Euros with her cover of Edith Piaf’s La Foule, she is quickly proving herself as one of the most exciting breakthrough British artists of the year. Garnering early support from 1Xtra and BBC Radio 1 on her independent six-tracker, Coolbeanz EP, before signing to Sony/RED MUSIC there’s been plenty a new fans in the front row thanks to instant classics like “White Tiger”, now with over 75 million global Spotify streams, the heart-wrenching “Mad Behaviour”, and viral Honne collaboration “Someone That Loves You”.

Drawing on her time moving countries, schools and the relationships that have entailed, Izzy is a cultural explorer, memories, experience and feelings evoking the songs we’re soon to hear and the thought-provoking conversation she already provides. Wearing her thoughts on her sleeve, you’ll be pushed to find many a debut this honest.

Check ‘Em Out: POOLCLVB Remixes For “Always” From Odd Mob and Ocular

poolclvbpic

Recently Australian producer POOLCLVB gave us the first peek at his forthcoming debut EP with a summery new track called “Always”, and this week he is excited to share two incredible remixes of that track from Brisbane duo Odd Mob and US producer Ocular.

“We went a little bit more experimental with this remix whilst still retaining the summery-road trip vibes of the original” – Odd Mob

“The first time I heard the track and the vocals I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. Most of my tracks lately have been more graves and MYRNE-esque but I went back to my roots with this one.” – Ocular

“Always” is a homage to Australian house, with summery, playful rhythms and samples. Carl Fox (of Porsches) lends his languid and sultry vocals, telling the classic story of ‘boy meets girl’.

“Written and recorded in a single day, we bounced lyrics back and forth and it just came together so organically. Sometimes guys dont express their feelings as much as girls, we wanted this track to do just that. If you find it hard to say I love you, let this track speak for you.” -POOLCLVB

With candied, sprightly melodies over dance-flecked synths and drum machines, POOLCLVB brings to mind the infectious feelings of a new relationship; brimming joy and seemingly endless possibilities.

Check out the original of the track below:

“Always” is available now through etcetc music, ahead of POOLCLVB’s forthcoming debut You + Me EP which is seeing its release in January 2017.

Which one is your fave?

The Temper Trap’s eagerly awaited third studio album Thick As Thieves is set for release June 10th on Glassnote Records.

Tickets will be available for public sale beginning today via thetempertrap.com.  A full listing of the dates can be found below.

The album’s anthemic lead single Fall Together– dubbed “a powerhouse” tune by Billboard – has been given a dance-floor ready update by fellow Aussie act Just A Gent. The “Fall Together” Just A Gent Remix premiered and you can check that out below.

Thick As Thieves marks the first time The Temper Trap has collaborated with outside songwriters in their history, with striking results. Justin Parker (Lana Del Rey, Sia, Bat For Lashes) worked on “Fall Together”, whilst the album also features collaborations with Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter), Malay, co-writer & producer of Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange and Pascal Gabriel (Ladyhawke, Goldfrapp).

Listen: Monika – “Secret in the Dark” (Juan MacLean Edit)

Monika

“…a bright but bass-heavy tune, with a strutting disco vibe driving its keyboard loop that calls Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition” to mind.”  The New York Times

 ” …disco-indebted art pop.”  FADER

 “Hear Monika’s synth-sational fidelity-fuck…”   Impose Magazine

 ” …soaring vocals from Monika and a glittering yet dark-hued web of synthesizers, all propelled by a strong dance groove.”  WNYC Soundcheck

 “Monika’s wavering, Florence-esque voice anchors [Shake Your Hands’] heavy dollop of twinkling synths and toy-keyboard interjections… “ – SPIN

Listen: Monika – “Secret In The Dark” (Juan MacLean Edit)

With two platinum records under her belt in her homeland of Greece, Monika emerges with a cunningly crafted collection influenced by ‘80s art pop and organic leftfield disco tones. Her new critically acclaimed album, Secret In The Dark is out now via Other Music Recording Co. The Stereogum-dubbed “musical sensation” is taking her captivating live show on the road. The stint of dates includes a stop at Making Time in Philadelphia, a support slot with Carly Rae Jepsen and kicks off on February 23 in Los Angeles.

With accolades ranging from  Pitchfork, SPIN & Stereogum to NPR Weekend Edition & The New York Times, + a GenF feature in the next print issue of FADER, Monika has made a major splash with Secret In The Dark. DFA’s Juan MacLean put his unique touch on the album title track which premiered with Consequence of Sound today.

Secret In The Dark breathes generational genre-spanning influences. Amassing a dream-team of musicians, Homer Steinweiss, Thomas Brenneck, Nick Movshon, Victor Axelrod, Leon Michels, and others from the Brooklyn scene join Monika on Secret In The Dark. Recorded at the Daptone-renowned Dunham Sounds Studios (Sharon Jones, Charles Bradley, Dan Auerbach) and produced by Dap-Kings & Menahan Street Band founding member Homer Steinweiss, the album exudes generational and genre-spanning influences. Monika’s live show is a force to be reckoned with.
