Brand new @porterrobinson // Sad Machine

Porter Robinson has always been one of those special producers for me, where every new track of his almost leads me to tears. After extensively searching the internet to find out when his debut album ‘Worlds’ is being released, I discovered for sure that it will be out sometime this year (yes I would make a very shitty PI). He has completed the album though, so let’s hope for sooner rather than Christmas. In the meantime, Porter’s Soundcloud has been updated with two new singles, which I have been losing my mind over! The latest of which, Sad Machine, was posted online yesterday and is the first ‘radio single’ attempt from the album. Although Sea of Voices is bloody beautiful, I think a lot of people would cringe at hearing it on air. You can have a listen on his Soundcloud or purchase the tracks on iTunes. If you’re not a fan of his lives sets, neither am I! Yet another reason why his music appeals to me so much, and I’m sure you’ll feel the same. Here’s what he had to say about Sad Machine:

I’d used Vocaloid as the vocals for several of the songs on Worlds, and then the idea of a duet between a lonely robot girl and the human boy who encounters her occurred to me. I didn’t have much time before I had to turn in the entire album, so I just sang the male parts. I wanted something that felt distantly sad, a little cute, surreal, hopeful, and maybe somehow evocative of fiction?

 

Good Kisser // @Usher

Today is the exclusive global video premiere and release of Usher’s new single Good Kisser. And yes, that does mean that we can expect an eighth studio album from this eight-time Grammy winner towards the end of the year. One can now make sense of…

Here’s what’s kickstarting my day. Happy Tuesday!

Gorgon-City-Here-For-You

Gorgon City ft Laura Welsh – Here for you (Listen)

I immediately became a fan of these North Londoners the first time I heard “Real” last year. They make the kind of music I would listen to all day, every day. I call it life music! Have a listen through their Soundcloud page when you have a chance. Here’s their latest single “Here for you” with vocals from Laura Welsh.
