Chris Lake is a New Zealand born pop/soul singer and musician. He is a charming guy who knows how to entertain and is one to see live to get the full experience. Now based in Melbourne, Australia, Chris is set to take the music world by storm with his infectious personality, excellent guitarship and catchy songs. Absolute For Love is his first single and we quite like the video too. Absolute For Love is out now!
It took a while for me to get into this song but it was worth the wait. This is a fabulous song and the additional vocals by Justin Timberlake adds to it rather nicely. Now it is good to hear a disco song in this day and age of EDM mania. Turn up the volume, dance because Love Never Felt So Good!
I have to say her butt is looking bigger and bigger but Nicki Minaj has definitely delivered an EDM pop/rap gem with The Night Is Still Young. I can hear shades Ariana Grande’s Love Me Harder in the music but it is still enjoyable.
Leona is back with a fantastic track. This is pretty interesting as it fuses elements from House, Garage, Drum and Bass and Pop that only the Brits seem to do with ease. All we can say is that it’s a brilliant song with amazing vocals, sung brilliantly and with genuine passion. We love it.. A summer anthem!
Check out our friends Nightflite!
Hop aboard Melbourne band Nightflite and be taken back to the future where 1985 meets the 21st Century. A time where modern soft synths recreate sounds from their hardware cousins, but also add the quality and panache of 21st Century digital technology.
Nightflite is a band that discards hipster pretentiousness but deliver pure power pop vocals reminiscent of Bon Jovi and Foreigner. Their musicianship is stunning with glorious guitars, sexy synths and vivacious vocals. We’ve known about them for a while and feel 2015 will be their year. You can find them at:
It is not very often we come across a singer that just blows us away but Dan Woodhouse is one such singer. His song 21,000 is poignant, emotional and excellent.
This is an original song written by Dan to highlight the plight of worldwide hunger. You have to watch and share this song, it is simply brilliant.
They’ve been described as an electronic trio who use elements of r&b and 90s house music. “King” is their first number one single and was released in March. We love its bouncy groove, strong vocals and synth pads.
The single was also top ten in many countries including Australia, Austria and Germany.
“King” is out now on the Polydor label.
The Hip-Hop community is buzzing with female rappers taking centre stage and crossing over into the pop charts. Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea are probably the most famous female rappers at the moment. However, we think their dominant status is being challenged by a relatively new artist Dej Loaf (very interesting name indeed).
Dej comes from Detroit, released her first mixtape 3 years ago and is currently signed to Columbia Records. We’ve listened to all her tracks and the best of the lot is “We Be On It” taken from her album Sell Sole. The song is incredibly melodic, mixed with a serious beat and sports the line “She a little thug, she be rapping like she 2Pac”. I wonder to whom she is referring? I think we’ll be hearing a lot more from this girl!
Here is a lovely infectious dance record that bypasses the usual cliches that riddles EDM at the momnent. Back & Forth is a bouncy tune that has lots of lovely synth blips and sounds and actually sounds brilliant sonically. We’ve had it on repeat at the Myhotmusic HQ!
So who are the Aston Shuffle? Well it’s not a dance made by Aston Villa fans who have only just begun to have something to dance about as they pull away from the relegation zone. In fact Aston Shuffle are Vance Musgrove and Mikah Freeman and they hail from Australia. They are joined by another antipodean, Elizabeth Rose , and the trio have conspired to produce one of the best dance records in a decade.
Graham Cochrane returns with the second part of the $300 studio challenge, which we are sharing here to encourage artists to delve into the world of recording thanks to truly affordable gear.
In this episode Graham tackles the recording of guitars and bass and is a fascinating video. Get on it!
