Disclosure – Omen ft. Sam Smith

We can’t lie and say we weren’t uber excited when this one popped up! After the success of ‘Latch’, it’s easy to assume that the Disclosure x Sam Smith mix is a match made in heaven. ‘Omen’ really does represent a maturing in style for the UK electronic duo.

Sam Smith – Leave Your Lover (Motez Remix)

When listening to Sam Smith’s album last year I was struck by the simplicity of ‘Leave Your Lover’ – and surprised this didn’t become the next single as a natural progression from ‘Stay With Me’.

Tourist – I Can’t Keep Up (feat. Will Heard)

2014 is most definitely going to be the year we see Tourist hit the big time. After the huge Sonnentanz last year, Will Heard hasn’t been up to much so it’s nice to hear more from the UK singer-songwriter! ‘I Can’t Keep Up’ is a slow burning house track, focusing heavily on Will’s vocals. It … Continue reading
