New Tracks: Kissey – “House” + “All Night” (Demo) & NYC Show – May 24

 

Swedish vocalist/producer Kissey keeps teasing us with these little leaks! The sassy and elegant young lass recently dropped a couple new gems on us and they’ve automatically been plugged into rotation.

“House” is a quirky 80′s/90′s style electro dance jam that’ll have you chanting the chorus in about two seconds flat.

The “All Night” demo is a dark, chilling ballad with sparse, haunting keys. This lady never fails to show us her marvelous range.

This Thursday, Kissey will be performing her first NYC show in three years and we can’t quite explain how giddy we are. Let’s just say she’s got some tricks up her sleeve that you’re not going to want to miss.

Global Compilation from the House of Gilles: Brownswood Electr*c

The guys from Brownswood have put together a new compilation album; Brownswood Electr*c will be available June 28th. In the international spirit of the World Cup season (shout out to the USA and England’s move to the next round), it features some of today’s most promising electronic artists from all over the globe, ranging from Estonia and Norway to Iceland. The Brownswood Electr*c album commemorates the music that occupies the grey areas, the sounds that blur the boundaries between so-called hip-hop, house, techno, and dubstep. This album, like every release, has the stamp of approval from Brownswood label owner and BBC Radio show host, Gilles Peterson. A sample of the tracks are streaming in the video above, and you can see the full track list after the jump.
