Best New Tracks
|BEST NEW TRACKS: QUINN XCII - STRAIGHTJACKET|
In 2016, new artist QUINN XCII released his EP, Bloom, and now he’s back with his new single, Straightjacket. It’s a catchy and very bouncy track that will put a little pep in your step! It would fit in nicely on pop radio, which makes us think that 2017 is going to be a good year for this Michigan native.
|BEST NEW TRACKS: MAKO & MORGAN PAGE - REAL LIFE|
Los Angeles based duo MAKO is destined for a radio-friendly hit with their brand new single, Real Life. MAKO members Alex Seaver and Logan Light collaborated with Morgan Page on the track, and they ended up created an uplifting, fun and memorable three minutes of pure indie pop fun that is bound to grab them some deserved attention.
|BEST NEW TRACKS: TSORF - HOLD ON TO ME|
New Zealand-based artist Tsorf (pronounced like surf) is here with some downtempo goodness on her latest track, Hold on to Me. Her ethereal vocals are simply magical on this third single, and they glide over pulsating 80s’-inspired synths and subtle atmospherics beautifully.
|BEST NEW TRACKS: SHY GIRLS - WHY I LOVE|
Dan Vidmar, the artist with the moniker of Shy Girls has left a lot of ladies and gentlemen drooling. His lyrics carry so much soul that make even the coldest of hearts want to feel. His latest pop ballad, Why I Love, opens up haunting and devastating tone that is memorable due to the Vidmar’s vocals. I also feel that it’s a perfect track for the season.
|BEST NEW TRACKS: GEMS - BLOW OUT THE LIGHT|
Relationships are mega hard, especially when you know the end is coming. Sometimes we let things go on for too long, but when the final straw is pulled it’s time to blow out the light as the duo GEMS writes about in their dreamy pop single, Blow Out The Light.
|BEST NEW TRACKS: TKAY MAIDZA - CARRY ON (VASCO REMIX)|
Lolz at first I was all like, Omgee, Ice-T is back in the game Woop Woop. It took me a second to zap out of my buzz to realize it was Killer Mike and Tkay Maidza sounding so fresh and so fierce thanks to the adderall infused rework of producer Vasco. The production is quite fitting as it adds the playfulness that the original version lacked.
|BEST NEW TRACKS: TEN FE - BORN SLIPPY .NUXX (UNDERWORLD COVER)|
Holy freeeeeak! Talk about a blast from the past (I guess this is where my age really shows). Alternative indie band take on a 90s cult favorite track, Born Slippy. Originally released by British band Underworld as a B-side, the song gained popularity with the not so very well known movie “Trainspotting”...twenty-two years later and we now have this....
|BEST NEW TRACKS: POLLARI & LIL PEEP - FANTASY|
Without missing a step Atlanta rapper Pollari releases yet another ambitious fire of a track featuring Lil Peep. Produced by Brobak, Fantasy carries an addictive beat that will be sure to leave listeners in a hazy state of mind crying out for more, much like the ladies on the song’s artwork.
