Little Mix’s ‘Touch’ won last night’s 2017 Popjustice Twenty Quid Music Prize! Here’s what happened…

This post was originally published on this site

Congratulations to Little Mix! A combination of ‘Touch’, sixty judges and a large amount of booze means that the band’s prize of twenty quid (cash) will be on its way to Kensington High Street later today.

How did it all happen?

WELL. Last night in a London pub this year’s twelve shortlisted songs…

…went head to head. In most rounds two songs were picked at random, their relative merits were ‘debated’, it then went to a vote and, finally, the losing song went out. We do this at every year’s Twenty Quid judging — it’s unfair, unpredictable and basically very funny.

Judges had each received a special (not very special) judging pack.

Each table of judges was also named after a former Twenty Quid winner, which was supposed to be a significant element in terms of how one of the rounds would work, but we forgot to do that in the end.

Also, for the first time, each shortlisted song was represented in real life by a t-shirt-wearing judge whose job it was to speak up when needed.

ANYWAY.

The first step was for the judges to vote for the last year’s worst British pop single (a good way to provide context for the rest of the night) and, as is traditional at the Twenty Quid prize night, to boot off one shortlisted song without any debate or discussion.

Let’s just say it wasn’t a great start for Ed Sheeran.

Moving on, in last night’s second round the randomly selected pair of songs presented a very early upset.

(Earlier this week, each of the judges submitted their favourite song in a secret email poll — in that poll both ‘Touch’ and ‘Rockabye’ were really popular choices, so there was a lot of shouting when it turned out one of them would go out early.)

As the evening continued we discussed pop from almost every angle…

…although some criteria seemed more valid than others.

To organise our thoughts, pros and cons were listed on massive sheets of high quality foam board.

During the course of the evening, judges also found a winner for the inaugural Carly Rae Jepsen International Pop Single Of The Year award, the year’s best non-British pop single. Judges were asked to choose one of the three most popular songs from an earlier open poll.

The Carly Rae Jepsen International Pop Single Of The Year award went to Lorde’s ‘Green Light’.

At one point, the room was split into three sections using hazard tape due to a poorly-thought-through ‘mechanic’.

There was also a moment when one portion of the room decided to stage a coup and campaign for the last-minute inclusion of Dua Lipa’s ‘New Rules’, which let’s face it should have been on the shortlist but there we go.

This whole debacle was overruled because the Twenty Quid Music Prize is no place for anarchy. The good news is that Dua Lipa is a talented artist with a long career, and plenty of future Twenty Quid nominations, ahead of her.

One by one songs fell away from the shortlist, leading to an extremely lively three chair challenge segment best described, in the cold light of day, as total carnage. But it brought us to the final vote.

Little Mix won by a significant margin, loads of confetti cannons went off, some people cheered, and the evening came to an end. It was a good result for Little Mix, of course, but most people seemed to agree that second place for Steps was, in 2017, something of a victory in itself.

THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH to all the judges who came along last night and made the event such a brilliant shambles, and well done to Little Mix. But also well done to everyone who was on the shortlist — even Ed Sheeran — because they all made great singles. And great singles is what pop’s all about, really, isn’t it?

Lost Kings ft. Tinashe – Quit You (Midnight Kids Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Following their hit, “Phone Down,” Los Angeles producers Lost Kings have enlisted R&B queen Tinashe for their latest release, “Quit You,” in which Tinashe’s vocal expertise is backed by an upbeat rhythm. Many artists, including Party Pupils, Wuki, and ToWonder, have already remixed the anthem – each one imbuing different creative styles into the original.

Midnight Kids have taken the latest stab at remixing “Quit You,” showcasing their signature wildly addictive indie progressive house sound. Although they are currently an underground act, Midnight Kids are gaining momentum from previous remixes such as their take on Matthew Koma‘s “Hard To Love” as well as Zedd and Alessia Cara‘s “Stay.”

Kaskade dives into future bass in his remix of Tinashe’s ‘Flame’

This post was originally published on this site

The breadth of Kaskade’s production capabilities never ceases to amaze the electronic music community. Ryan Raddon been experimenting in the lower frequencies as of late, as seen in his haunting, left-field “Beneath With Me”  collaboration with deadmau5 and the eclectic, Flume-like “Let It Out.”

Keeping in this vein, Kaskade presents a powerful remix to Tinashe’s hit “Flame,” which he begins by enhancing the original’s sentimentality through adding touches of piano chords that play up Tinashe’s vocals. As the track progresses, Raddon drives the track into a more festival-friendly direction with hearty bass and danceable snare rolls. Kaskade’s revision aligns well with the original production’s aesthetic, and will likely draw a brand new wave of fans to his legion from an entirely different side of music.

Lost Kings Release New Song With Tinashe, “Quit You”

This post was originally published on this site

Lost Kings have been rocketing in popularity over the past year; and after signing to Disruptor Records, the home of The Chainsmokers and Vanic, you can expect their rise to hit an absolute fever pitch in 2017.

Their first single of the new year is a radio-ready single titled “Quit You,” with featured vocals from none other than Tinashe. The new single doesn’t have a typical drop, instead opting to really follow the verse-chorus-verse structure of a typical pop song.

Lost Kings’ foray into pop music aligns well with many other producers this year, and it brings up wider questions of crossover appeal in EDM and mainstream radio music. But that’s a discussion for another time.

This isn’t the first time Tinashe has worked in the EDM sphere, having previously released a collab with Marshmello and Far East Movement, and it won’t be the last (Jauz x Diplo x Tinashe on deck).
