Kaytranada‘s second full-length album BUBBA has arrived. Following the experimental producer’s Polaris-winning 2016 debut album 99.9%, the sophomore LP encompasses 15 features from artists including Pharrell Williams, Kali Uchis, Mick Jenkins, Tinashe, Estelle, Charlotte Day Wilson, Masego, GoldLink, SiR, and more.
Earlier this week, Kaytranada gave listeners a taste of the new studio album with the delivery of single, “10%” with Kali Uchis. BUBBA builds on the Montreal act’s collaborative expertise in molding eclectic R&B infused productions—showcasing a variety of electronic nuances that highlight the best of each vocal feature. The LP also sees Kaytranada join forces with “DYSFUNCTIONAL” collaborator VanJess again.
It’s been almost four years since Kaytranada released his debut album, 99.9%, though he’s spent that time releasing plenty of one-offs and collaborations to hold his fans over. But this past Monday, the Haiti-born and Montreal-based producer sprung a little surprise on us by announcing that his sophomore album, BUBBA, would be out … More »

There was a time when Tinashe’s momentum felt unstoppable. “2 On,” the R&B singer and dancer’s 2014 breakthrough single, was one of those hits so contagious that Drake couldn’t stop himself from dropping an unofficial remix. Aquarius, the major-label debut album that followed, generated rave reviews. Despite the trendy Mustardwave pops and snaps … More »
Indonesia’s premier electronic music festival, the Djakarta Warehouse Project has solidified their lineup for the upcoming event, locking in final support from featured electronic artists Claptone, Krewella, and Cash Cash, a headlining performance from R&B star Tinashe, and a trickle of supporting names to top off the bill.
The festival returns to the city’s Jakarta International Expo over December 13-15, ensuing three days of immersive, unforgettable performances from more than artists. The phase three announcement introduces sets from artists like Brohug, Ghastly, Wiwek, and a back-to-back performance from trance extraordinaires Mark Sixma and Jordan Suckley.
Rounding out the phase three announcement, elrow‘s themed ‘Rowmudas Triangle’ stage takeover reveals their slate of high-energy, international techno and house bookings. The cheeky nautical themed party is headlined by none other than the bird-masked mystique Claptone, and sharing the stage with Snatch! Records owner Riva Starr, and resident DJ Mario Biani.
In celebration of their 11th edition, local event promoter Ismaya Live have seen the exponential growth of the festival since 2008. Starting off initially as an indoor warehouse event, the Djakarta Warehouse Project has grown into one of Asia’s largest electronic music festivals, with no signs of slowing down.

After a turbulent and not-especially-productive run on RCA Records — or at least productive in the years after she released her great 2014 debut Aquarius — the LA R&B queen Tinashe is now on her own, getting ready to release a new independent album called Songs For You. A couple of weeks ago, … More »
It seemed like it was over for Tinashe. The gifted LA R&B stylist had released the enormously promising debut album Aquarius in 2014, and she’d landed a big hit with the lithe, clubby “2 On.” But then, RCA, Tinashe’s label, had kept her on the shelf for years before releasing the … More »
The premiere of Dancing With The Stars’ 27th season (wow!) aired tonight on ABC. We care because Tinashe is one of this season’s contestants. On tonight’s episode, she danced jive alongside professional dancer Brandon Armstrong to a cover of Meghan Trainor’s “I’m A Lady” and earned the highest score of the … More »
Despite containing a handful of bangers and some strategically selected guests, Tinashe’s long-awaited sophomore album Joyride did not generate a hit. It just wasn’t as good as Aquarius, the album that landed her all over the radio with “2 On” and crystallized her wispy, liquid R&B aesthetic. More »
