Mija, Icona Pop, and VÉRITÉ join forces for pride-dedicated ‘You Don’t Know About Me’You Dont Know About Me The Aclu Remi

Firm advocate of the LGBTQ community, the ever-so-colorful Mija, with the help of Icona Pop and VÉRITÉ, has delivered a brand new remix of Ella Vos’s “You Don’t Know About Me,” in honor of Pride Month. Dubbed “The ACLU Remix,” Mija has pledged to donate the entirety of the profits to the nonprofit American Civil Liberties Union.

Originally released on Vos’ 2017 Words I Never Said album, the track’s lyrics exquisitely convey the change and acceptance-oriented message that is so central to the LGBTQ community at large: “This is my body, this is my war / We can’t wait ‘till you come around.”

Listen to Love Thy Brother’s remix of Phantoms’ ethereal ‘Just A Feeling’

This post was originally published on this site

 

Phantoms’ single, “Just A Feeling,” is more than a mere feeling — it’s an enveloping, laid-back house vibe. Perhaps the crown jewel of Phantoms’ recent eponymous EP, “Just A Feeling” pairs singer/songwriter Vérité’s buttery vocals with the track’s seamless meld of deeper house elements and a punctuating, pumping bass line. The song has been on somewhat of a captivating popularity streak since its identification as one of the EP’s strongest offerings, navigating the chart positions of Billboard’s Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart, where it rests at the 10th spot.

A track that’ll inspire an insatiable desire for more of its house essence, “Just A Feeling” has received a gorgeous remix from Canadian duo, Love Thy Brother. A slower, more intimate sister to “Just A Feeling,” the Love Thy Brother take is a sensual, rhythmic re-imagination that proves complementary to Phantoms’ original, if not more transfixing.

New Music Friday: Julia Michaels, Ralph Felix and the songs in between

This post was originally published on this site

New Music Friday julia m

Song of the week:
Julia Michaels — ‘Issues’
You already know Julia’s music because she’s written half the amazing songs of the last three years, but the story goes that it was only when she wrote ‘Issues’ that she thought about reviving her career as a solo artist. ‘Issues’ is produced by Stargate and Benny Blanco, which explains part of its tremendousness, but the spotlight’s totally on Julia here. (There’s an EP coming in a couple of months.)

Wrong of the week:
Ralph Felix and SDJM — ‘The Heat (I Wanna Dance With Somebody)’
If you thought 2017 was looking like it might be better than 2016, here’s your first solid evidence that it might actually be worse. It takes something pretty special to out-shit a tropical cover of Roxette’s ‘Listen To Your Heart’ — this week’s second most terrible song — but ‘Ralph’ has really pulled it out of the bag with this pathetic Whitney Houston rework.

Additional notes:

  • Remember when Grace Mitchell released that totally extraordinary futurepop song ‘Jitter’ in 2014? Well it’s all gone a bit wrong. We get what she’s doing with ‘Kids (Ain’t All Right)’, but that doesn’t mean it’s a good idea.
  • Bright Sparks, the duo who guest on and wrote the new Tiesto single, are worth keeping your eye on in 2017 — there’s an EP on the way.
  • That Vérité single’s a corker, right?
