JESSIE WARE – SAY YOU LOVE ME //
Jessie Ware’s first offering from her highly anticipated new album came in the form of the beautifully crafted ‘Tough Love’ single which has just provided Jessie her highest ever charting single to date.
Next up, set to repeat ‘Tough Love’s success – and then some – is the new single ‘Say You Love Me’. Written towards the end of the writing sessions in New York and with the production skills of BenZel, ‘Say You Love Me’ is one of the most beautifully yearning love songs you’ll hear all year.
The new album continues to draw on the suave, svelte palette of synths and bass heard on Jessie’s debut album ‘Devotion’, now combined with more confident choruses and lush arrangements. Jessie’s stunning vocal is brought to the fore – which are none more prevalent than on ‘Say You Love Me’.
ALEX METRIC – HEART WEIGHS A TON FEAT. STEFAN STORM //
Equally adept at grinding out hard-hitting techno as he is reworking bona-fide popstars, Alex Metric has consistently showcased a versatility and depth throughout his career which shows no sign of slowing down with the release of ‘Heart Weighs A Ton’ out 28th September via OWSLA/Atlantic.
His latest offering ‘Heart Weighs A Ton’, combines the best of both worlds: retaining enough bite for the club whilst offering up a huge chorus aimed squarely at the charts. It’s an unashamedly epic track, with a big house piano riff holding the rhythm down, before a mammoth line cascades over the vocal hook from Stefan Storm.
With remixes coming from Laidback Luke, Etherwood and Friend Within, plus more to be announced, the complete ‘Heart Weighs A Ton’ package will continue to push Metric’s distinctive sound into new and exciting territory.
TC – EVERYTHING FOR A REASON //
“Everything For A Reason” is the new single from super-talented singer, songwriter and DnB producer TC (aka Tom Casswell), his first since signing to 3 Beat. Written, sung and performed by TC, the track was mixed alongside Neil McLennan, best known for his work with The Prodigy.
“Everything For A Reason” will make its debut on Radio 1 as Zane Lowe’s ‘Future Exclusive’. TC first grabbed mainstream attention with “Get Down Low”, a massive club mover that became a festival anthem in 2013 and was released in December of that year via Skrillex’s OWSLA label. Zane Lowe made the track his ‘Hottest Record’, 1Xtra hammered it and Radio 1 play-listed it.
That success was followed with “Make U Bounce” a song that TC wrote for DJ Fresh that featured Little Nikki. “Make U Bounce” made the A-list playlist at Capital FM, Radio 1 and 1Xtra and gave TC his first Top 10 hit in the UK.
TC is also the go to remix talent for artists as diverse as Rihanna, Example, Cee Lo Green, Tinie Tempah, Daft Punk, Duke Dumont, Julio Bashmore and Disclosure. He’s also collaborated with Sub-Focus and Pendulum. Most recently, TC has remixed Jess Glynne’s solo debut hit “Right Here” and supported Zomboy on his US tour.
