Jessie Ware


(Island UK)

Sounds Like: A thrillingly refreshing new voice from London, whose elegant pipes are perfectly paired with both modern beats and retro-soul guitars and synths.

Free Association: This debut’s a shocker, catchy and expertly produced with variety.

For Fans Of: Little Dragon x Katy B + Kate Bush, Jessie J minus dumb outfits and faces.



Matthew Dear


(Ghostly Int’l)

Sounds Like: The Texas-born, Detroit-raised DJ and performer’s follow-up to the stellar Black City is just as hypnotic and danceable. Quirky beats, infectious rhythms.

Free Association: He doesn’t even make us wait long, but the wait was totally worth it.

For Fans Of: Frankie Knuckles x Small Black, Hot Chip + David Bowie, avant pop.



Wild Nothing


(Captured Tracks)
