Alphalove (aka Alex & Chris) are a pair of music producers from the UK, who signed with Insanity Records (Sony UK) in 2020.
The pair teamed up with internet sensation Conor Maynard to create this remake of a Luther Vandross classic, modernising it for the year 2021.
The EDM/dance take on the track brings something completely new to it and features a series of classic EDM traits, from the piano-led lead to the thumping basslines and drum patterns; it’s a song I’ve had on repeat for days and one you can’t get enough of. It’s the perfect end to the week for #FeelGoodFriday!
No official music video exists at present, so for now you’ll just have to enjoy the lyric video below.
What are your thoughts of this dance duo’s remake of a classic? Do you have a #FeelGoodFriday track to recommend us? Please leave your thoughts or song suggestions in a comment or via social media.
Brunswick is the moniker of a 19-year-old up-and-comer, who is making some seriously edgy, fusion music. This single, ‘Know No Better’ merges R&B and hip hop with rock and pop to create a unique blend, self-described as “Rhythm & Grunge”. It’s a great sound that is almost like crossing G-Eazy with Conor Maynard and topping it off with some Nirvana; it really is something special.
Very little is known about this artist right now, other than from his Instagram and SoundCloud pages, but a little mystery isn’t always a bad thing.
No music video has been released for the track yet, but as soon as one emerges, we’ll keep you updated.

Conor Maynard has recently been hard at work, recording a whole bunch of covers for a special album released, cleverly titled, Covers.
The YouTube sensation found fame by uploading cover videos to YouTube, and as such, continues to do so.
This version of Shawn Mendes‘ Number 1 hit, is stripped back and ballad-like – it’s a beautiful stance on an incredible track and has given a different feel entirely. This re-imagining, also goes to show just how amazing Conor Maynard‘s voice is…and also, how much we need a new originals album from him!
What are your thoughts on this cover? Do you like Conor Maynard’s voice? How badly do you want to hear a new originals album from him? Please share the link and post your own #MellowMonday choices in a comment below.

We’ve got two new songs for you this week; one which is already doing well in the charts and one song which will be released in the next few weeks – and I’m predicting big things for it!
Conor Maynard’s latest song, ‘Talking About’ sees the return of the YouTube success-story, with this 90s garage-inspired pop song. I have to say, the tune itself does sound a bit like a remix, rather than an actual release, however I think this works and for that reason, makes it an interesting song; it will surely be another hit under his belt! ‘Talking About’ is released 19th April 2015.

The second song I’m loving now is a slightly more chilled offering from Marlon Roudette. ‘When The Beat Drops Out’ has a subtle quality to it, with the use of steel drums, giving it a unique identity. Whilst it’s not the most obvious pop song, it managed to peak inside the Top 10 and that’s got to be down to it’s individuality.
