Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey – ‘The Middle’

Zedd‘s latest track, ‘The Middle’ features the American electronic music duo, Grey (aka brothers Kyle Trewarth and Michael Trewartha) and vocals by American country singer, Maren Morris.

This track may well have come out at the start of 2018 but 10 weeks later, it’s still at Number 10 in the UK charts, following the success of 2017’s Stay with Alessia Cara, however this track performed even better than that.

It’s a fun, uplifting track which has a very similar feel to ‘Stay’ with it’s combination of raw, powerful and digitised/vocoder vocals, atop a blend of 90s pop sensibilities and modern EDM vibes, making for a very distinctive sound.

The video is great fun too, with it’s stunning set and extravagant use of visual lighting. All-round this is just a fantastic piece of modern pop that will undoubtedly get stuck in everyone’s head; a true favourite of mine right now!


‘The Middle’ is on iTunes for downloading now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/the-middle/1336771022?i=1336771388



Lil Dicky – ‘Freaky Friday’ featuring Chris Brown

The second track this week is Lil Dicky‘s Number 1, smash hit, ‘Freaky Friday’, featuring guest vocals from Chris Brown.

The track itself is a combination of  hip hop, pop and comedy (think similar to The Lonely Island), centring on the film(s) of the same name and continually references Chris Brown himself, throughout.

Whilst this track is intentionally comedic and works hilariously with its accompanying music video, there’s no doubt about it that this is one heck of a catchy tune too; it’s easy to see how it’s managed to top the UK Charts!

The music video itself parodies the 2003 film Freaky Friday (starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan) and features cameos from Jimmy TatroEd SheeranDJ Khaled and Kendall Jenner. It’s a must-watch video but also, I defy anyone not to end up singing along to this earworm of a track!


‘Freaky Friday’ can also be downloaded from iTunes now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/freaky-friday-feat-chris-brown/1351005381?i=1351005400

#MellowMonday: Charlie Cunningham – ‘Minimum’

Charlie Cunningham is currently making big waves on Spotify with his debut album, Lines, but in particular, his single, ‘Minimum’ which is featured on many playlists across the platform.

After a string of EPs and gaining a steady following over the past two years, the London-based singer-songwriter released his debut album, at the beginning of this year.

There’s a hint of flamenco guitar playing but in a more placid way and his vocals are soulful and echoey; reminiscent of some 80s vocalists – Crowded House come to mind.

This guy has a lot to offer in a world of Tropical House, Trap and EDM – something different, honest and artistic – definitely one to watch.

No official video has been released, but we’ll update you if one emerges.

Jack Ü Banner

For this week’s #WildCardWednesday we bring you Jack Ü!

Jack Ü is an american duo, consisting of producing legends Skrillex (aka Sonny Moore) and Diplo (aka Thomas Pentz), who formed their side-project, Jack Ü, back in 2013. They are considered to be a mixture of Trap and Electronic Dance Music (EDM).

Their most recent release is ‘Where Are Ü Now’ which features guest vocals from Justin Bieber; whatever you think of Biebs, this track is awesome and his vocals are pretty remarkable. The track has actually had quite a positive response recently, peaking No. 5 in the UK charts, so far.

As of yet, the song has no official video, though on is in the works. However, Justin Bieber has released a home-made video for the track on his official YouTube account (see below).

Anyway, this tune is huge, so crank it loud – it’s killer!

What do you think of this song? Are you a fan? Was Justin Bieber a good choice of vocalist for the track? Please share our link on Twitter and Facebook.
