Marshmallow x Lil Peep – ‘Spotlight’

Electronic dance music producer Marshmello has released a new song titled ‘Spotlight’, featuring vocals from the recently deceased rapper and singer, Lil Peep, who passed away late last year (2017). The pair had been previously working on the track before the rapper passed.

Marshmello has previously done music collaborations with Omar LinX and Ookay, as well as remixing popular songs by Jack Ü and Zedd. His song ‘Alone’, made it onto the US Billboard Hot 100 chart in January 2017.

“Gus will live forever through his music and that is something we should all be extremely thankful for.” – Marshmello

This song oozes a rap-grunge vibe with Lil Peep admitting his feelings for someone, accompanied by dark chords. The use of light guitar riffs, paired with the melancholy dark vibe of the beat is a sweet juxtaposition, which is extremely satisfying to listen to. Although there is no official music video with either of the individuals in it, so to speak, the image of Peep with a flickering spotlight on him, is haunting yet also artistic. Paying homage to the rapper in this way, regarding the song’s cover art, in my opinion, is a nice gesture.


‘Spotlight’ is on iTunes for downloading now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/spotlight/1332776796?i=1332776955



Cadell – ‘Create A Career’

Rapper Cadell, is a UK Grime MC from Bow located in East London who was born 17 January 1997. His first mixtape was released back in 2016, titled Hotline, as well as his first debut album, 3 Is The New 6. The rapper is most commonly known for being the younger brother of one of the “godfathers” of grime; Wiley.

‘Create A Career’ (which was originally titled ‘Do It’) is currently his most listened to song on his Spotify reaching over 36,000 listens, with the album it is featured on, L.O.N.D.O.N (Lots Of N****s Don’t Observe Nature), being released at the start of this year (2018).

The song opens with a slightly electronica feel to it and jumping, jittering vocals which are swiftly followed up with a deep bass line. The lyrics are used as a tool for the rapper as he expresses his thoughts and feelings about the growth of his career. The fast-paced rhythm, accompanied with the continual bass and synth backing, makes for a great blood-pumping grime tune.


‘Create A Career’ can also be downloaded from iTunes now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/create-a-career/1330604716?i=1330604722

The Knocks are an electronic music duo from New York, consisting of Ben “B-Roc” Ruttner and James “JPatt” Patterson. Their name actually comes from when the pair made beats in their apartment and would get “the knocks” from their neighbours, to keep the noise down.

They’ve earned recognition for their productions and remixes for a whole host of bands and artists, including Ellie GouldingBritney SpearsThe 1975Jack ÜFoster The People and Haim.

They’ve since gone on to record a string of singles and their debut album, 55, which features an incredible array of acts, including Alex NewellSt Lucia and Walk The Moon.

‘Collect My Love’, which features Alex Newell‘s trademark vocals, is one of the singles they released from the album and it’s got some serious funk going on – it’s reminiscent of Daft Punk‘s ‘Get Lucky’. The video for the song is pretty quirky too – it’s got that urban feel but with an air of “getting ready for a night out”; it’s just good fun!

What do you think of these guys? Has it given you that #FeelGoodFriday vibe? Please share this link on your social media sites!

Have a great weekend everyone!

#WildCardWednesday: Jack Ü – ‘Where Are Ü Now’ featuring Justin Bieber

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.
