Nashville rising stars Cherub have wooed their way into the hearts and minds of many since we premiered their breakout Man of the Year EP well over two years ago. Jason and Jordan continue to deliver an eclectic blend of indie/dance/electronic music that is further enhanced when the duo perform in-front of a live audience. With 2014 already yielding a sold out nationwide headlining tour, a gauntlet of upcoming summer festival appearances, and official signing to Columbia Records, the fella's unleash their debut major label artist album Year Of The Caprese. Aside from the revived fan favorite "Doses & Mimosas", we are treated to a collection of infectiously catchy tunes featuring sexually charged innuendos, funky melodies, and even a collaboration with Big Gigantic frontman Dominic Lalli on "The Night", showcasing a natural progression in talent throughout while also oozing of summertime vibes.
The album release also coincides with the humorous new revamped official music video for the lead single "Doses & Mimoses" bringing their iconic single to life in a whole new fashion; this follows up their breakout music video fo the same song shot in New York here.

Some artists choose to hide their identity from the publics eye, but today we have an exciting new artist who's even kept their artist name a mystery… at least for now. The artist made it clear that letting the music "speak for itself" was a top priority before anyone grew attached to the name or image. With that being said, we received a groove filled dance track with this unknown vocalist singing the lyrics to various Outkast's popular hits. The melodic deep house beat compliments the silky smooth vocals perfectly, creating one infectiously delightful track to play multiple times. Such mystery causes an unreal amount of curiosity, is this a completely new artist or some already established act? It sounds like it could have been produced by someone like Disclosure or Perseus.
Who do you think this song could be produced by? Leave a comment below.

Chicago to LA electronic trio Krewella has been making waves since their Play Hard EP last fall and dominating all the electronic festivals including Ultra and EDC. They have now have released “Live For The Night”, their first single off their debut major label album release on Columbia Records, set for a Fall release. The synths, bass and melodies are so much more beefy then anything they have previously released creating a heavier more agressive sound. This song manages to brings their live show energy through to song form. Love the new direction. It’s safe to say this is the groups new “Alive”. Enjoy.
We have also included a lyric video for the song shot in Chicago at Spring Awakening Music Festival a few weeks back. You can also see a few cameos of the new Thissongissick Hat getting worn by Rain Man and some of the Krewella Krew.
