Australia overnight superstar Flume has been keeping relatively quiet in terms of new music, besides his remix of Sam Smith’s “Lay Me Down” and his single apart of What So Not on "Gemini". Well today we get the first new original from him since his Drop The Game EP with Chet Faker.
This new single “Some Minds” features the vocals from Andrew Wyatt of Miike Snow which acts as the perfect collaboration of sounds. Flume provides an incredible relatively tame signature sounding song until just after the 3 minute mark when he proceeds to drop an unexpected bass heavy section that provides the perfect edge to the song you had no idea it was missing.
The video was done in partnership with Sydney Opera House where they were granted exclusive permission to shoot this visually stunning video. We see Flume as the star in the video along with some amazing choreographed dancers. This is released in cohesion of his sold out shows at the Sydney Opera House on May 29th and 30th.

The Weeknd has been fairly quiet since the release of his first true radio breakout “Earned It,” which was originally for the 50 Shades Of Grey soundtrack. Abel has now unleashed a brand new track titled “The Hills” alongside a music video that has been previously performed live, and was thought to be titled “Mood Music.”
The Weeknd never fails to deliver captivating music videos and this latest video is no exception. Eerie, dark visuals set the tone perfectly for the song. Abel emerges from a car crash, which then engulfs in a fiery explosion while he walks away from the crash as he offers his explicit, sensual crooning until he ultimately ends up in a strange bedroom with multiple women. Enjoy.
Eryn Allen Kane is an incredibly promising new female singer out of Chicago who has been featured on various songs with fellow Chicago artists like Chance the Rapper's infamous "Arthur's Song" or Towkio & Chance's "Heaven Only Knows." Well the young songstress has decided to break out on her own with her debut single "Have Mercy" which comes complete with a complimenting music video. The song is incredibly raw, filled with a minimalstic beat and a chorus of acapellas which sound like they could be her voice. We hear her impressive vocals range and truly feel the raw emotion she conveys. The song will most likely give you chills, also paired alongside a very gifting video focused around her in a dark room that adds an even more raw layer to the whole thing. I would expect to hear a lot more from this budding new singer. Enjoy!

Say hello to iSHi, a brand new producer in the game that we have very little information on. But this brand new producer just released his debut single which has a feature from Pusha T providing insanely fresh verses. The production is a bass fueled trap beat that sets the tone for the entire track and provides the perfect soundtrack for Pusha to drop some relentless verses throughout. The fact that iSHi has Pusha T featured on his debut single has us thinking this is some other major producer’s side project, or someone that has to be connected enough to pull that off. Either way, we are sold and expect big things to follow with iSHI. We are also treated to the tease of what looks like his new music video right at the end here. Listen below and watch the video. Enjoy!
