Chance The Rapper instagram teaser

Chance The Rapper has teased some new music! He took to Instagram to give us a taste of what he’s been working on, and it’s sounding incredible.

He switches things up on this one with funky, vocoder distorted vocals along and channels some reggae influence that sounds much different from what we’re used to hearing from Chance, and I cannot wait for the official release. Chance also recently confirmed he has a collab with John Mayer and wants to work with Bruno Mars in tweets below. Stay tuned for more and enjoy!

ZHU Drops 4-Track 'stardustexhalemarrakechdreams' EP + Video For Relaunch Of Spotify's ElectroNOW As 'mint'

ZHU stardustexhalemarrakechdreams

Suprise! ZHU has just unleashed a new 4-track EP titled stardustexhalemarrakechdreams.

With a style that brings the more ghoulish elements of underground sound to the light, ZHU has captivated listeners around the world since he stepped into the industry back in 2014. Along with his boundary-pushing signature, the mysterious producer has never shied away from making statements through his branding. Just this year he called out a handful of mainstream artists in a video teasing one of his newest singles called “Nightcrawler,” hosted a mysterious Blacklizt warehouse party, shared downright unsettling videos for dark singles “Intoxicate” and “Dreamz” - the list goes on from there. 

Today ZHU is back with another unique music rollout. He and Spotify are teaming up for the re-launch of their popular electroNOW playlist, which will now be known as mint.

"The launch of our flagship electronic playlist, mint, represents the unique pieces of the culture and the global audience that lives and breathes it," said Austin Kramer, Global Head of Electronic. "Electronic music is incredibly diverse and ever-fresh. mint is the condition. Having ZHU a part of this launch was a natural fit as he embodies the culture, and has been introducing undeniable style.  Once you see the videos on mint, you'll get it. There is no turning back now for dance music on Spotify and in the industry." – Austin Kramer, Global Programming Head of mint

"ZHU is a pioneer so it only made sense when Spotify was choosing to rebrand their dance platform that they would come to him to lead the movement. Everything ZHU does is mint." - Jake Udell, ZHU Manager

To go along with Spotify's exciting playlist rebrand, ZHU has dropped his intense stardustexhalemarrakechdreams EP. The producer packs a wide array of sounds into a few short tracks, from the experimental, extraterrestrial “Stardust” to the bass-heavy collaboration with Nero “Dreamz,” which the artist teased nearly two months ago. 

Three vertical music videos accompany the release, available for viewing exclusively via the Spotify app in the Mint playlist. Once again ZHU breaks all of the rules with these visual components. He presents disturbing imagery and stark color schemes that demand attention despite their sinister nature.

In his usual fashion, the producer is keeping details on his next album under wraps. After this, we can’t wait to see what his forthcoming project holds. Check out the EP below and enjoy!

Watch Lorde Team Up With VEVO To Reimagine Songs From ‘Melodrama’

Lorde Melodrama acoustic

It’s been roughly two months since Lorde dropped her 11-track sophomore album, Melodrama. The offering certainly had big shoes to fill after her debut project, Pure Heroine, made waves nearly half a decade ago in 2013. Despite speculation that Lorde’s latest couldn’t up to her stunning first project, Melodrama has been revered by fans and critics alike, presenting a more cultivated sound dripping with intricate production and passionate vocals. 

Linking up with VEVO as well as various instrumentalists and backup singers, Lorde recently performed a handful of Melodrama tracks in a minimalist, captivating setting. Utilizing subtle instrumentals and production, these hypnotizing, unvarnished versions of the songs allow the power of Lorde’s voice to truly shine. The songs performed include "Hard Feelings/Loveless," "Homemade Dynamite," "The Louvre," "Sober," "Supercut," and "Writer in the Dark," and each brings slightly different elements to the table to maintain a compelling overall vibe. Check out the six performances (and some behind-the-scenes) below and enjoy!
