One of this year’s great debut artists, VÉRITÉ, releases arguably her best track to date in “Heartbeat”. A demo version of the track was around earlier this year, but the New York up-and-comer has cleaned it up in anticipation of her Echo EP. Drums, synths, hooks, and of course vocals, are all spot on.
You know your Tuesday is going to be good when a new Magic Tape is released. The Magician is churning out the best mix-tapes in the game right now (see Magic Tape 45 if you missed it) and this is the latest one. Solid from start to finish, beginning to end, top to bottom.
RAC (André Allen Anjos) visited thatbeatjuice, heard Act!on’s remix of “Ghost Of A Chance”, said to himself, “Wow this song is good”, and had to make a mix of his own.e
This is, however, one of the rare times in the history of music when I openly endorse someone else’s remix over RAC’s. Just think Act!on’s is superior and that RAC’s lagged quite a bit in the middle of the song. Either way though, they’re both good and the last minute of this version (from 3:00 on) is absolutely killer.
Last time we heard from these guys they had just dropped the excellent, “Curtains”. Now they’re back with their latest offering, “None Of My Friends”.
To date, Last Lynx hasn’t varied too much in their sound, but that isn’t a bad thing. I actually enjoy their consistency quite a bit. With every release you know that you’re going to get some laid-back, melody-driven pop — I’ll take that any day.

The Swindon native has just released her track “Silly Little Things” and it has taken on quite a different sound than the charming acoustic version that has been around for a couple years now. No matter, the beat is booming, the hooks are still catchy, and the song is ready to be a full-on pop hit.
