Say Lou Lou
Everything We Touch

A song about “guilty pleasures”: swirling soundscapes, above-the-clouds harmonies.

A cold r&b-hinting solid pop track with production coming from Rhye.

MO

90s are back. And girl bands are back with pop song choking on RnB references. Oldie but goodie.

Gorgon City feat Jennifer Hudson
Go All Night

Soothing vocals combine with the funky bassline to produce a 90s house sound perfect for those years.

Katy B
Crying For No Reason

A ballad that threatens to blossom into a disco song but never does. To die for.
