We're loving this track. The perfect start for that friday feeling. You may have heard it on the airwaves; but now we've got the video, and it's a good-un. Stunning landscape and imagery, oh and that dog?! Super fluffy.

British Super-producer Naughty Boy has just unleashed the stunning new video for his summer garage anthem ‘La La La’ featuring the gorgeously soulful vocals of Sam Smith.

Coming off the success of the hit track ‘Latch’ from Disclosure, Sam Smith is the second in an all-star cast of collaborators on Naughty Boy’s upcoming album Hotel Cabana.  The video was shot by Ian Pons Jewell in the picturesque location of Bolivia and retells the classic story of The Wizard of Oz.

After causing a storm online and heading straight to the 1xtra A-list, ‘La La La’ is being released through Virgin Records on May 19th.

And if you want that dog? You'll be glad to find out that we're pretty sure the breed is called a Chow Chow and it has been cut to look like it has a lion mane.

Last week we introduced you to Axel Kacoutie a producer/composer with that something something, which can only be described as utter genius.

This time, Kacoutie has picked Disclosure as his target, remixing 'White Noise' into a totally new and original track, adding pitchy vocals, tight drums, and an eery, haunting melody which leaves you pressing repeat, over-and-over again. This remix is Kacoutie's take on MNEK's awesome White Noise Refix.

Based in South London, Axel is in our very own city, which means we can get excited about the prospect of hopefully, seeing him play live somewhere very soon. In the mean time, his constant releasing of perfect tracks will keep us more than happy.

Can this man do no wrong?

 

Such is the steep, climbing trajectory of Surrey siblings Disclosure, this date at London’s Heaven already feels like a booking they’ve somewhat outgrown. Fans of the duo’s futuristic, balearic-tinged house spill out of every orifice of the chock-full Villiers Street superclub; preened, keen and dressed to the nines. They’re the lucky few. Many have tried and failed to be here this evening and so, if it wasn’t predictable enough from their inescapable approval and elevated chart position (the Lawrence brothers and AlunaGeorge currently sit in the Official UK Top 10), tonight feels like an event of weighty anticipation.

Not that this sense of occasion fazes exceptional new London collective Clean Bandit. Initially lining-up as a glitter-clad, six-piece tonight - with Nikki B and Makeda Moore providing a slew of smooth, soulful runs - they enthral throughout; swaying in sync during the pounding electronica of ‘Nightingale’, before inciting the crowd with ‘A+E’(s) contagious, chamber-electro chorus. However, their set hits new heights with the arrival of gold-hooded rapper, MC Ssegamic, who is charisma personified, mocking the movements of a baton-wielding conductor during the giddy, orchestral bliss of ‘Mozart’s House’. “We can’t leave London like this! Let’s drop a classic”, he says, before they send the converted attendance into ecstasy with a thrilling, Coolio/Destiny’s Child mash-up. The new Basement Jaxx, some say? Undoubtedly.

It could be a tricky support slot to follow, but Disclosure are far from knob-twiddling dullards; their forthcoming LP-heavy set is an immersive electronic experience from the off, with the two-piece flitting between drum pads, bass and synths on impulse. It takes the unveiling of EP favourite ‘Boiling’ to really ignite proceedings, the track’s honeyed, neo-soul and throaty bass proving irresistible amidst the darting strobes. However, the reaction is tame compared to what follows; the twosome play their trump card by welcoming the hypnotic Aluna Francis to join them for the electrifying, and chart-topping, ‘White Noise’, before launching into the skittery patches and spliced vocals of ‘What’s In Your Head’. It’s an exhilarating double, followed by their dancefloor-unifying remix of Jessie Ware's ‘Running’; the sold-out crowd's unanimous euphoria proving that it really has taken on a life of its own since its B-side release early last year. Duly, they complete a captivating set with the magnificent ‘Latch’, dangling it’s sampled “Ne-ver”(s) in front of the hordes, prior to greeting the silk-voiced Sam Smith on stage. “Now I got you in my space, I won’t let go of you” he cries, in front of a backdrop of their soon-to-be-iconic, neon faces; it’s a DJ’s motto if ever we’ve heard one, and one that they undeniably uphold.

London five-piece Clean Bandit have unveiled a brand new video for their infectious and eclectic new single 'Mozart's House'. The follow-up to previous single 'A+E' - which also boasted a brilliant, self-created video that followed a giant gold snake slithering through the capital - was produced and directed by the band and shot in London and Moscow.

The band are currently on a sold-out UK tour with South London duo Disclosure and are due to play London's Heaven this Thursday (7th March), but if you're missing out on this one then they also play Pulse Studios the following night (8th March).

'Mozart’s House' will be released on March 31st through Atlantic Records.

After blasting the airwaves with their 'White Noise' collaboration with Disclosure, AlunaGeorge have made their own comeback with 'Attracting Flies', an upbeat track with a real summer sound.

This duo don't appear to be able to do any wrong. Aluna's voice and George's production work harmoniously to create endless amounts of addictive and incredible music. Other tracks such as 'You Drums, Your Love' and 'You Know You Like It' have been huge radio hits too. The pair are receiving endless head nods from all the right places and all the right people. We can't wait to watch their success grow and grow.
