Haven’t You Heard” – KOWL x Patrice Rushen vs. “Try Another Taste” – Shenna

KOWL brings the flair to Patrice Rushen‘s ridiculously funky disco-pop hit “Haven’t You Heard,” an dancy, fast-paced track. Rife with horns and some of the grooviest bass you’ll find anywhere, it’s a fun song perfect for a barbecue or a party. On “Try Another Taste” Shenna offers a jazzy R&B/pop song with an ear-worm of a chorus and air-tight delivery.

Between The Groove” – iamtheliving x Teon Gibbs vs. “Pretty Pills for Broken Hearts” – Cloudy June

“Between The Groove” is a collaboration between England’s iamtheliving and Canada’s Teon Gibbs. It features a jazz-influenced chord progression and groovy R&B vocals, and it feels a lot like an Anderson .Paak song. “Pretty Pills for Broken Hearts” by Cloudy June starts a little slow, but it quickly turns into a pop banger as soon as the chorus hits.

Come Back To Life” – The Zolas vs. “walk but in a garden” – LLusion x mxmtoon

“Come Back To Life” is a radio-friendly indie-rock song that’s begging for placement in a commercial or soundtrack. It was the second single of the year from Vancouver’s The Zolas.

Future Love” – nxtime vs. “Feels” – Sam Vesso

“Future Love” is the debut single from New York City band nxtime.  It features Kayla Joe and is hip, warm, and easy to listen to. Musically, it pulls as much from indie and R&B as it does from 80s pop. Over on Long Island, Sam Vesso‘s “Feels” is pop for people who love a well-used talkbox effect. The upbeat single marks his debut, as well.
