_______________

Trust Myself” – biz colletti vs. “Heartless” – Luxe

Nashville’s biz colletti showcases her powerful, yet controlled voice with her electronic-pop ballad “Trust Myself.” Her second single of 2020, it defeated “Said It Again” by Isola in the Sweet Sixteen. It reflects on her inability to trust in her own self-control. A stripped version of this song is also available here. With “Heartless,” Toronto-based artist Luxe returns with his signature blend of emo and trap to create a dark, genre-bending single that fans of early Linkin Park might really enjoy. Last round, it defeated Amelie Patterson‘s “Let Your Trouble Go.”

_______________

Undercover” – Gabrielle Current vs. “Bleeding” – Parrotfish

Gabrielle Current‘s “Undercover” is a vibey, vocally-driven slow jam of a neo-soul/R&B song that showcases the impressive level of talent that caught the attention of artists/collaborators like Kaskade and Cassian. It defeated “BOSS B*TCH” by MOL$ and Kame Kami last round. “Bleeding” is the second-most recent single from Nashville-via-Tampa band Parrotfish, and the track takes on a slightly darker, more cinematic approach than the carefree, beachy sound one might expect from the quartet. The track features Jeena Turner on violin and defeated “The Game” by Grey Oakes in the Sweet Sixteen.

_______________

Insatiable” – Xandor x Katie DiCicco vs. “DAISY LANE – Spectoral Remix” – Kathana x Spectoral 

Boston DJ/producer Xandor‘s single “Insatiable” enlists the help of LA-based singer Katie DiCicco to create a high-energy pop/EDM track with intricate guitars and massive brass sounds. It defeated “LMLY” by Jared Minnix and With Love in the Sweet Sixteen. Meanwhile, Melbourne producer Spectoral‘s remix of Kathana‘s “Daisy Lane” brings a noticeably more stripped-back, chill energy to the song. This mix has the type of down-tempo ambience that makes for the perfect soundtrack to a night drive down the interstate. It led all other songs in voting last round on its way to defeating “Love OD” by Team in the Sweet Sixteen.

_______________

Magnetic” – Bashaya Soul vs. “Energy” – The Gyrating Hips x Jenni Rudolph x Hazansky

“Magnetic” is an uber-groovy funk/R&B track from Glasgow’s Bashaya Soul with a pumping bass line and clean production. It follows “Old Days” as the producer’s second single of 2020. It defeated “Fireflies in Brooklyn” by Alekxandr in the Sweet Sixteen. Meanwhile, the fast-paced, dangerously funky “Energy” is the opening track from The Gyrating Hips‘ “S/T” EP, which the Los Angeles band released in August. The song features important contributions from fellow LA musicians Jenni Rudolph on vocals and Hazansky on keys. It defeated “Independence Day” by American Trappist last round.
