Jamaica’s hottest export, 19-year-old singer Koffee, just released two new remixes from her critically-acclaimed debut EP Rapture. “Toast” and “Throne” enlisting Mura Masa for two infectiously eerie renditions of the songs with the British producer entirely reworking the tracks with experimental synths, drum hits, and a heavy dose of low end.

The songs follow the remix for “Rapture” featuring rising dancehall artist Govana, her feature on Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber’s “I Don’t Care” remix alongside fellow Spanish Town, Jamaica artist Chronixx, and her feature as Apple’s Up Next artist for the month of June. 

The remixes also arrive in the midst of Koffee’s UK/European tour run ahead of her debut show in New York City this Fall. She’ll play sets at Denmark’s Roskilde Festival and Montreal’s Osheaga Festival leading up to her sold out NYC show at The Gramercy Theater on September 12th and Brooklyn Steel show on September 11th.

2019 continues to be a breakout year for Koffee. Her performance of “Rapture” on COLORS has already received over 4 million views and single “Toast” has earned 45 million views on Youtube and is shaping up to be the song of the summer in Jamaica, while also gaining traction in the U.S. The song finding supporters in numerous radio stations including Hot 97 and Power 105.1 in New York City. The Rapture EP also reached the #1 spot on Billboard’s Reggae Chart and is fast approaching 100 million streams.

La Doña releases debut EP ‘Algo Nuevo’

Published

on

La Doña by Thalia Gochez

Latina artist La Doña has officially released her debut Algo Nuevo EP via Human Re-Sources. Produced heavily by Doña herself, the EP includes previously-released singles “Quién Me La Paga” (“Whose Going To Pay For It?” in English), an infectious cumbia-led track that denounces life’s ever-increasing expenses, and the self-coined “femmeton” anthem “Le Lo Lai,” which reverts the machismo paradigm so prevalent in reggaeton and hip-hop.

Speaking on the EP, La Doña says: “Algo nuevo is a gift of something new; it is a statement about the versatility of musical forms and diasporic rhythms; it is a marriage of the traditional with the contemporary; it is an offering and a statement to la raza, the boss girls, las malas, the non-binary and queer homies, ‘I see you, I am you, and I made this for you.'” 

The EP is a fruitful and masterful collage of La Doña’s world. The artist composes songs influenced heavily by Bay Area hyphy styles, lowrider culture, Mission muralismo, and musica de la (U.S./Mexico) frontera, while exploring radical brown femininity alongside love and pain.

Algo Nuevo also arrives alongside La Doña’s release show at The Chapel in San Francisco tonight where she’ll be joined by Sazon Libre, Chulita Vinyl Club, and Mariachi Juvenil La Misión.

After touring North America in support of Cuco, opening for legendary Mexican rock group Café Tacvba, and being named one of YouTube Music’s Foundry artists with past alumni including Rosalía, Dua Lipa, Chloe X Halle, and Gunna, La Doña is entering 2020 in full force.

“Heathers”and “Jawbreaker” vibes ooze from The Naked and Famous new video

Published

on

The Naked and Famous are giving off a dark comedy vibe (think Heathers and Jawbreaker) in a major way with their new music video for their latest song “Bury Us”.


Alisa Xayalith accidentally murders her boyfriend, leading herself to enlist bandmate Thom Powers to help cover up the evidence. Additional chaos ensues all amidst bright colors, perfectly matching the shimmering synth sound of the track.

“Bury Us” is a track off of the duo’s forthcoming album ‘Recover’ which is a full-throttle dosage of the 2010s-era synth pop sound they helped define (remember “Young Blood”?!) mixed with a powerful sentiment of survival, and the very human process of self-preservation — of saving, choosing and celebrating oneself in a world constantly trying to put us down.
