For RCRD LBL Vol. 18 we have brand new tracks fromGrimes, The Men, Bombay Bicycle Club, Cadence Weapon and more! With a variety of music that includes Malaysian pop, remixes, hip-hop, Brooklyn hard rock and canadian synth pop, this Essentials mix has something for everyone.
Yuna starts things off with a their lounge-y pop song “Live Your Life”. Yuna is a 19 year old singer songwriter from Malaysia, who sounds like a combination of Feist and The Cardigans. She was discovered on Myspace back in 2006 and is currently signed to the FADER Recod Label in New York. An exciting young talent, she has a huge following in her native country and has been quickly making a name for herself in the US as well.
Cadence spits rapid fire rhymes over a robotic beat produced by Grimes, who also has a track of her own on this Essentials playlist – “Genesis (feat. Deniro Farrar) (Ryan Hemsworth Remix).” Grimes has been one of the most talked about artists in the past couple of months. Her new album Visions has turned quite a few heads with its infectious synth pop.
Brooklyn hard rock quartet The Men contribute “Open Your Heart,” title track and highlight of their new album.
