Mi Vuoi - Ultraflex, Kuntessa

Article photo - Best in Pop - Hot New Releases

I recently came across Ultraflex (having listened to their track Rhodos), and have since become thoroughly obsessed. ‘Mi Vuoi’ is an explosion of shimmering eurodance, hypnotic electronic and synthpop; reminiscent of some of the most glorious electronic/eurodance/ synth fuelled pop from the 2000s. There is also a music video, which you can find here.

2120 - Jane Inc

Fun from start to finish. This sounds like it was plucked from a glamorous time in the past ( or perhaps was in the soundtrack to something you watched on a VHS tape) - and is the perfect song to escape into. The drums and synth production on this are incredible.

Electricity courses through every second of this track with this phenomenal collaboration. An in your face bassline mixed with luxuriously smooth vocals - this is one to blare.

The newest release from Mel 4Ever is reminiscent of some of the very best mid 2000s pop sensations - a wall of intense synths, sublime vocal production - and pure, unadulterated addictiveness from start to finish.

Hypnotic, nostalgic alt-pop from the UK based artist. ‘Burner Phone’ features delicate vocals set against a lush dreamscape; before a trap influenced beat comes in, leading us into a gorgeous hook that feels like it is playing over a hazy summer memory.

YOYO - Fior

This may be one of the best songs of 2022 - the 90s fuelled funk bassline, the shimmering keys, and the effortlessly smooth vocals; all lead to something that bears all the hallmarks of a classic. .
