Turning Lorde’s disastrously sad and introspective ballad “Liability” into a bouncing pop song is no easy feat, but Tove Styrke did just that.
Ahead of sharing the stage with New Zealand’s favourite daughter, Styrke has shared a demo version of “Liability”. She’s heading out on the road with Lorde in North America early next year, so it’s only fitting that this is the track she’s chosen to rework.
Following in same vein of her latest single “Mistakes”, Styrke’s love of vocoder is clear as she makes “Liability” into a sad song to which you could find yourself dancing on your own.
The demo is a pitstop for Styrke, who even teases upcoming new material with her cropped screenshot artwork. She’s spent the past year figuring out the mathematics of pop while finishing up what will become her third album. This article originally appeared in The Line Of Bestfit

On Instagram, R&B singer Alina Baraz teased a snippet of her new song “Buzzin.” The track will follow her August release “Electric” featuring Khalid, and its subsequent remixes. In the preview, we hear Baraz’s dreamy voice over a beat by Ben Billions, who recently worked on “What Lovers Do,” for Maroon 5 featuring SZA.
The Ohio singer-songwriter got on the map after releasing her Urban Flora EP in 2015 with her sultry single “Fantasy.” The tropical song got a nod by Goldlink in his 2015 song “Palm Trees.”
Baraz is currently on tour with Coldplay, and hopefully the recent releases mean a new project is on the way. In the meantime, take a listen to “Electric” below. This article originally appeared in The Fader
Before embarking on a big tour abroad that will take them to England or the United States, the Chinese Man ends the year 2017 by unveiling their last clip from the excellent Shikantaza published in February.
“Wolf”, the song in question, oscillates between hip-hop and trip-hop way Massive Attack and as usual with the Chinese Man, it is riddled with samples, instrumental and vocal, that goes without saying.
At the realization, it is however not Fred & Annabelle that one finds, authors in particular of “Shikantaza” or “Golden Age”, but rather Vincent Cappello and a certain Matthieu Di Stefano , who is none other than Zé Mateo , one of the three protagonists of the crew. Review Found On La Grosse Radio
Chinese Man is a collective French trip hop band created in 2004 and originally from Aix-en-Provence. They are influenced by hip-hop, funk, dub, reggae and jazz. Chinese Man is composed of DJ Marseille Ze Mateo and High Ku and beatmaker SLY.
Avicii‘s music video for “You Be Love” is one he calls “pretty special,” because there are no actual moving parts, just a series of shots of digital statues that tell a story of love’s triumph over hate. Two women rush to embrace one another while the world tries to tear them apart. Their expressions and poses tell the story, and it’s actually quite emotional. Don’t worry, there’s a happy ending. It’s about love, after all. Review By Billboard

Bougenvilla drops a mesmerizing piece of dance music, working up hypnotic chords over a rushed house groove. Nagini turns out vintage floor music, the ideal DJ weapon for those dark club nights to come. You’ll love it!
Calvin Harris stays on his ’70s poolside vibe, as 2017 melts into the future. He recently touched up SZA‘s sensual wave flow on “The Weekend,” a song about borrowing your man for only the best nights of the week, and the so-called Funk Wav Remix is all the way glowed up.
A bouncing rhythm fit for the LP covers this R&B sensation in shag carpet. SZA’s immaculate vocal swings with serious attitude over these sex-time synths. It’s one of the snuggest-fitting remixes we’ve ever heard.
The original track peaked at no. 37 on the Hot 100 in earlier this December. SZA dropped the official remix on YouTube. Review Found On Billboard
