By this point in his career Matoma has become quite the veritable hitmaker. Following up Girl at Coachella with MAGIC! and D.R.A.M. and Staying Up with The Vamps comes Slow with Noah Cyrus.

As Turkey Day approaches us, the return of Ashe comes in the form of a track called Girl Who Cried Wolf. Is it a fairy tail ending for this Berklee graduate? Work off that stuffing with this new song.
Abra’s back, with banging beats and fogged-out vocals from Atlanta’s underbelly! Bacardi could be a party scene outtake from the indie horror It Follows, with sickly atonal synths riding on top of a simple-but-deadly-effective boom-bap beat from an 808 drum machine.
Yo, this is Kanye West here, and in case you have yet to read page 6, SPOILER ALERT!!! I’m launching my very own music streaming service. But for now Imma leave you with 10 best of indie pop songs that I would feature on my Yeezy Sound (I thought of that name myself).
As I slowly eat myself into a sugar coma join me as we dive into a playlist that will prove to be the most exciting thing you’ve heard all week.

Even though We Are The Guard are just taking notice of Tom Tripp, we can't help but be reminded of yesteryear when we listened to the focus track of his Red EP, Stand. If we want to get really specific, it reminds us of Michael Jackson's Bad era.
Aisha Badru’s Bridges is a glowing, gorgeous, emotional testament to sticking through the rough times. 2017 is a big year for Aisha Badru, with Bridges following quickly behind her excellent Mind On Fire single from earlier this year.
Fetty’s dropped under the radar since the 2015 release of his debut album, but he's back with his signature vocals that can make doves cry. Check out LA electronic trio Cheat Codes’ new single, Feels Great featuring Fetty and CVBZ), and listen to why I’m booking Fetty as my wedding singer.
