Picture this: four of the biggest names in the game releasing four killer new tunes. Yep, it’s true!
Calvin Harris and Rag’n’Bone Man – Giant
Somehow, Calvin Harris is still producing an array of hits. The Scottish DJ is so successful it’s almost annoying (but totally well-deserved). He showed last year that he is at the top of his game after working with Sam Smith, Dua Lipa, Benny Blanco and more. Now, he has released his first single of 2019, ‘Giant’. Harris’ new tune goes through the motions of colourful house beats and synths, which is then paired with the soulful voice of Rag’n’Bone Man. The chart-topper has nailed this hit. It’s an absolute must listen! If anyone has a ‘how to be as successful as Calvin Harris’ guide, I would appreciate it.
RÜFÜS DU SOL – Treat You Better
After producing two well-received albums, the Sydney born trio making up RÜFÜS DU SOL have spent a bit of time over in California putting together their anticipated third record. The opener for their album ‘Treat You Better’ takes a softer and more melodic approach, which sets up the series of songs to come. The record also features a darker theme compared to their generally more upbeat tone in their two previous albums, Atlas and Bloom. A welcomed change has brought an extremely raw, lyrical-based and passionate piece of art. Listen to the album in its entirety, it’s absolute gold.
Rudimental Feat. Ray BLK and Stefflon Don – Scared of Love
Rudimental have been doing a stellar job at teasing their new album ‘Toast to Our Differences’ lately. They have released their smash-hits featuring Macklemore, Tom Walker, and Rita Ora, which has seen them casually glide up the charts before their whole album has even dropped. The four members from London now hold the responsibility of bringing a completely new range of club music to the top of the charts, something they seem to embrace with open arms. The entirety of their new album is set to drop on the 25th of January (If you need to reach me in 9 days, I’ll be busy) and you can hear it LIVE on the 8th of February. That’s right, they’re coming to little old Adelaide. Nab a ticket here.
Peking Duk and Jack River – Sugar
Boy, have we got another goodie for you! Peking Duk have kicked off 2019 with their new song, ‘Sugar’. Collaborating with Australia’s very own Jack River, the duo said that she changed the ‘sombre melancholic skeleton of a song’ and turned it into a ‘fun, playful and sugary playground’. The music scene isn’t the only venture they’re nailing. The last three months has seen the duo releasing a children’s book and opening their own bar in Melbourne. On top of this, the Aussie DJ’s are hitting the road for their Biggest Tour Ever in March, and will be dropping into Adelaide on the 3rd on May. Yep, you can hear this glorious 90’s vibin’ song live! It’s clear that they’re not slowing down anytime soon, and we’re bloody stoked.
