Introduucing...Karen Harding!

Sure, Top 40 pop music is a bit, erm, lackluster at the moment. But across the pond, the dance scene continues to flourish. From Disclosure to Clean Bandit to Gorgon City to Route 94 to Sigma to Katy B, there's been absolutely no shortage of incredibly crafted, early '90's House and UK garage…


Introduucing...Grace Mitchell!

Meet Grace Mitchell, a Portland-based singer-songwriter. She's also only 16 years old — but you'd never guess it after hearing the music. Following an appearance on the tracklisting of the Secret Life Of Walter Mitty soundtrack last year with her gorgeous and dramatic reworking of Hall & Oates’…


Introduucing...TIAAN!

Everyone, please give a warm welcome to TIAAN. Back in April, the up-and-coming Australian singer-songwriter dropped a debut EP on Arnthor Birgisson's Swedish label, Aristotracks. He's the genius producer who co-wrote and crafted everything from Jessica Simpson's "Irresistible" to Britney's "Out…


Introduucing...Jake Lore!

Meet Jake Lore, an unlikely pop star creating his very own blurred lines. Although the heavily tattooed, Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter grew up taking piano and guitar lessons as a child, Jake didn’t take the idea of songwriting too seriously until coming across a blog post about LCD…


Introduucing...Laura Welsh!

Somewhere in the middle of last month's June MuuTunes, I included Gorgon City's latest, greatest dance floor gem, "Here For You," featuring a UK singer-songwriter 'on the rise' named Laura Welsh. It's time now to get better acquainted. The London-based singer-songstress has had her fair share of…


Introduucing...Moko!

Meet Moko, a soulful songstress who happens to be as amazing as her hair already suggests. You might already know her — or, at the very least, recognize her voice — from Chase & Status' 2013 breakbeat hit, "Count On Me." Following the song's success, Moko made her solo debut with the 4-track…


Introduucing...Mapei!

Waiting for a change? Fear not: Mapei is ready to lead the revolution. The Stockholm-bred, Providence-born singer first debuted 'on the scene' in 2009 with an EP called The Cocoa Butter Diaries — as a rapper. Years later, having hit some "artistic stagnation," she traveled to several countries…


Introduucing...Cars & Calories!

Cars & Calories is a duo made up of neither cars nor calories. Discuss. Cars & Calories is, in fact, an up-and-coming Norwegian pop-rock duo, known individually as Michael Markussen and Jim André Bergsted. And together, they make music that they themselves would describe as "somewhere in between…


Introduucing...Jess Glynne!

Jess Glynne might be a new name as a solo starlet, but her voice ought to be awfully familiar for those of you with an ear to the dance floor in 2014. The soulful UK songstress is responsible for supplying the vocal stylings featured on Route 94's UK #1 "My Love," as well as Clean Bandit's "Rather…


Introduucing...Mileo!

Meet Mileo! His full name is Miles Curtis Sesselmann — so, y'know, let's just go with "Mileo." Mileo is a 19-year-old singer-songwriter, originally born and raised in Australia (Sydney, to be precise), although his family hails from both Norway and England. Therefore, he is quite worldly. Last…


Introduucing...King N' Queen!

Surprise! Tricked you. Sort of. You see, King N' Queen might be a new duo, and "Girlfriend" might be a new song, but you more than likely already know a lil' something about all the players involved in this production. (And if you don't, well...consider this your formal Introduuction all around.)…


Introduucing...SLK!

Between BANKS and Lorde and Say Lou Lou and Lana Del Rey and Lykke Li, the downtempo ladies are truly having their moment in the sun — err, moonlight. East London singer-songwriter (and/or Elusive Chanteuse) SLK (that's pronounced "Silk") is a relatively new name to add to the steadily growing…
