Kiesza Gives US Debut Performance At New York’s Santos Party House: Review

11f9488ce65b38d710d4e433585a3b9f Kiesza Gives US Debut Performance At New York’s Santos Party House: Review

Ducking into Santos Party House on Tuesday (July 22) evening in New York’s vibrant TriBeCa neighborhood, the mood was straight-up Giddy Night Out At The Club Circa 1995, from the rainbow-variety lighting to the fog machine to the deep house cuts the DJ was spinning. Granted, the venue is a nightclub, and said fog machine signaled the entrance on stage of the sweetheart of pop’s ’90s house revival scene: Kiesza.

When the Canadian singer stopped by Idolator for a chat back in March, to the eyes and ears of most, she was simply a girl on a small, independent label with a retro-sounding dance track called “Hideaway” that had a soon-to-be-viral video and a back story that involved ballet, the military and a love of all things Michael Jackson.

In just four months, however, “Hideaway” has topped charts across Europe while Kiesza herself has hob-knobbed with Diplo, written music for Rihanna and become the new face of Fendi’s eyewear line. Only one puzzle piece was missing from the diva’s full arrival: her debut show in the United States.

Kieza’s premiere stateside gig was appropriately in New York, the city she now calls home. And while the six-song set was short — to-date, she’s only released an EP, also titled Hideaway — it was packed with, in the flame-haired singer’s own words, “a lot of firsts.”

In case anyone doubted the her love of the ’90s, the night got started with Kiesza and her two female dancers voguing (!) their way through energetic fan favorite “No Enemiesz,” a Eurodance gem that has yet to be officially released.

Kiesza — “No Enemiesz” (live in London, June 2014)

Next up were “Giant In My Heart,” the follow-up single to “Hideaway,” and a stripped-down, ballad version of Haddaway‘s seminal “What Is Love,” which found Kiesza’s small band taking a break as she perched herself at a piano.

The singer introduced her rendition of “Hallelujah” as the first song she ever tackled live. (Adding an old-school hip hop beat to Leonard Cohen? Interesting touch!) Swinging back into dance party mode, Kiesza offered up her very first live performance of “So Deep,” a deceptive number off her EP with a lulling, hypnotic slow-jam intro that eventually breaks down into a pulsating house banger.

This was later followed by “You’ve Got Me Losing My Mind,” a new hip-house track from her upcoming album. “If you’re in this room, you’re the first ever to hear that song,” Kiesza announced.

The hour-long set was peppered with the singer and her pair of dancers bouncing across the stage in unison, shooting bubbles into the audience and, yes, doing the running man to remixed snippets of party favorites like Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock‘s “It Takes Two” and Bell Biv Devoe‘s “Poison.”

And then, finally, Kiesza ripped into an extended version of “Hideway,” a song that sounds infinitely more fantastic in a club setting than when pouring out of the radio or a laptop. Upon  the opening synth note and moody bass thrum of the song, drunk girls sprung to life and twirled, gay dudes lost their shit and the crowd packed into Santos Party House witnessed the winding down of an extremely tight set by one of 2014′s great pop standouts.

Michelle Williams Teases New ‘Journey To Freedom’ Snippets: Listen To “Yes” And “Need Your Help”

a6cd34b8341495ddb169fd91f4bfecd7 Michelle Williams Teases New ‘Journey To Freedom’ Snippets: Listen To “Yes” And “Need Your Help”

Michelle Williams is redefining the soundscape of gospel music on her fourth solo LP Journey To Freedom. The Destiny’s Child diva first showed her intent to shake things up on mid-tempo R&B anthem “Fire” but really went HAM on Beyonce and Kelly Rowland-assisted religious club banger “Say Yes”. Her mission to make faith-based more accessible continues with two new snippets.

The 33-year-old diva surprises on “Need Your Help” — an urban-pop anthem with a distinct ’80s twist courtesy of retro-synths. It’s very promising but Michelle takes it to the next level on “Yes”. The frantic electro-house anthem begins with a massive drop before a male singer demands “put your hands up in the air”. At this rate, Journey To Freedom is shaping up to be one of the most unexpectedly original albums of the year. Listen to the new snippets after the jump.

“Need Your Help”:

“Yes”:

Life Before “Shower”: Becky G’s 5 Best Early Songs And Features

b915e2c480cbcfba7f47c4adcb8d62d1 Life Before “Shower”: Becky G’s 5 Best Early Songs And Features

Becky G captured lightning in a bottle with Dr. Luke-produced melodic rap/power-pop banger “Shower”. The infectious sing-a-long anthem is storming up the Billboard Hot 100 and on the cusp of cracking the iTunes top 10. It’s the commercial breakthrough we’ve been waiting for since the 17-year-old first started making waves in 2012 with a bunch of cute features.

Given her new profile as the savior of Latin-infused hip-hop/pop, now is as good a time as any to revisit Becky G’s early cuts. While her verse on Cher Lloyd‘s “Oath” is perhaps her best-known feature, she also brightened up Cody Simpson‘s “Wish U Were Here” (still his best single) and stole the show on the rap remix of Kesha‘s “Die Young”. Fall in love with teen’s back catalogue after the jump.

5. “Can’t Get Enough” — Becky G feat. Pitbull

The highlight of Ms. G’s recent Play It Again EP reached number one on the Latin Rhythm chart (I don’t know what that is either) but it should have been a massive crossover pop smash. “Can’t Get Enough” is the rising diva’s catchiest party anthem and Pit’s Spanglish feature is a winner.

4. “Wish U Were Here” — Cody Simpson feat. Becky G

Before reinventing himself as the teenage, guitar-strumming Jack Johnson, Aussie pop star Cody Simpson dabbled in dance-pop and he got it just right with Dr. Luke at the helm of this gem, which was made even cuter and catchier by the addition of Becky G rapping about buses, trains and jet-packs.

3. “Becky From The Block” — Becky G

It’s pretty ambitious to cover a song this closely associated with Jennifer Lopez but the “Shower” singer makes it her own iconic rhymes like: “if you wanna date me you gotta ask my daddy, and my 30 uncles — you can meet them in an alley”. Hell, J.Lo even graces the video with a cameo! A not-so-guilty pleasure.

2. “Die Young” — Kesha feat. Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa and Becky G

This raised a lot of eyebrows when it dropped in late 2012. First of all, the idea of tarnishing Kesha’s flawless “Die Young” with a rap remix sounded like a bad idea to begin with and Becky G seemed like an odd choice to spit bars alongside Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa. As it turns out, she more than holds her own and this is still all kinds of dope.

1. “Hola Hola” — Becky G

Someone needs to make a justice for “Hola Hola” hashtag on Twitter. This infectious Latin club-banger is utterly addictive and boasts amazing lyrics like: “had to tell my ex adios because you were hotter than a jalapeno, my lingo is bilingual here’s my number bingo.” It’s time to free this from the vault!

5 Seconds Of Summer are near unstoppable at the moment. The Australian teenagers have topped iTunes twice (“Don’t Stop” and “Amnesia”) and already racked up three top 50 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 from their self-titled debut LP, which dropped today (July 22). It looks certain to land at number one next week — a feat the newcomers have achieved in 11 other countries.

The boys dropped by Today this morning to perform breakthrough hit “She Looks So Perfect” and the aforementioned “Amnesia” in front of thousands of screaming fans. 5SOS know how to bring it live and drove the crowd into a frenzy with their tight musicianship and catchy hooks. One Direction finally has some legitimate competition. Watch up top and after the jump.

BANKS Releases Hardhitting ‘Goddess’ Track, “Beggin For Thread”: Listen

0eb415eb5955c483f33f3401c0fd6615 BANKS Releases Hardhitting ‘Goddess’ Track, “Beggin For Thread”: Listen

Gearing up for her highly anticipated debut LP Goddess, LA singer-songwriter BANKS has been spontaneously releasing tracks into cyberspace to give listeners a little taste of what’s in store, premiering yet another brand new track “Beggin For Thread” yesterday (July 21).

However, unlike the hypnotic number “Drowning” and Shlohmo-produced single “BRAIN,” the latest song is more menacing than ever and, dare we say it, radio-friendly? More upbeat than usual, the tune helps bring BANKS’ glorious pipes to the forefront against the hazy, synth-laden melody, bringing a whole new dimension to this soulstress on the rise.

Listen to the track after the jump.

Chelsea Lankes Debuts Her Joyous “Ghost” Follow-Up, “Secret”: Listen

04c23d184d5a4d02b503bcde67af2fbe Chelsea Lankes Debuts Her Joyous “Ghost” Follow Up, “Secret”: Listen

Late last year, a newcomer named Chelsea Lankes captivated us with her lush and appropriately haunting debut single, “Ghost.” The song went on to become a major blogosphere sensation, racking up over 400K plays on Soundcloud alone.

She’s back now — and just in time to lead us into the second half of summer with her equally stunning new single, “Secret.”

While every bit as great as her debut, the long-awaited follow-up is a vastly different beast: Bouncing along an uptempo pulse, the silky-voiced Southern songstress revels in a blissful romance on the joyous synth-pop gem. “Every time you pull me closer, feeling like I won’t get over/Between you and me, you are the secret I keep,” she happily swoons. It’s a sincerely catchy, earnest ode that deserves to make Chelsea formally pop before the release of her debut EP, due out later this fall.

Listen to “Secret” after the jump, and let us know what you think of the song in the comments below.

The Chainsmokers & Siren’s “Kanye”: Listen To The “#SELFIE” Follow-Up

e74f5b29a067328b67be08808bdacfef The Chainsmokers & Siren’s “Kanye”: Listen To The “#SELFIE” Follow Up

Sure, The Chainsmokers’ breakout cut “#SELFIE” has been described as “garbage, paint-by-numbers EDM,” but haters be damned — that hasn’t stopped the NYC duo‘s members Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall from plowing ahead with another gimmicky (at least in title) offering. This time around the guys have popped a singer named Siren in front of the mic for a new tune called — wait for it — “Kanye.”

“One day I’ll stand with a crown on my head like a god,” Siren chirps on the track. The Chainsmokers themselves introduced “Kanye” by way of a short snippet and fur-adorned cover art popped on their Instagram bearing the caption, “You can be anything you want to be!”

We’re not quite sure yet just how much Kanye West fawning happens on the song, but for now you can give the short clip a listen below.

Drake Vs. Lil Wayne Tour Gets A Trailer: Watch The Video Game-Inspired Clip

c6c22cba69134959b4185a64fb2984fa Drake Vs. Lil Wayne Tour Gets A Trailer: Watch The Video Game Inspired Clip

Bound to be one of the hottest hip-hop shows of 2014, the Drake Vs. Lil Wayne tour just released a little teaser, and, like The Karate Kid’s Mr. Miyagi and Daniel LaRusso, it seems that this is another classic case of the teacher versus the student. Created by Capcom, the video is done in the style of the video game Street Fighter where Lil Wayne and Drake are pegged against each other as Sage versus the Protégé, guaranteeing a truly epic clash of hip-hop heavyweights.

“Since, thank god we’ve been so successful, [we'll just be] going back and forth with our hits and getting the crowd to go crazy, then just finally hit the stage together,” Weezy revealed to MTV News. “It’s a battle type thing.”

But don’t worry, folks — it’s all in good fun. Catch the trailer up top, and get ready for the throw-down of the summer!
