Rising UK producer Bearcubs’ latest single ‘Touch’ will be available through Love & Other on 1st December. Ahead of its release Jack Ritchie creates us a playlist of entrancing electro beats.
Londoner Jack Ritchie has been making a name for himself as of late thanks to his hit remixes for Gorgon City and Just Kiddin. With his new track, which the super-talented Jack wrote, sang and produced all by himself, he joins the wildly successful class of 2014 UK producers, the year when the world went crazy for EDM and this tiny island helped to kickstart a global music revolution. Jack isn’t just a producer though, he can play guitar and was once part of a 9 piece hip-hop outfit, eclectic doesn’t even begin to cover it.
We’re already imagining ourselves melting into Jack’s vocals at a club while the sun comes up outside. ‘Touch’ has all the fine-tuned slick style that garage brought in the 90s with an added depth of soft harmonies that brings the song into a new realm. A remix package will follow the track’s release including a special edition by garage trio Pandas.
T-Pain – ‘Stoicville’
Starting off with T-Pain’s latest track, emotional vibes, which is always good.
Wax Stag – ‘Summit’
Silky smooth electronica from his forthcoming album ‘II’.
Alina Baraz & Galamatias – ‘Fantasy’
This is too chilled.
Jelani Blackman – ‘Twenty//Three’
Love the murkiness of this track and the lazy, spoken-word style vocals.
Shura – ‘Indecision’
I’m a sucker for 80s beats and beautiful vocals.
Shigeto x Tyson – ‘Water Collides’
Sticky, clicky, clappy goodness.
LL Cool J – ‘Doin It’
A classic, so good.
Femme – ‘High (The Dealer Remix)’
All about the chords on this one.
William Arcane – ‘Reckless’
Softness and subtlety is fine art, William Arcane pulls it off nicely.
Seekae – ‘The Stars Below’
I could listen to this one track on loop for hours, hypnotic.
