In anticipation of their debut record, Guy and Howard Lawrence have treated us to the second track from Settle- a classic house groove driven by a sliced up sample of an impassioned US motivational speaker.
Disclosure’s forthcoming album drops on June 3rd and will feature the likes of Jamie Woon, Jessie Ware, and Sam Smith. And if you’re around, catch them live this Wednesday in Vancouver, courtesy of the good people at Blueprint.
London-based singer and keyboardist Sampha is best known for his timeless collaborations with SBTRKT on SBTRKT’s self-titled record released in 2011. More recently, he produced “What You Won’t Do For Love” for Jessie Ware and vocalized alongside her on “Valentine.”
This year, Sampha is embarking in another promising partnership with Koreless, a name that has been present on both LOW-LIFE’s 2011 and 2012 retrospectives with his tracks “4d” and “Lost In Tokyo.” Under the guise Short Stories, the duo will be unchaining two stunning tracks, releasing On The Way/Let It Go via Young Turks on January 28th. Funnily enough, we caught a listen of “On The Way” way back in 2010 during Koreless’s Boiler room set before the song seemed to disappear into thin air- we’re grateful to see it resurface. “Let It Go” was produced more recently and recorded over two days in the very same studio that The xx wrote Coexist.
On The Way/Let It Go will also be released on a limited 12” vinyl and if you’re so inclined, pre-order it here.
Here is a soulful rework of Jessie Ware‘s Night Light by American-based “baby making record maker”, Pursues. Pursues takes the remix in an emotional and powerful direction contrasting the rock influenced original; he focuses on Jessie’s prevailing vocal lines and supports them with buoyant keyboard tones.

Jessie Ware released a handful of remixes of her single “No To Love” yesterday from Todd Edwards, Ewan Pearson, and George Fitzgerald.
On my personal favorite of the three adaptations, George Fitzgerald integrates Ware’s sultry vocals into an infectious minimalist house framework.
Here is an infectious dance-floor remix of Jessie Ware’s “Night Light” by Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard. “Night Light” is a single from Ware’s 2012 LP Devotion (Universal Island/PMR).
Earlier this morning, English pop-soul artist, Jessie Ware, unofficially released the single, Sweet Talk, by making the track available to stream on her own Youtube channel. Sweet Talk features production from Bristolian bass-music behemoth, Julio Bashmore, and by Dave Okumu, the lead singer and guitarist of the British band, The Invisible.
Jessie Ware’s Sweet Talk is a dreamy and seductive combination between tasteful electronic-yet-organic production, and Jessie’s gentle depiction of submitting to emotion opposed to logic. The result is beautiful, achieving near perfect chemistry of atmosphere and sentiment.
Sweet Talk is taken from the Jessie’s debut album, Devotion, available to pre-order, here.

At 8 o clock Tuesday morning, Brixton born Jessie Ware was kind enough to give away a free track she did with SBTRKT collaborator Sampha, a cover of the smooth jazz extraordinaire, Bobby Caldwell‘s What You Don’t Do For Love.

[Julio & Jessie]
Its not every day that we feature a female brit-pop act, but then again Jessie Ware isn’t you’re everyday female brit-pop act, seeing as she snagged the under-ground renowned Julio Bashmore to sit behind the mixer for her latest track, “110%,” due out on June 4th via PMR.
While you’re at it, have a listen to this particularly scintillating remix from UK duo Disclosure, put out in February of this year. I highly recommend it.
