Hervé Feat. Knytro // Money Where Your Mouth Is

Recently we posted about Chase and Status’ MTA Records celebrating their 5th Birthday in style, and following on from that announcement Essex producer Hervé has released the awesome ‘Money Where Your Mouth Is’ featuring MTA signing Knytro.

This bass-led electronic and hiphop banger is a different sound to what you’d expect from an act associated with Chase and Status, but it shows the diversity of the label and it’s pretty darn catchy.

Check it out below, and prepare to be humming it all day long.


Chelou // Like A Dream [Free Download]

It wasn’t long ago that I wrote about the enigmatic acoustic sound that was Chelou and how I couldn’t wait to hear what they had to release next.  Unfortunately I’ve been a little late to the next release but I had to share it with the First Ear family.

The new track Like A Dream is so elegant in its simplicity that every note, guitar tap and lyric are provided with an added weight that often more fussy and complicated tracks fail to achieve.  The vocals again have a haunting yet beautiful vulnerability to them that lilts so effortlessly alongside the most delicate and complimentary of guitar lines.  It’s the space around the track that really allows it to breath and therefore make a bigger impact.  Simplicity at its dramatic best.

Check out the track and the free download below.  Also Chelou is playing in London Oct 30th, find details on their Facebook & twitter.  The enigma is unravelling!




Sunshine // Nehzuil

Nehzuil dropped a new track called Sunshine, and it ain’t called sunshine for nothing. If you haven’t heard of him, well you’re missing out. Having been featured on here quite a few times, he is obviously one talented artist. And he has done it again with this one. Fresh, upbeat feel good vibe and some future R&B mojo, this is one mix that is worth every single play. Plus it’s a free download! Head down his Soundcloud/Nehzuil for the download link.


Y Λ Z B E Λ T Z – Feeling Faded 008

Selector, visionary , prince of blends, Co-Founder of FutureBeats Records and the man behind the man (DJ Complexion), The one and Only YazBeatz.
He has once again blessed us with another amazing mix from his Feeling Faded series. This one kicks off with a beautiful Stwo-Morphan Refix, includes some sounds from FutureBeats Records and some more vibey stuff you would expect from a man like YazBeatz.

Have a listen and be prepared to be taken on a Journey through space and time.

Chooky- Brandi Remix

Brandy – I Wanna Be Down (Chooky Remix)

Rooted in hip-hop and flared with pop, D.C. bred producer Chooky has been DJing and producing dance music since 2011. For his latest release he decided to flip Brandy’s 1994 debut release “I Wanna Be Down” into his own chipmunked-out edit that bounces with hints of R&B and soul influence. When speaking on his take on “I Wanna Be Down,” Chooky stated: ‘I have always loved Brandy, especially this record and when I stumbled across the acapella I couldn’t help myself.’ Welp – were glad you were reminded of this 90’s classic too. This bass-infused remix is up for Free Download and can be streamed below.
