UK-based singer/songwriter Katy B stunned listeners with her debut album On a Mission last year. Categorized somewhere between dubstep, pop, and R&B, the London starlet shined through with her distinct vocals and electronic-driven beats. Now preparing to unveil her sophomore album in 2013, Katy B treated us with an early Christmas gift, her Danger EP.
The 4-track EP is a star-studded affair topped with Katy’s infectious voice — starting off with a helping hand from Rinse FM’s Geeneus and Jessie Ware on “Aaliyah,” the two singers pay a magnetic homage to the late princess of R&B. Wiley and Zinc lend their talents on the poppy “Get Paid,” while Diplo and Iggy Azalea hop on “Light As A Feather” which samples the previously released “Set It Off.” The title track finishes out the weighted Danger EP and Katy lets her sultry vocals take control of the smooth beat to create slow-building melody.

Just released on Fool’s Gold Records, A-Trak and DJ Zinc bring us their newest work “Stingray.” A nice variation from the standard progressive tunes that are starting to dominate the EDM landscape, “Stingray” pushes the limits with its unique yet addicting sound. Somewhere between funky house and fidget, DJ Zinc dubs his new sound crack house. For those of you who love EDM but like hearing something a little different from straight progressive once in a while, this is for you.
