BOY SODA has announced an advent calendar style release for his debut mixtape YC-TAPE: Vol 1. He will be releasing 9 new songs between December 2nd and the 21st of December. Today he has shared Body, a slow jamming R&B cut. The track reflects on the grey areas in relationships, one where the underlying desire for the connection to expand deeper than the physical takes over initial infatuation. 

Chanel Loren - F4U
Chanel Loren is gifting fans with another track this year titled F4U. Following her huge win of Song Of The Year at the FBi SMAC Awards, Chanel returns with songwriting precision and class. She returns to her signature mixture of alt-R&B as she ruminates over a past relationship with a new found maturity.

PinkPantheress - Boy’s a liar
PinkPantheress has released the highly anticipated Boy’s a liar created alongside Mura Masa. The track lands ahead of PinkPantheress’ debut tour to Australia where she will perform at Falls Festival, Lost Paradise and Heaps Good Festival. The track explores the notion that men are trash, over a piano and soul inspired house beat.

Memphis LK - Coffee
Memphis LK is continuing to push genre boundaries releasing club and pop infused new single Coffee. The track is taken from her forthcoming EP, Too Much Fun which is set to release on Friday the 13th of January. The track combines Memphis’ infectious gliding vocals with energetic, UK inspired house production. Emotionally the track reflects on being in a situationship and the conflicting emotions that result from that context. 

Kid Pharaoh - British Museum
Kid Pharaoh has released his powerful new single British Museum. The track acts as an opportunity to reclaim his heritage and Egypt's stolen artefacts from London and return them home to Cairo. The track is a relentless, empowering and passionate cut that discusses colonialism, identity and the surrender of displaced artefacts in museums.

A.GIRL - Do It Again
One of Australia’s soon to be biggest exports A.GIRL has released her gorgeous new single Do It Again, once again proving that she is one of the most versatile songwriters in the country. The track is a downtempo, sonically gorgeous slice of silky R&B as A.GIRL vocally impresses above strings, restrained drums and echoing keys. 

Sam Alfred - Aucklands Groove
One of the most hyped producers and DJs across Australia Sam Alfred has released his new single Aucklands Groove. The track is taken from his soon to release Suzuka EP which is set to release in 2023. The track is a uptempo, piano led house number that climaxes in its final third with a gorgeous melodic lead and a thumping, swinging house beat.
