I <3 New Music

| More

Esser - I Love You (prince paul remix)
Esser - I Love You (radio)

Esser, a 23 year old UK native, created an album’s worth of forward-thinking, explosively catchy electronic pop songs in his bedroom. Braveface, with no label or marketing behind it, incited the Kaiser Chiefs to bring him on a sold out arena tour as their opening act, motivated Cee-Lo to enlist Esser to do production on his upcoming solo record and it caught the attention of legend Don Letts who recently performed with Esser on stage in London.
Aside from attracting the ears of tastemakers across the world, Esser’s talent as a songwriter is undeniable. With a knife-sharp sense of style, lyrical wit and bombastic production skills, Esser’s approach to pop songwriting comes from a distinctly British standpoint, flush with undercurrents of ska and dubstep. This is some of the catchiest and smartest pop to come out of the UK in a long time.
The first single from Braveface, “I Love You”, will be out May 26th as a limited edition 300 copy vinyl pressing complete with a handmade letterpressed jacket, and Prince Paul remix!

Don't Make Babies...

We typically promote the hell out of electronic dance music with the crew... but this Thursday night I want to take a moment to recognize a new R&B talent coming out of Chicago. I'll be back tomorrow with a super-hot preview of the new Freeland CD, Cope.
