Singer/Songwriter Sam Smith Teams Up With Jimmy Napes, Nile Rodgers & Disclosure

Singer/songwriter Sam Smith recently teamed up with an all-star lineup consisting of Jimmy Napes (collaborator on both Naughty Boy's "La La La" and Disclosure's "Latch"), Chic co-founder and guitar player Nile Rodgers (extensively featured on the last Daft Punk album) & prolific house-flavoured pop duo of the year Disclosure just to tease us with a short 2 minutes gem.

The song is a fresh groove topped with proper blue-eyed soul accentuations and a subtle Steely Dan aftertaste. We can only hope this team effort will generate more music soon. See for yourself. Stream below!

  • Editor's Note: Crow’s Feet is the project of Glasgow based Lewis Tollan. Lewis runs a recording studio as his day job and we thought it might be interesting to get a commentary on how most musicians today need to have some sort of other job to supplement their income. This is a guest-post.  Crow's Feet's first single, "Alarm Clock Bones", showcases a deep sound with comparisons like Mogwai,Explosions in the Sky or Barbarossa. The song draws on a number of thoughts and feelings but centres...
  • Montreal based songwriter Samito released a new track in collaboration with Toronto artist Muneshine titled "Cem Cem" featuring Mabika Ki. This new song comes alongside the announcement of his latest EP of three tracks : Travel Basecamp Portugal.  The story behind this EP is quite interesting. Samito was first approached by the team of Travel Basecamp web serie to compose the music of their four episodes in Portugal. The score caught the attention, and Samito decided to rework the songs with...
  • AlphaCub is the brainchild of Toronto-via-Halifax solo artist Marc-Antoine Robertson. Growing up on Canada’s east coast, you might remember a certain indie pop band named Soho Ghetto who released two acclaimed albums and a handful of nationwide tours. Ever since the band disbanded in 2014, Marc decided to move to Toronto to pursue his new solo project.  Channelling anthemic 80’s arena -rock with a twist of modern day synth-driven electronic pop, AlphaCub blurs the line between gritty rebellion...

  • We're always on the cusp of wanting to know what local Montreal designer Pedram Karimi has got up his sleeves. His avant-garde image brands him as a designer who likes to make garments that could stand-alone as art-pieces, and he definitely knows how to pick the right models to showcase his looks. His Spring/Summer 2016 campaign is in, and we are getting great vibes from it. Featuring long necks and perfect bowl-cuts on adrogynous models, filtered by a blue-silver tone, which ties in the old...
  • For the third season now, the new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Andy Warhol Footwear collection has gotten us fiending for its release on February 15th. This new collection, and on-going collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation features two of Warhol’s iconic pieces from the 1960’s - the Andy Warhol Cow wallpaper and Flowers in two options.  The bold contrast between the dark and the light gives these pairs of low tops and hi tops an even cooler complection under blacklights. Perfect for...
  • “Man braids” are apparently the newest trend that will hit the heads of menfolk this year. I’m sure their braids will look pair so well with other trends like beard baubles, mustache glitter, and whatever other Pinterest-fueled fad that looks more fun than practical. Beyond the fact that braids can’t be a new trend (cough cornrows cough), my main annoyance is with the name. Man-braids. Man. Braids. MAN. BRAIDS. It follows the same formula as the "man-bun". Adding 'man' in front of it is...

  • In case you forgot who Roosh V was, let me sully your mind with this summary: Roosh is the creator of The Return of Kings, a website that promotes “neo-masculinity”- which just a fancy way of saying a movement based on extreme insecurity and blatant misogyny. Roosh has sparked protests across the world after attempting to share his teachings about neo-masculinity and being a PUA (Pick Up Artist). Roosh received a lot of criticism for attempting meet-ups in Canada, which lead him to disguise...
  • Take some time-off complaining from the cold weather and enjoy a little bit of beauty from Montreal. That’s exactly what we get here with a video titled Little Big World, which captures Montreal in a way you probably haven’t seen before. Utilizing the trend of tilt shift photography, Joerg Daiber shot these stunning visuals in various spots incuding the Old Port, the Olympic Stadium and showcasing great views from Mount Royal in 3 adorable minutes. With the tilt shift process, Montreal...
  • The Hangover. A morning consisting of a fuzzy, fried and foolish brain. I shamefully walk into work (after the guy whose face or name I can’t even remember drops me off) and reminisce on the one night stand the night before. Where are my undies? Well fuck. Where's my phone? In the pool. Where's my dignity? Lost.  drank. Staring at the remnants of the kebab and goon and Vodka and Baileys and every other alcohol mixed to mankind infused vomit on my shoe, along...
