Nelly Furtado launched her comeback in 2023 saying she wanted to work with DJs, and fulfilled that goal with last year’s Dom Dolla collaboration “Eat Your Man,” and now through her latest “Love Bites,” featuring SG Lewis and Tove Lo. A hypnotic, slinky club track written by the trio, produced by Lewis and sung by Furtado and Lo (whose recent work also includes playing venues like Red Rocks Amphitheater and The Shrine with Los-based female DJ collective Ladies of Leisure Angels). The song comes with a quick-cut music video starring all three artists and a pretty cool car, completely expanding on the dance floor vibe of Furtado’s revival.

“I felt called to return to the music of the DJ community,” Furtado says in a statement. “DJs were remixing my songs at concerts, clubs and on social media, and I realized how much people like to dance and escape to my music. “It’s the healthiest vice you can have and I love the opportunity to write music that allows people to escape more than anything.”

“When I push, I feel good. When I shoot, I feel good,” declares Argentine vocalist Taichu over a distorted synth by Skrillex and bass maestro Hamdi. The song blew up after being mocked at a Jyoty’s RinseFM set last year, and rightly so, as the production delivers toughness and swagger while maintaining the same sense of ease in its lyrics. Released via OWSLA, “Push” will likely get a lot of play this weekend at California’s Lightning in a Bottle festival, where Jyoty and Skrillex are on the bill.

LP Giobbi, “Sentir”

LP Giobbi arrives with his first song of the year with “Feel”. With a recurring piano motif, the gently unfolding house track is layered with strings and a vocal by Nigerian-born English singer Jacob Banks, creating a kind of place where she dances serenely with her eyes closed. In the midst of a summer festival organized by Giobbi that includes Movement this weekend in Detroit, Electric Forest and Defected Croatia, the producer sees the song as the beginning of a new chapter, adding that “collaborating with artists outside of the space of “The dance is always incredible.” , but being able to work with Jacob Banks was a dream come true. His voice transcends genres and allowed me to be really creative in building the song around his voice.”

In fact, the track is all bounce, fizz and (apparently) marimba, with the vocals giving the song a pop edge and a sing-along melody and all of its parts building into a fast-paced improvisation that’s not only joyful, but That, in a world that moves so quickly. of dance throws, also memorable.
