Normally I hear Ellie Goulding or read her name and im like, swweerrrvveeeeee
But this remix is actually sick because it hits the Major Lazer and Biebs and Diplo sensibilities that I actually love in pop dance music. So I’m gonna continue to pretend to be tough and shit when I go out in public by punching babies in the face, but when I go home I will dance to some Ellie Goulding. Because it ain’t easy being a gangster.

This last week Canada saw the Juno Awards take place, Drake finally becoming interesting and LABS introduce us to their new track ‘Brave‘. Only one of those things I actually gave a shit about. You See.. LABS debut single ‘Down‘ has been moving people, and their followup looks like its doing much the same. ‘Brave‘ is a perfectly low-key chill out track which still holds a momentum that you’d expect form a synth-pop band. Lindsay Bryan sings her ass off perfectly within the instrumental and briefly contrasts a synth line that appears only once but will give you a nosebleed (in a good way).
Fan of James Blake and Chance the Rapper’s track ‘Life Round Here’? Here’s a sexy cover by Ellie Goulding featuring total badass Angel Haze. Haze is one of those artists that I just can’t support enough, she’s just the type of tough female rapper we need more of and is poised to become one of the first LGBT rap artists to achieve mainstream recognition. The song is similar to Blake’s version, yet pleasantly different – perfect if you’ve played the original to death.
