“Struggling” is one of those tracks you hear right away and get into immediately. Drdr is 2 producers, Chris Campbell and Joe Woods, and one Vocalist, Donna Cursons. That’s all we know about this Brighton ensemble. But, in any case, the music should speak for itself. You can follow their Soundcloud page here.

Nick Zinner, of Yeah Yeah Yeahs fame, put his touch on this version of “Holding On for Life” by Broken Bells. Be sure to check out their sophomore record After the Disco, out February 4th on Columbia Records.

5.”From A Distance,” STL

If deep, deep house music is your thing, you’re gonna love this. I love this track because the bass is muffled, soft, which gives the whole thing an interesting sonic texture.

4.”40455,” James Blake

Really anything James Blake touches is gold so no need for me to try to sell you on this one. Another atmospheric, moody amalgamation of beautiful sounds and harmonies.

3.”Chorus,” Holly Herndon

WARNING: this track will prob only appeal to the sonically adventurous of you. 10,000 points if you can figure out what’s going on in the video, let alone the song.

2.”In The End (I Want You to Cry),” Tensnake

1.”F for You,” Disclosure featuring Mary J. Blige

Ever since Mary J. Blige made a surprise appearance with Disclosure at Terminal 5 in New York last week, this one has really torn the blogosphere to SHREDS. It’s a remake of “F for You,” this time featuring Mary J. on some bomb-ass house vocals. Seriously. When Mary comes in you will be yassssing all over the place. I’m not sure if she’s even interested in this but after listening to this 10,000 times all I can say is Mary, gurl, CAN YOU PLS DO A HOUSE RECORD??
