Brooklyn singer-songwriter Danielle Parente is getting set to release her new album Dark Eyes on 18 September, and on the heels of the smouldering R&B of “Very Last Breath (5 Minute Stares)” she now grabs your attention with an audacious and inspired electronic cover of Chris Isaak’s classic tune “Wicked Game”.

South London rapper and producer Conrad Kira prides himself on being an outsider. A denizen of abandoned industrial buildings, where he creates massive sub-bass-driven beats that mirror the dystopian decay of the city, he combines harsh, bracing arrangements and biting, poetic social commentary.
