Billy Winn – Busy Body

Back in the day international DJs would hear a new US record in a store and get excited thinking about busting these groundbreaking productions on their club systems to their music fans. Genres of music wasn’t important, it was the sound of the production that mattered. Think Herbie Hancock “Rockit” or Man Parrish ‎- Hip Hop, Be Bop (Don’t Stop), or Was Not Was “Walk The Dinosaur”, most definitely not disco but room filling tracks. The Original Mix of Busy Body is like those top tunes, it’s a fantastic production that defies genre and excites the ears of a DJ. Check it out and the Baby Weight Remix deserves equal attention with its bass-dropping beats. A great release for Billy Winn on Ferocious Music with his story about busy bodies nosing their way into things, too many things.

MiCCY – Long Run ft. Charbel

Cape Town-born, Brisbane-based MiCCY returns with her new single Long Run , featuring Sydney rapper Charbel, one part of Sydney collective BOOMCHILD.

Born from a post-gig session in Sydney, BOOMCHILD producers Finbar Stuart & Riley Hilder (Ms Thandi, Urthboy, Maina Doe) alongside James Baldwin on guitar, surround MiCCY’s effortless R&B vocals with wonky synths, metallic drums & super lush bass to craft an ode to sticking to your guns for the long run, and finding your ride or die people to go on that journey with.

“I’ve never really heard songs that are about longevity. I’m at the very beginning stages of this whole entire process of being an artist and I’m really in it for the long run. It’s essentially an ode to myself, like Micayla, you’ve gotta grind. This is what you’ve got to do. This is what you’re here for.”

The 21-year-old has crafted a sound with her collaborators, including DVNA, Bencio, JAIM and Sumatra, that draws in elements of jazz, funk & soul whilst sticking to her vocal inspirations amongst Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston & Victoria Monet to bring an effortless diva pop energy to her sound.

That music taste is one born from osmosis for MiCCY. Living across multiple cities growing up, from Cape Town to Aotearoa and now in Brisbane, the music her multi-generational musical family brought her up on has remained one consistent feature of MiCCY’s surroundings.

“When my mum was trying to get me to stop crying as a baby, she would put a tape of Michael Jackson on the TV and I would immediately stop crying!!! She would leave me there to do whatever she needed to do and I would be mesmerised, totally content and I’d stop crying.”

From contemporary R&B on her Mum’s side to more traditional gospel, soul & jazz on her Dad’s, those natural sensibilities are markedly present on Long Run, with her undying love for collaboration & connection taking those elements and modernising them.

Critically acclaimed in her home state as a two-time (2019, 2021) finalist at the Queensland Music Awards in the soul / R&B / funk category and as a 2020 finalist in the prestigious Carol Lloyd Womxn in Music Award, that love has spread across the country with adds to Spotify’s New Music Friday AU/NZ, RnB Connect,Pop ‘n’ Fresh & On Our Radar, alongside radio play on Triple j’s Home & Hosed, FBi, 4ZZZ and The Edge 96.1.

Elle Murphy – Pressure

Bursting with sweet flavours of pop, soul and groove – Melbourne’s Elle Murphy is storming into the music scene with a new single that will undoubtedly demand its place in your playlist.

Written about feeling anxious in romantic situations – Murphy’s debut single “Pressure” explores the inner tangle that weaves both intense desire and the want to take things slow. Influenced by the likes of Dua Lipa, BENEE and WAFIA, “Pressure” hosts a grooving bass line, a soft, sultry vocal and a beat ready to make you dance.

Self claimed as the “favourite song [she’s] written”, the soon-to-be pop icon has worked alongside established producers Alex Markwell (Mark Ronson, Silk City, Portugal the Man), Ben Oldland (KYE, JAYDEAN) to create this 18-month in the making masterpiece.

Greyson Chance – Hellboy

Global pop artist and musician, Greyson Chance, releases his latest single ‘Hell Boy’ along with the pre-order for his upcoming EP Trophies.

In April 2010, a video of Chance performing Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” at his middle-school talent show was uploaded to YouTube and went viral and caught the attention on Ellen DeGeneres.

Since then his music taste has shifted towards indie rock and alternative electronic pop. He released his ‘Somewhere Over My Head’ EP in 2016 followed by a number of singles since then.

At the end of August 2020, Greyson released ‘Bad To Myself where he opened up to his fans about his ongoing struggle with anorexia and how he was able to find the strength to begin healing.

Alanito feat. Dara – You’re Not Alone 2021

Who doesn’t know the timeless classic of the 90s “You’re Not Alone” (original by Olive)? This song has shaped the youth of many! DJ and producer Alanito has teamed up with singer Dara and breathes life back into this song in the modern version of a deep house interpretation.

The end result is impressive. The first to hear the successful remake was none other than the songwriter of the original Robin Taylor-Firth and his verdict was “Good version (…) well done”.

Alanito and Dara want to remind everyone that we should show solidarity with one another and that no one is alone during these times. You’re not alone!
