3. Velvet Negroni

As his name reveals, Velvet Negroni is brimming with creativity and hypnotic sounds.

4. Raphel Saadiq

Raphael Saadiq has been a major influence in the music scene without you even realizing it. With Grammy wins, Oscar nominations and an impressive list of collaborations – ranging from Erykah Badu to Stevie Wonder, to D’angelo – it would be a crime to miss this.

5. Papooz


The indie-pop kings from Paris liven up a bossa nova style with choppy guitar work and infectious choruses that you’ll be humming for days. It’s a hipster af but it’s brilliant.

6. Shigeto

The Michigan-born artist designs fractured rhythms that draw on Motown jazz, using a range of mediums at his disposal.

 8. Jaques Greene

The French-Canadian producer has been making the deep house genre his playground for almost a decade. The club music, simmering with subtle acid and ambient undertones will rip up any dance floor.

9. Benjamin Gibbons


Death Cab For Cutie’s, Benjamin Gibbons, will you give you all the feels with slow, sweet and sometimes sad melodies.
