Sam Dew is an American Hip-Hop singer/songwritter from out of Chicago, Illinois.  He is best known for writing the hook to the track “LoveHate Thing”, a single from Wale’s 2013 album “The Gifted”.  He is also credited for writing and performing on additional tracks for the same album which peaked at No. 1 on various Billboard charts.  He has also written for musicians that include Marsha Ambrosius, Rihanna, Mary J. Blige, and Jessie Ware.  He is currently signed to RCA Records and released his first EP album, that was cleverly titled, “Damn Sue” on April 7, 2015.

The EP only contained six tracks but each has a unique take on alternative soul.  His biggest and most popular track, “Air”, encompasses all of Dew’s best qualities of his singing and songwriting style and is worth a listen.  In an interview with Vibe.com, Dew says that the EP is more than just a play on his name.  “It started as a joke but it actually came in handy because ‘Sue’ became the woman that doesn’t exist in my life.  ‘Damn Sue’ is like damn the the woman I’m waiting for who doesn’t seem to exist anywhere but I know I’m waiting for her.”

Sam Dew is definitely a star on the rise.  Give a listen to his EP tracks below and see for yourself.

Gorgon City

Gorgon City, an electronic duo that consists of two North London-based producers, Kye “Foamo” Gibbon and Matt “RackNRuin” Robson-Scott began to collaborate and make hit songs in 2012.

The duo, best known for their 2013 single “Real” peaked at number 44 on the UK Singles Chart.  The group’s newest album release, “Sirens,” was released in 2014 and currently features two other very popular hits “Ready For Your Love” featuring MNEK and “Go All Night” featuring Jennifer Hudson.  “Ready For Your Love” reached number 4 on the UK Singles Chart.

The duos first collaboration session resulted in the creation of “The Crypt EP” featuring many unique artists such as Navigator, Rubi Dan, and Janai.  The EP was released on February 27, 2012.  A year later, on February 17, 2013, they collaborated with singer-songwriter Yasmin for the lead track of the “Real EP.”  Later that summer, with help from their collaboration with Clean Bandit, the duo released their next single “Intentions” and by the end of the year, the duo had toured the United States for the second time and helped support Rudimentary on their Australian dates.

With growing success and fame all around, the group continued to explore their sound.  The newest album “Sirens” has been their most successful album so far with three of their singles peaking within the UK Top 100 Charts.  This duo looks to just keep on pushing forward and I believe that they will soon become a household name within the electronic music scene.  Be sure to check out some of the duo’s biggest hits below and if you like what you hear, go out and pick up “Sirens” which is in stores now.
