"A Heartbreak" was a favourite here at AU HQ, and today we've been enjoying this remix by ODESZA. In fact, it’s little surprise the two artists work so seamlessly together. Check it out right here:

Listen below and let us know what you think, we're pretty confident you'll immediately take to this highly spirited song.

Single Stream: Kele "Coasting" (2014)

Progressing along to that fateful day when Bloc Party frontman Kele's second solo album is released we get yet another taste of the dark shades of house that he has been dabbling in. More focused on atmosphere and the swirling emotion of his gorgeous falsetto, "Coasting" is a lusty late-night kind of song with strains of R&B and house merging to give us one very exciting second single.

Single Stream: Kimbra "90s Music (Client Liason Re-Work)" (2014)

Look. We love Kimbra. So it’s fitting we saved the best until last this week. She’s releasing an EP filled with remixes of her awesome track “90s Music” – and the final track is with a close collaboration of up-and-comers Client Liason. It’s not a remix – it’s a complete re-record and rewrite. And it’s awesome. Check it out below.

Single Stream: Kendrick Lamar "i" (2014)

Kendrick Lamar's global profile has reached astronomical heights, so much so that when he drops the first taste of his follow up to the universally acclaimed Good Kid, M.A.A.D City the internet is bound to go insane; and it has. Kendrick Lamar has dropped a left-field, funk-dipped track which is reported to serve as the first single off the new album. Producer Rahki has taken a common approach in hip-hop, sampling a classic track by The Isley Brothers (That Lady) to give King Kendrick a gorgeous palette on which to drop his incredibly potent rhymes.
