Matthew Koma is one of those vocalists that shine on electric dance records. Poised to break out with a signature voice, I have highlighted two tracks you definitely need to check out, and a bonus acoustic version, your welcome.
Zedd ft. Matthew Koma – Spectrum
Alesso ft. Matthew Koma – Years
One of my favorite tracks from Chapter V, gets a video treatment. Trey has put out another quality album and still sits atop the R&B genre with the likes of Ne-Yo and Chris Brown. Yeauhhhhhhhhh (Trey Songz’s voice)
Hailing from Ithaca, that’s right Ithaca, the Ambassadors bring a fresh sound and a catchy song with “Unconsolable.” Below is the live version and studio version. These guys have amazing talent and hopefully will start getting some airplay. Recently they are on the soundtrack to EA’ Need For Speed: Most Wanted, so hopefully they get the exposure they deserve.
California native, Woody’s Produce, gives us a fresh take on some classics featuring rap’s greatest duo, Outkast. Here he takes UGK’s hit “International Players Anthem,” and adds some electric synths and acoustic guitar, making it a completely different sounding song. Will we ever see another Outkast album, who knows, Big Boi is doing big things on his own, but all these Andre 3000 features are starting to annoy me. Just get the damn thing done already.

Indescribable, the amount of practice and work that went into this to perform it live. Watch out Madeon.
Scott Mescudi is back with King Chip with new material off his upcoming album. Cudi handles the directing on this one and gives a nice party video, red solo cups and everything. His sing/rap style still works, I also recommend checking out his track on Cruel Summer, “Creepers.”
This is one of the first songs posted on this blog over a year ago. Now with the re-release of his mixtape trilogy, we finally get a visual for the song. Smooth R&B at its finest with a Drake verse as a reward for hanging in there till the end.
