2. Above & Beyond: Acoustic

This holy trinity is all about kicking it up a notch! Not only are they releasing the acoustic album, but also a film that’s captured their performance at Porchester Hall in London last year and the story behind this acoustic project. The film will be released on January 24 on Vice’s THUMP channel, while the album is slated to release on January 28. We’ve already got goosebumps!

In October 2013, Porter updated his fans on Facebook with the announcement of his upcoming album. He said that the album is almost ready and also spoke about what the album focuses on. We are truly excited to hear what this enticer has in store for us this year:

hey facebook people. -[✞ – ✞]- i know it’s been a while since i’ve posted on here. you deserve an update about what’s up with me lately.

i’m in southeast asia at the time of writing. bangkok, thailand, specifically. i’m midway through a little tour of this part of the world, and then after that i’m going on tour in australia with the m machine for a few weeks, which should be awesome too. it’s been so cool and weird encountering fans in the streets of places i’ve never set foot on before – the earnest love i feel from total strangers is seriously moving. knowing that real people care about your music and shows and taste, even after three years, is more inspiring than you’d think. i guess that’s one advantage established artists have. thank you guys.

i talk about it constantly on twitter, too, but in case you’ve missed it somehow: i’ve spent like the last year-and-a-half writing an album. it’s really close to done. this record focuses on being emotional and beautiful and vast-sounding and i feel more strongly about it than anything i’ve ever done in my life. i’m also art directing the whole multimedia aspect of the album – i don’t want to give away exactly what that means quite yet, but i’m spending no insignificant amount of time on it.

anyway. that’s my life right now. i’m dying to show you new stuff.
i love you all


10. Madeon: TBA

This prodigy has it all figured out! After listening to tracks like ‘Finale’ and ‘Technicolor’, it’s quite hard to believe a teenager has produced them! Well, Madeon knows what he’s doing, and right now, he’s focused on releasing his debut album:
