Harleighblu - Futurespective EP 2

Harleighblu - Futurespective EP2 (Digital EP, Tru Thoughts, 2015)

As promised by the first volume released earlier in june 2015, UK vocalist Harleighblu keeps on exploring the thin line between electronic production with her modern R&B/soul/hip hop compositions. From the in-your-face crunchy future beats and catchy hook of 'Real Good feat. Spectrasoul' to the synths'n'funk breaks of 'Forget feat. Captain Supernova' or the squelchy & slow-paced 'Another...

Once again, the selection gathers some great covers...

Harleighblu - Futurespective EP (Digital EP, Tru Thoughts, 2015)

Following up on her 'Forget Me Not' debut album, R&B/hip hop singer Harleighblu is back with three new tracks, Mmm feat. Dr Zygote', a fuzzy gospel-humming tale of lost shoes, 'I feat. Lost Midas', a lustful beats'n'soul piece, and 'Meant To Be feat. Azure' rightfully described as a Madonna/FKA Twigs hybrid. With a voice so unique, it's no suprise to see Harleighblu trying out her skills with...

The Best of 2014

It's already february 2015 and this article comes late - which always better than never! Digital sales have now become a thing of the past for many, since a bit of notoriety gets your music available for free in just a few hours after release, and since the taxation has now changed in Europe for exporting digital products (that's a 20% downfall for us in France on digital exports). Most have...

Brighton's finest Tru Thoughts Recordings is already 15 years old, and still one of the leading labels in the UK after all these years.

Harleighblu Whos That Girl

Harleighblu - Who's That Girl (Digital Single, Tru Thoughts, 2014)

Laying some deep vocals over a dusty break loop, some delicate guitar and soulful horns, Harleighblu continues to amaze with the 4th single extracted from her album 'Forget Me Not' released nearly a year ago already. A fantastic cover bringing a new life to the Eurythmics hit!! The digital single comes with 4 bonus tunes: a storming, old school & cool drum'n'jazz remix of 'I Believe' by...

Paris DJs Best Albums of 2013

Paris DJs presents The 50 Best Albums of 2013

This year's best albums selection was the hardest one to make since we started being active on the musical web in 1996. There's a simple reason for that: we had never been that prolific as a label before. With 52 releases on Paris DJs (singles, albums, compilations or mixes) during the 52 weeks of 2013, most of our time has been spent cooking our own stuff rather than listening to the amazing...
