By teaming up with one of last year’s breakout acts for their debut single release, the Copenhagen production duo Code Walk have got off to running start. ‘Guess What’ feat. Smerz has been picking up plays and riotous support from Julie Adenuga at Beats 1, Phil Taggart and Huw Stephens  at BBC Radio 1, Jamz Supernova at BBC Radio 1 Xtra, Lauren Laverne, Don Letts, and Nemone at BBC Radio 6 Music and has also found a home on the Amazing Radio playlist. Things are kicking off online for the Scandinavian collaborators too, with support from the likes of Dummy, i-D, Indie Shuffle, Ja Ja Ja, London On The Inside and Nialler9 in its first week and much more to come, so keep your eyes peeled for Code Walk and Smerz…


fjerFJER (Online)

Based in NYC but hailing from Denmark, Fjer’s “absolute cracker” of a new single has been championed by The Line of Best Fit as their top track of week and featured in Spotify‘s Weekly Buzz playlist. With the video premiering now on The 405 and with posts flooding in from over 40 blogs ‘Better’ is showing no sign of slowing. The Okayplayer-approved artist is expected to release her first full-length this year on QUINTIC, so again, stay alert.

French electro outfit N U I T make their first mark outside of their home territory in a big way with this in-depth feature with The Creators Project. The interview digs deep into the director, Cedric Rolando’s obsession with synaesthesia and serves as a world premiere for two incredible videos, presented by their unique splash page concept. These stunning clips have also caught the attention of Vice’s Kaltblut Magazine this week, adding to their growing list of supporters across the continent, including Tsugi and Trax Mag.
