Cookiee Kawaii Teams Up With Rocky Snyda For Let Me Rock

New Jersey-based Cookiee Kawaii and Rocky Snyda partner for the club/RnB single “Let Me Rock.”  Kawaii promises a seduction to a girlfriend with a pulsating beat and meandering synthesizer in the background. Snyda’s rap is a command to move hips in the bedroom and on the dancefloor as the pace accelerates. Kawaii describes “Let Me Rock” as a song  for “people who love club music but want more of a R&B vibe.” The single will be on her forthcoming Club Soda Vol. 3 album following her recently released “Pretty Girl.” It was 2021 when she released Vanice and Club Soda Vol. 2 arrived in 2020 not long after her viral introduction with “Vibe” in 2019. “Let Me Rock” is Kawaii’s latest assist to New Jersey’s club music legacy. 


Crystal Waters Celebrates International Women’s Day With Exclusive Mix On SiriusXM’s Utopia

Crystal Waters celebrates International Women’s Day and Women’s History month with a mix on SiriusXM’s Utopia. The Queen of House Music debuts the mix at 3 PM ET today and it plays again at 8. The mix will remain on the app for two weeks. She says, 

“I love that Utopia plays some of the older hits but also makes way for new songs from the same artists. You can expect to hear some of my favorite House tracks on this mix and lucky for me, some of them are my friends. There’s a lot of upbeat songs that I’m sure everyone can sing along to.” 
Waters will forever be known for her 1991  dance classic “Gypsy Woman (She’s Homeless)” which helped bring house music to the masses.  She recently dropped “2B Luv” which was remixed by another house legend Todd Terry. The holiday also matters to her and she shared what the day means to her.
“To me, these mean standing up for equality for everyone. It means no more stereotypes. It means I can do anything while also giving recognition to those who have been examples of this and inspiration to others. My grandmother, my mother, my aunts and my sister. These are women who, besides the odds, raised children, made sure they were educated and stood with high morals.”
Check out Waters’s mix and her monthly I Am House podcast both on SiriusXM. 

Listen: Noise Cans Feat. merchant and Jane Macgizmo-Can’t Be Moved

Bermudian producer Noise Cans collaborates with merchant and vocalist Jane Macgizmo on the club track “Can’t Be Moved.” Noise Can’s use of a classic house beat is embedded with cymbal crashes adding more energy and drama to the song. The video is a colorful excursion outside with Noise Cans maintaining his anonymity by wearing a modernized Gombey mask as Macgizmo sings and walks through the park. Noise Cans was ironic when he called the single “Can’t Be Moved” because the title goes completely against the music’s command.


Lyric Christian & Robert PM Drop Video For Hands Off (My Crown)

Robert PM and Lyric Christian warn others to keep their “Hands Off (My Crown)” with the rhythm of house. The Brooklyn producer who is also one-half of the indie band French Horn Rebellion collaborated with singer/songwriter model Christian to craft the lo-fi dancefloor seduction. The video is a clever capsulation of the vibe filmed on an iPhone while they were en route to a club. Christian explained the song’s inspiration in a statement: 

“This song is all about how you make yourself feel—no one else. It’s a sexy soulful house track and whenever I listen to it I’m reminded of who I am—a badass, confident and beautiful woman who is in control of her own narrative.” 

There is no word on whether these two have a full-length project in the works but “Hands Off (My Crown)” indicates future musical chemistry.
