Soft, balmy synths form the foundation of this joyously warm and soothing track by London producer Adam Halogen, which features vocals by Ben Aizenberg.
Here's a brand new track by east London musician K H U S H I, set to be the lead track on the singer/songwriter's forthcoming debut EP.
Phantoms is a slow-burning, wistful pop song packed with lush vocal harmonies and delicate keyboard lines, which builds up masterfully to a driving, rhythmic crescendo.
K H U S H I enlisted the in-demand talents of Alt-J's producer Charlie Andrews to record the track, which suggests his short musical career is very much on an upwards trajectory.
Only Girl, aka Ellen Murphy, is a London-based singer with a dreamy, distinctly 90s R&B sound.
This track called Mountain combines simple, sparse percussion with lush, soaring vocal harmonies. Comparisons with fellow south-Londoner Jessie Ware immediately spring to mind, which suggests commercial success could be just around the corner for Only Girl.
Here's the latest single taken from New York indie-rockers Giga Herbs' debut album Mad Weird LP. Solaris starts off much more stripped-down than previous tracks we've featured by the band, but it doesn't take long for a nice dose of fuzzy, distorted guitar to kick in.
It's good to know there are still bands out there who know how to make a great-sounding guitar-based pop record.
Jungle have toned down the intensity of MØ's original track here, sacrificing the singer's raw energy in favour of a mellow-but-funky groove.
It's not exactly Miami Vice, but something about the track's synthy 80s sounds just felt right for cruising around in Miami's December sun.
UK singer-songwriter Sivu, aka James Page, seems to have spent most of 2013 on the verge hitting the big time and is surely set to explode in 2014. Working with in-demand producer Charlie Andrew, the man behind Alt-J's critically acclaimed debut album An Awesome Wave, should certainly help.
It features Sivu's typically ethereal vocals, with a guest appearance from singer Marika Hackman, all accompanied by a melancholy blend of pianos, guitars and a dark underlying electronic bass.
