Dezeen Music Project: Phantoms
by K H U S H I

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.

You can listen to K H U S H I's debut single Magpie here.

Dezeen Music Project: Magpie
by K H U S H I

London Design Festival kicks off next week so we thought it was only right to focus on music by some of the city's upcoming musical talents on Dezeen Music Project over the next few weeks.

East London musician K H U S H I has had a busy year since we featured his track When You Start on Dezeen Music Project in September 2012 and has been getting increasingly more airplay on Radio 1.

In October he'll be releasing his debut single, a heartfelt love song called Magpie. This is a new radio-friendly edit of the track, which he has just finished mixing, but the extended version is definitely worth a listen too.

Dezeen Music Project: When You Start
by K H U S H I

East London musician K H U S H I is enjoying a seriously creative streak, bringing out a new track almost every week. We featured his first track on Dezeen Music Project earlier in the month, and this new one follows in a similar vein. Alternately soaring and intimate vocal melodies drive the song forward, with unshowy but effective keyboard and guitar parts providing backing and occasional embellishment.

Dezeen Music Project: Who Knows?
by Strong Asian Mothers

Strong Asian Mothers is another east London band, and includes K H U S H I (who we featured on Dezeen Music Project on Friday) on vocals and keyboards. But while Friday's track was gentle and tender, the big, dirty synth that underpins Who Knows? is anything but.

We will be featuring tracks by Strong Asian Mothers in our first Dezeen Live show at 100% Design during the London Design Festival.

Dezeen Music Project: Seven Years Old
by K H U S H I

We've never shied away from being eclectic on Dezeen Music Project, so after the glitchy, industrial intensity of Yuri Suzuki's track on Monday, we thought we'd change the vibe up completely with this tender pop song by upcoming east London musician K H U S H I.

The track's tone is set by its warm and fuzzy opening keyboard drone, before building to a gentle crescendo with layered vocal harmonies, chiming acoustic guitar hook and increasingly energetic drums.
