As seen earlier this week on Big Stereo , VEGA announces the exciting debut of his very own premiere EP 'Well Known Pleasures' (AVAILABLE ONLINE MAY 19TH! ) on Vogue College Records.

Formerly the front man of Ghosthustler, Austin based Alan Palomo returns as the brains behind his new project VEGA, whose synth-pop rhythms, harmonies, dreamy vocoded vocals and upbeat, disco-style have quickly attracted a growing fan-base of loyal followers – catapulting the name and the music amongst some of the biggest names right now. He has had recent collaborations with artists like Todd Edwards (Daft Punk), Treasure Fingers, Futurecop, Kill the Noise, and feature vocals on Miami Horror's smash-hit 'Make You Mine' .

Full of lush synths, sweet filter sweeps, and a serious vocal presence, VEGA's debut track 'No Reasons' delivers a pulsating house beat with a chorus hook that will have you singing along and bobbing your head. This is sure to be a huge summer track!

Grab it - -----> VEGA - No Reasons

If this track is any indication of VEGA's talent, I will be on the lookout for more of this house goodness and so should you!

Watch VEGA play 'No Reasons' LIVE opening up for Crystal Castles last month in Austin, Texas:

Micachu - Jewellery

Imagine if Bjork, circa Medulla, created a punk record. Throw in a little dubstep and quirky vocals and you get Micachu (Mica Levi), a 21 year old female producer, DJ and MC from the UK. Her debut `Jewellery` (with backing band The Shapes) is produced by Matthew Herbert, which doesn`t hurt.

Experimentation is the name of the game here as Micachu uses anything from toy keyboards, vacuum cleaners, bottles, odd hums and sometimes garbled vocals to create a truly eclectic album. There are very dancable tracks like `Just in Case` (that has a trippy Santagold or M.I.A. feel) and `Goldene Phone", which is one of the more accessable track on the album. Then there are tracks like `Eat your heart` and the album closer `Turn me well` that are more abstract and sometime hard to listen to. Overall the album is fun and quirky, if you are brave enough to listen.

It`s catchy,it`s pop,but it`s also a bit of art. Micachu is very precocious and it remains to be seen what she will do in the future. For now, she is ceratinly making her own way through the musical landscape of today.
