Over the past year, the gifted vocalist, Mark Johns, has been making quite a name for herself, showcasing her pipes on handful of jams from her Moving Castle squad and more. For her latest effort, she’s teamed up with Australia’s bass music specialist, Sable, for a chilled-out cover of “Ni**as In Paris” by Jay-Z and Kanye West.

After dropping her single, “Twisting My Mind,” just last week, producer/DJ Lupe Fuentes returns with “Endlessly,” a fresh, groove-driven track featured on Safe Music’s Skill Box Vol. 5 compilation. Born in Colombia, raised in the club scene of Spain, and now living in Los Angeles, this rising underground house music specialist is quickly emerging as a notable force, especially since she’s already seeing support from Dubfire, Gorgon City, Claptone, Tensnake, and more.
