MAILBAG MONDAY: Woman E, Sing Me Insomnia, Emeli Sande, Patrick Hagenaar

I only started this column idea last week and already I have received a TRUCKLOAD of awesome cuts -- which made it actually really difficult to narrow down! You all are amazing! Keep sending your submissions in to! If I didn't get to you this week, rest assured -- so many different e-mails are starred and songs have been spinning in my Spotify. I will get to you eventually!

90's Influenced Electropop/Eurodance

Woman E is an indie London meets Berlin duo and have released a couple of stellar dancey singles ("Few and Far Between" & "Another Renaissance", both available on Spotify) between 2010-2011. They are currently gearing up for their third release, dubbed "Desire," in late February. "Desire" has a twinge of dreamy Kylie Mingoue meets "Video Killed the Radio Star" kind of club groove with an unrelenting bass pulse. Basically, it has club smash written all over it.

Radio-Friendly Pop Rock with a Punk Edge

Sing Me Insomnia (or SMI to the kids in the know) is a four-piece outfit based in Virginia that have developed a sizeable online presence through YouTube videos. Considering how well produced this little nugget of power pop is, I'm shocked these boys haven't yet been approached by a label! "Miss Me Now", their latest single released last month, is available through iTunes) and comes complete with solid vocals from their frontman, blazing guitar riffs and a Whoa-oh Whoa-oh Whoa-oh Whoa-oh hook that I've had stuck in my head all weekend.

Huge Dance Record Alert! If you like your subwoofers bouncing and to get lost in a swirl of blackhole repeat at the club, you need to give the Emeli Sande vs Patrick Hagenaar one-off bootleg of "Heaven" a try. It's one of those dancey mixes that within four seconds, you already like it -- mostly because it employs all of the necessary attributes of a super dance record. Best part, you can download it for free. Cha ching.
