Max has shown me this nice little piece of music a few days ago it’s a flip of Frank Ocean‘s ‘Solo’ by producer Louis Futon. Totally like the sample chops and the trumpet here.

Stumbled upon this beautiful redo of Teedra Moses ‘Be Your Girl’ by an artist called Blissfall and want to share it with you. This one is out for a while but that doesn’t matter to me as i think it is worth shareable and if you like this one, you might also like Kaytranada’s remix from 2011, too. Free Download right here.
A dancehall r&b blend with a lot of pop appeal, straight from the island of Saint Lucia, with a proper sexy Caribbean feel. No doubt when Rayvon is on the track, but still the whole flow just moves like a snake through the track, and if there is anything to critisize, it is that the track could have been produced a bit more like Drakes Controller or Hotline Bling, bc the feel is already there with the super hooky and flawless vocals. Smells like it’s remix time, but a good thing this track came out, so that we can keep an eye on Jean Atem & his buddy Rayvons future endeavours! I guess, as always, continuity is the key to success here, and let’s see what else this new impeccable duo can cook up.
Spend Time is a collaborative track between Jean Atem and his best friend and music partner RAYVON. It blends an upscale Caribbean sound with notes of pop and dance. The fusion is catchy and captivating and its mainstream presence is undeniable.
Head in my hands, Heart in my mouth..
First single from ‘The Aftrparty’ EP. Available on this weeks New Music Playlist on Spotify and according to the labels track record, this epic tune will around for many months to come. Definitely one of the most interesting tracks so far in 2017, which is a great year so far, and the arrival of Aftrparty on the international scene only underlines that. The perfect betw a melodramatically charged pop tune and a subtle zeitgeisty but still synaptic processable production, upgraded by the absolutely stunning vocals of Chloe Kissner.
Or in the words of their label:
“Alternative R&B act Aftrparty – the creative outlet of producer / instrumentalists Alex and Cian – got together as teenagers at a London high school in 2016. Their first original track “Hold Me Down” quickly garnered attention online, shooting to #1 on Hype Machine and cementing the duo as accomplished mixers of electronic, trap and hip-hop influences. Sonically, Alex’s production draws on the electronic dance beats of Flume & Mura Masa, as well as dark, 808-heavy influences. Cian blends in the distorted guitar and basslines of Travis Scott with elements of Frank Ocean’s organic palette forming a final product which fuses unique electronic and recorded sounds with inspired songwriting and intense production.”
About the song:
“Where I’m At started off as a heavy EDM beat Alex made in the summer of 2016. After shelving it for a few months, the duo brought it back to life with the unmistakeable sound of Cian’s guitar and bluesy vocals from Houston-based talent Chloe Kissner. Cian reworked Chloe’s initial lyrical ideas to reflect on what he was dealing with at the time – the repetitive, unsatisfying nature of doing the same thing every week and weekend is used as a metaphor for creating a perfect illusion of a girl, overcome with unfulfilling thought patterns. The instrumental blends Alex’s love of Mura Masa- style synths and 808 drops with Cian’s incorporation of Frank Ocean- esque guitar lines and clean verses.”
Be. the. One.
Tired of soul music yet? One of our very own boys, Shoyu, and his partner Golow, who is a super nice & talented fellow, laid down this soulfull gem of track, completely ignoring the standard arrangement patterns of today and going more for an intuitive flow of the prevailing vibe, beautifully laid down by the minimalist instrumentation and Tierras super sexy vocals. So if you think Kaytranada is the shiat, this will surely please you, and if you liked soulful loft music of the mid to late 80s, which has survived up until today through each new generation transporting the vibe and the originals in their dj sets and productions —> this one is most def for you. And since this is their very first effort and they have just set up their socials last Thursday, while they were already trending for a full week on Spotify USA’s & Canada’s Viral Chart and many more playlists, i am super curious to see where the path will lead these two young guns. Welcome gents, you are much appreciated in the world of music! Just the way i like my spicy cereal!
