Malaika – Falling For You by Malaika 

A few moons ago Malaika was the name of the hottest lady in my hometown. This song pretty much sounds like i remember her, always on the go and a full disco queen, with a smiling face underneath the neon lights. This commercial r&b pop tune by Malaika from the UK, should have everyone moving, in no time at all. Very generic in every sense, from songwriting to the riddem/groove, but very well executed and sure to cross genres and reach the mainstream in a good way, and leave a few smiling faces underneath the neon lights.

Room 47 by Joël Lobban 

Sweet seductive tune, i guess Room 47 is some kinda code that i am too lazy to google. The beat flows well and the singer has a sweet delivery, although there are some minor flaws, the track is super convincing. Will be interesting to see what he comes up with next. I see a bright future, next steps are crucial, when developing an artist. Follow the man via ::: ::: :::

 

Reasons by BentleyHendrixx 

This is heavy. Had this tune stuck on bloody repeat for the longest – need to pass it on to my gamer friends and the industry. This one brings the weight on anybody w/o ever being pretentious or acting awkward. This IS and feels REAL and after the first spin u’ll see how lit it really is! Will go down very well with the heads at Blackout and the likes. Should and will be a prime timer all over.
Mr understatement on this track really is Savage AF!

Darci – Seeing Colors

Not much to say here, but give it a listen and go from “unimpressed” to totally “captured” by this tune. Darci’s first offering, at least that i noticed w/o doing any research, left a great impression on me. He must have previous releases with 7k SC followers, but everything is a stream/ is a blur these days and nobody got time for that. And “Seeing Colours” manages to go from slightly weird to super modern state of the art zeitgeist pop. And it happens naturally, almost like a sonic remedy. Well done sir! Now we know your name.

Whimsical by Matt Hylom

Matt has a great style, imho he is an artist worth developing fully. These are great first steps, they just need to be spread & shared as much as possible. I can see this picking up after the summer. Good effort Matt! Wish you the best of luck with your music!

‘Whimsical’ is one of five tracks off my new EP, ‘Uncommon’

Sonny Step & TyC – Still Believe In Love

Great effort, in the best Boys II Men manner.

Blending hi-fi pop with a soulful rnb aesthetic, Still Believe In Love has an intricate yet organic drum track under a melting pot of masterful synth work. Setting the stage for Sonny to give a dynamic and moving vocal performance. This power ballad combines hifi sound with a Sonny’s retro-60’s aesthetic, and is sure to leave you feeling nostalgic !
