Liana Bank$ // OFF

Liana Bank$ is generating lots of hype at the moment and it’s easy to see why. Her arrival on the scene with her viral hit ‘LVLUP’ and her smooth collaboration with the excellent Mura Masa in the track ‘Leave Me Alone’ meant that future projects were always going to be eagerly awaited. ‘OFF’ displays Jhene Aiko-esque vibes and seductive vocals which complements the simple, yet somewhat entrancing beat. Expect her star to rise very quickly if she keeps producing chilled out and vibesy tunes like this one. Em

 

Vasser // Stay With Me

As the success of Mura Masa has shown, people are in love with a bit of low-key chopped trap beats and mangled vocals. I very much include myself in that group as Mura Masa has been making near-constant appearances on my Spotify for the last couple of year.

Vasser is an exciting young producer taking this sound and running with it. ‘Stay With Me’ is my favourite of Vasser’s slick collection of tracks. Wordless vocals float above bubbling synths with led by breathy flute lines and tuned percussion that sounds like levelling up on your favourite 8-bit computer game. So much groove.

Make sure to check out his remix of Lewis Lane’s ‘Lets Dance’ which is in fact uses the same samples that Mura Masa uses in ‘Lovesick Fuck’. Thats no coincidence.

Looking forward to hearing what comes next for Vasser.
