Debut release that appeared across my timeline. Smart tongue in cheek lyrics and a soul packed lush beat with plenty of chugging keyboards. Always a favourite.
Nice bit of squelchy Neo-soul here from James Vickery who has previously grabbed himself a Joe Hertz feature before setting out solo. No surprises that its Maths Time Joy on the production on this one. Big sound.
Damn son, love this. New from New Zealand native Villette. Check her out here!
Bubbling to the top of my most played tracks in recent weeks is this new track from Mullally. ‘Wonderful’ brilliantly kicks off with a contemporary shuffle groove that drags you into a big chorus and spits you out for a jazz nerd modulating key change. It’s modern production mixed with classic soulful songwriting. Big fan. And the Internet tells me Mullally is originally from Norfolk. It’s not often you read that.
Quite a ‘zesty neo-soul’ statement from Mullally. Looking forward to listening to what comes next.
These are some tracks we’ve been listening to and enjoying over the past week, including:
Kelly Ann Corfield‘s lovely track ‘Sway’ really caught our attention with the silky smooth vocals and lovely guitar sound. We believe she has a really big future and if she keeps producing excellent chilled out vibes like this then there’s very little to stop her!
Another track which caught our attention is the old school remix of Andres Sierra’s ‘Maxed Out’ by Andree. The beat is deep and reminiscent of a younger Craig David which provides Sierra’s vocals with an excellent accompaniment and the two appear to mix together wonderfully well.
The main vocal sample in Catching Flies‘ track ‘Change of Heart’ should be very familiar, it’s sampled from the wonderful Cheryl Lynne and her disco classic ‘Got to Be Real’. This track does great justice to a classic voice with it’s reinterpretation as well as chilled out vibe. The beat combined with a great piano composition has lead this to become a real favourite!
Swedish future superstar Bishat stuns with her song ‘Mine’. We think this song will have a serious impact on the musical landscape and it’s easy to see why! Her voice is seriously soulful and sounds even better when mixed with a wonderful beat, perfect for any mood and environment. We hope she keeps up the good work!
