Powerful new song from Rag N Bone Man as he continues his rise to commercial success. Human has been getting a lot of much deserved hype since its release last week, helped along by a great video too. The song is available to buy now via iTunes.


New project from Ven and Adam Black, as they celebrate women everywhere on the Nightcaps EP. Adam Black provides the vocals, with Ven dropping bars over a selection of beats, resulting in six solid tracks. I don’t much info on the artists themselves, but look forward to hearing more from them in the future.

Beautiful neo soul bliss from Bristol vocalist Eva Lazarus, as she records a live performance of her Amsterdam track. The video was made by BD Film.

Sublime sounds here, as a new video surfaces from the excellent Robert Glasper project, Everything Is Beautiful. The album’s aim was to take on the music of Miles Davis and breathe new and contemporary life into it, with the help of artists like Bilal, Illa J, Laura Mvula and the neo-soul goddess, Erykah Badu. Ms. Badu is the main feature on the new video, as she brings her sultry vocals to a reinterpretation of the 1974 classic, Maiysha (So Long).

Knox Brown – the Birmingham resident and brains behind a string of hits for the likes of Beyonce, Jay Z, Mary J Blige and Aloe Blacc – just released this new track with Anderson .Paak. No Slaves is taken from Knox’s Searching EP, which is due out in August. Pre-orders are available here.

The first video from Children of Zeus debuted on Complex yesterday and it is a beauty. Check out Still Standing and then go cop the single over at Bandcamp.

Great new track from New York singer Roxiny, as she hooks up with producer Cake Kills, for Young Sinners & Saints.

Link Up is the latest release from the excellent union of Anderson .Paak and Knxwledge, taken from their NxWorries EP, which was released on Stones Throw. The video was directed by Calmatic.

More new music from Rag N Bone Man, following in the footsteps of his excellent video, Lay My Body Down. Solemn vibes, strong vocals, backed up by some tight production from Mark Crew, who produced the forthcoming album.

Got a promo for this track sent to me today and I am posting it cos I am intrigued more than anything else. Hard to categorise, thought it was an instrumental until some slow vocals came in. The video is also strange, but strange is often good and I think this works, although I’m not sure what it works as. Read the rest of this entry »
