New Music Video: Swimming – Cherri V (ft. Roxxann)

Beginning the year with sultry single ‘Swimming’,  which has been garnering strong early support from BBC 1Xtra plus others, CHERRI V returns with the accompanying visuals for her latest offering.

Produced by Asylum 33, who have previously worked with Tinie Tempah, Mr. Eazi, Shakka, and Bonkaz, among others, the music video for ‘Swimming’ sees Cherri V and RoxXxan bringing a more relaxed and organic visual element to the experimental R&B production, as they party among friends, while the British R&B/Soul singer/songwriter gets to know her leading man, without the usual pressures that come with meeting someone new.

Speaking of the inspiration for her ‘Swimming’ visuals, British R&B/Soul singer/songwriter said, “I’m glad Asylum 33 were able to capture that house party relaxed feel. I also wanted to take a little more of a casual approach for this video, compared to ‘Leave Me Be’, and shove my real friends in front of the camera lol. The shots in the pool were a highlight for me! I’m really proud of this visual”.

EP Review: Dreamlife – J Kas

The reason why I admire this guy so much – and is forever welcomed on this blog – because he’s fearless, always coming with something different every single time.

His previous projects ‘Snapchat’ and ‘One Six’ is a mix bag of electro dance with Latin flair, spiced up banishment and smooth after hours jams. On the other side of the spectrum, his recent collaboration with Cellar Door Moon Crow sees the Sheffield hip-hop contender step up to the plate and rip through the sporadic rock chords.

Now J.KAS turn his hands to something completely different with latest project, ‘Dreamlife’. Named after a London producer who produced some of his past materials – including ‘Cali Dreaming’ and ‘To The Top’ (from One Six EP) – the four-track set possess a strong of presence hazy golden hip-hop/boombap, where this BBC introducing artist’s smooth delivery rapidly slides through the bars of each track.

Never the one to sit back and relax, J.KAS took his latest set on tour – named after the EP- across Europe, visiting Belgium, Paris, Porto and Lisbon where he encouraged the locals of each city to get involved in the creative process of the music videos.

Here’s your chance to check out the visuals for first single from the EP ‘Overtime’ released today…and expect a whole load of visuals from this guy in the near future.
