EP Review: Crisis – Phé

With downtempo, electronic soundscapes and an occasional soaring of the guitar riffs, PHÉ gives afterhours R&B as we know it a dark and sinister makeover through her latest EP entitled EP, ‘Crisis’.

Through the dense(ish) arrangements, the Vancouver-born/Los Angeles based singer/songwriter’s crisp and sassy vocals poke through, offering the EP that much-needed lightness.

If you love a contemporary take on soulful R&B, then you’ll definitely enjoy this pretty neat package. Check her out below:

Song of the Day: Caesar – Frenzy

Hailing from my neck of the woods – Hackney, baby! – FRENZY comes right through with his first single of 2019 entitled ‘Caesar’, taken from upcoming project ‘Heat of The Moment’.

Produced by Eyes, this new track is nothing short of his trademark – combining a multitude of genres to create a unique and dark hip-hop vibe – which underpins the east London rapper’s matter-of-fact lyricism.

The youngster’s catalogue of music, which reflects his life struggles and seeing close ones locked up or killed in his community, has raised eyebrows from major music tastemakers as well as generating loyal support from BBC 1Xtra DJs Jeremiah Asiamah and Robert Bruce.

Hailed as a local celebrity for his charity work and a mentor for his music to young aspiring artists, FRENZY also runs a workshop called Fast Forward which provides free studio time, production and engineering, which this time has resulted in a compilation titled ‘Fast Forward Vol. 1’.

Check out his first drop of the year below:
