Just from the strength of the first soulful effort’ I Can’t Wait’ – featured on NEW LEASE MUSIC last month – BLAISE PASCAL‘s self-titled debut EP seems like a real contender.
In the five-track set, the London-based singer/songwriter adds ambient elements of hip-hop/boom bap and reggae to smooth futuristic (ish) soul (which I suspect is his trademark) – take it from me, this newcomer is no one-trick pony.
Overall, this EP serves as a great introduction into his endless talents and it would be very intriguing to see what he does with his future releases. Worth a trial; have a listen.
