Song of the Day: Ghost Town – Quad Zerimar

Taken from his eponymous debut EP, QUAD ZERIMAR‘s track, ‘Ghost Town’ focuses on the theme of addiction, portraying Quad to be addicted to a girl who is already in a relationship and invites her to his ghost town, where he feels lonely. When she finally accepts his invitation, it all turns lively and romantic – and when she leaves, another more sombre addiction becomes present – drugs – as he doesn’t know how to cope without her.

Throughout the song, there are references to the ghost town – carousel, empty public houses/bars, ferris wheels – accompanied by background adlibs, crazy vocal ranges with hidden meanings.

So listen up, as every time you hit play on this trap-hop offering, you’ll hear something new…

Hip-Hop Duo Smoothe Hours Drops Brand New Track, ‘Red Room’

An intimate introduction to upcoming debut EP, ‘Darkest Before Dawn’ – set for release later this month – SMOOTHE HOURS‘ afterhours effort, ‘Red Room’, chronicles the first-hand experience of a climactic night, starting with infatuation by a dancer and taking things further by going to a private room, the red lights representing love and passion within the moment.

“We wanted to illustrate the seriousness of love and different aspects of affection, whether in a relationship or single. Sometimes the natural desire for sexual fulfilment outweighs the feeling of love. Sending out an invite to the Red Room can be compared to a mating call which is a primal instinct of human nature” – Smoothe Hours

Song of the Day: Demon – Fayme

Heavily inspired by Bon Iver, James Blake, Yung Lean and Travis Scott, UK artist FAYME‘s offering, ‘Demon’, is a portfolio of experimental sounds with ominous vocals that results in an enjoyable night time vibe.

With the aim to create a Bon Iver esque trap song,  Fayme uses his producing, engineering and vocal skills to create his own genre which he likes to call, “Neon Trap” – a dark eerie instrumental that allows him to create techno esque synths that work well with his vocals.
