Song of the Day: Throwback – Dizzy Rambunctious

DIZZY RAMBUNCTIOUS is back with a Throwback, guaranteed to start your weekend early.

So if you’re up for it, hit play on his latest EDM banger below:

Song of the Day: Dawn – Mackenta

MACKENTA‘s latest single, ‘Dawn’ chronicles when you fall head over heels for someone HARD, knowing that the person isn’t in it for the long haul. Despite seeing the warning signs, you let the relationship go on. Come on, hands up, we’ve all been in that messy situation!

Speaking of the R&B/pop number, the Toronto singer/songwriter said: “I felt a lot of mixed emotions while writing “Dawn.” Nostalgia over the good memories and potential, resentment about not being something more, shame over allowing the situation to escalate so far. I’m telling it from my point of view, so there’s a sense of blame towards this person who is not mature enough to take things seriously; but also realizing that I’m equally to blame for not drawing the line or understanding my own intentions. Ultimately, it’s about two people who both need to heal before they could ever be together.”

Look out for MACKENTA‘s EP dropping later this year. For now, check out the video for the melodic ‘Dawn’ below:

Song of the Day: How I Stay – SS

One of the most ambitious and active music makers of the UK scene, SwanSounds aka SS is the next star you need to know about and the release of his single ‘How I Stay’ indicates why he is set for very big things.

Perhaps most widely known for working with artists such as Burna Boy, Samini and producing and co writing Dappy’s hit ‘All We Know’, as well as starring in the video too, it’s clear to recognize that SS is not only brimming with talent but sauce too. The young music boss captures everything about what it is right now to stand out and does it with defined clarity and confidence.

With an impressive slew of his own music discoverable online, including ‘03.07.17’, ‘Gasolina’ and ‘Yeah Yeah’ he has been championed by platforms such as HotNewHipHop for his international appeal, while he’s filtered his music through more American sounds, his UK roots are clear from the second he steps on the track, making for an interesting but very fluid fusion of sounds, indicating a cross-Atlantic appeal.

A master of the studio and song writing, ‘How I Stay’ defines Swan’s sound as classy simplistic piano based beats are cut and twisted around a melodic vocal delivery. Intimate moments and feelings occupy the melodic and lilting drum patterns of the record as emotion and truth are audible in the delivery.

‘How I Stay’ is the first record from collaborative mixtape set for release alongside Honey6. The music is deeply rooted in artistry and musicality from the past whilst his music covers the emotions of a young man finding his place in this ever-changing world.
