Song of the Day: Elizabeth – Jerhiame

JERHIAME‘s latest single ‘Elizabeth’ earned a well deserved place on today’s hotspot for its atmospheric fusion of electro and R&B with the young newcomer delivering a pretty woeful tale of ‘the one’ who broke his heart…and hoping that karma will catch up with her.

Coming from a musical inclined family, listening to the likes of B.B. King, Michael Jackson and Prince from a very young age, the singer/songwriter from Louisiana released his debut single, ‘Sad Song’ in 2016, which quickly cranked up his fanbase and thousands of streams on Spotify. Released back in February, ‘Elizabeth’ carries on the hype, receiving great reception from several college campuses and earning spots of Spotify playlists.

JERHIAME is currently working on his EP…be sure to look out for that…but for now, witness a star-on-a-rise and check out ‘Elizabeth’.

New Track: Sleep Walkers – Wolf Kash (ft. CHISARA)

Jordan and little brother Harry – aka alt-electronic music outfit – WOLF KASH released their brand new single ‘Sleep Walkers’, featuring the South London singer CHISARA.

The combination of a heavy bassline and uplifting chords creates a signature WOLF KASH single that can’t be pigeonholed to one genre, but that takes influence from electronic dance music and pop. The four-minute offering is complimented by a powerful and soulful vocal from CHISARA, having worked together previously on the single ‘Bleeding Time’.

Since releasing the pair debut EP and singles ‘Wasted Under Berlin Gate’ and BBC’s Huw Stephens championed track ‘Slow Burn’ in 2017, WOLF KASH have been making waves, taking part in the ‘48’ project with Foreign Beggars and Monster Florence. The collaborative LP was made from scratch in 48 hours, and in that time an album was made and live streamed via Facebook. In addition to the project, their occasionally join forces with middle brother Max to collaborate on various projects.

This one will definitely jumpstart your weekend…have a listen to ‘Sleep Walker’

 

EP Review: Je Ne Sais Quoi – Gemini Chris

Of all the years of reviewing albums and EPs on NEW LEASE MUSIC, I am quite ashamed to say that I’ve never covered a house music album or EP. Well GEMINI CHRIS has broken that void and slipped his new EP entitled ‘Je Ne Sais Quoi’ into the blog’s limelight.

The Jamaican DJ take us back, way back to the late eighties/early nineties where techno house was rife, with infectious thumps of electronic hooks, coupled with the underlying bass which somehow gives the arrangements that extra fire.

Although this London-residing beat maestro arguably takes heavy influences from notable electronic acts such as Derrick May (Strings of Life), 808 State and Shades and Rhythm, he adds his own magic to techno house of the aforementioned era, giving it that certain Je Ne Sais Quoi… check out his set below:

Well, this is guaranteed to shake up your Thursday…NEBR THE TIGER makes his grand entry on NEW LEASE MUSIC with the super heavy release ‘Bootleg’.

This out-of-sight banger has stolen today’s hotspot, so you know it’s gonna be good…go head and hit the play button on ‘Bootleg’. If you like what you hear, be sure to look out for his album ‘INSIGHT’, dropping this summer.
