Song of the Day: Can’t Wait – #Pound

Made up of Smxk£, Darkboi and producer SupaWave, new East London group, #POUND revealed their debut single ‘I Can’t Wait’ last month and are already making waves. The video to the laid back summer joint has so far notched up over 16,000 views via GRM Daily.

The trio already have co-signs from Yxng Bane, Don-E and DJ Melody Kane who have been drawn to their soft, deep bass and laid back melodies lend from R&B and afrobeats.

Although the collective are making their debut together, Smxke, a talented vocalist/songwriter/producer, formerly known as ‘Smokeman’, started his musical journey at the tender of age 15 when he teamed up with grime legend ‘God’s Gift’. Darkboi also started out at an early age when he got recruited to join ‘Kidz In The Hood’ by one of the Grime scene’s most colourful characters ‘Crazy Titch’ and featured on underground hit ‘On Da Block’. Fast-forward to 2017 and with Supawave added to the mix; the super producer who is able to create any genre. .

With an ethos to their music, #POUND aim to portray positivity, good vibes and enlightening energy through their music. Their combination of exceptional and original content alongside a refreshing attitude makes this group an instant save for anyone looking to unearth new talent.

Here’s your chance to witness the climb..hit play on ‘Can’t Wait’.

Album Review: African Fabrics – Daniel Haaksman

African Fabrics Daniel Haaksman

Berlin-based DJ and producer DANIEL HAAKSMAN is, without question, the forerunner of  giving world music that punch of excitement and he certainly makes no exceptions in the latest album, African Fabrics.

The 11-track effort boasts the fiercest Afrobeats going with the equally fierce electronic drive –  a sweet yet explosive combination that never brings a dull moment.

It’s definitely a groundbreaker – experience (what I call) tropical house for yourself; hit that play button NOW!

So what to expect from this Bristol-based singer/songwriter? Well the title of the EP says it all really…super light, mellow, summertime melodies (with the hints of soul and afrobeats) which is topped off by Mitchell’s soothing and dreamy vocals. The 4-track production was released last month, perfect timing for those lazy summer days.
