New Music Video: Lurks At Night – J Fresh (ft. Yus)

The latest record to drop from the well-received ‘Fruit Salad’ album, J FRESH calls in Yus for ‘Lurks At Night’.

With a sharp-looking visual, that dropped on JDZ Media, and a bassline heavy instrumental, Yus sends out a stream of rapid fire and reload bars. The J Fresh production is a shining example of his skills as he sparks off Dizzee’s ‘I Luv U’ mix with a quirky concoction of garage, bassline and a nod to Artful Dodger x Craig David classic, ‘Rewind’.

Making his producer debut in early 2017, J FRESH has shown commendable determination to solidify himself within the scene. The release of his two E.P’s and his album have proved for continuous growth and recognition, seeing his music premiered with the likes of DJ Target at BBC Radio 1Xtra, picked up for BBC Radio 1Xtra’s ‘Introducing’ list and heavily supported across Kiss FM and Capital Xtra.

His ‘Fruit Salad’ album features a host of collaborations and contributions from the likes of DJ Target, Charlie Sloth, DJ Olos, Godsgift, Monkstar, DJ Ironik, Lady Ice, Predz UK, ShaoDow and Serocee making it an action packed, 15 track combo of dynamic production skills and talent.

Mind Kyle Letterman and distant light

KYLE LETTMAN and production duo DISTANT LIGHT have teamed up for a Summer fuelled, Garage hit, Mind, released last week.

Earlier this year, KYLE LETTMAN released his remake of Garage classic, Moving Too Fast. Daring to medal with a classic track, the results were fruitful and singer/songwriter received an incredible response across Radio and Online platforms seeing the record being supported across the BBC, Kiss and Capital networks….and it doesn’t stop there. 2015 has been quite the year for Kyle as he also opened the show at Omarion’s UK headline gig at KOKO helped by some serious online support from Pixie Lott!

Kyle isn’t the only one to have made some serious noise of late as production duo DISTANT LIGHT hit the music landscape last year with their official remix of UK RnB singer Angel’s chart-topping track Wonderful. The garage number quickly got the stamp of approval from leading tastemakers DJ EZ from Kiss 100 and BBC 1Xtra’s DJ Cameo. DISTANT LIGHT have worked their production magic on Ellie Goulding’s Beating Heart, Misha B’s Home Run and top 10 single All Cried Out by Blonde. Their recent effort Raggamuffin, was named Song of the Week here on NEW LEASE MUSIC.

It seems this is going to be one solid collaboration; so don’t miss out, have a listen to Mind.

So far, 2015 has proven to be fruitful for the R&B singer. Last week, The Londoner opened for OMARION  at his final UK performance for Musicalize.  Lettman won the gig with support from his fans including No.1 hit-maker and songstress PIXIE LOTT.

Having made a heavy impact with last campaign One More Drink, which saw the track premiered by i.D Magazine and the video being premiered by Soul Culture, Kyle gained the backing of tastemakers DJ CAMEO on BBC Radio 1Xtra and Capital Xtra’s RAS KWAME  as well as MOBO’s Music Week and SBTV. With seriously infectious, bass-driven beats, no doubt he’ll be making waves with this new record.

So I ask you again, go and check Kyle’s version of Moving Too Fast…enjoy!

Star Song: Closure – Activist

Today’s song is from UK upcoming rapper ACTIVIST, who is part of a group called CMF & SWC (Cave Man Family & Slaves Without Chains). The Londoner has been rapping for eight years but didn’t take it seriously until after he was stabbed for the third time. Since then things are definitely looking up for ACTIVIST: he has been working with producer LZ on his current album, The Year of the Antagonist (watch this space for a review!) and he’s currently in talks with a reputable publishing company. To add to the success, his music has been played on numerous music channels including Daily Grime and Spiff TV. Best of all, famous musicians are talking  about his work!

His latest offerings, Closure is about an interracial relationship that goes wrong due to family intervention. Featuring Lifford, who sang on ARTFUL DODGER’s Please Don’t Turn Me On, Closure is a super smooth track that gets you hooked on first listening – so it’s not hard to see why reputable musicians are sitting up and taking notice of this hip-hop upriser! Go on, have a listen for yourself – and I guarantee you that it won’t be the last time you hear of this young rapper!
