New Track! Don’t Be Shy – Kane

Kane

As a preview to his debut album, KANE releases his silky smooth offering, Don’t Be Shy.

Oozing with soul and the makings of a sweet R&B slow jam, the British R&B singer showcases weak-at-the-knees vocal over a beat laden with classic guitar riffs and snares, with a more contemporary deep bass backline shining through that perfectly holds each aspect of the track together.

With an equally impressive video in the pipeline, KANE makes his mark with depth and quality to his work. The video, shot in his hometown of Tottenham in London, gives a sincere perspective of the singer and the song itself as the luscious, sweet vocal collides with the raw, inner-city visual surroundings. The result is that of authenticity and somehow gives a new edge to the record that you might have missed on listening.

He may only be in the early stages of his career but this upcomer already has quite a story that has propelled him to his current place in music. At the age of 17, he released his debut E.P Dreams, which resulted in him working with acclaimed songwriter Sam Hook (Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, Mary J Blige) and releasing Turn It Up featuring Sneakbo. He then went on to perform at DJ Cameo’s Summer Love festival in Cyprus alongside Tinie Tempah before returning to the UK and performing with the likes of J Spades and U.S songstress, Ashanti, at the IndigO2.

Set to have a big impact on the music scene over the coming years, this cute face lays down some strong foundations for what is to come –  have a listen to Don’t Be Shy.

If you’re a big fan of THE MUSICAL PAPA, the chances are that you know of his highly-anticipated mixtape TC-UNO. If you don’t know this rapper, expect 14 very different tracks from the mixtape.

TC-UNO starts off real smooth, with the light and angelic Love on the Corner, Clap and Wonderful Freestyle (sampled from JA RULE/R-KELLY/ASHANTI big hit Wonderful) The mixtape switches to a slightly dark tempo with Lit and That Work. MUSICAL PAPA’s ride-to-the-beats freestyling is most appreciated in the seriously head-rolling tracks Amazed, Ligghhh and Do You. The mixtape reaches the ultimate climax with the uber-cool/hour afters GIF.

Overall TC-UNO caters for ALL serious hiphop heads. If you’re not into the dark productions, you’ll sure love his super smooth tracks (just have a listen to GIF – wicked!). Check out TC-UNO right here.
