Song of the Day: Gold Fir – Sirens

Following the runaway success of, ‘Night Walk’, GOLD FIR satisfies the demand for soulful sassy vibes with, ‘Sirens’, the follow-up single out via +1 Records.

The emerging London duo saw a huge response to their debut offering, which was accompanied by a vibrant 2D animated video produced by Rejjie Snow collaborator Jack Brown. With repeat plays across BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, 6 Music, Triple J and Beats 1, as well as support online from i-D, DIY, Hunger, London In Stereo and a run in the Hype Machine popular chart, Spotify, Apple Music, Vevo and Bandcamp also came out in support of ‘Night Walk’ with heavy playlisting and homepage features alike.

New track ‘Sirens’ demonstrates the duo’s fierce ingenuity. A track “about welcoming different aspects of yourself to the dance floor” – elements of pop and 80’s devil-may-care are all present, and delivered in a neat package.

Simply known as James and Mabel, the pair’s eccentric, soulful sound is inspired by their favorite places, friends and films. With plans for a debut EP early in 2018, the duo prove now more than ever that genre is meaningless, but the right music will always be full of soul…have a listen to ‘Sirens’.

New Track: I’ma Hssla – B. Eveready (ft. J.Charles & Mike Body )

Born and bred in Boston, charged up worldsmith B. EVEREADY enlisted fellow musicians, J. Charles and Mike Body for his brand new single, ‘Im’a Hssla’, out last week on Bandcamp.

Reminiscent of that smooth 90s hip-hop/R&B, this emcee unsurprisingly tells the tale that he’s more than ready to grab the spotlight.

Hailing from Nas To Marvin Gaye – and everything in between – as strong influences, his nostalgic trademark has earned him a string of performances with heavyweights, including The Last Poets, Skyzoo, Torae, Emilio Rojas, Talib Kweli and Jin The MC…so you’re dealing with something REAL here; check out ‘Im’a Hssla’.

EP Review: Snapchat – J.Kas

I gonna kick off the first review of the year with NEW LEASE MUSIC staple J.KAS‘ five-track EP ‘Snapchat’.

This hot property from Sheffield continues to dash A WHOLE HEAP of hot pepper sauce in the latest project, by adding his seamless flow to dangerously infectious dance bangers, uptempo and rhythmic after hours hip-hop/R&B.

This one is definitely a keeper; add to your collection for free via Bandcamp.

Must Listens: All Night (Sugah Sugah), Cold Love, Fxck With Me.

Adam Hachey, otherwise known as TUNNEL TRAFFIC, released his latest album, Absolute Dreams which heavily experiments with folk, pop and electronic music.

Hip-hop heads, I have another hot one for you! Check out today’s hot track, Back 2 U by New York-born emcee S.P.O.T. (Strategy, Produces, Overall, Thought). The single is from his latest mixtape, The Extended Player released in June.

Following the success from his previous albums (The Album Called A Mixtape and Duets) this upriser gained a strong fanbase and has been compared to hip-hop heavyweights Nas, Mos Def and Common by critics….I told you this guy’s a hot one; don’t pass up the opportunity and have a listen to Back 2 U.

Sounds good? Well, it’s worth trialling his album via Bandcamp or other major online music outlets
