Song of the Day: Work Of Art – Iamu (ft. Rebecca James)

Production powerhouse IAMU offer up their new single ‘Work of Art’ featuring the vocals of Rebecca James – who’s currently on tour with music royalty, Janet Jackson.

The duo’s broad and in-depth understanding of music as an art form, and more notably as an emotion, plays a key role within their sound. IAMU’s music faces no border when it comes to genre, which is verified by their eclectic repertoire and the range of artists that they’ve previously worked with such as Wiley, Miss Dynamite, WSTRN and their recent infectious single with Bluey Robinson, ‘Falling Stars’.

Their ability to engage in territories that blend both spectrums of genre and philosophical concepts, in combination with their anonymous identities, has created a sense of mystery and intrigue into their musical moves. Whilst their next track may unpredictable, it is becoming apparent that IAMU consistently deliver an extension of their unique and versatile sound…this is too smooth to pass up…check out ‘Work of Art.’

Song of the Day: Aim – Adian Coker (ft. Bluey Robinson)

Adian Coker

ADIAN COKER takes Aim and shows what a true marksman he is on his brand new single taken from forthcoming E.P Connect.

A futuristic galaxy of electro synths orbit around an explosive drum beat making way for the entrance of a rock fuelled hook. The larger-than-life emcee takes a strong lyrical stance on the three-and-a-half banger, a quality that his fans will already be accustomed to – however there’s something notably different about this record. There’s a relaxed edge to the track, aided by the smooth R&B/soulful hook from Bluey Robinson, making it the perfect introduction to his EP.

In recent years, the South Londoner has earned an array of support from some of the most impressive music platforms. Each of them delve into his musical output giving the big thumps up to his ingenuity, depth and ambition yet there’s always been an air of mystery surrounding him and his music.

Connect is a very deliberate release, offering a side to ADIAN COKER that hasn’t been revealed before. The release gives an understanding and a much more upbeat and playful element to his music without any compromise on quality.

So here’s your chance to take aim to check out the single.

Today’s  song is Personal delivered by Bermudian born rapper/singer-songwriter and producer BENTO.BDA. The track is taken from his forthcoming debut EP The Deep which will be release later this year.

BENTO.BDA is an award-winning artist, winning song of the year at the UG awards, aged just 16 for Bermuda in 2005 and went on to support the likes of CHRIS BROWN, JOSS STONE and more recently THE GAME.

Now residing in London, BENTO.BDA has been writing, producing and featuring for a number of UK artists such as BLUEY ROBINSON and his track, Good Times, and most recently RAHEEM BAKARE, who debut single Portrait Of Love which Bento co-wrote, hit no 1 on MTV Base.

This lead to Bento’s debut radio release Slow Jam, also featuring BLUEY ROBINSON which reached no 18 in the Music Week urban chart, and resulting in being playlisted on numerous radio stations including Unity Radio and Kemet FM, as well as gaining the support of 1Xtra Target and Capital Xtra.

Bento’s father, a musician himself, encourage and exposed Bento to a wider variety of pop, rock and soul music, and this love of melody and classic music was ingrained but it was hip-hop and rap that give Bento the platform to express himself.

So take time out and have a listen to Personal.
