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.

KYLE LETTMAN unveiled a brand new STEAMY visual to another slamming R&B joint, Explode, set for release this month.

Directed by Chas Appeti, the video sees the UK singer and his love interest struggling to keep a part. The video perfectly captures the tempting, yet excruciating, experience of an illicit love affair expressed in the track.

Kyle –  who worked with the likes of Mary J Blige and Ne-Yo –  had a successful 2015, after dropping tracks including Moving Too Fast, which gained support across 1Xtra, Kiss, Capital Xtra and releasing his Under Construction EP. He ended the year by receiving major attention across social media, with his cover of Adele’s Hello, hitting over 2 million views on his Facebook page in a matter of weeks.

He is now back for 2016, with an EP dropping later this month – look out for that! But for now, watch the video to Explode.

New Release: Moving Too Fast – Kyle Lettman

Now this is too good to pass up…check out KYLE LETTMAN‘s take on ARTFUL DODGER classic, Moving Too Fast. The track the first release from his upcoming EP Under Construction.

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!

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.
