New Music Video: Never Fold – LaBritney

VH1’s Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star LABRITNEY debuts the official music video for the title track from her latest track, ‘Never Fold’ via Billboard.

“I wanted to create a balance in the visual by showing a very feminine, sensual, yet raw performance,” the multi-hyphenate told Billboard of the Marty McFly-directed video, which was also choreographed by Mikey Peseante and celebrity choreographer Jose “Hollywood” Ramos. “Real hair, minimal makeup, simple style, raw emotions and dancing.”

EP Review: Nothing Is Forever – Shon Jay

SHON JAY is that guy who set the bar high – and I mean unobtainably high among his music contemporaries.

His latest EP, ‘Nothing Is Forever’ may be only eight – tracks long, but there’s an electric mix of genres – from funk, old school soul and even an expected appearance of a little country – all of which oozes undisputed class.

Among a crowded industry that’s filled with quick-fix hits that’s easily forgotten, SHON JAY‘s ‘Nothing Is Forever’ is a true testament that there’s still GOOD and MEANINGFUL MUSIC out there and it’s definitely a collection that can be enjoyed from five or even ten years from now – I guess some things last forever.

Check him out below – it’s like listening to soul idols Stevie Wonder, Al Jarreau and George Benson, all wrapped up in one.

Song of the Day: W&B – Nebr, The Tiger

Upcoming Detroit hip hop artist NEBR, THE TIGER rocks up into the limelight with latest track ‘w&b’. The left-field hip-hop banger that preaches an anthem to his lifestyle over a sub bass heavy beat with textured soundscapes produced by Newsensei. With the hype building around his upcoming album ‘Insight’ coming out in the late summer, there’s no telling on what he has in store for this year.

NEBR, THE TIGER’s music has been featured on Arson Capital Magazine, Daily Hip Hop Jamz and of course New Lease Music with previous upbeat number, ‘Bootleg’ – check it out sometime

For now, wrap your ears around ‘w&b’.

Song of the Day: Acceptance – Dr. Wolf

Since their inception in February, long-term friends/collaborators Henry Johns (guitar, drums, synth, vocals) and Nick Sapounas (synths, drums, vocals) – aka DR WOLF – are going all out to make a serious mark in the music circuit in their hometown Detroit with their debut singles ‘Came So Easy’ and ‘Acceptance’.

‘Acceptance’ has stolen today’s hotspot for its stunning lucid passage travelling throughout the almost six-minute composition. The interminable passage is smothered in ultraviolet synths that’s melodic and somehow very therapeutic.

Ahead of their debut releases, the duo became firm fixtures in the Detroit music circuit, performing at various venues as well as playing at the Hamtramck festival and Whateverfest. The guys are working on new material and are planning for release in the winter.

Press play on ‘Acceptance’ – and if this single has a calming effect on you, be sure to look out for their forthcoming projects.

Song of the Day: Honest – Silence Is The Noise

After claiming the Song of the Day hotspot with single ‘Nappy’, SILENCE IS THE NOISE returns to the limelight for the second time with brand new single entitled ‘Honest’.

The latest release touches on the romantic complexities and emotional ambiguity of unarticulated desire, as well as the difficulties in being vulnerable. It highlights the frustration one feels of wondering whether a person is into them or not by making it more complicated than it needs to be in not being honest.

The angelically sweet presence of the piano is immediately introduced in the three-and-a-half minute production which seamlessly leads into her smooth neo soul trademark. Silence’s vocals inject extra soul, delicately venting her thoughts of the issues mentioned.

This is a great follow-up that puts you in the mind of Corinne Bailey Rae and Erykah Badu…iron out your humpday and check it out…
