Song of the Day: 25 Miles From Vegas – The Tribe Of Good

’25 Miles From Vegas’ is the latest single from Soul/Disco supergroup – THE TRIBE OF GOOD.

THE TRIBE OF GOOD are the secret weapons behind your favourite chart hits. Imagine a present-day version of LA’s Wrecking Crew, if they hung out in Ronnie Scott’s, performed live with Dizzee Rascal and knew their way around a synthesiser. These are the talented artists you’ve heard performing with, or on records by artists as diverse and influential as Stormzy, M.I.A., The xx, MNEK, and Kanye West.

A sprawling supergroup that combines vintage soul and disco with modern production techniques, THE TRIBE OF GOOD are steered by Grammy-nominated producer Hal Ritson (Chemical Brothers, Katy Perry, Duke Dumont, High Contrast). With producers Michele Balduzzi (Phonat – OWSLA), Rich ‘Fiasco’ Adlam (Nas, Cee Lo, Taylor Swift) and Thomas Gandey (Southern Fried, Suara) in tow—alongside a cast of musicians from Basement Jaxx singer Vula Malinga and Jamiroquai guitarist Rob Harris, to Ritson’s long-time drummer Alex Reeves—the group are creating retro-futurist fireworks to light up the pop horizon.

’25 Miles From Vegas’ features the vocals from Daniel Pearce, Elroy ‘Spoonface’ Powell, James Anderson & Vula Malinga (Basement Jaxx), having been produced by core members Rich ‘Fiasco’ Adlam & Hal Ritson. The single continues the groups efforts in the bid to lift listeners amidst times of political uncertainty, yet open their eyes to what is going on in the world.

’25 Miles From Vegas’ will appear on their forthcoming debut album which is due for release on Ultra Records later this year…check it out below…

Song of the Day: Grinder – Johnny

Making an impressive music debut, producer/rapper JOHNNY is emerging from the home of some of the biggest names in the UK scene including Dizzee Rascal, Lethal Bizzle, Wiley, Kano and Roll Deep – the epicentre of today’s black music explosion, BOW E3. With such a rich tapestry of influence, culture and inspiration plus such a high pedigree of neighbouring artists to contend with, JOHNNY has studied the blueprint of his peers enabling him to step straight into the mix with strength, confidence and skill as he drops his aptly titled single ‘Grinder’.

The East London rapper has already started turning heads on the underground. Delivering on both production and vocals, JOHNNY creates the perfect blend for ‘Grinder’ as the heartbeat of the record thumps with kick drums and sharp snapping sneer drums before mix with his luxurious, melodic rap/singing. He nails the ability to automatically make your head bop along to the riddim and winds it up to a belter of a sing-a-long hook.

Setting the bar even higher, JOHNNY teams up the audio with a well thought-out, one-take, vlog style visual on his stomping ground Roman Road, premiered on GRM Daily. Slick camera edits, angles and the vibrancy of colours, culture and the London skyline, package ‘Grinder’ into one of the most impressive, refined and cultured debuts of recent times.

Song of the Day: Ting Dun – Ocean Wisdom (ft. Method Man)

After jumping in to the epicentre of the UK rap scene with the release of his independent Top 40 album ‘Wizville’ and the huge lead single ‘Revvin’ featuring Dizzee Rascal, OCEAN WISDOM is back with the visuals for another huge album joint ‘Ting Dun’ featuring Wu-Tang Clan’s Method Man.

Sewn into very fabric of Ocean’s music output, from the tracks themselves to everything aesthetic, is pure, unadulterated hip-hop. Whilst he already boasted an impressive online following and had gained millions of views on his videos, ‘Wizville’ has been the driving force behind his recent surge in awareness and popularity. His incredible delivery and lyrical ability, teamed with first class productions and visuals fast-tracked OCEAN WISDOM to the forefront of our minds and playlists, and with the release of ‘Ting Dun’ he looks to set to remain there too.

Coming through with extraordinary execution on a beat interconnected with layers of vocal and hip-hop gold, the two wordsmiths demonstrate their mastery and inimitable styles. OCEAN WISDOM rallies into his double time flow during the course of the track whilst Meth’s mellow tone and wit is delivered with nostalgic precision.
