New R&B Sensation Emiko Releases Brand New Single, ‘CareFree’

R&B newcomer EMIKO kicks off the new year on a irresistibly smooth note with new single ‘Carefree’. Sporting a laid-back neo soul vibe, the Daniel Sappore-produced track displays the young crooner’s undisputed ability to woo the listeners (especially the ladies) with alluring lyrics, delivered in his impeccable velvety vocals.

The West London soul singer has had an enormously successful 2018 in which he has been thoroughly working on building up a solid fanbase by performing at renowned venues such as Notting Hill ArtsClub, and getting his artistry to a next level by spending endless hours time in the studio. Already his previous single ´R U DOWN‘ has garnered huge support from the likes of BBC 1xtra’s DJ Ace, Reprezent FM and LDNRBS and was chosen by former Westside FM’s host Rebecca Judd’s ‘Westside track of the week’ after its release.

‘Carefree’ is taken from his upcoming, highly anticipating debut EP which will be released in the near future.

Song of the Day: Bit By Bit – Jareth

London-based JARETH has unveiled the next cut to be lifted from her debut solo EP, her new single ‘Bit By Bit’ premiered online via COMPLEX and on-air with DJ Ace at 1Xtra.

Having previously lent her commanding vocals to collaborations with Rene LaVice, Bashy, Lioness and Ghetts, this year’s release of ‘Kaleidoscope’ and it’s Hybrid Minds remix picked up strong support from the likes of CLASH, Trench Magazine and UKF, alongside multiple spins on Twin B’s BBC 1Xtra show and a playlist addition from Spotify Denmark. ‘Bit By Bit’ continues to showcase JARETH as a master of her craft, as her voice glides effortlessly above lusciously orchestrated strings. Championed by will.i.am and having penned tracks for Cheryl and Chris Lake, the singer-songwriter is due to release her EP, ‘Moonchild’, later this year through new label Moonshot Music.

The new single sees JARETH working with producer Charlie J Perry (Jorja Smith, Maverick Sabre, Samm Henshaw) again and building on the blissfully soulful soundscape that made ‘Kaleidoscope’ so intoxicating. Telling a personal story of having to put ‘yourself back together again in the dark after being broken in the light’, JARETH has found strength in her vulnerability and only truly began to understand herself when she was at her weakest.

With JARETH’s expressive vocal at the core of the track, mirrored by delicate piano and washes of cinematic strings, ‘Bit By Bit’ is undoubtedly a standout from the forthcoming EP and really celebrates her unique talent…so start your Monday right and listen to ‘Bit By Bit.’
