EP Review: Intermission Vol.1 – Ricardo Williams

The build-up to the release of RICARDO WILLIAMS‘ EP, ‘Intermissions Vol.1′ has been PHENOMENAL, especially when it comes to the Come Over challenge – one of the singles from the collection – which offers different remixes of the original. More recently, R&B queen Teedra Moses graced her soothing vocals on the afterhours joint.

Now, finally, the big man of UK R&B has graced his presence with the eight track set, released via BBC 1Xtra DJ Ace’s label Recordbox late last month.

After the introduction, a very familiar mist of afterhours sets the tone with Williams’ powerful vocal instrumental effortlessly piercing through the bed of feathery soundscapes, starting with the original version of ‘Come Over’. That misty and airy tones continue on all the way through with tracks, ‘He Ain’t Me’ and ‘All I Need’.

In just a few years, It has been great to witness such a journey where a upcoming homegrown talent, who (in my opinion) exceeded his mission on pushing REAL R&B to the forefront, to flourished into one of the most promising R&B powerhouses to excite, not just his UK hometown, but across the globe.

There’s nothing else left to say, a part from go check-him-out below:

New Track: Switch Up – Marcelle Adrianna (ft. Monique Amarylis)

Vocal powerhouse and ever rising R&B talent MARCELLE ADRIANNA delivers her latest soulful single ‘Switch Up’ featuring Monique Amarylis.

‘Switch Up’ comes off the back of her spellbinding EP ‘THE PROLOGUE’ which unearthed a handful of tracks that grabbed the attention of global gatekeeper to R&B, DJ Ace, who supported Marcelle on his BBC Radio 1Xtra show. The EP also saw Pride Magazine highlight her as their ‘One to Watch’ whilst the likes of Neon Music stated that she “deserves to be heard by millions of people”. She has previously performed alongside the 1975 and collaborated with Melissa Steel, so it is safe to say she is ticking a lot of boxes.

Delving into feel-good, old-school R&B goodness MARCELLE ADRIANNA showcases her signature riffs and succulent harmonies as nostalgic and contemporary flavours twist into a genuine R&B sound. With a bouncy backdrop, Marcelle and Monique, who are good friends beyond the studio, showcase their chemistry and put their real life conversations to life, providing an honest insight into the dynamics of relationships.

Born and raised in Toronto, Monique is another star in the making. Last year marked the release of her debut offering ’Falling in Love Again’ and ‘Switch Up’ is the follow-up single, which sees the two talents vocals effortlessly entwining…check it out below…
