EP Review: Watch The Ton3s – The Hamiltones

After appearing to be lying dormant for a few years, the recent explosion of that good old R&B, as we know it, has got REAL…and I mean SERIOUSLY real, with laid-back soulful summer vibes popping up from all directions.

Keeping that rich soulful R&B alive, are three powerhouses from North Carolina: J. Vito, Tony Lelo, and 2E – otherwise known as THE HAMILTONES.

Containing six tracks, their latest EP, ‘Watch The Ton3s’ primarily features 90’s-esque semi-chilled vibes well suited for the summer, with backing vocal arrangements occasionally adding a gospel edge. The trio each take turns and robustly deliver their classically rich soulful vocals on each and every pieces, adding that extra spice.

Since these guys first appeared on NEW LEASE MUSIC with single, ‘Pieces’, I’ve been keeping a very close eye on their next move…and I have to say that this EP has more than satisfy my curiosity – and if you’re seriously into your R&B, do not pass up on these three ton3s.

Song of the Day: Real Escape (Disco Despair Remix) – Nicolaas

NICOLAAS’ single ‘Real Escape’ gets a refreshingly funky pop treatment by Electronic producer Disco Despair released via Haven Sounds.

The original song ‘Real Escape’ is seductively gritty/groovy, with a playful flair of the haute couture life. While Disco Despair’s rendition retains the masculinity of the original track, it has an added sensuality that almost feels like a dance between partners.

The single follows the release of his debut effort ‘No Stranger Thing’ with remixes by Louis La Roche and Pages with the later released via French music and fashion label Kitsuné. Under his new moniker NICOLAAS, Rob Bakker has already garnered support from Clash Magazine, Earmilk, Mr Revillz, New Retro Wave and Luigi Donatello.
