New Track: Celebrate – K*ners (ft. Incredubwoy)

Championing a sound that captures the heart and soul of hip hop, Bristol native K*NERS released his conscious single ‘Celebrate’.

Activating a deep sense of nostalgia through looping samples and a crisp vinyl feel, K*NERS paints a myriad of pictures and thoughts via his sharp wordsmithery with a throwback delivery.

Building his foundation as a ragga MC on a sound system, K*NERS is the latest in a succession of musical innovators from Bristol treading a path beaten by Wild Bunch, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Roni Size and more recently, dubstep producer Joker. Connecting the dots between the worlds of Ragga and Hip Hop,K*NERS has a fine-tuned sound that lies across both spectrums of the genres.

Creating a catalogue of music spanning over the last decade including his debut album ‘K In Da Flesh’, as well as his recently released second album ‘Voice of the City’, K*NERS has built a strong following over the years. He has also performed along the likes of legends that include Sugar Hill Gang, Mos Def, GZA/Genius (Wu-Tang), Tinchy Stryder and Mark Ronson.

“Celebrate, is the song to celebrate the fact you can start off in the hoods, slums and ghettos in life but still come out and reach your goals and live your dreams.” – K*Ners

New Track: Like A Child – Sarah Téibo

Multi award-winning Gospel singer/songwriter SARAH TÉIBO‘s latest single ‘Like A Child’ encourages each and every one of us to fully embrace the inner child and leave your cares and woes to the big man above. ‘Like A Child’  is the lead single off her highly anticipated sophomore album ‘Keep Walking’ due for release this summer.

Sporting a real smooth urban R&B drive, ‘Like A Child’ was written by Sarah with producer Luke (GKID) Grant, who produced Britain’s Got Talent 2015 semi-finalist Sakyi Four’s R&B/Afrobeat offering, ‘Simmer Down’. The four-minute production features the spine-tingling harmonies from one of UK’s promising singers, Tehillah Daniel and The Voice UK’s 2018 current contestant Jason Nicholson-Porter.

Sarah grew up in Nigeria where she started singing in choirs from the age of ten, citing Soul and R&B legends including Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and Kim Burrell as major influences.

In recent years, the London-born songstress is rapidly becoming the most-sought after musician in the UK’s Gospel circuit, following the release of her debut album ‘Walk With Me’ in 2016. She was nominated Best Gospel Act by MOBO Awards in the same year and won best album for her debut album at Premier Gospel Awards in 2017.

’Like A Child’ is now available on all digital music platforms, including iTunesSpotify and Amazon. Check it out below – not to be missed!

Song of the Day: Lifetime – The Radar Post

Esben Svane – aka –THE RADAR POST – steals NEW LEASE MUSIC’s Song of the Day hotspot with second single, ‘Lifetime,’ coming from his upcoming album  ‘A Good Adjustment To Reality’, expected for release in February

Following the release of first single ‘Pilots’, ‘Lifeline’ continues the project’s digression from the debut LP’s self-conscious folk roots. Relying more on a melancholic, yet hopeful aura, fused with a jangly-indie vibe, this Danish rocker is certainly now more shoe-gazer than folk cowboy.

THE RADAR POST is a solo project formed by former-drummer of pop band A Friend in London. The multi-instrumentalist’s last record came out two years ago which was preceded by two other EPs simply released under a solo moniker. Citing Radiohead as major influence on the rejuvenated sound, Svane’s setting his sights high for artistic brilliance, with good cause to.

With his record penciled in for February and plans to head out on the road in March/April (touring Denmark and Germany, respectively), THE RADAR POST looks raring to go again, and if you know what’s good for you, you’ll keep your radar on watch….

This may be their best release of the year…what do you think? Here’s your chance to check it out and have your say below.
