EP Review: The Blu Tape 4 – Dizzy Rambunctious

In the past, DIZZY RAMBUNCTIOUS has dropped a series of bluesy projects – and I have to say his latest EP, ‘The Blu Tape 4’ is the most diverse body of work that he has dished out.

A laid-back, Massive Attack -esque number along with an equally laid-back boombap-ish killer (featured in ‘No Interludes’) and an upbeat and idyllic EDM delight were added the urbanised soulful jazzy vibe, featured in the previous blue tape collections.

If you know of this New Jersey-based beatmaker, then you know he’s on a serious mission take a bluesy soulful combo to new heights…and if this is your first introduction of DIZZY RAMBUNCTIOUS, well this is the perfect opportunity to hop on the ride and sample his almost instrumental pieces below.

New Track: Sober – Marcel

Known as a ‘national treasure’ by the press, singer-songwriter, producer and DJ MARCEL
rose to fame with Blazin Squad in 2002 after they released a cover of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony track, ‘Crossroads’ which reached number one in the UK Singles Chart. MARCEL went on to secure seven top ten hits, including ‘Flip Reverse’ and ‘Love on the Line’, before securing himself as a finalist on the 2017 hit reality TV show Love Island.

Now, in between TV fame and media commitments, MARCEL is cementing himself as an innovative artist and recently released the afro-swing hit ‘They Wanna Know’, a well-received foray into his forthcoming EP ‘Circles’ due for release later this year.

Not afraid of incorporating his most personal experiences in his songwriting, his latest offering ‘Sober’ addresses the price of fame, highlighting the side to it that people don’t see; the lows, the pressure of the media and the unwanted attention.

Check out MARCEL‘s white and black video for this banging yet heart-tugging track below:

Song of the Day: No Stress – Marc Jones

Already picking up amazing support from the likes of Tom Robinson at BBC 6 Music, Kan D Man and Limelight at BBC Asian Network, Foundation FM, Reprezent Radio, UK Undiscovered, Premier Gospel (London), Amazing Radio, The Beat London 103.6 FM, BBC 1Xtra, Insanity Radio, NE1fm, Pulse88, Reprezent, Earmilk and Spotify making him the cover of their ‘Blessings’ playlist, MARC JONES dropped latest single ‘No Stress’.

The Croydon native has released four singles to date, racking up over 300k streams without any major push and is set to release his debut EP this Spring, entitled ‘Progress’. The six track project will feature varying moods and topics – sharing a plethora of his own truths and experiences. All the records allude to a disinterest with life’s peripheral perks, and instead focus on uplifting urban culture through music.

Hailing from a part of the world that’s synonymous with gangs and violence, Marc’s aim is to expose people to something different through his music, that others might find inspiration in his lyrics and his authentic story of normality – yet stability. There’s no rags to riches story here which makes the artistry even more impressive. If we’re honest, our sole wish is to be content with our lives and live comfortably – making Marc’s ability to make everyday topics relatable, resonate all the more.
