Song of the Day: Child Of The Stars – Alba

After making waves around the world with her single ‘Sister’, supported by BBC Radio London, ALBA presents ‘Child of the Stars’, a hypnotically organic track that tips its hat to her Spanish roots.

Written and produced by ALBA and mastered by John Webber (Nina Simone, David Bowie) at AIR Studios, ‘Child of the Stars’ is about a little girl who is starting to lose her faith in the world after seeing all the damage and hatred that humanity is capable of. The lyrics touch on climate change, war, and self-destructive nature, but it also touches on the ability to love, feel empathy and be a driver of positive change in the world.

A passionate environmental campaigner who uses music to make a difference and speak up about social and climate issues, ALBA’s previous releases has been aired on radios around the globe, and has received coverage from well-known publications, blogs and tastemakers such as Guitar magazine, BBC Radio London and Amazing Radio.

Devyn Moon Releases Genre Fluid single, ‘Fast As I Can’

Hailing from Texas, 23-year-old Neo-Soul Electronic singer-songwriter and producer DEVYN MOON brings on a heavenly blend of R&B, Electronic, and Bedroom-Pop in brand new single, ‘Fast As I Can’.

Speaking of the single, Devyn says: “The song is an overall message to convey the beauty of embracing those flaws that make us who we are. In going back to your roots you find your true self, find the people who accept you just as you are, and choose to love you despite it all – it brings you to a point in life where you’re finally able to breathe and be comfortable within your own skin.”

Album Review: Escape The Kingdom – J.Chambers

Manchester’s hip-hop/poet J CHAMBER‘s EP, ‘Escape The Kingdom’, covers topics of being a black and British in Great Britain today – the kind of hard-hitting topics that are often swept under the carpet.

Over predominantly reggae driven beats, J Chambers touches on slavery, the migration of Windrush generation to the UK and the harsh and unwelcomed treatment they’ve received by the British people (listen to ‘Freedom Ain’t Free.’)

Through his distinctively manc-catchy flow, J Chambers also discusses that the dependents of the Windrush generation also experience the same treatment and any contributions made by the black community are often overlooked by the British society.

‘Escape The Kingdom’ also has a theme of black liberation by offering strong encouragement of stamping out any prejudices and racism that comes to path. Speaking of the project, J Chambers says he wanted it to really “resonate with young children” .
