New Track: 100 (Remix) – Ricardo Williams (ft. ShezAr)


After an amazing year with his last R&B smash hit ‘Deeper’ – which was track of the week on BBC’s 1Xtra and also hailed, ‘A soulful R&B banger’ by EarMilk – Birmingham’s powerhouse, RICARDO WILLIAMS has teamed up with fellow powerhouse ShezAr (sister of Singer/producer Labrinth) to deliver a truly sultry R&B classic.

The pair play out these age-old conversations and scenarios on the three-and-a-half-minute smoothie, weaved in with luscious harmonies, sultry vocals and passion.

If you miss that old-style R&B, you better check this one out!

New Track! Until The Day – The Bakery Boys (ft. The Thirst)

The latter part of 2015 has been kind to brothers Shack and Ace Boogie and long-term friend Dirty Dre – aka – THE BAKERY BOYS. The previous single Get Away, was named 1Xtra’s Track of the Week. Not becoming too complacent of their recent triumph, the boys dropped another track, Until The Day.

Their latest effort offers words of inspiration, urging youngsters to reach their goals. The four-minute slick banger features indie  band The Thirst’s Mensa Hart and Lock Laser who is the brother Shack and Ace. It comes to no surprise that the brothers formed a strong bond for music as their father was in the 90s cult group, Soul II Soul.

Apart from making waves on the music scene, supporting the likes of Big Sean and Labrinth and performing  twice at the Wireless Festival, these guys have their fingers in more than one business pie. Their fashion label,  Justin Hustlin, was the fast selling streetwear on ASOS and their social organisation Justinspire, sees them mentoring and volunteering in their local community – breaking down misconceptions that rappers are all about the money and honies!

Until The Day will be released from tomorrow…but for now, watch the video and soap up some words of wisdom.


New Release: What I Know Now – Mark Asari

Still enthralled by the success of his debut solo song Up and Away, MARK ASARI is back with his new track What I Know Now from his upcoming EP. The inspirational effort gives an insight into the R&B singer’s hard knocks in life prior to his success.
Being in the music industry since a very young age and collaborating successfully with artists such as Tinie Tempah, Chipmunk, Labrinth and Wretch 32 has enabled Mark to make his mark on the UK music scene. With such smooth vocals which delivers a positive and upbeat message, this upriser is more than ready to be at the forefront of the revival UK R&B scene.
