Song of the Day: Khao San Road – Liam Phelan

LIAM PHELAN steals today’s hotspot with latest single, ‘Khao San Road’, possessing a similar chilled out urban vibe from the likes of Tom Misch.

The Londoner first came on the scene with EP ‘The Relate’ in late 2017 which, to date, generated over 200,000 streams/plays across major platforms.

New Music Video: Deja Vu – Brit Daniels

Promising Nashville pop songstress BRIT DANIELS is back with the official music video for her latest hypnotic pop single, ‘Deja Vu.’ The single, which was released in late March, is brought to life in the somber new visual directed by Matteo Guastamacchio and starring Daniels herself.

‘Deja vu’ is defined as the feeling of having already experienced the present situation and in Daniels’ ‘Deja Vu’ music video that tedious familiarity is brought to life through reversing and repeating shots of the same things happening over and over again. It’s minimalistic yet powerful, bringing the mesmeric pop song to life.

Album Review: 2 Menace Drinking Juice Rolling Dice in Flatbush – Dice Cannon

So glad to see DICE CANNON (pictured right on the album’s cover art) bounce right back into the game after (what seems) years of lying low.

His comeback comes in the form of a 12-track set, ‘2 Menace Drinking Juice and Rolling Dice in Flatbush’, enlisting fellow spitters including Juice Cannon and Natty Boi Zoe, whose spoken word collection, ‘My Body, My Soul Vol.1’, was featured on the blog back in April and stole the blog’s Album of the Month title last month.

Taking us back to the golden hip-hop era (similar to KRS-One and Public Enemy No.1) through introductory track ‘Drinking Juice Rolling Dice’, the album goes on a journey of different variations of the genre, incorporating a real nice lick of old school R&B/soul, a modern spin on 70s soul/funk and a rather emotive piano-led/boom bap piece (through Bishop Vs Raheem).

When a rapper like DICE CANNON disappears from the scene for a while and returns with a confident swagger, well you know that he cooked up something beyond good.

Hailed as one of UK’s next R&B break-out star, MATT BLVCK ends the week on a smooth note with his afterhours single, ‘Dangerous’, the second hot R&B joint to appear on the blog this week.

The South Londoner’s latest effort follow his project, ‘After Party’ which has reached over 2.5 million streams, with the single off the project ‘Nia’ reaching the Viral 50 Spotify chart.

New Track: Hypocritical – NOA

NOA‘s ‘Hypocritical’ reflects on the aftermath of her own break-up, admitting there were times she wanted her ex back one minute – and then detesting him the next.

Through the playful electrifying pop vibes, the Toronto singer/songwriter has come to terms that it’s perfectly normal to have those roller coaster emotions after coming out a messy situation. After all, we’re only human!
