Fresh on the rap game, New Jersey-born spitter/producer KURT ATLAS makes his entry on the blog and steals today’s hot spot with head-rolling banger ‘Loud and Clear’.
Although a freshman to the scene, this young upriser – now residing in Seattle – is steadily building a dope catalogue of his music, which has been clocking up streams/views across platforms, including SoundCloud, Bandcamp and YouTube.
Why not jump on the hype and hit the play button on ‘Loud and Clear’…and if you like what you hear, hit that like button…and look out for more of his tracks, coming from REAL soon…
Taken from his recently released and critically acclaimed sophomore album ‘Cosmic’, which was released in September last year to rave reviews, Teddy Riley protégé, former Blackstreet member, and New Jersey R&B singer/songwriter LENNY HAROLD is excited to kickstart 2019 with the release of his highly anticipated music video for fan-favourite Cosmic album track ‘More’.
Produced by three-time Grammy Award nominee Armando ‘Mandobeats’ Colon, who has previously worked with the likes of Shaggy, Busta Rhymes, Lil Kim, Cam’ron and Fat Joe, with live bass and guitar arrangements from Ralph B. Stacy (Luther Vandross, SWV, Dru Hill), ‘More’ stands out as a timeless R&B slow jam, which is held together by LENNY HAROLD’s striking tenor and smooth vibrato, and honest and relatable songwriting about wanting more for and from a love interest.
The accompanied visuals see the smooth crooner collaborating with fast-rising cinematographer and photographer Richard ‘Parlay’ Copier of OneiPhotography, to create a storytelling masterpiece, which not only brings the record, which is already hailed a timeless R&B offering all by itself, further to life, but tells its own story of a woman stuck between trying to leave a life of pain and abuse behind, and the fear of leaping into the unknown with someone new.
Counting the likes of Quincy Jones, Marsha Ambrosius and Jamie Fox as fans, and with three critically acclaimed R&B projects already under his belt, before he released last year’s well received ‘Cosmic’ album, LENNY HAROLD is coming into 2019 as one of the best pure R&B talents out of America today. The rest of the year will see the New Jersey native embark on a short run ‘Cosmic’ tour across the US, along with the release of more visuals from the album, starting with ‘Heat’ in February.

The project continues on the hypnotic tip, before venturing into the realms of hip-hop/boom bap in tracks ‘Change’ and ‘Boomerang’; the New Jersey producer enlisted some guest vocalists to add extra spice to the mentioned records. Further along the line, eleventh joint ‘Evolucionar’ breaks the hypnotic trance thanks to its playful and uplifting Latin flair.
