New Track: Never Gon’ Lie – Kali Mac

Since his 2015 appearance with music video to track, ‘Thankful’, it seems KALI MAC faded into oblivion. In reality, the long Island contender has been working long and hard on a series of track, which was whittled down a 15 set mixtape, ‘Grown Ass Kid’, ready for release on 16th June.

The first installment from the mixtape comes in form of the smooth banger, ‘Never Gon Lie’, which talks of his unflappable bond of brotherhood – although the ending of the video suggest otherwise!

New Track: Hit The Ceiling – Lion Babe

New York-based duo LION BABE have unveiled their song, ‘Hit The Ceiling’. Produced by the band’s own Astro Raw – aka Lucas Goodman – the summer-ready track features a psychedelic (ish)  mix of funk, soul, electronics along with singer Jillian Hervey’s signature sultry vocals.  The latest single is taken from their forthcoming new project, which is set for release this summer.

Earlier this year, the band shared the first taste of the project via the funk jam ‘Rockets’ featuring Moe Moks, which received its first look on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 program. The forthcoming project will be the first studio release from LION BABE since their 2016 debut album, Begin. The album, which was released amid a wave of acclaim and attention, featured the career-defining singles ‘Jump Hi’ and ‘Treat Me Like Fire’ and found the duo collaborating with the likes of Pharrell Williams and Childish Gambino.

Last summer, the duo released the sun-kissed mixtape, ‘Sun Joint’, which coincided with their first headline US tour and a string of international festival performances, including Glastonbury, ESSENCE, Afropunk, Reading & Leeds and more.

Recently, LION BABE’s Astro Raw shared his debut mixtape project, ‘rawmix vol 1’. The 14-track project mixes Astro Raw’s stellar, one-of-a-kind production with his infectious, genre-defying sounds, seamlessly mixing R&B, hip-hop, soul, funk and dance…when you have the time, check it out.
