The melodic, Spax-produced track ‘Away’ sees Oxlade building on the major buzz he has been causing since the release of his first single ‘Shugar’ in 2018 – and a slew of top notch solo tracks and collaborations – and gives fans a taster of the upcoming project which will offer a formal introduction to the talents of the exciting Lagos-based musician. With a mix of Afrobeat, Hip-Hop, R&B and Country influences, Oxlade’s distinctive, soulful vocals and mesmerising songwriting and storytelling, is backed-up with production from some of Nigeria’s top class producers, ‘Oxygene’ is set to be a must-listen EP.

Speaking on the forthcoming ‘Oxygene’ EP, Oxlade said: “Music is the air that I breathe, which is why I’ve named the EP ‘Oxygene’. With the play on words with Oxy’ being my nickname and the biological ‘gene’, I’m letting out a part of myself to the world which contains love, consciousness and pain.”

Sylo Shares New R&B Driven Piece, ‘Ginny’

Formerly as known as Sylo Nozra, SYLO‘s brand new single, ‘Ginny’ tackles the issue of being in a cycle of addiction, presented over a smooth, groove-driven R&B arrangements.

Born into a Korean family with religious roots, Sylo sang in church services as a child, leading him to learn several instruments at once. Sylo’s musical talents were further enhanced by his older sister who played 90s R&B and hip-hop.

His work has received global recognition, charting virally on both Spotify and Apple, amassing well over ten million plays. Additionally, Sylo’s songwriting skills have placed him in studios amongst Grammy-winning/nominated songwriters in Los Angeles, London and Toronto.

‘Ginny’ is taken from Sylo’s debut album, set for release in August.

Track Premiere: Only – Dorian Thorson

NEW LEASE MUSIC is EXTREMELY pleased to be the first to present DORIAN THORSON‘s brand new single titled ‘Only’.

Boasting a laid-back, trap/afterhours vibe, ‘Only’ is about experiencing that first love and how it can fade away without having any real closure.

Speaking of his new release, Dorian says: “I wrote this song as a goodbye to mine as I’m pretty sure I’ll never see them again. I didn’t really get the closure I would have liked so ‘Only’ is my closure. Don’t get it twisted, I’ve moved on years ago but this song tells a key part of my life story and needed to be released to the world. That’s just how i want all my proceeding work to be –  Journalistic, personal yet relatable material.”

‘Only’ was supposed to be included in his debut album ‘The Come Up’ (check out the album and review here.) Dorian explains: “I felt like ‘Only’ didn’t fit among the others as it has a whole different instrumental for it.”

Out today on all major download and streaming sites, ‘Only’ marks the beginning of Dorison’s shift from his ‘hip-hop/Rnb’ combo to something more sensual and soulful. So keep your eye on this serious contender as he releases more material throughout the year.

Why not start with ‘Only’ below…and remember, you heard it first on NEW LEASE MUSIC!
