New Track: Swimming – Cherri V (ft. Roxxxan)

After closing out last year with two stellar stripped live visuals of her 2017 singles ‘Without You’ and ‘Leave Me Be’, an acclaimed performance at the pre-MOBO Award Show, and strong support from BBC 1Xtra, Capital Xtra, The Beat London, The 405, Clash Music and Earmilk, among others,  CHERRI V begins the new year with her brand new single ‘Swimming’, featuring Birmingham rapper RoxXxan, premiered exclusively by DJ Target on BBC 1Xtra.

With the release of ‘Swimming’, the British Soul songstress is drawing even closer to the release of her highly anticipated Brown Eyed Soul project. Alongside previously released collaborations with Harmony Samuel (Ariane Grande, Chris Brown, Fifth Harmony), and Hypertone (Snakehips, Jessie J, Alesha Dixon), fans and critics can expect new music with the likes of Da Beatfreakz (Chris Brown, Nadia Rose, Sean Paul), and Fanatix (Giggs, Chip, Fekky, Stefflon Don), among others.

Produced by XVR BLCK, who has previously worked with SNE, Bobii Lewis, Basheba, Lylo Gold and Kojey Radical, to mention a few, ‘Swimming’ sees CHERRI V pushing the envelope musically, as she adds something new to her repertoire, with this experimental R&B musical backdrop, backed by synth piano arrangements and underpinned by Cherri’s amazing vocal performance and delivery, with RoxXxan providing the perfect guest rap verse to complement the record.

Speaking about the inspiration for ‘Swimming’, CHERRI V says, “It’s about attraction, it’s about those daydreams you have about that special person. It’s about them persistently roaming around in your thoughts… way beyond your control… slightly obsessive lol. It’s about wanting to be alone, away from the noise, prying eyes and social media – just two people getting lost in each other’s company”.

Song of the Day: Touched – Ashley David (ft. Alicai Harley)

ASHLEY DAVID has a smooth, sensuous and addictive voice and for his debut release ‘Touched’, featuring Alicai Harley, his attributes melt into a cascade of melodies for a refreshing and genuine spin on R&B.

Taking in his worldly inspirations, the Londoner embellishes his work with glints of his Jamaican heritage as island music and soul vibes flirt playfully alongside contemporary R&B to make his self coined ‘Island Blues’. Featuring the delectable rap and singing talents of one of the UK’s most recently discovered stars Alicai Harley, ‘Touched’ is seductive and genuine, yet fierce.

There’s little doubt as to how ASHLEY DAVID is so well versed in music creation once you have scraped the surface to this intriguing musician, artist and video director. Born into a multi-talented family, ASHLEY DAVID has been musically cultivated by the strong influences of his uncles who were in an award-winning international gospel group and his older brother, a chart topping songwriter, Varren Wade (Wretch 32 ‘6 words’, Stormzy ‘Blinded by your Grace’).

The smooth operator began his career at an early age, seeing him take to the stage of West End Theatre before moving on to study animation and become a freelance creative director/ animator & graphic designer, providing visuals and collaborating with the likes of H Money, Wstrn, Fanatics, N3GUS, Rhyon , Joivan Wade and John Boyega. It is through his own journeys and those closest to him that he’s been able to nurture and hone his craft, being in complete control of all elements that he displays to the world and bringing him to the point he has reached today, a genuinely “360” artist.

Speaking of the release, which was premiered at radio by DJ Ace on BBC 1Xtra, Ashley said:  “I am extremely excited about ‘Touched’, as I have been working on my material over the last year and it seems like every skill I’ve learned & developed within the arts has now converged to this point where the world is now about to see all that I’ve been honing. Music, animation, visuals, the whole nine yards will be released and the excitement I am feeling is palpable, I want to take people on a journey into my very own genre which I call “Island blues”.

Start the journey and hit that play button on ‘Touched’.
