Song of the Day: Kisses – Chloe Cattell

CHLOE CATTELL makes her debut with the sweet and sassy ‘Kisses’.

Emerging with an old school 90’s R&B vibe, whilst also creating something relatable for today’s society, Chloe’s sound is distinctive yet original. That being said, along with her fierce nature and infectious personality, there really are no limitations as to where this can take her.

Produced by Pdub The Producer (Da Baby, Roddy Rich, Tink, Luh Kel) and engineered by 5Five2 (Yxng Bane, Kojo Funds, Stormzy), ‘Kisses’ was written as an empowering song for females as stereotypically women are often branded a certain type of way for having the same desires as a man. The main theme of the song is to pretty openly say ‘no, this is what I want right now while I’m working on myself, and I’m not afraid to make it known’ – Chloe Cattell.

With an arsenal of new music in the pipe line, this Sheffield born Singer/Songwriter is one to add your watch list this year…Check out ‘Kisses’ below…

Otis Mensah Drops Track ‘No Record Store Day’ + Video

Acclaimed Hip-Hop artist and poet OTIS MENSAH announces the release of his new single ‘No Record Store Day’, written at the beginning of the global pandemic. The song delves into a feeling of cabin fever, using the cancellation of Record Store Day as a metaphor to explore a deeper sense of social disquietude. Over moody psychedelic instrumentation produced by The Intern, Otis paints the journey with frantic poetry, wrestling over ego and self-worth; finding the political in the personal.

Hailing from Sheffield, Otis Mensah combines vivid storytelling with atmospheric and experimental Hip-Hop sounds. Titled Sheffield’s first poet laureate in 2018, Otis has worked and toured with heavyweights such as Benjamin Zephaniah, KOTA the Friend, Open Mike Eagle, Mahalia and Blu & Exile. Otis has also received support from The Guardian, Earmilk, I Am Hip Hop Magazine, BBC: Introducing; CALM; Worldwide FM and The Noise Gate.

‘No Record Store Day’ is the third episode of #OtisMensahExists, a series of new music and animation art released every three weeks.

J.Kas x Ruell Slams Down Summer-Ready track ‘BonBon’.

Rapper J.KAS calls upon long-time collaborator, upcoming R&B singer Ruell, to offer some much needed distraction away from the chaotic current events with latest single, ‘BonBon’.

Ruell takes the lead in the summer-charged joint, exchanging his smooth afterhours vocals for a melodic/rock steady-esque flow, which melts right into the vibrant fusion of tropical house and Dancehall. BBC Sheffield-approved J.Kas takes over and adds extra fire with his gutsy MC-delivery.

Previously featured on J. Kas’ soulful/R&B jams, ‘Snapchat (Ain’t No Killing My Vibe)’ and ‘Cali Dreaming’, Ruell has branched out and released his debut solo single, ‘Tiffany’, where J.Kas returns the favour and features on the R&B/trap production.

Besides being a seasoned wordsmith, who received firm support from BBC1’s Huw Stephens, BBC 1xtra’s Charlie Sloth and DJ Ace and BBC Sheffield’s Christian Carlisle, J.Kas is the founder of trendy streetwear, Tokyo Red, established in 2015.

Available now on SpotifyiTunesTidalDeezer and Google Play, ‘BonBon’ follow’s J.Kas’ Afrobeat/Dancehall number, ‘Amsterdam’.
