EP Review: Dreamlife – J Kas

The reason why I admire this guy so much – and is forever welcomed on this blog – because he’s fearless, always coming with something different every single time.

His previous projects ‘Snapchat’ and ‘One Six’ is a mix bag of electro dance with Latin flair, spiced up banishment and smooth after hours jams. On the other side of the spectrum, his recent collaboration with Cellar Door Moon Crow sees the Sheffield hip-hop contender step up to the plate and rip through the sporadic rock chords.

Now J.KAS turn his hands to something completely different with latest project, ‘Dreamlife’. Named after a London producer who produced some of his past materials – including ‘Cali Dreaming’ and ‘To The Top’ (from One Six EP) – the four-track set possess a strong of presence hazy golden hip-hop/boombap, where this BBC introducing artist’s smooth delivery rapidly slides through the bars of each track.

Never the one to sit back and relax, J.KAS took his latest set on tour – named after the EP- across Europe, visiting Belgium, Paris, Porto and Lisbon where he encouraged the locals of each city to get involved in the creative process of the music videos.

Here’s your chance to check out the visuals for first single from the EP ‘Overtime’ released today…and expect a whole load of visuals from this guy in the near future.

New Track: Oh Jane – Otis Mensah

Following the release of mellow/melancholic track, ‘Day Dream’ back in December, OTIS MENSAH delivers another moody yet toe-curling piece, taken in shape of ‘Oh Jane.’

His collaboration with Berlin-based producer, The Intern definitely paid off as the two-and-a-half minute release oozes a hazy experimentation hip-hop and Jazz. Produced by Grit Multimedia, Otis Mensah and Raluca de Soleil,  the accompanied visual sees the Sheffield wordsmith poetically vents on the issue of depression, isolation, materialisation and love loss.

This one’s too good to pass up! Check out the video to ‘Oh Jane
