Song of the Day: Times Like These – Liam Duncan

Singer/songwriter and mix/audio engineer, LIAM DUNCAN presents something really special that’s so relatable through single, ‘Times Like These’.

With the acoustic setting leading up to an explosion of ecstatic guitar riffs, the song well-documents the lowest and most vulnerable point in anyone’s life and strongly encourages to embrace that feeling in order to grow into emotionally richer beings.  .

This guy had a really rough year and at the age of 22, he managed to turn his negatives into positives. If he can do it at such a tender age, you can do it too.

Song of the Day: Section 8 – Jackie Spade (ft. Lute)

With his long-awaited debut album, ‘Aurafication’ JACKIE SPADE taps Dreamville’s Lute for track Section 8′, available now on all streaming platforms.

Speaking of the single, the North Carolina emcee said: ” ‘Section 8’ brings light to the dark environment I was raised in. The uplifting hook and glorifying message makes this song a hymn to be sung across the ghettos of the world.”

‘Section 8’ serves as the second official single from Jackie’s brand new debut album ‘Aurafication’, released last Friday via Champion Sound Recordings and Rapper Big Pooh’s Common Cents Media Group. The album will serve as the full length follow-up to Jackie’s Eclectic EP.

New Track: Stories – Dear Pressure

Made on separate computers and in separate dorm rooms over the course of a year, Matt Kahane and Quin Kiu – aka DEAR PRESSURE–  have completed a piece on the other side of finishing college.

That piece comes in the shape of ‘Stories’ which boasts melodically sweet overtones, accompanied by a soulful (Tom Misch style) b-line. The three-minute smoothie represents the next big chapter in the Toronto duo’s life as they leave college life behind, wondering what’s in store for the future.

Why not check out ‘Stories’ below…and if you like what you hear, be sure to look out for this pair as they plan to release their debut EP next year. The project will follow the same theme as the current offering…only a little darker and more cynical…

Song of the Day: Love’s On The Way – RĀI

When asked about the Tone Jonez – produced offering, the Harlem NYC resident/South Carolina native said: “That song is just a really good feel good record with a positive message. It’s a song that take elements from different times during the evolution of R&B music and produces what I hope is a timeless, uplifting R&B song. That was my goal with recording this song and the album altogether .”

Upcoming pop singer-songwriter ARIA makes a return with single ‘Call Me’. Laced with the atmospheric blend of synths and guitar, the Londoner’s latest offering expresses the letting-go of fear for the sake of love.
