New Track: Nauseous – Nova Moura

Enigmatic artist NOVA MOURA kicks of the year with brand new single ‘Nauseous’, which continues to explore his emotions in love and love-loss.

Commenting on the new single, Nova explains: “I wrote and recorded this track after reaching a certain point in a relationship where I was mentally and emotionally drained. The song focuses on the failing connection between me and this person, but comes more from a place of indifference and disdain. It’s more a song about my excitement of being done with this person.” 

Produced by Canis Major and Fla. Mingo, ‘Nauseous’ is available on all major streaming/download sites from New Years Day. Check it out below:

Song of the Day: You Know – Amery

He made the crowds dance the entire summer but AMERY is now taking it slow with his latest single ‘You Know’.

Produced by James Lowland, the R&B track creates a warm and intimate atmosphere preparing the ground for the 22-year-old Belgian artist to fully express and embrace his vulnerability. AMERY evokes the vicious circle resulting from the fear of letting yourself be seen and be loved, with every rejection adding up to the emotional baggage for the next relationship.

AMERY first made waves in the music scene in 2017 with his debut single ‘So Good’ which now generated over 1.3 million streams. The singer/songwriter has been supported in the past by both national and international media with publications such as ELLE France, Buzzfeed, OkayAfrica or PopCrush, and even an early co-sign by Elton John.

This guy is not to be messed with…have a listen to ‘You Know’ below:

 

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

R&B Singer/Songwriter RĀI steals today’s hotspot with his smooth second single from his debut album ‘Love’s on the Way.’

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 .”

The A1 Vision-directed visual doesn’t so much reflect the lyrics but stays true to the song – something simple, classic and cool that made you instantly like the song.

This smooth powerhouse is hell-bent on bringing back REAL R&B…so for those who missed the genre, go ahead and check out ‘Love’s on the Way’…and if you’re digging his track, look out for his album, on pre-order on all digital outlets and will be released June 8th.

Album Review: Lightheaded II – Dizzy Rambunctious

For his latest project, DIZZY RAMBUNCTIOUS braves it out and goes on a turbulent journey of dealing with a heartache from a relationship.

Starting off with melancholic tones, reflecting the first stages of a break-up, ‘Lightheaded II’ offers glimmer of light with an upbeat offering through ‘Heartbreak’, possessing the raciness of guitar plucks with along the EDM-ish drive.

With the tempo tuned down a notch or two, the second half of the album is free of the moody presence of the dense bassline and makes way for those carefree moments which is conveyed through a chirpy, modern take of boombap and a rather flirtatious jazz/soul combo (we’re talking Al Jarreau style).

Through ‘Lightheaded II’, DIZZY RAMBUNCTIOUS shows no boundaries to his talents, taking on a Simply Red’s Classic ‘Holding Back The Years’, through track, ‘Holding On’. What I love about this album is that it tells a clear story with minimal words…check it out…

Song of the Day: Someone Like You – Marcello Spooks (ft. LOLÈ)

Only a few months after his last single ‘Replace U’, MARCELLO SPOOKS is back with more ear candy in the form of ‘Someone Like You’.

From the get-go, the smooth electric piano combined with lush vocals from LOLÈ immediately sets mood right before the 808’s drop and Marcello reflects on past midsummer nights with an old flame.

Earlier this year, the East London MC teamed up with producer Maschine Man Tim to deliver the EP ‘All Time High’, riding the wave of success created by his 2016 single ‘Boom’ which has racked up an impressive amount of views and enjoyed support from the likes of BBC 1xtra, Pyro Radio and Fubar Radio, UKHH and Blurred Culture.

The video, directed by Jay Sentrosi and Eric Myers, is a work of art in itself, and sees Marcello Spooks reminiscing by The Thames riverside, as he flips through the pages of his book of rhymes. These calming visuals are juxtaposed with a more sinister scene which references the poisoned apple from Snow White.

Well here’s your chance to watch the video for ‘Someone Like You.’
