New Track: Better Things – Hudson East

Fresh off his first track of the year ‘Give Me Loving’, released back in March, HUDSON EAST wastes no time and dropped his offering, ‘Better Things’ last Friday.

Sporting sporadically wavy overtones, the smooth R&B number sees the North-West Londoner expressing his intentions of moving into a more positive space in life and finding love.

Before his recent releases, Hudson was featured on Nine’s ‘One Foot Out Album’ and Krept & Konan’s ‘7 nights’  mixtape (both top 10 albums).

So if you heard of this guy before, then you know what’s coming your way – if not, rest assured you’re in great company here. Check Hudson’s ‘Better Things’ below:

Song of the Day: Nappy – Silence Is The Noise

Jewell Bell – aka SILENCE IS THE NOISE – enters today’s hotspot with some food for thought with her single, ‘Nappy’.

The neo soul/R&B creation is considered to be a love song for black women. As a black woman herself, who is all too aware of the lack of positive representation and affirmation of their beauty, it was vital that she writes a song that could not only inspire but uplift not just black women in her life, but black women in general.

Often compared to the like of  Lianne La Havas, Corinne Bailey Rae, Yukimi from Little Dragons, and Nina Simone, the Detroit songbird is planning to release an EP in later this year.

Have a listen to ‘Nappy’…

Song of the Day: Alright – Ragers

RAGERS enters NEW LEASE MUSIC’s song of the day hotspot for the first time with single ‘ Alright’.

Capturing an uplifting combo of electronic-esque beats and hip-hop, the almost five-minute summer cruiser addresses that although losing a love interest can make you feel lost, things will work out ‘Alright’ in the end.

Since 2013 RAGERS have caught the attention from both hip hop and pop tastemakers and maintain their growing stardom ever since. The Montreal rap quartet are now getting geared up for the release of their album,  ‘Raw Footage’ in June.

Definitely a cracker…get your listening gear around ‘Alright’.

New Track: Black Crow – Louis Baker

LOUIS BAKER has been under the radar since the release of his single ‘Addict’ a year ago…however his the newest release ‘Black Crow’ makes up for his absence from the scene.

Written and produced in Sydney in just six hours, the soul-fuelled groover  sounds like alchemy freed from an artist’s DNA, rather than the chiseled result of time and toil. Produced by Grammy-nominated Steve Rusch (Solange, Miguel, Rhianna), the deeply organic production bears a strong message of exorcising those demons and leaving the past behind in order to gain wisdom through experience.

Prior to ‘Black Crow’, the New Zealand singer/songwriter has earned ten million Spotify plays worldwide for songs including ‘Rainbow’ (4.7 million) and ‘Addict’ (over 850,000). ‘Addict’ also reached number six on the Radioscope Alt Charts and was premiered on MTV.

LOUIS BAKER proves that good things comes in time…when you hit play on ‘Black Crow’, you’ll hear why…

Song of the Day: Role Models – Lady Sanity

Following her win at the recent GRM Daily Rated Awards, Birmingham MC LADY SANITY shares the lead track off her forthcoming EP ‘For Figures’. The track is unapologetically raw and is about “finding inspiration in the amazing people around you in your everyday life, opposed to this unrealistic, overpriced culture that’s thrown in our faces so often.”

She has already performed at Glastonbury Festival and is certainly one of the most exciting and passionate lyricists in the underground Birmingham hip hop scene at the moment.

Check out her work…have a listen to ‘Role Models.’
