New Track: Depend On Me – Cores (Ft. Maz)

Bringing smooth summer vibes and classic R&B flavours, CORES joins forces with Maz for latest joint ‘Depend On Me’.

Produced by Cores, ‘Depend On Me’ puts a 2018 spin on the Teedra Moses’ 2009 hit single ‘Be Your Girl’. Combining vibrant drum patterns with the mellow tones of Cores and Maz’ silky vocals on the hook, the lyrics detail the peaks and troughs of a relationship and wanting to ‘have your cake and eat it too’. This tongue-in-cheek track does have a deeper layer to it though, exploring the idea of fear in love and relationships.

Having spent the early 2000’s in the influential pirate radio crew ‘Haunted House Production’s’ the producer and emcee is verified in his authenticity. Flash back to Professor Green’s 2006 standout record ‘Upper Clapton Dance’, which featured the man himself, not only on production but laying down the final verse too. Although CORES honed in on his production craft, which awarded him with a string of ground-breaking records including Adamhood from the film Adulthood, Keep Moving by Paloma Faith, Bashy and Adam Deacon (from the 4, 3, 2, 1 movie soundtrack), and most notably as Executive Producer across all of Professor Green’s albums to date, his love and talent for emceeing has always remained burning bright.

After returning to the mic last year with two new tracks as an artist and showcasing his abilities across the board as rapper, producer and mixer, ‘Depend On Me’ showcases his maturity and talent alongside intricately woven beats, high-end sonics and sharp-tongued bars…check it out

Lately, NEW LEASE MUSIC have been featuring a steady stream of Canadian artists, dominating the Song of the Day limelight.

Featuring Brodi, whose baritone instrument adds extra meat to the titillating arrangements, ‘Foreward’ is about overcoming obstacles that once appear so mighty.

Song of the Day: Honest – Silence Is The Noise

After claiming the Song of the Day hotspot with single ‘Nappy’, SILENCE IS THE NOISE returns to the limelight for the second time with brand new single entitled ‘Honest’.

The latest release touches on the romantic complexities and emotional ambiguity of unarticulated desire, as well as the difficulties in being vulnerable. It highlights the frustration one feels of wondering whether a person is into them or not by making it more complicated than it needs to be in not being honest.

The angelically sweet presence of the piano is immediately introduced in the three-and-a-half minute production which seamlessly leads into her smooth neo soul trademark. Silence’s vocals inject extra soul, delicately venting her thoughts of the issues mentioned.

This is a great follow-up that puts you in the mind of Corinne Bailey Rae and Erykah Badu…iron out your humpday and check it out…
