New Track: Golden Hell – Ruben Young

RUBEN YOUNG wrote his recently released single, ‘Golden Hell’ last summer at the time when the Canadian singer felt he was losing the perspective on his career and life. Although it displays moments of tension, uncertainty and chaos, ‘Golden Hell’ is accompanied with a contrastingly smooth R&B/Soul-esque tone, further sweeten with speckles of angelic overtones, contributed by producers, The Lost Boys.

The indie soulful songster experienced his taste of recognition back in 2017, after releasing his first three singles which amassed over two million streams and earned opening slots for artists like The Chainsmokers, Akon, and Classified. To date, Ruben’s music charted across platforms in multiple genres including Spotify Viral Canada (#13), Hype Machine Global (#8), and iTunes’ Electronic (#4), R&B (#8) and Pop (#28) categories.

Song of the Day: Blinding – J Appiah (ft. Ruby Wood)

East London singer/songwriter J APPIAH, drops his latest single, ‘Blinding’ which gives is a frank examination of the musician’s interior anxieties with his developing career.

The record also acts as a cautionary tale and a creative expression of the mental labyrinths an artist passes through just trying to stay human in an industry that peddles idols and products. Reflecting his apprehension, ‘Blinding’ fuses a trace of Hip-Hop, shades of blues and gospel emanating from his soulful vocal delivery, beautifully assisted by Submotion Orchestra’s Ruby Wood.

Further explaining his inspiration behind his latest offering’, J APPIAH says, “‘Blinding’ is about my desire to be well-known as an artist but also my apprehension with regards to the pitfalls of it. It’s about people judging you for who they think you are before they’ve even met you. It’s also about being seduced by the idea of popularity. I think today there are many ways you can become well-known, everyone seems to want their 15 minutes of fame”.

The Hackney native has received strong support from the likes of BBC 1Xtra, 4 Music, Complex, BBC 6 Music, Clash Magazine, MTV Base, Dummy Magazine and The Line of Best Fit recently, while his last project ‘Travelight’ garnered rave reviews and strong acclaim from fans and the industry alike, and it’s anyone’s guess where this inimitable new artist will go next.

‘Surgery’ – an anthem for self-love and acceptance – is the first single from her three side visual album called ‘EVOCAPOP’. The latest offering is the third single on side A

Speaking of her latest project, REL said: “I’ve chosen to make a 3-side album to address each phase of healing as its own story and as part of a bigger story. I developed anorexia at a very young age (7) and struggled with it for many years. Side A tells the story of a first stage of healing – facing the problem, realizing you’ve been hurting yourself. Self compassion is the first step towards peace.”
