Song of the Day: Bit By Bit – Jareth

London-based JARETH has unveiled the next cut to be lifted from her debut solo EP, her new single ‘Bit By Bit’ premiered online via COMPLEX and on-air with DJ Ace at 1Xtra.

Having previously lent her commanding vocals to collaborations with Rene LaVice, Bashy, Lioness and Ghetts, this year’s release of ‘Kaleidoscope’ and it’s Hybrid Minds remix picked up strong support from the likes of CLASH, Trench Magazine and UKF, alongside multiple spins on Twin B’s BBC 1Xtra show and a playlist addition from Spotify Denmark. ‘Bit By Bit’ continues to showcase JARETH as a master of her craft, as her voice glides effortlessly above lusciously orchestrated strings. Championed by will.i.am and having penned tracks for Cheryl and Chris Lake, the singer-songwriter is due to release her EP, ‘Moonchild’, later this year through new label Moonshot Music.

The new single sees JARETH working with producer Charlie J Perry (Jorja Smith, Maverick Sabre, Samm Henshaw) again and building on the blissfully soulful soundscape that made ‘Kaleidoscope’ so intoxicating. Telling a personal story of having to put ‘yourself back together again in the dark after being broken in the light’, JARETH has found strength in her vulnerability and only truly began to understand herself when she was at her weakest.

With JARETH’s expressive vocal at the core of the track, mirrored by delicate piano and washes of cinematic strings, ‘Bit By Bit’ is undoubtedly a standout from the forthcoming EP and really celebrates her unique talent…so start your Monday right and listen to ‘Bit By Bit.’

Song of the Day: High Tide – Caz Aglets

This week, there’s a load of promising upcomers filling up the Song of the Day hotspot and it’s CAZ AGLETS‘ turn to take the limelight with track ‘High Tide’, taking from his album ‘Void’ released in November.

What’s so remarkable is that this guy has written and produced the album before his 18th birthday. When you do have a spare moment, please do check out ‘Void’ and you’d think it was created by someone way beyond his years. ‘High Tide’ is a prime example of the intricate and complex arrangements that’s presented in the album: featuring a tampered downtempo bass, the single is topped off by a vibrant female vocal, giving the production that edgy sensation. ‘High Tide’ is an acquired taste, but it deserves nothing less than pure admiration for the hard work.

There’s more material on the way from this boundary pusher, so stay tuned…for now, have a go at ‘High Tide’.
