Song of the Day: Remember – LA Sabree (ft. Adonai)

‘Remember’ is LA SABREE’s attempt at a love song. Growing up, LA recalls most of his favorite hip-hop albums containing a romantic record or two specifically for female listeners to vibe to. During a listening session, his friend told him he was missing that exact type of song. Ever the perfectionist, Sabree vowed to make it happen.

Once he heard the beat by Producer GHXST, he sought out to bring the idea to fruition. However, he ended up creating something else entirely…

‘Remember’ is an anthem for men reminiscing about their old flames – and more importantly and specifically that woman it just didn’t work out with despite everything lining up like it would. In the record, LA SABREE recounts the vibes, moments and conversations he had with a girlfriend who professed her love for him. By the end all he has left are the pictures in his phone.

‘Remember’ is available on all major streaming platforms…check it out below..

Song of the Day: Summer’s Over – Samurai Champs

Hailing from two Canadian cities – Saskatoon and Regina – future-hip-hop/R&B duo rapper Jeah and singer Merv xx Gotti – aka SAMURAI CHAMPS, dropped their latest single, ‘Summer’s Over’ into today’s hot spot, drawing influence from their Southeast Asian heritage, while taking pride in their urban-Canadian identity.

Speaking of their smooth latest hip-hop/afterhours banger, they guys says: “For the track Summers Over, we really wanted to capture the idea that good things come to an end. That’s just the reality of it. Just like how the seasons come and go. Embrace change and learn from your experiences. That allows us to be human and as humans we can be hopeful. So if it’s for love, it’s always worth fighting for.”

SAMURAI CHAMPS first graced their presence on the blog with their album, ‘Cabernet Sauvignon‘, named Album of the Month by the blog in July (to view all top releases of the week and month, visit the Instagram account).

Song of the Day: Under The Influence – Mike Dignam

MIKE DIGNAM‘s latest single, ‘Under The Influence’, marks a soulful turn for the British songwriter, as well as his new role as producer. His soulful, gritty pop comes through the slick self-production, and further portrays the musician’s raw vulnerability and stellar vocal.

Speaking about the track, Mike says:

“Under The Influence” was entirely self-produced so I’m unbelievably proud of it. It’s the first record I’ve ever produced and I’ve since gone on to produce my entire album, which will be out early 2020.

Having been away for nearly 3 years now, it feels more important to me than anything I’ve put out so far, and definitely my best works to date. The song is about the idea of heartbreak having control over you, like alcohol or substance abuse, a drug and asking to be excused for out of character actions because this feeling has completely taken over.”

His hiatus didn’t do anything to dampen his fans love for the music, as demonstrated by the artist’s most recent gig in Manchester back in August, which sold out in less than two hours. Through this performance, he introduced his whole next album from start to finish for a captivated audience, and even treated them to a preview of a song from his third album. With such a show of support, a UK tour has since been announced culminated at Manchester’s Gorilla (500 capacity) on 30th November (see details below).


Upcoming November headline tour:

05/11 – Komedia Studio, Brighton

07/11 – Headrow House, Leeds

08/11 – The Cuban Embassy, Birmingham

27/11- Thousand Island, London

30/11 – Gorilla, Manchester

Song of the Day: Linger – Fred Lessore

London-based songwriter and musician FRED LESSORE – of Anglo – French and Malagasy descent – has released his stunning record ‘Linger’.

‘Linger’ is written from the perspective of a woman facing doubt. Produced by Pete Boxsta Martin (James Arthur, Jessie J), the stirring ballad pulls on the shadows of a past love, confronting the burning question many of us have to ask ourselves: Am I ready to try again?

Speaking on the release Fred says “It took me less than 20 minutes to write and record the demo for ‘Linger’. It was easy to pull inspiration from the strong women in my family; I’ve seen each of them carry their battle scars with grace, dignity and acceptance. At the crossroads of love and loss, ‘Linger’ is a drop in the ocean of what it might take to build a strong woman, and I only hope that I’ve done them justice.”

Whilst recording new music, Fred has been emerging through London’s live circuit, including bookings at Proud Camden & Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club.
