Song of the Day: Say So – Sophie Faith

SOPHIE FAITH teamed up with producer Midnight Phunk for the first Song of the Day of the year – ‘Say So’ – their unique collaboration that’s set to grab the industry’s attention.

 ‘Say So’ acts as a cathartic vessel addressing regret for a previous relationship, with SOPHIE FAITH spilling her emotions throughout the song, metaphorically laying bare her truth.

Renowned for his work with singer Jamilah Barry on her outstanding single ‘Dance Moves’, Midnight Phunk is steadily building a reputation as one of the most gifted producers to emerge from an already bustling north London music scene. His ability to craft soundscapes that allow individual artists to excel is a commodity that is in high demand.

 Something that is equally as coveted are the soulful vocal skills of SOPHIE FAITH, who over recent years has attained a loyal following due to various features with the likes of Coops that has seen anticipation grow ahead of the unveiling of her own material. She has been working with enigmatic producer Talos, in addition to preparing for her official debut EP with producer Aston Rudi, which is due for release in this year…have a listen to this irresistibly sassy track.

New Track: Hype Like Supreme – Sub Blue

Taking his name from his self-described style of music, “suburban blues”, SUB BLUE offers a fresh take on chilled out, alternative introspective R&B through brand new single, ‘Hype Like Supreme’, the first track taken from Sub Blue’s new EP, out in 2018. It was produced by British soul artist and producer  XAMVOLO.

His  EP, ‘Suburban View, is produced by the likes of Sir Dylan (Weeknd, Solange, Logic), A.V (Frank Ocean) and XamVolo,  is a glimpse at the life of teens trying to find their place in the world, while navigating peer and social pressure and trying to define their own voice. For now, SUB BLUE gives a taste of that style and direction, with ‘Hype Like Supreme’, an ode to both a teenage crush described using the abnormal craze evoked by drops of coveted items like Supreme.

The electronic soul/ R&B newcomer grew up in the suburbs of Merseyside in the North of England. He was named the first ever ‘One to watch’ by Liverpool International Music Festival’s Academy, he was just leaving school at the time.

Since then he’s been honing his sound with local talent including XamVolo, Teesoulful and SPXKEN and putting the final touches to his debut EP.

EP Review: Thunder In The Desert – Amique

AMIQUE‘s self-produced EP, ‘Thunder In The Desert’, explores the realms of spirituality along with love, loneliness and fear, alternating between the richness of soulful gospel and his holistic-ish/hazy take on modern R&B/soul.

With this small set, AMIQUE has built up just enough curiosity, through his well-controlled falsetto, for you to look out for his next move – check it out.
