Song of the Day: Skip The Talking – Unique Hastings


Elements of seductive soul, R&B, Hip-Hop and pop, has pushed  UNIQUE HASTINGS‘ latest single, Skip The Talking to the dish of the day hotspot by NEW LEASE MUSIC. The sultry banger is set to appear on his upcoming album The Heart of a Dreamer.

A singer, rapper, songwriter and producer, the South Londoner soul-pop sensation, is a multi-talented artist with music in his veins. His father owned a recording studio and his mother taught him to sing. On top of this, both his grandparents were musicians.

All this spurred him to follow his passions as a musician. He has since been involved in a number of exciting projects, producing music for a Virgin Media digital campaign as well as collaborating with Chris Brown for a remix of the R&B artist’s single Run it. His touring meanwhile has taken him all over the world, playing acclaimed venues such as the O2 Arena in London and Apollo Theater in New York, supporting names as big as Ludacris and De La Soul.

Unique Hastings is likely to appeal to fans of Pharrell Williams, Justin Timberlake and Seal, combining their collective pop appeal, whilst also channelling his own distinct smoky vocal tone and stylistic diversity.

On top of his musical endeavours, the singer has also co-starred in an award-winning short film titled Shantell Town, the soundtrack of which he also co-produced.

The slick crooner has another exciting single on the way titled Gimme All Ur Luvin, plus a full-length album titled The Heart of A Dreamer set to drop next year.

Now you know everything you need to know about this hot property, it’s time to sample his latest track…happy Friday!

EP Review: When It Rains – Kyle Lettman

Kyle Lettman When it Rains EP

Following the explosive, multi-genre EP Under Construction, KYLE LETTMAN takes it back a couple of tempos (and back to the 90s) with his latest offerings, When It Rains, released earlier this month.

The sweetest old school R&B slow jams take centre stage in the six-track production, where the London-based songster gives the between-the-sheets treatment to Adele’s hit, Hello.

LADIES (or guys!): if you go weak at the knees as soon as you hear a ballad, well  it’s definitely worth investing your time in this little treasure.

Must Listens: Hello, Love language, When It Rains.
