Song of the Day: Imagine – Alex Dutty

Having picked up hundreds of thousands of streams, ALEXY DUTTY has played support slots for the likes of Kano, Ghetts, Wiley, and Bashy.

When he isn’t opening shows for grime royalty, the London-based rapper is renowned for trawling up and down the country selling his mixtapes. The buzz of the support slots and his DIY work ethic saw him sell 60,000 copies of his mixtapes collectively, earning him a nomination at the coveted Official Mixtape Awards two years running.

Taken from his new album, ‘Knock Down Ginger’, the fiery spitter once again step up to the plate and drop his latest reflective track titled ‘Imagine’ with some serious swagger…

New Music Video: Same Old Me – Dabbla

Potent Funk’s recruit DABBLA has unveiled the visual for track ‘Same old Me’.

EP Review: All In Me – Laolu

LAOLU‘s 2018 single, ‘How To Feel’ has got me fired up enough to look out for her debut  EP, ‘All In Me’…and judging from the strong support she received from BBC 1xtra and The Best Line Fits, it seems that I’m not the only one left hanging for the nine-track set.

Kicking off with a moody introduction through single ‘Buffering’, the EP predominantly delves into the haziness of smooth R&B and soul. Fifth effort, ‘Disconnect’, showcases a flair of the blues, intensifying the spine-tingling sensation presented in the EP. ‘So Right’ momentarily breaks away from the collection’s misty theme by injecting a smooth chirpiness of the Afro/reggae-esque bassline.

Those who admire the musical prowess of artist H.E.R, will definitely warm towards the South-East London songstress, who wants to offer the listener a fresh perspective on traditional R&B/Soul – and she does it perfectly through ‘All In Me’. Check her out below:

Song of the Day: Get It Right – Phebe Edwards (ft. Mark Asari)

North London soul singer, PHEBE EDWARDS dominates today’s hotspot and delivers her latest single ‘Get It Right’, featuring The Voice’s Mark Asari. Produced by Luke ‘G Kid’ Grant, ‘Get It Right’, explores whether trust can be reinstalled in a relationship, accompanied with an infectious R&B vibe, reminiscent of the 90s  – think SWV, TLC and Aaliyah.

‘Get It Right’ is the follow-up single to ‘Space’ featuring Cameron Bloomfield, released last year. The single was supported by Music Musings and Such, Lock Magazine, The Music Site and Hype Magazine. The incredible Syleena Johnson featured ‘Space’ on her Spotify playlist as one of her ’Chill favs’.

New R&B Sensation Emiko Releases Brand New Single, ‘CareFree’

R&B newcomer EMIKO kicks off the new year on a irresistibly smooth note with new single ‘Carefree’. Sporting a laid-back neo soul vibe, the Daniel Sappore-produced track displays the young crooner’s undisputed ability to woo the listeners (especially the ladies) with alluring lyrics, delivered in his impeccable velvety vocals.

The West London soul singer has had an enormously successful 2018 in which he has been thoroughly working on building up a solid fanbase by performing at renowned venues such as Notting Hill ArtsClub, and getting his artistry to a next level by spending endless hours time in the studio. Already his previous single ´R U DOWN‘ has garnered huge support from the likes of BBC 1xtra’s DJ Ace, Reprezent FM and LDNRBS and was chosen by former Westside FM’s host Rebecca Judd’s ‘Westside track of the week’ after its release.

‘Carefree’ is taken from his upcoming, highly anticipating debut EP which will be released in the near future.
