New Music Video: Swimming – Cherri V (ft. Roxxann)

Beginning the year with sultry single ‘Swimming’,  which has been garnering strong early support from BBC 1Xtra plus others, CHERRI V returns with the accompanying visuals for her latest offering.

Produced by Asylum 33, who have previously worked with Tinie Tempah, Mr. Eazi, Shakka, and Bonkaz, among others, the music video for ‘Swimming’ sees Cherri V and RoxXxan bringing a more relaxed and organic visual element to the experimental R&B production, as they party among friends, while the British R&B/Soul singer/songwriter gets to know her leading man, without the usual pressures that come with meeting someone new.

Speaking of the inspiration for her ‘Swimming’ visuals, British R&B/Soul singer/songwriter said, “I’m glad Asylum 33 were able to capture that house party relaxed feel. I also wanted to take a little more of a casual approach for this video, compared to ‘Leave Me Be’, and shove my real friends in front of the camera lol. The shots in the pool were a highlight for me! I’m really proud of this visual”.

EP Review: Dreamlife – J Kas

The reason why I admire this guy so much – and is forever welcomed on this blog – because he’s fearless, always coming with something different every single time.

His previous projects ‘Snapchat’ and ‘One Six’ is a mix bag of electro dance with Latin flair, spiced up banishment and smooth after hours jams. On the other side of the spectrum, his recent collaboration with Cellar Door Moon Crow sees the Sheffield hip-hop contender step up to the plate and rip through the sporadic rock chords.

Now J.KAS turn his hands to something completely different with latest project, ‘Dreamlife’. Named after a London producer who produced some of his past materials – including ‘Cali Dreaming’ and ‘To The Top’ (from One Six EP) – the four-track set possess a strong of presence hazy golden hip-hop/boombap, where this BBC introducing artist’s smooth delivery rapidly slides through the bars of each track.

Never the one to sit back and relax, J.KAS took his latest set on tour – named after the EP- across Europe, visiting Belgium, Paris, Porto and Lisbon where he encouraged the locals of each city to get involved in the creative process of the music videos.

Here’s your chance to check out the visuals for first single from the EP ‘Overtime’ released today…and expect a whole load of visuals from this guy in the near future.

In the meantime, hit the play button on ‘Dreamlife’ below:

New Music Video: SNM – Icey Stanley (ft. Ironik)

Adding to the lineage of talent emerging from the Midlands, Coventry native ICEY STANLEY  join forces with Ironik in his latest single ‘SNM’. Having previously worked together on Ironik’s album ‘Truth Be Told’ the pair bring a new dimension to their sound by delving into smooth R&B influences where the tantalising melodic flow compliments sleek piano loops that echo throughout the track.

Establishing his roots within Coventry’s Hip Hop scene, ICEY STANLEY garnered initial attention via his local music community. His recognition began to spiral as he was seen supporting UK artists including JME, Fuse ODG, Meridian Dan, Big Narstie, Lady Leshurr and Devlin whilst his electric performances and aptitude at stage delivery awarded him with the opportunities to play shows in Africa, Europe and America including sets at The Global Youth Conference in Carolina and Loveworld Music Festival in Nigeria, exposing his musical prowess to different audiences across the world.

Delving into reminiscent state of mind with ‘SNM’ the track is fuelled with “Late night feels; when you’re left alone with your thoughts”- Icey Stanley

New Music Video: Think Of Me – Jeorgia

Vocal powerhouse JEORGIA delivers stripped-back sultry vocals in her retrospective single ‘Think Of Me’. Reflecting on the turmoil of past relationships JEORGIA delves into an introspective mind-set as she reiterates the million-dollar question; does he still ‘Think Of Me’.

Her emotive vocals echo through the depths of the track, which is laced with a crisp yet delicate tone that showcases her fine tuned vocal range. The stripped back, piano-led instrumental remains the backdrop of the track and the isolation of her vocals creates a sense of vulnerability, yet a strong sense of strength rises through as her compelling tone is given the space to shine.

JEORGIA‘s incredible vocal ability is unquestionable and the south London native was the one of the first artists to be signed to the recently created Amy Winehouse Management. Having built a loyal following via the release of standout YouTube covers, she also received recognition on Link Up TV where she performed her own renditions of Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’ on the hugely popular ‘Behind Barz’ series.

Music is the catalyst that fuels JEORGIA’s creativity and her stunning voice harbours her passion for the art. Delving into the realities of moving on and heartbreak ‘Think Of Me’ paints the perfect picture
