New Track: Come Over – Ricardo Williams (ft. Teedra Moses)

It’s been a while since RICARDO WILLIAMS graced his powerhouse instrument on the blog –  but he’s now back in impeccable style with his first single of 2019, ‘Come Over’. Out today on all download/streaming sites, William’s latest offering serves as a teaser to his eagerly awaited EP ‘Intermission’.

Co-produced by Nayla ‘Sillkey’ Nyassa who has produced tracks for the likes of Craig David, Jacob Banks and Vanessa White, ‘Come Over’ will sure heighten the hype of his forthcoming EP as the smooth after hours joint features Grammy-nominated R&B queen Teedra Moses, who undeniably, gives the remix a new lease of life.

2018 was a big year for Williams with the release of new music to various live performances. This Included supporting Faith Evans on her UK tour and recently being signed to the label Recordbox spearheaded by BBC Radio (1Xtra) DJ ACE.

2019 has only just got into full swing but expect to see and hear so much more from the big man of R&B from here on out.

New Track: Headloss – [ K S R ] (ft. Time Elijah)

Manchester-based soul singer, [ K S R ] continues to pave his way in the R&B world with his debut EP, ‘Unfiltered’, coming out this Friday (22nd March).

The 19-year-old songwriter delivers his lyrics with ease, stylistically paying homage to his influences – D’Angelo, Erykah Badu and Miguel –  whilst curating his own refreshing sound, achieving a perfect balance of bedroom soul, lo-fi hip-hop and R&B.

‘Headloss’ is the latest single to be released from the upcoming EP, a contemporary approach on neo-soul akin to artists such as Tom Misch, Miguel and Frank Ocean. Released last Thursday, the laid back production oozes pure class, allowing the stunningly refined vocals to shine through.

[ K S R ]’s – real name Roosevelt Kazaula Sigsbert – debut single ‘H / Er’ sparked interest from Konny Kon, one half of Children of Zeus, which set in motion a friendship and musical journey that saw Children of Zeus utilise their 15 years in the music industry to show [ K S R ] the ropes. Since then, the young urban prodigy quit university to focus on music and signed to the label Polarface and received support from online tastemakers such as Gal-dem and Dummy and radio play from BBC 1Xtra.

Following the release of his debut EP, [ K S R ] will perform at his six date UK tour, kicking off at YES in Manchester on the 2nd April.

Too Good to miss, wrap your ears around ‘Headloss’.

New Track: Girlfriend – Alison Dell

Hailing all the way from Bristol, electro-pop songstress ALISON DELL delivers her spanking new single entitled ‘Girlfriend’, available on all download/streaming sites from last Friday.

Dell’s latest offering – which kicks off with a moody ambience, building up to an energetic outro- documents the darker side of relationships and questions the behaviours of certain people involved in them.

‘Girlfriend’ follows Alison’s debut EP ‘Over’, released last May. Lead track, ‘Grenade’, was played on BBC Introducing in the West and was praised by presenters Sam Bonham and Richard Pitt, with Sam hailing Alison “the next pop princess”.

Start your week on the smooth note and have a listen to ‘Girlfriend’.

Song of the Day: Juice – Mike Ray (ft. Lecs Blvck & IamTerrier)

From Coventry to Colorado and back again, the latest drop from Polish born, England based rapper MIKE RAY busts the hip-hop gaff wide open. ‘Juice’ leans way back on a lazy US beat, laid down by the Real Age beats, and sees Lecs Blvck and IamTerrier chipping in on vocal duties, a silky flow over a glassful of not-from-concentrate groove.
