Upcoming Release: Hiding Away – Stephanie Sounds (ft. Rick Leon James)

East London songbird STEPHANIE SOUNDS gets geared up for the release of her forthcoming single, ‘Hiding Away’, the second offering from her well-received debut album, ‘Much Better’, released last October.

Showcasing on-point harmonies, blissfully backed by delicate guitar plucks, which gives off a rich folklore/worldly affair, ‘Hiding Away’ is definitely an anthem for anyone who’s been hurt and betrayed by close friends – but through the journey of self-healing – the experience will make you a stronger person. Bass player Rick Leon James – who has worked with musical heavyweights such as Tinie Tempah and Wretch 32 – injects a real gutsy funk to the bass line.

As well as a vocal phenomenon on stage, Stephanie is also an up and coming fashion designer

As well as providing backing vocals for some of the world’s leading artists, including Celine Dion, Will Young, Jessie J, Blur, Florence and The Machine, Kasabian, Daniel Bedingfield, Natasha Bedingfield, Lemar, Jamelia, Westlife and McFly, STEPHANIE SOUNDS is also a promising designer who has launched her label, So London Boutique 

The clothing line is gaining attention from people across the globe through blogs, social media and big stages at festivals. Her edgy and trendy designs, brought to life by African prints, are frequently requested by other artists and creatives for their events and performances.

‘Hiding Away’ will be available on all major digital/download sites from 17th August. Check it out below:

New Music Video: Unknown – Pluto Lèbon

​Introducing exciting new British talent, London singer and songwriter PLUTO LÈBON, with her brand new single ‘Unknown’, accompanied with a gripping and thought-provoking music video. Produced by Ezzrah (Skepta, JME, Terri Walker) and Ayobeatz (Wretch 32, Alexandra Burke, Chip, Wiley), ‘Unknown’ is taken from PLUTO LÈBON’s forthcoming debut EP ‘Atlantis’, set for release this summer.

Directed by Ash Riley and TGD (Da Beatfreakz, Loick Essien, Rough Copy), the black and white visuals for ‘Unknown’, and the vastly deserted location the video is filmed in, create quite the dark and pensive backdrop, which brings the record and its emotions to life. Additional themes of death, religion, famine, and migration, also run through the music video, causing the viewer to further reflect on Pluto’s message.

Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘Unknown’, Lèbon says, “I wrote this song from a place of real uncertainty, where I just wanted answers for things happening around me, but it can also mean different things for the listener. We’re all searching for our own truths and answers. Whatever the question is, I hope this song can spur listeners into actively seeking the answers we need”.

Check out the video for ‘Unknown’.

 


New Music Video: Be With You – Jessica Agombar

Rising east London singer-songwriter JESSICA AGOMBAR gave the music scene a taste of her addictive, one of a kind R&B sounds when she released her debut EP ‘Bullet For Your Love: Chapter 1’ earlier this year. With the EP seeing her mixing smooth R&B stylings with grittier hip-hop and grime sounds, Jessica returns with the captivating visual for one of the project’s tracks – the hypnotic ‘Be With You’.

Already picking-up support from the likes of Noisey – who described her sound as ‘infectious’ – Radio 1 and 1Xtra DJs MistaJam and DJ Target, collaborating with the likes of Iain James (Craig David, Emeli Sandé, Wretch 32) and Levi Lennox (Zayn Malik) and just recently signing a publishing deal with Stella Songs and Sony/ATV, Jessica quickly caught the attention of music fans and credible music outlets with the release of her debut EP.

Comprising a collection of 5 songs written by Jessica herself, featuring production from some of the UK’s freshest and hottest, new production talent and gaining support from Spotify on their ‘New Music Friday’ playlist, the ‘Bullet For Your Love: Chapter 1’ EP is a soulful journey of love and loss from Jessica’s own personal experience, telling the story of being in love with the wrong kind of guy and the highs and lows that can bring.

With the debut of her new visual, an already rapidly growing fanbase and the promise of new music coming soon, JESSICA AGOMBAR is on course to end the year with a bang which only signals huge things for 2018. Stay tuned!

New Track: Road Closed – Angel

After riding high on previous single ‘Hi Grade’, which has been streamed over 300,000 times, ANGEL continues his unstoppable ascent with the release of track ‘Road Closed’, taken from his EP ‘Her’.

The addictively slick R&B number is expected to continue the success previous releases: ‘Hi Grade’ was described as ‘groovy reggae meets R&B hit’ by The Fader. Harmony Samuels produced ‘Fvxk With You’, which featured Georgia spitter Rich Homie Quan, made a huge splash across both sides of the Atlantic. ‘Her’ EP has been streamed over 2.5 million times globally.

His recent hype stems from 2016 which saw ANGEL collaborating with rising UK rapper Stefflon Don on the sultry throwback sounds of ‘Hop On’ and Haile from WSTRN on the powerful ‘Rude Boy’, which along with the remix – where he joined forces with JME (Boy Better Know), Wretch 32 and Tally – collectively amassed over 2 million combined streams and garnered support from Radio 1Xtra and Rinse FM.

Signed in the US by Motown records VP, Ezekiel Lewis (also responsible for forming the group The Clutch who have gone on to write and produce hits for Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Neyo and more), alongside Island Records, ANGEL continues to reinforce his position as one of the UK’s hottest R&B talents. With Kehlani, Mila J, Pop and Oak (known for their work with the likes of Chris Brown, Kehlani and Nicki Minaj), Grammy award-winning producer Swiss Beatz, Neff U and Prince Charlez (who recently collaborated with Rihanna on ‘Anti’) on the list as just some of the credible names, ANGEL has recently worked with and more new music and live shows coming, there is no doubt that Angel’s debut album is going to rock both sides of the shores, making 2017 and beyond his for the taking…have a listen to this incredible talent-on-the-rise.

Hot on the heels of a huge summer which saw him bring his mesmerising vocals and must-see stage performances to both Wireless and V Festivals, UK R&B singer-songwriter ANGEL has shown no signs of slowing down with the release of his new EP HER earlier this month – which has already been streamed almost 400,000 times in less than two weeks – and now the brand new visual for his track Fvxk With You featuring US rap artist Rich Homie Quan.

Sampling 90s girl-group Jade’s iconic New Jill Swing jam Don’t Walk Away, ANGEL continues  with his unique mix of addictive 90s samples mixed with his distinctive, soulful vocals on the Harmony Samuels produced Fvxk With You. With west London meeting America’s ‘dirty south’, delivered courtesy of an explosive 16 bars from Rich Homie Quan, the Atlanta, Georgia hip-hop artist currently taking the music industry by storm, Fvxk With You has already started to make a huge splash across both sides of the Atlantic and is set to be taken to the new heights with the new visual, filmed in the rapper’s ATL neighbourhood.

HER EP is a collection of six slick and sultry R&B jams produced by Angel and showcasing his incredible songwriting ability and flair for hypnotic hooks and earworm melodies. Seeing him continue to build on the waves he created with his previous releases this year, the EP features two further new tracks, the soon-to-be new favourites Thelma and Louise and the Bobby Brown sampling Me & You. HER also includes Hop On featuring rising UK rapper Stefflon Don and the powerful Rude Boy featuring Haile from WSTRN, which along with the remix – which saw him join forces with JME (Boy Better Know), Wretch 32 and Tally – collectively amassed over 2 million combined streams and garnered support from Radio 1Xtra and Rinse FM.

Signed in the US by Motown records VP, Ezekiel Lewis (also responsible for forming the group The Clutch who have gone on to write and produce hits for Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Neyo and more), alongside Island Records, ANGEL continues to reinforce his position as one of the UK’s hottest R&B talents.
