New Music Video: Hype Like Supreme – Sub Blue

Electronic soul/ R&B newcomer SUB BLUE released a visual to accompany new single ‘Hype Like Supreme’.

Speaking of the new production he says: “The aim here was to simply show the blurred lines between hype and true love. It’s another flip on the chorus lyrics. This culture is real – its pretty much the same level of infatuation and emotion that you would usually equate to love or a mad crush”

‘Hype Like Supreme’ is the first track taken from his new EP, out in 2018. It was produced by British soul artist and producer XamVolo.

SUB BLUE grew up in the suburbs of Merseyside in the North of England. He was named the first ever ‘One to watch’ by Liverpool International Music Festival’s Academy, he was just leaving school at the time. Since then he’s been honing his sound with local talent including XamVolo, Teesoulful and SPXKEN and putting the final touches to his debut EP.

New Track: Hype Like Supreme – Sub Blue

Taking his name from his self-described style of music, “suburban blues”, SUB BLUE offers a fresh take on chilled out, alternative introspective R&B through brand new single, ‘Hype Like Supreme’, the first track taken from Sub Blue’s new EP, out in 2018. It was produced by British soul artist and producer  XAMVOLO.

His  EP, ‘Suburban View, is produced by the likes of Sir Dylan (Weeknd, Solange, Logic), A.V (Frank Ocean) and XamVolo,  is a glimpse at the life of teens trying to find their place in the world, while navigating peer and social pressure and trying to define their own voice. For now, SUB BLUE gives a taste of that style and direction, with ‘Hype Like Supreme’, an ode to both a teenage crush described using the abnormal craze evoked by drops of coveted items like Supreme.

EP Review: Chirality – XamVolo

xamzolo-chirality-ep

If you heard of XAMVOLO then you’ll certainly heard his leading soulful/jazz number, Down…and if you dig the single, well you’ll be in for a treat with his four-track EP, Chirality.

The laid-lack set is, by large, a continuation of Down – a hazy juxtaposition of the aforementioned genres, which showcase a Sade-level of class – and that’s REALLY hard to top.

With irresistibly hypnotic pieces that can be hailed as modern classics, this (clever) cool cat has positioned himself as a promising and timeless artist who will have music fanatics, all from generations, buying his future projects blind. If you’re not convinced, hit that play button.
