Maségo – Navajo

#NewMusic from Norfolk, USA

Don’t you know, it’s time to show, your love for Maségo, and his new track ‘Navajo’ [maybe we should have pursued a career as a rap duo].

Na but seriously, this latest jam from the TrapHouseJazz don is pure vibes with it’s mellow beat and infectious singalong chorus hook. He also recently performed the track for showcase selectors extraordinaire Colors.

Maségo is a seriously gifted artiste. If you’re not familiar with is work, check out the improvised version of ‘Tadow’ he recorded with FKJ at the Red Bull Studio in Paris. Double sax madness!

Maségo ‘Navajo’ is out now.

Yazmin Lacey – Black Moon [EP]

#NewMusic from Nottingham x London, England

Yazmin Lacey sings with the directness and emotional clarity of classic soul. Having written in her bedroom for her whole life, she began to play acoustic shows in 2014. As her reputation grew locally in Nottingham, she came to meet the diverse group of musicians who would form her band. Together, they’ve written an EP which combines Yazmin’s incisive songwriting with the vitality of jazz.

The ‘Black Moon’ EP was written and produced by Yazmin Lacey and the Running Circle featuring members of Three Body Trio. It’s out today on a strictly limited vinyl run with the digital release later this month. Get your copy from Running Circle.

Marius – Easy

#NewMusic from Oslo, Norway

We’d not heard much from Norway’s Marius before his new track ‘Easy’ but this one hit us round the chops hard from the very first beat. The lo-fi drum madness that opens the track steps aside to welcome a gleaming synth chord stomp before rejoining the party in a big way. It’s like the love child of Dorian Concept and Hudson Mohawke.

Marius ‘Easy’ is out now.

Tyzz – Stop

#NewMusic from London, England

Brockley MC Tyzz has delivered a cracker with his new track ‘Stop’. Skittering beats, fast flows and a lyrical nod to Dizzee’s ‘Stop Dat’ from the seminal ‘Boy In Da Corner’.

Check Tyzz ‘Stop’ and a load of other top productions on his SoundCloud. For even more goodness, get into his crew – Vision Crew.

Malihini – Miss

#NewMusic from London, England

London x Rome duo Malihini (Giampaolo Speziale and Federica Caiozzo) have announced their debut headline show at The Waiting Room, London on 2nd October and entreated us all to join them with their new single ‘Miss’.

The hypnotically repetitive tinkle of the hook acts as the backbone to the song as it evolves. The layering of expansive bass drones, swirls of guitars and soft, delicate vocals from Caiozzo over the top of Speziale’s Brandon Boyd-esq lead culminates in a descending three chord explosion of sound.
