Arletis – Toxic

#NewMusic from New York, USA

The mood that Arletis creates on ‘Toxic’ is smooth and calm, juxtaposing completely with the theme of the song. Clever clever! The reverb thick snare gives the track a shimmer aqueous feel. We also love the whispered conversation flash (very 90s R&B).

Jovani Occomy – Walk Away

#NewMusic from USA

The delicate yet slightly distorted opening on ‘Walk Away’ from Jovani Occomy suggested vulnerability flecked with anger. The lyrics, beautifully delivered, tell the same story. The beat and bassline have that slightly off kilter swing that the likes of Kaytranada have been treating us to. We’ve got another contender in the ring now. Keep your ear out for what’s to come from Occomy.

Still Woozy – Lucy

#NewMusic from Oakland, USA

Classy left of centre alt-pop from Still Woozy on ‘Lucy’. The multitude of sounds that combine and ping pong around the stereo field on this track will wrap you up and keep you engrossed from start to finish.

Madam West – Erstwhile, Manatee

#NewMusic from New York, USA

There is so much groove sitting within Madam West’s track ‘Erstwhile, Manatee’. A song of many moods and emotions that come together coherently and have been presented in a sublimely produced package. Time to book a flight to New York to watch this done live we think.

Knox White – You’ve Been My Girl

#NewMusic from Los Angeles, USA

It’s Friday, you’re cooking up some fine flavours on the stove, the rouge is in the decanter ready for the arrival of that someone you’ve been aiming to impress for the longest time. Knox White ‘You’ve Been My Girl’ is the track that will seal the deal for you. Brimming with suave funk and offering up a vocal that we bet would make a sweet a cappella for a Kaytranada Remix. Just be careful you don’t forget the food on the hob when you’re cosying up on the rug next to the fire with this on in the background.
