Blog interview: Mary Lovett

Hello Mary, how are you? I am very well, thank you, Del.  Congratulations on the release of I Heard The Moon Is In C. How does it feel?  It feels really good to finally get it out into the world. It’s been a bit of a long process, and it’s really lovely to finally have a …

Single Review: “Power Of The Wolf” – Beth Roars.

This song has so much of a punch behind it I don’t even know where to begin. First up, the production value is up there… It combines eastern melodies and otherworldly synth sounds with electronica and pop sounds.  The lyrics speak of uncertainty in life but when it comes down to it when you take …

Blog interview: Blue Capricorn

Hello Rodrigo how are you?  I’m doing well, thank you. Trying to stay cool in this 100 degree Texas heat. It’s brutal out here. Congratulations on the release of “Palo Santo” how does it feel?  Releasing music is mostly a nerve-wracking moment or an exciting one for me, but we’ll say we’re leaning more towards …

Single Review: “The World Is Here For You” – Immy Owusu

Single Review: “Drawn To You” – Brapurple & Gabrielle Sey

To Ghana – the motherland – we go for this, and it’s got the taste of suya, jollof rice and an ice cold Fanta in the summer sun with ice dripping down the sides.  In other words this song deserves the chef’s kiss.  Gabrielle Sey and Brapurple join forces on this Gabrielle bringing the soulful …

Single Review: “12 Inches Of Love” – Alice Offley

Alice is back with a track that could burn up the dance floor easily! It’s got a groove for days based around a four on the floor beat, punctuated with timbales – brining in elements of latin rhythms, the basis of which disco in New York was built on in the early 70s. This song …

Single Review: “When I Fall” – BRAVE JAMES ft. Oli Rockberger

BRAVE JAMES is back with a new track featuring a singer songwriter that I love and respect, Oli Rockberger. And they deliver! Whereas the last single was a collaboration with with Blue Lab Beats and had a more soulful hip hop vibe this is folktronica at its best, catchy ethereal melodies with dreamy synths, the …
