brassBrooklyn based duo Brasstracks consists of Ivan Jackson on the trumpet and Conor Rayne on the drums giving us a blend of jazz and electronic, they describe as “future brass”. The duo’s production could be last heard on Chance The Rapper’s “No Problem” feat. 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne and Anderson .Paak’s “Am I Wrong” feat. Schoolboy Q.

Recently, they released their 7-track Good Love EP and it is features a range of artists such as London’s Jay Prince and Roses Gabor, and Virginia’s Masego, who recently released his amazing jazzy project, Loose Thoughts, just to name a few. Good Love effuses a feel good aura and i’m loving it.


Syd “Amazing”

Syd-620x413 Love makes us do the craziest things we’ve never thought we would do and Syd reminds us we’re not the only ones. The singer takes a break from The Internet and brings us a solo track titled “Amazing”.  Syd gently sings over Dornik’s silky production about the crazy behavior that comes with being in love.

“Never was the jealous type, I guess you made me.”

Production by Cam O’bi and Isaiah’s unique flow provide us with a laid back, but serious track.

On Friday, TDE’s founder and CEO Anthony Tiffith tweeted the date “09.02.16”, but who knows who’s album that can be… We all just have to patiently wait on it.

Sunni Colón “Black Hole Sun (777)”

SunniColon_2016-03240_sjpixq Sunni Colón brings light to darkness with his mellow rendition of a 90s grunge tune, Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun” . The track transitions into an upbeat groovy outro. Check out “Black Hole Sun” and his latest EP Thierry Disko below.

Over email, Colón told The FADER, “I was inspired by the current social and political climate of the world. This is my perspective as a black man living through the chaos. I’ve been hurt as a human being on this planet and I’ve realized the earth’s bedlam is simply an image of our own inner turmoil.”

He continued, “There’s too much on my conscience and I don’t feel secure in darkness. I’m somewhere in between these thin walls and gloomy reflections but not aloof to the bleak in the world. All we have is love and mirth as beings on this planet. So the concept of creation is cathartic as an artist and this is my voice in world.”-TheFADER

NAO “Girlfriend” video

nao-girlfriend-video-compressedIt hasn’t even been a week since NAO’s exquisite debut album For All We Know has been out and i’ve seen nothing, but positive reviews. Yesterday, the London goddess released a visual for her sensual single, “Girlfriend” and also one of my favorites on her album. She uses teasing pauses and soars by the end of the chorus,”… to make us fly.” The visual takes place in a housing complex displaying those searching for love.

“When I’m your lady, you’ll know how beautiful and mystical you are.”


Ramriddlz “H2o”


It’s been a few months since Ramriddlz dropped his playful tropical feel project Venus, right on time for Summer ’16. He’s now back with another sultry jam to add on your summer playlist with a chemistry lesson titled, “H2o”. Can’t help but to laugh at his hilarious, but yet still hot metaphors, “slap it like spatula, all in your vaginal.”

“I get em wetter than water. Dihydrogen Monoxide, when I’m in those thighs…that’s chemistry.”


Bibi Bourelly “TIDES”


Bibi has been unapologetic since her first debut EP, Free The Real: Part 1. She continues with that attitude, not letting any tides slow her down and riding her own wave with her new record “TIDES”. The German singer/songwriter concludes the record with Nina Simone’s words, “To get more aware of themselves and where they came from and what they are into….”

This girl really doesn’t give a care in the world what people think and I loooove it. Check out “TIDES” and a Future cover below. Oh yeah and she also wrote Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have my Money”.

“If you want a piece of me…Best take my whole heart or you won’t have nothing.”
