Maiday, You

We’ve previously featured Maiday, with her song ‘Wish I Met You First’. Now, the London songstress returns with a ballad-esque joint, full of echoing vocals and thudding beats, taken from her forthcoming EP ‘Anatomy’.

❤ those vocals, ❤ those drums:

Keep those ears and eyes open for the forthcoming EP, by following Maiday on Facebook, Twitter and Souncloud.

Geronimo [Sheppard] // P.R Remix feat. Awon

Just when I’m stuck on my jazz mood, one of my favorite producers sent me his rework of Sheppard‘s track entitled Geronimo. As I hit play and that sexy jazz intro slowly comes to life, I was sold. Bless him for that extra saxophone by Jinu Joo. Nothing is more satisfying than hearing saxophone on a slow lazy day.

Transforming an Indie-Pop track into Jazz-Hop, P.R and Awon clearly knows how to make something good into something equally as good [if not better]. Awon’s rap part complemented the flow of the track which added to the flare of the mix. It is quite addicting. Hit play and enjoy the smooth vibes.

Sam Gellaitry – “childhood”

Not one to rest on his laurels, following the massive success of debut EP Short Stories and EU tour Sammy G is back, with a brand new track for your ears. “childhood”, with its blissful flutes sounds like something from the Short Stories cutting room floor, and yet is still an indisputable banger that’ll fill with you nostalgia and remind you why we love Sam’s music so much from the get-go.

salute – “Silver Tides” (DrewsThatDude Remix)

DrewsThatDude continues his streak of home-runs with a fresh R&B take on salute’s recent single. While the original was a fast-paced, uptempo affair Drew slows it down, adding his trademark lush keys and thick bass. Navi may not have made the cut (which is a bit of a hurrah for those who found her annoying in Ocarina of Time), but Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie” vocals remain, and after pushing play the New York musician’s take will undoubtedly capture your ears.

Jay Prince – “Good Right Now” (prod. Gravez & DrewsThatDude)

London spitter Jay Prince links up with Gravez and DrewsThatDude, two of the most explosive producers on the scene for a new feel good anthem. Echoing the positive mindset that ran through his recent BeFor Our Time project, “Good Right Now” finds the emcee recounting recent experiences from hanging in Toronto to spending nights reflecting on how far he’s come. This is cookout music, and reminds me when Kanye described So Help Me God’’s sound in his recent interview with The Breakfast Club.
