Aieesha Charles has a beautifully smooth voice. Known as ‘Sweetz’ to her closest, she is a West London born twenty-something with an ambition to have her voice heard. Singing and writing from the heart, she shows us raw and brand new material that aches with emotion. ‘Changes’ has a pop-R&B feel, and captures the structure of an accessible song perfectly. Talent runs in her family, and I know she has more under her belt. Check it out.
Duncan Gerow is the master of mashups, we’ve featured his music on First Ear a couple of times before and he’s one that we always have an eye on. He’s currently working on a new EP, but has taken some time out from that to put together this beautiful R&B mashup mix for us. Listen and grab the free download.

LA based songstress Malia presents her self titled début EP, a soulful acoustic release executive produced by Odd Future’s The Internet. We asked Malia a few questions to get to know her a little better…
Canadian Future Beats producer, Sassy Kitty, who was one of the artists featured on our Birthday EP , First Ear – First Year, recently dropped his latest track, a remix of Ayla Nereo _ Eastern Sun. The smooth chilled future vibe on thie one makes it suchh an addictive listen, so it’s no surprise that it has racked up almost 15,000 plays in 10 days.
Tom Misch has applied his funky touch to Busta Rhymes ft Q-Tip – ill vibe, his playful style of production makes you want to play the song over and over. If you aren’t rapping along to Busta’s “Yo x 25″ intro by your second play of this song then there’s something wrong with you yo!
EK, Hip Hop artist and Songwriter from Boston, is back with an ethereal love track “Faith” as part of his bi-weekly free track series in anticipation of his EP “Hands Of Time” dropping this Fall!
With the help of a beautiful backdrop provided by Bueffard Mallary, “Faith” becomes a musical reenactment of a romantic relationship. That initial mind-blowing experience of connecting with somebody. And then getting past the honeymoon phase and having to deal with the real life relationship issues.
EK comments “The reality of love is it isn’t easy to fall in love but it’s easier to fall out but all in all love is love. And we ALL need to feel it”. Amen. Feel the love and grab the free download here!
Canadian duo Majid Jordan recently released their “A Place Like This” EP this month and it’s truly wonderful. A 5-track EP it is filled with atmospheric soundscapes, intricate drums & percussion, catchy melodies, and to sew it all together haunting vocals that makes the whole experience perfect. This is an EP that can be put on for chill days but in my opinion is best suited for vibes that must be shared intimately in the bedroom. You can go ahead and buy the EP off of Itunes now for £2.99 right here and trust me it’s worth the cost.
