Woz // Cherry Hill

Now, here’s a cracker of track. ‘Cherry Hill’ is an awesome house banger that really brings back the origins of the movement.

Woz came to most people’s attention with his remix of Rudimental’s ‘Feel The Love’ featuring Childish Gambino last year and has now released ‘Cherry Hill’, the title track from his forthcoming EP.

Featuring sexy Detroit house beats, awesome percussion and a bassline that is quickly becoming synonymous with his style ‘Cherry Hill’ is the perfect example of a newcomer to the scene harnessing sounds that made house so popular, and making them their own. And the video is pretty throwback as well – think MTV when it was still playing music videos. Check it out:

Espa // Apartment 2f visual

In a time when lyric videos are rife to extend exposure before a track’s release, Espa has brought us something refreshing.

We blogged this track a few weeks ago, and now Espa has released a GIF video, which is as mesmerising as the track, pulling you in as her head, painted as the Universe spins before you.

Espa has got an incredible imagination, and wants to team this with her tracks, whilst not drawing away from their realness and was inspired by a book of Rankin portraits for this piece.

Taken from upcoming EP, ‘150th and Broadway’, ‘Apartment 2f’ is a lovely haunting track, which now has a little further element added to it, with this vibrant and hypnotising video.

BO-SARIS-LITTLE-BIT-MORE

Bodhi/Bo Saris.

Boris Titulaer, currently better known as Bo Saris, is a soul singer-songwriter from the Netherlands. Following a series of successful albums over there, Bo moved to London to start afresh via a meeting with elusive superstar Bill Withers, after he was noticed at a tribute show in Amsterdam. His success started in 2012 peaking dramatically in Dutch charts, and he continued to catch the attention of artists such as Chase and Status and Maya Jane Coles for vocals and remixes. Fans of Amy Winehouse, Jamie Lidell and Cee-Lo will love him. Bodhi have always been one of my favourite producing team, and they have remixed one of Bo’s tracks called ‘Little Bit More’. I worship anything those guys do, and this is no different. They have slowed it down, given it a slow and deep jazzy beat and a funky slap bassline. What more could you want from a dreamy remix? Or, dreamix? Yeah. I went there. Check this out, you won’t be disappointed.

Kojey Radical – The Garden Party [Official Music Video]

Kojey Radical dropped a visual for us from his incredible new EP, Dear Daisy: Opium.

The young Londoner is innovative (to say the least) in the way in which he combines spoken word with hip-hop. I was lucky enough to be in attendance for his EP launch last month at Birthdays, Dalston- and it is needless to say that Kojey Radical is an artist who has shown his determination to push boundaries.

‘The Garden Party’ produced by Jay Prince – an incredible collaborator of Kojey’s, and one of the supporting acts at the EP launch- is combined with visuals from Radical himself and award-winning art collective, The Rest. We see the story-teller moving through nature-filled landscape in a straw hat, whilst reciting a mesmerising boy-meets-girl tale; posing a twist on a Marxist philosophy and testifying that ‘love is the opium of the people.’ The cleverly-shot visual combines text with moving images and a visual representation of the named opium; at times it’s hard not to feel somewhat hypnotized by this paired along with his powerful delivery.

On Preacher Preacher (a personal favourite of mine) he samples the dulcet tones of the Fugees and takes us through a narrative of raw Sunday memories of his childhood in delivered like a sermon at mass.

If you haven’t heard the EP, all that’s left is for me to urge to you take a listen. Kojey Radical is a wordsmith; he executes a perfect balance of philosophy, poetry, hip-hop and neo-soul. It’s not an easy listen- intellectually extraordinary, but the journey continues through his infatuation with Daisy.
