Hatty Keane – Big soul groove at ‘Club 69’

‘This one goes out to the Fashionistas’….and oh, yes. It most certainly does. With a gloriously old-school drum machine pattern and the most sublime disco-soul groove, ‘Club 69’ instantly transports you back to the height of the 1970’s dance era. Think big hairstyles, big beats, and a big, mirror-ball lit dancefloor; Donna Summer, Anita Ward, Thelma Houston, and Gloria Gaynor are all here in spades. Funky wah-wah guitar, retro-as-anything synth strings, and a bass that literally forces you to dance, Keane really has hit every note – both vocally and metaphorically – absolutely perfectly. There is some serious soul power in her voice, and for sure the track is artfully arranged and put together, but overall – and most importantly – this is one seriously fun record. Get up, get down, and get to ‘Club 69’.

Check out ‘Club 69’ on Spotify; follow Hatty Keane on Facebook and Instagram.

Linden Tyson brings the ‘ENERGY’ with his latest boom-bap track.

Fiery trap, 90s RnB, boom-bap, and jazz hip hop pull together as the cornerstones in Linden Tyson’s latest single, ‘ENERGY’. The New York-hailing artist brought that definitive NYC sound into the mix and plenty of his honesty through the lyrics that allow you to prize inspiration from Tyson’s hard-fought-for introspection.

The sharp and playful bars groove along with the boom-bap beats that come with a touch of classic RnB in the keys. ENERGY is practically an aural orgy of urban 90s sounds that will bring plenty of nostalgia for 90s kids.

Since 2017, Linden Tyson has been making heads spin with his dizzying canter and soul-filling 808s as an independent artist; it is only a matter of time before he gets scouted by a major label. Watch this space.

Linden Tyson’s latest single, ENERGY, is now available to stream via Spotify.

Phase For You‘ from the splendidly honest Nashville, Tennessee indie solo RnB singer-songwriter Ysa, shows us a very talented woman who refuses to change for anybody. She sweeps us off our feet with a cheeky single, that is full of love and tells it how it is.

AK Diorr. takes us on a ride with his latest melodic hip hop single, ‘CHROME FORGIATOS’.

With so much hype around LA-based singer-songwriter AK Diorr., we dove into his latest single, CHROME FORGIATOS. The grooves in the light and ambient feat of melodically sun-bleached hip hop instantly affirmed how Diorr. has garnered so much acclaim since his debut single, ‘Eager’, dropped in 2020.

CHROME FORGIATOS may explore lavish excess, but the through his magnetism and the romanticism of the soundscape that breaks the monocultural mould, the track becomes so much more than just another series of status symbol boasts. You would struggle to find more soul in a contemporary hip hop track.

It’s easy to predict his trajectory to the top soaring in 2021 and beyond. Save a space for him on your radar.

CHROME FORGIATOS is now available to stream via Spotify.

Debrah Jade has released her funk-fuelled hyper-pop single, Nobody But You.

‘Nobody But You’ is the latest fierce feat of  hyperpop left on the airwaves by the breakthrough artist Debrah Jade. After racking up hundreds of thousands of streams since making her debut in 2018 with her single, ‘Drenched in Love’, Jade has stayed true to her signature funk-fuelled, disco-pop affectionate style that unapologetically reminds her listeners of their capacity to feel.

Hit play on Nobody But You, and you won’t just hear Jade’s optimistic disposition; you will be inclined to share it. We may have all collectively endured the most trying times in living history. But the presence of resoundingly visceral voices, such as Debrah Jade’s that remind you of the time when Houston and Turner were the reigning queens of pop, bring back a sense of normality.

Nobody But You is now available to stream via Spotify.

Dream About Me: Emerging Wisconsin singer Poet22 powers our hearts into a romantic flutter with her beautiful ‘Crush’ (feat. Shakko)

With her first much-anticipated full-length ten-track album ‘Chrysalis‘ on the way shortly, Poet22 teases us gently with her lead single that will have your mind in a romantic state called ‘Crush(feat. Shakko).

Kala Lones aka Poet22, is a Appleton, Wisconsin-based indie RnB/soul singer-songwriter/poet. Since she was very young, Poet22 has always dreamed deeply and visualized calmly about being a successful singer, who tours the world and performs with such joy.

”It was important for me to be as honest and as vulnerable as possible with this project. I have been so blessed to work with other young Black independent artists like myself, who do what they love and love what they do.” – Poet22

She sings gloriously with such a stunning tone, each word seems so glowing and somehow effortless like she is performing right from the core of her beating heart. This is the cute story about that real feeling inside that you can’t easily explain but just know — as you don’t care if they feel the same at first — but of course wish that they returned the love.

Crush‘ from Wisconsin-based singer-songwriter and multi-talented creative Poet22, has our beating hearts in a game of intense twister, as we feel the interwoven love bow of goodness from this wonderful artist. She gives us a dazzling single that hits all the right spots deep into your preciously designed soul — as you feel all giddy and smile cheekily to yourself — thinking of that person in your life that you care about so much, as they make your heart beat so fast like no other human can.
