“Pull Up” is a chilled-out track by a 27-year-old R&B artist, Samara, about two former lovers, including one who is already in the arms of another, that maintain a connection despite their separation. Would one call be enough to reunite them? If they’re on each other’s minds, like the song suggests, then it’d certainly seem to be a matter of time before such an eventuality comes to pass.
Knowing a person, inside and out, is something that can be either taken for granted or appreciated in a loving, long-term relationship.
In this song, Samara seductively talks about desire, through thoughts and feelings that are real for one party and observed as fact about the other, that live on even though they weren’t enough to keep their relationship from imploding in the first place.
Once you’ve tasted someone’s flesh, can you ever get over the temptation to return?

One month after the initial release of DreamTaun, the fresh new single from Ekaterine Music and we’re still revelling in the absolute masterpiece of this sonorous sound. With its wholesome hints of Country, Americana, Electro-Pop, Funk and Ska DreamTaun has the momentum of a thousand wild horses.
The track progresses with Ska tones reverberating from the guitar with transient slips of melody from the verse to the chorus. The track has an angelic aura about it twined with the exuberance of one of the most confident women that you’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to expressing herself in a midst of raucous energy. The sound dominates its sweet euphoric vibe. The vocals are as clear as glass fracturing into a thousand pieces through the rhythm of this track. Ekaterine Music is the new musical venture from visionary Moscow born singer song writer Ekartine Goglidze whose music soon caught the attention of the BBC. In 2016, she was invited to perform her original material in the live sessions. She’s a woman of astounding grace and stunning talent.
Check out her new single DreamTaun on the SoundCloud link below:
Make sure you also check out her website & social media, once you get a taste of her sound, you’re going to want to get acquainted with her.
U.N.I.T.Y. have just dropped their brand-new EP ‘Living Inside My Head’ and it’s everything that you could possibly want from a collective of young urban artists form North Carolina. Their music is packed with upbeat energetic layers that flow seamlessly through the arrangements of talent put behind the sound.
The Hip Hop rapping wrapped around old school analogue beats is enough to make a girl feel nostalgic. I was moved by the infused message of hope, faith and positivity in their music. It’s so rare to get such a great vibe while listening to a track.
Their music is heavily influenced by all kinds of music legends, from James Brown to Bob Marley, and even Beyonce. I don’t think many male artists will be quite as brash to admit to being influenced by Beyonce, but that makes them legends in my eyes as well as my ears. The inventive use of genres creates a sound that all music lovers can enjoy. There’s R&B, rock, Hip Hop, electronica and soul all put behind one resonant sound.
In the tragic times we’re facing, we need more bands like U.N.I.T.Y to spread a little love, even their astounding artwork gives a nod to their playful sense of humour when it comes to confronting contemporary issues such as Donald Trump’s presidency, the BLM movement to religion.

NYC-based recording artist, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Ben Alessi, follows his refreshing debut track (“ U ”) with a sultry, electronic dysfunctional-love love song, “ ONLY ”. There’s a magical balance here between what is now a landmark sound for Ben – his layered vocal performance/production woven into the foundational instrumental. Although usually self-produced, Ben was enamored by the emotional instrumental for “Only” created by REO (Beyonce, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Kid Ink, David Guetta, T-Pain) and so “ONLY” was borne. “U” served as an introduction to Ben’s unique way of envisioning music through color and texture while “Only” seems to let his audience dive right into his soul.
At just 21 years old, Ben Alessi is already leapfrogging through the biz: “U” premiered on Billboard and was remixed by both Michael Brun (3MM Spotify plays and climbing) and Chordashian ; his successful featurings include a Kuren debut release “ Home ” that climbed the Australian charts and national radio; he’s produced/featured on several other viral climbers; he’s collaborating with major music-makers – most recently, Sarz; and, he’s being courted by brands, fashion houses and has landed syncs including T-Mobile. His debut EP is set to drop soon, and several showcases are lined up for March and April.
Since his first self-release, “Primes,” Ben Alessi gained local traction, performing mostly acoustic in his hometown of Buffalo, NY. Ben relocated to Manhattan upon signing with Big House Publishing and dove deeper into electronica. His inspirations, ranging from Cashmere Cat and Jean Paul Gaultier to Amy Winehouse and Tarantino, are present in his art through the essence of these cultural icons. The dark, complicated majesty of these heroes is embedded in the textured, subtle beauty of this latest release.
