AP Project – Hi. Ro. Mi.: Modern Jazz Fusion at its Finest.

Jazz has never been the most accessible of genres. Yet, with the magnetic pull of the fluidly explorative soundscape which is AP Project’s latest single “Hi. Ro. Mi”, that issue may become a thing of the past.

The Jazz Fusion single abstracts elements from Hip Hop, Blues, and RnB before infusing them into a work of dizzying distinction.

With Hi. Ro. Mi., you not only get the perfect introduction to AP Project’s deft instrumental mastery. But you also get to experience the mesmerism of surrendering yourself to a rhythm without knowing which way or how fast you’ll be pulled along. The refusal of the Modern Jazz Fusion artist to leave any amount of predictability between the notes is most felt when the soundscape surges into jaw-droppingly intricate piano melodies which carry the perfect dose of Jim Jones-style frenetic energy.

Seb.T – Notion: Melodiously Gritty Jazz-Infused Hip Hop

“Notion” is just one of the sultry smooth urban drops from up and coming Birmingham, UK-based Hip Hop artist Seb.T’s upcoming EP “Disconnect”.

Seb.T’s catchy contemporary approach to Jazz-Fusion breathes brand-new resonant life and soulful grind into the genre. With the grimy bars alluding to a non-polished picture of 21st-century living, and the gravelly drawl to Seb.T’s vocals, there’s no disputing that Notion is a dynamically distinctive hit. There are very few Rap artists with the ability to put this much magnetic conviction behind such a melodious beat. And the sweet sentimentality of the track definitely didn’t fail to resonate thanks to the addition of the female harmonic vocals on the chorus.

You’ll have to wait a little longer to check out Notion along with the rest of Seb.T’s upcoming EP which is due for release on December 5th. In the meantime, you can head on over to Spotify and check out their previously released gritty urban delights.

Vince Villafan – Easy: Prodigally Restorative Dream Pop

Vince Villafan released his latest work of cathartic aural alchemy “Easy” on September 17th. If you appreciate silvery euphonic soundscapes you might as well start preparing your playlists for the downtempo hit.

There was no forgetting the up and coming artist after the release of his earlier released single “Don’t Remind Me”, but it’s safe to say that in the short time between the two releases, Vince Villafan has found a way to instil even more mesmerism into his sound

Through a mix of Psychedelic Dream Pop, Indie, and sweetly sensuous Jazz, Easy unfolds as a prodigally restorative mix. Faith No More’s single Easy is practically anthemic in comparison to Vince Villafan’s accordantly arrestive new release. That may sound like ridiculously high praise, but once you hit play, you’ll see that the adoration is more than justified.

Hannah Lorimer – Rewind: Alchemically Cathartic Neo-Sou

Sublimely smooth servings of Neo-Soul will never go out of style. Especially not ones as alchemically cathartic as the latest single “Rewind” from up and coming artist Hannah Lorimer.

Any fans of Norah Jones, Corrine Bailey Rae, and Etta James are definitely going to want to turn their attention to the song which pulled so much inspiration from these artists. Yet, Rewind doesn’t solely rely on assimilating what already lingers on the airwaves.

Hannah Lorimer’s distinctively contemporary approach to Neo-Soul incorporates transfixing elements of Jazz, giving Rewind a sense of free-flowing rhythm, which is all too tempting to be pulled along with as the track unfolds. It’s intricate, it’s captivating, and your playlists will thank you for welcoming the soulful resonance of Rewind onto them.

Francesca Mondi Releases her Latest Artfully Jazz-Infused Single “In a Man’s Arms”

“In a Man’s Arms” is the latest archaically inclined arrestive single from up and coming Jazz Fusion Pop artist Francesca Mondi. Of course, there was no forgetting her ethereally enamouring voice after we checked out her 2017 Jazz Fusion hit “Devil’s Door”.

But in the time between the releases, the London-based songstress has found even more alchemic ways to infuse nostalgic sounds into contemporary soundscapes which can be defined by their mellifluous harmonies and cathartic rhythms.

Put it this way, if the new Bond film is looking for a sensual jazzy track for the soundtrack, they wouldn’t go far wrong with Francesca Mondi’s stunning contribution to the airwaves.
