Daron Vande – Waste Time: Sun-Soaked Afro Beats

“Waste Time” may not be great advice, but it is the sensational standout single from up and coming World Music artist Daron Vande.

The high-vibe track offers Afro-Beats with sun-soaked Reggae rhythm with one of the smoothest flows we’ve heard in a long time. The Brooklyn-based artist notably excelled in creating an arrestive mid-tempo single with plenty of melodic hooks.

The radio-ready mix is immersive from the first hit. Which is why so many Afro-Beat fans didn’t hesitate in playlisting this vibrant, polished soundscape which comes with plenty of sunny escapism. Waste Time is a track which stays true to its roots, but that’s not to say it doesn’t drip with commercial potential.

Two World Creatives – That Love: Vibrantly Progressive Alt Pop

Two World Creatives made their debut in 2019 with the mind-expanding EP “Wait”. Each of the singles offers their own brand of mesmerism, but “That Love” is the perfect introduction to their eclectically vibrant style.

The track kicks off with a sermon on perfect love’s ability to cast out fear. Then, you’re led into a Reggae-soaked Electronica mix complete with soulful yet moody vocals and an eclectic smorgasbord of other elements. I almost don’t want to ruin the transcendental experience of allowing the melodies to aurally transport you to a sunny new plateau.

That Love is a deeply beguiling hit which may not instantly reveal what kind of soundscape you’re being rhythmically led into. But each progression will generously reward your curiosity.

You can check out That Love along with the rest of the album by Two World Creatives via Spotify.

Elementree Livity Project offer sticky-sweet good vibes with their single “I Wanna Be Loved”  

Rock meets Reggae in Elementree Livity Project’s standout single “I Wanna Be Loved” from their second album “High Def”. I’m fairly sure Blues Rock riffs have never sounded sweeter than the serene licks which you’re treated to around the sun-soaked Reggae rhythms.

Right from the first notes, you’re invited to bask in the shimmering tonality of the single. Yet, the real enamouring appeal lies in the soul which pours in from the lyrics and vocals. The chorus catches from the first hit, as do the potent positive vibes which made it all too easy to surrender to the fluidity of the sweetly carved melodies which have massive earworm potential.

Tsun Dog – I Don’t Mind: Psychedelic Reggae Blues

In Tsun Dog’s standout single “I Don’t Mind”, Reggae, Indie, Blues and Rock n Roll all come together in a sublimely rhythmic feat of sun-soaked euphoric alchemy. There’s even plenty of psychedelic touches around the riffs which may as well have been carved by Hendrix.

The six-piece powerhouse has set themselves as a pioneering act with I Don’t Mind. If you could imagine what the Strokes would sound like if they dabbled with Reggae, you’d get a good idea of what they’ve cooked up. It’s infectiously rapturous and instantaneously effective in sharing the mellow good vibes which have been conjured organically. That’s all without mentioning the effortlessly charismatic nuanced Indie Blues vocals.

Milani Valentine Releases Her Second Sun-Kissed Single Good Vibes Only

Up and coming Hip Hop artist Milani Valentine has recently dropped her second Reggae R&B Hip Hop single “Good Vibes Only”.

The grips of winter are almost upon us, but sun-kissed reggae-soaked Hip Hop is never out of season. Good Vibes Only is a high vibe track which contains plenty of vibrant rhythm and does exactly what it says on the tin. But through the slightly rough production quality which created a slightly tinny polyphonic sound and the lack of depth in the lyrics, it was hard to let those vibes resonate effectively.

With that said, feel-good music which serves to bring people together under the tune of euphoria is absolutely essential. With the right production and inspiring lyricism which pours out from the soul, Milani Valentine would be unstoppable.
