Lo-Ke drops “Henny Nights”

Born in London, raised in France, and schooled in the USA, bi-national musician/rapper/producer Lo-Ke brings the summertime party with this upbeat-but-low-key (pun very much intended) electronic/reggaeton crossover track with producer Shadow Kyd.

Upfront hip-hop vocals meet Latin bachata-style rhythms, sparkling keys, and chilled out, Daddy Yankee-style 125 BPM.

It swings, in a dembow kind of way, under Lo-Ke’s tale of hot summer nights, Hennessy, missed flights, and waking up ‘with a cute girl on my right’, perfectly capturing those living for the moment, fairy-lighted steamy dancehall nights and hot, Latin, grooves.

You can check out Henny Nights via SoundCloud.

Quay Rashad has dropped their rhythmically entrancing Dancehall single “My Baby” featuring AU Music

For their debut single “My Baby”, Quay Rashad borrowed the talent of AU Music and the influence of a myriad of different genres. Each stylistic genre-infusion into the Dancehall mix served to amp up the euphoria while keeping the tempo smooth and undemanding yet soulfully compelling. Hit play and you’ll find elements of Afro Beat, Reggaeton and Hip Hop under a hazily comforting production.

I absolutely adore the eclecticism to Quay Rashad’s high-vibe entrancingly rhythmic sound. There’s a true sense that the breaking artist just let their soul flow right into the soundscape and it didn’t struggle to lead the way. It’s no surprise that there’s already plenty of hype around the release. Get him on your radar.

Noiz Kelley – N. Y. L.: Soulfully Elevating Hip Hop

Up and coming Washington-based Hip Hop artist and producer Noiz Kelley’s latest single “N. Y. L.” drips pure vibrant soul. Each progression is as dynamic as the last and will leave you even more enamoured by the artist’s effervescently energetic approach to songwriting.

It’s got all transcendent soul which you’d expect from Gospel music. Yet, the lyrics have been kept light, uplifting, and universally resonant so that even the staunchest of atheists will be inspired by Noiz Kelley.

Noiz Kelley is to Hip Hop what Hozier is to Rock n Roll. Their eccentrically playful approach to their sound which keeps the instrumentals organic and the vocal passion striking will undoubtedly see them make plenty of waves in 2020 and beyond.

Vilaire Manuel Unleashes a Sun-Soaked Reggaeton Hit with Latest Single “Mi Amor”

Summer may be almost over, yet there’s still plenty of time to appreciate the sun-soaked Reggaeton hit “Mi Amor” from up and coming Philadelphia-based artist Vilaire Manuel who teamed up with an exceptionally talented female vocalist to bring a vibrantly amorous dynamic to the track.

With Vilaire Manuel’s latest anthemic offering of Reggae soaked R&B Pop, you can expect to hear transfixing vibrant Latin rhythms which wrap around the EDM elements making Mi Amor an incredibly high-energy danceable track.

Yet the intricacies in the multi-layered beats allows Mi Amor to resonate with plenty of distinction from your average Reggaeton beats and the inclusion of harmonic female vocals into Mi Amor spills plenty of potent chemistry as the romantically high-vibe track unfolds.
