Keisha – Took Advantage: Unapologetically Fierce R&B Soul

Whilst many R&B Soul tracks could be accused of sounding a little dated, with her latest track “Took Advantage” up and coming recording artist Keisha made sure that her single was as fresh as it was unapologetically fierce.

Not only do her rich biting vocals dominate the single, but the lyrics behind Took Advantage transcend that of your usual wistfully rendered R&B track by serving up pure empowerment. The beat came alive through R&B roots, yet, the EDM mix proved to be more than worthy to find itself on your contemporary urban playlists. With such a smooth finish to the mix, there’s no better introduction to Keisha’s pitch-perfect style. It’s clear from her earlier tracks that in the short time between the releases her style has matured and evolved and matured exponentially.

Laya Laya – Both: R&B With a Soulful EDM Twist

Laya Laya’s latest single ‘Both’ released September 24th is an arresting combination of EDM, Soul and R&B. Around the sonorous emotion which is layered throughout the single are stomach-churningly sweet EDM progressions which prove that the London based artist has found their signature unique sound in the compelling rhythm and melody.

The multi-layer beat has an irrefutable amount of intricacy through the mix of electronic and acoustic effect, yet the complexity in the rhythm doesn’t offset the cathartic vibe of the track.

Beyond the beat, the resonance of the lyricism will have you sharing in the same pained frustration as vocalist and songwriter Freya instilled into Both which addressed ambivalence. We’ve all been there, simultaneously loving and hating someone at the same time. Now, we have a stylish hit to bask in the plaintive emotion to which boasts a radio-ready quality thanks to Metropolis Studios London.

Cre Riggins – Better Days: A Debut of Soulful Groove

Better Days is the first single released from R&B Soul singer Cre Riggins’ EP ‘In Remission’, and it may very well be the most perfect balance of soul and groove I’ve ever slipped into.

There was a tad too much reverb added to the vocals in parts which impeded Cre Riggins’ raw vocal style from shining through Yet, Better Days is still a stellar track which won’t fail you to leave you in a blissful state of resonance as you drink in the soulfully inspired lyrics and melodically cathartic progression of the instrumentals. The use of acoustic instruments alongside digital effects gave Better Days an authentically accessible sound right from the off-beat guitar intro which pops right the way through the progression around the rattle and snares of the 808 beats.
