Alt R&B Hip Hop Artist David Diaz Releases their Atmospherically Apologetic 2nd Single “Sinner”

“Sinner” is the second track to be released by the up and coming Alt Hip Hop R&B artist David Diaz who has brought the urban sound into a spacy new realm of dreamy reverb which is all too tempting to get lost within. Yet, the solidity of the Trap beat will be your rhythmic guide in this downtempo romantically steeped single, the beats also create the perfect synergetic platform for David Diaz’s smoothly sonorous R&B vocals.

There’s stark imagery to be found within the lyrics of Sinner, along with a potent serving of pious apology, but ultimately, it is the humility in the candid nature of the lyricism which will strike the most emotive chord.

Prmise – L.W.Y.D: A Resonant Mix of R&B Soul

“L.W.Y.D” (Look What You’ve Done) is the incredibly bitter-sweet track from up and coming R&B Soul artist Prmise who left the pensive passion which inspired this track undiluted creating an offering of raw aural resonance.

No holds were barred as the lyrics served as a siren call to the lack of responsibility people take in relationships when they’ve been toxic, it’s all good to believe in karma, but this expressive mix aptly alludes to the frustration which can follow a mind-mashing relationship.

Even through the harmonized vocals and melodic pacing of the contemporary R&B beats which have been polished to a radio-ready standard, the emotivity is still striking.

The El Paso, US-based artist perceptibly not only has a voice that deserves recognition but finding an artist who throws that much of themselves into a single is like finding a needle in a haystack.

“In Love” is the debut single from up and coming US-based R&B Soul artist Noah Utz, which doesn’t just have the capacity to summon fuzzy feelings for your own endeavours in love, but you’ll also find plenty for the soundscape itself. And considering that In Love is an incredibly endearing track, it isn’t all too hard to become enamoured with the simple, playful, polyphonic beats which create the perfect platform for Noah Utz’s charismatically soulful vocal delivery.

Instrumentally, In Love may be a fairly simplistic track, but that doesn’t take away from the visceral and vibrant connection which this track offers as it unfolds.

Midtown Social – Fantastic Colors: Melodiously Momentous R&B Soul

If you haven’t jumped on Midtown Social’s soulfully rhythmic hype yet, now is the perfect time after the release of their melodious latest single “Fantastic Colors”.

Fantastic Colors kicks off with reverberant bass rumbles before seamlessly progressing into a mix of experimental R&B Soul which drips in reverb as the instrumentals carve out synergetic yet contrasting tonality. Then you’ll also be able to expect ethereal orchestral layers to creep in around Blues Rock guitars which lay out searing riffs as the rest of the arrangement prepares to flood you with vibrant energy once more. With the male and female vocals, there’s a palpable amount of chemistry in Fantastic Colours. The momentum behind the single may ebb and flow, yet the intrinsic connection which you’re compelled to make to the single never falters.

R&B Soul Pop artist Precious makes her debut with single “Don’t Ever Wanna”

Up and coming R&B Hip Hop Pop artist Precious has recently made her debut with the strikingly nostalgic single “Don’t Ever Wanna” which will throw you right back to the 90s where vocal harmonies over reverb-laden synths in R&B Hip Hop were King – or should that be Queen?

Naturally, Don’t Ever Wanna is an accessible hit, in which Precious didn’t fail to stamp down her signature melodically gentle style, but as much as I loved the slightly vintage appeal of Don’t Ever Wanna which was paired with a fair enough serving of contemporary visceral connection, it was easy to feel that the lyrics and the harmonies were fairly sporadic and lacked discernible structure. But with that in mind, Don’t Ever Wanna still remains an easy to slip into cathartic mix, and we can’t wait to hear what Precious puts out next.

TODDIE – Be Mine: A Romantic R&B-Infused Trap Ballad

Up and coming R&B Soul Trap artist TODDIE kicked off their latest track with an experimentally teasing prelude which doesn’t immediately reveal the sticky sweet soulful appeal of “Be Mine”. But when the chorus is in full flow, you’ll definitely get to appreciate TODDIE’s smooth vocals through the crooning Hip Hop bars which have been paired with vibrant, energetic and colourful beats.

Perhaps one of the most striking parts of TODDIE’s prodigally mastered single is the lyrics. It’s incredibly rare to hear such candid lyrics in an R&B track, usually, you’ll just get the same old tired sentiment, yet TODDIE versed through palpable passion making Be Mine feel incredibly authentic, and kudos have to go to producer Trapsolo for giving the track a seamless radio-ready feel.

Honey Made serve up sweet soulful nostalgia with their latest single “Perfect Getaway”

“Perfect Getaway” is the latest Funk driven single from the Austin, Texas-based artist Honey Made which contains enough Soul to induce goosebumps from the first few notes in the prelude.

As the drippings of soul nostalgia intensify in Perfect Getaway, you’ll find yourself in an effervescently shimmering soundscape where every instrumental in the arrangement exudes fluid expression.

In the jazzy downtempo instrumental arrangements, you’ll find plenty of catharsis as the Perfect Getaway makes a gentle demand to let the sound resonate while in the choruses, you’ll appreciate the explosive energy from the unrestrained vocals and the cutting angular guitar progressions.

Perfect Getaway is as accessible as Funk gets thanks to the even serving of anachronistic and contemporary textures found in the single. Honey Made is well and truly an artist putting on your radar.

Matt Brown releases yet another mellifluously captivating R&B EDM Pop single with “Good Morning”

It isn’t all too often that we’ll find any substantial amount of distinction in R&B EDM Pop, yet up and coming artist Matt Brown’s latest single “Good Morning” proved to be a deeply compelling single packed with delicate intricacies and juxtapositions.

The EDM beats provide a steady downtempo rhythm and offer a slightly sterile bassy tone – the same tone which is all too prevalent in EDM instrumental mixes. While they may not feed much emotion into Good Morning, they do serve as a perfect for Matt Brown’s contrastingly sweet Neo-Soul vocals which spill harmony and sticky sweet arrestive resonance over Good Morning.
