Grover Stewart – I’ve Grown: Soulfully Lucid Deep House

If you’re looking for cathartically enamouring music which offers plenty of soul, the last place you’d think to look is the Deep House genre. But Grover Stewart’s debut track “I’ve Grown” which was made in collaboration with Andrew Stephen is a captivating soundscape of nostalgically-inclined groove bedded into a danceable modern mix.

It’s fairly perceptible through listening to the smooth jazzy single that Grover Stewart has been sitting on their talent for far too long. Their ability to orchestrate music which appeals to your rhythmic pulses at the same time as offering authentically sincere resonant expression definitely isn’t something which you hear every day.

It’s going to be incredibly exciting to see how Grover Stewart follows on from I’ve Grown.

Nikki Sounds has given the evolution of R&B a dark twist with her latest single “Backwards”

Up and coming R&B Soul artist and producer Nikki Sounds may have just released the darkest feat of R&B we’ve ever heard with her latest single “Backwards”.

Usually, you can expect drippings of lovelorn regret from R&B, but Backwards contains a brand-new empowering melancholic twist which we’re certainly not going to forget in a hurry. Nikki Sounds’ unapologetically unfiltered raw lyrics carry plenty of weight, which is amplified by her succinctly captivating R&B-influenced moody Alt Pop vocals.

It’s impossible not to feel the resonance behind Backwards, the poignantly scathing lyrics perfectly encapsulate the frustrative feelings which stem from being hesitant to move forward – we’ve all been there.

Midxnite releases their smooth candid R&B slow jam “Emotionless”  

“Emotionless” is the latest single from up and coming R&B Soul Pop artist Midxnite. It has already racked up a significant number of streams since it dropped at the end of September, and there’s little room to wonder why.

With their contemporary approach to R&B Soul, Midxnite has cooked up a track which doesn’t just carry appeal to music fans of a particular leaning. Universally-appealing rhythms run right through the captivatingly ironic single.

Men are frequently branded as emotionless beings, as it happens, that’s exactly what the single was inspired by. Emotionless is unequivocal proof that Midxnite definitely isn’t dead inside, and my heartstrings took a yanking listening to the smooth, candid slow jam as their introspection ran through that allegation.

DOUG C JR – This, Babe: Silky Smooth RnB

In 2017, up and coming R&B Soul artist DOUG C JR made their debut with the silky smooth single “This, Babe”. Despite the ambience of the soundscape, This, Babe hits incredibly hard through the melodiously ethereal instrumentals which create the perfect platform for DOUG C JR’s naturally magnetic vocals.

Each syllable offered by the lovelorn lyrics resonates with conviction, and it’s practically impossible not to succumb to the potent servings of soul as DOUG C JR switches their vocals up from baritone reverberance to harmonic highs.

In all honesty, it’s R&B music which I hit play on with the most apprehension because so frequently it unfolds as assimilation of exactly what has come before. But with DOUG C JR’s authentic and original offering of unadulterated Soul, there’s no doubt that there’s a space for his sound on the airwaves.

It would be an aural crime not to see another release from DOUG C JR in the near future.

London-based R&B Soul Artist dilush Makes Their Debut with “waves”

Alt R&B artist dilush has recently made their debut with the lucidly ambient single “waves”. As soon as you hit play, you’ll see why that was an apt title for the track which unravels with magnetic amount of catharsis.

The London-based artist may be fresh from inception, but waves would never let you believe that. The softly succinct harmonic R&B Soul vocals sit in perfect synergy with the hazy colourful soundscape which constantly evolves throughout the duration.

While there may be a fair few wavy R&B Trap style singles on the airwaves already, dilush is able to offer a resounding amount of soul which definitely isn’t dampened by the reverb which is poured into this sticky-sweet mix.

RØSE- REFLECTIØN: Lucidly Lovelorn R&B Soul


“REFLECTIØN” is the aptly named latest single from up and coming R&B Soul artist RØSE. If you’re looking for transiently lucid, contemporarily captivating feats of downtempo R&B, look no further.

While there may be plenty of lovelorn R&B singles on the airwaves already, there are very few which can contend with the pensive emotivity of RØSE’s latest single. The softly-versed lyrics serve as a stark reminder that music and poetry aren’t all too different from one another, and RØSE left plenty of reverb-laden space between the lyrics to let the melancholy resonate.

REFLECTIØN is a truly stunning single, and it’s going to be incredibly exciting to hear what the artist puts out next.

You’ll have to wait a little longer before you can check out the mesmeric single from RØSE, in the meantime, you can head on over to Facebook and keep up to date with the latest news on the upcoming release.

Taura – Lucky Girls: Melodiously Smooth Neo-Soul R&B

“Lucky Girls” is the second single released by the up and coming Neo-Soul Pop artist Taura’s debut EP. The London-based singer-songwriter’s sound may be heavy influenced by soulfully archaic soundscapes, but the attitude which Taura brings to the airwaves is unapologetically modern.

There’s a resonance behind Lucky Girls which sinks its teeth in through the ambience offered by the Jazz-style piano which accompanies the soft and melodic R&B Hip Hop Pop beats. And once you hit play, you won’t need any of my flowery words to remind you of the concordance which Taura is able to offer vocally. Not all voices are made to sit so synergistically against a melody, but Taura’s perceptively is.

“Razor Blade” is the latest up-vibe track released by up and coming R&B & Soul artist Jamie Light who has successfully brought R&B well and truly into the 21st century with their contemporary, glitchy EDM stylistic take on the genre.

Jamie Light’s latest single also finds plenty of space to weave Reggae into the soulful slow jam. It’s a rare aural experience to hear such organic sun-soaked rhythms to such a modern and genre-bending take on R&B.

Razor Blade also has plenty to offer lyrically, right from the first verse, your interest is piqued by the uniquely expressive lines which are versed through Jamie Light’s naturally melodic vocals.

Lilly Bedard – Gravitational Pull: Accordantly Soul-Drenched Pop

Up and coming Florida-based artist Lily Bedard has made her debut with the stunning 3-track EP “Personally,”. While each of the singles is as mellifluously arrestive as the last, the perfect introduction to Lily Bedard’s accordantly soul-drenched Pop sound is undoubtedly “Gravitational Pull”.

Even though there was plenty of melancholy in the vocals and lyrics in Gravitational Pull, the piano melody still rang with a sweetly tempting offer of playfulness and warmth. The tentative pacing of Gravitational Pull means that’s exactly what the soundscape has over you as you listen to Lily Bedard’s succinct harmonies weaving the poignantly candid introspection which is found in the lyrics.

You can check out Gravitational Pull along with the rest of the EP for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now.

Alan Dreezer releases their latest artfully evocative single “What You Didn’t Say”

“What You Didn’t Say” is the artfully evocative latest single from singer-songwriter Alan Dreezer who definitely wasn’t shy about pouring a little soul into their R&B Acoustic Pop soundscape.

There’s a slightly vintage appeal to What You Didn’t Say which will throw you right back to the power of Pop in the 80s, yet, instead of listening to polyphonic synths, you get a rich, warm, and dexterous ethereal backing complete with celestially pulled strings. Additionally, nothing about What You Didn’t Say felt like assimilation, instead, it registered as a genuine offering of undiluted passion. The cathartic aural wonderment found in the instrumental arrangement was only matched by what is on offer from Alan Dreezer’s natural, deep, unflinching vocals.

What You Didn’t Say is available to check out via Alan Dreezer’s official website
