Shojon has released their salaciously smooth RnB Pop single ‘Theorem’

A trappy R&B-styled mix of pop and soul, with some delicious sampled guitar lines and a salaciously smooth vocal from South London native Shojon – from his forthcoming project ‘Greenwich Views’ – is a sleek little mid-tempo track, polished and velvety with plenty to showcase Shojon’s chilled flow and urban, emo-rap style.

Shojon’s already making waves in the South London scene, following collaborations with Lady Leshurr, Maxsta, and Nolay, a performance at the O2 Academy in Islington, and over 150k Spotify streams; now, with a concept video directed by Craig Heathcote – a man well-known for producing storytelling ‘real-life’ videos giving a voice to marginalised and LGBTQ+ communities in London. Shojon’s ‘Theorem’ takes a walk through part love-story, part mental health journey, the video itself showing a modern day cupid balancing the emotions of those he comes across on a Greenwich walk. Shojon currently works with the mental health charity Mind to raise awareness for mental health issues; ‘Theorem’ is a cracker of a track that should go a long way to doing that all by itself.

You can see the video for ‘Theorem’ on YouTube, and follow Shojon here or on Facebook.

Those romantic late nights: Price Dior sings with fresh energy on ‘Repeat’

Price Dior is back with a song so fresh, you will need to suit up in order to be allowed into streaming ‘Repeat‘.

R&B/Soul artist Price Dior is so impressive on this new single and this is a short and sweet track that grabs your attention and makes you groove along all night.

With a beat so hot you need sunglasses, the excellent vocals heats up your speakers and a cold shower is needed. You can’t help but click your fingers and like this a lot. This is the story about how his Mama told him to go and follow his dreams and make amazing music. He has taken that advice and is now driving in his lane to create a path to the top.

This is the kind of track that is perfect for those late nights when you have a lover over. His sensual voice is full of love and he heats up the temperature with sexy lyrics that shows his feelings for her.

Repeat‘ from the charming Price Dior features fantastic production from Kloudbeats and this is a new song to sink your teeth into and to turn up really loud.

Here is an artist with lots of self-confidence and a deep desire to succeed. If you want to be the best, you have to put in that extra effort and this seems to be a musician who wants it real bad.

Finding that closure: New York City singer-songwriter Javarr drops ‘The End’ visuals

The End‘ from Javarr is the true story about how dealing with closure can either keep you stuck into what happened, or whether you decide to accept the circumstances, and move on to a fresh start.

Brooklyn, New York singer-songwriter Javarr returns with his signature smooth style and is highly impressive here on this new single. His voice is vibrant and honest, he hits the high notes that so many can’t, while never overstretching or straining his vocals. The fantastic falsetto energy blows in hot and you find yourself swaying along and reminiscing about breakups and how they can either go well or badly.

”They say closure happens right after you accept that letting go is more important than protecting a fantasy of how the relationship/friendship could have been”.- Javarr

The visuals are so real and shows how the classy way to end things is so hard to do, but necessary. The pain is there but you both need to move on and start fresh after healing first.

Brooklyn’s Javarr sends us a message that needs to be heard on ‘The End‘. In life, being happy inside has to be number one and holding onto things, no matter how much you miss them, only sucks you down and does nothing to help you long-term.

See this new video on YouTube and see the journey on IG.

Millie Gibson serves smoky, jazzy soul in her debut single ‘Leon’

Amy Winehouse comparisons are easy to make, but there’s plenty more reasons to get excited about Millie Gibson’s striking vocal timbre in her debut single, ‘Leon’, than just reminiscences to a soul icon.

The smoky, jazzy serving of soul is as refined as contemporary RnB gets. Which is even more impressive given that the singer-songwriter and pianist achieved such maturity and nuance in her sound at the age of just 19-years-old.

Even with the state of socio-political uncertainty in the UK, on the basis of Leon, the future looks incredibly bright for Millie Gibson. There’s an unparalleled sense of sensitivity in her sound. You don’t need her bio to tell you that she strives to make the most purposeful music she is capable of. Just hit play.

You can check out Millie Gibson’s single Leon for yourselves by heading over to Spotify.

Angelique ‘Let Go’ the new single from her stunning album ‘Grows Back’

Louisiana-born singer-songwriter Angelique puts her classically-trained, three-octave range to great use on her new single ‘Let Go’, a sultry, sensual R&B number with a serious soulful groove and the clever use of heavily phased synth parts and staccato stop-starts to the bass highlighting the power and timbre of Angelique’s voice.

There’s some serious Toni Braxton, Aaliyah, or the much-lamented Whitney Houston vibes across the track, deep, soaring, overlapping vocals mixing with thumping bass and a trappy little drum pattern, choral backing vocals sitting perfectly underneath Angelique’s lead. ‘Let Go’ is the perfect showcase to Angelique’s new album ‘Grows Back’, a mix of chilled R&B and upbeat disco-influenced groove. The future looks extremely bright for Angelique.

Hear ‘Let Go’, and the rest of ‘Grows Back’, on Spotify. Follow Angelique on Facebook.

Jaonere ‘Redefine’s Soul with his banging new single.

Smooth, Motown-tinged R&B, contemporary yet with some serious retro soul vibes, ‘Redefine’ is the new single from Jaonere’s latest EP ‘All We Have Is Now’, and it’s really very, very good. Chilled, laid-back groove, intimate and thought-provoking lyrics, perhaps a smattering of jazzy Ghanaian Highlife influences in the rhythms, and a soft, soulful vocal, Jaonere delivers a stunning late-night soft, mellow track as a leader to the EP.

Janoere’s voice is creamy, fluid, and sleek, the lyrical content sensitive and contemplative, confessional almost. It’s a perfect blend of intimate and personal with modern, passionate and tender soul; it deserves a listen. And then another.

Hear ‘Redefine’ on Spotify; check on Jaonere here.
