TreWay and The Now Generation has made their sultrily playful Alt Jazz Funk debut with “Roll Play”

TreWay and The Now Generation have made their debut with the eccentric soul-southing single “Roll Play”. Good vibes don’t come much more infectious than the ones than you’ll find in this insanely progressive soundscape.

Soul, Jazz, Hip Hop and Funk all converge in the instantly enamouring track which definitely wasn’t orchestrated to beg for mainstream appeal. Instead, you’ll get to ingest the high-energy creativity of TreWay and The Now Generation.

Roll Play may be like nothing you’ve ever heard before and time signatures may have been thrown out of the window, but thanks to the soul which was thrown into the sultry playful mix, it’s all too easy to ease into the grooves.

With vocal reminiscences with everyone from Saul Williams to Pharrell to Kanye, it’s safe to say that TreWay has one of the most versatile vocal dynamics we’ve heard in a while. We can’t wait to hear what comes next.

Lee Rugless – Human Nature Zone: Soulful Funk to Fall in Love With

For an unadulterated serving of feel good Funk, look no further than Lee Rugless’ latest single “Human Nature Zone”. The level of stylishly soulful talent from Lee Rugless remains perceptible throughout the single.

Through his magnetically powerful vocals, his ability to construct a laid-back but viscerally euphoric soundscape and his overwhelming charisma, you’ll struggle to decide which aspect of Human Nature Zone you’ll want to fall in love with first.

Expect plenty of elements to be weaved together in a seamless mix through an eclectic arrangement of violin, cello, keyboard, saxophone and last but definitely not least; guitar. With jaw-droppingly intricately soaring riffs from an inexplicably gifted guitarist Human Nature Zone resonates as aural perfection.

With the infectious good-vibe feel to Human Nature Zone, there isn’t a state of existentialism deep enough that the track couldn’t pull you out from.

D’Z ft Freddi Lubitz – Conviction: The Soul Funk Track to Shape Up Your Summer Playlists

Conviction is an instrumentally sensual, and vocally resounding masterpiece of a track. Jazz fan or not, you can’t dispute that this track is packed full of poignantly orchestrated sound which is made even heavier by the sentimentality behind the track by D’Z ft Freddi Lubitz. D’Z’s New Orleans Groove Jazz Funk sound isn’t something that you’d necessarily expect to come out of the Netherlands, yet the Arnhem based songwriter, producer and drummer composed one of the most tantalisingly perfect anthems to introduce the summer. I can quite honestly say that never in Jazz Funk track have I been bowled over by the lyrics at the same time as the massive sound which creates an up-beat cacophony of high vibe electricity.

If you’re on the hunt for some feel good Jazz Funk you can check out Conviction by D’Z ft Freddi Lubitz on SoundCloud or through his website now.
