Making money from his lines is the mission, as he shows us strength from avoiding the easy way out that could end up in tears. Max Heet flows like water on Double Up as she displays his winning mentality on each corner of this excellent release.

Double Up from UK-born, Spain-based indie hip hop artist and singer Max Heet is a grind-packed single that reflects the struggle to where he is now.

In an industry that can make a soul cold, this is a reminder that if you stay in the zone, you can indeed win.

Belief and that never-say-die attitude, really, is that special sauce.

Latin fusion shaking with Yerba Colorá’s ‘Menéalo’

Menéalo means ‘shake it’ in Spanish and that is exactly the vibe on ‘Menéalo‘. This is a vibrant song from Yerba Colorá to get our day started.

Yerba Colorá is an international latin fusion band based in Marburg, Germany. The band was formed in 2016 by singer-songwriter and guitarist Naomi Keates from Manchester in England. Paired up with percussionist Sibori Zuñiga Molina from Cusco in Peru. The line-up was completed with Jörg Sebald from Marburg in Germany on the bass and Corey Taylor from Adelaide in Australia on lead guitar. The band’s influences span from rock to cumbia, with an affectionate nod to son cubano and the general motto “play whatever you feel like”. I love this vibe and energy. You also feel that this is a band that was created organically. With a world-wise lineup, this is an international band of note.

Taken off ‘¡Eh! P.‘, this is the 1st release and what a joyful sound it is. With stunning female vocals that sound so scrumptious in my ears. I could see myself shaking it with old friends and new friends. This is happy music that is much appreciated in 2020.

Stream this on Spotify and enjoy the vibe.

Swnami is certainly an act to pay attention to as there are sure to be plenty of great jams to come.
