Chris Buxton has dropped their Sun-Kissed Indie Trap Pop Hit “Caught Up”.

Chris Buxton’s latest single “Caught Up” is a sun-kissed Indie Trap Pop hit which serves up a serious amount of sticky-sweet soul.

You’d be hard-pressed to find another Summer Pop hit with vibes which can take you higher than the ones which you’ll soak up in Caught Up. The infusion of Indie nuances allows Caught Up to be connectable and sincere, while the elements of Hip Hop add fire to the Pop-style production.

The short and sweet hit which Chris Buxton created in collaboration with Rap artist Trev is beyond radio-ready. It’s perennial Pop earworm material. Much like the South Carolina-based Alternative artist’s former releases.

It comes as no surprise that Chris Buxton has been able to amass over 3 million streams since making their debut in 2016 with the single “Remember”. His ability to craft rhythmically and emotionally arrestive tracks is unparalleled. Get him on your radar.

Inez Leon – Summer: Candidly Confessional Summer Pop

There may have been plenty of ‘summer fling anthems’ released his year, but when they resonate with authenticity along with the romanticism, it’s hard not to get drawn into the confessional lyrics and raw, honest human emotion which has been fed into the soundscape.

Which is exactly what you can expect from up and coming R&B Soul Pop artist Inez Leon and her upcoming single “Summer”. Summer may be a time when there’s plenty of expectation to live life to the fullest, yet, for many people, the season brings seasonal emotional havoc which Inez Leon has poignantly expressed in Summer. There’s a fair enough serving of melancholy in Summer, but the track simultaneously offers uplifting energy amplifying the inspiration behind the track which came from wanting to allude to relatable internal conflict.
