British acoustic Pop singer Marie Naffah has a duo of releases titled, “Air” and “Honey” that capture the raw emotion in her voice utilizing her vocal ability well. If you’re a fan of hers you can read an interview I did with Marie earlier this year here.
For fans of Hip-Hop and R&B we have three tracks, including two from underground artists, Goldie Luxx & Lou Phelps. Goldie Luxx provides the ultimate vibe musically and vocally with her silky smooth Alternative R&B. Her track “DRM” takes the listener on quite the journey through a toxic couple’s relationship. While Lou Phelps known for his work with KAYTRANADA and for being a long time fixture of the Montreal arts scene. Phelps brings a laid back bravado to this Madlib produced track. The last one in this lineup is “Scattered” by Lauren Jauregui featuring Vic Mensa. A jazzy simmering number highlighting Jauregui’s smoky vocals.
