I first heard Natalie Oliveri on the Freddie Joachim Remix of her song Treasure, and ever since I have been a follower. Natalie Oliveri, the illustrious songstress, just dropped a new single Timezone with BlvckVmish handling the production duties. The electro-soul production layers so well with Natalie’s silky smooth vocals to create this perfect soundscape. I highly recommend this single, and plus it is for free!
I apologize for the delay between posts, my bad, but let’s get to the music! Petijee on the Humble Grooves imprint just dropped a new full-length album Soul Paper Scissors, and it is dope! The Slovakian beatmaker layers and arranges some dope jazz samples over some great piano. One of the guest features includes the soul man Miles Bonny, and that track is fire! Go get this album!
It has been a quick minute since the last post, but the music is still streaming quickly and I am feeling it. October is going to be a good month, CM Jones’ new album M O T I O N S is dropping on October 15th on the Munchie Records Imprint. He released one single and a sampler track of the album, it sounds fantastic! It is a melange of different sounds and layers that ooze out smoothness. Don’t just take it for me, go listen to it below!
I am still on the UK soul tip, that scene is really pumping out some dope releases that are really pushing the bounds. Salute out of Brighton is one of these cats, his voice is so smooth. I have been listening to this cover of Rihanna’s Work and I can honestly say, I enjoy his version much more. Salute’s next release One More Chance has a more uptempo production but his voice still shines. Go check him out!
Lately, I have been giving all the attention to the UK songstress, but I am not going to discriminate. The males have been hustling as well to bring some dope soul to your ears. Tom Bailey, based out of London, just dropped musical medley bomb yesterday. He combines the sounds of D’Angelo and Prince. Tom Bailey’s voice is on point, just go listen to the track.
The new and upcoming UK songstress Nao dropped a new single, Girlfriend and she is ready to drop her debut album For All We Know. The album should be dropping at the end of July. Nao’s sound is reminiscent of some classic 90s RnB mixed with some current updated electro rhythms. Nao’s voice is always on point and I can’t wait for the album.
It has been a minute, but the music keeps flowing with some real gems being discovered. Space Captain is a soul collective out of New York, they can be characterized by dope musicians arranging some creative musical landscapes while vocalist Maralisa Simmons-Cook drops some smooth vocals. In late February, the group dropped an EP called In Memory, and it is a real heater. Cop the new EP, Space Captain will not disappoint.
