Track Premiere: Russell Dean Stone – ‘Keeping the Faith’

It gets a bit dull when all the new male solo artists that drop into your inbox are making sickeningly smooth future R&B under semi-anonymous pseudonyms, it’s got to the point where we can’t tell our Oceaán’s from our Bondax’s half the time. It’s no wonder all the big names …

Premiere: XO Man – ‘LDN’

It’s not often a track lands in my inbox and consequently makes me laugh out my Tesco meal deal, but with lines like “I’ve been doing this ting while doing your ting” combined with the eccentricity of XO Man, I reckon we might have found a valid reason for banning …

Track Premiere: SLK – ‘Call’

We first caught SLK at her debut London show a couple of months back and were instantly captivated by an air of sonic intrigue. You know, that rare feeling where it might just have been worth missing the last train home and you’re left with the fading sounds of the …

Interview: Elli Ingram

We’ve been playing Elli Ingram’s records #ontheofficestereo for weeks now: the instantly affecting and all-too-real brand of soulful jazz casting a delicious pall over our desks, particularly her meditations on ‘Sober’ – hungover is a state we find ourselves in all too often. We sat down for a chat

Raury

Introducing: Raury

When ‘God’s Whisper’ landed in my inbox, a stomping war cry announced a track forcing you to stand up and take note. Or in my case, turn up and hit repeat on SoundlCloud for the rest of the afternoon. It’s a debut track that sonically resonates Raury‘s call to

Preview: Context ‘Stealing My Older Brother’s Tapes’ EP

Since Context announced last month on MistaJam’s show on BBC Radio 1Xtra that he would be releasing a special EP of tracks called ‘Stealing My Older Brother’s Tapes’ which were all modern takes on classic early 90s tunes, we’ve been wondering which tracks he’d choose, and the reasons why. Now, …
