“Right There” takes all the gorgeous sounds and accents of R&B and runs them through the catchiness of a contemporary pop filter to produce a track that’s inspirations have been brought together in just the right amounts.
Why We Like It
This acoustic track from Adam Dollar$ and Jeremy Clay gently brings rap and R&B back to Earth for a soulful new take off. Clay’s vocals demarcate Dollar$ verses, never overstaying their welcome, and Dollar$ verses complement Clay’s soft-spoken delivery, punctuating his feelings with astute observations and sharp illustrations of contemporary love.
New Track City does justice to a Dilla beat on “Do You Believe.” Bem and Chi.Stone’s rapid-fire references fill the track with clever word-play and a flow that’s consistently exciting from one verse straight into the next.
On her single, “Freak Out,” GRAMN. teaches us how to groove along to the smooth rhythms of her unique soul sound. The artist explores the internal strife and conflict that can push us to the very edge, with a sound that keeps us hanging on.
Inspired by hip-hop groups like N.E.R.D. and Gorillaz, VIBE WORLD ORDER brings dance crazy beats and varied flows to “004,” a single from their EP, “What If We Kissed… At The Vibe World Show?” Each member adds a dash of personal touch to a track that’s constantly evolving from the second you press play.
“Theme Music” blends a beautiful minimalistic beat with an unexpected vocal delivery. Psychadelic sounds and imagery combined with the steady flow of Good.To.Go, make the track a trip in itself.
“Sting!” is akin to a twisted acid trip with its heavy bass, sprawling synths and melodic guitar stabs. Reality and fantasy interchange with the hooks, verses and instrumental breaks. During your journey through this wormhole, a great architect and Delta the Butterfly take a seat next to you, spilling their innermost feelings onto your lap.
Lord Morgan and Basi’s “Quit Playin’” fooled me with its humble beginnings and swept the dust from my brain as it progressed, moving at the speed of light and teeming with life and colour.
NISHA, an Indian immigrant born in Nigeria but raised in America, had the attitude, bars, and charisma to catch our attention in our Submithub inbox with an echoing banger.
A post break-up sentiment that rings true to anyone trying to move on. As ARLO details his pain, the song builds until not only do you hear his voice, but you’re singing along with him as the final few notes play to a quiet close.
