Musician and storyboard artist Louie Zong gets “cozy” with his 80th Bandcamp release. We Bare Bears is my favourite show of the last couple of years. So when I discovered one of the show’s storyboard artists on Twitter, it was an immediate follow. Louie Zong also creates incredible art of his own on his Tumblr but we’re here for the music today. 80 releases is a majestic…

The loss of Prince in April 2015 hit millions of fans in the heart, mind, and soul. I’m still reeling from it. The private star kept much of his work protected from copying or “unauthorised distribution” (ie. his videos on YouTube) but his death opened those floodgates. It also allowed for further critical analysis of his work. After all, morality is often a time of…

We’re on a Vulfpeck tip, so join us in celebrating their latest single called Baby I Don’t Know Oh Oh. Vulfpeck have an uncanny knack of making the simple sound exquisite. Baby I Don’t Know Oh Oh is a cut off their upcoming album and features frequent collaborator Charles Jones, whose velvety smooth vocals marry up beautifully with the band’s instrumentation. It sounds like the new…

Here’s a video of Michael Jackson on the set of the Black or White video just being Michael Jackson. I’m a huge MJ fan and I’d never seen this footage until today. While they waited for “reloads”, Michael had some funny moments with the dancers, John Landis and Derek, a Michael Jackson impersonator. So rare and candid.

The UK songstress brings it all back with power, perfection, and a new album imminent. From the moment I heard her debut album, I have been mesmerised by Jessie Ware. Her voice was so refreshing amongst the sea of generic pop vocals barely holding a tune and saturated with effects. That was 2012. 5 years later and she has only grown in strength. After taking…

Childhood Cassettes looks at the tapes we listened to as young rapscallions. Today, I reminisced about journeys with my dad (alongside Paul Young) to his hometown. I’ve moved house nine times in my life (soon to be ten) and most of them involved a car journey with my dad at the wheel. He started out with a Golf Mk2, followed by the Mk3, a brief…

Clement Marfo returns with a new single including some incredible remixes. On the back of sync music success Breathe of Fresh Air, Clement Marfo is back with follow up track Let The Music Play. The song is lyrically stripped, focussing on the meta-subject of music and how it has the power to heal. Stream it below along with two remixes.

Brazilian musician Ed Motta compiles a mix of cool Japanese “City Pop”. Japanese representations of Western music always add a new edge and come out sounding better in ways. City Pop is musical menagerie of styles, taking from J-Pop, soft rock, AOR, and bits of funk and boogie. Ed Motta compiled a fine mix showcasing the cool vibes of City Pop. Any producers with a…

This Prince mix was made exclusively for the 11th annual Soul Slam in San Francisco. I can’t believe it’s been a year since Prince passed away. Time really does fly. DJs King Most and Proof put together this mix of covers, remixes, classics and rarities for the Soul Slam event in San Fran and they came nice with it.
