New Track: Oke – “#TheFever” + Exclusive Download


Spanish neo-soul artist Oke kind of reminds us of a dude version of Vivian Green mixed in with a little Robin Thicke. Or butter. Either way, his most recent single is winter boo playlist material for sure.

A big fan of Giant Step, Oke has offered us the opportunity to share “#TheFever” as an exclusive free download for our community. Loving his blend of early 2000′s underground soul with after dark radio slow jams.

Expect new music from our new boo in February 2012. Now excuse us while we obsessively body roll.

New Track: Eric Lau & Guilty Simpson – “The Mission”

Missing Eric Lau after watching his video interview in September, aren’t you? We know you are. That’s why we convinced him to record a new track with Guilty Simpson (we didn’t really) just to share with you. How awesome are we?!

The track is called “The Mission” and is definitely an interesting direction for the producer. The sound is still sparkling and soulful, yet this time with a bit more grit than your standard Lau tune. The gully Guilty rides the mellow beat quite well himself. Definitely appreciate both these artists stretching themselves and trying something new.
