Brooklyn based electro-soul artist Norvis Jr. this week dropped his Songs in the Key of Chos, Vol. 1 project, and it’s chockfull of interesting glitchy experimentation. Hearing bits of Nicholas Ryan Gant, Flying Lotus, and Jesse Boykins III in here, along with a whole lot of something else. We like!

New Release: Nicholas Ryan Gant – ‘Promises’

 

Nicholas Ryan Gant has been one of our favorite modern soul vocalists for a minute now – there is just something about the vibration of his voice that is unlike anyone else. So it’s no surprise when we say that we are completely and utterly beside ourselves now that he’s released his first solo album! Promises dropped today and is fourteen tracks of yummy mellow soul snacks.

“Over Us/Convo” definitely stands out as our favorite track and the Fresh Daily feature on the title track is rather tickling as well.

New Track: Nicholas Ryan Gant – “Cereal Love”

 

Our boy Nicholas Ryan Gant is one pretty darn rad vocalist – slept on highly, in fact. What we also love about this dude is his lightheartedness and willingness to just have have some fun. And his appreciation for food. Ok, we’re done.

What’s happened here is that homeboy took Aaliyah’s “One In A Million” and flipped it just a tad to share with us the boundless depths of joy that is “Cereal Love.” Act like you don’t just adore it. Try.

New Track: yU – “If U Down”

 

DC rapper and producer yU’s upcoming album, The Earn, is just around the corner with its December 13th release date. “If U Down” is the first single off the album. The drama-ridden track is produced by the super talented Slimkat78 and carries nothing less than the signature urgency of a yU flow. If yU’s flow was a persuasive argument, it’d probably win – he could pretty much be saying anything, really. Just saying.

Look forward to several amazing appearances on the upcoming album, including Nicholas Ryan Gant, Imani Bilal, Bilal Salaam, and Diamond District, to name some.

Stream and download “If U Down” for free below!

New Release: Sarah White – ‘Space Madness’

Brooklyn based Sarah White dropped her Space Madness album today as a name-your-price download. The sound is a varied electro-soul and includes features from Nicholas Ryan Gant and Cecilia Stalin, amongst others. The mood shifts from rockish to spacey to 80′s ballad and on – the lady is versatile. Sarah’s voice soothes and provides the perfect ambient soundtrack to a quiet evening.

Please note that half the proceeds from the album will go to Sarah’s label, Cultura Love (a new record label and non-profit), and kids in need.
