Exclusive Release: ‘Sonic Boom Vol. 3′ (Compiled by Maiya Norton)

 

Super excited about this new Sonic Boom Vol. 3 that our lady Maiya Norton has masterfully compiled for us this month. It includes some of our favorite jams from the last couple months, including a nice dose of music unlikely on folks’ radars.

The buzz building Denitia and Sene are featured, the venerable Shafiq Husayn shares some love, Wondaland’s newest artist Roman Gianarthur contributes his latest single, and MED’s much loved “Burgundy Whip” with Blu and Jimetta Rose is yet another treat on this free release.

Then we’ve got artists like Ikaz doing a ridiculous flip of Frank Ocean’s “Pyramids,” Philly producer Aeon going in on the sultry Sade sampled “GoodbyeLove,” and LIPS gives a totally huggable performance covering Frank Ocean’s “Super Rich Kids.”

Seravince, Stacy Epps, and Moonchild round out the offering with their sexy mood music, and Josiah Wise closes out Sonic Boom a la the echoey and layered modern chorus in “Gifts for Shitenno.”

New Track: Seravince – “U Love” ft. Renee Neufville

 

Keyboardist and composer Seravince will be soon releasing his new album Hear To See (ain’t that the truth). In the intermix, cozy up to the album’s first single “U Love” with the much loved Renee Neufville of Zhane and kick booty drummer Richard Spaven (Flying Lotus, Jose James).

The swaying soul track dances around your eardrums with a fluent carefreeness.

New Track: Stimulus & Chris Dave – “Full Grown” (ft. Bilal & Renee Neufville) + MP3

3rd 1st Impression is about taking a “first” look again, but from a brand new light, away from a wider known persona.

This collaborative mixtape features drummer Chris ‘Daddy’ Dave on production and Stimulus, known to most as a DJ, as an emcee. Out as a free download on September 12th, the mixtape will feature guest spots from Bilal, Renee Neufville, Stokley (of Mint Condition), Casey Benjamin and Screechy Dan. And yes, mister Dave handles all the production and Stimulus is indeed on lead rappity rap duty.

The first single from the project, “Full Grown,” dropped last week and it’s pretty rad. Featuring Bilal and Renee Neufville on guest vocals, Chris Dave and Stimulus seem to have banged out a solid track like it was nothing. If this is the mixtape, we’re going to need to know what an album sounds like, please.
