Song of the Day: This Is Who I Am – Lateefah

If you’re looking to chill out this weekend, this sweet tune will set you right! Check today’s song, This Is Who I Am by neo-soul singer/songwriter LATEEFAH. The track was released 14th July.

Singing from the age of three has definitely paid off for the smooth gospel powerhouse…she received praise for her debut reggae single, Here I Am which stole the top spot for three weeks on the Reverbnation Christian chart for St. Lucia and, for a period of one week, was number one on all genres chart. Her single Love Me Through shortly followed and received heavy praised (and rotation) on Premier Radio. 

No doubt her latest offerings will fuel the success as you get easily drawn into  the Londoner’s silky-smooth vocals – so take time out and have a listen for yourself!

Song of the Day: Polaroid Flick – Tru Fam

TRU FAM Thrill XL

Check today’s song, Polaroid Flick   from hip-hop duo TRU FAM. The track is coming from their latest mixtape, Thrill XL, released  the end of April.

Hailed as one of the freshest acts in their hometown, New Jersey, twin brothers Sha (Shareef Naley) and Justi (Tyreef Nealy)  mix hip-hop with a dense downtempo drive (or, if you like, trip-hop.)

It all started back in 2009, when the release of their debut mixtape, Out of this World,  brought them back-to-back performances around New Jersey. Their track All We Need earned them a spot at the Van Rap Tour and they  also received heavy coverage on MTV and Last F.M. with their project Bowties and Applause.

The success doesn’t end with attention-grabbing tracks – they’re on a serious mission in building their brand #ULTRACULTURE, which encourages people to go for their dreams.

So have a blast at  Polaroid Flick to find out why they deserve all the hype…and if you’re digging this track, head over to Soundcloud and listen to Thrill XL.

Album review: Welcome to the Human Race – Hollander Blue

Hollander Blue

It’s been a long time coming but with a team of talented artists and producers, singer/songwriter HOLLANDER BLUE has fixed and perfected the album, Welcome to the Human Race, released last month.
