Mixtape Review: Olde English – Travis Boykin

Travis Boykin

When TRAVIS BOYKIN (formerly known as AMOR FATIII) approached me with the effortlessly smooth tracks, Payday and Edge of the Cliff Livin’, I suspect his fresh and velvety take on hip-hop would be the theme throughout his debut mixtape, Olde English released last month.

Still retaining the smoothness , the 10-track project also feature warm hints of old-school blues and jazz, which I did not expect from the laid-back Tennessee  emcee – but, hands down, it was a pleasant surprise.

Olde English is the perfect mixtape  for kicking back with some friends… that’s if you don’t mind the gigantic burp at the end! Have a listen and enjoy!

Song of the Day: Chasing the Stars – Katie Raven

If you’re planning  a chilled out weekend, start by listening to Chasing the Stars, the debut ‘orchestral pop’ single by KATIE RAVEN.

In 2011,the  singer/songwriter was discovered whilst busking in her native country New Zealand and was signed to London-based, Far South Records.

For the last three years, the law  student has been perfecting her craft by teaming up with Grammy-nominated UK writer/producer Sacha Skarbek, who worked with heavyweights like ADELE, JAMES BLUNT and LANA DEL REY.

Now she presents this truly breath-taking single…so please take time out (with a cup of tea, of course) have a listen!

Chasing The Stars is now available on iTunes.
