This week’s write-up is inspired by a healthy dose of soul, starting with a sweet remix that boasts production chops every bit as silky as the voice it surrounds. Future Classic’s Wafia set hearts on fire with her aptly titled ‘Heartburn’ at the end of last year, and Swedish duo Jarami have infused the original with an infectious groove to make sure dance floors experience that similar incendiary feeling. Bounce is the necessary trademark of any Jaramix, and we’ve been dealt a generous helping here to ensure we keep this bumping all week long.
Now there’s not a lot of info out there on newly surfaced moniker Moss Kena, and only this glorious rework of ‘If These Walls Could Talk’ to its name. What we can tell you though is that there is some insane funk on display as this track steadily builds, with the female talent handling the lyrical responsibilities with smooth finesse at every turn. We can only hope there is more where this came from.
Another fresh name on the scene this week is London-based MALIKA, but with the backing of Snakehips and Maths Times Joy in the production department of her debut track, you can be sure there is some serious promise there. The lush vibes are no surprise coming from these two Dojo veterans, but the soulful vocals are where the true delight can be discovered. In much the same way, we conclude proceedings with another UK songstress in Sundai, her latest single ‘Sugar Sweet Tea’ receiving support from a similar caliber of beat-making mastery in Jarreau Vandal. With sounds every bit as buttery as the title would promise, it’s safe to say that the future of the R&B genre is in very good hands with creations like these.
There’s plenty of love for other styles as well, making sure the mood is set to chill at all times. Peace out.
