Der angesagte niederländische Musiker, DJ und Produzent Bakermat liefert seine neue Single ‘Trouble’ ab.

‘Trouble’ verbindet wehmütige, perkussive Elemente mit erhebenderen Melodien, die sich im Laufe des Tracks steigern und nutzt den raffinierten Stimmumfang des aus dem Londoner Stadtteil Hackney stammenden Singer-/Songwriters Albert Gold, dessen gefühlsbetonter, rhythmischer Stil bereits mit Größen wie Labrynth, Frank Ocean und dem britischen R’n’B-Star Shakka verglichen wurde.

Der in Suriname geborene und nun in den Niederlanden wohnhafte Soul Sänger JEANGU MACROOY hat sein zweites Album „Horizon“ veröffentlicht.

Die qualitativ hochwertig produzierten Songs wurden maßgeblich vom Soul beeinflusst, beinhalten aber auch Pop, Funk, Rock und leichte Dance Elemente.

Mir klingt das Ganze aber zu sehr nach den 80ern.

Der in Wien lebende tschechische Superstar und ESC-Teilnehmer (sechster Platz beim letztjährigen Eurovision Song Contest in Lissabon) Mikolas Josef  hat mit ‘Abu Dhabi’ eine Disco-Pop-Funk-Hymne im Stil von Justin Timberlake abgeliefert:






Nice :)


Die in London beheimatete Band Gentleman’s Dub Club meldet sich mit ihrem neuen Album “Lost In Space” zurück.

“Lost In Space” verbindet klassischen Roots Reggae mit schönen Bläsersätzen, einer Brise Jazz und einer Portion Dub.
Zu den Feature-Gästen zählen der schwedische Reggae-Star Million Stylez und der langjährige ReggaeVeteran Winston Francis, der in den vergangenen Jahrzehnten in England, Frankreich und Jamaika Chart-Hits hatte.
Alles in allem ein sehr gelunges Album.
