Cleo Arie – Jah Bless

Unfortunately, because no one walks around with a giant neon sign reading “good intentions” on their foreheads, we have to think an awful lot about the characters we shake hands with, and the deals we shake over.  Jah Bless sounds like Cleo Arie might’ve been curved once or twice in the industry and beyond, however it is not the story she’s choosing to tell. Over a clean afro production and signature…

“To Hell With Healing” – Kae Chaps

Kae Chaps adamantly rejects the concept of healing because healing might come at the expense of his craft, then that’s one more thing lost at the hands which once held his heart. His uncompromising vocal prowess comes in deep black obsidian frosted with coagulated bad blood – a suffering of great inspiration. The hype around Gehena is well deserved! The song is a cool and mild condemnation of damnation and…

TheLastLetter’s 3AM

Most of us are found floating in vehemence at ungodly hours, TheLastLetter’s candid dramatization of events that occur over a 15 minute period (on the same couch) will always be relatable. TheLastLetter’s 3AM is musical proof that to not relive every single second of tragedy is a betrayal to the pain that will always demand to be felt. Her vocals are a velvety fragrance oil (with a sprinkle of grit)…

Amvis, Its a Vibe

There’s absolutely no way of telling where you are with Amvis, especially when you consider the lack of resemblance between his old sound and the mellow ‘vibes’ he’s now serving up these days. While many things nowadays provoke decidedly mixed reactions, this song only stands as one thing, (for lack of a better word) a vibe. 2013 Amvis definitely has a lot to learn from the future which we now…

Takura, From Time To Time

Without downplaying the amount of pressure it actually is to constantly deliver, Takura can never have a bad music day – especially not when his musical efforts bring home a significant chunk of the country’s bacon! Takura became Takura by always boiling his sound down to its essence, down to the “why make music in the first place!” Hence his uncomplicated style will always triumph over the overworkshopped joints the…

J. Castell, Gimme a chance

‘Chilled’ resides in the narrow chasm between being laid back and being a mild sedative, a vibe that makes sense only when you’ve acquired the taste. The song is definitely beyond passable but not much has been done in the way of backing the claim that it’s actually an Afrobeats jam – but then again, what genre is not a spectrum nowadays? the song exudes more of Amvis than anyone…

Obi Davids is a dark tourist exploring the ruins of what used to be his happy place

Obi Davids is a dark tourist exploring the ruins of what used to be his happy place, and he’s acutely aware that he can never will it back into existence. No Air is a somewhat tragic mosaic of memories, meticulously pieced together in such a way that both affliction and contentment can be heard, all for our auditory pleasure. The song is a calm and refined version of how most of us would carry ourselves in the midst of such a scenario, a scenario to which we all relate – hence the lack of need for translation. The production is expectedly grim but still within the confines of an Obi Davids kind of vibe; groovy and tonic but still quiet and steady, with the necessary pinch of ‘Trapsoul’ to balance…
