Last month I wrote a little something about Sivey (made in Manchester) on Okayfuture, telling the world about a collaboration with Evil Needle (made in France). Well the wait is almost over, because in a few weeks they release their official “Constructive Interference” EP on Soulection. Although the two never met in real life, they worked together on this project for three years. Sivey brings that distinctive UK flava to the table, while Evil Needle adds that warm glow to the downtempo parts. Today the duo shares with you the single, “Constructive Interference” which they are giving away as a free download.
With a little help from Max Bryk (1/3 of the band Moonchild) on the keys, Nick shows us he’s a hopeless romantic and far from a one hit wonder. This summer his EP will be released as a free download, but for now go swoop up this single for free!
Recently I was chilling with Nick and Seravince in Vincent’s studio and a collaboration is well on it’s way. Stay tuned for that!
Production duo Potatohead People (consisting of AstroLogical and Nick Wisdom) are working on their debut album.
It’s coming out on Bastard Jazz somewhere in September and while listening to this new track, I’m getting curious about that album. They’ve been collaborating with Illa J for a while now and decided to drop the track “Never Left” (yes yes it’s a freebie) for the House Shoes ‘Jay Dee sample flip contest’. Illa J comes more than correct on this one, so can you say B A N G E R !?!??
I don’t want to come across like an old fart, but it seems like yesterday that Soulection was but a mere dream. I remember talking to Joe frequently and the initial idea was to start a blog. When the radio show took off, so did the label.
Three years and a massive following later, we congratulate Soulection on reaching 100K followers on Soundcloud. To celebrate this fact a free compilation album was put together. Containing a sh*tload of unreleased music from Evil Needle, IAMNOBODI, Atu, Khadisma and many many more.
Yada yada yada, no need to keep boring you with the details. Just get your download on!
Sir AFTA-1 (pronounced love or ▲❍▼❏) has finally returned.
After a well deserved hiatus, Manuel drops U N D E F I N E D on us and what a nice surprise that makes. Get ready to enjoy a blend of previously unreleased instrumental tracks combined with a few vintage favorites. Jams like “Lil Bit of Ice” are best served chilled, while others might prefer them crushed.
Moovmnt Guest Mix 09 comes from Melbourne-based Modern Funk producer Benny Badge. His “Seal The Deal” album came out last month and when it comes to that nasty Funk, the man behind Freekwency knows his stuff. We’re very happy to have Benny pick up where we left off last year. Indeed more guest mixes are comin’ your way in 2014! Much love to Duktus again for perhaps the sickest artwork till now.
We’d like you to meet Neo-Soul/Jazz singer Joanna Borromeo from Calgary. Her album “Kaleidoscope” was nominated in the 2014 Juno Awards for ‘R&B/Soul Recording of the Year’ and her latest collaboration, entitled “Sun Come In“, with Häzel is straight butta! The song starts off with Joanna’s heavenly serenade which quickly turns into a rhodes love story. Some may say they miss balance, but we at Moovmnt have nothing but L O V E for this ode to the sun. Great news, this one is now available for free download!!
A few months ago I missed the boat on Alfa & Emmavie‘s debut “Epoch” EP, but better late then never right?! It’s been sitting in my inbox for the past week and after another listen I decided this deserves some attention. For some reason it’s available for free download, but honestly this is way too good not to pay for! A lot more soulful music from the UK has been getting my attention lately, but let’s face it…London has always been a fertile breeding ground for musical talent. Have to shout out DJ Blue and Flava Dré for this one.
Long time music friend of ours, sir Jay Scarlett, tipped us on The SugaZz earlier today. This vocal trio from Lausanne consists of Betty, Heleni and Natasha. These beautiful ladies have a debut full-length album out on Colors Records entitled “Pick Up The Phone”. Don’t be shy, give these ladies a listen. They’re waiting for you to scoop up the album FOR FREE!
Meet 19 year old electric neo soul singer/songwriter/producer LeXuS. She began writing and producing at the early age of 9 and decided to take her vocal talents to the next level at the age of 15. She started experimenting with MAGIX & Mixcraft software and voice memos recording small snippets. Looking for a sound of her very own. She soon graduated to recording herself which lead to the release of her first project “Nostalgia”. Her most recent release is the “After Ours: A Love Story” mixtape (free download) featuring productions from Giorgio Oehlers, Elaquent and Evil Needle. This young lady has a unique refreshing style of her own and we think she has a lot of potential. A little rough around the edges, but very talented!
