Nick Price Cabin Built For Two Cover Art

The Canadian crooner is back! After having released the very impressive debut song “Naked Souls” last month, Nick Price returns with his second single entitled “Cabin Built For Two“.

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 !?!??

soulection 100k compilation
19.05.14

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.

Now AFTA-1 is a fair person. You can either pay $5 for a live AFTA-1 SP mix or grab a free download of the high quality lossless audio files. It’s up to you!

You might have noticed that José James is getting ready to release his new album While You Were Sleeping June 10 on Blue Note Records. The first single “EveryLittleThing” made us worry a bit, but thankfully the second single “U r the 1” sounds quite soulful. Really like the minimalistic vibe that puts the accent on the drums (give the drummer sum). Pre-order on iTunes if you like.
