Joanna Borromeo Häzel Sun Come In

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!!

alfa & emmavie epoch

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.


Henry Wu is a very talented producer from Peckham, South East London, by way of Taiwan. A few months ago he released an EP on 22a Recordings including the song “All Over” featuring Dziko aka Shepard Manyika on vocals and Mo Kolours on percussion. This was a limited vinyl only press and has completely sold out. Unfortunately the song is not due to come out digitally any time soon, so we asked Mr. Wu if we could share this with the world.

marcus strickland twi-life inevitable jean baylor jazz

Marcus Strickland’s Twi-Life is an electric band with its inception rooted in the soul music Strickland grew up listening to. Combining the musical stylings of a supergroup of sorts, Twi-Life features legendary trombonist Ku-umba Frank Lacy, dexterous keyboardist Yuki Hiran, bassist Mark Kelley (The Roots), dynamic drummer Charles Haynes and special guests Jean Baylor (Zhané) & Raydar Ellis. Strickland himself plays the the sax and does the production. The live version of “Inevitable” sounds so amazing thanks to miss Baylor, but remember this is a mere taste of things to come. And I know we’re excited to hear more from this project!

lexus after ours mixtape evil needle giorgio oehlers

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!

warren xclnce amazon examine me etta bond

I’ve had my ear on Warren Xclnce for a while now and finally found the right moment to talk about young Skywalker Luke aka Mr. Cummings. The first song I heard from this talented producer from London was “Examine Me” featuring Etta Bond. This was on his “Nymphophonic” album which, for the record, also guests IAMNOBODI and miss Ego Ella-May. That one really blew my socks off and is still available for free download. Now fast-forward to today, to his latest production “Amazon” which is off a compilations project initiated by Collective Resonance. “The Amazon Project” is being put out to raise funds for the Amazon Rainforest and releases on the first of June.
