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.

Last week sir Benny Badge blessed us with the new Freekwency album. I recon “Seal The Deal” sounds like being in the middle of the early eighties. It’s Funk at it sleaziest (in the best way possible). Of course partly thanks to contributions from Cazeaux O.S.L.O., Charli James, Jordan Ruru, Ale Chambers & De Konichiwa. So as I was carefully selecting which songs to stream, I found myself searching for that heavy headnod material with a heavy groove. And just when I was browsing on Soundcloud (for something totally different) my eye caught a glimpse of this Yam Who? edit. I guess it was meant to be in this post! Enjoy this wonderful Funk-filled album and purchase if you like what you hear.
Twenty-two year old Nick Price grew up singing classical music and performed in several operas, with the Canadian Opera Company, before realizing his passion was in contemporary Soul. He grew up in Toronto, studied music at Berklee College of Music (Boston) and moved out to L.A. where he currently resides. With a steady diet of Motown, R&B, Jazz and Neo-Soul, Nick started to shape his sonic vision, which is now coming to fruition with the release of his debut song “Naked Souls”. Max Bryk and Andris Mattson, from Moonchild, are responsible for the production and it’s and honor for us to exclusively premiere this in Europe. Please enjoy an amazing introduction in the form of a free download. Care, share and play everywhere!
Since I have known B. Bravo he’s been in a band called the Bayonics. I’ve heard this 10 piece band play funk, latin, reggae and some hip hop live and they rock! Lead singer Rojai was mentioned on here before regarding his “Hard Pressed” EP with E-Live. It kinda makes sense for buddy Bravo to drop a remix of their “Good Love” cut from their “City Roots” EP. Luckily good love is often free, so make sure you snatch up that free download!
