Lorine Chia & Romero Mosley – NameOfEP

 Soul/R&B 
 EP  

Singer Lorine Chia and producer Romero Mosley share sounds that are sunny and ambrosial feeling while also being thickly layered and topical on their latest production, When Morning Comes (HERE). Standouts on the 6 track jazzy-soul opus include the buttery album opener “A Little While (5683), the cherry chillout jewel that is Intergalactic Love (Interlude)” (which clocks in at a fully satisfying 5 minutes), and the smokey drum break & piano soul closer “Find Your Love” (featuring a closing poem from the well loved Dungeon Family representer Big Rube). 

 

The Minez (Aarophat & C-Dubb) – Strange Fruit

 Hip-Hop/Rap 
 Single  

The Minez – which is the creative pairing of emcee/producer Aarophat and producer C-Dubb – take a moment to speak on race and violence while channeling the weight and energy of a Billie Holiday classic on the balmy single “Strange Fruit” (HERE). 

 

Zeroh – AllDayEverything/Sorted

 Hip-Hop/Rap 
 Single  

Zeroh explores some acidicly vivid sounds on the fever dream singles “AllDayEverything” and “Sorted” – both taken from his upcoming album Tinnitus (HERE)

[su_highlight background=”#fff799″]Los Angeles native, dyed in the wool hooligan Zeroh gets loud, technical and strange all over again on his new ten track album TINNITUS [HNR65]. Organized noise was haphazardly strung together and embellished amongst 15+ hours of music in a dark smokey garage on little to no sleep. The severity of this raw bludgeoning echoes pain in the heads and ears of your typical everyman in an attempt to bring them to higher state of consciousness. Zeroh emanates a low glowing light close to the chest… the one saving grace for this genius god awful cacophony.[/su_highlight]

 

 

Low Leaf – Pupil Of The Universe

 Electronic 
 Single

 Hip-Hop/Rap 
 LP  

Ozy Reigns – and a close-knit list of producers & comrades – compose an observational, “soul on top” selection with the newly released album, Sun Born (HERE). 

Sanura – SAGA

 Soul/R&B 
 EP  

Sanura ferries luminous and pastoral electro-soul waters on her newest offering, the 7-track SAGA EP (HERE). The sound and energy here is veiled, seductive, and nuanced in a “shared glances in a dimly lit room” sort of way. Not limiting herself to just R&B or electronica, the young starlet shines on album highlights like the smokey synthwave number “Unlikely Lovers” (featuring rapper Intalek); an ethereal “fog on the water” number called “UDKMN”; the syncopated and soulful house-music stepper “Jungle Fever”; and a ritzy & rejuvenating energy jolt called “909” (featuring SMPL). 

 

Duke Westlake – Roads
