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).

[su_highlight background=”#fff799″]Sometimes, what you come up with at midnight gets deleted in the morning. I kinda liked this one though! …percussion inspired by my first trip to Armitage Produce ;}[/su_highlight]

 

Seven Davis Jr – Circa 1999

 Soul/R&B 
 LP 

Full-fledged, lo-fidelity funk & soul from the mind of Seven Davis Jr on the newly shared album Circa 1999 (HERE) – an off-the-cuff styled jam project that is equal parts thickly laid, left-field funk and unfiltered, me-and-my-piano soul. Standouts include the Ummah-in-the-raw finger snap jam “Funny Thangs”; a jungle boogie 4 track gem called “EOTW (End Of The World)”; a slinky kink cut called “Pornostar”; and a psychoaquafunk wig out piece called “Shady Mofos”

Miki Rose – XOXO EP

 Soul/R&B

Bask in the glow of singer/songwriter Miki Rose‘s ember glimmering XOXO EP – a set that firmly plants the singer’s lovely, smokey soul vocals and pull-you-in-closer-and-closer delivery out front for all to enjoy. 

LeXus – Touch My Soul

 Soul/R&B 
 Single 

Swim in some incredible work from the lovely and talented LeXus courtesy of the single “Touch My Soul” – a sweetly streaming, lamp-lit affair that absolutely fills your head space once LeXus begins to breathe that AMAZING voice of her’s gently in your ear. Man….anyway. I hope you dig it as much as I do.

Jimetta Rose – The Light Bearer

 Soul/R&B 
 LP 

Check out the latest LP from singer Jimetta Rose who teams with the one and only Georgia Anne Muldrow (wearing her well-loved producer cap this go around) for a distinctively spun soul mosaic on the album The Light Bearer (HERE). Celestially gazing sounds stretch out and envelop the listener’s hearts and minds throughout this album with standout moments to be found on cuts like the cozy scene setter “Emerald City”; a wavy synth funk love-letter called “Catch A Vibe”; the murky and ever-shifting “Surrounded By Company” – which feels like an ode to early 70’s spiritual jazz; and my personal favorite, the shuffling album opener “Rhythm of Life”.
