Demo Taped – I Luv U

It seems as though Jai Paul has become the Disclosure of downtempo/electronic musical analogies. Demo Taped has released an almost carbon-copy of Paul’s, what is now, seminal tune: ‘Jasmine‘. Thing is, though, who actually cares? Until the sound gets rinsed to aggravating levels of ubiquity, anyone who seems to mimic...

St. Vincent – St. Vincent (Deluxe Edition)

Raye – Flowers

Perhaps Raye’s music is what Rihanna would sound like if she was an artist without a plethora of external writers and producers carrying her on a golden pop-pedestal. I’m not overly impressed by the production of this tune, it seems fairly standard, but Raye’s vocals lift and ultimately save this...

Atlas Bound – Tell Me

Its predecessors, ‘Talk’ and ‘Soul’ were surely tough acts to beat. However, it seems that Atlas Bound for great things (ha ha ha ha) as ‘Tell Me’ is equally as immersive. Stamped with that piano-tickled soft soul and funk sound, the record is showered with the smoothest of smooth...
