BJ The Chicago Kid Re-Arranges a D’Angelo Classic


BJ The Chicago Kid has decided to honour the 16th Anniversary Of D’Angelo’s “Untitled” with a 3-song EP. We’ve chosen to highlight the title track – because it’s our favourite.

D’Angelo’s was obviously a much-loved track worldwide back in the day – and still is today – but BJ The Chicago kid has managed to flip the track and deliver a cover that’s of his own arrangement.

Have a listen and tell us what you think.

D’Angelo and The Vanguard: Sugah Daddy


Last night, while scrolling through my Twitter feed, I was attracted to the news that Red Bull were going to be releasing a free download of D’Angelo’s new single the following evening for their new campaign #20Before15. I immediately clicked retweet and signed up for the mailing list to be one of thousands to hear the new tune.

Now, you can too. Click through for an exclusive listen of D’Angelo’s new single.

EMRSN: Brown Sugar


With a smooth and sensual voice that will evoke all of your emotions, Melbourne artist EMRSN seems to be waving the flag for the Future Soul movement in Melbourne, Australia and beyond.

His exceptional voice cuts through the melodies and pierces the soul with every note and subtle inflection. I heard him sing live this week and you will want to see him too.



A new annual music festival is coming to Australia’s East Coast in October, despite the recent troubles that the festival scene has had within the past few months.

Maybe SoulFest will be the one to prove us all wrong. Who knows?

Are you willing to take that risk?
