‘Almost Famous’ with the Soulection Crew on their Australian Tour

by

It’s taken me a while to post this review about my time with the Soulection crew in Sydney and Melbourne, and to be honest, it’s been ready for a couple of days now but I haven’t been 100% happy with it.
I’ve read through it over and over and I don’t know what else I can change so here’s the best version of what I’ve written. I hope you enjoy the words that are shared and that you’ll be able to picture what happened if you weren’t there. Peace.

Nehzuil: Put Your Records On (Remix)

by

When the Soulection crew were in Australia last week, I was fortunate enough to meet Sydney producer Nehzuil via the LA boys. On their last night in Sydney, I witnessed something pretty special: Nehzuil jamming and creating music organically with fellow creatives Thandiwe Pheonix and E$TA for hours on end in Nehzuil’s home studio. The atmosphere was electric!

It was such an inspiring night! Take me back there please!

Nehzuil and the Soulection boys worked on a remix whilst they were in Sydney but this isn’t it haha. #SorryNotSorry

But on the same day the boys made music together, Nehzuil released his latest flip of Corinne Bailey Rae’s ‘Put Your Records On’.

Soulection’s Sydney Show

SYDNEY!!

Cancel your plans for this Friday evening, because the only place you should be is at the Oxford Art Factory to catch Lakim, Esta and The Whooligan from Soulection perform live.

Yep, you read right. The boys are in town and we both know there’s no other place you should be.

See you on Friday night! 😉

Alina Baraz: Paradise

Here at The 5 to 9 Life, I’m always on the hunt for new music but I prefer to look for the underground stuff that no-one is hearing or that one song that only a handful know about. None of that mainstream music you hear every hour on the radio these days.

Hip hop artist Atmosphere said it perfectly when he rapped ‘I’d rather kill the radio and listen to the rain hit’ on his track, Modern Man’s Hustle. This is pretty much how I feel about the state of music on the radio these days.

But it’s nice to know that there are platforms like Soundcloud to really show you what’s GOOD out there.
