All PJ Wants Is To Be ‘Gangster’

by

Atlantic Records’ artist PJ is one to watch in 2016.
The singer/songwriter does not hold back when it comes to showcasing her originality through songwriting, and her new single, ‘Gangster’, is an honest song that captures the buzzing artist speaking on a need for a stronger personality.

KITTENS: Sway In The Morning Mix #2

by

It is all about KITTENS for me today – the DJ, not the animal.

Lauren ‘KITTENS’ Abedini is a Los Angeles DJ who has already toured with Kid Cudi as well as DJing for Usher, who is also her current mentor.

And earlier this week, she stopped by Sway in the Morning to drop another live mix. You have to listen to this one.

Sonya Teclai: Hurt Me

by

California-raised artist Sonya Taclei is a new artist that I came across recently during my travels and her new single, Hurt Me, is one that I had to share.

A smooth release that blends the right amount of RnB, hip hop and soul with a hint of the blues.

Listen to it NOW.

Brain: Are You That Somebody?

by

BANKS covered Aaliyah’s 1998 hit ‘Are You That Somebody?’ on acoustic at a BBC Live Lounge session recently.

BANKS is a girl that I can listen to constantly without feeling like skipping a track – ever. So it comes as no surprise that she totally nailed a sweet acoustic rendition of the 90s classic.

BANKS: Brain

by

BANKS definitely made some noise last year with ‘Waiting Game’ and her debut EP, “London”, proved that she was an artist to watch.

This week, BANKS makes her first big move in 2014 – a year certain to be a big one for her – with the premiere of her new single, ‘Brain’.

IAMNOBODI: Needs & Wants & Bad Habits

by

IAMNOBODI has done it again with his latest instrumental EP.

The man can do no wrong. Seriously.

Fusing together hip hop, jazz, and soul with two of the biggest RnB divas in the game, ‘Needs & Wants & Bad Habits’ is a record you need to listen to – RIGHT NOW.

DO IT.

The best part? It’s FREE – but if you want to support the man, please do so via his bandcamp. You won’t regret it.

Jhene Aiko: Bed Peace

by

‘Wake Up. Wake Up.’

Jhene Aiko and Childish Gambino have collaborated on the perfect song to wake up to each morning.

Listen to ‘Bed Peace’ now and kick off your mornings the right way.

IAMNOBODI: Maputo Dance

by

Another week, another Soulection release.

Founder Joe Kay is holding it down over in LA with all the talented artists/producers he currently has on the label’s roster and the abundance of releases and freebies that he’s been uploading over the internet airwaves, but I’m not complaining – not one bit.

The latest in question is IAMNOBODI whom will be releasing his album, Elevated, on October 1st.

But until then, we’ve been given a little taste with the single ‘Maputo Dance’.

BANKS: Waiting Game

by

R&B is making its way back onto the airwaves and LA singer BANKS is definitely turning some heads – mine included.

Last week, she revealed the visuals for her latest single, Waiting Game, and the black & white video is as cool, dark and haunting as her voice.
