Jameel Mason Unleashes Hip Hop Gem

Words By Ava Jordan.

What I love most about Jameel Mason is that he keeps evolving as a musician. Furthermore, his new release ‘Quarantine Mami’ takes him on a new direction with a sound which you will struggle to locate elsewhere.

‘Quarantine Mami’ speaks for the generation. He sings about a topic which many will relate with and his ability to inspire is captivating. Vocally, Jameel Mason hits all the sweet spots with a vocal which makes him stand out uniquely. I also relish how he sings from his heart with a delivery which gives the bigger hitters a genuine run for their money.

Taking hints from the greats, Jameel has introduced a new sound of his own. Also, he recruits support from a female vocalist who shines like a beaming light towards the end of the record. Between them both, they unleash a track which is going to be echoing out of hip hop basements for quite some time.

Therefore, grab this one while it is hot! You can take a listen below.

Calboa Smashes It With ‘Admission’

Words By Max Jordan.

‘Admission’ is the latest release from up and coming indie sensation, Calboa. Here, Calboa cements his name even deeper into the indie history books with a track which provides energy and mystique.

Kicking off ‘Admission’ is a guitar intro lead which is delightful. It comes sharp, and it is music to the ears for anyone who loves good old indie guitar hooks. An unorthodox style beat then jumps out, and it leads us into the verse potently.


Vocally, Calboa sounds fantastic. He has developed over the years, and he has blossomed into one of the finest indie musicians of recent times. So much so, I cannot get enough of his track here with a verse and chorus melody which is magnetic.

As the track progresses, we hear a variety of new sounds appearing, and Calboa cleverly mixes things up regularly to keep the fire burning.

B.U.d! Excites With ‘No More’

Words By Max Jordan.

U.S based R’n’B star B.U.d! is flying the flag for top quality soul with his new release ‘No More’.

I first came across this fresh track having being sent it by his promoter, and I have to say, I have found myself hooked ever since. It is infectious with a vocal charm which is challenging to keep at bay. Vocally, B.U.d! sounds delightful with him providing a performance which is massively piercing. He sings with his heart on his jacket, and he takes a no prisoner approach to songwriting with a message which leaves no room for ambiguity.

Musically, ‘No More’ is exciting, and it has a Prince style vibe popping out of it at times. Nevertheless, there is still plenty of unique qualities which makes it stand out truly on its own with a radiance which many will find hard to fault.

Lock Up Yer Daughters, Girl Afraid Are Here!

Words By Ava Jordan.

Hull indie rockers Girl Afraid are taking no prisoners with their track ‘Dutch Courage’. I am slightly late to the party, but this track needs to get a review. It is on fire, and it bites with frontman ‘Sam Mellors’ singing with genuine conviction and grit which is challenging to keep at bay.

Musically, Indie has never sounded quite as potent with the band smashing through the mix with integrity. They unleash their power here, and the energy oozes out of the track, so much so it nearly kicked me off my chesterfield.

Girl Afraid
Leader Of The Pack, Sam Mellors.

It falls into a post-genre category with the group taking hints from the big hitters in Indie, but they also bring their unique vibe which stands out truly in a distinct light. So, Hull, you lucky bunch! With chaps like these echoing out of the local indie basements, it is clear why they say those who go to Hull never leave. Keep chomping lads, and keep these bangers flowing!

Julia Thomsen Releases ‘Beauty Inside And Out’

Words By Ava Jordan.

Neo-classical is a genre which I am not hugely familiar. However, I know a potent composition when I hear one, and the new release ‘Beauty Inside And Out’ by Julia Thomsen is mesmerising.

Kicking off with a piano melody, Julia instantly gets us reaching for the tissues with its sincere emotion. The piece grows as it advances with a medley of new tones popping to the forefront with a synthesiser hook captivating as it reaches for the culmination.

‘Beauty Inside And Out’ provides plenty of gravitas, and its solemn vibe paradoxically gets the feel-good emotions soaring. Also, the empowering build-up is awe-inspiring. You can take a listen to ‘Beauty Inside And Out’ by Julia Thomsen below.

Le Fil Drops Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

Words By Ava Jordan.

Le Fil returns with a red hot pop track ‘Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is’.

The singer who only recently released ‘Undercover Lover’ hits the sweet spot on this track. It follows a similar vibe to his last number, but it comes in an even more potent fashion. Kicking off the record is an infectous drum hit which captivates from the second it plays. We are then with an unforgettable vocal performance from the London based artist who sings with his heart fastened to his sleeve.

As the track progresses, we hear an elective range of sounds popping into the mix. There is a killer piano lead sitting in the background which reminds me slightly of ‘Elton John’, but yet it stays true to Le Fil, and he proves his distinction with an undeniably catchy chorus.

Near Death Experience To Release ‘Moves’

Words By Ava Jordan.

Near Death Experience do not mess around. They are back following their previous release ‘Conquer’, and they accelerate even faster towards rock stardom.

The group takes influence from a variety of places, and they are ready for the release of one of their biggest rock tracks to date. It is not often that a follow up single comes quite as potent as this one, and I can only help but feel myself gravitating even closer to them with each release.

‘Moves’ is a mover. Vocalist ‘Ian’ talks about a woman who moves him, well the group move me here. So much so, my soles hurt from the constant foot-tapping trance I found myself in. Vocally, top draw, musically, fascinating with a bluesy guitar taking the lead and a rhythm beat and bassline which straps us in firmly.

The track is hitting all the stores on 14th August. You can take a listen to a preview below and also pre-save by clicking here.

Katie Veltri Smashes It With ‘Catch Me’

Words By Max Jordan.

Katie Veltri is back with new single ‘Catch Me’. It is a track which hits home with plenty of emotion and it takes us on an unforgettable adventure from the get-go.

It is a song which has a striking melody line which cements itself deep. So much so, the hook sticks like chewy on the bottom of a boot. Kicking off is a firm clap beat which gets the foot-tapping instantly. A divine guitar rhythm also strums out and leads us into the perfect vocal from Katie.

Katie sings about being alone and it provides heaps of sentiment. You can take a listen to ‘Catch Me’ by Katie Veltri below.
