SBTRKT – HOLD ON FT. SAMPHA (UNOFFICIAL MUSC VIDEO) by Noggy

In this post the creativity of several geniuses is combined into a marvelous piece of art. Sbtrkt’s music is featured more than once on this blog and when you add Sampha’s melancholy voice to Sbtrkt’s beat the whole thing turns into a mesmerizing experience. (For the Dutch readers Sbtrkt and Sampha will be performing in Amsterdam on the 14th of October. If Amsterdam is a bit of a stretch click here to see if there is a tour date near you).

Melinda James probably felt the same way I do about Sbtrkt’s music and recently uploaded very pretty visuals to the Sbtrkt track “Hold On”.

We featured a Melinda James original here before. Somewhere last year we introduced her as an aspiring movie maker and posted “A moment with Afta 1″. If you take the time to run through Melinda James’s visual resume on her vimeo channel About her Films … you might notice that “aspiring” can be left out of the introduction nowadays.

JESSE BOYKINS III – WAY OF A WAYFARER EP (FREE DOWNLOAD) by Noggy

DOWNLOAD: WAY OF A WAYFARER 

Dammnnn do I love this. Not only because it’s Jesse Boykins III … which is a guarantee you will get eargasms, but because it’s RnB with an electronic twist.

No I’m not talking T-Painish autotune (no disrespect intended) but Jesse Boykins’ sexy voice and slick lyrics over perfectly composed electronic beats that add instead of take away from the tracks. On this 6 track EP there is only one track called “Zoner” that is reminiscent of Mr. Boykins his previous work.

How did this change come about? Jesse Boykins gives fans the following explanation:  After my last release “The Beauty Created” 3years ago, I took some time to truly discover my art, my spirit, my voice, my style, my love for life and its mysteries. That journey has taken me around the world, exposed me to various cultures and people, and enlightened and influenced me along the way. “Way Of A Wayfarer” is me sharing with you those moments and those lessons, in hopes that I can inspire you to share your moments and lessons with the rest of the World. That is the only way, the universal way. Much love & many thanks to SoulCulture, Street Etiquette & Passport Life for taking this journey with me..

Apart from the obvious growth, I can’t help but think that the fact that Gold Panda (wiz at electronic and synthesizer music) did the production helped a teensy weensy bit with the new direction.



UNTOLD SONGS VOLUME ONE (NEW RELEASE) by Noggy

Love this from beginning to end … “Untold Songs”  is a perfectly compiled release featuring all female vocalists who all sing their stories in different ways with music from various genres. Apart from good music you are supporting a good cause when you decide to cop this disc.

Big Up for Belle, the London based singer who selected all the songs for this album. She some how managed to make a perfectly smooth blend of songs and artists that might seem like a mismatch at first glance. If something seems vaguely familiar that might be cause she is not exactly a stranger to Strangefruitmusic since she was featured on the blog a while ago.

The compilation is being released in collaboration with Amnesty International and She Said 2 Much to raise awareness and money for Amnesty International’s “Stop Violence Against Women” campaign. Proceeds from the sale of this release will go straight to Amnesty International. Prior to this release a free download with remixes was provided and you can download that here
