If you are not familiar with Jai Paul … my bad, cause I failed to introduce you to this London based artist last year. In Jai Paul’s case the music is basically the only thing we have to go on. There seems to be an air of mystery surrounding this artist cause other than his singer songwriter and producer skills thereis not much I can tell you about him.

To fans he is best known for his 2010 release BSTU, the track that put him on the map (for me).

BSTU by Jai Paul

After the 2010 smasher I hadn’t heard much from Jai Paul. That is up until 13 hours ago … Out of nowhere he hit fans up with a stream for his latest “Jasmine“. Even though it has a slightly different electronic feel, I’d have to say the man created another banger..

Lenny’s Black and White America dropped in august 2011. But since I am not a huge Lenny Kravitz fan, I failed to inform you.

I just streamed his latest video and I kinda stand corrected. There is something so right about the title track of the album and I’m not just talking about the politically correct lyrics here. The baseline, the strings the whole 70’s vibe of this arrangement … is simply delightful.

Azealia Banks is a 19-year-old lyricist from Harlem, NYC and at this point I haven’t got much on this young lady except for her very fresh visuals for her track 212!! The track was a free download on her soundcloud page … but when you press play you will immediately understand why it says “this track has reached it’s download limit”.

Mrs Banks knows that she’s got a banger with “212” that is why she posted a download link on her facebook fan page, so old and new fans can have this one on repeat.

Ben Westbeech – There’s More To Life Than This Out 12th September http://bit.ly/nq3FoV

He hasn’t jumped the gun, that’s for sure.  Having spent several rudderless years following the release of his debut album Welcome To The Best Years Of Your Life, the re-energised producer, singer and DJ eased himself back in to the breach earlier this year with the single Falling and follow-up Something For The Weekend.   Now, finally, the long awaited There’s More To Life Than This album is upon us.  Recorded in Berlin, New York, London, Bristol, Munich, Stockholm and Stuttgart with producers Motor City Drum Ensemble, Redlight, Georg Levin, Chocolate Puma, Midland, Soul Clap and Henrik Schwarz, the album marries Ben’s songwriting and soul/jazz instincts with a house edge provided by some of the scene’s leading producers and the result is a harmonious, elegant and above all, individual set

Tracklisting:

1. The Book (Produced by Georg Levin)
2. Something For The Weekend (Produced by Danny J Lewis)
3. Falling (Produced by Lovebirds)
4. Same Thing (Produced by Chocolate Puma)
5. Justice (Produced by Motor City Drum Ensemble)
6. Stronger (Produced by Midland)
7. Inflections (Produced by Henrik Schwartz)
8. Sugar (Produced by Redlight)
9. Let Your Feelings Show (Produced by Georg Levin)
10. Butterflies (Produced by Rasmus Faber)
11. Summer’s Loss (Produced by Rasmus Faber)

available on iTunes

Hannibal is the founding member of several popular collaborative efforts over the past 5 years including Owusu & Hannibal (Ubiquity Records, 2006), Quadron (Plug Research, 2010) and most recently Boom Clap Bachelors (Plug Research, 2011). His projects have garnered praise from the likes of Pharrell Williams to Adele; from Giles Peterson  (BBC) to the entire team at KCRW.

But while Robin recognizes the benefits of working within cohesive groups and collaborations, he also values expressing his creative freedom through individual efforts.

Enter Bobby, his solo EP which was released digitally only on August 30, 2011 on Plug Research Music. Free to express his ideas fully and completely, Bobby fuses modern, abstract production with classic songwriting. The result is an ambitious leap into the future. (source: Plug Research)
