Something to get your Saturday kicked off right! GREAT new from local alt. soul singer Allie with also local, buzz producer/artist, Harrison. Puts me in the mind of Tasty era Kelis which long-time readers know was a major favorite of mine back when it came out. Also, ICYMI, hit the jump for another ‘recent’ joint by Allie, “Move Like A Mystic” produced by 2nd Son and The Kount.
Massive collab between electronic-aboriginal music pioneers, A Tribe Called Red and Brooklyn hip-hop legend, Yasin Bey (bka Mos Def) with an assist by another Canadian artist, Narcy who you may remember when he was going by the name, The Narcicyst and I posted his ‘Hamdulillah’ video HERE.
More of that ‘New Toronto sound.’ Except Stwo is from France and Amir Obe from Detroit & Brooklyn (I believe). Still this is RIYL Drake, Weeknd, Partynextdoor, Tory Lanez, Daniel Caesar, Jazz Cartier, Roy Wood, Majid Jordan, DVSN etc. Man, WATTBA in the 6!
Can’t front. This record by Skrillex and Rozay, from the Suicide Squad soundtrack, is CRAZY!
Long-time readers know we are super fans of Australian electronic soul duo, Audego here at The Kitchen. Aroly Tariq‘s plaintive, emotion-filled vocals over Pasobionic‘s edgy & dark but funky beats have made for some amazing music to date.
We’ve told the story multiple times about first discovering their music while screening submissions for NXNE and subsequently corralling them into sharing a track for our 11th anniversary This One Goes To Eleven… compilation back in 2014. That track “Gone” ended up becoming the hit of the comp and, lo and behold, two years here it is as part of Audego’s latest album, Glaciers which we have an exclusive preview listening copy of right here on the Kitchen.
As described by Audego vocalist, Aroly: “Glaciers is a culmination of our experiences in the last two years that we haven’t been able to process through conversation. We aren’t talkative people, so dropping “Glaciers” is our way of breaking the ice between us and everybody else.”
