October compilation 2019 this [2019-10-27]

Too many new tracks so skipping my normal CD-size limit. Mostly r&b and neosoul.

Like Hannah Reid's contralto voice.
Sabrina Claudio, she is everywhere.
One of my favourites this month, Puth and Kehlani, goes well together.
SiR, could be the album of 2019?
Zedd/Kehlani, great voice.
Grimes, now and then she writes something absolutely fantastic.
Dizzy Fae, sometimes the video is more important than the song.
Angele, same here. Colors doing a lot to promote artists, always a nice selection.
Swish swish, the remix is everything.
Masalo, gotta love the italo disco vibe. New music by a dutch DJ I think?
808 State are back, rather nice album.

September (jazz) compilation 2019 this [2019-09-29]

Doing an extra compilation, more or less only with modern jazz. Didn't find a proper source for Andersson .Paak's version of Old Town Road, so it's here just as a video clip.

Ashley Henry is my new favourite, the beats and piano mix well. Nice flow.
"30/70 are a Melbourne Hip-Hop and R&B family delivering signature hypnotic grooves drenched in love, weed, meditation and spirituality." Quite like the broken beats, sounds just like London to me.
Everything Eska does.
Kiefer, a blend of jazz and hip-hop.

September compilation 2019 this [2019-09-22]

Videos can transform and bring a song to a new level. A couple of good examples this month.

Pomplamoose is on a roll, so many nice covers recently.
Big fan of Benny Sings. Tim van Berkestijn has real talent. Quite often different in the way Dutch are a bit different from the rest of us.
Tove Lo AND Kylie? Had to be great.
H.E.R. - 10/10p. Smooth.
For fans of Berlin electronica, this is a good month. Lots of new music from Ame, Booka Shade and Apparat. That Apparat video is scary, like the quote, "It is a feeling of relief, almost of pleasure, at knowing yourself at last genuinely down and out. You have talked so often of going to the dogs - and well, here are the dogs, and you have reached them, and you can stand it. It takes off a lot of anxiety."
