Very few releases so far so still cating up on 2019 songs. Best video by far, Armando Young's Belladonna. I like Omar's Anthology, a wrap up of a long career (and still going). James Bambu, nice vocals and bass line. Best track this month, Chiminyo's Kandy Lanx, hypnotic, intense beats and nice finish. Also very happy to find a new drum & bass compilation just out on Hospital records, Sick music 2020 (the S.P.Y. track).
My best songs of 2019. The top 3-5 songs are probably in right order but it quickly becomes more a collection of great tracks and less in any specific order.
Just in time. A lot of late album releases. Does this mean we still buying music for Christmas? A start with a couple really nice (jazz) fusion tracks here, then the usual mix of soul and r&b. Next up: best of 2019.
Always looking forward to new material from Pat Metheny but also afraid of experiments with new styles. This sounds like the old fusion style. Thanks.
Takeleave - Nicolas De Araujo Peixoto is a Berlin-based musician with an instrumental background as a songwriter and guitarist. Broken beats with a bit ambient and house.
Werkha - Werkha is from Manchester originally, now in Glasgow. Jazzy in its core, with funk and soul. This is something you want to see live.
Neue - french producer and DJ N'thepe mixes jazz and hiphop, some say a bit of grime as well. Going to play Stockholm 22 Feb 2020 (have my ticket).
Yussef - jazz percussionist and one of London's new jazz stars. Like the broken touch.
Lolo - Californian child of French-Algerian immigrants, only 24, has written for H.E.R. Hip-pop and melancholy. Quite fond of this.
Sonny - a theory is that some songs get here because of the video.
Marie - Danish, London based singer. Classic r&b.
Solå - Sol SunnanÃ¥ Eriksenfrom NOrway. LoFi, own production.
Misha - it's very rare to find music from Finland on here.
Kaytranada's album is like a best of guest vocals.
Weeknd - I like going back to the dark lyrics. Less mainstream like this. Thanks.
