Pink Siifu and producer Ahwlee return to release new music as their enigmatic hip-hop/neo-soul duo B. Cool-Aid: the first official release in more than 3 years following their last full-length project Syrup back in 2019. It’s very good!
Bouncy, shimmering electro-pop-meets-soul from a trio of US collaborators. Shiny, chill vibes for a gloomy Thursday.
London-based Raelle is part of an ever-growing Neo soul scene in the UK; an artist whose music is heavily influenced with the 70s soul she grew up with. Her debut single was only released back in 2o20, but Wake Up Sunshine – the title track from her new EP – already seems to be something of a turning point for her, certainly in an emotional sense, as she says it “represents hope, as I move forward with my future, as well as loss as I say goodbye to people and things that no longer serve me but were once all I ever knew”. Whatever the background to its creation, this is an absolutely stunning slice of dreamy, melodic soul, with Raelle’s delicate vocal matched with equally chill drums and a bassline Thundercat would be proud of.
