[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]I love music, you love music, we all love music! So because of this, in conjunction with my new single ‘At Night (I Think About You)’, I've made a playlist of the stuff my ears are enjoying right now I call the ‘At Night Jamz’ playlist.
Ray BLK - My Hood
Ray is so talented. I grew up with her in this hood she sings about (Catford, SE6!). So sick to see her doing her thing and making bangers while at it.
Janet Jackson - Empty
Honestly one of the most forward thinking pieces of music ever. And Velvet Rope!
Becky Hill & Little Simz - Back to My Love
Two of my favourite women in music together on a track - couldn't ask for more really!
Alicia Keys - In Common
The Afrobeats vibes and lyrics and everything on this is too sick!
Black Box - Everybody Everybody
One of my favourite dance tunes from ‘Dreamland’, my favourite dance album of the 90s. Martha Wash is queen.
Jorja Smith - Blue Lights
Such a talented young girl with a beautiful voice and an amazing spirit.
Yuna - Lanes
I love a tune with fun chords and vocals that just sit right in the mix. I heard this song on the radio and my ears instantly pricked up.
INOJ - Love You Down
I love the Miami bass elements in this tune and also the juxtaposition of the sad tune with a dance beat.
SG Lewis - Yours
This is incredible. Raye is singing on the song but it's pitched down to sound cool and edgy and it worked; I love it!
dvsn - Too Deep
One of my favourite songs in a while. I loved the 90s R&B choir of vocals around it with this really sensual lead male vocal almost being the conductor of the song.
MNEK’s single ‘At Night (I Think About You)’ is out now.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
Give all this a try
There's also The Murder Capital, Shura, Ezra Furman, Friendly Fires and loads more.
Sam Fender is a man on a mission. Already beating current ‘biggest noise on the block’ Lewis Capaldi to a Brit Award, as his debut album nears its much-anticipated arrival, the sky really is the limit for an artist not short of stuff to say.
It's taken from their forthcoming album 'The Center Won't Hold', which is set for release tomorrow (Friday, 16th August).
Speaking to Matt Wilkinson on Beats 1, the trio revealed that will "definitely" be more from them before the year is out.
