Jhene Aiko - "Mirrors"


Jhene Aiko continues to amaze with her unique sound and delivery. Fans of the soul singer have been anxious for a full project since 'Sailing Souls' but Jhene is taking all the time she needs. 
We're lucky to get this new song and video for "Mirrors" in the interim though. It's no surprise that the beat bangs heavy and Jhene pours the honey on it as we've come to expect. Her signature is lovely and the Topshelf Junior shot video adds a complimentary eerie and dark visual. 
This is one to repeat, folks! Press play...

Public Radio - "T.R.A.N.S."


Public Radio is Paulie Rhyme and producer Deedot. I'm apparently 5 years late to the pairing but the duo has been working the indie and college radio scene with international acclaim and even charting on CMJ. It's pretty much written in stone to go with what works, so Public Radio is back with the first single, titled "T.R.A.N.S." from a not yet named upcoming EP.

They put together a straight Hip-Hop "backpacker" delight with a super dope crunched out Fender Rhodes driven track that's a little bit spacey and a little bit alternative. I'm definitely intrigued by their sound and looking forward to hearing more from them.

Check out the free stream and download. All positive energy, sharp lyricism and quality sound.
