April 27th, 2015


It was good news for Mariah Carey fans worldwide when she announced early this year a new deal with Epic Records and a reteaming with the legendary L.A Reid on the production of her forthcoming album.

Today she dropped the only new recording from her new upcoming Greatest Hits album (set for release 18th May) entitled, ‘Infinity‘. We all love Mariah for her incredible vocal runs, her authentic soulful ballad sound and her classic break up lyrics, all of which can be found on this new track!

With L.A Reid on production, this track really does sound like the signature Mariah sound from the 90′s is back. The question is – are the lyrics a dig at ex-husband Nick Cannon? Take a listen below and decide for yourself…

Whilst Drake fans everywhere have been hopefully waiting on a new album or mixtape, it seems that he has been busy with another project which he debuted online today; a short film directed by Karim Huu Do entitled, ‘Jungle‘.

The film is a quiet, reflective and revealing journey into Drake’s world, including some early VHS clips of him rapping and singing as a child. With Noah ’40′ Shebib on the score and a couple of new tracks from Drake being teased in the background, it is a captivating watch, although no doubt some might find it over-indulgent.

New Music: Frank Ocean – At Your Best

January 18th, 2015


It’s been a while since we have heard any new material from Frank Ocean, then yesterday he broke his musical silence with an enchanting cover of The Isley Brothers classic, ‘At Your Best (You Are Love)‘, which he has expressed is a tribute to the late Aaliyah on what would have been her 36th Birthday.

The cover is stripped back, understated and hears Frank Ocean’s vocals sounding hotter than ever. There is no word of any other new recordings from the artist as yet, however he did sign under new management last summer so hopefully we won’t have to wait too long for that much anticipated follow up album to ‘Channel Orange‘.

Sean McCabe – It’s Time LP (ZR Records)

October 30th, 2014


Hi Soulquarians,

It’s a time where there is incredible musical creativity flowing and once again i’ve been lucky enough to give you a heads up on something that’s going to be HUGE!

Sean McCabe came to my attention 5 years ago whilst he and i were billed to spin at the first SunceBeat festival (Croatia) Garden party. When he took to the decks he started letting off some SERIOUSLY soulful house music steam. The link had to be made.

From that point he has become a friend and one of the most prolific and sort after producer / remixers of this current house generation notching up remix credits for Roy Ayers, Lynn Lockamy, Peven Everett & Byron Stingly.

He alerted me to the fact he was releasing an album about a year ago and now “It’s Time”.

The album is HEAVY!!!

It consists of beautifully constructed cuts with an impressive selection of vocal collaborators including Taliwa, Nathan Adams, Donaeo, Jennifer Wallace and Hanna Khemoh.

My favourite cuts are “Something about You” ft Jennifer Wallace, “Reach Out” ft Hannah Khemoh and Back To Front with Nathan Adams.

There are also two super chilled moments with the Hip Hop driven “All Of The Above” ft Big Ed finale and Sunday Lazin’ (too short in my opinion) Sean make me a longer version please!!

The album lands on Joey Negro’s label ZR Records on 3:11:2014

It’s an absolute necessity for real music lovers!

HOT New Track: Jamie Foxx – ‘Ain’t My Fault’

October 24th, 2014


It’s been a while since we’ve heard the soulful stylings of Jamie Foxx, after delivering huge RnB hits on his 2006 album, ‘UnpredictableFoxx failed to make an impact with his follow up 2010 album, ‘Best Night of My Life‘.

Sounding back on top form Jamie Foxx has dropped a new track today entitled, ‘Ain’t My Fault‘ produced by singer and producer Mario Winans. With a smooth,seductive vibe and Jamie’s vocal’s sounding on point, the track is a must for all RnB fans. Unfortunatley there is no official word on a new album, so until we here more just hit repeat on this one!
