It’s not easy to gain a fanbase and critical acclaim from dropping a few tracks without doing any promo or revealing any artist details, yet that is exactly what Toronto’s mystery RnB force DVSN have done!

Since they dropped their debut single, ‘The Line‘ in October of last year, the RnB world has been speculating who the vocalists, writers and producers are. We know that they are signed to Drake‘s OVO Sound label, we know that producer Nineteen85 is involved, we know that they have released four flawlessly enigmatic tracks and we now know that their debut album entitled, ‘Sept 5th‘ will be released on April 1st.

The album will consist of 10 tracks including previously released singles, ‘With Me‘, ‘The Line‘, ‘Hallucinations‘ and ‘Too Deep‘, pre-order it here and remind yourself of DVSN‘s addictive vibe below.

Multi talented, Grammy award winning producer and musician Robert Glasper has just announced a new album entitled, ‘Everything’s Beautiful‘ an 11 track project of reworks and reinterpretations of classics from Miles Davis.

The album features collaborations with Illa J, Erykah Badu, Laura Mvula, Stevie Wonder, Ledisi, Phonte, King and more and is set for release on 27th May. ‘Everything’s Beautiful‘ is the second Miles Davis project Glasper has undertaken, he also produced the soundtrack to the forthcoming biopic ‘Miles Ahead‘ which stars Don Cheadle set to drop on April 1st.

Glasper explains that he feels ‘Everything’s Beautiful‘ explores the kind of music that Davis might have be making if he were alive today and reflects the kind of artist collaborations he would likely have chosen.

It’s pretty tough to get mash-ups right, it’s even tougher when you take on tracks that are regarded as soulful royalty from the likes of Sade! However 18 year old UK producer Seanh has achieved the seemingly impossible – blending soul Queen Sade and rapper MF Doom to create, ‘Sadevillain‘ and trust me it works!

It’s been a while since we’ve heard any new material from Sade or MF Doom so it feels good to hear something fresh with their voices and if the production on this EP are anything to go by, Seanh is a homegrown talent to keep a close eye on!

If like me you’re devastated about missing Gallant’s tour over the past few weeks, you can find comfort in the arrival of his stunning new single, ‘Bourbon‘. Bringing life to his self penned layered lyrics with that incredible falsetto we know and love him for, Gallant delivers a soulful ballad with an edge that feels current, yet also reminiscent of early 90’s RnB.

Gallant has just announced the title of his debut album, ‘Ology‘ which will be released on April 06th, pre-order it here and you’ll get Bourbon straight away as well as singles ‘Weight in Gold‘ and ‘Skipping Stones‘ which features Jhene Aiko. And whilst you wait for the new album why not revisit his first EP ‘Zebrahere.

After releasing his third album, ‘Wildheart‘ in June last year Miguel has delivered a new EP entitled, ‘Rogue Waves‘ containing five vastly different remixes of his track ‘Waves‘.
