Sampha Process Artwork

Over the years, Sampha has made a name for himself through his collaborations with other talented artists. He’s previously worked with Frank Ocean, Kanye West, Drake, SBTRKT, Solange and many others. Sampha's voice is what sets him apart, making him an incredible artist that created this demand from high-profile artists to get him on their songs. Now he’s finally delivered his full-length debut album Process delivered via Young Turks.

While he's done solo work before with EPs, this serves as his first full-length release. The 10-track project from the UK singer, writer and producer proves himself as a solo artist. His dreamy vocals shine atop the versatile production. Some tracks are simply him singing with a piano while others bring electronic productions including chill trap influences as the instrumentals are relaxingly melodic throughout. His soulful, unique vocals steals the show throughout the project displaying an incredible amount of emotion.

Process was co-produced alongside Rodaidh McDonald, who works with XL Recordings and was the co-producer with Jaime xx on the new The xx album. The 27-year-old Sampha delivered a cohesive album filled with powerful emotion as his songs touch on honest self reflection while displaying his warming vocals. We’re loving this album already and excited to see where Sampha’s career goes from here. Enjoy!

Listen To A Preview Of Frank Ocean & Calvin Harris' Unexpected New Collaboration

Calvin Harris Frank Ocean

Yep you read that correct, Frank Ocean and Calvin Harris have a collaboration together.

After Frank Ocean has had one of the most exciting years in his career yet, he's linked up with Calvin Harris. Frank going the route of radio-friendly dance music is something fans of either wouldn't have expected.

We do have the first clip of this as Calvin shared on Snapchat last evening. Listen below.

This sounds like the most radio-friendly Frank we've heard yet and has us anxiously awaiting to hear the final form. Sounds like this could easily become one of the biggest songs of the year once finished given both the artists' massive fanbases. Enjoy! 

 

 

Stream & Download Bonobo’s Impressive Sixth Album ‘Migration’

Bonobo Migration

Bonobo’s highly-anticipated sixth studio album Migration is here and it's his most ambitious body of work to date. The project's momentum has built overtime with his previously-released singles, "Kerala", "Break Apart" feat. Rhye and "No Reason" feat. Nick Murphy (Chet Faker), which we loved.

The LP's title is a reference to him working on much of this album on the road while touring where he'd take influences from the diverse set of collaborators and his travels. Migration blends several musical styles from many parts of the world into one cohesive piece. Not only did Simon Green (Bonobo) spend time everywhere from the wilderness to the mountains to the desert to gain inspiration, he also included samples recorded from around the world. This includes  "an elevator in Hong Kong airport, rain in Seattle, a tumble dryer in Atlanta and a fan boat engine in New Orleans into his intricate sonics,” according to his press release.

Bonobo blends just about every type of music on this incredibly diverse LP. He also shows his expert ability to build lush soundscapes and textures atop one another from start to finish. Migration taps all sorts of moods that would be enjoyable chilling on the couch or in a DJ set.

The collaborators bring a unique quality to the release as well. Nick Murphy and Rhye deliver soulful appearances while Hundred Waters’ vocalist Nicole Miglis brings a distinct indie sound to "Surface". Innov Gnawa gives off a worldly vibe with his tribal chanting vocals on "Bambro Koyo". Bonobo masterfully blends atmospheric sound designs with house tempos, as well as layers of live instrumentation that are combined with electronic production. 

It's always impressive to see artists continually evolve and expand their talents throughout their career. We're excited to join Bonobo for the journey as he releases some of his strongest work to date with Migration. Enjoy!
