For your edgy R&B late night exotic vibes, Check out Rayana Jay’s latest release, The Morning After, which is the follow up to Rayana’s 2016 release Sorry About Last Night. .. “The project includes a lone feature from Maryland rapper Innanet James, and production from ROMderful (Soulection), Mikos Da Gawd, Elujay, Kev Choice, The Kount (Fete Records), and more.  While Sorry About Last Night ultimately detailed the turmoil of a break-up, Morning After is the clarity that comes after.

Miles Bonny – Let It Out EP

Delighted to hear this new Miles Bonny EP! Let it Out is short but sweet and filled with a dreamy batch of savory treats for your mood based groove. “The Let It Out EP, released on Brooklyn’s Bastard Jazz Recordings, acts as the culmination of such an intimate and organic journey. Recorded by Miles in Kansas City during a time he was experiencing the oft-turbulent tasks of true adulthood, the record focus on the life of a young father, underpinned by how we often bottle up difficult emotions and creativity when the pressures of today’s complicated world reach fever pitch. Brimming with emotive, intimate lyrics from Miles spread amidst Ta-Ku’s soul-drenched beat work and syrupy future grooves, the EP will hit close to home for anyone whose daily lives calls for a much needed dose of personal reflection and chilled-out decompression. ” 

K- Sparks – Flipside

Take a listen to Flipside produced by Es-K, Ezeroh1 & K. Sparks. It showcases John Culbreath on the trumpet and K- sparks coasting the melodic wave with expressions in poetic artistry… It’s a pretty smooth tune and makes it’s debut as the first single from the K Sparks  forthcoming album entitled Urban Culture available now for Pre-Order. “The song discusses the various positive and always negative alternatives in life. But most importantly always placing things into perspective.” Enjoy~

The Bare Dusty Beat Tape

Got a couple of exciting releases from Millennium Jazz over the last few months that i haven’t had a chance to post. Case in point, The Bare Dusty Beat Tape is surely filling my abstract instrumental fix for the day…. and probably the rest of the week. Packed with loads of what i consider Monday morning and weekday vibes,  I suggest you stop by bandcamp and stream theses moods…chill beats, electronic, experimental, hip hop jazzy calm boom bap~ ” This split tape is the product of both beat makers deciding to put together a joint project in a scrapbook fashion, concentrating on capturing a vibe over technical tweaks and the contrasting styles sown together.  The Bare Dusty Beat Tape will hopefully be the first of many back to back beats to come from the MJM label mates. There’s even talk of a Bare Dusty Beat tape pt.2 since Dusty Ohms and Bare Beats worked so well together. Time will tell!”
