Krisy — Erotiquement Votre (Official Video)

 

Brussels, Belgium based singer & rapper Krisy (also known as De La Fuentes when producing & mixing) extends to us his heart and demonstrates his genuine infatuation for his secret lover on “Erotiquement Votre“, bringing his own singular style to the French rap scene.

Krisy anticipates a phone call among baby pink & salmon hues, dreaming of her facial features as she takes a sip from a glass of Rosé. Slow motion clips of her eating grapefruit & strawberries plays into the idea of her being comparable to fruit, tantalizing and sweet. With the utilization of panned out HD clips, the video focuses on distinguishing features of the face as he further conveys to us his intoxication. In touch with his feminine side, Krisy shows several scenes of him with flowers symbolizing his gentleness, while even incorporating a baby girl balloon into the scenes to further exude the way he would like to nurture & spoil her with love and affection.

Over a soft & sultry, low-fi like beat, lines like: “Miss, let me seduce you“, “I can talk to you because it suits me“, & “when I look at your face, I see the sky” only come to truly accentuate the deep intensity of his passion.

The visual for “Erotiquement Votre” is sure to be one of the most crispiest visuals that I have ever laid eyes on.

Interview: ALUMNIÌIRADIO Drops Episode 1 Of ‘Long Live The Fallen’

Austin, Texas based radio collective, ALUMNIÌIRADIO, is exploring new textures of sound while reinforcing the history of the ‘chopped & screwed’ genre. I was quickly able to sit down with the collective to dig a bit deeper and get more intimate so we may know who exactly they are and what they are here to accomplish in their journey.

Kyaira: When & why was the collective established?

Dominique Woodson: I started ALUMNIÌIRADIO by myself back in 2014 to have my own collective of talented individuals that are hungry to be great and overall on the same wavelength as well.

Kyaira: How did the collective come into form?

Dominique Woodson: In the beginning, Devante & I met through SoundCloud. He was the first official member that I recruited. Later on down the line, Cedrick was then initiated by the both of us together. Cedrick and I knew each other since we were kids and I always knew he was working as a rapper so I figured he would have something dope to actively contribute to our collaborative. A trinity is what we grew into and that was the birth of ALUMNIÌIRADIO.

Kyaira: What is the universal mission of ALUMNIÌIRADIO?

Dominique Woodson: ALUMNIÌIRADIO’s main objective is to spread love by completely pushing the envelope for greatness. The 3 IÌI’s are for Knowledge, Prosperity & Wisdom. I started ALUMNIÌIRADIO to present some songs that have allowed me to feel, songs that come with a nostalgic feel, or even songs that showed me the way through rough periods on my own personal journey. It’s like a release mechanism for me.

Dropping episode 1 of their 2nd season titled ‘Long Live The Fallen‘, Dominique, Cedrick & Devante master the concept of tapping into various feels & vibes, by gently touching on each panel of emotion associated with each track featured on the mix. Press play to catch a vibe. You won’t regret it. Be sure to check out other episodes on their Soundcloud link up above.

Eyedress — High Street Drive By (feat. Jess Connelly & Ankhten Brown)

If you haven’t heard of Eyedress, you definitely have some homework to do.

26-year old Manila, Phillipines based musician & producer, Idris Vicuña, also known as Eyedress, is serving us up a refreshing & alternative incorporation of sounds.  Meshing down-tempo beats, tranquil synths, and faded vocals, Eyedress constructs & manufactures unchanging ballads influenced by indie rock, Atari classics, distress, heartache, and hallucinogens — most of which a great deal of us can connect with.

High Street Drive By‘ reveals Idris speaking on his journey through a period of which he experienced divorce, getting kicked out of his own home, & even getting dropped from his then label, XL Records. Respectively, he was vulnerable enough to open up to his listeners about his hardship that normally, most would be too embarrassed or humiliated to share.  It was incredibly inspiring to read and absorb his story in that regard. We all experience times when things just seem to be crashing all around us, however it truly caught my attention realizing that he chose acceptance and proceeded to move forward, continuing to gift the world with undying hits.

After a series of trials and tribulations, Eyedress was then signed with London-based record label, Lex Records, in March of 2016, which you could only imagine the sense of newfound hope & contentment in association to the signing.

This song appearing on Eyedress‘ latest album  ‘Manila Ice’, which released June 2, 2017, is available on all major streaming platforms listed.

Children of Zeus — I Can’t Wait

Manchester based duo Children of Zeus (also known as KonnyKon and Tyler Daley) introduced to us their footprint on the British RnB/soul culture after appearing on Balamii Radio in 2017, based out of Southeast London. Upon listening, I was immediately captivated, as they remind me of nostalgic artists from childhood such as Raphael Saadiq, Jon B, Mos Def, De La Soul, Slum Village, and likings of the sort.
