KeithCharles Spacebar — Thank You, Tracee Ellis Ross (Official Video)

Come take a swim with LITTLE PISCES BABY.

Atlanta producer and rapper, aka former member of Awful Records, KeithCharles Spacebar, did it on us again with ‘Thank You, Tracee Ellis Ross‘, reinforcing his exclusive imprint on Atlanta’s underground sound.

The bridged duality between Alicia Keys’ legendary ‘Feeling U, Feeling Me (Interlude)‘ and Prophet Posse’s ‘Game F*cked Up‘ enables us to tap into a new expanse of musical awareness. KeithCharles makes this tricky concept look & sound like child’s play, amidst his impeccable producing ability.

The visual for ‘Thank You, Tracee Ellis Ross‘ takes us through some reminiscent and nostalgic Southern feels, showing KCSB riding in a slab, relishing and appreciating favorable memories, along with the occasional flashes of ever so graceful Tracee Ellis Ross, putting significance on the authentic allure following the vision.

Be sure to check out more of KeithCharles Spacebar on Apple Music, Spotify & other major streaming services.

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.

This classic 70bpm jam is guaranteed to have you bopping your head. Their melodic and intriguing voices combined with the smooth layering of instruments are a perfect way to enter this sun-filled summer ahead.

I Can’t Wait” appears on their latest EP titled “The Story so Far…” which is available for streaming on Apple Music and Spotify. Be sure to check it out in all of its mastered glory.

“Nostalgia”- Rj Tha Guru ft FreeBxll Will (prod. tredyboi1hunna)

Nostalgia has finally arrived!

Rj Tha Guru of NoDom$ highly anticipated track featuring FreeBxll Will just dropped ! Produced by tredyboi1hunna, this song will have you reminiscent on the one that got away, perfect for this Valentine’s Day.

For about 4 months these two have had this gem under wraps waiting to be released with the rest of Rj Tha Guru’s newest project “LoveGame$”, also released on Feb. 14, 2018. FreeBxll Will came through with the hook, setting the melodic tone for the song. This made it easy for Rj to follow up with his lyrics, inspired by personal experience.

With the cover art inspired by Rj’s personal experience also, photographer Divine of Divine Productions creatively took it upon herself to go out and photograph a local park in Detroit, Michigan, to help replicate the sense of “nostalgia” that 4th Ave Park in Rj’s hometown of Bethlehem, PA always seemed to give him.
