Dupont Brass – Homecoming (Spotify)

“-Homecoming- performed by -Dupont Brass- combines elements of Soul music and funk, where pronounced R&B and Hip-Hop draws an unpredictable rhythmic pattern, which makes the composition more energetic and memorable.”

“-Homecoming- в исполнении -Dupont Brass- сочетает в себе элементы Soul-музыки и фанка, где ярко выраженный R&B и Hip-Hop рисует непредсказуемый ритмический рисунок, что делает композицию более энергичной и запоминающейся.”

On “Homecoming” DuPont Brass takes us on a trip down memory lane. They set the mood over a bed of mellow, romantic R&B. The music is laced with a sentiment of love and desire - and while the singer is pursuing a long lost lover, he is ultimately looking to recapture so much more than that. The incomparable feeling of youth. The freedom of possibility. And the chance to have it all before we’re too old to enjoy it. Mixing horn ensembles is an art form in and of itself, and the work done here is akin to the Mona Lisa. But unlike Leonardo da Vinci’s work, there is no
doubt that this song will leave a smile on your face. The band brings the song home with a guitar solo that sings out - reminiscent of great R&B solos brought to us by the Isley Brothers. Take a listen and share with a friend - you will surely find that the love is contagious.

DuPont Brass is a unique, soulful, brass ensemble hailing from the D.C. Metropolitan Area. Originally composed of five music majors from Howard University trying to raise money for tuition during the Christmas season, they have now grown to a 8-piece ensemble consisting of brass, a rhythm section, and vocalists. Gaining popularity from playing at local Metro stations, DuPont Brass started out professionally playing for weddings, banquets, and other private events in the surrounding area. Thanks to the foundation laid in their earlier years, DuPont Brass has had the opportunity to perform in conjunction with the D.C. Jazz Festival and on the prestigious Kennedy Center Millennium Stage. Consistently touching the hearts of the community with their heartwarming testimony, DuPont Brass has been featured on WPFW's “Live at Five” three times and featured in the Washington Post Newspaper five times. Through their training in both classical and contemporary styles, the young group has developed a sound that mixes varied genres of music, including jazz, hip-hop, and R&B. Their latest release entitled Eclectic Soul is a testament to that sound. Overall, the mission of DuPont Brass is to uplift the spirits of people with their music, not just in the DMV area, but across the world.

CARDS & SITA – Blue Automobile (Spotify)

New CARDS & SITA collab, "Blue Automobile," is a chill, beachy indie-soul song with lush arrangements reminiscent of 70s era Philly Soul & Bossa Nova. Wah-wah guitar solos and orchestral sections weave in and out of the space between the vocals and the drums to create a dreamy atmosphere that leaves the listener feeling transported to whatever world they feel like going to in their mind.

Upper Reality – I Can (Video)

“Don’t miss “I Can” from Upper Reality. A light, pleasant song dedicated to the strong feeling of love. Taken out from a very fresh six-track EP in Alternative / Indie R&B style.”

Upper Reality grew up in Frisco, TX. hER life has taken many twists and turns, from getting a Bachelor’s in Economics at UT Austin to spending a year in Cape Town, South Africa, to finally being based in Los Angeles for the past 2 years. Her sound reflects that journey—an sensual electro-soul museum of Dallas neo-soul keys and synths, Cape Town house-jazzy percussion, LA indie grooves and sample flips, and flourishes of inspiration from artists running the gamut from Sade, to the Doors, to Roy Ayers, to Phoelix and more.

She creates from the burnt-out-overachiever perspective, soothing the mind and soul and reminding listeners that others’ validation is not worth destroying yourself over, and you are enough just because you are.


“Stepping cinematic, introducing quickly to an abundant emotional vocal performance surrounded by angelic harmonic notes in a minimal way and hard beats, NOHA SARÉ manages to hypnotize us deeply to her impressive vocal capabilities, which could not be able to express in such a mesmerizing way without the brilliant elegant music layering. ”

Talk To Me is about different stages of healing. It’s about facing your own fears and the attempt to turn them into strengths. The eye-catching video alongside the song, is directed by the 24 year old director, performer and visual artist (& best friend) Izak Berman. Izak & Noha have known eachother for a long time and have developed a special bond over the years, both in their collaborations and personal life.

Noha Saré is a 24 year old singer who stands out for her powerful, yet sensitive voice. Drawing on various genres, her music can not be classified into one specific category; Noha’s music tends to swing like her moods. She loves to play with contradictions in her personality and likes to dive into them and explore them. Both in her music and in her photography and videography. Her promising debut single Talk To Me is a good example of this: a soulful, authentic sound lined with elements of alternative R&B and electro pop.

Born in Amsterdam and raised by parents who are both artists, Noha Saré grew up surrounded by art. From an early age, she and her brother Marius (who is a multi-instrumentalist and composer) started to perform and make music together. They collaborate on songwriting and Marius co-produces her music together with producer Tom Bachmann. Over the last years an inspiring collaboration and strong friendship has evolved between the three of them.

Blue Psyche – Common Theme (Spotify)

“Blue Psyche with their new single Common Theme under Peace Dragon Records imprint, introduce us through their early funky vibes to more loungish atmosphere, with an elegant minimal groove and sensual abundant vocals, music that flows softly in a good laid back mood. ”

The music of London based psychedelic indie band Blue Psyche takes you on a journey of colourful astral sonics that resonate with the dark and experimental ambience of Trip-Hop.

With influences from the likes of Morcheeba and Portishead, their' debut single, "Common Theme" emerges from the obscurity of trip hop, mutating in vivid harmony, warm, reverb drowned vocals with florid guitar and keys, making the distinctive sound of Blue Psyche.

Celest Lamberti, lead singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer paired with Otto Kampa, saxophonist, drummer, and multi-instrumentalist, and Flynn Mulcahy, lyricist, poet and bass player make for a great listen. Theo Hayes also features on this song, playing keys.

Mathien – So (If I Can’t Have Your Love) (Spotify)

“Mathien and Sam Hudgens with their new single -So (If I Can't Have Your Love)- under WURLITZER CROWLEY imprint invite us into a lush groove of funky beats and harmonies, with vocals performance been soulful and elegant, hitting in the right places both in music layering and heart. While it gives you a laid back listening experience, not misses parts that you will feel the energy inside you to move and groove. ”

Sam had made this beat in 2017 and played it for me during a session in Evanston. He was staying with his mom for a week and didn't have anything but a guitar and his laptop when he made it, so the entire beat was dozens of layers of nylon strings over a drum machine loop. Even in its early sketches it was so good, I told him I wanted it but it seemed like he was writing to it. Fast forward to this September he stopped by my studio to record some ideas, and he ended up playing the beat for me again, it was exactly the same, "I've been stuck on this beat for years now" he said.

After he left I wrote "If I can't have your love" to it and sent him a demo of it that night, and he called me freaking out (happy). The next day he came back at 6:30 am to help finish it. we decided Sam would sing the first verse and I would do the second, but we're both on all 3 of the hooks. Then he played his Sax on it. I wrote a little instrumental bridge section to break up the loop a little, and added some additional synth and guitar/bass... I figured I'd send it over to Brooklyn so Devon Yesberger (Cory Wong, Lohaith, Caleb Hawley,Grace Kelly) could play piano on it. It came back and that piano part you hear that opens the track was actually at the end of what he sent but it was so striking I threw it on the front. Took 3 years but the track is finished.
