Noraa – Sweet Summer Dreams

“How I love to hear this band/pass filter on vocals on the beginning of this song, always, sets the mood just right for me. Perfect intro to a full spectrum of frequencies that awaits you after. Vocals, chords, rhythm part, so deep and emotional, playing with delay on vocals are just as amazing as everything else, this one goes on repeat. ”

TAR1Q – bAd IntentIons

“A smooth and smooth melodic line is like a water surface, beautiful, web vocal and a harmonious combination of genres such as R&B and AFROBEATS. Music, which enters your body almost imperceptibly and remains with you nursing.” (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)

“Плавная и гладкая мелодическая линия словно водная гладь, красивый, вайбовый вокал и гармоничное сочетание таких жанров, как R&B и Afrobeats. Музыка, которая входит в ваше тело почти незаметно и остаётся с вами насвегда.”

SHUN x Monty Wells – Chasing Stars

“Beautiful transitions from the chorus to the verse, which throughout the track will not let you rest, so they are so emotional. Nostalgic waves Pop Rock from -shun and Monty Wells-, which leaves no one indifferent!” (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)

“Прекрасные переходы от припева до куплета, которые на протяжении всего трека не дадут вам передохнуть, настолько они эмоциональны исполнены. Ностальгические волны Pop Rock от -SHUN и Monty Wells-, который не оставляет никого равнодушным!”

The first steps into this future-retro pop-rock/rnb-song started with compiling background melodies from 80s Finnish rock influenced by some Central and South American tunes. From there, the song began to mold into its form with an intentionally contemporary production blended with 80s to early 90s elements.

After getting the track ready for vocals, the songwriting continued in the Netherlands by a talented topliner, Monty Wells. He created his characteristic and catchy “The Weeknd/Michael Jackson”-style lead vocals and lyrics. The final vocal arrangement was finished in Finland at Soulhouse Unit studio.

To us, the storyline follows a theme of warning about the dangers of getting lost or selling your soul in show business. Still, on the other hand, it gives confidence that taking the longer and a bit harder route often can pay off better—many first-alluring things can turn out to be just one big illusion. The song’s lighter side is simply having fun and taking chances: “chasing stars on boulevards” with friends.

Chasing Stars contains many secret “easter eggs” as tributes to the famous artists and their music styles that influenced SHUN’s music-making over the years (Billy Ocean, Lionel Richie/The Commodores, Lenny Kravitz, Michael Jackson, Timbaland, Phil Collins, among others). There is even a tiny part where the drum style was momentarily drawn from the early 2000s UK/garage (which maybe nobody notices =D). And finally, as the style was meant to be 2022 future-retro, some contemporary electro/pop production methods were included in the final fusion.

This SHUN song was mixed primarily with vintage gear this time, the main console being a uniquely modified Soundcraft SAC2000 analog radio station console (special thanks to a great Ukrainian-Finnish musician, Andre Solomko).

The mastering was done by Stuart Hawkes at Metropolis Studios, London.

Chasing Stars is a pop/rock/rnb- retro-contemporary-fusion with many elements and sides brought together!

M-Dot x Mary-eL – One Day at a Time

AV Allure – Save Your Love

“The combination of R&B and AFROBEAT in the new single -AV allure- in the very heart. Here is a very beautiful track with a rich atmosphere, a pleasant melody and the echoing of two vocal lines. A romantic track for two in love souls.” (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)

“Сочетание R&B и Afrobeat в новом сингле -AV Allure- бьёт в самое сердце. Перед вами очень красивый трек с насыщенной атмосферой, приятной мелодией и перекликание двух вокальных линий. Романтический трек для двух влюблённых душ.”

South London is home to a multiplex of talented artists, both past and present. Rising out of the coal-coloured concrete jungle we know as Lewisham — AV Allure might not be a name you’re too familiar with just yet. Fear not, you’re witnessing a superstar in the making.

Today, the rising R&B phenomenon has shared the visuals for his latest single, ‘Save Your Love’, as well as his highly-anticipated debut EP ‘King Of Hearts’. Tapping British-Nigerian vocalist Moelogo for the single, the pair conjure up a travelled whirlwind of R&B perfection.


The track also comes equipped with some cinematic visuals, courtesy of Jay Parpworth. For the shadowy, crimson-lit video, we catch AV traipse back and forth in blacked-out shades and colour-morphing suits. Musically, the track features a strong Afrobeat undercurrent, counterbalanced by a timeless ‘90s R&B template. With one future hit in the bank, ‘Save Your Love’ is a great introduction to the ‘King Of Hearts’ EP.

Another highlight on the tracklist is the OSH-assisted banger ‘Talk To Me’. Interpolating the Jodeci classic ‘Come & Talk To Me’, the R&B slow jam is currently bubbling just under ¼ of million streams on Spotify alone and has become a fan favourite.

Speaking on ‘King Of Hearts’, the South London native said: “’King Of Hearts’ is the story of good and bad love. Its R&B entrance sets the tone of pain whilst the swings bring in a more confident sexy vibe showing growth. The project closes with a sweet hybrid sound of summer and winter textures as Afro meets Bashment and R&B. The project represents moving forward and becoming a greater version of yourself.”


AV has also collaborated with ex-So Sold Crew member A!MS on his 2021 album ‘Offshore’, and Akelle from WSTRN on the A!MS-produced number ‘iLIKE’. Also featured on ‘King Of Hearts’, ‘iLIKE’ sounds like a roof-breaking banger. Speaking on the track, Clash claimed: “‘iLIKE’ charms listeners with a sun-kissed production, indulging in Spanish guitars and sweet vocals that reminisce over a 90’s R&B era,” high praise for AV from one of the UK’s most respected music magazines.

The South East London native is also a songwriting powerhouse in his own right, writing tunes for the likes of Deno, Tinie Tempah, Da Beatfreakz, Swarmz, Loick Essien, and many more!

With a strong foundation to ground him and a clear love for the music scene, ‘King Of Hearts’ is just the beginning for AV…
