This is Lema, Saint Ronil, Kyara Shereen – U (Spotify)

“Tearing all conceivable patterns vocal passages, the general dynamics and energetic pace easily sneaks up ants. Quality R & B at its best manifestation.”

“Разрывающие все мыслимые и немыслимые шаблоны вокальные пассажи, общая динамика и энергичный темп с лёгкостью пробирает до мурашек. Качественное R&B в лучшем его проявление.”

Elvis Vierbergen (ThisIsLema) is an international DJ/Producer born in Congo in 1993. At the age of 2, Elvis got adopted by a Dutch family and has lived in The Netherlands ever since. The name ThisIsLema has an important background story for Elvis which is also the reason he decided to use this as his artist name. As Elvis got adopted, together with his sister, she (at the age of 2) kept saying ‘’Lema’’ after the adoption. As his adoption parents assumed, he then must have been named Lema. However, at a later age they found out Lema was actually the name of their father and Elvis was his real name. As a respect to his ancestry he quickly decided that ThisIsLema would be the name to go by.

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.

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.”

-Nagamag.com

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.

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.
