Marius Billgobenson – Wait and See (Spotify)

“A refreshing take on some sweet summertime Jazzy grooves. The fuzzed out Organ sounds so good. Very well produced by top notch talent. Balanced and matured. ”

Stockholm, Sweden-based singer, songwriter and guitarist Marius Billgobenson’s seeks to spread unity, compassion, understanding, hope and love in latest album offering ‘The Spirit Love’ - A refreshing, soul-stirring eleven song infusion of jazz, blues, pop, R&B and afro-beat that captures dynamic rhythms and vocal sounds indigenous to his homeland of the Congo. Whilst bending and blending the lines between genres, the globally conscious album also serves to empower and support his work as a compassionate and concerned citizen of the world, and strives to bridge the gap between deep-rooted cultural divides.

Speaking on the album, Marius explains “The Spirit Love is all about the way we experience the feeling of being alive, being ourselves and offering our unique gifts to others. We remember the life source of energy in The Spirit Love, because you exist just as a consequence of love. All of the positive impact you have had in loving and strengthening your loved ones may reveal memories that make you feel strong and happy.”

The album comprises eleven eclectic and deeply personal tracks that are grounded in his own words “in the completeness of gratitude in my heart”, whilst exploring love in it’s many different facets, with the goal of inviting and motivating more “Love Spreaders” for change.

Having written the most part of the album himself, Marius also called upon the musical talent of guitarist and hitmaker Paul Brown to produce both leading single “Joy” and “Wait and See,” as well as employing the production prowess of urban jazz chart topper Chris ‘Big Dog’ Davis across 6 other tracks.

Abbacaxi – More Than I Need (Spotify)

“This is exactly the music that you turn on repeat wherever you are. Smooth, exciting Deep House & Nu-Disco rhythm, in which wandering vocals help you plunge in an amazing five-minute romantic journey.”

“Это именно та музыка, которую включаешь на бесконечный повтор где бы ты ни был. Ровный, возбуждающий ритм Deep House & Nu-disco, в котором блуждающий вокал помогает погрузиться на пять минут в удивительное романтическое путешествие.”

Irish multi-instrumentalist Abbacaxi (Thomas Garnett) has served a long and proper musical apprenticeship. Now he is stepping out on his own. He has a fresh and heartfelt sound that brings positive vibrations and good times. It draws on his love of jazz, funk and proper songwriting, harks back to a time when dance music was made by real musicians, but comes with very modern dynamics.

Abbacaxi contemplates the need for simplicity with his new single 'More Than I Need' which glides from funky 70s Disco to cool classic House.

"I wrote this track because I was getting tired of the unpredictability of certain things in my life, which had great value. Over time I started to feel that perhaps less is more. Maybe these things weren't as important as I initially thought, and life could be just as good without them."

Hailing inspiration from the wonky feel of old-school disco, Abbcaxi add’s simplistic liquid bass lines with a nod to artists of the 90s like St Germain and Laurent Garnier.

Abbacaxi is an intentional misspelling of the Portuguese word for pineapple. With that fruit's sweet a A and juicy associations, and the extra 'b' a subtle nod to Abba's sing-song disco sounds, you have a big hint at what to expect from Thomas's music. Though his fun, effervescent character is reflected in his music, he is just as able to break your heart with his melancholic acoustic guitar and neo-soul vocals.

Musicians as versatile as Abbacaxi don't come along too often, so strap in and enjoy the ride.

I felt a real sense of freedom working on this song. It was really fresh and exciting to work with a new palette of sounds alongside an awesome collective of musicians that let me do my thing.”

She goes on to add: “The melody came instinctively and led me into this unresolved feeling of unrequited love, We’ve all been there – when the pain of waiting to hear from someone, leaves you in limbo and can have a maddening and numbing effect on your mind.
