Lo Boii – Save Us (Spotify)

“A soft and gentle voice with a touch of jazz, it's like a cream pie with cinnamon, perfect and luscious. A song which will help you to relax in the late evening. Now let's close our eyes and feel like sail along a calm river like a paper boat. ”

“Мягкий и нежный голос с нотками джаза, это как - кремовый пирог с корицей. И он идеальный, не приторный. Это то, что поможет расслабиться поздним вечером, возможно вдвоем. А теперь закроем глаза и плывем по спокойной реке пытаясь спасти нас.”

With instrumentally brilliant production from Aalias —co-producer of the Grammy-winning Eminem and Rihanna single "The Monster" —and shining falsetto runs from Corey Latif —a two-time Grammy-nominated songwriter who’s written for Usher, Musiq Soulchild, Faith Evans, and more— Lo Boii is a project made with soul from the ground up.

Lo Boii’s previously released singles “Floor Seats” and “Sweeter,” which blend faithful nods to the pair's influences with a distinct, surprising new flavor. Tracks like “Chakra” shine a light on the pair’s blend of old-school funk licks and soulful vocal runs with a wholly original take on modern electronica. Layered sheets of sound combine with an underlying steadiness to form a masterfully crafted mosaic, and gems like their electrofunk cover of “She Drives Me Crazy” by Fine Young Cannibals put Latif’s falsetto chops on full display.

Following on from the release of his highly-praised EP ‘B4ULUVME’ earlier this year, as well as his hit Kevin Gates collaborations ‘BURNXONE’ and ‘4T$’, emerging Bay Area rapper Tree Thomas delivers his warm and heartfelt new single ‘YUCALLME’.

Produced by STARIMUSIC, ‘YUCALLME’ sees the artist embark on a more smooth and RnB-inspired direction. Working with all live instrumentation, this sweet and captivating new cut showcases him in a whole new and tender light, adding yet another layer to his bold and enticing persona.

Speaking about his new release, he said, “YUCALLME is probably the realest song I’ve ever made. It came from a real moment and real emotion I had, and luckily I was in the studio when it happened. I got an unexpected phone call and it immediately brought back unneeded and wanted memories, especially since at the time I was mentally in a different space and starting a new relationship. STARI had just emailed me some beats the night before and I just so happened to be listening to them in the studio when the call happened. It was like the words and melody came to me instantly and all I had to do was walk into the booth afterwards.”

Tree Thomas is a memorable and interesting recording artist with dynamic R&B inspired melodies and dope lyrics. He constantly promotes a positive outlook on life and taking risks. When Tree is not making music we love, you can find him amongst the TREEs in nature or getting his hands dirty on a farm with Chef. “2020 has been a crazy year, and being able to get away from it and tap back in with nature is a blessing and helps silence a lot of unneeded noise. I feel like I’m in heaven when I’m surrounded by trees”. Tree is no stranger to stardom with his professional basketball success and eye opening Kevin Gates singles so far on his way to becoming one of the biggest artists in the game, LITERALLY. With his Godly physique, standing 6’8, he’s set on staying hungry, focused, and determined to set the precedent for artists making the transition from sports to music.

Justy – Cool (Spotify)

“Don't feel pretty cool? We have the solution just play the new song "Cool" from Justy which incorporates traditional jazz elemements and instrumental hip grooves, all blened together with soft soulful vocals and an elegant atmosphere around. A bright song which make you breath and cool down.”

-Nagamag.com

Rising jazz-hop R&B artist JUSTY joins the Village and brings her new single "Cool" to the table.

The Brooklyn-born, Staten Island-raised creator began writing music at 12 years old. Fast forward 10 years and the transparent singer/songwriter has blossomed into a unique and promising force. Inspired by the works of artists such as J Dilla, Amy Winehouse, NoName, Anderson Paak, and Lauryn Hill, Justy's style and sound continues to evolve while incorporating traditional jazz elements into her music.

In 2018, Justy's refreshing sound caught the eye of British music powerhead Kwame Kwaten (also of D-Influence) who brought her on for a two single project where she penned the notable tracks "Try"(2018) and "L8R" (2019). Her debut project Soul Food, the Precede blends genres to deliver a lyrically impactful portrayal of love, loss, insecurities, and ambition. She's seen praise from notable publications like Mixcloud, Earmilk, The 405 and more.

This self proclaimed "old soul" continues to showcase her maturity and growth as an independent artist with an enlightening new project. Upcoming single "Cool" follows her most recent release "Expectations," and will be part of a forthcoming album due out next year.

"nothing but cool positive vibes" - Earmilk

"late night joint that blends soulful vocals with hip-hop sounding bits and pieces"- Sign This Kid

New single "Cool" is a refreshing acoustic led track that features jazz trumpet, R&B style percussion, and stylistically layered vocals that draw you in instantly. "Cool" is exactly how it sounds - it's low-key in all the right ways and effortlessly composed. This single serves as a reminder to stay true to who you are.

On the single JUSTY shares, "'Cool' is a record that embodies a sense of acceptance despite the facade the world may present to you. When actress Eartha Kitt noted that compromising would in turn mean to lose one's own sense of self, she hit on this feeling of choosing reality over false pretenses. For me, "Cool" represents just that. No matter how much we outwardly portray things or how they're portrayed to us, reality will always be reality, and that's cool."

Dax – I Need A Break (Video)

“I Need A Break” from Dax, is a heartbreak song about things he has been through off the second EP “I’ll Say It For You”.

Lyrics:
Intro:
Love is a drug that I can’t quit
It’s destroying me

I sit and cry my room
my hearts been broken
suffocating feels like I’m choking
I don’t know what to do
I’m just praying that this pain goes away drinking taking shots to the face
how you love me if you’re always playing games
want to leave but I feel trapped inside a cage I just think I need a break
I

How’d you do this
we were supposed to live in perfect Harmony
I got half of you you got all of me
Miscommunication girl just talk to me
how you let it get to this
how you let my friend hit
if there’s no loyalty girl there’s no relationship
yeah
so I think I’m going to have to take a break
So I think I’m gonna have to take a break

I sit and cry my room
my hearts been broken
suffocating feels like I’m choking
I don’t know what to do
I’m just praying that this pain goes away drinking taking shots to the face
how you love me if you’re always playing games
want to leave but I feel trapped inside a cage I just think I need a break
I

This is stupid
don’t start crying now after you lose him had my heart then you went an abused it all my scary dreams have become Lucid my heart is scattered in many pieces broken I think it’s bleeding
numb I have no feeling

I sit and cry my room
my hearts been broken
suffocating feels like I’m choking
I don’t know what to do
I’m just praying that this pain goes away drinking taking shots to the face
how you love me if you’re always playing games
want to leave but I feel trapped inside a cage I just think I need a break
I
I just think I need a break I
I just think I need a break I
I just think I need a break I
I just think I need a break

I sit and cry my room
my hearts been broken
suffocating feels like I’m choking
I don’t know what to do
I’m just praying that this pain goes away
Pain goes away

It’s Dax

Soto Interview on Nagamag.com

Soto
Interview

R&B


Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Soto:
Jazz, R&B, Funk, Soul, Neo-Soul, Hip-hop. New to the UK Jazz scene, Soto is a trio born out of Brighton with a foot in the doors of Jazz, R&B, Funk & Soul. Blending intricate rhythms and unique melodies, their feel is both a tribute to the scene, and something new altogether.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Soto:
Soto aim to make their audiences smile and groove with their work; something which undeniably helps this is the chemistry between the three founding members. Having all met in their first year at medical school, music was initially something of a side-hustle, but as the years passed it became more and more an integral to them as individuals and as a collective. Now, with their time at university drawing to a close, and a debut EP online, there'll be at least a few heads wondering what will be coming next from these guys.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Soto:
The feeling that first connected each of us to music is re-experienced on a regular basis. There is a deeply moving experience that arises when hearing the work of artists that touch us, and this similarly is something that is felt when we connect musically as a collective or as individuals. Music is possibly the most significant bringer of joy in any of our lives, which is why we are so determined - even with careers as doctors ready to begin - to make this a central part of our future. A life without music would always feel empty in a way.


Nagamag:
What do YOU enjoy most about writing and playing your music?

Soto:
We are all genuinely dedicated to the musical journey that we're on together. There's nothing better than when we meet for band practice and one of us says 'I've been working on this recently - what do you think?' and plays something beautiful. Many of our songs have come from one person bringing an idea forward for us to jam with, or quite literally just appearing from jams. This makes the process of writing so fun, and something we always look forward to. Similarly, what could be more fun than bringing music into a live setting? We love to improvise and leave lots of room for our songs to be different each time they are played so we can fully express ourselves musically any time we meet - we think of music as a conversation between the three of us and any listeners that may be present.


Nagamag:
Where do you see yourselves going musically?

Soto:
We hope to continue to challenge ourselves. We are always trying to explore new themes, try new things and push each other more and more musically, and this is something we hope to keep going. What we aim to do is continue writing music and hopefully entertaining people with our work. We would love to carve our a career in music, and we are so driven to this that we hope we're fortunate enough to just get that break that we need to make this viable. Whatever happens though, we want to enjoy every step of the way and be present in this journey, wherever it may go.


Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?

Soto:
Celeste "Both Sides of The Moon"


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?

Soto:
Prime Panda "State Your Business"
