Laime – Track: Oga Boss

This track is called “Oga Boss”. It features two of the fastest rising afrobeat youngsters in Nigeria (Buju & Bad Boy Timz). Oga Boss has an afrobeat undertone but the verses are delivered like trap music. Basically the song was made when, myself, Buju and Bad Boy Timz were in the studio and reflecting on how employers sometimes delay or refuse to pay their employees and as they say.. the rest is history. If you like alternative Nigerian music, if you like afrobeat, if you are a fan of either Buju or Bad Boy Timz then you should listen to this song.

The Mandevilles – New Single: “Junkie”

Directed by Top Shotta, the visual sets its scene in Alexandra Township, South Africa; with every aspect from camera angles to wardrobe lending themselves to that of a classic hip hop video.

The new single is his first musical offering since his 2019 CASHMERE TEARS project, an intricate 10 track body of work which further cemented his position as one of the most unique creatives to come out of the UK with his powerful, progressive style of spoken word, hip-hop and alternative rap.

Luca Draccar Releases “No Sometimes Yes” EP

Berlin based Italian artist, DJ, and electronic music producer Luca Draccar has now released a four track EP titled “No Sometimes Yes”. Inspired by bipolarity and contradiction as a counterbalance, it is his fourth release on the Lush Point imprint. This nearly forty minute collection of rhythmically brisk techno tracks is set in a futuristic, sci-fi inspired soundscape where, Draccar says, “Electronic music plays the intermediary with supernatural entities.” Focusing on creating edgy progressive, deep house tracks, his “No Sometimes Yes” EP is a synthesis of dark electronica infused with daring technoscapes, musical symbolism and ambient grooves.
