This time dropping an EP from Ukrainian producer Koloah, who delivers 3 tracks of strong rhythmic elements, solid synth work, loopy vocals and deep bass tones. You should find something to like on here, whether it's the rolling starter "In The Beginnin'", the hyped up stomp of "I'm In Love With U" (our fav) or the more relaxed considerations within title track "Love".  Quality as always!  Free D/L with a Tweet.

Old Soul

If like me you get the urge for some drop beatz now and again, you could get bang on point with North Carolina based producer L’Orange top quality tribute project to Billie Holiday. Free Download go grab it!

(L’Orange says)
“Billie Holiday is my muse. Her creative vision and stylistic integrity have influenced both my music and my writing. When I decided to work on this project, I wanted to approach it with respect for her music. I wanted these remixes to be both inspired by and dedicated to the life and craft of one of the most innovative and soulful singers of all time. Each track is designed to represent a significant part of Billie Holiday’s life.”
