Jermaine Elliot is moving fast a furious with his soulful R&B prowess. ‘100 BAND$’ is a clean and genuine blend of slick beats and Elliot’s refined vocal chops, giving you plenty of inscentive to go and check out his full Send For Me album.

London based future soul artist Jodie Abacus has been described as Thundercat meets Stevie Wonder. His new single “You’re Crazy” receives the remix treatment from Rome based producer MadD3E (who has caused a stir as of late with his original tracks/remixes), he infuses the soulful track with a bumping bassline and a festival ready sound.

Posed as a spotlight for rappers and vocalists stamped with the SOULECTION seal of approval, the recent launch of the brand’s Black Label imprint gives the North American powerhouse a chance to refine an otherwise on/off run of release from the brand throughout 2018. Cut from the label’s inaugural EP, LA-collective Hablot Brown take center stage alongside multi-talented Londoner Maths Time Joy for ‘Reason’ – a surefire sign that SOULECTION is back on track. Lucious guitar licks and impeccable vocal finesse dress this soulful slice of instrumentally refined R&B, giving a pretty solid indicator that Black Label isn’t to be marked as a half measure venture from Joe Kay’s gang.

West Philly crooner Pink Sweat$ is wasting little time making his mark on the internet. Just a short breath from striking solo debut ‘Honesty,’ we find the soulful newcomer showcasing those impeccable chops once again for the blissfully stripped back ‘No Replacing You.’ At this frequency and consistency, we couldn’t be more excited to hear what the mysterious promise of ‘Volume One’ brings.

At a time when the vast majority of contemporary R&B newcomers are playing the safe game, there’s something refreshing in the approach of West Philly crooner Pink Sweat$. A simple, guitar-driven cut guided by the North American newcomer’s ridiculous vocal dexterity, ‘Honestly’ is one of the purest and most emotively encapsulating debuts we’ve heard in a minute. This is definitely an artist to be keeping close tabs on if unscathed soul is your bag.

Australian trio The Goods are back with a new single called “Faster” and we’re stoked to have the premiere. “Faster” is the first look at their forthcoming Make Your Move EP, a sound described as hip-hop, space funk, and soul. The Goods, building off a massive couple of years that saw them feature in top-tier mediums like Complex, MTV, and Vice, are set to drop their full EP via Brooklyn-based imprint Bastard Jazz this Friday, April 13th. A dynamic full LP is rumored to be on the way, with the trifecta of artists tapping into their roots as improving musicians and live performers.
