“Konfetti” is the stellar sounding debut single of Southern Sweden artist Nor. and it dropped today via Norwegian powerhouse Nora Collective.

Nor. draws inspiration ranging from classic soul artists such as Sam Cooke, to Bob Marley, via 90’s r’n’b such as Boyz II Men to a more updated sound of 2017 hip hop/r’n’b courtesy of producer Kastel.

“Lost In The Moment” is the first single from Darius’s debut album “Utopia”, out in Decberem on Savoir Faire’s new imprint Animal63. In the tradition of Alex Braxe and Fred Falke, filters are laid down on a slow-paced boogie rhythm. Like a melancholy mantra, a looped vocal sample repeats the title and perfectly captures the essence of the album: plaintive and poignant, lead by a kind of tear-filled joy.

Classically trained pianist and songwriter Josh Jacobson announces the release of his debut EP “First Light” along with tour dates in Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago. The five track collection includes his previous single “Fence”, as well as a new track “I Need You”, that’s hinged by a thunderous beat and plays to the fringes of electro-R&B.
