Label: Mais Um Discos
Genre: World – South America – Brazil
Mixing Northeastern Brazilian rhythms, rock ‘n’ roll and romantic Brazilian ‘brega’ music with African influences such as 70s Senegalese guitar music and Congotronics, Siba is a man who joins the dots between his life, his culture and the rest of the world. Marrying his well-crafted and hard-earned lyricality with both new and old influences, ‘Avante’ sees Siba’s languorous vocal and sinuous guitar playing intertwine beautifully with tuba, vibraphone and drums to create a dynamic album of experimental ‘alt-tropical’ folk-rock.

Label: Tru Thoughts

In a welcome return for the inimitable London flow of Rodney P aka Riddimkilla, ‘Success’ sees the industry veteran dispatching the haters, with a brilliantly unshakable chorus brought to life by Harleighblu’s charismatic caramel tones; the track resembling a crash course from master to protégé in light of the steep upward trajectory of Harleighblu’s career.
