RAGZ ORIGINALE – EN ROUTE [VIDEO]

Ragz Originale’s solo debut ‘En Route‘ was so markedly different that the visual had a lot to live up to.  Thankfully, director Taz Tron Delix’ video is fittingly brilliant.  Bathed in Ragz’ signature pink/purple hew, the track’s plodding bassline and pitched-affected vocals are accompanied by a series of bright, striking vignettes.  Stream below via YouTube.

LOYLE CARNER – YESTERDAY’S GONE

Ever since debut EP ‘A Little Late‘, South London’s Loyle Carner has always had a knack for intimately heartfelt story-telling.  Nearly three years and a major label record deal later and, thankfully, it seems as though nothing has changed.  ‘Yesterday’s Gone’ is every bit as endearing as singles ‘No CD‘, ‘The Isle of Arran‘ and…
