JESSE JAMES SOLOMON – CITY LIGHTS

With an EP expected to arrive this Summer, Jesse James Solomon gives us a taste of what’s to come with ‘City Lights’.  It’s a slow-burning, contemplative track, with Solomon treading a thin line between stream of consciousness and carefully considered precision.  Stream a snippet below via SoundCloud, click here to download in full via iTunes.

RAYSH – ANY GIVEN TIME

After impressing with the understated brilliance of ‘JUS 4 U‘, Raysh returns with a new track featuring A.B’ Noiré & L Martin.  Ricky Ramsay’s production on ‘Any Given Time’ feels as though influenced by The Streets, be it the off-beat rough lead synth or the vocals on the hook.  The track, according to Raysh, is about “giving into…
