Fresh Sounds | Jess Glynne – ‘Right Here’

Fusing the raw emotion of soul with the disco-tinged nights of pop music, Jess Glynne’s new single “Right Here” is summery soundtrack.

Known for her vocal collabs with Clean Bandit and Route 94, Jess’ new single is a solid solo debut that will be released on July 16th on Atlantic Records.

While she’s helped make some great hits, this new track is a beautiful soul story that you’ll want to listen to several times. Yeah, it’s good stuff. :)

Slo-Mo Soul | D’Angelo – ‘Spanish Joint (Vestalus Edit)

London-based producer, Vestalus, has put a refreshing housey vibe to D’Angelo’s classic soul infused cut, “Spanish Joint.”

Whereas the original (which you can’t help but to love) has an upbeat jazzy vibe, this new edit from Vestalus takes a slo-mo approach.

Albeit, it’s still considerably funky, this edit enhances the original vibe and adds a sultry late-night appeal.

Soulful Vibes | Sam Smith – ‘Lay Me Down (Todd Edwards Vocal Mix)’

SamSmith24100012-Custom-Name-720x349Remember Disclosure’s hit release “Latch” and those soulfully haunting vocals of Sam Smith?  I mean seriously, how couldn’t you? It’s such an amazing track and I still listen to it on a daily basis. However, back then I was under the assumption that Sam Smith was a moniker for Sam Sparro, but Sam Smith is actually a rising soul singer from the UK.

Having been featured on Disclosure’s hit “Latch” really put his name in the spotlight, and his breakout release “Lay Me Down” has received much acclaim. The beautiful, yet simple, piano chords allow the vocals of Sam Smith to rise to new heights and reach the depths of your soul. Surely this track is a tearjerker.

The original is something that I can’t get enough of, but the new Todd Terry Vocal Mix is quite impressive. The remix gives the song a vibe that seems more like “Latch” and it takes the soulful vocals to a happier mood.

So if you’re not in the mood for crying and reflecting, then listen to this soulful vocal mix. But if you choose to (which I highly recommend) get lost in the raw emotion of Sam Smith’s vocals, then give “Lay Me Down” a listen.

♥ | Nick Waterhouse – ‘Say I Wanna Know’ [The Song From the Acura ILX Commercial]

Most people around me know that I’m a huge fan of the 40s, especially the films and the style. I just love the timeless clothing and I truly admire the classy vibe that women and men exuded. Those guys truly knew how to rock a suit, which is probably why till this day I just go mad crazy for a man wearing a suit (or 40s/50s inspired clothing.)

I’m a junkie for the fashion and the classic films of that era, but I also love the music of the 40s (big band + swing) and I love the soul music from the 50s. So when I saw the Acura ILX Commercial the other day, I decided it was time to finally look up that song.

The commercial came out months ago, so I’m sure you’ve seen it. But did you know who the song was by? Well if you didn’t, then let me tell you about a guy named Nick Waterhouse. He’s this soul & R&B singer that sings with a 50s inspired style, and his song “Say I Wanna Know” is featured in the Acura commercial.

It didn’t take me too long to find it, but now that I’ve found it…I can’t stop listening to it! I love just snapping my fingers and grooving the 50s sound. I usually hate when modern day artists try to pay homage or do music with an old school vibe, but Nick Waterhouse gets a stamp of approval; he knows exactly what he is doing.

I love the commercial too!
