    Leeds-based trio Gotts Street Park shares a new single with Pip Millett “Changes My Way”, ahead of a release of a new EP “Volume Two”. Their music fuse soul, hip-hop, r’n’b, and jazz, and this wonderful mix we can expect from the forthcoming record. “Changes My Way” is a slow tempo soul track with the beautiful, tender, and soothing voice of Pip Millett. Another great song after the last single “Everything” featuring Rosie Lowe, another classic in their catalog. Gotts Street Park is like the modern-day in-house band, in the style of legendary studios like Stax in Memphis or Muscle Shoals in Alabama, where songs were created and recorded from…

    Thijsenterprise release a second single “Sketchy” from his forthcoming album “Lahringen”

    Thijsenterprise release a second single “Sketchy” from his forthcoming album “Lahringen” coming out via Rucksack Records. As my first reaction to the title of this track, I thought of a sketch of drawing, as something rough and incomplete. Something that gives us a general idea but without many details. But after watching a homemade video to the track made by Thijsenterprise, a similar idea came to me - "sketchy" in skate’s slang is used to describe anything that is not perfect or ideal. My impression was absolutely opposite, composition is short, but expressive, and perfect the way it is, it stuck in my head, and don’t want to leave. Artist confessed that…
