    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…

    Fat Freddy's Drop announced a new album “LOCK-IN” and shared a new reimagined live version of “Hope”. A new album is based on the live session recorded at the iconic venue Michael Fowler Centre, where Fat Freddy's Drop re-located their BAYS studio and jammed with no audience. A sonic moment in time featuring eight tracks "Special Edition", "Six-Eight", "This Room", "Trickle Down", "Avengers", "Soldier", "Hope" & "OneFourteen".
