With the huge success of people like Drake and The Weeknd, we find a unique sound and style emerging in he music industry. The duo known as, Majid Jordan, who are under Drake’s label OVO, is now finding the right sound for them. ‘Something About You’ sounds a lot like any track The Weeknd could have put out there, but I think what separates them is the almost hip-hop sounding bass feel that The Weeknd has lost since his shoot to fame.
The duo is giving us Drake and The Weeknd back when I first heard them, not so mainstream sounding, and more experimental with their sound with an almost HudMo vibe, which I am loving. Anyway, we hope to hear more from these guys this year, and hope they keep a sound similar to this!
If you don’t know the talent that is Jody Brock by now, I highly suggest you dive in right now!
I have been following his career for quite sometime now, and I am highly impressed with everything has put out. After what feels like forever, we finally get an EP that was definitely worth the wait titled ‘Phoenix’. The one word I would use to describe Jody Brock and this whole EP is “Raw”. His sound is verging on rock with a soul which is definitely a sound we don’t have anywhere right now. If I had to compare it something, it would definitely be The Black Keys, but don’t let that get stuck in your head, because Jody adds so much more to that sound. Each track has a very distinct sound but keeps a very rock vibe going for it. I can’t even begin to describe the vocals on this EP, I thought I had heard it all, vocally, from him but he continues to impress.
Although I love the EP as a whole, I have to admit ‘User’ is definitely a standout track for me, so much depth and meaning behind every word in that song. I have posted the video for the song after the jump, which I highly suggest you watch right now!
Thank you Jody Brock for creating this, and I definitely hope this gives him enough momentum to cross over and play some shows in the USA here soon!
After falling in love with his talent, go buy the EP right here —–> Phoenix EP
Now that Jess Glynne has stepped out of the shadow of Clean Bandit, she has released some pretty strong tracks, ‘Hold My Hand’ being one of them. I can’t explain how much I love the voice on this woman, she gives a soulful vibe to her dance floor ready songs that no one is able to do. This song has gotten quite a buzz since its release, and I’m expecting quite a huge solo debut for her. I’m excited that she will be at the local music festival SXSW this year, and I am looking forward to hearing this live!
I already gave me opinion on this song, and I have to say the video is simple, yet powerful. It’s probably because they spent all the money on the featured guests. Anyway, I’m here for this new #R8 era, lets do this!
I wasn’t a fan of this song when it first made it’s release, but this video put it in perspective and I fell in love with it. Although some parts such as the beginning with him running, and the part where he is singing along sounding like he is high on all the drugs could have been taken out. I am officially ready for the new Yeezus that is to come out of this album.
