Probably our fave lp of the year gets another video. Interesting how they keep making videos for the lp and not the mixtape that came afterwards. Bearing in mind that there was talk of her working with Dr Luke on her next lp, im glad that they are commemorating the r and b stuff with visuals

With this series we hope to increase appreciation for dancehall riddims and instrumentals as we feel that in dancehall the productions and producers don’t often get the props they deserve.
Once again we reach out to Manchester and Bacchanal Ronin provides us with a mix that darts around dancehall, soca and SA house. Sit back listen and bust a skank.
Spanning the full Oh Bacchanal! spectrum; bashment, R&B, hip hop, soca, afropop, afro house and tarraxinha; the point of the mix is how much fun it is to weld all these styles together. Overall, the mix feels tactile with an emphasis on melody. I favoured riddims with novel sounds and samples that make them seem complete and charaterful without a voice… although, feel free to add your own vocals if the urge takes you.

So RI-RI has a new muse songwriter who has been getting a lot of press. That’s cool but Ester Dean, the former Riri guru released a new ep recently that is actually really good. The majority of her stuff is good, this one is something that you can’t help but think that if Riri and the machine went to bat for it, it would be a smash. Instead it’s something to be added to Ester great collection of songs. All Hail Ester the queen of the mini chorus.
Still shocked that people hate Tinashe because she wasnt cassie 2.0. We on the other hand loved her lp and the self helmed video for Aquarius is great as well.
