‘Iskaba’  WANDE COAL & DJ TUNEZ

Iskaba is such a tune I dont know why it has taken me so long to upload to the playlist, I have been sitting on this banger for weeeeeeks. Iskaba was actually released year 24/11/16 to be exact. The highly anticpated video came out April this year.

Who is Wande Coal?

Wande Coal is the CEO of Black Records Entertainment, he  has recorded tracks with other Nigerian artists including Ikechukwu, Naeto C, Dr SID, D’Prince, Wizkid and many more. In 2012 following a fallout between record label Executives Don Jazzy and D’banj, Coal, Dr SID and D’Prince signed on to Don Jazzy’s new Record Label Mavin Records with the addition of Tiwa Savage from 323 entertainment acting as the first lady of mavin records. Coal left Mavin Records in 2013. In October 2013, he released a single called “Baby Face”.

After a long hiatus, Coal dropped his  album Wanted.

‘THE LINK UP’  DONAEO

Its been a while since I have uploaded music from Donaeo, however he has been the curator for bringing back UK Funky music and was asked to do the #Bringbackfunkyhousechallange. With the help of the ‘Link Up TV’ they were able to document the process. Donaeo vocalled and mixed his new funky track within 30 minutes. Donaeo announced last week that ‘Link up’ is available to download. Since putting it out, the feedback has been great. Supporters have been posting videos of them listening, creating shapes (dance) to his new track.

I am excited for Donaeo and for UK Funky to come back and I’m hoping all of the producers and Dj’s who kept it alive grave us with some new productions.

STOP LIVING A SINGLE LIFE IF YOU ARE NOT SINGLE!!

T.E.A Blog recently reached out to you the readers to suggest topics that should be covered on here. The topic that seemed be causing all sorts of problems was “Men who are claiming single life but are not actually single.”

It seems that it has become a problem for many women including myself with men who are “pretending” to be single when actually they have been in a long-term relationship. The question is why are they doing this? How can we look out for this behaviour and avoid being mislead?

  1. WHY? I don’t actually know why men hide the relationship they are in and date or start new relationships with other women. Live a stress and drama free life. It’s so simple just conclude the long-term relationship. It’s so simple!!

2. Honesty  For some reason men seem to think that women can not handle honesty, the truth. Women actually welcome that honesty so that they can move forward and actually get over the heartbreak quicker. It’s not the honesty that we can not handle its the manipulation, lies and general “BS” (bullshit) that is the problem for women, which then creates unnecessary problems that were not there to begin with.

Guys! Stop denying and lying when she is asking you simple questions about something  because she will  more than likely know that something aint right.

3. Intuition– This thing called intuition ( your gut instinct) is a blessing and a curse but more of a blessing.  Whilst the woman has been promoting her relationship for years, she maybe blind to the fact that her man has actually never promoted their relationship with her, then suddenly his movements and behaviour doesn’t add up. This is where the intitution starts to play havoc. If her man has cheated on her in the past then she will NOTICE the pattern. This may take some time when we realise but believe women will play the game until we get the answers without even asking the man or are no longer asking those annoying questions.

The message to men is stop living a single life if you not single. How does this even make sense? The guy could be with a woman for 5+ years and throughout the years he has been fooling other women to the point where some are marrying the other woman without the 1st lady even knowing about his double life. Then when things don’t add up the woman who has been with him for the longest will have clocked on to what has been going on whilst lady no 2 has no idea until the 1st lady lets her know.

Men it is so simple to just end the dead relationship you are no longer feeling. In fact before the dating starts. Please make it clear about what it is that you want so that we can keep our options and move on.  Tell the woman you have been seeing for years that you are bored just be flipping honest.

This behaviour needs to stop because women are tired of this cycle and it’s not fair for the guys that are not living a double life and happily single or want to date.

I would like to hear your views on this subject especially from the men, do they acknowledge this life?

Lets discuss…

‘INCAPABLE’- KEYSHIA COLE & NEW FAVOURITES

 

It’s no secret that Keyshia Cole has been working on new material and giving us tasters off the new album. Personally when I heard the collaboration with French Montana and Remy Ma on the ‘You’ single I was excited and thought it was a good come back as its upbeat but she still kept it real with her meaningful lyrics.

Now Keyshia is officially back and promoting her new single ‘Incapable‘. When I received the single I didn’t waste no time to listen and just as I expected. Cole  is back to making classic ballads. We can’t deny Keyshia’s talent and she is dope at using her experiences to inspire her songs and she makes them so relatable for everybody.

I’m not excited about this song however I am looking forward to hearing Keyshia’s forthcoming  seventh studio album, 11:11 Reset due October 20th (TODAY). I do truly believe that she has some great songs to share. We need Keyshia to keep RnB alive across the waters.

FEKKY. feat SHAKKA ‘My Size’

Taken from Fekky’s ‘El Clasico’ debut album I think this is one of the best tracks off this album, I can not get enough of it. The production is so sick and its a great feature from Shakka. The video was shot in South Africa its a good look.

SHAKKA ‘Heart The Weekend’

There is just  something about Shakka. Even when he performs he is such a SICK artist no matter what track, production he puts out. I think what I like the most about Shakka is that he such a diverse artist that you can see it in how he dresses and we can hear it in his music. No track sounds the same and I really like how he sings over electronic, house beats but can also switch up and go into his roots.

Heart The Weekend is his latest single and its out now

ANGEL ‘Take You Home’

Take You Home has grown on me the more I heard it. What I really like  about Angel is how he curates  his influences into his music. For example “Take You Home” is a remake of the 80’s classic “Gotta Get You Home Tonight” by Eugene Wilde. I Really like how Angel has taken a classic and made it so modern that he almost sounds like Chris Brown and hints of Trey Songz.

In my personal opinion Angel doesn’t get the credit that he deserves. The man has been doing bits for time. This is a sick remake.

Cadet is finally doing a mini UK tour and will be in Birmingham Thursday 7th December  with special guests. Cadet is an artist that I have been excited about for ever since his letter to Krept COUSIN LOVE and his growth in the last 12+ months has been so inspiring. The freestyle, performances around the UK and recently the release of “The commitment 2” album are proof of how much hard work truly pays off.  Inspire is hoping to get an interview with Cadet ahead of his performance.  Check out his latest freestyle #forthep***ychallenge. For the bants and jokes its worth a watch and probably the best one so far that’s come from this challenge.

NEW FAVOURITES

 

 

 

Greetings readers,

Its been a while since I lasted posted on the blog. I apologise for the delay but don’t worry I have been collating ideas for new features on the blog for future developments. Thank you for still checking the website daily to see if there has been updates. Lastly I want to send love to my readers in the Caribbean Islands who are going through the most traumatic events right now from hurricane Irma my sincere thoughts are with you all.

Lets get into the playlist.

YXNG BANE – RIHANNA

Yxng bane is killing it right now.  The East London-born rapper specializes in dance hall-infused R&B, but stays true to the culture with  blending genres from across the board with the afrobeats sounds.  Yxng Bane’s most popular song is the‘Shape of You Remix’, he has featured on songs with  Kojo Funds, Yungen, AfroWave Tayá and many more. ‘Rihanna’ is receiving so much good feedback from DJs, bloggers. The song has over a million views on YouTube already. It’s currently  played in the clubs overseas and most urban radio stations such as BBC 1xtra, Captial xtra. This song is definitely in my top favourites, it’s so sick I can’t get enough of it.

‘Rihanna’ is available on all digital outlets

STEFFLON DON ‘HURTIN ME’ Feat, French Montana

Another tune that has my ears is Stefflon Don’s  new song “Hurtin Me” feat French Montana.  The into where she belts out “Breakfast in bed, I got you begging for it” is just so catchy and the way she cries out “I heard you got a new girlfriend and its hurtin me”, those lines carry so much emotion we hear the hurt in her voice. I like it because its appeals to her female audience and as a female myself I know how it feels when we see the guy with a new girlfriend because we get in our feelings. So I can really relate to the lyrics. It’s a good song, with or without French Montana, I feel like this track is so diverse she could do various remixes.

Steff has already claimed the title of a real MC, her inventive rap and dance hall inspired wordplay  has caught the attention of many grime artists, even  Drake .  Stephanie Allen was born in Birmingham (UK) before moving to the Netherlands and London with her family. Growing with both parents who speak patois her dancehall style came natrually as it is quite popular in the Netherlands. In 2015 she was turning heads with her version of Wretch 32 “Six Words” and Section Boys “Lock Arf”. Since then she’s been in high demand, appearing on tracks by the likes of Lethal Bizzle(Wobble remix) , Sneakbo (Work remix) and Angel (Hop On) .Rounding off her success last year she was named on the BBC Sound of 2017 longlist then the release of Real Ting Mixtape which has been a great success for Steff with the track such as ‘Real Ting’ where she actually embraces herself  with lyrics like “belly fat, belly marked up” and she is still bad with diamonds in her rolly (Rolex). Although I do like her previous tunes, well 16 shots is one of my favs,  Hurtin Me is a big tune and will grow on a lot of people the more it is played on the airwaves.

MELISA WHISKEY ‘BILLIN’

Melisa dropped her first track ‘Played’ in January this year and was featured as BBC Introducing Track of the Week on BBC Radio 1Xtra.
Melisa followed this with the track  ‘Sweetest Cake’ in March, this time gaining attention across both sides of the Atlantic from blogs such as  Wonderland, AFROPUNK, OK-THO and Clash Magazine all featuring what they championed as a major new voice in UK soul and R&B.
Now coming with the second taster from her forthcoming debut E.P. ‘Moon & The Sky’, ‘Billin’ is outspoken and harder, which brings a whole new dimension to Melisa’s work. .It’s also an edgy, soulful banger that keeps the young star’s reputation building.

Melisa premiered ‘Billin’ on DJ Ace’s show at BBC 1xtra’s Live Lounge last month and later performed at this years Notting Hill Carnival. Billin is taken from her latest upcoming EP  Moon +The Sky’ which set to be released this month.   This is such as good tune with smooth melodies and its catchy.

Keep a look out for Melisa’s music as I feel we will hear more from this artist.

CASISDEAD ‘THE CODE’

OMG this is another song that I cant get enough of. The lyrical content is humoureous, the flow and production is just BAD!! Instanly it makes you bop your head. For those that may not be familiar withCASisDEAD, also known as CAS and formerly Castro, is a UK Rap/Grime MC, producer, visual director, entrepreneur from Tottenham (London). He has is own record label under the name of  imreallydead, through which he releases his own music. He began rapping in 2005 under the name Castro Saint, a moniker he kept until 2007. In his first spell in music, Castro made no music videos. He resumed a music career in 2012 under the name CASisDEAD.Since returning to music in 2012 he has worn a mask during all public appearances and videos, this has led to speculation over his true identity.

CAS has released several songs this year such as ‘Do It Again’ (Mineo ft. CASisDEAD), ‘Too Much Drugs’ (feat. Chase & Status), ‘The Grid’, ‘Danger’feat (Shola Ama x CASisDEAD), ‘The Code.’

WRETCH 32 FEAT. DONAE’O, KOJO FUNDS  ‘WHISTLE’

Wretch 32  is back and has teamed up with Donae’o and Kojo Funds on the track ‘Whistle’, produced by one of the Birmingham’s finest producers Rymez.  This is a strong line up  as we have Wretch highlighting how Black lives matter, Donae’o belting the hook “We got to get the money, beacuse the money is ours” and Kojo giving us the deep voice vocals. The collaboration also works because I feel its a long time over due project for Wretch and Donae’o together on a track but also ideal for Kojo to be on this track with Donaeo because I personally feel that both artists sound quite similar. Wretch has been a little quiet since the success of  the ‘Growing Over Life‘ album last year but he has also spent time in Jamaica and is currently working on his forth coming album. I think we can expect to hear to some serious music from Wretch towards the end of this year into 2018.

JORJA SMITH x  PREDITAH ‘ON MY MIND’

 

This collaboration surprised me. I didn’t see it coming at all, but it works. It’s a rare occasion to see two artists  who both equally successful from the West Midlands  linking up on projects such as this. As I typed this I was listening to Jorja on Charlie Sloth’s 1xtra show explaining how this collaboration came about, where she said that herself and Preditah paired together about 2 years ago in a session with singer-songwriter Ed Thomas.

Jorja Smith started 2016 with her career-making number “Blue Lights”, a slew of high-profile singles and collabs with the likes of Drake and Kali Uchis  I like how ‘On My Mind’ has hints of how garage sounded in 1998-2000 where producers like Arftul Dodger x Craig David, Wookie and MJ Cole who were and still are masters at putting together their productions with R&B/pop artists. The collaboration also reminds me of when Wookie linked up with Eliza Doolittle on ‘The Hype’ track. Preditah is definately one of the best producers to come from Birmingham (UK) along with Rymez and both have a catalogue of classics with probably most of the top UK grime mc’s and rappers.

Listen to ‘On My Mind’ – http://smarturl.it/JorjaSmithOnMyMind

 

 

Tayá FEAT YXNG BANE ‘WHEN UR SOBER’

Tayá singer-songwriter from Liverpool has teamed up with Yxng Bane on her latest song ‘When ur sober.’

“’When Ur Sober’ is probably the most personal song I’ve ever released. I think pretty much everyone can relate to going through a rocky patch in a relationship, and finding themselves needing reassurance, but not getting it. Sometimes it’s just good to hear that you’re not the only one” – Tayá

 

I truly agree that the lyrics are relatable and may hit home for many people.  Tayá is signed to Atlantic Records, has her 6 track self titled E.P which is available now. Tayá is also about to headline her first show on the 4th October @ Thousand Island you can purchase ticketshere
