Electronic meets hip-hop in M3staken’s new album

Screen Shot 2016-06-26 at 11 (1400x1400) (2)

After releasing his debut album, Apex, earlier this year- a combination of hip-hop beats with electronic effects and an intriguing classical piano edge, the young producer, M3staken has returned with his continuation record, Water Colors.

M3staken’s style is not your everyday type of music, in fact, it’s quite the opposite. Jarring rhythms and beats is what M3 does best, compiling complex musical structures with subtle melody and moody drones that underpin his work. Consequently, there’s a definite dark ambience to his music; a dissonance that is expertly crafted and formed into a challenging listen.

Growing up in South Carolina, M3staken takes influence from a wide range of artists including Joey Bada$$, Jamie XX and FKA Twigs.

With an ambitious sound that is difficult to pin down, M3staken is one to listen to if you’re even the remotest hip-hop fan.

Jo Cooper releases ‘Wildfire’

jo0641-2Giving the likes of Jess Glynne and Katy Perry a run for their money Jo Cooper releases ‘Wildfire’.

You cannot help but fall in love with Jo, one of those personalities that makes you smile when she’s around. Jo’s voice is beautiful and full of energy and her talent is only that of a star in the making’Carmelo Pizzino (Dancing With The Stars)

I cannot agree more with Carmelo, Jo’s music is infectious, listen to ‘Wildfire’ below:

There is also a remix by Cavo on ‘Wildfire’, check it out below:

Both versions of the track are a great listen, it’s like one version is for more relaxed listening and the other is for getting ready to go out listening.

This is not the first remix Jo has had, she had success with a remix back in 2013 with ‘Stupid Boy’ a track which gained international attention from its Ministry of Sound remix produced by London duo ‘Hoxton Whore’s’, it peaked at number 20 in the UK’s music week club charts.

Jo has even met Ed Sheeran who gave her some advice with music, when she was working at a radio station in her native country, Australia.

Jo will hopefully make the journey to the UK soon and do some live performances or at least I hope she does.
