‘Like No Other’
An organically unfolding single of Afro soul.
On ‘Like No Other’, the Sierra Leonean Garnett introduces her Feather vibe from a forthcoming solo EP due in the summer. That sound is Afro neo-soul, jazz and hip-hop funk, played by an able eight-piece live band.
The song has a wonderful organic feel to it cross-pollinating genres: from hushed gospel-style soul to an electronic African oriental-leaning sound that is rich throughout. It’s a nice promise of things to come…

‘Glowed Up’ feat. Anderson Paak
A blunted beat match.
Kaytranada has linked up with man of the moment Anderson Paak on a new track from his forthcoming debut album 99.9%.
His smoked tones are perfectly suited to Kaytranada’s bumping productions as you can hear on ‘Glowed Up’, a return for Kay’s production work on ‘Lite Weight’. 99.9% is out on XL on May 6th and features Craig David, Karriem Riggins, Alunageorge, Goldlink, Vic Mensa, Syd and Little Dragon.
The Fader interview with Kay a good read, with him talking about the thought process around coming out as gay and how it was/is affecting his life.[Original Post]
