Eli Moon – Feelin’ Right

South London R&B prodigy Eli Moon has shared his new single ‘Feelin Right’.

The vocalist launched himself into our consciousness with a self-recorded EP, a raw showcase for his blossoming abilities.

Heading into the studio, this fixated perfectionist pushed himself harder and harder, transforming his sound in the process.

New single ‘Feelin Right’ emerged from this process, an atmospheric piece of alt-R&B that plays with damaged electronics.

Digital production with a human touch, it finds Eli exploring the darker side of his music. He comments:

“I wrote this song completely instinctively in about 30 minutes. In life, we all have a path to follow that will uncover different truths. Feelin’ Right is my expression of that and a journey into the darker side of my mind.”

MAXO KREAM – Meet Again

Few rappers can piece together autobiographical and reflective raps as well as Maxo Kream does. On his latest single, “Meet Again,” the Houston emcee revisits the heartfelt approach he took on “Roaches,” to talk about how the criminal justice system is tearing his world apart.

Right from the jump, you can hear the despair in Maxo’s voice as he recites the song’s chorus: “I got homies in the grave, I got brothers in the pen/I got some that’s comin’ home, I got some that’s going in.” That somber tone is present throughout “Meet Again,” whether Maxo is checking on his locked-up homie’s mother (“Seen your momma yesterday, gave her money for your books”) or dealing with the financial burden of helping his friend get a lighter sentence (“I dropped 40 on a lawyer, tryna reduce your sentence”). Maxo also has to come to terms with witnessing his own flesh and blood have their lives upended yet again: “My pops back in the system, he might just die in prison/My mom is co-defendant so she got locked up with him.” All this while experiencing a legal battle of his own: “They want me locked up in a cage I’m fightin’ RICO just like Mitch.” Maxo Kream is baring his soul, as he desperately tries to make sure that his world doesn’t completely crumble.

Ross From Friends – The Revolution

Ross From Friends, aka London DJ and lo-fi house producer Felix Clary Weatherall, is back with new music. Next month, Weatherall will release a 12″ called Epiphany on Brainfeeder, following up his 2018 debut album with the famed label, Family Portrait. According to Weatherall, Epiphany is an homage to (and named after) his sister. He calls her “one of the most important role models I have.” After teasing a new song on Twitter, Weatherall is now sharing that track, one of the three songs off of Epiphany.

“The Revolution” is a groovy, dusty and bouncy house track. It loops and chops what sounds like a sort of chant, while adding in some rubbery guitar, wobbly synths and sharp percussion. In addition to the full track, he’s also sharing an edit today.

Konx-om-Pax – LA Melody

Konx-Om-Pax has announced a new album for Planet Mu.

Due out June 14th, Ways Of Seeing is Tom Scholefield’s first release since 2017’s Refresher EP. In contrast to his previous work, which combines rave, ambient and abstract sounds, the new album features a more accessible mix of pop-driven electronica and melodies. Scholefield, a recent transplant from Glasgow to Berlin, says the music’s mood is a reaction to the dark and noisy experimental sounds coming out of his new city.

Ways Of Seeing features cameos from Nightwave and Silvia Kastel. Scholefield also wrote select parts during a creative exchange with Hudson Mohawke and Lunice.
