Producer and MC duo Shaun Harris and LUGO deliver a smooth-soul and funk backdrop to a mellow, characterful rap outpouring, for the self-reflective and storytelling Swan Shaun.
An impressive debut, to say the least – a track that begs for you to witness it in a live setting. Purple Crosses intertwines desolation and hope, as it explores the concept of recovery and the overwhelming desire to escape the hellish grip of addiction.
Intimate musicianship and storytelling to match, NICE is a brief but effective collection of live performances – a band united in this lo-fi-inspired expression of self and groove.

Inspired by a fusion of ambient beats, bossa nova and Minecraft, lavanova gifts its audience far more than the title or underlying themes can imply.
Instantly calming for its crisp guitar line and smooth bass and beat combination, Blood In – Blood Out soon makes sure to weave in an increasing level of personality.
The voice is distantly mixed, unpredictable in both topic and rhythm – almost freestyle-like as it gathers momentum. These qualities prove indicative of an artist uninhibited by industry standards, but also well-rooted amidst the trip-hop-style escapism of enchanting soundscapes
An easy place to escape for a while, with a refreshingly unexpected conceptual backbone to enhance the effect.
Authentically lo-fi yet musically organic in unison, vhsgus crafts a melodically enchanting ambient journey, for Red Eye.
Loaded with sublime guitar and keys arrangements, simple yet striking, as well as faultless yet expressive vocals of notably eclectic origins, The Only Way Is Up makes for a blissful listen.

Reciprocate is quite stunning, simple in arrangement and refreshingly humble in its quiet verse delivery from both rappers, but it also weaves in a subtle yet striking hook; which resolves each outpouring perfectly well.
