FRESHBORNGOLD#3: SOMETHING ELSE (NOV 17)
The month of November marked the second month in the second iteration of Something Else.
This month’s treasury started off with the incendiary insta-hit from Dave & Mostack, No Words. Birthed from a studio session with the unstoppable hitmaker Steele Banglez and Mist, Dave & Mostack bounce off of each other to make a track that really encapsulates what a year the scene is having right now.
The sophomore track comes from a collaboration from Ebenezer & Col3trane, Language from Cole3trane’s new album ‘Tsarina’. The two crooners are setting themselves up incredibly for 2018 with song structures that’s very rarely heard in UK R&B.
November saw Fredo release the profound but bouncy anthem, Change as he continues to become a main player in the scene right now; Faze Miyake blessed us all with an album of hypnotic sounds with Transition being a personal favourite.
A penultimate closer comes from the genre-spanning Hak Baker who released his album Misfits, a raw and reflective project touching on Hak’s navigation through life and epitomised by tracks such as the soul-bearing Tom and the featured, MisFits.
The playlist also features music from Jidenna, KWAYE, MIKE, Jaden Smith & Jadu Heart.
