This has been another solid week on the Electro-Soul scene. There were releases from new, established, and up-and-coming artists, and all that variation in experience created a lot of variation between the songs’ unique sound. There’s something here for everyone, whether you want to dance, drive, or chill out.
If you’ve been with Soul Sunday from the beginning, you might remember an artist called Kinetik Groove. The very first post I featured his song “All Over Again”, and I’m proud to say he’s back and better than ever. His newest track “What A Day” shows clear growth from his previous work. I think he’s really starting to focus in on his own sound, and I still say it’s worth seeing where he’s going.
Another name you’ve probably come to know by now is The Geek x Vrv. They’re one of the best Electro-Soul groups out there, and I think they are vastly underrated. Every song of theirs is a masterpiece and “Do Me A Favor” is no exception. Syncopation, changing time signatures, it’s complex yet simple and you will fall in love with it. Plus it’s a free download.
British Neo-Soul Electro-Pop is always a good idea. Or whatever genre you want to classify Joe Hertz’s remix of “Take Shelter” by Years and Years as. What was originally more of dancehall-type banger has been completely transformed into a chill track that goes perfectly with a midnight drive.
Our last track was inspired by the rather out-there Canadian music festival, Shambhala. Artist Bryth transports you into this trippy world, using LSD housewife samples, ambient, and truly beautiful production. It’s about as chill as you can get, and it’s a great way to end any night.
Keep on vibing,
