DaKing – “CryptoBoom” is a vibe from start to finish!

“CryptoBoom” is the second single by Moscow artist DaKing who is currently working on album which will feature previously unheard of 3D stereo effects. As can be gaged by the title, the song is inspired by escalation of cryptocurrencies. DaKing falls into the category of nu-wave rappers. You can hear a bit of his flow, hooks, and ad-lib driven rap style in the music of today’s newest up and comers. DaKing verses have a way of feeling like extended hooks. He loves to chant as his ad-libs swirl in the background. Sometimes he even delivers a rapid-fire flow. The project

Haze Daze – “Shadows” is rich and inviting!

Self-awareness is key, and Haze Daze getting in touch with that allows him to separate himself from the pack, reaching territory where only a handful others reside. But of course his latest track, “Shadows” is also the embodiment of the current culture. The song is the unification of the SoundCloud elite sound and the figures who came directly before, it’s an embracement of that short but rich history. Knowing your strengths or limitations is a skill that few have. Haze Daze on “Shadows”, is not only able to avoid any potential limits, but also accentuate his strengths. The track is

Londi Gamedze: South Africa’s Distinctive, Sultry Voice!

Folk meets far out in Londi Gamedze’s songs about everything under the sun. The Cape Town born, South African artist’s distinctive, sultry voice and whimsical touch give Londi’s ukulele lo-fi sound a cosy feel. It is not just the timbre of her voice that is mature beyond her years. She is instantly recognizable, blending shades of sultry craftswomen before her, without sounding like anyone but herself. Any way you slice it, she is going to be an artist to be reckoned with on an international level.

In 2013 Londi Gamedze released her album titled, ‘JetLag’.  Recorded in Cape Town, Jet Lag mixes fresh urban folk with electronic ambiance. The album contains songs about TV mafia legend Tony Soprano, about the nine hour time zone difference between California and Cape Town, about HBO’s Six Feet Under main character Nate Fisher, and more.

I casually bumped into Londi’s music through a mutual friend. Multimedia artist, Alexx Thompson. Alexx who handles both Photography and Cinematography is also founder of the LA artist collective Central Elements, a web based community that provides a platform for artists to showcase their work.

Alexx had just finished shooting an impromptu video of Londi, within a couple of hours of meeting up with her after an 8-year spell in which each had been pursuing their own personal careers; Londi in South Africa and Alexx in L.A.

Enchanted by the song ‘Blue Dream’, which has to do with a particularly sought-after, homegrown weed, Alexx couldn’t resist in capturing Londi’s candidly seductive performance, where as usual, his camera ensnares every bit of warmth and charm that Londi breathes into the song.

Thrilled, Alexx dropped me a copy, and here she is, ladies and gentleman, Londi Gamedze. Londi is unlike many contemporary artists; it is difficult to foist her into a specific genre. She does not try to emulate anybody. Her voice is smokey, rustic, and full-bodied like a preciously aged Chianti wine.

Listening to her music, what I liked about Londi is her subtle reserve and the ability to refrain from milking her voice for all its’ worth. If you’re sick of the entire little girl screechy, electronically manipulated, over dubbed, forced down your throat, supposed singers out there. Londi gives you hope that there really are still some singers who own quality, uniqueness, and sheer talent of vocal abilities.

But Londi is so much more. Her music has a rich, refreshing honesty that seduces purely with its simplicity and lack of pretension, while her playing of the Ukulele is unassuming and tasteful. Listening to her for the very first time is like putting on your favorite pair of old jeans. You just feel so comfortable straight away.

Her voice is soothing; her songs are soft and easy on the ears, which is rare these days. What sets Londi Gamedze apart from the rest is the originality of her material. It’s fresh and vintage all at once. ‘Jet Lag’ is one of those albums that become a classic in your collection after the first listen. It’s great to dig into the lyrics or just let it play in the background.

In short, Londi Gamedze is a shimmering joy. On record, on video, and just about anywhere else she lays down her talents! I’m glad Alexx sent me this one. I’m in love already!
