Mau – Simple Things

Do you know what, I think drum & bass is such a good genre of music when it’s done properly. Mau‘s soulful vocals matched with this laid back bassline is a perfect mix to sing along to. This has been on replay a few times for me… woops

If YA DONT KNOW, ya do now ;)

Illusion – No Love

This is the first I’ve heard of singer/rapper Illusion and I’m liking what I’ve heard so far. Illusion‘s music is inspired by soul, funk and r&B sounds, and already having supported Sneakbo and gained support from the likes of Kiss, 1xtra, Capital Xtra, MTV, AKA & Flava, I’m expecting bigger things. I love an artist that makes music with meaning, something that is relevant to the current generation and not just your usual empty lyrics.

Jesse Gamage – Courage EP (Download)

JesseGamage- Courage EP

The extremely talented singer-songwriter Jesse Gamage recently released his “Courage EP“. It is a 5 track long EP comprised of absolutely beautiful soul music. Jesse Gamage will appeal to all audiences and can make anyone that listens to him fall in love with his smooth vocals. I cannot over-sell this, but I’ll do my best to just let the music speak for itself!

Razor – Other Side ft Jay Soul

Other Side is by far my favourite track that Razor has ever released (that includes anything from his mixtapes/EPs). His deep and intense lyrics tell a snippet of his life and is complimented by the beautiful voice of Jay Soul. Razor has taken a long time to release the official video for this, following his Illacoustic but it’s been worth the wait. He’s now performed twice at “I luv live” since he released the Illacoustic, which he says he’s been waiting to do for 5 years! Good for you, keep working hard, I look forward to hearing more from you, Razor, we need more lyricists, too much air and meaningless messages in music these days.

Jesse Gamage – Just Friends ft Dear Rob (Cover – LinkUpTV)

A voice like Jesse‘s is so rare to find, so soulful, reminds me a little bit of Anthony Hamilton but is even better, what a talent! Dear Rob also has the nicest physique and the most groomed and well shaped eyebrows I’ve ever seen on a male.. I didn’t know he can spit too though?! wahayyyyyyy 😉 that’s always a bonus ladies!

  • [Thought of the Week]

    "Maybe cheating in a relationship isn't the worst thing you could do, maybe it's just human nature?"

    Remember when you were a child, and your parents would tell you you're not allowed to eat sweets, or make a mess in your bedroom, and you'd do the complete opposite and crave it even more just because you're not allowed? Or if you're on a diet, you know you're not allowed cake or carbs, but simply because you know you're not allowed it, you want it even more? Well surely the same applies in relationships?
    Firstly, I want to start by saying we're not perfect, but perfection is something we should strive towards. Honesty is the best policy.
    A friend of mine is genuinely one of the loveliest people I know, with the best heart and the best intentions and I don't want to show him in a negative light whatsoever, simply provide you with an alternative idea. I've known him for a few years, however we only started speaking properly about a year ago. We both found each other attractive, blah blah blah, so we decided to book a hotel room. He ignored me for a few days, so obviously something was wrong, then he told me there's another girl he loves (obviously I didn't know this before), as they weren't together. I didn't think much of it, actually I was extremely envious of this girl, and that she has someone in her life that is so dedicated and faithful. A few months later, conversation escalated, and we once again decided to go hotel, and a few days beforehand he once again cancelled. This time I was pretty angry and upset, because he'd lead me on and then cancelled. Obviously we're not together but I'm my own person too at the end of the day and don't want to be lead on.
    Another few months later we started talking, innocent conversation about gym, films etc (this time via dm on twitter as I deleted his number and vice versa, I assume), and I had calmed down over the previous incident, he was a genuinely lovely person and I admire the faithfulness to his yet to be girlfriend, I hope I find someone like that in the future. But anyway, we decided to have a gym session together, as we live near each other we went to the park, and for the majority of it, it was a really good session, fun, productive (my legs KILLED the following day) but there was sexual tension, especially towards the end. My back was super sore from gym the previous day and he offered a massage, it was rubbish and he didn't get very far unfortunately as he was starting to give in, and couldn't resist the attraction any longer. Not a lot happened as I stopped him, before it escalated too far. I'd hate for my future husband to cheat on me, so I could only give this couple the same respect (they were together a few months at this point). The following day he thanked me, and was grateful for stopping him.
    The point of this example is, I know my friend loves his girlfriend very much but none of us are perfect and we all give in to temptation now and again. Many males/females cheat because they have a craving, and a hoe gets in the way that has no respect for the relationship and only wants his/ her needs fulfilled, few will have a conscience and stop anything

    Alternatively, on a separate occasion I was speaking to another friend about this topic. He told me that he's seen a sidechick/man save many relationships. His reasons were that if you have an argument with your partner, instead of ending the relationship, you go to see a sidechick/man, relax, then go back to your partner happy and proceed as normal. I disagree with his reasoning however I see the point behind it.
    As long as you don't make a habit out of temptation, and are honest... maybe we're too extreme when it comes to cheating? I disagree with cheating, and don't condone it, however this is just a thought. Everyone get's bored of everything eventually if you get too high a dose, it's just a matter of balance.
