Alex Wiley-Splash Game

Alex Wiley’s video for “Splash Game” takes place in Toronto and he rides a go-kart, hangs with an animated mini-me and spends money. There are even captions beneath the visuals like the one assuring the viewers that “he’s really black, guy” as Wiley raps about extinguishing self-doubt. Village Party is making him one of the most-watched new rappers to come out of Chicago.


Gene Noble-Melody Feat. Yummy Bingham

“Melody” is Gene Noble and Yummy Bingham’s collaboration from the Gun Hill soundtrack. Reggie Rock Bythewood’s story about twin brothers who are the opposite of each other becomes intriguing when one is killed and the survivor assumes his identity. Larenz Tate stars in the short film which is actually a pilot tester for BET. There is no word on whether it will be turned into a series but it can be viewed on Netflix.


Souls Of Mischief and Adrian Younge-Panic Struck

“Panic Struck” is another song from the Souls Of Mischief album with Adrian Younge, There Is Only Now. A scary incident the band experienced in ’94 with a guy in a ski-mask is the basis of the jazz-influenced track.


Chrisette Michele-Better Unplugged Acoustic Version

Chrisette Michele went into the studio and performed an acoustic version of “Better” and she was quick to make the video available to the fans.


Amp Fiddler In London This October


Soundcrash present Detroit’s keyboard and vocal ace, producer, arranger, and composer Amp Fiddler at London’s Rich Mix, 30th October 2014. With one of Neo-soul’s up and coming talents Harleighblu in the supporting slot, this show is 100% unmissable. Be there!

Having been missing in action for the past few years, Amp Fiddler’s latest release Basementality 2 is a welcomed return. The 6 track EP features a duet with Raphael Saadiq and two remixes, adding that extra edge. Fiddler oozes cool, funk and feel-good soul out of every pore so expect nothing less for his new live show.

Harleighblu, the Nottingham soulstress will open the show with her new live set-up. Signed to Brighton’s Tru Thoughts label and her debut album Forget Me Not released at the end of 2013, there seems to be no stopping this girl! Her smooth, yet powerful vocals have already made an impact on the UK soul/ R&B scene and she is showing no signs of slowing down!
