Frank Addai is back with “Feeling You” from his forthcoming EP. Addai received attention earlier this year for his cover of Naughty Boy’s “Runnin’ (Lose It All).” Solarium produced “Feeling You” and Addai explains the story behind the song:
“The song stemmed from a simple phone call I had with Solarium, about my desire to create some soulful house music that is R&B melody heavy. I wanted people to vibe to the music, but also appreciate the musical sensibilities. Solarium led on the production and writing on this record, and as soon as I heard the track, I thought it was a banger. I just had to record it and put it out there.”
Addai’s untitled EP is scheduled for release at the beginning of 2018.
Washed Out released his visual debut album Mister Mellow on Stones Throw earlier this year. Fellow labelmate Mndsgn has remixed “Washed Out” from Mister Mellow and made it into something ideal for the rollerskating rink. Mndsgn’s sophomore album Body Wash came out in 2016.
Seattle producer Lophiile collaborated with Freddie Gibbs on his new single “Off Top.” The flashy single follows up Lophiile’s first release “Newno.” One can only assume that Lophiile is starting a full-fledged solo career after travelling the world as a member of the metal band ISSUES.
