Joshua Coase’s Tracks Of The Week
Ruthven – Evil
When I first heard this track I instantly loved the sound but found it hard to believe that I was hearing a brand new track and not one from the 1980s!
Nonetheless it’s true! This track from Ruthven is brand new and perfectly recaptures the golden 80s pop generation which I adore.
This track has been released by the Paul Institute Collective, ran by Jai Paul and his brother A.K. Paul, who is a co-writer and engineer on this track.
Evil is a track performed by Ruthven, who is a professional firefighter who began making music in his spare time working nightshifts.
The Paul Institute aims to promote new up and coming British artists and certainly shines through on this track. I can’t wait to hear more from them and from Ruthven, whose vocals work perfectly in this synth driven, funk-soul track!
Charlotte Day Wilson – Doubt
Doubt is a brand new soul track from rising star Charlotte Day Wilson.
The singer from Toronto, Canada bares her soul on this track and reflects on this song as being her way of confronting things that she’s felt were holding her back and making it hard for her to feel deserving of love.
Doubt is Charlotte’s first single to be released this year following the release of her debut EP CDW in 2016, which featured the single Find You, boasting over four million streams on Spotify.
This track features wonderful vocals and a smooth backing accompaniment and I expect being things to come from Charlotte in the future.
Francis Novotny – Broken Arrow
Francis Novotny is an alternative/indie artist originally from Gothenburg, Sweden who now lives in Paris, France.
The producer was initially drawn towards the French house scene but then turned his attention towards making electronic, alternative pop.
Broken Arrow is a refreshingly different track combining influences from India and haunting A Capella vocal which breakthrough in various intervals in the track.
This track is a follow up to Francis’ debut EP Between the Lines, which was released in the Spring of this year, with the title track gaining over 320,000 streams on Spotify.
Turtel – Breslin
David Chudzinski, aka Turtel is a Marketing student at university in Canada who has just released his first track Breslin.
David spent a semester abroad in Berlin last summer but didn’t bring his guitar with him. As soon as he got back to Canada he proceeded to write the feature melody for this track.
David described his track to me as being “a jazzy, guitar, synth driven, electronic instrumental.”
His musical influences include the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Tom Misch and there is certainly evidence of influence from Tom in this track.
Connor Morrin’s Tracks Of The Week
Track reviews below written by Connor Morrin
J. Robb – TakeMee (Feat. Devin Tracy)
This beat is so addictive! All you want to do is hear it over and over again. J.Robb as a person just blows my mind – he is only 19 and his production is better than most people in industry.
His Soulection While Label Series 021 is definitely one to check out. DONT SLEEP ON IT.
Daryl Hall and John Oates – I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do) (Pomo Remix)
Daryl Hall and John Oates released their classic song I Cant Go For That (No Can Do) in 1981 and Pomo remixed it. All of Pomo’s remixes are so funky and vibrant.
He really does utilise the best parts of the original song. Another talented producer from Canada, giving his own twist on classic tunes.
DILIP – Flow
This song by DILIP is just perfect for unwinding. You can never beat an instrumental track, as it lets you just put your mind at rest.
What I love most about this track is the build up, each phase of the song is different to the last, making each part of it unique. Check it out if you need to chill, or brainstorm.
YE Ali – All the Time (Prod by Yusei)
This futuristic neo-R&B beat is so perfect. YE Ali, as an artist, reminds me a lot of Aftertheparty and Kanyiso. Smooth vocals on a mellow R&B instrumental.
The only sad thing about this beat is that it is only just over 2 minutes long, so I’m constantly having to hit repeat!
Joshua Coase’s Album Of The Week
Tokio Myers – Our Generation
Torville Jones, aka Tokio Myers is a pianist and music producer from North London who won Britain’s Got Talent in the summer of this year.
I have to admit I wasn’t aware of this until recently until I researched him but I was a fan of the tracks which were being released on Spotify and that is why he was brought to my attention.
Tokio is highly creative and skilled when it comes to incorporating the old with the new in his music, in particular his track Bloodstream, which combines Debussy’s Clair de lune with Bloodstream by Ed Sheeran.
Children is a standout track for me and one which is featuring on my show as well as Angel. While there a couple of tracks which are skippable this is overall a strong album and a perfect accompaniment to work to during your day!
