Cassie Marin – Disrepect

Cassie Marin’s “Disrepect” is our favorite track to date from the L.A.-based artist. We love the track’s spare production, use of space, and cool main piano chords set against its busier rhythmic bits. A+ from us.

A Label Called Success is the secondary for newcomer duo imugi and their track for “Greensmoke”. The track’s center is imugi singer Yery Cho’s great main melody and vocal, which spun over an instrumental of soulful electronics and subtly set bits of reverb and delay.

Arlo Parks – Cola

Anchored by a cool shuffle of bass and snare, “Cola” new from UK singer Arlo Parks, is as hypnotic in its construction as it is effective in communicating a potent melodic narrative. A+

Jerome Thomas – Bruises

Wow. Jerome Thomas has been on our radar for a little bit now. We loved his song “Stranger” from earlier this year. New track “Bruises” is special. Built on a School D’Angelo-Bilal-Maxwell, etc architecture, “Bruises” converts an immediate and really quite powerful lyric into what is a very very good track. Listen.

Premiere: Blush’ko – Japanese Hotel

New from Melbourne AU artist and producer Blush’ko is “Japanese Hotel”. A cool blend of darker R&B-inspired tones and a French house-leaning main break, “Japanese Hotel” was inspired by a dream. Blush’ko says, “‘Japanese Hotel’ was written about a dream I had. I never remember dreams, but I remember waking up after this one, saying. “Woah.. I need to write a song about this”. A+ track. Stream the B3SCI Premiere of Blush’ko’s “Japanese Hotel” below.
