[Audio] Leo Kalyan’s ‘Fingertips’

 

Leo Kalyan

London based Future R&B noodler Leo Kalyan is gearing up for the release of his début proper EP later this month. After a string of well received singles and the Stranger mixtape Leo is ready for his première label release on Believe Records, to be titled Silver Linings. Both Annie Mac and Mista Jam have supported his tunes on Radio1 as we are sure they will this new one. It’s called Fingertips; check it out.

Kalyan weaves a laid back, almost Tropical, breezyness into his sound on Fingertips. An emotional rush of hazy synths and springy, rolling R&B beats which Kalyan makes his own with this typical heartfelt croon. A woozy groove with a big rush of a chorus, Fingertips is a sweet teaser for the forthcoming EP.

[Audio] Leo Kalyan’s ‘Full Circle’

 

Leo Kalyan

Hello! the latest tune from Leo Kalyan may just be our favourite to date from the London based Future R&B experimentalist. It’s the next tune to be débuted from Leo’s upcoming mixtape, Stranger, and sees him sharing production duties with fellow Londoner and Bass man Grades. Here’s a  taste of what we can expect from Kalyan (big things we predict) in 2015; this is Full Circle.

Haunting yet infectious, Full Circle pulls off the neat trick of building an ethereal electronic soundscape, and still being funky as hell. Kalyan and Grades layer waves of half hear samples, voices and bird calls, amidst a sea of lush synths and delicate arpeggios. Leo’s voice curls over the track like smoke, tying the tack together with his dulcet tones. Feeling both Lo-Fi and expansive, Full Circle is the kind of track you can keep on repeat and just sink into.
