One of London’s most interesting artists Leo Kalyan has dropped another new tune to brighten up your week. Stranger was co-written by Leo with Shift K3Y, and sees Leo as ecclectic as ever while he roots himself with an R&B groove, giving him a solid base with wich to go musically nuts over. Keep it on a laid back tip!
Stranger is smooth-as-hell, Leo’s silky voice stealing the show, but almost jostling to hold back the waves of ecclectic electronic sounds. Keeping things spacious, letting every element of the tune have room to breather, Kalyan and Shift K3Y create a smokey soundscape. Stranger is both instinctively emotional and a multi layered synthetic enigma; turn it up and delve into it’s electronic mystery.

Due out in April is the single Touch from London House producer Shift K3y. It’s Garage-y R&B influenced tune that comes with a storming reMix package, featuring the likes of Oxford and this euphoric monster from the one and only Grum. We’re still waiting for a definite release date for Grum’s album so we can publish the glowing review of it we wrote last year before the record was pushed back after the well deserved success of his The Theme single, but in the meantime this will more than keep you going.
Grum takes the track from it’s Urban roots and drags it straight to the dancefloor. A rising symphony of thick synths and uplifting melodies riding over s stomping beat. This is peak time madness that harkens back to the days of packed superclubs rising and falling to the sounds of Euphoric Trance, but with that Grum, emotional Dreamwave twist. Retro in it’s progressions, modern in it’s sounds, this one is hands-in-the-air all the way through. Check out Annie Mac giving it a spin.
