MP3: Baby Jaymes - "Heart & Soul"


From Audible Treats:

MP3: Baby Jaymes - "Heart & Soul"

The Song:

Singer/songwriter Baby Jaymes has released his new single, "Heart & Soul" via Clear Label Records, but it is hard to classify exactly what kind of song it is. In fact, his part-soul, part-R&B, part-hip-hop, part-mystery sound has led him to create an entirely new genre for himself: Ghetto Retro. The Oakland-based musician boasts a similarly expansive resume; in addition to having R&B legend Raphael Saadiq and funk luminary George Clinton as mentors and co-collaborators, he has also had songs featured in major motion pictures, such as Malibu's Most Wanted, My Baby's Daddy, and Any Given Sunday. Sometimes referred to as "The Black Beck," in reference to the genre-pushing rocker, Baby Jaymes' critically-acclaimed first album, The Baby Jaymes Record, has confirmed his status as a musical chameleon, as well as an artist to watch for.

And now, Baby Jaymes' new single, "Heart & Soul," is a declaration of who he is and his musical intentions. He addresses how his sound is different because he's not in it for the hustle, singing "Why you always doing you, do what everybody do, if you're really trying to get it?/ instead of trying to dumb me down, doing what they're doing now, here's something you won't forget." The track incorporates the staples of what you'd imagine Ghetto Retro to be like: DJ Touré, of Hieroglyphics fame, adds scratches that roll along with the Motown-like beat, complete with trumpets and harmony vocals, and Baby Jaymes' smooth and passionate voice is reminiscent of throwback greats like Stevie Wonder while still sounding fresh and new. People will inevitably still try to categorize Baby Jaymes with "Heart & Soul," but in the end, he just wants you to stop and enjoy the music.

MP3: Ace Reporter - "Lean Honey Lean (Swingset Committee Remix)"


From Audible Treats:

MP3: Ace Reporter - "Lean Honey Lean (Swingset Committee Remix)"

Brooklyn Artist Readies Second Live Show, Releases Dynamic Remix From New EP

The Song:

Ace Reporter is on assignment to play his music for the masses in 2011. His debut show at Cameo Gallery in February was a rousing success as Ace played songs from this threesixfive project and beyond to a packed room of lively fans. This Thursday, April 21st, Ace and his all-star band bring their live show city-side with a performance at The Delancey (168 Delancey St, New York). Tickets will be available at the door for $7 and fans are encouraged to get there early as Ace is scheduled to hit the stage at 9:15PM sharp.

Ace is also pleased to announce the release of a new single, "Lean Honey Lean (Swingset Committee remix)" from his recently released Arcadia EP. The remix finds nu-wavester's Swingset Committee injecting a kinetic strain of electro-energy into Ace's pulsating love song. A relative calm begins the remix, as a disarmingly ethereal incantation of the song's chorus floats above Swingset's hypotonic drums. The calm quickly gives way to an auditory assault of synthesizers and keyboards that fervently accompany Ace's ode to love eternal. "Oh I will follow you, Oh would you follow me?" asks Ace amidst an array of electronic eruptions – download the remix today and follow him into the eye of Swingset Committee's sonic storm.
