'June Bug' is the third solo LP from East London emcee/producer and one fourth of The Colony Cons... also known as Conspicuous. Cons has returned with a 12 track LP to follow up 2007's highly acclaimed "The Family Photo Album". This time opting to hand over all production credits to some UK heavyweight beatmakers such as AH fly, Apollo, Evil Ed, Apatight, S.Chu, M-Dot, Shears and S-Type, Cons has continued the soulful theme that has been the foundation of his previous work.
Cons has released 3 videos from the LP onto YouTube so far. "Human Race" is a narrative look into the characteristics that make us who we are produced by AH Fly (Universal Soldiers) and directed by Greg Wales. "Pain & Misery", a double time soulful introspective song that puts things into perspective produced by Shears and directed by Huw Caddy. Finally the banger that is "I'm So 90's", the flashback driven summer anthem that got exposure and support on BBC 1Xtra by DJ Semtex, Twin B and Charlie Sloth. This Hip-Hop anthem produced by S.Chu (Kano, Mitchell Bros, Shaun Escoffery) had a superb video directed by Nick Norton.
Also included on the CD as bonus tracks are the four different remix versions of 'I'm So 90's' featuring an immense line up of UK talent such as Kyza, Skillit, Shameless, Tor, Tempa, Lady Leshurr, No Lay, Malik, Tony D, TB, Remus, Cobane and Seanie T (videos also on YouTube). The forthcoming video "Clarity" features the vocal talents of Spoonface best known for his 2000 number 1 hit with Black Legend entitled 'The Trouble With Me'. Other featured guests include award winning poet Michael Groce, fellow Colony Member Grimlok, Kissez, Mr Ego, Jay Michaelz and Jay Pearce Cunningham.
The sound of the summer begins with the opening track "Can't get away" and finishes with "Echoes". Honest lyricism, soulful beats and catchy hook let summer 2011 commence.
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.
