R&B review ★★★★ AQUARIUS • TINASHE • Out 06.10.14

R&B review ★★★★ AQUARIUS • TINASHE • Out 06.10.14 | CHRONYX.be : we love new and future music releases ! | Scoop.it

--- by Andy Kellman ---

A showbiz kid by the age of three, Tinashe Kachingwe established her acting career in the 2000s, during which she had a recurring feature on the sitcom Two and a Half Men. She was briefly in a teen pop group, the Stunners, who once opened for Justin Bieber. After her group's 2011 split, Tinashe opted to go it alone with a low-key contemporary R&B sound. She cites The Velvet Rope as her favorite Janet Jackson album and seems to have learned from other mononymous R&B women who followed Jackson -- from Aaliyah to Cassie to Ciara -- yet she's too much her own artist to be dismissed as a sound-alike. Aquarius, released after some profile-raising mixtapes, is her first proper album, issued on major label RCA. She has garnered enough clout and a recording budget to benefit from collaborations with producers Mike WiLL, DJ Mustard, StarGate, and Boi-1da, along with guest appearances by ScHoolboy Q, Future, and A$AP Rocky. Mostly low-lit, slinking in tempo, and stitched together with several interludes, its obvious touchstones seem to be The Velvet Rope and the 1993 album that preceded it, though it's a track from 1986's Control, "Funny How Time Flies," that is used as the basis for "How Many Times." It's one of many bedroom slow jams that reward repeated listening. They're all laced with small details, subtle twists, and gradual intensification, exemplified by "Cold Sweat," a ballad seemingly composed with a group of at least four members in mind for its array of vocals. Compared to Christina Aguilera, another mentioned inspiration, Tinashe's voice is almost always quiet and soft, yet her ability is considerable, and she packs a wide variety of approaches. Another indicator of potential here is that she is listed first as the co-writer of all but one of the songs.

#Soul album review ★★★ THE WAY • MACY GRAY • out 07.10.14

#Soul album review ★★★ THE WAY • MACY GRAY • out 07.10.14 | CHRONYX.be : we love new and future music releases ! | Scoop.it

--- by Andy Kellman ---

After the diverse Covered and a song-by-song of Stevie Wonder's Talking Book, both of which were released by the Universal-distributed 429 in 2012, Macy Gray returned with a set of originals issued through her new label, named (honest) Happy Mel Boopy Touring Co. Compared to The Sellout, her previous album of original material, The Way is significantly less slick -- a no-fuss organic recording that involves some of the personnel from the 429 albums, including multi-instrumentalist Jeffrey "Zoux" Bluestein and guitarist Martin Estrada. There are some notable guest appearances, the most prominent of which comes from Booker T. Jones, who plays on and co-produced the blissful "First Time." Tracy Nelson and Ledisi contribute some vocals, though Nelson's wailing is strangely submerged in the mix of "I Miss the Sex." While the album is brief and was recorded in a relatively simplified setting, there is a wide range of approaches, including romping blues-rock ("Bang Bang"), lively disco ("Hands"), orchestral soul ("Queen of the Big Hurt"), and multiple shades of Southern soul (including the hushed "Stoned," in which Gray purrs, "I've got the giggles, and baby, I'm loads of fun"). The results are approximately as scattered. Gray's obvious comfort level and charm, however, help compensate for the less than ideal quantity of magnetizing material.

#Review • YOU'RE DEAD • FLYING LOTUS #Leftfield #HipHop #Jazz #Electro

#Review • YOU'RE DEAD • FLYING LOTUS #Leftfield #HipHop #Jazz #Electro | CHRONYX.be : we love new and future music releases ! | Scoop.it

--- by Andy Kellman ---
An early form of You're Dead! was the length of a double album -- a large mass of brief tracks that, for Steven Ellison, possibly signified nothing more than his fifth Flying Lotus album. As the producer and keyboardist spent more time absorbing and shaping the recordings, the title, initially comic in meaning, gained emotional weight while he was provoked to consider his mortality and the losses he has been dealt, including the deaths of his father and mother, his grandmother, his great aunt Alice Coltrane, and creative collaborator Austin Peralta. The completed You're Dead! consists of 19 tracks averaging two minutes in length that are intended to be heard in sequence from front to back. Its flow is even more liquid than that of Until the Quiet Comes, though the sounds are more jagged and free, with roots deeper in jazz. Ellison once again works extensively beside longtime comrades and pulls new collaborators into his sphere. All of them -- bassist and vocalist Thundercat, drummer Deantoni Parks, saxophonist Kamasi Washington, and many others worthy of mention -- help him push jazz, R&B, rap, and electronic music forward at once. Most striking and powerful of all is "Never Catch Me," easily the longest cut. An album's worth of ideas and a whirlwind guest appearance from rapper Kendrick Lamar are condensed into its four sonically rich minutes. The tone dramatically shifts with the following "Dead Man's Tetris," a sinister concoction of melodic bleeps and gunshot effects involving Ellison as Captain Murphy, and also Snoop Dogg, in which J Dilla, Freddie Mercury, and Peralta are all part of the afterlife fantasy. Previous Flying Lotus releases have their bleak and elegiac moments, but they're central here, highlighted by "Coronus, the Terminator" (an Ellison/Niki Randa duet), "Siren Song" (fronted by Dirty Projectors' Angel Deradoorian), and "Obligatory Cadence." The instrumentals range from playful, as reflected in titles like "Turkey Dog Coma" and "Turtles," to the distressed likes of "Tesla" and "Moment of Hesitation," with the latter two both anchored by Gene Coye's feverish percussion and Herbie Hancock's glimmering/flickering piano. It all plays out in a kind of elegantly careening fashion. It concludes with "The Protest," where Laura Darlington and Kimbra softly sing "We will live on forever" like a defiant mantra. Like his great aunt, and his great uncle John Coltrane, Ellison has created exceptionally progressive, stirring, and eternal art.

Listen • USHER feat. Juicy J • I Don't Mind (Audio)

Alors qu'il peaufine les dernières touches de son huitième album, encore non daté, le chanteur R&B en dévoile un quatrième extrait, partagé avec Juicy J. Sur "I Don't Mind", le tempo se fait plus doux et la voix plus sensuelle...


Usher sait comment mettre en émoi ses fans ! On ne connaît ni la date de sortie, ni le nom exact du huitième album ( "UR ?") que le chanteur américain prépare depuis de nombreux mois déjà en studio. Pour le moment, il faut se contenter d'un lien de pré-commande et d'une image non définitive, montrant l'interprète de "Yeah" assis dans un escalier, le regard séducteur. En revanche, plusieurs aperçus de la direction musicale prise par ce projet nous ont déjà été présentés. "She Came to Give It to You" (feat. Nicki Minaj et une apparition non créditée de Pharrell Williams) et "Good Kisser" ont déjà envahi les ondes radio, tout comme "Believe Me".

Désormais, place à "I Don't Mind" ! Ce titre enregistré avec le rappeur Juicy J est le quatrième titre de l'opus à bénéficier d'une exposition. Ici, Usher revient à ses premières amours : un R&B langoureux débordant de sensualité, calibré pour faire grimper la température... Minimaliste et reposant sur un gimmick électronique, le titre raconte la relation entre une strip-teaseuse et Usher. Ce dernier affirme ne pas être dérangé par l'activité de sa dulcinée... du moment qu'elle lui reste fidèle. Les envolée vocales du chanteur et la production, fluide, font tout le sel du titre. Un futur hit en vue ?

MARY J. BLIGE sortira un nouvel album - "LONDON SESSIONS" - le 2 décembre et "rêve de chanter en français"

MARY J. BLIGE sortira un nouvel album - "LONDON SESSIONS" - le 2 décembre et "rêve de chanter en français" | CHRONYX.be : we love new and future music releases ! | Scoop.it

• La diva américaine Mary J. Blige, qui sort le 2 décembre un nouvel album intégralement créé à Londres, a enflammé jeudi la scène du iTunes Festival. Elle a confié à l'AFP "rêver de chanter en français" et vouloir écrire son autobiographie.
• La star du R n'B, mèche blonde sur l'oeil et voix puissante, a confié avoir adoré entonner "Ne me quitte pas" à la fin du dîner d'Etat organisé en février à la Maison Blanche par le couple Obama pour François Hollande.
• "Je me suis sentie si bien en chantant devant le président français, c'était incroyable d'être à la Maison Blanche avec lui. Chanter pour lui en français, ça signifiait tellement pour moi", a-t-elle dit lors d'un entretien avec l'AFP.
"Mon rêve est de faire une chanson en français. J'adorerais ça", a ajouté l'artiste qui a chanté "petit papa Noël" sur son précédent album "Mary Christmas" (2013), qui réunissait les plus célèbres chansons de Noël.
• Un univers bien éloigné de son nouvel album baptisé "London Sessions" auquel ont collaboré plusieurs talents de la nouvelle génération britannique dont Disclosure, Sam Smith, Emeli Sandé ou Naughty Boy.
• "Ce disque est né du succès de ma collaboration avec Disclosure sur +F for You+. La chanson a en quelque sorte explosé ici, à Londres", a-t-elle expliqué.
"Après ce succès, l'idée était de faire un mini-album avec Disclosure", a ajouté la New-Yorkaise, fan d'Aretha Franklin, de Stevie Wonder et des chanteuses Chaka Khan et Caron Wheeler (Soul II Soul).                            
---- Sublime "Therapy" ----
• La star était alors entre deux maisons de disque et a signé avec Capitol qui lui a proposé "un album complet ici à Londres, entourée par les producteurs et auteurs londoniens".
• "J'ai donné beaucoup de liberté à Sam (Smith) qui a notamment écrit +Therapy+ et +If you're not loving you+. Je les ai tous laissé faire ce qu'ils voulaient et j'ai beaucoup aimé le résultat".
• Teinté du groove britannique, ce nouvel opus sonne beaucoup plus soul que ses tubes R n'B et doit permettre à la chanteuse primée à neuf reprises aux Grammy Awards et qui a déjà vendu 50 millions de disques dans le monde, d'étendre encore son influence.
"Cet album est là pour élargir mon public, j'espère toucher les Français (..) et le reste du monde qui va me découvrir sous une lumière très différente. J'espère qu'ils accepteront" cette évolution, a confié la chanteuse.
• C'est sans doute sur scène que la mutation est la plus flagrante. Pour son unique concert européen de l'année, Mary J. Blige a fait vibrer jeudi soir la Roundhouse, dans le cadre du iTunes Festival de Londres.
• Après une demi-heure de concert où elle a revisité "l'histoire de Mary J. Blige", "reine du R n'B", la chanteuse s'est transformée en diva soul en interprétant plusieurs titres de son nouvel album, plus mélodiques que dansants, dont le magnifique "Therapy", le tube de "London Sessions".
Un peu déconcerté par les morceaux plus lents, le public a adhéré à "Right Now", plus proche de l'univers qui a fait son succès.
Véritable bête de scène, l'Américaine, perchée sur des talons aiguilles vertigineux et toute de noir vêtue, a clos son show devant 3.000 spectateurs euphoriques avec la reprise de "One" de U2, puis ses deux titres "Be without You" et "No more Drama".
• Elle a confié ne pas vouloir se limiter à la scène musicale. "Je vais jouer au cinéma prochainement, il y a plusieurs projets qui se profilent", a-t-elle affirmé, sans vouloir en dire plus.
• "J'envisage aussi d'écrire un livre. Il portera sur moi, ma vie".
Une vie digne d'un scénario hollywoodien: née en janvier 1971 dans le Bronx à New York, abandonnée à 4 ans par son père qui lui a appris à chanter, agressée sexuellement à 5 ans, elle signe avec Uptown Records à 18 ans, sort son premier album à 20 ans, plonge dans la gloire en même temps que les problèmes de drogues et d'alcool avant de venir à bout de ses addictions.

New music • KENDRICK LAMAR has revealed new song : "I" #TDE

• Prod. by Rahki - Mixed By Ali

• The song is the first to be taken from Lamar's new album, the follow-up to 2012's 'Good Kid, MAAD City'. It features a sample of The Isley Brothers' 1973 song 'That Lady'.
• Speaking about his new album, which is expected to be released later this year, Lamar recently downplayed the chance of seeing multiple guest artists on the record. "I have so much to say," he commented. "It's almost selfish of me."
• He added that the album will feature a lot of "aggression and emotion... There was a lot left out of 'Good Kid…'. It could have been a 30-track album. There are a few new [tracks] that can tie in with what I was talking about." (http://minu.me/d69p)

First Listen • Big K.R.I.T. • New album CADILLACTICA

First Listen • Big K.R.I.T. • New album CADILLACTICA | CHRONYX.be : we love new and future music releases ! | Scoop.it

Big K.R.I.T partage son deuxième album Cadillactica en streaming!

--- par Tanguy Labrador Ruiz ---

Cadillactica n'est peut-être que le deuxième album de Justin Scott, mais il est loin d'être un débutant pour autant. Sa première mixtape, See Me On Top, date en effet de 2005. Et il en a réalisé 9 autres depuis, en plus de son premier album Live From the Underground.

Big K.R.I.T a habitué ses auditeurs à un hip-hop facile d'accès, mais composé et écrit tout en profondeur, évitant ainsi l'écueil des productions typées radiophoniques qui fleurissent un peu partout. Ainsi, sa mixtape ReturnOf4Eva fût une franche réussite, tant au niveau des textes que des productions. Live From The Underground divisa les fans de la première heure et les nouveaux venus, à cause de productions vides inattendues de la part du producteur, comme le single raté Money on The Floor, qui n'avait plus grand-chose à voir avec un morceau comme Dreamin, qui résume bien l'esprit habituel de l'artiste.

Ce nouvel album disponible en streaming est donc l'occasion idéale pour se faire une idée de la direction artistique choisie par le rappeur. À la première écoute, il semblerait qu'un compromis ait été effectué entre les deux univers. On retrouve en effet aussi bien des morceaux influencés par le blues et la soul, que des ambiances intimistes réalisées au synthé ou encore des beats lourds et caractéristiques que l'on retrouve habituellement chez des rappeurs comme 2Chainz, Lil Wayne et autre Pusha T.

L'album sortira le 11 novembre chez Def Jam.

http://focus.levif.be/culture/musique/big-k-r-i-t-partage-son-deuxieme-album-cadillactica-en-streaming/article-blog-323411.html


Big K.R.I.T. isn't supposed to still be here. Three years ago, the rapper and producer entered the mainstream rap world on the cover of XXL Magazine's 2011 Freshman class issue — arguably the best ever, including as it did Kendrick Lamar, YG, Mac Miller, Meek Mill and Lil B. More than half of the musicians so anointed then are building laudable, and original, bodies of work. Some of them are also commercially viable. And Big K.R.I.T., without a breakout hit and despite his aversion to bandwagons, is as highly regarded, mentioned and anticipated within the hip-hop world as those more recognizable names. K.R.I.T. seems to be sticking to a formula established by his fellow southerners, UGK and 8Ball and MJG: talent is enough. But if you know the histories of those two groups you'll remember that it's no minor miracle their skill and creativity surmounted industry obstacles...

CHRONYX.be's insight:

Le producteur et rappeur Big K.R.I.T. sortira prochainementi son deuxième album, Cadillactica. Celui-ci est déjà disponible en écoute intégrale.


BIG K.R.I.T. raps about what many rappers probably want to discuss (spirituality, discrimination, insecurity) but are afraid to. This strain of authenticity has cemented his place in the hearts of fans!

JAGGED EDGE bringing back real R&B ? • JE Heartbreak II Album Trailer - YouTube

https://itunes.apple.com/be/album/je-heartbreak-ii/id921602670?uo=4


On their eighth album, their first in three years, Jagged Edge return to Jermaine Dupri and So So Def. They also realign with Bryan-Michael Cox, the songwriter who had a hand in some of their biggest hits, including "Let's Get Married" and "Walked Outta Heaven." The Casey brothers, Kyle Norman, and Richard Wingo keep their circle small here, with only a handful of additional associates. It largely pays off. The album, presented as a sequel to their 2000 commercial breakthrough, is heavy on the type of slow jams — vulnerable but swaggering with deeply resonant basslines — for which the group has been known. There's a particularly fine stretch from the fourth through sixth tracks, all plush ballads, while later track "Make It Clear" rattles and thumps like little else and is so neatly arranged that griping about its rather ungainly materialism would be petty. In 2014, group R&B was in shorter supply than ever — an issue not addressed in the parts of the Recording Academy "state of R&B" discussion sampled in the album intro — so JE Heartbreak II's mere existence is worthy of attention. Just as striking, there are no guest rappers. Jagged Edge's attitude here seems to be a commendable "This is us, take it or leave it." They have one of their better albums to show for it.


CHRONYX.be's insight:

Le groupe JAGGED EDGE est de retour avec un nouvel album et compte bien ramener le "vrai" R&B au devant de la scène ;-)

#RnB review • POINT OF NO RETURN • KEYSHIA COLE

#RnB review • POINT OF NO RETURN • KEYSHIA COLE | CHRONYX.be : we love new and future music releases ! | Scoop.it

--- by Andy Kellman ---

Keyshia Cole has built a career on writing about emotional pain inflicted by her lovers. She takes it to her most explicit level yet on Point of No Return. The dark tone of her sixth album is set immediately with an EKG-like effect in the intro, which leads to "Heat of Passion," a sprawling ballad where Cole details her man's tryst and spits, "All that over some funk-ass pussy." She defiantly offers "I ain't catchin' no cases," only to later threaten, "Somebody better call the paramedic." There are points where it sounds like Cole is shaking. The song is so intense that background vocalist Faith Evans' support seems like it could be emotional as much as it is musical. Later in the album, Cole shows more of her combative side by comparing herself to Rick James and, perhaps unknowingly, through a reference to James' "Cold Blooded," Linda Blair. For all her vulnerability, Cole also reminds listeners that she's a boss who will tolerate only so much, and she continues to project defiant resilience. The lack of loose and uptempo moments, and the nondescript quality of back-to-back productions from the otherwise bankable Mike WiLL and DJ Mustard, make the album a stifling and leaden listen. Even the one song Cole didn't co-write, the sleek and booming slow jam "Believer" -- cooked up by StarGate, Ester Dean, and Jasper Cameron -- has undertones of danger and desperation. While Point of No Return is unfiltered Keyshia Cole, much of it consists of retraced and magnified steps. Hooks are fewer and less sharp, concealed by coarser language. It's the kind of album -- released past the peak of popularity, specific in lyrical detail, with nothing remotely near a crossover bid like "Let It Go" or "Heaven Sent" -- that seems destined to become a fan favorite.

Le WU-TANG CLAN fête ses 20 ans avec un nouvel album : A BETTER TOMORROW • Sortie le 28 novembre

Le WU-TANG CLAN fête ses 20 ans avec un nouvel album : A BETTER TOMORROW • Sortie le 28 novembre | CHRONYX.be : we love new and future music releases ! | Scoop.it

WU-TANG CLAN SIGNS WITH WARNER BROS. RECORDS
First Release to be 20th Anniversary Album, A Better Tomorrow, Available in Belgium November 28
• Warner Bros. Records (WBR) today announced that it has signed a global recording contract with legendary rap group Wu-Tang Clan, including RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa, and Cappadonna. As a group, Wu-Tang has sold over 6.5 million records in the US, while they’ve sold nearly 40 million records worldwide, including individual members' album sales as well as group sales collectively. The group’s first release on the label will be the highly-anticipated 20th anniversary album, A Better Tomorrow, which will be available in Belgium November 28th.
• Wu-Tang Clan said, “Wu-Tang Clan is excited to join the Warner family of esteemed artists. After 20 years in the business with different label outlets, we are delighted to be amongst a team of industry professionals who understand our unique artistry and will help spread it to the masses unadulterated. RZA and his brother Divine CEO of Wu-Tang felt synergy with executive/producer Rob Cavallo and Cameron Strang, and decided Warner Bros. would be a suitable home for their brand and band, and a great place to carry on the Wu-Tang saga. In the words of Ghostface, when it comes to being signed to Warner Bros., ‘we're getting Bugs Bunny money.’”
• Cameron Strang, Chairman & CEO, Warner Bros. Records, told Billboard, “Wu-Tang Clan is responsible for creating a deep discography of iconic rap music, spawning incredibly successful careers for each of the group’s individual members, and launching Wu-Tang into a full-fledged brand beyond their music. Two decades on, they remain a major force in hip hop. I speak for everyone on our team when I say how thrilled we are to be the new home for one of hip hop’s most influential groups. This is an exciting day in the history of Warner Bros. Records, and we can’t wait to contribute to the next phase of their careers.”
• Over the course of their career, the group has released five studio albums and 19 compilation albums. Each of their first three albums-- Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), Wu-Tang Forever and The W—have been certified platinum by the RIAA, with Wu-Tang Forever having debuted at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200.
• Emerging in 1993, the Staten Island, NY-based Wu-Tang Clan proved to be the most revolutionary rap group of the mid-’90s. Turning the standard concept of a hip-hop crew inside out, the Wu-Tang Clan were assembled as a loose congregation of nine MCs. Instead of releasing one album after another, the idea was to establish the Wu-Tang as a force with their debut album and then spin off into as many side projects as possible. In the process, the members all became individual stars.

New video clip • MACY GRAY • HANDS (Official) - YouTube

• "Je voulais faire un disque qui reflétait ce que j'étais devenue en tant que femme, mère et artiste", annonce l'artiste. Après avoir chanté les mots des autres avec "Covered" et "Talking Book" (album de reprises de Stevie Wonder du même nom), Macy Gray s'offre des créations originales.
• Sur dix titres, l'interprète de "I try" chante l'amour à travers plusieurs registres. Le son rock de "Bang Bang" met en valeur sa voix nasillarde, qui sait se faire plus susurrante sur "I miss the sex".
• "Hands" joue avec des sonorités pop alors que "The way" s'approche d'un morceau proche de la variété. On appréciera d'ailleurs aussi les envolées orchestrales de ce titre, comme sur d'autres qui mettent si bien en valeur la voix de Madame Gray.
• Macy Gray a été révélée au grand public avec son titre phare "I try" à la fin des années 1990. Identifiée comme une artiste soul, elle a souvent alterné les genres du hip-hop au rock alternatif en passant par le disco. Elle a vendu plus de 25 millions d'albums dans le monde. - http://minu.me/d7jc

UPDATE Le nouvel album de Kanye West serait prêt. C’est le rappeur Theophilus London qui l’annonce sur Instagram, expliquant qu’il a pris part à une listening party qui a eu lieu lors de la Fashion Week à Paris.

“Peu de temps après que la photo a été prise, je me souviens juste de Kanye nous faisant écouter son disque trois fois de suite dans une pièce sombre comprenant une vingtaine de personne et pogotant bourré avec des mad babes ahah”, écrit-il.

Il a aussi annoncé sur Twitter qu’il était invité sur l’album et sur le single à venir, mais que West continue de changer des choses ici et là.

Bref, ça pourrait débarquer rapidement.

CHRONYX.be's insight:

While Keyshia Cole‘s personal life is catching a lot of attention, the songstress is still moving forward with her upcoming project Point of No Return. Expected to be released on October 7, the singer is sticking to her guns and letting us know that she’s not looking back.

Filled with 11 tracks on the standard edition including “Rick James” and “She,” the album – according to Elijah Blake – will be one of the best and most solid body of works that we’ll have the pleasure of hearing. In addition to Juicy J, the album will host features from August Alsina, Wale, Future, 2 Chainz and production from Mike Will Made It, Mario Winans, Stargate, and RedOne.

While the standard edition will have 11 tracks, the Deluxe edition will offer two additional tracks by the name of “Party Ain’t A Party” and “Remember (Part 2)”.

New music • QUEEN & MICHAEL JACKSON • There Must Be More To Life Than This • BBC Radio 2 Audio Rip

• The King and Queen come together on one posthumous collaboration. Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson duet on the powerful ballad “There Must Be More to Life Than This”, which was written by Mercury during sessions for Queen’s 1981 album, “Hot Space”.
• A little background story on the record:
“It began as a song written by Mercury during sessions for Queen’s 1981 album, Hot Space. The band recorded a backing track, but the song was never completed. Mercury visited Michael Jackson at his home studio in Los Angeles where he recorded Jackson singing the song for an unfinished version. Queen revived the track during sessions for 1984’s The Works, but again it was not finished. A year later, Freddie’s own version of the song surfaced on his debut solo album, 1985’s Mr Bad Guy. This new production of the powerful ballad fuses Queen’s original backing track and Mercury and Jackson’s distinctive vocals, and has been produced and remixed by celebrated Madonna/Robbie Williams producer William Orbit”.
