For the past few years I have been obsessing about Neo-Soul music. The creamy yet syncopated feel to tracks is indulging and a break of silence has nearly as much impact on the listener as the jazzy chords which form the basis of the song.

Up and coming Californian Neo-Soul band – IDESIA
Breakthrough acts over the past few years have included: Haitus Kaiyote, Nai Palm, Tom Misch and Jordan Rakei, who follow in the footsteps of legends like D’Angelo, Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill. Vocalists are virtuosic and generally, the rhythm sections are tighter than ever. In conjunction with contemporary RnB and jazz/hip-hop fusion, artists have been creating new and innovative music which is sending us all into a state of tranquility.

Idesia – April Love
Haitus Kayote – Nakammara
Nai Palm – CrossFire
Joomanji – Something out of Nothing
Tom Misch – Wake Up This Day ft Jordan Rakei
Erykah Badu – Appletree
Lauryn Hill – Ex-Factor
