We’re excited to release Palmistry’s new single “Water” today.
Palmistry is the project of London-based vocalist, songwriter and producer Benjy Keating, known for his stripped back pop and forward thinking production. “Water” is the first single from his sophomore album Afterlife, due May 2019.
Since the release of his debut, Pagan, he has been hunkered down in Athens, Greece & the Mixpak Studios in Brooklyn, NY making Afterlife. In the meantime, he has also had his work interpolated by Tory Lanez, Cashmere Cat & Major Lazer on “Miss You”, been tapped for production by Yung Lean, and made a full album for cult Vietnamese-Chinese artist Triad God.
“Water” is an intimate and impressionistic single produced by longtime collaborator SOPHIE, a woozy anthem about disconnection, and a taste of what’s to come
Today we’re sharing the official video for Firm and Strong. “Firm & Strong” arrives off of Popcaan’s widely-acclaimed sophomore album Forever, which saw him take his sound around the world and culminated with a historic sold-out performance in London at Wembley Arena and his own Unruly Festival in St. Thomas. The black-and-white video is directed by Nabil and follows Popcaan on an introspective journey through Jamaica as he reflects on the trials and tribulations of his youth, and how far he’s come as one of the country’s generational voices in music.
We’re so excited to share a new single from Afro B, Vybz Kartel, and Dre Skull, entitled “Shape Nice”.
Bringing together the sounds & vocal styles of London, New York, Jamaica and Africa, the song is an encapsulation of the ever-present dialogue between afro-pop & dancehall.
Afro B is one of London’s rising stars, with his hit song “Drogba (Joanna)”, which took over London in 2018 and is now on playlist rotation on NY radio. Meanwhile, Vybz Kartel continues to dominate dancehall, with an impressive career spanning decades and more hit songs than you can count. They are united by Dre Skull, who gives them a minimal Afropop beat sure to move your body this summer.
Popcaan’s “Silence” video is out tomorrow at 11 am NY/JA time! The visual for “Silence” follows a monumental 2018 for Popcaan, as he took his sound around the world with the release his highly-anticipated sophomore album Forever, culminating in a historic sold-out performance in London at Wembley Arena. Later that month, he returned home for his own Unruly Festival in St. Thomas and released the “Dun Rich” video with Davido. The new video serves as the first offering from Popcaan in 2019, a documentary-style portrait of life in his inner circle. Shot at intimate locations, from his childhood home, to his grandmother’s church, to his riverside hangout, it’s an insight into one of the defining voices of Jamaica today.
