Richer Unsigned Artist Of The Week – Orange Soul

With a bright, chime-like sound and lofty, ethereal vocals Brighton’s Orange Soul step up as our Artist Of The Week. The duo strikes a balance between indie rock and pop, with gorgeous arrangements and lush vocal harmonies vaguely reminiscent of the Beatles’ work in the late 60s, as well as acts like Death Cab for Cutie and M83. Our favourite track is “The Haze”, which you can check out below:

Richer Unsigned Best of October 2017 by MusicMap

The Richer Unsigned Best of October 2017 has been curated by MusicMap.  “MusicMap is a music discovery platform that celebrates independent artists from every corner of the globe. Primarily based in London and Barcelona but with scouts on every continent, MusicMap aims to uncover emerging music and exciting scenes via track posts, interviews and exclusive mixes. For this playlist, they selected five fresh international artists alongside five London-based acts who represent the cosmopolitan flavour of the UK capital…”

Take a listen to their favourite 10 emerging artists from around the world:

http://ift.tt/2x8blCN
1. Makola
Rising duo Makola have their roots in Finland and Ghana but their sound, an irrepressible explosion of hip-hop and afrobeat, could only ever have been forged in London. Their latest track, ‘All My People’, compares the frosty reception Ghanaian immigrants received in the ’50s to the more inclusive attitude that largely reigns in the capital today (“nowadays everyone’s your bruv”), and does so to an infectious beat bolstered by some exuberant samples. Look out for a debut album from Makola next year…

2. FEMME
British summers aren’t known for being particularly hot, but that hasn’t stopped London’s FEMME from bringing the 🔥 on her latest single.

Having previously scored hits with the fresh, ebullient pop of ‘Gold’ and ‘Fever Boy’, both of which were featured on last year’s Debutante album, ‘Fire With Fire’ finds the artist taking her sound in a new direction. Tossing a quintessentially London two-step beat into the mix, she adds smouldering bass and a sprinkling of finely sliced vocal edits. The result? This year’s first essential summer jam.

3. Luke Marzec
Anglo-Polish multi-instrumentalist Luke Marzec has spent most of his career as a session musician, but his debut solo track suggests it was only a matter of time before he stepped into the spotlight. The pensive electro-soul of ‘Another Guy’ recalls Mount Kimbie’s work with King Krule, with Marzec’s hoarse, plaintive vocals adding a distinctive texture to the deftly restrained production.

4. Amelia Payne
Barbados-born Amelia Payne recorded her first track aged just 13, which might explain why the now 19-year-old artist has such a fully rounded sound. Having already appeared on Bajan TV and radio, a move to study in London has helped her hone her skills still further, resulting in the addictive future-pop of tracks like recent single ‘Down’. Time will tell if she can follow in the footsteps of Barbados’ most famous musical export Rihanna, but she clearly has the talent to do so…

5. Tony Njoku
Tony Njoku is a London based electronic artist.

6. ANKA
For a long time the only ‘Anka’ in music was fifties singer Paul, but the late Canadian crooner’s New Zealand namesake ANKA is breaking through by doing something very different right now. The Auckland native is bubbling up with his slick production skills and rubbery, bass-driven beats, which have even popped up in a new adidas ad starring basketball star Damian Lillard.

7. Faizal Ddamba Mostrixx
Faizal Ddamba Mostrixx is a Ugandan artists.  A breakdancer, choreographer and social worker as well as a music producer, his recent album Tribal Match takes samples of traditional African music and places them in a powerful electronic context. “The motivation behind my work is to preserve and develop African cultural heritage”, Faizal Ddamba Mostrixx states, and his Nyege Nyege set will surely show he is succeeding.

8. Kuromoji
Kyoto’s kuromoji makes jazzy, tripped-out beats of a standard that Flying Lotus would be proud of. A skilled producer, he also strives to layer his creations with real-world recordings, carefully embedding the sound of his surroundings into his songs.

9. Lyzza
Lyzza is a Brazilian born, Amsterdam based DJ.

10. BENET
Influenced by artists from Elliot Smith to Ryuichi Sakamoto, BENET’s corresponding interest in folkloric music from Arabia, the Balkans and North America has helped forge a startling, mercurial record. Each track explores its own route, sometimes quietly reflective, sometimes rising to emotional crescendos.

Richer Unsigned Richer Unsigned Session – August

Our latest Richer Unsigned Sessiont went down on Sept. 7, 2017 with two more incredible acts gracing Cambridge Audio’s Melomania event space. As frequent readers of the blog will know, we choose our Unsigned Session acts from our monthly playlists, curated by guests the likes of Q Magazine and BBC 1’s Alice Levine. This time around, however, August’s bank holiday allowed us a unique chance to choose artists from not one but two playlists!

First up was FONX, the latest project from London-based musician Corey Fox-Fardell, who appeared on August’s ‘Best of’ playlist, curated by Reload Sessions. Having written and performed music in the past under a few different monikers, Corey is using FONX as a fresh start, with his first single “Hit Me Hard” landing on our August playlist. Coming from an artistic and musical family (dad is a professional singer, mum is a professional dancer), it’s no surprise that he’s got a knack for both melody and rhythm, describing his sound in his own words as “R&B pop, infused with jazz and soul, with some electronic elements”. In a live setting, FONX enlists friends to accompany him on stage, adding a collaborative element to the project. For our Unsigned Session, FONX was joined by his longtime friend; drummer and percussionist Elliot Agdomar.

The two met several years back while attending The BRIT school and remained close, both as friends and collaborators. Their chemistry was instantly apparent as they took the stage, and for just two performers, they really brought the house down! You can catch FONX at one his upcoming London gigs, and keep an ear out for his next single he tells us should be out in late October:

Next up was Bloom, a four-piece band from Brighton that appears on our ‘Best of September’ playlist, as chosen by Karousel Music. Singer and guitarist/keyboardist Emily moved from Scotland to go to college in Brighton where she met Megan, who also handles vocal duties on top of playing synthesizers in the band. Performing and writing for a number of years in various projects, it wasn’t until drummer Gruff and bassist Scottie joined the fold that Bloom was fully realized about two years ago, with the band releasing their first album What Is Life in October 2016. The band lovingly describes their sound as “cosmic pop” (Megan assures us that the next record will be “double cosmic”), and after hearing their ethereal harmonies entwined amidst bright synthesizers whirling around the Melomania space, we think that’s a perfect description! The band is finishing up their next single “The Ground” – which we got an exclusive sneak peek at – and then jumping feet first into the studio to start writing their next full-length album:

So what do the artists think of Richer Unsigned, and the platform we provide to both emerging and established artists?

“I think it’s amazing, especially being non-profit and at no cost for artists, because there’s not many opportunities out there for artists that are unsigned to get out there and play, so this is great”, said FONX, adding that he thought our Spotify playlists being on in all 53 of our stores nation-wide added massive benefit of exposure for new artists.

Bloom’s co-vocalist Meagan added, “It’s a lovely thing to do. We’ve been making DIY music for years, and it’s so nice to have a reputable ally who knows audio like Richer Sounds, to work with in the music industry.”

Richer Unsigned Artist Of The Week – Luna Rosa

Hitting a perfect mix of past and present alternative rock, Corby-based Luna Rosa is our Artist Of The Week. Layers of distorted, spacey guitars clash against splashy rolling drums, with a sound falling somewhere between vintage psychedelia and modern garage rock that will please ears across the spectrum, from Pink Floyd to American Football to The Arctic Monkeys (and lots of stops in between)! Check out one of our favourite tracks “Mercurial Man” and hear for yourself:
