3rdCultureKid – Mto (Rivers) (Independent, UK)

Lulu James is an exceptionally talented new artist who calls London, England home and goes by the stage name  3rdCultureKid. Her brand new single “Mto” is enchanting and draws you into its beautiful groove and leaves you wanting more. Click play below and see for yourself! 🙂

She was born in Tanzania and was raised there until she reached age  6.  She landed in Newcastle without a word of English or a thick enough coat, swapping Kilimanjaro for South Shields. A turbulent childhood followed, and by 16, Lulu was on her own.

After going back to Africa, to reconnect with her family, her roots and the music, the singer is now back with a fresh new sound that bridges her two worlds. Her music is a patchwork of stories woven from the many lives she’s already lived, told with an unabashed honest that is visceral.

Call Me Karizma – JOHNNY (Independent, New Prague, MN)

Call Me Karizma is an artist coming real live and correct from my home state, Minnesnowta. From a town, I hadn’t heard of by the name of New Prague, but calling Minneapolis home nowadays. I also happen to love the city of Prague in the Chezh Republic, so I’m feeling a vibe, to say the least…

All that irrelevant chatter aside, I’m gonna let the artist explain this one himself. Simply because his message is so raw, and so necessary right now in the USA, and I’m sure elsewhere. It is a message that should hit all too close to home for all my fellow Americans reading. And something my Global readers will no doubt recognize from the news headlines from here in the US.

Anywho, here goes…

I wrote this song to spread awareness.

  This is a statement about mental health. It is what I know about and am passionate about and this conversation should go hand in hand with gun control talks and that should not be taken any less seriously. This is a two-pronged issue that we need to open up the conversation about as wide as possible. If we talk about it we can make a change, even if it’s uncomfortable.

Take it as you will

Ben Fairey – Aygm [StoneTowerz Remix] (ZyridMusic, UK)

The lyric video linked below for Ben Fairey‘s “Aygm [StoneTowerz Remix]” has brought much peace to my soul recently.

Life can be overwhelming in so many ways. House music has always been a spiritual thing, and the music that can calm the soul, for me.

“Don’t know where I’d be without you. You are my sun and you are my moon. My heart was caged and you set it free! So grateful, for All You Give Me…” – Ben Fairey
