REVIEW: "Fell In Love IN Brasil"

Jevon's Debut Project 'Fell In Love In Brasil' Doesn't Disappoint!!!

This is the first review we have done in some time and I would love to come up with a really cool story about how I discovered Jevon as an artist, but the reality is I heard one of his tracks on FIFA20 and I’ve been following his career ever since.

The West Londoner offers a debut project that has impressed me.  ‘Fell In Love In Brasil’ is a tribute to Jevon’s roots and culture that simultaneously illustrates the struggles faced growing up, having been sent to Coventry at 15 for his troublesome antics. The project reeks of samba flava, as well as the creativity of someone who has been influenced by the likes of Sergio Mendes or Sango, fusing multiple genres with a real samba / bosa nova core running through it.  Jevon weaves between smooth vocals and hard-edged lyrics in a flow pattern that really reminds me of early Dizzee Rascal.

As we move into the main body, you can really hear the amount of effort and heart that has been put into each track, especially with this album being three years in the making. Is a strong reflection of Jevon’s personal experiences floating between, grime, RnB, Hip Hop all laced with a Latin Portuguese flava. Doesn’t matter if it’s singing, spitting, English or Portuguese the delivery is exceptional.

Now I could do a walkthrough all the tracks of the album talking about the great Brazilian artists that Jevon has worked with on this album. I could talk about the themes covered such as love, emotion, feelings, social acceptance and self-reflection. Instead, I’m going to say just listen to the project from cover to cover this will definitely make my 6 month review and is a project I will be championing for the foreseeable future.

REVIEW: Seven Davis Jnr "ONE (Special Edition)

REVIEW :  Seven Davis Jnr Drops A New Version Of An Old EP 2014 I discovered Seven Davis Jnr when he dropped his FRIENDS EP.   The singer, Producer, Songwriter & rare Artist oozes talent. You can hear the influence of church in his progressive soulful house which makes sense as he trained as a gospel & jazz singer. Brought up on the vocal influences of artists such as Prince, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson. Other earlier influences include classical artists like Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr and Burt Bacharach. As Seven Davis Jr evolved, his interests navigated him into the mainstream/independent world where he began listening to a more diverse range of artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Portishead, The Fugees, The Beatles, Tricky, Bjork and of course the man we all come back to J Dilla who we show love to throughout season one especially Episode 4 House music & Jungle found a young teenage version of Seven Davis Jr in the city of San Franc


NEWS : Yeezy 700 Sun, Bright Blue and Wave Runner With another Yeezy 700 to release shortly are we seeing a change in styling and colour palette from Adidas and Yeezy? To date the most popular / desired colourway in this silhouette is the Yeezy 700 “Wave Runner”. The  Yeezy Boost 700 "Wave Runner"  absolutely transformed the industry when it was first unveiled back in 2017 as part of Kanye West's Yeezy Season line-up. Yeezy Mafia recently confirmed that this shoe will be getting a major restock this year (predicted August). Officially dubbed the "Solid Grey", the "Wave Runner" is as premium as it gets. Colour blocked to perfection, light grey leather and suede panels are contrasted by stark black nubuck, while pops of turquoise mesh also add a touch of colour into the mix. This, combined with the use of "Semi Frozen Yellow" laces, results in an aesthetic that has certainly stood the test of time. However, following this the colour palette for
