It’s hard to believe that Christmas is only five days away. Thank goodness I’ve finished all my Christmas shopping, though I’ve yet to wrap all the presents I bought. Let’s ring in some Christmas cheer and merry mirth with a seasonal present from trendsetting collective and esteemed record label Moving Castle. Though Joy is a collaboration involving versatile artist Mark Johns and charismatic electro/hip hop talent BLAISE, the dreamy melodious, jazzy snug song was produced by AObeats and Roget Chahayed. It also features additional vocals by SATICA, Madi, SAKIMA, and Robokid, with artwork by Robokid. Joy is a super stacked Moving Castle all-star affair, a mahogany flavored infusion of chill hip hop, pellucid R&B soul, and twinkling future beats. The song goes hand in hand with everything we love about Christmas, be it a warm fire, a glass of creamy eggnog, or plenty of cuddling with your boo. Naughty or nice, we all get to treasure this Joy. For those of you who are lucky enough to be in Southern California on January 27th, you can catch an incredible roster of Moving Castle talent live at Moving Castle World, tickets and more info can be found, here.

I’m sure we can think of more than twenty one questions to ponder regarding  mysterious newcomer Blaise, whom some may recognize as Blaise Railey from Louis The Child hit Phone Died, but let’s set all that wondering aside and fully submerse ourselves in what looks to be his debut single, 21 Questions. The R&B and hip hop number is laid back and meditative, yet incredibly hooking and addictive. There’s a profoundness to be found in all the questions posed in the soul searching piece and its vocoder treated, amply pitched vocals, which channel plenty of Cudi. Apparently, Gabriel Black and Imad Royal are also somehow involved with Blaise’s 21 Questions. You can say that our curiosity is more than piqued, and we look forward to learn more about Blaise.
