We might have missed out on this newcomer from the Midwest up till now, but it’s better late than never. And I’m sure you’ll agree once you’ve taken in the majesty and beauty of 1010 Benja SL’s R&B soul on recent single Wind Up Space. Tell me this isn’t a phenomenally moving piece, embellished with grand orchestral strings and brass. The electronic production on the song is immaculate, too, and 1010 Benja SL’s clarion voice emits such powerful anguish and regret. Wind Up Space is both cosmic and austere. Watch the starkly moving video for the song above, and stream his song Boofiness below, too.

Janice is an R&B newcomer from Sweden who’s already blowing up back at home. In fact, her debut album arrives very soon, on February 2nd, and she’s been nominated for a Swedish Grammy for Best New Act. It’s only a matter of time before she makes a wide imprint on the states. Just watch her new video for Queen, and revel in her exceptional voice, a sonorous and soulful knockout. It’s no wonder

Janice has been compared to the likes of Jessie Ware, Lianne La Havas, and Seinabo Sey. Janice’s single Queen is a resolute and powerful single, with luscious strings, rhapsodic organ chords, and heartfelt piano keys. Stream/download this knockout R&B pop/gospel pop ballad, here.
