Droopy seductive late night vibes envelop us on I Might.

Esteemed tastemaking label Soulection is celebrating their 6th birthday, and in doing so, they’ve put together a special compilation named Promise Once More. Australian singer songwriter and producer James Chatburn contributes a stunning first single of the year to that release, delivering a jaw dropping array of creamy swooning vocals and dusky rumbling minimalist electronica on Omens. The song is sparsely mesmeric and darkly gripping, a finely nuanced electro soul lullaby coated with viscous synths and sticky magnetic drums. James Chatburn only had one release last year in the form of debut EP 001, but he’s prepared to unleash a wealth of new music on us this year. Soulection’s Promise Once More compilation is available from all major outlets, here. Happy birthday, Soulection. Thanks for all the fine tunes.

Sexy doesn’t even begin to describe this next one, a glistening sleek remix of LA duo MKTO’s new single Superstitious by East Coaster and Soulection artist Chris McClenney. He gives the song a debonair dance edit with plenteous thick future garage vibes and a generous dose of funky soulful allure. This sizzling hot official remix is way too sumptuous, sending electricity straight through my veins.

Last month, Los Angeles based producer Kero Uno (fka Kero One) dropped a steamy jam named Princess Diamond, featuring Made In Heights’ Kelsey Bulkin on captivating vocals.

Soulection premiered a heady new electronic track from UK artist and production duo The Code. Aptly named Electronica, it’s a scintillating, trippy listen, an experimental electronic soul song that sounds like an intricate, wigged out Kaytranada styled approach on The Weeknd. The Code actually re-worked Justin Timberlake on their previous jaw dropping track Blue Ocean Floor. Electronica undulates and pulses in a haunting, tense fashion, woozily bouncing with a hint of trap and seductively wooing with its vocoder treated vocals. The Code mysteriously quips in the soundcloud blurb: “prelude to the beginning of creating art”. Perhaps much more artful music is to come soon.

UK producer Mura Masa dropped his new 7 track EP, Someday Somewhere, a few days ago, and it’s a spectacular release from start to finish. So much so, that I had much trouble deciding what I’d like to share with you today, and will probably be dropping more of the tracks on the EP sometime soon on IHM. Today, let’s focus on album opener Are You There. Alex Crossnan blends tantalizing future soul and electronic R&B fluidly on the effervescent and haunting jam. If you want to jump on the rest of Someday Somewhere’s sensational brilliance, you can stream the full EP, here

Atlanta based Soulection producer Gravez teams up with London’s Oshi on their new trap track Sell Soul. It sells, alright. Smooth soul blends with a Hudson Mohawke like grunt filled heady production. It’s a booming yet wavey experience. Sell Soul is 1 of 2 songs Gravez decided to let loose on us for the holidays. The second such jam is a collaboration with the UK’s DIVERSA, named Serenity. Even more intoxicating, there’s a jittery, electrified effect at play on Serenity that counters its name. The SBTRKT, jungly like drum work is also very entrancing.

Mura Masa dropped a spectacular new track recently named I’ll Be Alright (Tonight). As soon as you hit the play button, you’ll recognize who and what the Soulection signed Indonesian artist edits on the alluring, seductive downtempo R&B song. Mura Masa crafts a late night aperitif out of Childish Gambino’s cover of Usher’s U Don’t Have To Call, giving it a minimalist, jazzy atmosphere and a velvety smoothness.

Here’s my very first remix share of the day, out of plenty to come, and boy, is this a beautiful, melting, and sensual one to start them off. James Vincent McMorrow’s music is already so incredibly stirring and velvety, but Soulection producer Atu takes JVM’s Glacier into some mega plush and luxuriant territory on his future soul flavored rendition. Try not to diffuse into the air and sigh the longest sigh you’ve ever sighed as the song gently fades away at the end.
