I was absolutely blown away by British sensation Emeli Sandé back in 2011, just ahead of the release of her debut album, Our Version of Events. I love her clarion voice and exceptional range, and I count myself lucky to have caught her in 2013 at the intimate Independent in San Francisco when she was already commanding massive crowds and giant venues back home in the UK (and performing at the Olympics in London, no less). Earlier this month, Emeli Sandé released her new EP, Kingdom Coming, and now she’s revealed a music video for its single, Higher, which features English rap legend Giggs as a guest. There’s nothing like a vibe-y slow burn dose of Emeli Sandé’s R&B soul and Giggs’ British hip hop. Higher is a wicked tune, and its video is a captivating accompaniment.

SLANG’s a new artist out of London on our radar, and he’s certainly caught our attention with an astonishing and unique genre bender named Cokeroaches. Indie rock meets breezy hip hop, UK grime, and chill electronica on the addictive tune. Its jaunty saunter leaves us much excited over this fortuitous find, which comes from SLANG”s new album fwENDZ, which is a fine full listen on Soundcloud, here. Support on iTunes, here.
