Sways delivers a laidback summer tinged single “Sweet One”

By Tayo Odutola Word Is Bond

Emerging UK emcee Sways comes through this weekend with something mellow and calming. His new self-produced single “Sweet One” is a chilled, hearty piece that showcases his silky flows and fun-filled style of writing.

He makes use of a chilled, atmospheric backdrop to good use and gives the listener a nice glimpse into his world. He doesn’t particularly stick to a topic but shares a variety of bravado laden flows and a subtle tribute to a certain lady with a summer vibe. His flow is a mix of Grime/drill effortlessly done over the lush backdrop and it’s quite engaging too.

Sways is a producer/rapper from South London.

“Armed with the name of a brain disease I’d never heard of, I set out on a mission to understand it, and that led me down my unchosen path of advocacy,” Williams’ widow, Schneider Williams, told Entertainment Weekly in a statement. “With invaluable help from leading medical experts, I saw that what Robin and I had gone through, finally made sense — our experience matched up with the science.”

“And what I discovered along the way was bigger than me and bigger than Robin,” she continued. “The full story was revealed during the making of this film, and it holds the truth that Robin and I had been searching for.”

Last month would have been Williams’ 68th birthday. He is survived by Scheinder and three children.

“We had been discussing what we wanted our legacies to be in life; when it was our time to go, how we wanted to have made people feel,” she recalled. “Without missing a beat, Robin said, ‘I want to help people be less afraid.'”

Check out the official trailer for Robin’s Wish below. The film will be released on September 1.

JOE CHO shares 3 tracks for our listening pleasure

By Tayo Odutola Word Is Bond

Korean Singer JOE CHO makes his debut on TWIB with 3 tracks namely “Wake U Up”, “How Much” and “Every Night.”

The first song in question is “Wake U Up,” a jazz-infused/RnB track that sounds like something from a 70s romantic flick. CHO sounds at home here and delivers his lines in both Korean and English. The summer vibe on this one is prevalent and showcases CHO’s sublime vocals and range. The track is well suited for a cool evening sitting with your significant other. 

“Wake U Up” is produced by CHUL PD while Young CHO plays the guitar on it.

“How Much”  has a chilled laidback feel than the previous song and it sees CHO dwelling on the love between two parties. CHO goes for a sultry performance here mostly because of the soothing backdrop made up of lush and somewhat airy textures. It’s quite heartwarming and once again shows CHO’s versatility. The other element I dig a lot is the way he fuses two languages and you don’t even need to understand Korean because you can truly feel him when he sings it.

The last track we got from CHO is “Every Night” and it’s a soft acoustic guitar-driven record that he says is inspired by the feeling you get when you call your lover every night. He delivers a plethora of alluring melodic runs that engulf the solemn backdrop like melted butter over hot pancakes. CHO sure knows his strengths and gives us a solid performance that betrays his love for classic RnB tunes. His style is highly steeped in that realm but with his own twist thus making him unique in many ways.

The tracks are quite engaging and the choice of instruments and fusion of jazz, RnB/soul works extremely well as CHO effortllessly delivers the goods with his honeyed vocals and passionate lyrics.

PAV4N teams up with Sukh Knight & Ishani on “DOOM” [VIDEO]

By Tayo Odutola Word Is Bond

The hard-hitting vocal laden track “DOOM”  by Foreign Beggars frontman Pav4n gets the visual treatment and its mind-blowing.

Backed by the booming beat by underground production legend Sukh Knight, PAV4N delivers a fiery performance as he goes forth to break down the centuries age structures made by man to suppress us. PAV4N  is still sharp as ever with the pen as he takes on the rest of 2020 with righteous destroyer energy akin to Shiva and Kali. He acknowledges that the powers that be have made used of this pandemic to carry out nefarious activities from capitalizing on health issues to make a profit and making laws to keep the common man on the dirt but he is not having any of it and uses his platform to shed light on the current situation.

The visuals are quite stunning and just writing about it doesn’t do it enough justice. From the mythical aesthetics, colorful costumes and effects, PAV4N fully represents his Indian roots in a very enthralling and unapologetic manner.

“DOOM” is the 3rd solo release from PAV4N and the vinyl will be out on the 21st of this month. It’s available as a limited run on PAV4N’s website, the lavishly-made saffron and blue 12 inch vinyl comes packaged in stunning artwork from Osom Studios and photography by award-winning Indian photographer Mitsun Soni. It features two A-sides, ‘DOOM’ and 2020 FE DEAD, with both tracks dropping digitally before then, alongside accompanying music videos.

This special release also marks the beginning of PAV4N’s new record label 4NC¥ (@4ncurrency), which is dedicated to breaking records from new talent and seasoned artists alike. 4NC¥ will focus on the cross-pollination of Indian and international artists through collaborative projects. Speaking of the label, which launches 20th July, PAV4N says:

“I want to create a global platform for incredible artists and to connect scenes from around the world. With so much societal division and now heavy restrictions on travel, breaking these boundaries and subversion through unity is even more important now than ever before. My dream for 4NC¥ is to facilitate meaningful exchange so artists can break new ground with their careers on a global scale.”
