Ohmega Watts “Emeralds”
A SOHH favorite drops a surprise single! Ohmega Watts is back with Emeralds, a single that showcases his trademark approach to sampling soulful records. This looks to be the first in a series of several new singles.

Liam.M “I Don’t Need It”
We’ve featured Liam.M several times in the past (6 and counting I believe)… he always delivers. This is another head nodder.

Tonga “First Things First”
Mellow. Lofi. Soulful. This is a relaxing new instrumental track from Tonga.

Tonga is a multi-instrumentalist/producer out of San Diego. Born into a musical family, he was influenced by an early and constant exposure to various styles of music: Motown, reggae, jazz, and his father’s own Polynesian fusion music.

Bluestaeb “Alright”
Bossa Nove rhythms and trap drums… this works well here. It reminds me a little bit of Sango. This is a newly release single via Jakarta Records from his upcoming release Everything Is Always a Process.

Soul Choppa “Sunset”
Dusty soulful golden era boom bap. This is a stylistic nod to Pete Rock and other golden era production. Really nice vibes on this.

Deca “Petrified Forest”
Unapologetically boom bap. This is a new single from Flux by NYC-based artist/producer, Deca. It’s indicative of what you can expect to hear on the rest of the Flux album.

DUMI RIGHT frees the mind with "Liberation Music" • Word Is Bond

Dumi RIGHT ( of legendary golden-era hip-hop group Zimbabwe Legit ) returns with a poignant message on his new single titled “Liberation Music”. Over a slowed down, mellow sample, Dumi offers a novel approach to the state of affairs in his home country. He serves up social commentary on the angst and frustration of these times, while remaining positive, earnest, and at times even playful to avoid being trite and nihilistic.

“Liberation Music” serves as a solid precursor to his full project Doing It The Right Way. This latest release clearly demonstrates that over the years Dumi has continued to make progress and stay in step while remaining true to the culture and to himself by doing it the right way; eschewing fads and trends, never compromising principles and continuing to create entertaining, engaging and insightful music for the discerning listener.

“Void needs to be filled, soil needs to be tilled, We’ve had enough destroying now it’s time to rebuild, Excuse the interruption, didn’t mean to bust in, Forget these fools, let’s get these tools and start the construction!” – “Progress”

No1MC & Reckless Vandal shows us "Whats The deal" is [Video] • Word Is Bond

San Diego, CA. based emcee No1MC hit us up with the video for his song “Whats The deal”. The record is a fiery verbal assault from the emcee who kicks off with a solid opener “My book of rhymes got more flames than a book of matches/ Lui Kang when I kick this rapping, Hussein with the torture tactics…” over a somber backdrop. Hardcore heads would instantly recognize the sample but let’s give props to whom props is due, No1MC totally obliterates his verse while  Reckless Vandal comes through with a more laid-back vibe but he doesn’t disappoint one bit.

“Whats The deal” is taken from the “Conditional Struggle” album. STREAM / DOWNLOAD it HERE

Marlenà Taylor pontificates on love on her newest single "Wats Luv" [TWIB Premiere] • Word Is Bond

Rising rapper/poet Marlenà Taylor delivers a heartfelt message on her debut single titled “Wats Luv”.  Having made a smooth transition to making music, you can tell that she is deeply influenced by her spoken word background which makes for a vivid storytelling skillset. Over a somber soundscape, she dives into the topic headfirst with passion as she details her experience with an undecided lover. Far from seeking the listener’s sympathy, her aim is just for simple empathy from the audience. She is not sitting in the corner bawling her eyes out but rather confronting the situation immediately. The record features a vocal hook reminiscent of 90s RnB era from vocalist Dee’John who spices it up and brings it all to completion.

She explains:

“Wats Luv is a very personal song after I decided to call it quits. I feel as women, we tolerate a lot but at the end of it all every women have their breaking points and Wats Luv was my breaking point”
