It’s so refreshing to hear a new up and coming artist creating the music they love to do and doing it their way. When music is made out of purpose and passion then in my book it’s definitely worth a listen.
Regardless of what’s happening in the mainstream music industry and whatever the latest regurgitated sound being pumped out to the masses is, if you can still sound relevant but have a deeper message to send within your music then it’s a winning combination. That’s exactly how I felt when I first came across Nathan Jarrelle. Awesome music and wholesome content.
We caught up with Nathan so let’s hear from the man himself as he shares his story so far…
This weeks new beat is called “123”
It’s an old school boom bap beat reminiscent of something you’d hear in early 90’s Hip Hop. Funky bassline, some wah guitar hits and rhodes keys in there.
As always, I’d love to hear what you do with the beat! If it’s hot we’ll put in on the website.
It’s as easy as …123 ! It really is so click the link below and get your bars ready!
This weeks new beat is called “Bath”
Don’t ask me why it’s called that but it was a working title and it just stuck!
It’s an Old School Boom Bap Beat similar to something you’d hear in 90’s Hip Hop – I’ve been making a lot of these lately so I hope you like the sound. The drums are gritty, full of swing with a basic kick – snare shuffle and there’s a nice organ lead melody driving the beat.

New Ep from Rain Freedom. The Big Tall Wish combines lyrical poetry and boom bap hip hop. Experimental touches on the beats make things instantly infectious with vocal samples from the Twilight Zone keeping you engaged. The lyrical content is as always with Rain Freedom heartfelt and drawn from her own life experiences. I love this new musical offering from the London rapper, I just wish there were more tracks on the EP!
For todays Artist Feature we bring you singer – songwriter Jaysereh. Chilled out beats, lyrics with depth and melodies that will get stuck inside your head for hours!
Jaysereh, born March 11th 1987, has sung ever since she was a little girl. She actually knew how to sing before she started speaking. As she grew up in the nineties, she was influenced by the music of the time – always having a preference for soul, hip hop, R&B and reggae but she also enjoyed classical music, jazz and blues. Both listening to and creating! She played the violin and piano and sung her heart out in front of the bed room mirror, hoping one day she would become a singer.
We all want our vocals to come out sounding crisp, clear and professional. After all, we’ve taken the time to write our lyrics, practiced and practiced some more! So we don’t want it all to go to waste when we record. Here’s a few tips on how to get that perfect vocal take!
