With this song, crooner Bilal begs the question, “How Do We Get Back To Love?” My assumption would be, with this song. Bilal has a way of making me feel some kind of way when I listen to his music which is mostly either in love, or dizzy with excitement.
This track will be making it’s home on Bilal’s upcoming release, A Love Surreal which will be dropping February 13 — just in times for Valentine’s Day. The production on this song is sick, and as always his lyrics and voice sound amazing. I never really have any negative Bilal critiques, just love him.
Purchase the song here via ITunes

This morning, Vibe Magazine premiered the new track from Bay Area based sayknowledge in the form of “Lap Up.” The track, which was produced by Mars Today and Mikos, will be making it’s home on sayknowledge’s upcoming album Vibe Called Quest. The album which will be released January 15th, can easily be summed up as the following:
“Quest” is essentially the ill in all life. All previous, all future. “Quest” is soul medicine, I offer the sugar to help the message go down. “Vibe Called Quest” is dedicated to those who recognize the ill in their own journey, regardless of intended destination.
Make sure to mark your calendars for the album release!
Every time I write out a post about singer Anthony David, I feel the need to be extra, extra wordy — so here it goes.
I remember I saw Anthony David for the first time, when he was touring with India Arie. He was her opening act and he was singing this song called “Smoke One.” The pothead father of mine (sorry dad) really liked the song and purchased his album — which I stole and put on my computer, burnt the CD and would listen it at school when I was in school early mornings.
Since songs like “Smoke One” and my personal favorite Anthony David song “Lady,” the singer has blossomed and kind of progressed somewhat from his soulful sound incorporating various elements within the soul, which is shown with his new funky effort “Can’t Look Down.”
This song, made it’s home on David’s new album, Love Out Loud, which was released November 17th. Following the first single from the album, “Sweet Pain,” David released the new visuals for this song today. Instead of turing to a sexy visual (here) David creates an adorable and romantic video with some pretty eye candy featuring singer Sepsenahki.
Make sure if you have not, get David’s album here — he got my boo Algebra out of musical hiatus.
Thus far, every track that I have heard from producer Long Arm has been amazing — the blend of jazz and organically smooth. Whether I was listening to “The Roots (40 Winks Remix)” “The Waterfall Inside Me” or the original version of this here track, “Perfect Morning,” everything has been great.
With that being said, the Orenburg producer is set to release his upcoming release The Branches Deluxe Edition, December 14th via Project Mooncircle. The album, which will serve as a rerelease with more tracks, and great artwork will be home to this here gem, “Perfect Morning (DDay One Remix).
“Therefore, the – now gatefold – artwork / transparent 2LP vinyl version, originally drawn by Bioniq was colourized by Roman Pokrovsky and, besides everything being remastered and including new work from Long Armhimself, we also added a second vinyl with various remixes by on the one hand like-minded artists like Hidden Orchestra, Dday One and 40 Winks, with whom Long Arm also shares artistic relationships and friendships, and on the other hand more genre-overarching and experimental remixes from such acclaimed artists as Robag Wruhme, Sieren, Yoko Duo, Berry Weight, Empt and Speck from CYNE, which will surely make for a unique listening experience.”
For the time being, make sure to listen to the tracks from the original The Branches, here and make sure to mark your calendar for the release.
