Future Classic: Jose James “Lay you down”

Jose James returns to drop a few solo tracks after collabos with Jazzanova, Flying Lotus, Nicola Conte. Seriously, I still consider his “Dreamer” album to be wayyyy slept on. Nothing against Micheal Bubble, Jamie Cullum and others but in terms of Vocal Jazz, this is the real shit real here. …

Future Classic: Zansika “Never Change”

I’ve been sitting on this track for a little while now. I’ve been talking to ZANSIKA from London for a bit and i’ve been keeping a close eye on her productions and features. She’s as dope on a R&B jam like “Never Change” as she is on more uptempo stuff …
