at this point, Kuya James is basically a musical dodecahedron with the number of sides we've seen from him and the artists he's so expertly collaborated with.

There's nothing Stevie Jean can't do and Kuya James turns anything he touches into magic. Love, LOVE, love this.

Stevie Jean as you've never heard her, which is no surprise given that Kuya James seems to be making a habit of getting new essences from artists that we know and love already.

well this kuya james project is turning out to be one of the best new offerings of 2020. i love that the collabs are with people you've clearly already got a rapport with and that's gotta have something to do with why this works so well. that chorus is life giving!

Kind of obsessed with this new one from Kuya James and Emily Wurrramara. The production lands so graciously in this area that's neither organic nor electronic and there's a mean groove when it finally drops late in the track. Emily for her part sounds so different to how I've heard her before, what a versatile vocalist!

This is like a good laksa. Kuya James preps the nourishing meal base with these finely sliced ingredients and then Emily Wurramara gives it that spice injection on top!

Listen to the detail in Kuya James production! Each layer and speck of dust is just so. Teaming with Serina on this track is great too - she adds some soul to this smouldering track.

this might be a new project, but once you hear it you'll know kuya james is far from new to the game. the production, sounds, layers and flavours here are courtesy of a total pro.

Haven't heard Serina on a song like this one before but no surprise that her voice lends itself to a multitude of styles. Sounding really warm and natural through the production too

"Well here we go" I say to myself when I see a Kuya James x Stevie Jean collab. "Well here we GO" I emphasise to myself after I clicked play. So good!

Jimi has been one of the most underrated producers and beatmakers in Australia for a very long time. I'm hoping that the Kuya James project will allow that to change, and this dude finally gets the attention he deserves. His work is meticulous, impeccably crafted and consistently engaging - it's all about immersing yourself in a place entirely different to your own and going with it. ...

Jimi has been one of the most underrated producers and beatmakers in Australia for a very long time. I'm hoping that the Kuya James project will allow that to change, and this dude finally gets the attention he deserves. His work is meticulous, impeccably crafted and consistently engaging - it's all about immersing yourself in a place entirely different to your own and going with it. Serina's vocals are lush, the zither (is it a zither?) sample is hypnotic and that sub-bass work brings the exact sting in the tail that the song needs. Big love to my big brother on this new voyage - great things are ahead.
