This one floats.. I like the concept and anytime you're breaking it down the middle with some clicks you've got me. Love the atmosphere surrounding your voice on this one, gives it a cloudy, airy sensation.

Stir it up cause this is international, defs has that West Coast impression. "Confident" tears thru like a Comeback track but TASMAN has gone nowhere and won't be anytime soon with tracks like this.

Can feel the romance pulsating in this track. The hybrid talents MILA speaks of echo loudly in this summer dancey bop. That angelic voice takes flight.

"Tryna get it Hype with no Hypeman" is the everyday grind line that hits correct. IJALE'S voice is deeper than Sage The Gemini's but the bars are tighter. Love a good new skate track.

Stunning effort, a true testament here; Proof of what's possible when talented artists at their sharpest work together to turn something around in less than a week is impressive to say the least. Everything balances out like the perfect day, kicked off by a gorgeous Sunrise. Serving facts but mostly hope.

Echoing Nkechi's review here; This is BIG Glow Up Energy and your golden. Here for the clicks, claps, community cookout vibe of it all. It's brimming full of positive radiance channelling the early 90's RNB girl group sounds we all know and love mixed in with some Corinne Bailey Rae and Laura Mvula.

This creeps up and zips round the corners of your dome like a grimy rap bop I can get around. The sweet vocals in the middle really break up the bold angsty bars and both compliment each other well.

HOPE D does specifics better than most, and the devil is in the details here. Really builds too plays like a song from afar at first gives that dreamy affect than it drops in, clean and crisp vocals as well so good to hear and enjoy every word sang.

This hits the spot, like a warm memory from someone you used to crush on. Lands like a 90's feel-good theme song to a film I prolly watched too many times way back. Big song will have everyone singin along.

This feels like a triumph will for sure be on the festival favourites playlists in the near future. "Talk Too Much" would marry well with a sunny day, cutting shapes on a grassy dance floor.

Gives me the "Let's Wait Awhile" throwback vibe but reverse the intent. A sheer stand-out in this genre I've heard in a little while. The brood, the candles, balmy nights. You've cooked a feast for the R&B minds.

Ooo man those sirens in the middle chunk there hit me like callback to some distant memory. Some charming moment in time where I was younger and blissfully unaware of everything that lay ahead of me.

Bossy and in charge. I like it. Reckon "BIG BOY" could soundtrack some culty satanic party traditions of the late night variety in the future disco of my mind.
