Today in a week, on March 23, New York R&B singer Deva Mahal will release her debut album on Motéma Music. You best describe Deva’s music as infectious, pulse-pounding soul with a decidedly modern edge.
Who remembers the ESTRUS label? Great inspiration in the 90s, with such fantastic bands like The Mono Men, The Makers, and Man Or Astroman. Not to forget the unbelievable quirky Mummies or Von Zippers. And although the only album by The Astronettes is not on the label, I bought it from their mail order service.
This week’s featured artist fuvk definitely finds her music to be therapeutic. She started writing lyrics as a coping mechanism for depression and anxiety, and she hopes that people can find a sense of relatability through her words. Even if people can’t share her experiences, they probably can understand her sentiments in the music and lyrics and find solace in that kind of solidarity.

On February 20, London’s resident So Kobayashi released the EP With You on RF, with two new tracks and two remixes. All songs both invite you to dance and dream. Start into the weekend with this chillout soundtrack!
From time to time, you hear a song that is so perfect and commercially viable that you ask yourself, “how is this not a major record already?” We used this statement already for our artist of the week in early February Kris Angelis.
