Faces. | Soundcloud

UK newcomer Faces. dropped 2 remixes in the past week and they are summer sun soulful. Not much is known about this producer yet, but if this is any indicator of what he’s capable of then we’re definitely gluing our ears to the digital ground.

Marian Hill | Soundcloud | Buy Play

Marian Hill is a duo out of Philadelphia; they are joined live by a bassist/saxist. We had the privilege of catching them at School Night and were immediately addicted. Jeremy Lloyd controlled the sway with finger-tapped drums and samples on an MPK49. Steve Davit had the room swooning to jazzy saxophone and bass. Samantha Gongol’s bewitching, bluesy voice and seductive movements hypnotized the crowd.

Marian Hill is simple and sultry electro-soul and R&B fit for dim rooms and whisky. When it comes to production, less is definitely more with Marian Hill.

Lightning In A Bottle | Lineup | Tickets | Set Times

Kraak & Smaak are a trio from the Netherlands who have that whole “anti-genre” vibe about them that we love. You’ll find hints of jazz, disco, funk, indie, soul, pop, and house all throughout their music. Their 2013 album Chrome Waves is one of my favourites. They also host a weekly show on Sublime FM called Keep on Searching that spotlights the current underground as well as some rare, old school, dug-up tracks. It’s amazing.

They’re playing at 8:50pm on Saturday at the Lightning Stage – don’t miss out on what is promising to be a smooth and funky set.

LIB Spotlight brings attention to special artists that will be featured at Lightning In A Bottle Fest 2014.
Some we love. Some we just discovered. All essential.

Devonté Hynes, as Blood Orange, belts out soulful coastal pop. You’ll hear tinges of 80’s heartbreak disco ballads in his music too. While they may linger on the side of sorrow, the lyrics combined with flowing instrumentals bring about a special kind of calm. Considering all the guest appearances on Cupid Deluxe, you can be sure to see a party on stage Saturday.

Leo Kalyan | SoundCloud

London dreamer Leo Kalyan has been on our radar for a while; his remixes and covers are nothing short of sexy. His mashup-cover of Duke Dumont’s ‘Need U 100% ft. A*M*E’ and Jessie Ware’s ‘Running’ was what caught our ear. His recent original ‘Temptation’ sparked this spotlight. It’s like silk.

Jungle

London duo Jungle recently caught my ear with their absolutely addicting neo-soul arrangements. I’ve been into lounge music lately and these two definitely fit the bill. Think: lyrically bittersweet jazz-rock infused with a masterfully subtle tinge of electro-funk rhythm. Support their music here. Check their music video after the jump!
