Brittany Campbell Unveils BLM-inspired animated music video “Matter”

NYC's soul act and visual artist Brittany Campbell, who was featured on the cover of The Deli's issue #45 back in 2016, when print was still a thing, unveiled this animated video for the song Matter, dedicated to the BLM movement. "I wrote the song when the protests started happening nationally for this resurgence of the Black Live Matter movement" - says Brittany - "I was creating a lot of art, at the time, (both visual and sonic) in tribute to Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery etc…A lot of the visuals used in the video are those very same pieces. The song was brought to life by producer Sam Hoffman (Mereba)."

   

Yavin keeps the summer going in new single "Hot"

Yavin is not letting the summer heat go to waste, pouring every last drop of it onto his new single “Hot.” Like molten chocolate on ice cream, each verse drops to sweeten and melt the listener’s heart, exploring the summer passion one feels for another, the desires that feel endless as the longest days of the year. Yavin is no stranger to intoxicating beats and sleek production, but “Hot” is a step-up in that department, showing pristine sound and execution that preserves Yavin’s trademark sound so soft. The Boston artist is working hard and enjoying himself, harder; stream “Hot” below for something to groove to this week, and the rest of the summer. - René Cobar

The single Knot, streaming, is included in their debut, self titled LP out on August 28 on Exploding in Sound.
