Tis the season for Valentine giveaways, and LuckyMe heartbreakers Ango and Jacques Greene have teamed up to rework Sade’s classic No Ordinary Love. It’s a swoon-inducing tribute to the original, and you can download it for free by clicking here as well as checking out the (NSFW) trailer for the song below:
Ango is LuckyMe’s newest artist and his new EP, Another City Now, is currently available for audible consumption as you’re currently reading this. However, this isn’t your typical LuckyMe dancefloor burner release; Another City Now is a debut that focuses on the emotional weight of each track, oozing with inspiration and light at every turn. Full of nods to ’80s boogie, funk, RnB, as well as Ango’s strong vocal stamp, this debut release from the Canadian producer is sure to pluck at the heartstrings and bring out the funk hidden inside each and every one of us. Ango was more than kind enough to give URB a take on his inspiration for the record, with an in-depth personal take on each track, along with links to some vibes that put him onto the right path to each tune. Check it out after the jump.
Every summer since 1980, the Montreal Jazz Festival has given millions of people the opportunity to take inthousands of acts ranging from the biggest musicians in the world to that girl at Starbucks in the weird xylophone blues drum ‘n bass group. Last month, the city attracted more than 2.5 million visitors to check out 3,000 artists from 30 countries.
With music playing nonstop from noon to midnight at 10 free outdoor stages and an additional 10 concert halls, only the most curmudgeonly and elitist of your friends will find something to bitch about at this festival. And contrary to the name, countless genres besides jazz are represented, as our list of our 10 favorite acts shows.
OMG Y’ALL! So while I was busy getting my errands done this morning and then catching up with Eva Luna *pregnant pause*, “the highly anticipated” Jay Z and Sade collaboration was released on Jay Z’s new blog. This cut is supposed to come out on Sade’s upcoming The Ultimate Collection which is out on May 3rd. I personally think it’s nice to show the different ways you can cut a Sade song but I’m still not completely sold on it. I’m more of Sade House remix kinda gal — for now.
