Music Monday: Eric Darius, BLOND:ISH x Francis Mercier x Amadou & Mariam, Eva Shaw ft. Thouxanbanfauni & DB Bantino, Hermitude & The Jungle Giants, and Bok Nero

Jazz/R&B Saxophonist, Songwriter, Producer, and Performer, Eric Darius is thrilled to release his new single, “That’s My Jam”, which is out now. That’s My Jam is a song that Darius wrote that pays homage to one of his closest friends who recently passed, Willie Payne.
 
The song features Justin Lee Shultz. Darius most recently dropped, “Summer Feelin’” Featuring Paul Jackson, Jr., the first single from his upcoming album which became a rallying anthem of hope during the pandemic, capturing the feeling of togetherness.

Recorded originally in the 1990s, ‘Sete Djon Ye’ is one of the earliest hits from iconic Malian musical duo Amadou & Mariam, whose long and storied journey has included Grammy nominations and opening slots for U2, Coldplay, and Blur. Now recontextualized from its original West African blues into a sleek deep house stormer by acclaimed producers BLOND:ISH (Canada) and Francis Mercier (Haiti), this magnificent song transcends the ages while losing none of its mesmerizing heartfelt power.

Marking her first release of the year, multifaceted talent and DJ/producer Eva Shaw returns to the release radar with the alluring new single “Midnight Strangers” with Thouxanbanfauni and DBBantino. The latest follows Eva Shaw’s December collaboration with DB Bantino, ‘24 Hrs’, and her July collaboration with Thouxanbanfauni, ‘RAQX’.

Acclaimed Australian electronic duo Hermitude have linked up with indie-rock outfit The Jungle Giants for the latest single ahead of their forthcoming album, ‘Mirror Mountain’, which just dropped on May 6th.

Rounding the corner on his previous release of “No Brakes,” Bok Nero fuses his fiery vocals with hard grimy trap drums to create the explosive high-powered single “DROP.” The track packs a punch, seamlessly transitioning from heavy 808s and striking rap verses to robust future bass style drops. From the start, Bok Nero’s achieves an effortless “bounce” that so many in rap music crave.
