In The Spotlight

Wildest – “Sugar (The Choice is Yours)”

Blending modern electronic R&B and luscious soul, this trio of multi-instrumental musicians and producers is built on a great range of influences and musical abilities. Hailing from the UK, James Brander, Jack Bradbury and Harry Wright weave a vast spectrum of textures into their melodies and add a compelling lead vocal. They debuted their vivid, infectious sound with the single “Lift” in 2020.

Adding a dollop of vintage pop and a pinch of candied funk, their delicious new single is dripping with syrupy sweetness. With a potent beat, sparkling neon synths and joyous, soulful vocals melding together into a sticky and very tasty musical confection, this honeyed groove is a mouthwatering snack. Appetizing, truly scrumptious and flavorful, don’t forget to brush your teeth after listening.

Adryon de León – “Ally”

Born and raised in a tiny village in California, this singer and songwriter’s first musical influence was the gospel of a Baptist congregation. This was expanded with musical theatre, which gave her a gritty, soulful sound. She is a performer for Disneyland Resort and sang backing vocals for the likes of Macy Gray, Patti Austin and George Clinton. Since 2013 she’s a vocalist for the soul/funk band Orgone.

Inspired by the protests and rioting, which occurred two blocks from her home, in response to the death of George Floyd, her new single marries a lyrical statement with a Motown vibe. With a touch of Stevie Wonder’s swagger and Marvin Gaye’s clout, it’s the potent beat, vintage organ and rich guitar plucks, as well as her powerful, commanding vocals, that all merge together into an imposing soul jam.
