Episode 5 of the Merienda Mix Series is here. Had the pleasure of catching Jay Prince on his Beautiful Mercy Tour the other day so I figured I’d get back to the alt-R&B/hip hop vibes. Props to Ralph Hardy, Anik Khan, and DJ Zeke for holding it down.

In the mood for a chilled out alt-R&B track? Check out “Aubrey” by Brighton-based act Speelburg. The song has some of the most addicting vocals I’ve heard in a while. I’m definitely looking forward to hearing more of his stuff.
Been MIA lately and I apologize for that. In order to redeem myself, I’ve selected a gem of a track by UK duo Sylas. Dropped on their Soundcloud page earlier today, “Shore” is a beautifully arranged downtempo tune that gets better with each layer added onto it. If you like the song as much as I do, go ahead and check out another stellar track of their’s titled “Hollow”.
Their debut EP is scheduled to be released on 24/11/14 on Aesop.
Going through Kitty Cash’s “Love The Free Mixtape Vol. II”, one track that really sticks out to me is Kali Uchis’ “Real”. The Virginia-based singer gives us a track with just the right amounts of funk, soul, and alt-R&B to keep you bumpin’ from start to finish.
