Saint Cava take it Deeper on new single

Duos seem to be at the forefront of the new R&B sound in the Nordics, and Danish duo Saint Cava continue to demonstrate the impressive results a soulful vocalist and a skilled producer can create.

Since their debut, Saint Cava, Andreas Vasegaard, Erika de Casier, have turned heads with their dark R&B beats, soulful lyrics, matched with intriguing videos. Their new track 'Deeper', continues that theme. 'Deeper' opens gently before a deliciously deep bassline kicks in, and the sweet haunting vocals synonymous with Saint Cava draws you in.

Make no mistake, UK soul lovers love their music, and they know a great track when they hear it.

Coco Rouzier and Swedish producer Freddie Cruger aka Red Astaire recently released a 7" single with a stunning A & B side, and the demand for it has quickly grown, making it one of the most sought after vinyls in the UK.
We're not going to pretend this is anything but Jazz.

However, it's hard to deny there's a whole lot of soul in US singer/poet Dean Bowman vocals. Together with an exquisite Finnish production, it steers this track directly into our waters.

Danish/Italian R&B newcomer Mikala has released her first official video, to her second single - We Got It, and it leaves you feeling good.

Produced by David Mørup, the joyous harmonies, tight R&B riffs and Mikala's assured vocals on this track leaves you feeling optimistic and hopefully. In a world decidedly bereft of uplifting sentiments, it's a delight to hear.
