Krrum hails from England’s Dark Peak regino, which is a fitting place of origin for the broody, mysterious singer-producer. The 20-year-old musician cites Justin Vernon and Jai Paul as influences, and there’s definitely a murky indie R&B quality to “Morphine,” his intoxicating debut single.
Over a backbone of warm synths and clean guitar, Krrum shines both technically behind the booth and inside of it. His soulful, raspy voice is a fantastic tool, as he pitch bends and distorts it to give “Morphine” even more drama and darkness.
With a debut EP dropping in 2016, expect Krrum to be among the next crop of English artists overtaking the blog world.
It’s been a long minute since Jamie Woon shared music with his fans, about 4 years to be exact. He had people swooning over his sensual, soulful debut album Mirrorwriting in 2011 and even had a feature on Disclosure’s debut album Settle. Since then, he’s been somewhat non-existent. However, he’s officially come out into the spotlight again with a new a single. “Sharpness” displays the Jamie Woon everyone loves. His soulful, r&b-esque vocals shine above all and help create a smooth, catchy track. His second album will be hitting stores later this year and is bound to be one to watch. For now, check out the fresh tune below.

Disclosure‘s debut album Settle will be in stores tomorrow. To celebrate their release we invited one of our Internet friends Alicia Ortiz to write a bit about the features on the album.

With this project the brothers also break some new artists, revealing them to the mainstream. These sort of reveals help us with the music discovery process, so we got Alicia to write about each artist and tell us her favorite solo song from the artist.
