Last month we showcased the amazing hip-hop piece entitled Counterfeit skilfully wrapped by Chicago artists NoName,Saba,Phoelix and Brooklyn femcee Chelsea Reject.
The compelling song is included on the compilation Countdown 2 Midnight by Chi-Town collective 119 , which recruited some interesting names such as Kaytranada,Mick Jenkins,Ravyn Lenae,theMIND just to name a few.
Today we wanna bring to your attention another interesting jam performed by an artist equipped with soothing vocals and a real bright talent.
We’re talking about Chicago based singer/songwriter and producer Via Rosa , who caught the attention of production collective THEMpeople (in those days they were known as The Swaggstas),which gave her the opportunity to work alongside Chicago finest Chance the Rapper,Mick Jenkins and Vic Mensa.
Influenced by Sade, Billy Holiday and Gregory Isaacs in terms of vocals and Jay Dee,9th Wonder and Fly-Lo in terms of productions , the talented Via Rosa dropped two years ago her debut project called DeathViaLove , described as:
A way of describing the many ways which someone can die by way of love whether its through relationships, or the love of anything, for real, you can just die of too much of anything
Sit back and relax in order to appreciate the soulful downtempo r&b nut entitled HERstory masterfully produced by OnGaud.
OnGaud is a trio of producers which consists of Brian Montgomery, Billy Stevenson, and Quenton “SolarFive” Cole and together they cook raw beats using Ableton as weapon.
Their production credits counts big names such as Chance The Rapper,Donnie Trumpet,Joey Purp and Mick Jenkins.
