Its time again for our Brand New Upfront mix featuring the best in Signed and Independent Soul Music.

Cover artist Emily King has brand new music coming out, and since "Distance" was on our list of best songs of last year, we were very excited. "Good Friend" doesn't disappoint. Friends of the blog Aaron Parnell Brown and Jully Black both have great music out there in "Somewhere Around" and "Fever" respectively. Worth seeking out on Bandcamp/iTunes. There's a tune from Carmen Rogers new LP STARGAZER in the form of the great "Heartless". Plus new music from Rhonda Thomas, Hiatus Kaiyote, the great Slum Village feat. Phife and much more.

Grizz returns at the weekend and ill be back with more good music next week. In the meantime....ENJOY!
