Mainland BlockParty – “Confluence Project” 8

Jameson, the smooth Irish Whiskey, in partnership with Mainland Block Party, has released a first of its kind collaborative project — “Confluence EP“.

The 7-track project is aimed at celebrating Nigeria’s creative authenticity, by providing a sonic meeting point of different styles. Jointly produced by Sess and Adey, the EP crosses the divide between different artists and their sounds, building a single bridge to unite them all. The end-product is a cross-generational and cross-genre hybrid of songs offering a unique take on local music and sound appreciation.

Inspired by the confluence of Nigerian rivers Niger and Benue, the EP is a reflection of the inclusive brand message of Jameson and Mainland Block party. Everyone is welcome, individuality is championed, expression is sacred and originality is considered magic.

Confluence features African rappers including the legendary Naeto C, Headies-winning LadiPoe, the peculiar Terry Apala, rising star Alpha P, alternative flagbearer BOJ, soulful Buju and minstrel Fave.

The EP inclusively pitches multiple, differing creative styles, mixing them together to seek out a singular harmony. It comprises fresh takes on maturing sounds, unification of different schools of thought, cultures and textures into a project where everything and everyone is welcome.

I like the idea of collaboration. What really drew me into it was the reference they used on it. It felt like each person was interested in mashing up their songs in a way to advance the track, in respect to the other person,” says LadiPoe.

Working on this was a welcome challenge, with my experience in bringing sounds together. For the growth of the industry, that idea of collaborating, and seeing how you can merge with someone else and create something magical is seeing the industry in a bigger picture. It’s like putting the culture first,” says producer, Sess.

NEW MUSIC ALERT: MULTI-GENRE CROSS-BORDER ARTIST, ‘NISSA SEYCH’ RELEASES HER NEWEST SINGLE, ‘HAZY’ 13

Following the release of her hit singles, ‘Ghost’, ‘Yuh Know’ and ‘10/10’, Multi-genre Seychellois Creole-Canadian independent singer & songwriter, Nissa Seych releases her soon to be chart-topping single, “Hazy”.

Produced by Zeffir, ‘Hazy’  takes you on a long soul-soothing ride that allows your body and mind to experience Nissa’s vocals singing about how relationships can sometimes leave you undone. The crooner describes the song as “a heartfelt song that stems from a one-sided relationship, in which I felt like I was devoting more effort into helping someone flourish in all aspects of their lives while I was slowing down my own growth. Sometimes to love yourself, means to leave someone else”

Ripe and layered with emotion and on the verge of giving up on relationships, ‘Hazy’ heralds Nissa’s frustrations, sadness, disappointments and all the downsides of a one-sided relationship in this line “…I’m fed up, don’t want no loving…I’ve been giving all my energy”, from a story told in such a heartfelt manner, it leaves you in a sweet state of emotional vulnerability.

Nissa has always had an intrinsic understanding of her strength as an artist, especially after she realised that words in her heart can turn into a song on paper; therefore it comes as no surprise that she tells her story in such a riveting way. A truly gifted songwriter whose passion for songwriting was unveiled at the age of 8, Nissa’s secret lies in the great influence of her Creole culture on her vocal style which has always been eclectic and deeply rooted in her being.

Listen to ‘Hazy’ here and on all digital platforms.
