Big ups to Britain. If you search for new music as much as I do, you’ll quickly catch on to the fact that cities like London and Brighton are hotbeds of funky, forward-thinking electronica.
In the case of Lulu James, we head north to Newcastle upon Tyne. The sultry nu-soul singer first turned heads several months ago with her Rope Mirage EP, and now she’s back with something special.
“Be Safe” benefits from the masterful touch of Kidnap Kid and Hostage, who co-produced the track. This helps explain why it’s been on repeat all morning. Between Lulu James’ vocal command and those hypnotic percussion loops, my ears never stood a chance. Look for “Be Safe” to officially drop on November 19, compliments of Black Butter Records.
