Riveting. Stunning. Stellar. Sampha finally has given us a debut that is beyond this world. Winner of the 2017 Mercury Price, Process reaches out and will take your breath away. It’s so human and yet so inventive. From the opener “Plastic 100C”, you will feel like you are floating away and touching the stars through the voice of Sampha. And songs like “Timmy’s Prayer”, “(No One Knows Me) Like The Piano” and “Blood On Me” are just as captivating. Hands down, the best R&B debut in 2017.

Top Tracks: Plastic 100C, Timmy’s Prayer, (No One Knows Me) Like The Piano

“I’ve been a romantic for so long,” sings Romy as she and Oliver profess their emotions and let loose on their 3rd album. Because of Jamie xx’s debut album, I See You’s concept is based  on growth and being open to forward ideas. Thus, this gives the group one of their dance worthy albums to date.
