I’m very much afraid that words can do no justice to the artist I’m about to introduce, and any attempt to describe his blossoming creative output will merely be scraping at the surface of true beauty. JOSIAHWISE IS THE SERPENTWITHFEET is the real deal: his music unable to be defined, his vocals gifted both technically and emotionally.

Let’s take the frankly wonderful CURIOSITY OF OTHER MEN, full of vulnerability, sensuality and a dark narrative that challenges but never alienates the listener. And yet, in the hands of Copenhagen based producer CHLLNGR, he transforms himself into a modern (and highly marketable) r’n’b artist, with ambitions to take you from the dancefloor into your bedroom. Let me be quite clear; Brooklyn’s Josiah Wise is going to become a star, it’s just a question of when.

Dot Visions – Like


Dot Vi$ion$ is a New York based producer, rapper and songwriter that has got me VERY excited.

After an accidental soundcloud hop I found myself inadvertently listening to Like, taken from forthcoming mixtape Drastic Changes… and boy does it wet the appetite. With echoes of the r’n’b tinged electronica of The Weekend and the vocal confidence of Frank Ocean, his sparse skeletal beats are seductively expressed in nocturnal atmospherics. Its a remarkably confident way to announce yourself.
