Charles Hammond Jr | “Hello, My Name Is”… [EP]


Chicago based Charles Hammond Jr just released his new project for us all to enjoy. The 4 track EP is a subtle fusion of warm Jazzy, Soulful + Funky moods and flavors. Im really feeling the journey here, and the only problem i had while listening was that it all ended too soon !.. However, he IS giving it away for Free so head over and pick up the full EP –  HERE !

Common | “Let’s Move” | Download


“From the vaults of the underground comes a never before heard tale from Chicago’s Greatest Street Poet, Common“. That was the message Dion Steele, who illustrated the video and also produced the killer beats, wrote when he posted it to his YouTube channel. The previously unreleased track he found down the back of his sofa appeared on the web last week. Well at least it’s something to keep us going until his new album release, “The Dreamer,The Believer” drops in December, and im not complaining either, “Let’s Move” is classic Common material!

Kamilah Sumner – The Songstress | “Never Bring Me Down” | New Single


This is what the music industry needs right now, more artists like Kamilah Sumner, full of soul and energy with a sexy edge. The 26 year old singer/songwriter is out of South Chicago, the hometown of Minnie Riperton, Chaka Khan and Sam Cooke and is aiming to bring the good times back to Soul/R&B. Already with a critically acclaimed Mixtape “Heart Of A Lion” under her belt featuring people like Mikkey Halsted, No ID, Bobby Creekwater & Kanye West, she’s now unleashed her hot new track “Never Bring Me Down”  just in time for the summer. The single has been getting big support here on the Meltdown Show and she is now building her international fans base. I rekon there’s gonna be big things ahead for this young star so remember the name, Kamilah Sumner.  She is like a breath of fresh air and someone you should get to know..Check out her band page here www.facebook.com/Kamilah-Sumner-The-Soulstress/
