Hj presents us with a Jordan Rakei meets Bearcubs vibe with his latest release titled “Feel”, an exquisitely soulful track led by quite a distinctive groove.
The more I listen to feel, the more I am nudged towards the edge of obsession with Hj’s drums! I loved the immaculate swing we’re introduced to along with the unpredictable nature of the snare. I can’t neglect to mention how the vulnerability in his songwriting paired with his smooth vocal delivery beautifully complements the arrangement of the keys.
The New Zealander brings an abundance of feel good vibes in the upcoming release, driven by groovy basslines, soulful BV’s, mellow electric piano and a laidback beat. Blending the best of Hip-Hop, Neo-Soul, and R&B elements, the track is reminiscent of Duckwrth, Anderson .Paak and Phony Ppl.
