Sweet Lu Olutosin released a very entertaining Soul-Jazz albumWith a Billboard #1 Traditional Jazz album to his credit and a mission to rejuvenate the souls of audiences everywhere, "Sweet Lu" Olutosin continues to shine the light of his 'spirit music' with his latest release "Meet Me At The Crossroads".

As the album title suggests Sweet Lu invites the listener to meet him at the crossroads of R&B/Soul and Jazz music. 

For the occasion Lou has lyricised a number of classic Jazz instrumentals and included original songs as well. In doing so he has produced a very fresh and informative album. Lou is an excellent vocalist as well as a entertaining story teller at the same time.

EP releaseGirl Town is a generational project: father Jeff and daughter M'lissa. Together they have re-worked 5 classics into some very refreshing and new that will have appeal to all generations.

Exception To The RuleYerry Rellum orginating from Surinam and based in the Netherlands, recently released his hit single 'I Feel Love' with Walboomers Music. The track was heavily promoted on UbuntuFM Radio. Ikenna Okeh now sits down with Yerry for an in-depth interview.
