Noah Slee - Radar / Otherland
Noah Slee has burst onto the scene in dramatic fashion with his debut full-length Otherland. Radar represents a proper dancefloor treat among the variously soulful, plaintive and swaggering efforts within. Bleeding-edge production sensibilities and happy-go-lucky lyrics keep the vibe summery and mellow, yet his voice inspires a more emotional response. Marking the welcome re-emergence of the oft-maligned and awkwardly monickered 'neo-soul' sound, Otherland comfortably rubs shoulders with the likes of Mndsgn, Solange and James Blake, while maintaining a character and vision of its own.
Gleefully championed by Majestic Casual, it's a sublime debut across 17 tracks... the pick of which being this house-inspired ode to hanging-out with your peeps.
