A few weeks back we were lucky enough to catch Melbourne’s Future Soul artist EMRSN live a when he was performing before TUXEDO & honestly, we were totally blown away by the richness of his vocals and the warmth of the production from the second we heard his sound.
We are continually in awe of the amount of the world class Australian artists who are really flying the flag for our scene. EMRSN is one of the new breed of local Future Soul acts we very much recommend you check out.
His latest releases “Down” sees EMRSN join forces with Jarreau Vandal – producer for international music collective Soulection. Teeming with his soulful vocals and dance floor feeling this is without doubt a jam you will hear us dropping in mixes and live sets.
“Down” is taken from EMRSN’s forthcoming debut album “TMRW” scheduled for release in early 2016.
Look out for more from him below/
