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/

Dalindèo : Kallio
Dalindèo’s music is a cinematic jazz creation reminiscient of the ambience of movies by Finnish great Aki Kaurismäki mixed with a Tarantinoesque vibe of danger and suspense. Kallio, initially released only in Finland, won the prize of “Best Jazz Album of 2013” at the Emma-Awards, the Finnish Grammys. A musical hommage to the Kallio-district in Helsinki, it debuted on the Finnish album-chart at number 13, one of the highest ranking jazz albums of all time and stayed on the chart for 6 weeks. We at BBE are very proud to present Kallio to a wider, international audience now. Especially for the worldwide release on BBE the band added an exclusive unreleased bonus track to the album and BBE family-member Mr Bird did a brilliant remix of the track “Rhythm of Kallio”
