Cariss Auburn – Imaginary Me

Wolverhampton artist Cariss Auburn is making future-facing RnB on her own terms. Across the four tracks of her new Imaginary Me EP, she showcases her promise and subsequently throwing her hat in the ring for ones to watch lists.

“Every now and again I’ll get hit with a wave of fear about my place in life versus the person I want to be,” she explains. “I wanted to confront that with the EP and let go of this ideal person made out of pressure and expectation. It’s a vulnerable feeling, it’s a process still and these songs are my diary entries.”

Run The Jewels – RTJ CU4TRO

Run The Jewels have shared a remix album that consists of features and reimaginings from latin American artists. “We set out to make a remix album, but we consider the end result of RTJ CU4TRO to be more than that”, says El-P in a statement. “It’s a reimagining of RTJ4 through the lens of collaboration and a fusing of numerous musical cultures and influences… A rare chance for us to connect, create and be inspired by people who we may never have had the chance to get down with if we weren’t lucky enough to be in a position to put it all together. We thank them for all their generosity, energy, and creativity. This is a piece of music filled with love, respect and craft and everyone truly gave it their all, genuinely humbling us in the process.”
