Hey Roulette, Can you tell our readers about what really inspired you to write music?

Roulette – What inspired me to write my music is that I wanted to tell people about my life and things that I experience. I feel the music is one of the true forms of art that may still remain for people to be truly honest about themselves and about what may be going on and going through in their lives. I decided to use a musical platform to tell my story and to get a lot of things off my chest and out of my mind to put it out there into the world. Being real with people and honest is important to me. I always say I’m just a God-fearing man that loves his family and pays his taxes.

When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?

Roulette – At first, me doing music and entertainment was more or less me trying to occupy my time and get a lot of things out of my mind and to kind of run away from my problems. I believe I decided to do things full-time as a career when I was told by my ex-wife that I shouldn’t waste my time doing it and then I’m not good at it. Music actually helps me to comfort a lot of problems in my life and get a lot of negative people out of my life.

Tell us what is so unique about you and your music?

Roulette – I believe my music is unique and it is also different because my music tells my life which is true to me and things that are going on. I also quote the Bible in my music and a lot of artists don’t do that. Also, I am true to who I am, myself, my brand, and my family, because everything I do I put God first and my family second.

Can you tell us about your latest releases and what inspired you to create them?

Roulette – My Music tells my life and things that I experience in life so my latest release “Dey Say” is about not caring what people say about you because people are always gonna talk about you whether they know the truth or not. My other release “Keep It 2” is about keeping things in a small circle with a small team of people you trust.

Can you give us a brief insight into your upcoming projects?

Roulette – My upcoming project is really focused on giving back to the community and taking care of the kids in the community.

What do you wish you were told when you first started making music that you think would help artists just starting out?

Roulette – I believe that anything that you’re doing you need to always trust your instincts and trust what your gut is telling you. It is very important to know the difference between someone being there for you to help you and someone being there for you so that they can just benefit from you. Also believe in your vision, yourself, and what you want to accomplish.

What do you do when you don’t do music (creative or otherwise) that you are passionate about? 

Roulette – I’m an actor, comedian, model, and entrepreneur. So I’m usually working on other projects but still find time to do music.

Adelide Takes a Bite Out of Temptation in New Disco-Inspired Track “Witness”

Adelide

In an innovative new release, Adelide, a prominent soul-pop artist from NYC, presents “Witness,” a song that artfully combines the rhythmic essence of 80s disco with a contemporary twist. This soulful track explores the theme of forbidden love and is characterized by lush synths, captivating rhythms, and Adelide’s compelling vocals.

“Witness” reinterprets the timeless tale of temptation within the context of a modern, queer romance. Adelide’s emotive and resonant vocals complement vibrant synths and bass lines inspired by funk, resulting in a nostalgic yet refreshingly unique soundscape. The song’s narrative draws parallels to the Garden of Eden, inviting listeners into a realm where passion and surrender intersect, establishing “Witness” as a poignant anthem for those who embrace love boldly.

The music video, directed by Margot Bennett, serves as a visual complement to the song’s themes. Set in a contemporary Garden of Eden, the video features stunning cinematography and choreography that immerse viewers in a dreamlike world of desire and temptation. Notably, the video includes a memorable scene of Adelide biting into a pear—an ironic twist on the forbidden apple—only to humorously spit it out at the crew’s insistence, injecting a touch of humor into the otherwise sensual visual narrative.

Adelide’s “Witness” offers more than just music; it provides an immersive experience for both the auditory and visual senses. With its infectious rhythm and captivating storyline, this track is positioned to make a significant impact in the soul-pop and disco revival genres.

Adelide continues to push artistic boundaries and redefine musical genres, making “Witness” essential listening and its accompanying video a must-see. Immerse yourself in this modern-day Eden and allow Adelide to guide you through the complexities of love in “Witness.”

Azu Yeché stirs a soulful serenity with his new single, “Leave Me Now”

AZU YECHÉ

BritishNigerian artist AZU YECHÉ demonstrates exceptional songwriting and musical talent in his latest single, “Leave Me Now.” This profoundly introspective song masterfully delivers a soul-stirring anthem for anyone who has encountered the heartache of a strained romantic relationship. It was entirely self-written and performed on the guitar, encapsulating the perspective of an individual grappling with a partner’s uncertain commitment.

Yeché’s decision to record his vocals in just one or two takes adds an authentic layer of vulnerability while amplifying the raw emotion of the moment. His collaboration with Jim Lawton in the studio has resulted in a subtle and warm production, allowing the song’s soulful core to shine through. Yeché’s musical style represents a captivating blend of soul, gospel, and African influences reminiscent of artists like Michael Kiwanuka, Lianne La Havas, Jordan Mackampa, and Leon Bridges. The slow-paced percussion and serene acoustic strings establish a contemplative ambiance, harmonizing flawlessly with Yeché’s commanding yet relaxed vocal performance.

Lyrically, “Leave Me Now” lays bare a heartfelt plea for genuine love, underscored by Yeché’s emotive delivery. The repeated lines, “If your lovin’ is ruled by someone else, leave me now, oh leave me now, if your lovin’ ain’t as strong as mine, leave me now, oh leave me now,” poignantly express the desperation and resignation of someone choosing to ultimately embrace the painful decision of separation rather than endure a half-hearted affection. His intimate and unguarded approach will enable the audience to deeply sense every pang of honesty expressed through the song.

Leave Me Now” represents a significant addition to any music collection and is a must-listen for enthusiasts of captivating soul music. Yeché, known for his two-part EP, Soul Afrikanah (part one and part two), which delved into his dual identity using folk and soul genres, showcases yet another dimension of his diverse artistry with this single. This further cements his prominent status in the realm of contemporary soul music.
