Jai Paul - Jasmine
So unless you've been living under a rock the last week, you'll probably have heard about XL signing Jai Paul's new track, Jasmine, which trended heavily (though not quite as much as Samantha Brick) on Twitter over the last week, much to my surprise actually. The follow up to last year's incredible BTSTU, which was one of my favourite electronic songs of last year, it echoes Prince, and therefore echoes D'Angelo when he was actually a thing that it would be a compliment to be compared to. Smooth, soulful and pretty reminiscent of the sunshine for a guy from Rayner's Lane.
