Producer Jaime & vocalist Sherly, have a new EP out today. They been teasing new music since the first cut ‘Be There’ hit #19 on Spotify’s Viral 50. Last year the pair released ‘Faster Better Stronger’, a slice of alt-R&B which has drawn praise from Your EDM, Magnetic Magazine and EDM Joy.
The EP includes the recently released empowering cut ‘Ballerina’ and the more organic sounding ‘Always’. To help their fans during the lockdown they also filmed a Quarantine Live version of ‘Ballerina’, which you can watch below.
Through the 4-track EP, the two artists combine their individual strengths to create a crossover of music genres; Jaime’s future-tinged, R&B-influenced production delivers a technically mature and expansive sound over which Sherly’s commanding nu-soul-inflected vocals carry the songs through awe-inspiring melodies.
Known for his forward-thinking production skills, switching between future bass, electronic and touches of hip hop and R&B, Jaime has worked as music director, producer and drummer for some of the biggest names in the German-speaking European markets, including R&B and hip hop artists Cassandra Steen – known for her collaboration with Ne-Yo – Bausa, Cro, Azet and Zuna. While rising vocalist and songwriter Sherly is heavily influenced by alternative R&B ballads and early 2000s aesthetics, encompassing elements of Nao, Ashanti, Amerie and Lianne La Havas.
‘Couleurs’ is the resulting sound of the powerful artistic pairing between two artists with their own strong individual approach meeting to create a must-hear collaboration.
