LADI6 – ROYAL BLUE 3000 (Trap/Soul – New Zealand)

Ladi6

Active since the early 2000s, Christchurch-born purveyor of genre-bending soul hip-hop Ladi6 started out in all-girl crew Sheelahroc, but quickly made a name for herself with her sophisticated combination of sultry vocals, razor sharp beats and cosmic synths.

After a long silence, Ladi6 has shared “Royal Blue,” taken from the highly anticipated Royal Blue 3000 EP. This electronic-tinged yet soulful track is an interesting take on dancehall grooves with a twist.

On the EP, producers Parks and Brandon Haru have managed to expand on Ladi6’s sound by pairing minimalist atmospheric beats with warm, heartfelt vocals. The result sounds fresh and new despite its clear nods to early funk and hip-hop.
