Future Soul artists Hiatus Kaiyote have served us a delectable appetiser from ‘Choose Your Weapon’, their much-anticipated sophomore album due out in March 2015. I’m over the moon that we didn’t have to wait until then to hear this otherworldly music. The meeting of these great musical minds transcends simple earthly definition, but I’ll do my best. These artists are well worthy, given the rocket-ship of midnight oil burned in order to sculpt this intricate sonic masterpiece.

Multi-instrumentalist, singer and composer Meshell Ndegeocello has been a constant inspiration to musicians across the globe for more than two decades. Whilst she may not be a household name, it’s this semi-obscurity as an artist that allows her to be continuously original, eclectic and experimental. Her latest record, ‘Comet, Come to Me’ is no exception. Merging hip-hop, reggae, funk, soul, dub, jazz, electro, pop, blues, country, ambient, avant-garde—the list goes on—her eleventh studio album is the best yet for those who want to sample the full spectrum of Meshell’s complementary sonic palette.
