Richard Osborne Releases "Just Leave" Remix Featuring Dice Raw Of The Roots
British singer Richard Osborne and Philadelphia emcee Dice Raw link up for a remix to "Just Leave", from Richard's latest EP, "Late Night Thoughts”.
Richard Osborne, the twenty-three year old singer-songwriter from Ipswich, UK, is rekindling the British R&B genre by adding a heavy dose of smooth, sensual based soul to it. Linking with Grammy award winning Dice Raw of Philadelphia’s Legendary Roots Crew, for a remix of his latest single “Just Leave,” available to download now.
Richard’s sophomore EP, "Late Night Thoughts," has accumulated almost 5,000 downloads since its free digital release in February 2013. The new Kris Flava Produced retro, neo-soul single, "Just Leave," has enough melodic, moody-ambience to last an entire album.
Richard Osborne is quietly on the brink of something special. He was recently invited to the BBC Maida Vale Studios in London to attend their annual master class for musicians, on the cusp of breaking through to a wider audience. His laid-back R&B vocals mixed with strong melodic hooks, leave the listener in anticipation for a full length debut.
Dice Raw, a Grammy award winning artist and Grammy nominated producer, is widely known for his association with legendary hip-hop group, The Roots. He has featured on and co-produced numerous songs, on several of their albums. ‘Undun’ in late 2011, earned the band its third Grammy nomination for "Best Rap Album" in the last five years. Dice featured on four tracks, including the album's lead single, "Make My" featuring Big K.R.I.T.. The Philly emcee, currently working on material for a new album, has also collaborated with the likes of Jill Scott, Common, and Mos Def, and had songs featured in movie soundtracks such as Hancock, Superbad, Karate Kid, Stomp the Yard and The Hurricane.
A music video for “Just Leave” is set to premiere later this month. Directed by Adam Templeman, it has been shot & stars actress, model Jade Wallis.

DJ DN³ returns with a collection of 8-bit fueled compositions for his next project. This selection of instrumentals, remixes, and 're-fixes' comes as a tribute to a few of his favorite things. This project takes aim at the "Golden Age" of both genres of Hip-Hop and video gaming.

"LOAF Scripture", a song that ended up not making Mpulse's forthcoming project 'Sofa Gun: The Sequel' (Hosted by Don Cannon and coming this summer) is produced by Keef Boyd, and it helps explain the LOAF movement a little bit, so people can understand.
Esohel links up with Chicago's very own Add-2 on Silence Is Golden which is produced by Ricky Dubs off of their full length project "On Purpose With A Purpose". On Silence Is Golden, Esohel and Add-2 speak on current times and situations we are living at the moment bringing enlightenment through the music. The socially conscience driven song gets visual life with the help of director Sense Hernandez of Beast Factory Films. "On Purpose With a Purpose" is now available.
It may be a cliche to call a song cinematic, but from the moment I wrote Die Alone I knew the song deserved a video that looked like a movie. Shot in the California Desert with the incredibly talented Embryo, and a skeleton crew of my close friends, we made something that far exceeded our wildest expectations.
