Adreyn CashHere is some decadent fusion RnB courtesy of Jamaican born singer-songwriter and producer Adreyn Cash. Any opener that reminds me a bit of a Donnell Jones song is a must-listen in my book.

Cash co-produced his debut EP ‘Illusions’ alongside Nutty P (Ghetts, Shakka, Professor Green), 169 (Drake, Craig David, Stormzy), Jamal Woon (Wiley, Bonkaz, A2), and Farr Music’s Linden Berelowitz, among others.

Adreyn Cash also likes to mix it up a bit. ‘Breathe’ is an RnB drenched song with an 80s ‘Drive’ backdrop. His falsetto is prominent in the lo-fi ‘Gravity’ which morphs into grungy electronica. ‘Mama Papa’ thrusts the EP back into the 80s again with a blurred rock edge. ‘Sweetest Taste’ is a stripped back, guitar-driven track which showcases Cash’s toffee vocals. ‘Illusions’ rounds off with ‘Angel’s Lie (Stripped)’ which is simply beautiful and shoots a firecracker straight to your heart. The gospel qualities add a nice touch. It’s the stripped back version of the lead single ‘Angel’s Lie’ which surpassed the 100,000 mark on Spotify alone. And that’s no surprise as you can’t stop listening to it. I haven’t even mentioned the lyrics which reflect on the loss of innocence, “In the back seat, we lost our soul, and we promise to never let go, when angel’s lie.” Simply stunning.

‘Illusions’ is a memorable, compelling, varied EP from an intriguing new artist.
