Ryan Hemsworth – Afterglow (Single)
6 August | | instrumental

Soothe your soul to a new one from Ryan Hemsworth, the master of emotional instrumentals. Afterglow is another delicate, lush composition that would have fit right in on his last album, Alone for the First Time. The song features live cello work, which is all you really need to know.

LAKIM ft. Sango – Açúcar (Single)
4 August | | instrumental

Two of Soulection’s finest, Lakim and Sango, have come together for a new tune. Açúcar, which translates to “sugar” in Portuguese, sounds even sweeter than you’d imagine. With LAKIM and Sango both heavily influenced by worldly sounds, it turns out Açúcar was an older idea that the two had for Da Rocinha 3, but decided to scrap it and give it away for free.
