Aaliyah Esprit

The seductive pink hues, inner-city setting and shuddering graphics in the video for Aaliyah Esprit’s debut ‘Energy’ are symbolic of her sound. With its honeyed r’n’b vocal, oscillating synths and moody rhythms, it’s a downtempo, sensual ode of the highest calibre. The Bristol-based artist is part of Gilles Peterson’s mentoring scheme, and has been honing her craft as a singer-songwriter with the Cosmic Soul Collective. Expect more hazy r’n’b soon.
