Submotion Orchestra just released a new track – Blend
Flexing their studio muscle with a whole host of new music, Submotion Orchestra are set to provide another production masterclass with their next single. Blend’ follows on from their cover of Robin S’ classic Show Me Love and reignites their summer plans after rescheduling a single and tour due to COVID-19.
Renowned for their inimitable work in the studio, the 6-piece Leeds band (like many) have had a rocky 2020, as they had to cancel a 6-date UK tour, as well as putting their release schedule on hold. Now they’re back in full swing, kickstarting their summer with Blend .
Incredibly cinematic and euphoric, ‘Blend’ comprises of delicate piano melodies, intricate percussive work and a break-beat influenced rhythm that carries the song effortlessly from start to finish. With warm bass rumbles, soft horn lines and an ever-impressive trademark vocal performance, Submotion Orchestra aren’t quite finished yet with 2020. On writing ‘Blend,’ they added:
“Blend’ is a track that explores the theme that endings are also beginnings. It’s a track that is intentionally raw in its honesty and performance and is intimate and personal too. We hope you enjoy it.”
Adding to their 5 albums and 3 EPs, it’s been an extremely busy decade for Submotion Orchestra, who are now in their tenth year as a band. They are often praised by the likes of Gilles Peterson, Trevor Nelson, Pete Tong, Don Letts and Lauren Laverne, who continue to support their unique blend of electronica and jazz time and time again. Headlining the 6,000 capacity Pula Amphitheatre at Outlook Festival, selling out the Barbican Theatre and The Forum for London’s Jazz Festival, as well as headlining the Royal Albert Hall is now something of the norm for them. But until touring is back on the cards, the studio is Submotion Orchestra’s outlet for now, who’s in?

Fast, on target, meaningful, the modern UK hip hop is a pledge to consistency. With the commercial focus on grime, hip hop artists were able to play and explore without the pressure of 1 mill copies. In the UK hip-hop, there is no fight for who’s the king. There is no king. There is only the oppression of Babylon and the fight against it.
