Free Candy: Esau Mwamwaya and other people you've never heard of

Posted By on Fri, Aug 8, 2008 at 5:18 PM

The African Phil Collins.

Esau Mwamwaya feat. Santogold and M.I.A.- "Get It Up"
The Malawian emigre living in London calls himself the African Phil Collins. He's hooked up with Radioclit dudes, who've so far put him over the "Paper Planes" beat and this sick casino-chimes track from Architecture in Helsinki. There's a mixtape coming soon that I'm counting on being the best thing ever. [The Fader]

Johnny Johnson-"Love is Blue"

Ghostface borrowed heavily from this song in "Shakey Dog." As fervent as that song is, the original might have it beat on raw emotion. [Soul Sides]

Richard Swift- "Would You"
Hipster blue-eyed soul sounds terrible, but this isn't. You can get a free Swift EP via eMusic. [Gorilla vs. Bear]
