Marvin Gaye – “What’s Going On” (@Motown / 2019)
This is powerful! Marvin Gaye’s classic 1971 slice of social commentary has been given a new video treatment, combining the soul legend’s heartfelt vocals from yesteryear with present day images of police brutality, political protest and human tragedy.

Terri Walker ft. Ty – “OK” (@TheRealMzWalker / 2019)
Rousing, life-affirming, funk-fuelled soul off the talented London-based vocalist’s Joe Buhdha-assisted EP “Breakout”.
An eclectic blend of flavours from the longstanding UK deejay, ranging from melodic drum & bass (“Make Moves”) and stripped-down space-age jazz (“Casey Freqz”), to broken-beat boom-bap (“Enquiring Minds”) and future-shock soul (“Shum Shum”).
This is a journey into sound….
Terri Walker ft. Rodney P – “Breakout” (@TheRealMzWalker / 2018)
This is something a little different to the usual Hip-Hop steez featured here on Old To The New. But when a tune is this heavy, it deserves all the support it gets.
Soulful vocalist Terri Walker showcases her Jamaican influences on this reggae-flavoured track produced by Nottingham’s mighty Joe Buhdha, with UK Hip-Hop pioneer Rodney P on-hand to deliver some lively Riddim Killa vibes.
Lookout for Terri’s new EP dropping early 2019.
