The air turns soulful on our latest RA Session film. Andrew Ashong has the talent and presence to become a widely loved soul and R&B artist, but for now he's burning brightly on the edges of mainstream success. His breakthrough track, "Flowers," recorded with Theo Parrish, became a late summer anthem in 2012, its sticky Rhodes and simple vocal refrains soundtracking countless humid afternoons. Ashong tends to weave his voice around his accompanying instrumentation. On a track like "Special," which appeared on his self-titled second EP, he modulates his sparse lines so they glide among the song's plaintive guitars. His recorded music owes a debt to artists like Roy Ayers, but Ashong also has a foot in the club: his frequent DJs sets in London and beyond have helped him connect with an audience more attuned to beats than baritone. This duality was clear when Ashong and his group stopped by our London HQ for RA Sessions. This exclusive reimagining of his track "Never Dreamed" underpins rich emotive harmonies with the mechanistic thud of a drum machine.
