Surprising Finds from The Estates

More unknown R&B with Dreyce and Kieye, two artists that have been the highlight of their label (Frofar Records) compilations CDs back in the mid-2000s, for me at least. Multi-faceted, melodic and a touch melodramatic, "Lonely" especially is a gem of a song. The producer Richie De'rell had been linked to artists such as Nelly and Geniwine back in the day but in what capacity exactly I cannot say. There's not much information on the archive aside from a very retro flash advertisement for an mp3 player, presumably designed and marketed by the label themselves. As well as R&B and hip hop, they also dabbled in pop and indie rock music. A further artist from the label can be found here.
