Mista – “Rescue” (Prod. by The Writer’s Block) | Official Music Video

Do you remember when British R&B (or R&B period) didn’t sound like it was infected by some Euro Pop/Euro Dance/Euro Trance disease? Remember when slow jams… used to ACTUALLY sound like *cough* slow jams? Yeah its been that long eh? Well a few days ago I came across this video by unsigned [yes unsigned!?] British R&B singer/songwriter by the name of Mista.

Scouring the interwebs for more information on this contemporary sounding mid tempo slow jam and artist I found out that the track was produced by South London production outfit The Writer’s Block [not to be confused with the London event] and is the first released of an as-yet-untitled project due for release later this year.

The visuals for the track, which was officially released two weeks ago on July 17th, were directed by Haile Arefaine, a member of The Writer’s Block family.

Being that Mista is unsigned its really difficult to tell the strength of the team behind him [pause!]. However, looking at the quality of the song and its accompanying video, I’d be very surprised if both Mista and The Writer’s Block aren’t writing and/or producing chart topping hits for some themselves and others in years to come.

Purchase Mista’s recently released single “Rescue” via iTunes UK.
