Clement Marfo - Let The Music Play

Clement Marfo - Let The Music Play

The South Londoner is back stronger than ever, on this uplifting and thought-provoking track which combines a heavy range of live instruments with some soulful vibes to build a solid bit of production. He challenges a range of social norms which society considers as facts, and following the questioning he leads into the glorious hook which is all about letting the music play. Clement has a very reputable track record, with his music featured on the BBC's coverage of the Olympics, as well as Sky Sports, NFL Super Bowl as well as WWE Royal Rumble!

J Hus & Jae5 remix French Montana's Unforgettable.

J Hus & Jae5 remix French Montana's Unforgettable.

He’s done it again! After creating one of the most highly anticipated and highly regarded debut albums of 2017, its just common sense he’d be able to remix one of the biggest songs of 2016/17 and still make it sound as good as the original!

Before talking about Hus though, we’ve gotta talk about his producer JAE5. The man is legendary just based off the ‘Common Sense’ album, but he took it one step further this time; completely changing the beat for French Montana's Unforgettable was a risky tactic but it paid off so well. The new beat is more afro, and more danceable compared to the original - even French Montana sounds more wavey over it! Then we have Hus’ calm, African accented lyrics pulling everything together, this has got to be one of those songs you listen to on speaker, around a BBQ with a few mates. As I said, East London’s finest has done it again.

Video: Manga Saint Hilare ft Jammz - Young (Prod. By Lewi B)

Manga’s vocals pair perfectly with Lewi B’s bouncy production in their latest offering. The video is a simple yet heart-warming take on young love, using stark shots of council housing and intimate conversations to set the tone. 

Let’s not forget Jammz' contribution either, as he sets pace once again following the release of the riotous ‘Oh Please.’ Keep your eyes peeled for these guys, and make sure not to miss Manga and Lewi B’s joint project ‘The Outskirts.’

Video: Not3s - Aladdin

Video: Not3s - Aladdin

With the rise of the afro funky beats and the half rapping half singing flow, we’ve had some very talented guys pop up and release some heavy summer bangers. This article is about a relatively new artist but he’s come onto the scene with a crazy sound, which also has garnered him some negative attention.

Not3s has been on the scene for some time now and his latest song 'Aladdin' is no different to the mad stuff we’ve heard from him before. Critics say he’s still riding off the ‘Addison Lee’ fame and he’s copying J Hus’ trap melody, but he really isn’t. His music’s more relevant to the person who just wants to enjoy themselves, 'Aladdin' for example laces some very calm lyrics about being fly over a funky beat but the chorus brings the whole song together. He sounds like he’s off the streets without mentioning anything illegal, a very smart trick for someone so young. I’m sure we can expect more feel-good bangers off this guy, and I as a fan of this new wave welcome it! Stay counting up them Not3s people!

Directed by Giada Ghiringhelli, this track's wavy visuals match the bass heavy beat, and the whole video is stylishly shot, reminiscent of A$AP Mob but with a very London feel to it! 

Keep a look out for these guys, doing big stuff in the UK in 2017!

Video: Charlie Sloth x Ghetts x Abra Cadabra - Running

Words: James Hailey

Fire in The Booth's main man, Charlie Sloth, has recently announced his latest joint, "The Plug". Taken from his forthcoming album is a beat that practically bleeds the dark and moody atmosphere.

Running, the tune in question, features the tones of grime legend Ghetts, and relatively new star Abra Cadabra. With the former being considered one of the pioneers of the scene, and the latter a recent recipient of a MOBO award, it's not really any surprise that they did more than just spit their bars, as they carved out the beat into a real gully tune, that'll be sure to be heard for a while.

Video: Hypo ft Rich The Kid & Suspect - Buss It Down

This is new video for 'Buss it Down' which features Suspect and Queens, NY rapper Rich The Kid. As one of the founding members of the crew Mashtown, Hypo has had his music played by the likes of Charlie Sloth and Tim Westwood. The tune will definitely go down well in the club with that minimal trap sound and is another in the string of dope transatlantic collabs!
