Coe Lorenzo – Never Have I Ever

The fast emerging California emcee brings this dark, yet sensitive track, which poses a bag of questions to the listener. The production has a unique feel to it, and the flow fits in well with the beat too. Keep a look out for Coe Lorenzo!

Newton Colours – Where the Weather Went

An original collaboration between a British folk/rock singer and French electro/hip hop beat maker, this track showcases their ability to  weave genres into an engaging sound. This song brings a powerful energy and really great video to go with it! It delivers original sounding vocals and production too. Something outside the norm!

TOBi – Sweet Poison

Canadian artist Tobi brings a nice feel, and good vibe which delivers something different to others, something  worth immediate respect!  The vocals work well with the wavey production and it has an atmospheric vibe to it. Great stuff!

Caleb Steph – Can I Talk

An impressive debut track from the 20 year old rapper from Virginia, who brings a real authentic vibe, a solid range of mic skills and tons of character. Strong production by Soundwavve on this song, which was premiered on Beats 1 by Zane Lowe.

Rilès – MARIJUANA

A vivid and cinematic video from the French neo-soul artist, who brings great atmospheric vibe from the go. The vocals definitely match with the music, and this is one to kick back to and zone out! Look out for this promising artist!

 

MIGHTYLEXX – Ghosts in My Bag (feat. FONLON)

Some real underground vibes here from the emcee from (Don’t Kill the Messenger),  a Maryland based music and art collective. This is lyrically dark with a well suited and unpredictable piece of production. Very creative and outside of the box. Dope track!
