There’s so much music out there nowadays, it’s so hard to decide what new releases you want to listen to. We know for a fact that you’re missing out on some gems so don’t worry, we’ve created a shortlist for you below.
BRYN – Clouds
On ‘Clouds’, BRYN effortlessly weaves pop-leaning hooks with trademark quick-fire bars to create her idiosyncratic style. It’s a track that showcases her two sonic personalities as an artist, one who nods towards trailblazing singers such as Avril Lavigne or Blondie’s Debbie Harry, as well as the UK’s thriving drill scene. BRYN is determined to tackle this imbalance and spearhead a new era for drill.
Nji – Pressure
Teaming up with SpiiceyBeatson production, ‘Pressure’ is a fierce and hard-hitting rap cruiser that enables Nji to showcase her reputable lyrical ability through various metaphors, similes, and wordplay, as well as displaying a real knowledge of the fundamental pillars of rap. Underpinned with an Afrobeat percussion that’s topped with an infectious melody and spacy synths, ‘Pressure’ is a smooth joint from the promising force.
O.C Lee X Nick Notes – Coco
Renowned for their unique lyrical ability and individual brilliance, Kent-natives OC LEE and Nick Notes transition away from their solo careers and come together for the brand new release ‘Coco’ as part of the OuttaCity collective. Leading the way for UK rap outside of the capital, the pair capitalise on years of experience, serving up an enthralling debut single paired with captivating visuals to match, smartly produced by fellow Kent-native Jay Parpworth.
Cam Thomas – Last Man Standing (Freestyle)
Accountant by day and aspiring hip-hop mogul by night, Cam is a rapper from Milton Keynes who’s style, flows and rhyme schemes are more akin to sound-tracked days and nights dominating local basketball courts. Tracks like ‘Last Man Standing’ demonstrate his creative vision as a musician and marketer by bringing a unique, financially-themed concept album to fruition through the thought-provoking tales he sculpts through his bars.
Tommy B – Blessings
On course to become one of the most exciting young prospects in the UK, Essex born rapper Tommy B emerges from his hiatus with the grimed drill cut ‘Blessings’. Layered with chest-rattling bass lines and punchy percussion, Tommy exploits his real rap aptitude to deliver a track primed with unrelenting kinetics and classic UK finesse.
