Leading the way during troubled times: ‘Ill’ by RABArtist is the relevantly self-aware anthem from one of the UK’s best

The breath-taking start lifts you up high into the gloomy sky, and you feel like this is going to be a pumping track with plenty of bluster. This notion is proved correct as the thudding beat with much promise and galaxy-sounding vocals, soon brings us into this powerfully real story. The UK Emcee and Actor, RABArtist is healthy and hungry on his newly dropped single called ‘Ill‘.

With a skillful production that pushes through the door from the patient musician, this is a fast-paced melody of mad skills that morphs on the mic with fluid energy. He raps about relevant topics that have taken over our lives and distracted the world from more important issues, now swept under the carpet and mostly forgotten. Issues such as 5G and Corona is all the papers and news talk about, only magnifying the growing frustration with lack of proper leadership at the top of the food chain.

Life was good and now the doom and gloom masks what is really going on, this is song that needs to be on all Hip Hop playlists to spread the message. With most Rappers carrying on per usual with lame raps about flashy cars on ego-boosting nursery rhymes, this is that adult type of music for the real music fans. With R&B, Grime and Drill influences, the beat is busty and fresh, with real care and compassion so evident.

The bars here are so refreshingly ‘Ill‘ and RABArtist leads the way with the call for level-heads to prevail and stop the current disillusionment, and frustration in the UK right now. Staying positive and bringing up important topics to help instigate change, is the sign of a true leader after all.

‘Old Dreams’ from London band Foreign TV is an ode to old school love

Old Dreams‘ from London band Foreign TV is an ode to old school love and the great moments that those give you in your veins.

This is a band with a unique style, you just know that they have made this song with their own sound and they don’t try and sound like anyone else in the world.

This is that laid-back vibe as you think about that special person in your life and how her hair flows, how she walks and talks. You are madly in love and this could be the one. Each thought you have is about her and you wish you could see her everyday for the rest of your days.

London band Foreign TV impressive massively with their new song ‘Old Dreams‘ and this is such a lovely track. With a UK rap style that is mixed into an indie track without pretentiousness. This is the type of track to enjoy late at night when you are relaxing after a long day. A top track that is such a worthwhile listen.
