ShelovesYj – WOAH: Hard-Hitting High-Vibe Hip Hop

If your high vibe hip hop playlists aren’t hitting the same, the enlivening energy and unique lyrical depth in ShelovesYj’s latest single, WOAH, will prove to be a worthy playlist staple.

It’s so much more than your average hedonist hip hop track. While many artists use their high vibe tracks to brag about their excess and dominant personalities, there’s a far more vulnerable side to WOAH. With lines such as “every day I try to find the light, got a lot of pain inside, just gotta keep smiling because the demon will rise”, the sense of realism is resounding. And honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever connected with a hip hop in quite the same way.

At the age of just 16-years-old, the Ontario, Canada-based freestyle artist is proving to be a force to be reckoned with.

The official music video that premiered on March 6th is now available to stream via YouTube.

Catfish has dropped their mindfully melodic feat of New Wave Hip Hop ‘No Magic’

Toronto-based artist and producer, Catfish, may only be 19-years-old, but they’re already exuding maturity and nuance within their uniquely beguilingly soulful signature Hip Hop sound. It is artists such as Catfish that leave me assured that the future of music is in safe hands.

While I appreciate aggression is a form of catharsis and protest in Hip Hop, the abrasive attitude can quickly scour away at the sentiment and message in the music, but there’s no danger of that with No Magic. It’s pure soul, a vibration you’re going to want to indulge in time and time again.

It comes as no surprise that Catfish is quickly rising up from the underground with their magnetically mindful lyrics, melodically relentless flows and accordantly transfixing beats. Get him on your radar.

Canadian trailblazer SVLM offers a high-vibe Hip Hop playlist staple with ‘Six Speed’

SVLM has already taken the Canadian Hip Hop scene by storm, after the release of their latest track, Six Speed, he’s about to tempestuously dominate international airwaves.

The high-vibe grooves paired with their charismatically-energetic personality made an earworm out of Six Speed, which is anything but mechanical despite the romantically meta automotive focus of the track.

Their ability to infuse their endearing personality in the music video made it impossible not to warm to SVLM. Their commercial potential is undeniable. Don’t just watch this space, get behind one of the most eccentrically magnetic artists dropping tracks in 2020.

You can check out the cinematic official music video which dropped on October 30th for yourselves by heading over to YouTube.
