Jam : Ali has dropped their latest EDM Hip Hop hit “Focus”

High-octane Hip Hop fans won’t want to miss out on the momentous standout single “Focus” from up and coming artist Jam : Ali.

We don’t often get to hear artists who can match the quick-fire lyrical pace of artists such as Eminem, Busta Rhymes and Twista. But when Focus reaches peak momentum, it’s impossible not to feel a surge of awe transpire as you drink in Jam : Ali’s ability to wax lyrical.

The progressive track winds down the tempo between the frantic bars allowing you to soak up the resonant and charismatic sentiment behind Focus; it’s an adrenalizing hit which demands repeat attention. With the production being as pioneering as it was polished, Jam : Ali is undoubtedly one to watch.

MC! – HOW I REALLY FEEL: Infectiously Fresh Adrenalizing Hip Hop

US Alt Hip Hop artist MC! has dropped their most immersive track yet with “HOW I REALLY FEEL”. We don’t come across Rap earworms all too often, but with the not so subtle hooks and the adrenalizing vibe behind the mix, we’re sure you’ll find it as infectiously fresh as we did.

The volatile energy which feeds into the beats and the relentlessly paced Rap bars hook you in from the first verse. It comes as no surprise that HOW I REALLY FEEL is on the way to becoming a viral track after it was released in February 2020.

The grinding experimental EDM beats aren’t shy about bringing the bass. The stylistic instrumental storm may pull your mind away from the lyrics, but that’s all the more reason to give HOW I REALLY FEEL the repeat attention it deserves.

Cat Clark – Ghost: Authentically Atmospheric EDM Hip Hop

Since Cat Clark made her debut in 2017, she’s amassed an ardent following and plenty of hype around her sound. When you delve into her uniquely striking brand of Hip Hop, it’s easy to see why.

Cat Clark has recently released her ninth single “Ghost” which serves as the perfect introduction to her atmospherically moody take on Hip Hop which also borrows elements of Pop and Ambient Electronica. With a steady and effortlessly smooth Rap delivery combined with lyrics which unravel like spoken word poetry over intricately layered downtempo EDM Hip Hop beats, it’s hard not to get excited by Cat Clark’s potential.

In the overwhelming majority of HipHop tracks we hear, we hear replication and assimilation of former sounds. Yet, when it came to Cat Clark’s single Ghost, her evident lack of concern when it comes to genre constraints left us instantly enamoured.

DANNI VENDETTA – Nobody Around: Indulgently Nihilistic Trap

Earlier this month breaking Trap artist DANNI VENDETTA dropped a 30-second teaser of their upcoming single “Nobody Around”. Naturally, we’ve joined in on the hype around the hotly anticipated release which is due to drop soon.

The indulgently nihilistic tones in Nobody Around affirm that there are very few artists putting out such darkly experimental Trap on the airwaves. This definitely isn’t your average offering of dark or sad Trap. With the inventive use of the vocal reverb, DANNI VENDETTA ensured that his unfuckwithable lyrics were as ominous as possible and the beats were equally as abrasive.

You can check out the teaser from DANNI VENDETTA’s upcoming single Nobody Around for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud.

You can also get an impression of what’s to come checking out their previously released mixes. His latest single YUdodat didn’t get over 40k streams in under a month on SoundCloud alone for no reason.

K!T – Leaving My Image: Reflectively Smooth Trap

You’ll often find Trap tracks which are full of self-aggrandized pretence which offers very little resonance for Trap fans to ingest. Which is why up and coming Rap artist K!T’s latest candid humility-soaked track “Leaving My Image” is more than worth two minutes of your time.

The duration may be short, but with the immersive, intricate, and spacey beats, you’ll find it all too easy to lock into the smooth flow of Leaving My Image which unravels under a polished production. It may be on the more ambient side of EDM Hip Hop, yet, with the lyrical weight which the mix contains, it’s still undoubtedly a hard-hitter.

Kazuo – YABAI96: Darkly Caustic Alt Hip Hop

What Atari Teenage Riot is to EDM, up and coming Japanese Hip Hop artist Kazuo is to Hip Hop. Their latest track “YABAI69 which dropped in January is a juggernaut of an aural gem.

Explosive energy comes from both Kauzo’s high-octane adrenalized Rap delivery and the dark gritty beats which for the most part wouldn’t be out of place in a horror soundtrack. Hitting play on YABAI96 is a full-frontal experience which I’d recommend to any fans of Alt Hip Hop.

Of all the Hip Hop artists creating bitingly aggressive tracks, no artist quite does it with the same snaring conviction as Kazuo.

You can check out the official video to Kazuo’s latest single YABAI96 which premiered on January 27th via YouTube.

Loretta Mars – Levels: Fiercely Immersive Hip Hop

It was only a matter of time before up and coming Hip Hop artist Loretta Mars’ standout single “Levels” appeared on our radars. While not every Rap track will be able to lyrically grab your attention, Levels will get you by the scruff of the neck and ensure you follow the smooth but commanding flow right to the outro.

The lyrics in Levels were one thing, but the fierce and snappy electronic instrumentals make it all too easy to follow the pace of the arrestive track which stands as a testament to Loretta Mars’ expressive style.

Levels is packed with the personability and charisma which is rarely contained in Hip Hop. It’s going to be all too exciting to see what comes next from the Jackson, Mi-based artist.

K.G. Has Dropped Their Latest Fierce Hip Hop Party Anthem “Act Wit It”

“Act Wit It” is the fierce new Hip Hop drop from Breaking Rap artist and producer K.G which offers 5 minutes of pure grinding urban euphoria.

It’s easy to see why the Louisville-based artist has amassed over 25k streams on SoundCloud alone just two weeks after the release. It drips with viral potential and it would liven up any Party Hip Hop playlist.

With the depth of the bass and the animated energetic charisma which spills from K.G.’s energy-invoking salaciously playful Rap bars, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more dynamic contemporary Hip Hop hit.

Gud Cyrus – Princess Status: Groove-filled Sleekly Stylistic Hip Hop

Up and coming Hip Hop artist Gud Cyrus has recently dropped their eagerly anticipated EP “Version Update”. While each track is a high-fire sleekly stylistic mix, there’s no better introduction to their sound than “Princess Status”.

The amount of cathartic expressive venom found in the lyrics and Rap bars in Princess Status is only matched by how much ingenuity has been poured into the beats. As far as we’re concerned, Gud Cyrus is well ahead of the urban curve with their grooving beats finished with polished Pop-style production. Opting for such trippy tones to bring the lucidity into Princess Status was a bold move. But it definitely paid off.

Di$mal has dropped their mellow 420-friendly jam “Feeling High”

https://open.spotify.com/album/2kd2jNYtdF0xYJP3ZB90AN

“Feeling High” is the third single to be released by breaking Hip Hop artist Di$mal. The stoner vibes drip from the smooth and melodic release in a way which is sure to enamour any fans of Snoop Dogg.

Yet, rather than assimilating the 420-friendly urban jams which have been around for as long as Hip Hop has, Di$mal stamped down their own signature style with a nuanced infusion of Trap. The contemporary up-vibe beats offer hypnotic fluidity, Di$mal’s mellifluous Rap bars also bring plenty of mesmerism into the mix.

After listening to the soulful serenity in Feeling High, there’s little room to wonder why there’s so much hype around the Nottingham-based artist.
