https://open.spotify.com/album/52obbYdJdr5Up9wueDDBku

Belgian-born, UK-based Hip Hop artist Medy Lema’s latest single “Say to Me” will have you sharing in the same exuberant energy it was produced with before the first verse has run through.

It’s sexy, it’s vibrant, it’s playful, more importantly, it does exactly what good high-vibe Hip Hop is supposed to, it pulls you away from reality and smothers you in good-vibes. Whatever mood you’re in when you hit play on Say to Me, I can guarantee it will be made better by the unparalleled level of ingenuity and soul. The multicultural rhythmically fire drop incorporates Afro beats around elements of Funk, Disco, House and Hip Hop to serve up pure urban aural alchemy.

CMILL444 has moved the Hip Hop narrative away from glorified hedonism with “Drugs R Overrated!”

CMILL444 dropped their latest single “Drugs R Overrated!” on August 6th and perceptibly achieved their mission of moving the narrative in Hip Hop away from the glamorisation from drugs, sex and excess by pouring some feel-good grooves on the airwaves.

As Scroobius Pip once said “Guns, bitches and bling were never part of the four elements, and they never will be. CMILL444’s sweetly resolving single reaffirms that sentiment. We all know that happiness doesn’t come from anything with a price tag, it’s about time that Hip Hop reflected that fact.

The Indie Trap Pop hit doesn’t just leave you enamoured with the vibrant and accordantly light beats, but with life itself.

Jase Emeka has dropped their trippy and playful high-vibe Hip Hop single “The Dream”

UK-based experimental Hip Hop artist Jase Emeka has dropped their most playfully inventive single yet with “The Dream”. It can be hard to find authenticity amongst up and coming artists, but you’d be hard-pressed to find an artist offering as much soulful charisma as Jase.

The Dream kicks off with an extended trippy and hazy instrumental prelude before Jase comes in with his humility-soaked spoken word vocals. Of all the Hip Hop intros I’ve heard as of late, none allowed me to feel as endeared as The Dream did.

When the slow tempo smooth Rap bars kick in, you’re hooked by the lyrical melodies which find perfect synergy with the light, warm and grooving beats. For my sanity’s sake, I’ll definitely be placing The Dream on my playlists and Jase on my radar. If dreamy melodic Hip Hop which oozes soul is your bag, I’d highly recommend that you do the same.

You can check out Jase Emeka’s single The Dream via Spotify.

Dre Bennett has dropped their perception-shifting, gratitude-invoking Hip hop track “Dynamic”

After the success of their debut single “Believe”, up and coming Hip Hop artist Dre Bennett stepped into the recording booth with yet another perception-shifting track with “Dynamic”.

Dynamic captures many different atrocities which we’re facing in 2020, but between the sobering illustrations of injustice are reminders not to take anything for granted. Systematic racial oppression and high unemployment rates are very real issues. But fighting them doesn’t mean you need to resign to hopelessness and despair.

It’s all too easy to fall into an existential hole these days. Fresh and resonant Hip Hop tracks like Dynamic are essential to have on the airwaves to remind you that optimism isn’t impossible, and apathy isn’t the only answer.

With lines like “Your perceptions are not my reality,” you’re forced to consider your personal perception of reality. Dre Bennett’s lyrical wisdom is worth its weight in gold.

You can check out Dynamic along with Dre Bennett’s other releases via Spotify and all other major streaming services via this link.
