Lavi$h teamed up with LL$ and Oladiupo Ogunmola to create their hazily trippy Indie Hip Hop debut single “Melodies”

For their debut single “Melodies”, breaking Rap artist Lavi$h teamed up with LL$ & Oladiupo Ogunmola to create a freshly dynamic accessible Hip Hop hit. The tones are intoxicating, and the vibe couldn’t be sweeter.

The melodically trippy feat of downtempo Hip Hop practically demands a spot on your vibe out playlists from the first listen. The polished yet hazy production is all too easy to sink into while the vocals ensure that you’re treated to a track which boasts a smorgasbord of progressive immersive appeal.

There’s plenty of soul projected in the mix, but that didn’t mean that Lavi$h had to hold back on the amount of attitude poured into the slick contemporary drop.

D.Carr The Fly Guy has dropped the slickest Hip Hop track of the year with their single “Puddle”

Hip Hop doesn’t come much slicker than breaking Rap artist D.Carr The Fly Guy’s recently released, flawlessly produced single “Puddle”.

Puddle was created with equal parts attitude, grit and instrumental ingenuity. The contrast between the light and delicate notes and D.Carr The Fly Guy’s salaciously convictive Rap bars ensured that you’ve never hit play on a Hip Hop track quite like this before.

D.Carr The Fly Guy is definitely one to watch. It’s not every day you come across a Hip Hop artist offering striking authenticity in their sound, and it’s even rarer to find an artist with such a magnetic vibe. Get him on your radar.

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.
