Ricky Racks has dropped a Grime Trap playlist essential with their latest single “Trapstar”

“Trapstar” is the arrestingly slick latest single to be dropped by up and coming London-based Trap artist Ricky Racks. The beats may be modern and offer plenty of contemporary appeal. But the Rap verses and the lyrics bring back the most missed elements of Old School Hip Hop.

Ricky Racks’ verses practically drip venom and hold a stark mirror up to society in true Grime fashion. Combine that with the fact that it’s practically impossible not to get caught up in the smooth flow, and you’ve got a Trap hit.

With the playful and light beats creating the perfect contrasting platform for Ricky Racks to lay down their vitriolic verses, Trap tracks don’t come much more authentic than this. Get him on your radar.

You can check out the official music video to Trapstar for yourselves by heading over to YouTube now.

705 – Put It on Me: A Clash of Cultures

705 is the latest musical venture of a delectably talented underground London based World music artist. It’s almost impossible to deconstruct this track with it’s eclectic base of influences.

The sound behind Put It on Me is packed with pounding momentum as it transgresses through it’s range of styles, encapsulating you in it’s feverish beat which is loosely defined by the Hip Hop, Reggae & R&B genre, influenced by artists such as Tupac, 50 Cent and Michael Jackson amongst 70’s reggae artists to create a playful euphoric sound.

The enigmatic artist has kept on the London underground with his music where he shares his upbeat energy with the crowd curtesy of his afrobeat’s styling which defines his lyrical flow that complements a perfectly rounded beat that rings with synergetic momentum.
