Miles Casper – Hit the Spot: Entrancingly Fresh RnB Trap Pop

Miles Casper has followed on from the success of their first two singles with the equally as melodically smooth Pop Trap track “Hit the Spot”. You can’t help but feel and move to the rhythmic grind in Hit the Spot. It’s not all too often we can dub Pop Trap entrancing but Hit the Spot does exactly what it says on the tin.

By switching between harmonic Pop vocals and perfectly metered rapid-fire Rap bars, Miles Casper created a dynamic hit which you’re immediately hooked into from the prelude right up to the outro.  There’s also a lot to be said for the seamless fluidity of the lush instrumentals. Not to mention the radio-ready finish which they were able to achieve on the production.

The 19-year-old Melbourne-based artist and producer plans to drop a single each month in 2020. If any Alt Pop is worth having on your radar this year, it is Miles Casper.

Indigo Blue has released their latest genre-defying feat of Alt Pop with “Shape Me”

Alt Pop artist Indigo Blue has proven with their latest single “Shape Me.” that Pop can be just as progressive as Rock and Metal.

Their standout single will aurally crawl under your ribs from the minute you press play. Within it, you’ll find subtle elements of RnB, Hip Hop and Rock all sat alongside Indigo Blue’s eccentric soulful daringness to sound completely distinctive.

There’s so much personability to be found in the vocals that you’d have to be without a soul not to feel the weight of the deftly penned lyrics which inject just as much atmosphere into the single as the pensive keys.

Their bold songwriting approach definitely paid off if the hype around their tracks is anything to go by.

Cudlino – Only You ft. GlitCH: Meltingly Smooth RnB Hip Hop

Cudlino may not have broken the mainstream yet. But make no mistake, their RnB-soaked style of Hip Hop is as radio-ready and commercially appealing as it comes.

The smoothly rhythmic feat of Hip Hop offers absorbing melodies carved by effervescent guitar notes and the structure of the track was crafted by flawless EDM beats. Going by their earlier releases, they perceptibly have no problem vocally holding their own. But bringing in GlitCH rounded the track off perfectly. There’s a potent amount of chemistry within this immersive fresh track.

It’s modern, it’s meltingly romantic, and it’s a good indicator that Cudlino won’t be up and coming for long if he keeps on cooking up sticky-sweet urban works of alchemy such as Only You.

MC Kean Has Released Their Latest Wavy Urban Hit “A New Day”

If you appreciate transcendental vibes in your Hip Hop, look no further than up and coming artist MC Kean’s latest drop “A New Day”.

While the electronic instrumentals offer a lucid catharsis, MC Kean lays down clean convictive and resounding Rap bars. It may be a lyrically heavy track, but each bar offers easy and ingestible inspiration. Bringing in the female Pop vocalist who offers reminiscences of Rihanna rounded the track off perfectly.

There isn’t a shadow of a doubt that MC Kean has what it takes to break the mainstream with their wholesome restorative approach to Hip Hop. We certainly won’t be forgetting about it in a hurry.
