For his latest track “Song Cry (Murder on My Mind)”, up and coming Alt Hip Hop artist RXCH teamed up with BIG HILLI, FAM and BIG HOOD THA KING YH to create a track which is as commanding as it is emotive.

Through a mix of contemporary RnB, New Wave Trap, and Hip Hop, RXCH was able to offer fiery energy alongside soul-deep sentiment. It’s definitely not every day we can say that.

While the vocal reverb felt slightly excessive in parts, Song Cry was still a solid track. It just felt slightly criminal to gloss over the emotion which was projected into the mix.

It’s easy to anticipate big things to come from RXCH, their sound isn’t just ahead of the curve, it’s created a brand-new trajectory in the evolution of RnB Hip Hop. I’d put them on your radar sooner rather than later.

You can check out RXCH’s latest single for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.

Adan Del Rio – Can’t Believe U featuring Netta: Sentiment-Soaked RnB Trap

For their latest single “Can’t Believe U” Alt Trap artist Adan Del Rio teamed up with RnB vocalist Netta to create an evocatively deep mix which is full of collaborative chemistry.

Despite the fast pace of Adan Del Rio’s bars, it was all too easy to drink in the passion-soaked poetic lyrics thanks to his clean, clear and convictive diction.

What a needle is to a haystack is usually what melodicism is to Trap music. But in Can’t Believe U, the light and cathartic guitar notes find the perfect balance in the mix against the 808s. It’s everything you could possibly ask for from a contemporary Rap track.
