Sonorous spoken words unravel in Untold Poet’s acoustic ambient single ‘Have You Heard It’

Untold Poet has joined Scroobius Pip in the ranks of Essex-hailing mind-blowing spoken word Hip Hop artists with the release of their latest single ‘Have You Heard It’.

In the acoustic version of their popular track, the meditatively Jazzy instrumentals trickle away, emitting ambience as the Untold Poet’s canter finds perfect synergy with the tentative keys which aurally paint a picture of still-life. There’s always the assumption that successful people don’t know adversity. It is all so easy to believe that everything comes easy to those who take roadblocks in their stride. As the Untold Poet consolingly points out, the key is resilience.

Any fans of George the Poet, Argh Kid, Kae Tempest and The King Blues will undoubtedly want to get acquainted with Untold Poet sooner rather than later.

Eleftherios’ finely tuned bars hit heights with ‘Roll With Me’

UK hip hop artist Eleftherios has released new track Roll With Me: a hard hitting lyrical rap number.

Echoing a cadence not too dissimilar to the likes of Scroobius Pip but with a notably midlands twang, Eleftherios delivers some nice bars in Roll With Me – but what really stands out is the delivery. A punchy, modern hip hop production helps elevate each syllable in standing out to attention and to all his credit, the lyrics have an inarguable elegance to them throughout.

Merging modern sounding UK hip hop and tinges of boom-bap with an authentic delivery and heaps of character, ‘Roll With Me’ is a strong effort from the British hip-hop artist and we’re looking forward to hearing more.
