Floridian Rap artist BiggslimeMO has dropped one of the freshest new evolutions in Hip Hop we’ve heard so far this year. On the Way may just have the power to unite fans of the Old School with Trap kids.

Quay Rashad has dropped their rhythmically entrancing Dancehall single “My Baby” featuring AU Music

For their debut single “My Baby”, Quay Rashad borrowed the talent of AU Music and the influence of a myriad of different genres. Each stylistic genre-infusion into the Dancehall mix served to amp up the euphoria while keeping the tempo smooth and undemanding yet soulfully compelling.

If it’s been a while since a feat of Hip Hop made your jaw drop, hit play on up and coming Hip Hop artist Skvwalker’s single Time Again featuring Isnotcynical produced by Olivier Bassil & Brian Shiel.

Skvwalker promised to deliver ‘not your average Hip Hop beat’ with Time Again, he definitely didn’t disappoint. EDM, Pop and Hip Hop all converge in the high-vibe euphorically-produced mix which packs in some insanely unpredictable progressions.

Each element of Time Again is flawless, but it’s the rapid changes in the rap bars will leave your heart in your throat. It wasn’t just the beats which transfixingly built up, but the vocals too. If the bars ran any faster they would have been supersonic.

Naturally, we’re all too excited to hear the rest of Skvwalker’s LP Broke Music which is due to drop on August 1st.

Russian Rap artist Josie Valrhona has dropped her infectiously high-vibe empowering feat of Hip Hop “Josie”

Josie Valrhona is a rare kind of artist, she puts inspiring lyricism and infectious positive energy the essence of her tracks. She doesn’t invite her listeners to what she has to say, instead, she invites you to find herself in her music.

The Russian-born, US-based artist’s latest single “Josie” is the best introduction to her style. She lets you know just who is behind the high vibe soundscape you’re listening to.

When listening to her Rap bars you feel the fire, you can feel the empowerment which spills from her unapologetically sex-positive verses. Yet, despite the level of attitude, you can’t help but warm to the artist. That may have a lot to do with the warm exotic beats.
