New Wave Trap artist Blackmajic dropped their latest single Go (Superstar Figure) featuring Almighty Bhiz, Jaylaflame and Reg Mason on July 24th. If any Trap track deserves to go viral this summer, it is this one.
The bass-driven mix packs a high-octane punch, but you’ll still be able to lock into the rhythmic grind which is offered by Blackmajic’s flawlessly metered Rap bars. Paired with sharp melodic hooks, there’s little chance that you’ll hit play on Go without being fully immersed by the solid, fresh and alchemic rhythms.
It’s one of those rare tracks you hit play on and can’t sit still while listening to it. Hip Hop tracks with that kind of arrestive power are worth their weight in gold. Naturally, Blackmajic is well worth putting on your radar.
Blackmajic’s latest single Go is available to stream via all major platforms through this link.

Breaking Alt Hip Hop artist Mehki Raine infused plenty of Punk attitude into their latest release “Riot”. The experimental release was written way before the riots and protests and it may leave you with the suspicion that Mehki Raine uses a crystal ball for his lyrical inspiration.

Riot which was produced by Fish kicks off with a nostalgic Jazz-laden intro before seamlessly sliding into a bass-driven feat of adrenalizing EDM Hip Hop. Any fans of Saul Williams definitely won’t want to hang around hitting play on Riot. If you weren’t already in the mood to crush the oppressive structures which hold together our fragile society, you will be once Riot hits its monumental peak.

100 Calls may be tonally light, but the stark, poignant and all too relatable regret which was projected into the mix hits hard.

VONTAZE BURFICT is just one of the tracks which you’ll find on their 2020 release CODIRK-19, while each track is as indulgent as the last, VONTAZE BURFICT is a mould-breaking feat of Trap which is all too easy to connect with.

Pop singer-songwriter Olivia Rees has recently released her phenomenal Alt Pop hit Darker Night. Expect to be hit with full-frontal emotion, viscerally compelling lyrics and hypnotically atmospheric electronic instrumentals.
It’s strikingly meta lines such as “I lost myself when I looked for you” which puts Olivia Rees’ striking style leagues apart from any other up and coming Pop artist in 2020. With a nuanced infusion of Hip Hop in the rhythmically arrestive beats and plenty of bite behind her vocals, Darker Night is as distinctive as it is captivating.
It’s tangibly clear that Olivia Rees never set out to assimilate with this passion-soaked hit. It oozes with authentic creative ingenuity.

Breaking Hip Hop artist Young Rooney has followed-up from the success of their debut single with their second atmospherically ensnaring single “Left Hand”. After a tension-building prelude, Let Hand unravels as a transfixing feat of contemporary Trap.
The gripping mix may pull in an element or two from the Old School-style, but Young Rooney perceptibly made the gripping sound in Left Hand his own. He found the perfect balance of ominous vibes and hard-hitting reality reflecting lyrics in Left Hand. It may be dark, but it’s anything but gritty, the polished production carries an almost hypnotic tendency. We definitely don’t get to say that every day.

Atlanta, Georgia-based Rap artist Sosbrand.On left us hooked on their humility-soaked raw and honest sound with their 2020 album “21”. While each track stands a testament to the artist’s lyrical ingenuity, Slide is the best introduction to their audaciously brazen approach to Hip Hop.
It’s not every day that you’ll get to hear such wit and sniping execution in Rap bars. Sosbrand.On may have a playful approach to his tracks, but that definitely doesn’t mean that he doesn’t have plenty to say. His clear cut introspection tears through contemporary culture with razor-sharp precision.
The beats and production match the playful tone of the track. The solid instrumentals have been left frill-free yet infectiously melodic which amplifies the earworm potential of the track which you’ll want to give repeat attention to every time you need an urban aural pick me up.
