Dai Lo – Side Boo: High-Vibe RnB Grind

Monogamy may be going out of trend, but Dai Lo has proven with their latest release that Trap-infused RnB Soul mixes never will.

The official music video to “Side Boo” dropped on November 16th offering a modern take on romanticism, and an even more contemporary take on the RnB genre. The polished EDM beats put plenty of hype behind the infectiously catchy track which comes with a heavy serving of viral potential.

The Toronto, Canada based artist teamed up with L.3.G.I.O.N for the production, ensuring that the melodies popped, and each pitch sat at the perfect level to allow Side Boo to unravel with plenty of high-vibe grind.

The first thing which hits you when you hit play on up and coming Miami-based artist Peaches305’s latest single “PEACHES-DRIPPIN” is her fearless lyrical approach. Her raw, unfiltered lyrics which are well and truly rooted in the real world don’t put up an invisible barrier between you and the artist. Instead, it’s all too easy to hook into the Rap bars and appreciate the resonant honesty.

Trap artists with salacious verses may not be the most obvious role models, but there is a confidence and energy contained within PEACHES-DRIPPIN which is enviable. The beats also helped Peaches305 to set herself apart with distinction. The smooth Jazzy Trap beats create the perfect platform for her clean and sultrily authoritative Rap bars.

VÉTRO – Heroina Love: Darkly Intellectual, Experimentally Captivating Hip Hop

Up and coming experimental Hip Hop artist VÉTRO has recently followed on from their debut single “Check Out Was at 11” with the darkly indulgent polyphonic aural delight “Heroina Love”.

Even though Heroina Love is a playful and artful soundscape, VÉTRO utilised their sardonic and intellectual wit to create a sobering track which addresses raw issues while simultaneously leaving you feeling uniquely uplifted.

Post Punk and Hip Hop have never been so intrinsically combined. If you could imagine what Bauhaus would sound like if they ventured into Trap, you’d get a good idea of the unique alchemy which VÉTRO has cooked up with Heroina Love. The duration may be on the shorter side, but within two minutes, there comes an affirmation that this level of nuanced ingenuity in Hip Hop is rarely seen. Especially from a breaking artist. If you appreciate Hip Hop pioneers, you’ll be as hooked on VÉTRO’s sound as we are.

Alt Rock Meets Trap in BLVCK ZEDSU’s Latest Single “Insomnia”

https://soundcloud.com/zaire-nashon-farmer/insomnia

If you were under the impression that sad Hip Hop couldn’t be fire, you may want to check out BLVCK ZEDSU’s recently dropped single “Insomnia”.

Mixing pensive alt-rock guitars with solid trap beats allowed Insomnia to become a universally accessible hit which easily hooks you in through the harrowed melodies. Unlike most Hip Hop which sits on the more melancholic side, Insomnia wasn’t a display of self-pity, it was raw, resonant, honest expression versed through witty bars.

While BLVCK ZEDSU can lyrically hold their own, they brought in Rap artist Cliiiford, to introduce more chemistry and yet another dynamic into the experimentally unforgettable mix which constantly evolves throughout the duration.

Bristol Based Trap Pop Artist TX Has Dropped Their Latest EP “Change”

“Change” is just one of the melodically magnetic singles featured on Bristol-based Trap Pop artist TX’s latest four-track EP of the same name. With the EP they’ve demonstrated that they have the lyrical wit and the infectious instrumental hooks to take the scene by storm.

Not only does TX set themselves apart through their intricate multi-layered seamless beats, but their intellectual lyrical style constantly finds new ways of keeping you in awe of their introspection.

With the lyrical depth of Scroobius Pip and the sticky-sweet reminiscences of Post Malone’s sound, TX is perceptibly an artist putting on your radar. Their polished and synergistic sound is one thing; their ability to create tracks which hit as emotively hard as they do is quite another.

Lil Litty has dropped their latest viral-worthy Trap mix “No Cap”

If you haven’t already got up and coming Trap artist Lil Litty on your radar, their latest fiery Trap mix “No Cap” is the perfect introduction to their energetically fresh take on the genre.

With clean rap bars which carried reminiscences to Busta Rhymes (not a comparison I make lightly), it was all too easy to sink into the succinct flow which No Cap offered. Instead of cooking up an archetypal Trap mix, in an experimentally bold move, Lil Litty played with darker tones, and it definitely paid off. The heavier notes sit in perfect contrast to Lil Litty’s charismatic high-vibe playfully authoritative vocals. If No Cap isn’t a viral-worthy Trap hit then I’m not quite sure what is.

Overeasy – No Clones ft. Sonny Sword: Soul-Soaked Pop Trap

“No Clones” is the latest Funky Trap-infused Pop hit from up and coming Philadelphia-based artist Overeasy. If you’re always on the lookout for fresh new blends of Trap and Pop, you’re going to be as enamoured as we were by their latest release.

For this track, they teamed up with vocalist Sonny Sword who mixed who made each new verse feel as fresh as the last. It’s not all too often you get to hear Trap Pop and soul sit and in hand, but Overeasy cooked up a tonally warm and melodiously vibrant mix with No Clones. Their authenticity is making Trap more accessible than ever. The vibe in No Clones is irresistibly magnetic, and the slow and easy tempo of the track makes No Clones the perfect addition to your vibe-out playlists.

George Flyer – Paranoia: A Deeply Narrative Trap Lullaby

George Flyer

After a six month stint between releases, Trap artist George Flyer is ready to drop their most immersive track yet. “Paranoia” perfectly captures the anxiety seems to be becoming increasingly more prevalent in our society as we all struggle to find meaning in an order-less world.

The track follows the narrative of a man directionless and only informed by their problems while trying to live in spite of their pain. Plenty of us would be lying if we said that’s an emotion which we’ve never experienced. George Flyer’s vocals are impossibly easy to listen to, there’s a vulnerability to their verses instead of abrasive aggression which makes it all too easy to make a connection to their lyrics.

If anyone can restore the reputation of Trap as an aggressive genre, it’s George Flyer. The Alt Trap track weaves in endearingly melodic elements of Folk to give Paranoia a playful friendly tonality which has plenty in common with the orchestral electronic folk created by Cosmo Sheldrake.

You’ll have to wait a little longer before you can check out Paranoia for yourselves. In the meantime, head on over to SoundCloud to listen to their earlier releases.

SirRil – Why ft. MpdTheGod: Darkly Atmospheric Trap

Alt Hip Hop fans are sure to appreciate the magnetic appeal contained in up and coming Rap artist SirRil’s latest single “Why” ft MpdTheGod. It’s moody, dark, it’s inventively structured, and it contains plenty of plaintive soul.

Instead of offering an archetypal feat of melancholic Trap, SirRil has cooked up a downtempo progressive mix which carries reminiscences to artists such as Saul Williams. But despite the experimentalism with the beats, Why is still an impossibly easy track to slip into. Once the beat hooks you in, you’ll have little choice over whether the candid, frustrative and questioning lyrics resonate. The production on the single may be slightly low, but there’s still an incredible atmosphere put behind Why.

You can check out SirRil’s latest single Why which dropped on October 24th by heading over to YouTube now.

B Walls Releases Their Latest Contemporary Trap Hit “Where I’m From”

New Wave Trap fans may want to prick up their ears for the latest release from up and coming Rap artist B Walls. Their latest single “Where I’m From” dropped in 2019 and provides a dark and commanding mix to vibe to.

B Walls was bold enough to lay down emotively candid lyrics which give a stark view into their experiences as an up and coming artist. But ultimately, the lyrics are a reminder that life is a journey and no one was born at the finish line.

The tone and style of the track is one which you will have heard countless times before. So, upon first hitting play it’s hard to hook into the rhythm or let the lyrics resonate without the elephant in the room which is the assimilative style. There’s no disputing that B Walls has the contemporary Rap style and talent to boot, but I’d really like to hear some true individualistic expression behind their tracks in the future.
