King dat Sweet – Sweet Show: Polyphonic Playful Experimental Hip Hop

“Sweet Show” is the polyphonically playful latest drop from up and coming Hip Hop Rap artist King dat Sweet. The daring experimentalism of King dat Sweet’s approach to Hip Hop definitely paid off with Sweet Show, from the very first verse you’re locked into a sticky-sweet EDM Trap progression.

The smooth Rap bars have an easy flow thanks to the artist’s magnetically charismatic vocals, while the multi-layered mid-tempo futuristic beats offer an immersive amount of grind. King dat Sweet may be relatively fresh from their inception, but they’ve already proven that they have the pioneering ingenuity which the Hip Hop scene is crying out for. It’s going to be pretty exciting to see what they drop next – it wouldn’t be all too surprising to see one of King dat Sweet’s tracks going viral.

SAV released their latest wavily pensive Trap mix “Clones” ft. Hauzzy

Up and coming Trap artist SAV has recently dropped their latest single “Clones”. It may be a wavy, lucid, EDM beat-heavy mix, but the lyrics in Clones won’t fail to floor you – or sober you at the very least. With lines such as “we don’t get even, we get richer, you get broke”, Clones is a track which stands as a testament to SAV’s rarely heard (in Trap) ingenuity.

I’ll never be the biggest fan of heavy vocal reverb, but with Clones, there’s no denying that SAV has utilised it in an extremely efficacious way, allowing the reverb to amplify the morose soul which has been thrown into the mix.

Halo Thomas – Lazy Days: Hazy Hip Hop

If you’re looking for a soundtrack to your vibe-out sessions, look no further than the latest single “Lazy Days” from up and coming Hip Hop artist Halo Thomas.

The jazzy ambient trap mix offers plenty of rhythmic catharsis while Halo Thomas’ rap bars run like relatable spoken-word poetry. Thanks to the smooth concordance of the production on Lazy Days, it’s all too easy to slip into the soundscape and hook into the melody of the downtempo slow jam.

There’s plenty of music out there for introverts and people looking to bleed euphoria from Hip Hop, so it’s refreshing to hear an artist putting out beats for insomniacs and introverts. This introverted insomniac is exceptionally grateful for Halo Thomas’ contributions to the airwaves.

melrose makes their debut with the sonorously smooth Pop single “Love / Hate”

Up and coming Pop artist melrose has recently made their debut with the ambiently arrestive single “Love / Hate”. With the London-based artist’s captivating take on Pop, the single offers subtle elements of Trap, Soul, and downtempo Electronica, and with every progression of Love / Hate, you get a taste of melrose’s genre-contorting versatile style.

With the soulfully conflictive lyrics, you’re treated to raw and relatable introspection which won’t fail to resonant. The pensively orchestrated soundscape also plays a heavy hand in amplifying the intensity of the undiluted emotion which weaved its way into the melrose’s debut single.

Scotty Bee releases their eccentrically synthy hit of Lo-Fi Hip Hop with “I Got the Shoes”

Up and coming Texas-based Alt Hip Hop artist and producer Scotty Bee dropped their latest single “I Got the Shoes” on September 22nd sharing with the airwaves a futuristically synthy Trap-inspired beat.

With effects-laden vocals, Scotty Bee’s bars sit in perfect synergy with the analog synth beats which gently construct a lucid melody. It’s a spacey Lo-Fi mix which may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but no one can deny that Scotty Bee is an eccentric artist, it’s all but impossible not to fall enamoured by I Got the Shoes.

Noah Fabray – Insta Hoe: Salaciously Subversive EDM Trap Pop

“I Died Last Night” is the fourth EP released by the up and coming Pop Trap artist Noah Fabray. While each of the tracks contains a stark serving of playful charisma, “Insta Hoe” is an experimental EDM Trap earworm which you definitely won’t forget in a hurry.

Seeing the title, I was prepared for your archetypal serving of misogynistic lyricism. After I got a taste of Noah Fabray’s subversive lyrical style it was safe to unclench my jaw and appreciate the modern sultry mix unfold.

Hearing Noah Fabray lyrically objectifying himself was almost as enjoyable as listening to the ingeniously progressive beats creating the perfect platform for Noah Fabray’s demure harmonic vocals which hook you into the track from the first verse.

Kayzure Sakar – Grind: Atmospherically Dark Trap

“Grind” is the latest mix to be dropped by the up and coming Trap artist Kayzure Sakar. The atmospheric track utilises dark melodic beats, inventively immersive samples, and commandingly authoritative rap verses.

Kayzure Sakar may be an underground artist, but the smooth polish on Grind wouldn’t let you believe it. Grind stands as a testament to Kayzure Sakar’s ingenuity as an artist when it comes to creating inventive and original mixes. The only slight criticism I would have of the track is that the lyrics were slightly typical of what you would expect from a Hip Hop track, if Kayzure Sakar dropped candid raw emotion in their bars, they’d be unstoppable.

Emj – IN A MINUTE: Pensively Ambient, Melodiously Arrestive Trap

Emj has recently dropped their latest pensively ambient Trap mix “IN A MINUTE”, with candid lyrics which dig deep, and a masterfully melodious beat, appreciation of this smooth hit comes all too easily.

Emj has proved with his latest single that it is possible to spill raw emotion into a Trap mix without making any compromise to the concordance. IN A MINUTE offers plenty of melodic catharsis through the intricate Spanish fingerpicked guitar rhythms which sit in perfect synergy with the deftly timed soft smacks of the 808s.

The vocals also do their fair share when it comes to increasing how hard this downtempo track hits. Instead of hiding behind copious amounts of reverb, they run clean, and the poised pacing of the spoken word bars allows every line to resonate.

4FLO MUSIC – “BLINDED”: Soberingly Infectious Pop

 

UK-based singer-songwriter 4FLO MUSIC is due to release their most seminal single yet with “BLINDED” in October 2019. If you’re caught up in the political apathy (and you should be), you can consider BLINDED a playlist essential.

The track comes together as a blend of dark and moody Pop, Trap, R&B, and Alt Rock to create a suitably stark soundscape which compliments the sobering sentiment which has been put behind BLINDED. BLINDED perfectly alludes to the inequality and power balance in our society which only seems to be getting worse as we watch satire spring from our crushing disdain.

While there’s a generous serving of existentialism which spills from the lyrics, BLINDED still remains a captivating hit with plenty of originality, flair, and arrestive rhythm.

BLINDED is due for release on Oct 18th, and you’ll be able to catch it via Spotify.

Marlo London & Meech La Flare drop their high-fire Trap hit “D E S I G N E R”

Trap artists Marlo London & Meech La Flare teamed up in an urban collab which you definitely won’t want to miss out on if you’re always looking for the freshest beats which Hip Hop has to offer. “D E S I G N E R” is a rhythmically flawless hit which comes with a radio-ready polish, high energy, and a smooth flow.

There was plenty to appreciate about D E S I G N E R, but the fact that not all of the lyrics were fully legible slightly hindered the resonance of the track, as instead of getting lost in the rhythm and the vibe the majority of your focus falls into trying to make out the lyrics. But that’s not to say that the track doesn’t come with plenty of commercial potential and an undeniably solid beat.

You can check out the official music video to Marlo London & Meech La Flare’s latest single via YouTube.
