TODDIE – Be Mine: A Romantic R&B-Infused Trap Ballad

Up and coming R&B Soul Trap artist TODDIE kicked off their latest track with an experimentally teasing prelude which doesn’t immediately reveal the sticky sweet soulful appeal of “Be Mine”. But when the chorus is in full flow, you’ll definitely get to appreciate TODDIE’s smooth vocals through the crooning Hip Hop bars which have been paired with vibrant, energetic and colourful beats.

Perhaps one of the most striking parts of TODDIE’s prodigally mastered single is the lyrics. It’s incredibly rare to hear such candid lyrics in an R&B track, usually, you’ll just get the same old tired sentiment, yet TODDIE versed through palpable passion making Be Mine feel incredibly authentic, and kudos have to go to producer Trapsolo for giving the track a seamless radio-ready feel.

Lucas Marina – DrinkFromMeAndLiveForever: Melodiously Mesmeric Trap

“DrinkFromMeAndLiveForever” is just one of the moodily mesmeric Trap hits found on up and coming artist Lucas Marina’s latest 2019 album “Consumed”. It may only be a short and sweet drop, but in the space of just over two-minutes Lucas Marina’s stylistic approach to the genre will leave you in a state of arrestive catharsis.

Each of the singles explores a new concept in a uniquely beguiling soundscape, but with DrinkFromMeAndLiveForever you’ll get to appreciate the layers of reverb which give the mellifluously melodic EDM Hip Hop single all too easy to sink into.

With smooth R&B style vocals which flow in synergy with the uncomplicated, yet effective beats all wrapped up in a polished production, it’s easy to see why we aren’t the only ones getting excited about this release.

Lee Laamaj releases their latest Tap mix “WAVELINES”

“WAVELINES” is the fresh new Trap mix from up and coming Hip Hop Rap artist Lee Laamaj which invites you to ride the waves of infectious playful rhythms. The track follows on from the success Lee Laamaj’s 2019 album “Don’t Sleep on Me”, treating listeners who became fond of the endearing hits to a brand-new flavour of energised aural eccentricity.

WAVELINES really isn’t a track which takes itself all too seriously, instead, the LA-based Rapper and Producer allows the mix to resonate as a high vibe serving of expressive charisma which won’t fail to leave you hooked into the high tempo beats.

It may only be a short and sweet hit with a duration of 1:15 minutes, yet, that’s all the time it took for Lee Laamaj to stamp down their authoritative, distinctive style of Hip Hop with WAVELINES.

Up and Coming Artist Logan shows us the future of Future Pop with the single “All Right”

“Color in the Line” is the first full-length release by up and coming Future Pop artist Logan which sits right on the contemporary curve by offering charisma, ambience, and poignantly expressive lyricism.

It’s fairly rare to find lyrical narratives from a new artist so transfixing from the first hit of their sound. Yet, it’s easy to see that Logan has an incredibly natural ability when it comes to placing harmony next to his momentous melodies which are always finding new ways to immerse you even deeper within the soundscapes.

Undoubtedly the best introduction to Logan’s sound is the standout single “All Right”, which runs through with an extended duration allowing the rhythm to gently build throughout the subtle progressions of the acoustic instrumentals alongside the electronic effects.

Lil Mercer – Rocketship: Intergalactically Ambient Dreamwave Trap

“Rocketship” is the ambient new mix from up and coming R&B Trap artist Lil Mercer who has a distinctively melodically lax approach to his soundscapes.

While the track felt as though it was a little slow to start, once you’re comfortably aligned with the slow rhythmic tempo of Rocketship, it’s hard not appreciate the single for what it is; a smooth mix of Dreamwave Trap which won’t fail to draw you into the perfectly polished transient grip of the single.

Even though there’s plenty of lyrical repetition in Rocketship and the lyrics are largely indecipherable, they serve a different purpose by adding to the melody in an offbeat rhythm which adds a new layer of complexity to the single.

You can check out Lil Mercer’s latest single Rocketship which was released on June 26th for yourselves by heading over to YouTube now.

Add some fire to your playlists with Lil Legin’s latest Trap mix “Who Am I”

Up and coming R&B Trap artist Lil Legin dropped their latest track “Who Am I” on June 30th offering a fresh polished production which plenty of people have already shared in the hype of. Which should come as no surprise considering how incredibly accessible the hit is, the accessibility may come with the compromise of authenticity in Who Am I, but for anyone who appreciates the New Wave of Trap the single comes highly recommended. Lil Legin has a discernible amount of talent, which is evident through the easy flow and rhythmic grind behind Who Am I, yet there is little in the single which sets them apart from the myriad of other artists trying to make an impression.

King Phill releases their latest feverishly fresh Trap single “Been”

If CashMoneyAP has had anything to do with the production on a Hip Hop track, that’s an instant sign it’s going to slam. Up and coming Rap artist King Phill’s latest single “Been” which dropped on June 18th certainly isn’t an exception to the rule.

The rapid lyrical versing never allows you to tune out of the pure momentum and rhythm which Been was created with. It may be a little hard to keep up with the lyrics from the first time of playing the track, but that just gives you all the more reason to hit play on Been time and time again and appreciate King Phill’s flawless grind. The light Trap beats infuse plenty of delicate textures into Been, allowing King Phill’s vocals to dominate the fresh track which stands as a testament to his irrefutable talent.

3FK feeds plenty of vocal harmony into his latest Trap mix “Chasing Dreams”

“Chasing Dreams” is the authentically arrestive Trap mix from up and coming Hip Hop artist 3FK. There is absolutely nothing archetypal about the track, with 3FK’s smooth and indulgent Pop-style of vocals it’s all too easy to get caught up in the narrative of the single.

It’s a rare feat to find such a level of vocal harmony in a Trap track – but once you’ve heard it, you may be left with the compulsion to eradicate the excessively produced Trap vocals off your playlists. Then, there’s the deftly intricate beat which sees plenty of progression throughout the track, yet, it always retains its mesmeric moody capacity. The future of Trap is definitely safe in the hands of 3FK.

Ceylon – I.R.B.: Emotively Rendered, Ethereally Composed Melodic R&B Trap

“I.R.B.” is the debut single from breaking recording artist Ceylon who orchestrates his atmospheric soundscapes through finding the perfect balance between elements of Trap, R&B, and downtempo Pop. With the motivation behind Ceylon’s sound being to create melodies which explores the psyche of a 21st-century human, it’s easy to feel that your soul is suitably exposed as you listen to the tentative ambient progressions.

The South London-based artist has a perceptibly deft ability to pour emotivity into his soundscapes. The Trap beats are accompanied by ethereally haunting layers of reverb, constructing the perfect platform for Ceylon to lay down his candid and compelling lyricism. What I loved the most about I.R.B. was the fact that Ceylon didn’t use flowery metaphors to verse the lyrics, and the delivery was just as raw as the explicit lyrics themselves.

Jdotds releases their latest R&B Trap single Raindrops

Following on from the release of his debut EP “ICY” Jdotds has released their latest single “Raindrops” which sits right on the contemporary R&B Trap curve.

The up and coming artist infused the smooth rhythms of R&B and irrefutably made them his own by mixing in vibrantly intricate trap beats which carry plenty of bass. There’s the perfect pinch of reverb on Jdotds’ magnetically smooth vocals allowing them to sit in perfect synergy with the light and deft instrumentals which make Jdotds latest single impossibly easy to listen to. The quality of the production combined with Jdotds charismatic R&B style of vocals allows for Raindrops to resonate as an endearingly masterful single.
