Marquis Noble Releases Their Latest Single “Who Knows” ft. Dr. Joe Dispenza

Marquis Noble’s latest Hip Hop track “Who Knows” kicks off with a reality-redefining monologue on the skewed concepts we hold in regard to our own personal realities. But there’s very little time to sink into a mind hole about the philosophy you’ve just ingested, as Marquis Noble immediately follows up with their own poignantly jarring introspection.

The melodic, dreamy, and transient mix makes it all too easy to drink in Marquis Noble’s poetically meta bars. Producer Bvtman pulled the track together to offer an ambient and trippy vibe which almost makes Who Knows a transcendental soundscape.

Hip Hop which resonates with such intellectualism will always be welcome on our radar.

BoogaTronic – Impossible: A Debut of Funk-Filled Trip Hop

“Impossible” is the debut single from up and coming UK artist BoogaTronic who has a perceptibly deft hand when it comes to putting together a lush bed of vibrant Funk-filled Trip Hop. Impossible may be a downtempo mix, yet, the visceral energy which runs through the melodic track relays nothing but good vibes. And they’re not the ‘good-vibes’ sound that gets rammed down your throat, instead, the subtle ecstasy in Impossible flows naturally. Sampling “the Impossible Dream” was an act of pure ingenuity, with those silky vocals slipping into the groove-tight arrangement, Impossible was never going to fall flat. The single was never created to fit neatly within any genre category, instead BoogaTronic used a myriad of different EDM elements to create a fresh new take on EDM Funk.

ANGELLIKEFIRE – DarkInTheWhole: Dark Electronic Trip Hop

Looking for some commandingly rhythmic electronica to add to your playlists? Look no further than the latest drop from ANGELLIKEFIRE. The up and coming artist’s latest single DarkInTheWhole is sure to enamour any fans of Lydia Lunch’s dark Avant Garde style.

While the mix may only be little over a minute long the fast-paced Electronic Trip Hop single still treats you to a soundscape you’re not likely to forget in a hurry.

With vocals just as resounding as her production style it’s easy to see how the pioneeringly indulgent artist will be making waves with her tracks which bleed stylistic chaos into the mix. As much as I loved DarkInTheWhole, I’d love to hear what ANGELLIKEFIRE could do with a full-length track.

Plastic Teardrops – Next Level: The Only Trip Hop Ballad You’ll Need on Your Playlists

“Next Level” is an upcoming single from the experimental artist Plastic Teardrops’ latest album “Close to the Ground”. Usually he is better known for his unique mixes of Trip Hop and Downtempo Acoustic, yet Next Level is a striking ballad featuring ethereally clear female vocals. As much as I adored the single, and as tolerant as I can be of the organic nature of Lo Fi sound, the single wasn’t the easiest to listen to at high volume. Yet, it’s tangible that the Barcelona-based artist and producer has a clear talent for aural expression with his Urban rhythms, contemporary composition style and subtle transitions between the single.

You’ll have to wait a little longer for the release of Next Level, but you can check out the singles from Plastic Teardrops’ album which have already been released via Bandcamp now.

Sattam – Don’t You Know: Cathartically Consuming Ambient Trip Hop

“Don’t You Know” is just one of the cathartically consuming singles from the up and coming Electronic artist Sattam’s latest album “Home”. Despite the tentatively transient mix falling into the ambient category, there’s still an overwhelming amount of energy and momentum poured into the viscerally textured beats.

The transcendental flow of the track progresses through subtle build ups, yet, the swells and drops create an alchemically immersive soundscape incorporating element of Trip Hop in the EDM mix, to provide that extra kick. The focus of the track is exactly where it needs to be; on the beat, yet the sporadic simple vocal samples add an almost haunted vibe to Don’t You Know adding to the mesmeric allure of Sattam’s standout style.

Nick Passion – brkn pcs: Emotively Charged Trip Hop

Brooklyn Hip Hop artist Nick Passion has just dropped an absolute bomb of Trip Hop anthem. If you’re looking for the perfect track to vibe out to, look no further than brkn pcs. His inventive approach to Hip Hop Rap will be more than enough to separate the up and coming artist from his contemporaries. His Rap bars are sweet and tentative, with his muted non-aggressive style he demands an infinite amount of respect. The lyricism is beyond genius, the meter and rhyme is just one of the elements which makes brkn pcs an interesting and refreshing addition to your playlists.

There are so many emotions caught up within the single from the up and coming artists latest 2018 EP ‘Incmplt; who doesn’t love a good play on words?  Each of the tracks on the EP stand as testament to Nick Passion’s elemental diversity and playful inclination when it comes to composing music. The entire EP was produced by Immrcy who left a touch of Lo Fi sound but threw in bucketloads of resonance to create one of the most emotive Hip Hop EP’s I’ve heard in a long time.

JasónTheSelfless – I Told You: Deep Down-Tempo Trip Hop

JasónTheSelfless is a rare type of Hip Hop Rap artist that steps to the mic to verse more than his own aggrandized introspection. Within his latest single which dropped in April 2018 there is an overwhelming amount of emotion, sentiment and passion which is palpable not only through the delivery of his Rap bars, but also in the beat. To set the perfect tone of melancholy the prelude runs through with a piano composition, preparing you to embrace a pensive soundscape which without any shadow of a doubt will move you, unless you’re dead inside of course.

Around the piano keys is the contemporary kick of 808 beats which lace the track with the perfect amount of attitude and momentum for JasónTheSelfless to follow with his lyrics. On top of that, the track is polished just enough to allow the deep vibes to shine whilst keeping their resonant texture. The Clermont, US based artist clearly has his style stamped down if I Told You is anything to go by, it’s more than a little exciting to see where he takes his sound next.

You can check out JasónTheSelfless’ latest single I Told You on SoundCloud now, if you’re a fan of down-tempo Trip Hop you’re going to be in absolute heaven.

Timi Tamminen – Generation Zero ft. HUMBLE: Trap Does Have A Soul After All

Generation Zero is the latest aurally alchemic offering from artist Timi Tamminien who seems to have made a soundscape which is almost impossible to define. To create the absolute genre mash of a track Timi teamed up with fellow infectiously talented Rap artist HUMBLE to create a track that may be difficult to in a box genre wise, but God damn its hot. The beat flirts with a Trip Hop sensibility, but the Pop style EDM beat kicks in when the up and coming artist kicks into full flow with his lyrical prowess. There’s a compelling, unmistakably romantic element which bleeds throughout the track which constantly switches up in momentum which makes listening to Generation Zero a fairly emotive experience.

You can check out the official video for Timi Tamminen’s latest track Generation Zero on YouTube now. You’d be hard pressed to find another artist coming close to what’s offer on this standout single which stands as testament to the emerging artists prodigal style. I’m ridiculously excited to hear what he cooks up next with his soulful beats.

Beetle not Beatle – Hightimes: Experimentally Blinding Trip Hop Synergy

Beetle not Beatle released his latest mix Hightimes on May 13th, 2018, to say it’s a Trip-Hop masterpiece would be quite the understatement. The emerging artist’s perceptible experimental style explodes through Hightimes which is brought to life by inventive sampling and the perfect levelling of every pitch, that allows the mixtape flow in synergy. Hightimes is almost an anthemically high-vibe mix that would be absolutely perfect to listen to whatever mood you’re currently revelling, the vocals and rap bars aren’t brash and, in your face, they fade in and out without aggrandized demand of attention, instead of being yet another rap lead track, the vocals add texture to the overall resounding sound.

You can check out Beetle not Beatle’s first ever single Hightimes on SoundCloud now, with tracks like that, the up and coming Hip Hop Rap artist is going to see a short ascension to the top of his game. As the track concludes, Beetle not Beatle throws in a playful ode to his self-produced lo fi style, which to be honest, I’ll favour any day over a plastically engineered assimilation of former sounds.
