Gemma Dunleavy on her “everyday chat dressed as sonics” and the community injustice that spurs her on
Sit back, press play and delve into our finely curated ‘Brand New’ playlist featuring a bunch of new and exciting acts – you’re guaranteed to come across a gem.
1. Bloodz Boi – ‘The Future I Wanted Was Gone’
Bloodz Boi is an underground Chinese rapper and vocalist who has been quickly amassing fans not only behind the Great Firewall – but also beyond it. From a handful of collaborations involving artists such as Organ Tapes, YNCC and Mixed Matches, the sheer sense of emotion his music conveys is of a rare-form. Much like Future, there’s raw emotion found in both the production’s melancholic melodies and in his delicate autotuned vocal style. This unique aspect of Bloodz Boi’s music successfully defies any language barrier.
2. Sandy Hsu – ‘Woman’
Sandy Hsu utilises strictly her voice in ‘Woman’, a slow-paced and meticulously layered track showcasing the Melbourne-based artist’s impressive choral background. This release marks the third and final single before she unveils her forthcoming EP ‘She Comes To Me In A Fever Dream’.
3. Joey G ii – ‘Project Jellybean’
Orphan co-founder Joey G ii drops an exquisite four-track EP via The Ambient Zone. From the artist’s top-tier level of musicianship and general artistic maturity, ‘Hood Canal’ compiles compositions that are not only captivating but seem viscerally driven by honesty and some form of introspective-ness. One of our favourite releases this month.
4. svrite – ‘Pulluponem’
Florida-based Puerto Rican-American rapper and producer Svrite shares ‘CRYBABY’, a pumping five-track EP showcasing the young artist’s distinct vocal style.
