Incorporating talent from across the globe, check out our five Tracks of the Week taken from our meticulously-curated ‘BRAND NEW’ playlist showcasing some of the most exciting up-and-coming talents around.
1. BXKS – ‘Must Feel’
BXKS is one of the most exciting underground prospects in UK rap at the moment. Taken from her recent debut project ‘Full Time Daydreamer’, the synth-driven cut ‘Must Feel’ develops the Luton-hailing lyricist’s exciting brand of alternative grime and shows exactly why she’s here to stay.
2. Xavier LaCroix – ‘tell me’
Carefully blending aspects of lo-fi, R&B and bedroom pop to get convey his poignant messages, Xavier LaCroix’s latest EP ‘boytoy’ is all about his DIY ethos. Created in his home studio, opening track ‘tell me’ is an effortlessly smooth introduction to the Edinburgh-based artist’s sound which sees him float over a hazy beat with his hooky melodies.
3. Lazuli – ‘Zero’
Whether it’s rapping in French or laying down vibrant melodies in Spanish, rising talent Lazuli is one to watch this summer. ‘Zero’ is taken from her debut EP and mixes elements of her Chilean heritage with flavours of Reggaeton, funk and hip-hop to land at the intoxicating sound.
4. POiSON ANNA – ‘FAiNT’
A previous collaborator of Dean Blunt and A$AP Rocky, POiSON ANNA is a fascinating underground prospect. Her recent track ‘FAiNT’ is a testament to the London-based artist’s otherworldly sound and blends dub basslines with claustrophobic percussion to create an immersive dystopian atmosphere.
5. Cyclonz – ‘Horrible History’
Flexing his exuberant flows and wordplay over a thumping beat on latest cut ‘Horrible History’, South London rapper Cyclonz has delivered a summer-ready heater you don’t want to miss.
