1. Christian Blue – ‘LuvDrunk’
Christian Blue’s unorthodox blend of pop, hip-hop and funk is quickly setting him apart from the rest. Combining maximalist hyperpop production with his head-turning vocal style, the Los Angeles-based rapper has landed on something special with his new track ‘LuvDrunk’.
2. AP The Plan – ‘Atlanta’
On experimental hip-hop cut ‘Atlanta’, Philadelphia duo AP The Plan raise their game to new levels. Going back-to-back over the cosmic production, the pair’s styles combine to create a genre-bending sound; It’s a standout track from their recent ‘Patterns’ EP.
3. Countess Malaise – ‘Bleller’
An elusive figure in the underground Icelandic rap scene, new material from Countess Malaise is often few and far between. After kicking off 2021 with the high-octane single ‘Exciting’, her follow up ‘Bleller’ is a bouncy number showcasing the rapper’s left-field style in all its glory.
4. Nami Sato – ‘Blue Drizzling – Edit’
Japan’s Nami Sato has spent the last years carving out her own space in the ambient scene with otherworldly soundscapes. The second part of a double single; ‘Blue Drizzling – Edit’ is a spacey and aquatic cut which builds on the sound of the original with Sato’s atmospheric production.
5. Michael Paradise – ‘Lately’
Composed and recorded during lockdown, ‘Lately’ is the first track of the year from Toronto’s Michael Paradise. Stripping back his indie sound to its core essence, the artist reveals a more intimate side to himself as his voice simmers over wandering piano notes.
