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. ize – ‘Moves’
Emerging from the nocturnal city fog of the New York underground scene, ize’s neurotic marriage of grime-style production and dizzying experimental vocals has made him one to watch out for. On ‘Moves’, the rapper turns in an explosive barrage of deranged bars while the glitchy production adds to the track’s experimental nature.
2. Middle Part – ‘Busy’
Brooklyn-based artist Middle Part creates dreamy synth-laden pop tracks with a difference. Viscerally scattering his honest lyrics across velvet soundscapes, the rising musician’s new cut ‘Busy’ is an indie anthem packed to the brim with nostalgia.
3. Kiddus – ‘Slow’
Garnering comparisons to Frank Ocean and King Krule, Rastafarian-raised Kiddus smoothly blends spices of soul, indie, punk, Afrobeat and grime to land at his eclectic style. Bathed in minimalist production and addictive vocal flair, his new single ‘Slow’ is an amalgamation of lo-fi sonics and bedroom pop sensibilities.
4. MONEYPHONE – ‘Faith’
Hailing from Toronto, experimental duo MONEYPHONE intricately mine the edges of lo-fi, emo, hip-hop and everything in-between. ‘Faith’ encompasses the pair’s unique outlook on pop music, stretching the stylistic boundaries to a point where they can’t be easily compared. Crooning melodies simmer over sweet guitar progressions before crashing into tuneful distortion.
5. Flansie – ‘love + hate’
On ‘love + hate’, producer-rapper Flansie channels his forward-thinking creative vision to generate a mouth-watering cut. Offbeat experimental synths collide with dreamy melodic structures, resulting in a futuristic sound bathed in icy surrealism.
