Pa Salieu closed the 2021 Youth Music Awards
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. Kiddus – ‘Mashallah’
Rising talent Kiddus has developed a unique sound, splicing punk, soul, Afrobeat, pop and drill through a bizarre and disorienting lo-fi filter. On ‘Mashallah’, the Rastafari-raised artist flexes his eclectic style with an output that flows between smooth indie-pop and hip hop.
2. Cold – ‘Hardest Pit in the Litter’
Delivering his catchy and dizzying lyrics over the track’s immersive production, ‘Hardest Pit in the Litter’ sees Cold carve out his own lane. One of the two tracks from his recent release ‘Gone to the Dogs’, the short and sweet project shows what the emerging artist is all about.
3. vØHn – ‘Hollow Man’
Taken from his recent ‘Pareidolia’ EP, ‘Hollow Man’ is one of vØHn’s stand out tracks. Weaving his hooky melodies between abstract synths and itchy snares, the underground rapper proves his class.
4. Casper the Ghost – ‘Brown Eyed Girl’
Following her successful 2020 single ‘Text Me Twice’, Brighton-based singer/songwriter Casper the Ghost has marked her return with another banger. On ‘Brown Eyed Girl’, the vocalist navigates the atmospheric lo-fi production with her striking and ethereal melodies.
5. The Micronaut -‘Table Tennis’ (Otik Remix)
Merging two great musical minds, German multi-instrumentalist and producer The Micronaut invited London-based producer Otik to rework his track ‘Table Tennis’. Breathing new life into the single, Otik slowed the tempo of the original tune and added a dose of his dreamlike sound.
