More vibes from Little Simz!!! Taken from the forthcoming Age 101: Drop 4 Simz teams up with Toronto based producer Prezident Jeff and OZ to bring a cut that is slight more mellow and almost philosophical in its content but still that same quality. Right about now she is EVERYONE’S flavour of the week. Another reminder that some times being that talented does count for something in todays Music industry.
Nice classy good ol fashioned UK soul music and ain’t nothing wrong with that. Harlano keeps it real simple with the lead track from his new album “Harlano 2: Love-Soul-Music”. Built around a mean smooth baseline this tune is real nice. Pulling in Elisha laverne and Louise Golbey on guest vocals adds another layer to the track and puts the icing on the cake, although why he didn’t put a serious horn line on there I have no idea??? Great tune serious head bopper!
I know very little about this lady but this is lovely. Sylvia Mwenze graces the Reload Sessions cameras with this original and keeps it very simple showcasing her gorgeous voice with stripped down accompaniment. Nice tune nice vocal job well done.
Kudos to the Reload Sessions providing quality as always.
Captured at a recent I Luv Live someone who has been featured on this website quite a few times Olivia Louise performs an acoustic version of her track Skin Deep. Really enjoyed vibe all the guys on stage give. They give the tune a good work out and look like they are really enjoying which makes the performance all the better (especially my man on acoustic bass dope). As always Olivia’s laid back voice sounds subtly sweet and on point.
Props to the peeps at I Luv Live for providing the stage.
For the last month artists have been sending us their content for a chance to perform on The Unsigned stage at this years StreetFest. We have got it down to the best 12 acts who will perform in 2 heats to determine who gets a slot!
Each act will perform 2 songs each and our judges (previous Streetfest performers) will pick the best 2 acts on the night to perform at Streetfest
A simply stunning first video from JP Cooper. The concept is a tragic and sad take on the song. Its a superb performance from the lead actor who’s pain you can feel in every shot. The song itself is gorgeous but it really ends up being background music as the visual steals all your focus. Quality.
To see more there is a directors cut you can watch here.

James Massiah takes it to the streets of South London more specifically Streath-Narm aka Streatham. He talks about his experience as a younger growing up on those streets. To be fair its probably not an experience specific to just South London but i’m not sure if many streets have seen the same changes that Streath-Narm has. James brings the truth and his flow and lyrical content as always are on point and as someone who grew up on those same streets and ends I love this piece even more.
Been meaning to post this for a while now the latest video from Raleigh Ritchie as he continues to build the hype, anticipation for his forthcoming album. As always its more quality visuals from the man and his team as they come up with another innovative video that gives you more to think about than just look at. Does partying and dancing end up getting dull? Enjoy.
Oh gosh who actually does it better than Simz though. I mean really who??? I know Grime and MCs are having a moment right now but REALLY who comes harder than this??? Wether she is in the UK or repping the UK across the atlantic she still kills it and brings it better then every other British Lyricist. Here she is in Austin for SXSW on the BBC Introducing stage doing what she does best dropping straight FIRE!
Benjamin Bennett aka Mr Vocals and Verses drops a new Spoken Word piece built around the Andre 3000/Outkast classic “Prototype”. Much like the track it is a sensual, intimate and emotive piece built around one’s adoration of another. There are some lovely vocals here from Liz Lubega whilst Big J on production duties keeps it simple and lets the words take centre stage. Lovely piece.
