Tanaka Makoni Shares ‘Lust’

Tanaka Makoni

Tanaka Makoni is a new name to me. I was not aware of her talent until I recently received her new track ‘Lust’. By heck does this track shine. It has an underground hip hop feel but yet has plenty of contemporary flavours poking out too. Chill and relaxed is the approach which Tanaka has gone with here on ‘Lust’. So much so, it is hard not to feel the tranquillity flowing through the veins from the moment it kicks off. A gentle tapping beat opens with a synth lead…

It has a party vibe going on, and it is the type of record which will get you bopping along instantly. Positivity is flowing through The Hassan Assassins veins here, and it conveys his feel-good emotion to the world. It is refreshing to hear a track which is not groaning about the world, and this one is taking a positive approach. Kicking off is…

Complex Releases ‘Where We Came From’

Complex

It is always refreshing to hear a track which brings a nostalgic feel. The new record from Complex does precisely that. It does what it says on the tin, and it takes us right back to where we came from. Singing with passion from the get-go, Chris Peevor (Complex) puts his ability firmly on the shelf for all to witness. He proves how well he can transition between the spoken word and also original singing. It is something which many rappers like Complex, wish to possess and sometimes it can…

Yulanda Sabrina Mesmerises With ‘Easier’

Yulanda Sabrina

R&B sensation Yulanda Sabrina is bringing lockdown optimism with her new track ‘Easier’. The singer who resides in London is proving how much quality she posses, and it is quite hard to believe that this is her debut. She boasts confidence from the get-go. From her opening vocal, we hear the artist delve into a realm which not many go. Her sound is reminiscent of the greats, but yet it is so far in her corner it shouts distinction. I first received this track, the day of release, and I…

Mustie Is All Chill With ‘Fantasma’

Mustie

I love to review chill tracks. It kind of goes without saying, but it puts me at ease. That is the feeling I have when writing about ‘Fantasma’ from Mustie. The artist is still relatively underground. But he is on the right path to the VIP tent. Overall, I like this release. I am not one to always get on the wavelength of northern electronic artists, but I do here. He has taken a leaf out of the books of many of the greats. But, yet come up with something…

UK Grime Newbie JOSHUi Drops ‘Ends’

JOSHUi

I relish new hip hop. It keeps me ticking. Luckily, I received the latest track from ‘JOSHUi’, and I have been itching to put my words to pen since it landed in my inbox. A record which fulfils any hip hop enthusiastic wishes. It comes full of surprises. Let’s kick off with the prelude. It starts with a siren effect reminiscent of a police chase before then transitioning into a synth-based melody. Not short of any charisma, the rapper then delivers a substantial rap performance. After the intro, we then…

IAMHaile Increases Dopamine Levels With ‘Thank you’

IAMHaile

IAMHaile is no stranger to dropping a solid hip hop track. He is building quite a reputation for doing just that. It was only a few months ago when I first found the rapper who lives in North Carolina. It was actually through checking out artists on Instagram where I first came across him, and it turns out he is quite a big deal. Especially within the religious hip hop community. But, I do not think his music is stereotypically religious. It does have elements and phrases which reflect the…

B.U.d Goes Old School With ‘No More’

B.U.d

LA-based musician B.U.d has just released his new track ‘No More’. It is a release which puts the singer’s octave range on full display with a pleasant vocal from the get-go. It gets started with an old school R’n’B beat, and it took me back to yesteryear with an immense sense of nostalgia. Yes, the industry sound has changed, but why change something which worked very well? I think B.U.d has taken influences from the past here but created something unique and memorable in its own right. ‘No More’ is…

Zonj3 Releases Smashing New Track ‘Extra’

Zonj3

Zonj3 is never shy when it comes to dropping a hit. In fact, he has quite a track record when it comes to delivering the goods. His new track ‘Extra’ is in my opinion UK hip hop at its finest. However, it does not stick to the status quo with a sound as distinctive as his name. Furthermore, the track starts with a guitar lead, which to be honest I was not expecting. Nevertheless, it is not long until we get back to Zonj3’s signature sound with a well performed…
