If you haven’t listened to Raj Haldar before, now’s as good a time as ever to get on board. He’s been making music as Lushlife for the better part of 15 years; with the odd detour into (bestselling!) children’s literature, which in turn led to a TV development deal and (separately) an India-set TV series. …

After absolutely smashing her set last weekend in the Gobi tent at Coachella, poet/rapper extraordinaire Sampa The Great continues to collect more career milestones with the release of new track Lane featuring US rapper Denzel Curry. ‘Lane’ is the artist’s first single release via Loma Vista and her first offering since 2019’s ARIA Award and …

IN THESE days, months, or years even, when everything has been dominated by viruses, or at least one in particular, there have been many earnest releases focusing on the despair, isolation and loneliness that these have caused us all. There’s nothing wrong with that at all; after all art reflects life (or near enough anyway) …

CHEMISTRY students, listen up good. Here’s a new formula to examine. Take the wired, wild inventiveness of a Kool Keith; introduce it to the in-your-grill breaks innovation of MF DOOM; it’s gonna make a brilliantly unstable and fun isotope of leftfield hip-hop, right? Indeed it does. As you’ll see for yourself below with the dizzying, …

I’ve admittedly slept on Ohio experimental hip-hop artist Eugenius when his album, Midlife, dropped in late 2020. Which is criminal given my appreciation of Death Grips, the sorely missed MF Doom and Danny Brown’s Atrocity Exhibition. Midlife by Eugenius Originally released in October, Eugenius’ fifth album “combines elements of hip hop, industrial, pop, noise and …

Well, it’s been a bit of a year, hasn’t it? Global pandemics, George Floyd, environmental issues, terrorism, dissatisfaction with those in charge, not least in the ongoing (it seems) fallout from the American Presidential election. None of that has stopped artists from all persuasions and genres making some fantastic music over the last 12 months. …

It may be a rare disorder, but many artists across the globe are ‘synesthetes’, including Brooklyn based artist Jovian. An artist that merges sounds using all senses, Jovian is a unique musician. Released November 13th, the latest adventure from the hip-hop and R&B songwriter is the brooding number ‘Where’d U Go’. A visionary to say …

HIPHOP/R&B artist James Bailey, who hails from Los Angeles, has released a brand-new track, “Cinema”. Bailey wrote “Cinema” during a long-distance relationship in which he and his lover found themselves going through the motions, subsequently fantasising about his co-star/love interest in a rom-com style flick, that starts with dreams and sadly ends in heartbreak (spoiler …

Loyle Carner returns with his first single and video of 2020, ‘Yesterday’, out today via Republic Records. ‘Yesterday’ also features critically acclaimed producer, Madlib, providing the beats that sit under Loyle’s inimitable flow and uncompromising verses. Loyle comments: “It’s no secret Madlib is my musical hero. I wrote this almost 2 years ago, but at first had …

You don’t have to read the Youtube comments under the videos for the album singles to realise he’s upset a lot of his long term fans. Instead of Lee dropping a glam metal album we would all expect, he has taken 2 years to craft something different, yet uniquely Tommy Lee. The album features a …
