The first track to feature in volume 2 of our emerging artists is from London based rock/r’n’b artist, Greighwolfe. Relatively new to the scene, he’s spent the last 5 months performing over in the UK and in the States, recently playing at the renowned SXSW festival. All of his tracks from his debut EP ‘Black’ are up for free download on his soundcloud, well worth a listen – oh and a live recording from an Okay session recorded late last year.
Next up is from Aussie born George Maple. We’ve been playing out her tracks since we spotted her beautiful debut track ‘Fixed’ a couple years back (not forgetting the Maribou State remix!). Releasing work on Australian label Future Classic that never ceases to disappoint with countless talent.
Kali Uchis, third track in – she’s been working with the likes of Tyler, The Creator, Kaytranada and BADBADNOTGOOD on production, it’s no surprise that Snoop Dogg has just snapped her up on one of his tracks. We really like her work and is helping us feel that summer is only around the corner – especially with her track ‘Know What I Want’.
Further down we’ve featured the indie four piece Flyte with their latest release ‘Light Me Up’. We caught a gig of theirs a few months back with support from MOVIE. (who we featured back in our November update) – a solid performance from the all the boys. They’ve been booked to play at one of our favourite UK festivals, Secret Garden Party in July.
Closing off our playlist is from the Gilles Peterson curated remix album of Melanie De Biasio’s ‘No Deal’. Our favourite remix of the album coming from the incredibly versatile producer and rapper Jonwayne. The album features remixes from EELS, Seven Davis JR, Clap! Clap! and The Cinematic Orchestra – definitely worth checking out.
