Pixies Tracks Of The Week @Dapzonthemap @JusRival @thisisangel @SIRSPYRO @JorjaSmith

Dapz On The Map – Oh My Days

West Bromwich’s Dapz On The Map is killing it with his latest track releases such as ‘Murdah’ and ‘I Swear,’ showing his adaptability as an artist. We heard the Thomas Mellor produced track earlier this year as the audio was released, and now we get the visuals to match, along with an extra verse added to freshen things up.

Rival – Bright Star

Rival released his album ‘Portrait Of The Underclass’ last week on iTunes and also dropped a track off of there to give his fans a taster. We already heard the intro which was sonically stunning and featured a live band. Now you can listen to ‘Bright Star’ featuring Cameron Bloomfield which sees Rival on his A Game with tough lyrics, sharp flows and a passionate delivery.

Angel – Tongue Song

West London based singer Angel puts a spin on Sisqo’s classic ‘Thong Song’ for new cut ‘Tongue Song.’ This is one sexy song you will expect to be played in the clubs. Angel says, “Just came out the studio with this vibe the other night and needed to put this out straight away.”

Sir Spyro – Side By Side Remix ft. YGG

Taking on the classic original, Grime crew YGG come on board to spit some bars over Sir Spyro’s track ‘Side By Side.’ Asked by Amy Becker to remix the track for a new forthcoming vinyl EP called ‘RMX,’ it’s also been gifted with some pretty cold black and white visuals. This is set to gooooo off in a rave and will definitely be getting reloaded.

Jorja Smith – Where Did I Go

Jorja Smith has quickly built a name for herself, with all of her releases being strong. Her new one as ever is soulful and slick. Produced by Cadenza, he slows the production down, but still keeps the bass and dance element there. Her daring songwriting skills are present again and this is another element that makes her special.

The Sounds Of UK Rap @TheRealDVS @frankofraize @CoopsOfficial @YungenPlayDirty @MegaSas @MayhemSas

DVS

Even though we heard this song from DVS in 2014 off of his classic UK rap mixtape London Boy American Dreaming, we never got the chance to see the visuals. ‘Forgotten’ is definitely an apt name for the track, as this video was found in SBTV’s archives from 2014. Featuring the vocals of Anthony Thomas, this is a love track dedicated to an ex-girlfriend where DVS talks about the good times they had and how he misses her, “I never knew how much I missed ya, till I was scrolling through some old skool pictures, looking back at all the happy memories we shared, the love we had is gone but the memories are there.” It’s something a lot of people can relate to as well.

Coops

North London rapper Coops is back at it with the release of his new track ‘More Time,’ the first track to be taken from his forthcoming debut album God Complex, dropping June 6th. He warms his fans up nicely, helped by his in-house producer Talos, who once again showcases his classic old-school hip-hop influences with a track that is reminiscent of Nas’ ‘NY State of Mind’ and hearkens back to the best of the ’90s era. Coops’ conscious and thought-provoking raps, blend fantastically with his laid-back flow and the relaxed delivery that has gained him worldwide fans and recognition in the music industry. This track is about him airing his thoughts and his observations on topics ranging from religion, the system, spirituality and more. Coops gave some insight into the music he makes: “we are constantly evolving and growing, changing and building upon our opinions and ideas and my music is just a reflection of this.”

Franko Fraize – ‘Only’

Thetford MC Franko Fraize is known for his down-to-earth lyrics, charm and distinct tones and his new track ‘Only’ is no different. He brings elements of drum & bass for this brilliant new track, really showing off what British music is all about – being different and unique. It’s powerful, gritty and street, but also melancholy before the rumbling bassline kicks in. He delivers his raps with emotion and power, and really gets you feeling as though you’re seeing the world through his eyes: “you find that you don’t know what you have got if you don’t know what it’s like to go without.” Franko will be definitely be causing a stir with this hearty, reality track.

Yungen

Yungen captures a summertime vibe for his new single ‘Take My Number’, featuring the sumptuous vocals of West London singer Angel. The UK rap star is trying to get a girl who is “the baddest in the ends,” who although she has a man, Yungen states that, “my home’s better.” Yungen performed the song live at his sold out headline show at Village Underground alongside Angel, causing a storm. Now we get to watch the slick visuals of one of Yungen’s best songs to date, where he’s takes it more down the R&B route, but combined with his wordsmith bars. ‘Take My Number’ is produced by Angel and A.D.P. This is due to be an huge anthem for the radio, clubs and festivals.

SAS

Mega & Mayhem make up SAS ( Streets All Salute) who are veterans in the UK rap scene. They bring us visuals to their heavy new track ‘Alien’, produced by Truth. They rap about people getting bitter and just ignoring them and getting better, but also bring some braggadocious lyrics too. Mayhem raps, “Top 5 starter, I’ll teach you how to ball like Coach Carter, 1 arda, man look up to me like dey father,” letting people know their position in the scene and SAS aren’t to be messed with.

Pixies Tracks Of The Week @JorjaSmith @LethalBizzle @ThisIsAngel @LittleTorment @iamSaintP @TheReal_PK @Lyrical_Strally @StickyBloodUK

Jorja Smith – Blue Lights

There has been a vastly notable spread of impressive female vocalist emerging recently and Jorja Smith is one to add to them. The 18 year old singer released the visuals to her debut single ‘Blue Lights’ and has set the internet alight with this stunning track and her enthralling vocals. She sings in ‘Blue Lights’ about what she sees going on around her, sampling Dizzee Rascal’s ‘Sirens’ a song she describe as “the beginning of my journey,” she then tells the person she’s talking about to run.

Lethal Bizzle ft. JME & Face – BOX

Lethal Bizzle is back with another Diztortion production and enlists one of his old Fire Camp members Face & Boy Better Know’s JME for his hot new single BOX, which is set to top the charts. The video set in a boxing gym has a comical side and makes it fun to watch. It also matches the video’s energy and theme to the track. You can see this is going to be an anthem for the workouts, summertime and festivals.

Angel ft. Haile – Rudeboy

Angel is kicking off 2016 by reminding us he’s still a ‘Rudeboy’ with his brand new single featuring WSTRN’s Haile who lends him accompanying vocals to the hook. It’s great to see Angel back and fresh with a nice new banger that we are going to be hearing a lot of on the radio and clubs. He’s been in the States working with Grammy award winning producer Swizz Beats among others, and we’re likely to see his debut album drop this year too.

Little Torment – So Many Nights

We haven’t heard too much of the South London rapper Little Torment recently, so it’s good to see some new visuals from him. ‘So Many Nights’ comes from Fumez The Engineer’s forthcoming ‘The Mix-tape’ which drops on March 13th and sees other UK artists on it such as Cadet, MS Banks, Joe Black and many more. Torment takes a old skool sounding beat wrapped with a soulful melody in a studio video.

YGG – Don’t Talk Like That

YGG follow up their debut single ‘Okay’ with this banger ‘Don’t Like That’ with Empra on the production. The North West London Grime trio made up of Lyrical Strally, PK & Saint P drop some sizzling bars infused with wordplay. This track is harder than the previous one and will definitely be turning heads and get people skanking out on the dancefloor.

Sticky Blood ft. Snowy & Yxngz – Garn Again

Sticky Blood are the unstoppable duo from Sheffield who are literally putting out release after release and their newest one ‘Garn Again’ is a straight up riddim. With meaty punchlines from Snowy who gives nods to the Grime scenes Godfathers and Yxngz who offers an harmonious hook and slips into the role of an MC adding a verse at the end, it’s a R&G track you’ll not want to stop playing.
