Master Peace Ft. Kasien – Slow Song
Genre-defying artist Master Peace has released his anthemic new single ‘Slow Song’. Gritty guitars, an instantly infectious chorus and moshpit-ready production combine on the track, which also features rising London rapper Kasien. The latest single to be released from Master Peace’s upcoming Public Display Of Affection EP. Peace says of the video for ‘Slow Song’: “The underground needed this to happen!” “The droptop and the highly-gassed energy in the video really portrays that in such a fun way. It’s a mix of the old and the new Master Peace sound at the same time – that’s what makes it what it is.”
Latto – The Biggest
Today, Atlanta-based rapper Latto (formerly Mulatto) shares new single and video ‘The Biggest’, the first official release under her new moniker and of 2021. The highly anticipated Supah Mario & Akachi produced release explains the 22-year-old rapper’s reasoning for the stage name change, her intentions and moving forward with this new phase of her career. With the new name Latto proves she’s still going to deliver in the way people have grown to love. On ‘The Biggest’ she again proves that her pen game, replete with witty and raw verses, is unmatched.
Kwaku Asante – Angel
‘Angel’ emerges as a throwback to classic musicianship; beautifully lithe guitar instrumentation giving an airy bed for Kwaku’s trademark baritone, and complex, dark lyricism to play across. An ambitious, seemingly gorgeous love song with enough invention to make it a real moment – sonically it’s a track to mark the moments of life, but lyrically it’s a dark, toxic spiral. It is the first single to be released from his upcoming ODE EP and it’s the perfect track to warm audiences up ahead of the project’s release.
Sinéad Harnett – Ready Is Always Too Late
Ready Is Always Too Late is the highly anticipated second album from breakout R&B star Sinéad Harnett. It features previously released collaborations with EARTHGANG, Masego and VanJess as well as a new collaboration ‘Anymore’ featuring Lucky Daye. The project is all about Sinéad celebrating her journey to embodying the best version of herself and that comes through a mix of empowering messages alongside moments of introspective vulnerability.
Miller Blue – Day By Day
Multifaceted UK talent Miller Blue has unveiled new single ‘Day By Day’. Inspired by personal experience and steeped in emotion, ‘Day By Day’ is a soulful, R&B-leaning bop that promotes an underlying message of taking each day as it comes. Progressing with layers of jazzy saxophone, light flute and soft piano keys, It follows recent singles ‘Blush’ and ‘Me, Myself & I’, with all three tracks set to feature on Miller’s forthcoming EP project The Tree Of Tenéré, out on 11th June.
