'Tis the season for good vibes, good food and most importantly good music. Artists always provide us with great sonic presents during this time of the year, wether it is a Christmas track or just something special. But, sometimes these can be overlooked due to the hustle and bustle of the season. We bring you the best tracks that have just dropped over the past few days that you may have missed out on.
Sam Wise - Shout Me (Prod. oneninenine)
House of Pharaohs member Sam Wise has blessed us with a new solo project entitled "Unfinished Archives". He's thrown together an archive of unreleased and demo tracks dating back from 2014 for your listening pleasure. It features other dope UK artists such as Tariq Disu, Nemmie Alves, and HOP band members Blaze and Kevin Taylor. "Shout Me" is the stand out track for us, which encapsulates the signature smooth flow that Sam brings teamed up with the chilled production of oneninenine.
Banditsu - Black Xmas (Prod. Ekho)
Banditsu and Canadian producer Ekho have been a force to be reckoned with this year! They have worked heavily together making big hits such as "Katana" and "Loud", with talks of a joint EP dropping soon. On this Christmas joint, Bandi presents us with a dark trap vibe sending powerful shots and reflecting on the past year.
Lash Vanegro Ft. Tokyo The Producer - X N O
Lash Vanegro and Tokyo have both been making noise in the underground scene on their solo career paths. If you haven't already, check out their joint EP "Wonderful Year" to see what I mean. Lash Vanegro is at the forefront of the 'Water Music' sound in the UK and demonstrates it perfectly in this wavey track with Tokyo on the buttons. A little birdy told me there is a solo project coming from Lash very soon. Make sure you come back here for the exclusive drop!
Kwakes - Time
Here at The Pit we rarely cover male singer-songwriters but with a bit of Soundcloud digging you can always come across a gem. Kwakes dropped this beautiful track on Christmas Eve which he states was done "a long time ago" but the piece is timeless as he serenades us over a Freddie Joachim classic.
YT - Sqweeze (I Got The Juice)
Now if you're like me and are a bit of a Grinch, play this one loud! Yoshi has come through with the visuals for another banger under his new label Finesse The World Records. Rum and OJ in hand, this one will have you chanting "I got the juice, I got the juice" at confused family members.
