This series covers the best submission tracks we have recently received and expose you to some great artists from around the world.

 

S I M - Madly In Love (Ft. The Kaleidoscope Kid)

“This that feel good music” - no truer words have ever been spoken on an opening line. This is feel-good to the core and has that funk bounce to go along with it. North meets West as Stroud native S I M partners up with The Kaleidoscope Kid from Phoenix, Arizona to give you Madly In Love - a track borrowing from the old school but never sounding dated. This track comes fresh off the cleverly titled EP D U M S I M & Friends which is out now via Polar Opposites.

 

Yugen Blakrok - Carbon Form

I few months back I was thinking to myself, “where are all the female alternative rap artists representing this new age sound?” and out pops Yugen Blakrok from South Africa, who featured on last years OST for Black Panther. Her music style and image is raw, unforgiving and straight gutter rap taking me back to the early days of Lauryn Hill, reflected in her latest track Carbon Form.

 

Fevra - Give It Back (Ft. D. Hart, Empara, Modmaxx & T.yyy)

Heading over to Canada now we have Fevra who featured on our last Alt Hip Hop Playlist but I had to pull a double on this one because it’s a hit! Give It Back is one out of eighteen beautiful tracks from Fevra’s deeply collaborative debut album ‘Villanova Junction’. The journeys you go through on this project are deep and wonderful, showcasing the breath of talent Toronto has to offer.

 

QuinceLu - Threat (Ft. Lil Ominous) [Prod. Wicho Beatz]

QuinceLu aka The Migo Bendito comes vicious with his new joint Threat featuring his South Florida amigo Lil Ominous. Quince has shown his lyrical prowess in previous tracks such as Sta$h and Do Me Wrong but this track is for the streets ears only. Threat is a heavy warning sign for all the drillers and hitters out there.

 

yusef slim - debbie downer

London’s deep dark secret yusef slim with his resigned sick flow story tells us through his love with chemical vices in ‘debbie downer’. With his impeccable play on words, Slim’s many flows weave effortlessly throughout the Lo-Fi backing track provided by Sheep Head.
