Song of the Day: Roots – IYKZ

London based Nigerian rap artist IYKZ has been releasing music independently since 2012, and has always felt that something’s been missing; a connection of some sort. The story; his story, the good the bad and the ugly. The story of his background, IYKZ’ Roots.

“The process of being comfortable in our own skin takes years, and such growth should be celebrated.” – IYKZ

IYKZ is of African decent, he’s Nigerian, patriotic and proud. Having previously collaborated with the likes of Maleek Berry and gaining millions of streams on Spotify, as well as support from tastemakers at BBC 1Xtra and KISS Fresh, IYKZ continues his upward trajectory. This single is what he feels those feelings of inner love and peace sound like. With the rich afro-inspired rap production from Ransom Beatz (Davido, Big Tobz, Runtown), IYKZ explores memories of his childhood, showing his journey much gratitude and adoration….

Why not join him on his nostalgic journey and have a listen to ‘Roots’…

SVNO From Planet Vegeta Links Up With Onefour’s J EMZ For Debut Single, ‘Like We Do’

Members of two of Australia’s most exciting hip hop groups have combined in ground-breaking fashion. Both hailing from Western Sydney, Planet Vegeta’s SVNO and OneFour’s J EMZ mould their styles, attitudes and years of brotherhood in their latest effort ‘Like We Do’.

The track’s most standout quality is the synergy of the two artists and how they combine effortlessly despite their varying sonic backgrounds. SVNO’s luscious R&B vocal delivery is the perfect fold to J Emz’s gritty, drill inspired rap flow. Holding it all together is a glitzy guitar line and blown out 808s, providing the perfect amount of breathing room for the infectious top lines. The track reaches an anthemic peak with its hook, its lyrics an ode to their local area, brotherhood and friendship.

‘Like We Do’ is handed the baton by a significant amount of energy. J Emz’s OneFour have been hailed as the most exciting and impactful Australian act in recent times, a pioneer in the current wave of Australian Hip-Hop. They’ve combined over 100 million streams and in 2019, claimed 3 of YouTube’s top 10 trending Australian music videos. They’ve attracted A$AP Ferg on track, ‘Say It Again’ which saw the New York rap mogul entering their home-made claustrophobic, banging sonic world. They’ve most recently released latest single ‘Home and Away’ from their debut EP to significant acclaim.

Add on the recent track record SVNO’s Planet Vegeta and the momentum for the track accelerates further. Their most recent single, ‘Mai Elle’ put the group on the global map. It received multiple spins on BBC Radio 1, was premiered on Triple J and received editorial support from local key champions Filterzine and Purple Sneakers. Their debut single ‘Jorja’ led to the group becoming Triple J Unearthed Feature Artist of the week in December, Radio 1Xtra support, as well as opening the mainstage at Field Day in 2020. Their online series ‘Sunday School’ also added steam to the hype train, with its debut episode ‘Boys to Brothers’ getting 72,500 views in the first week. The series is sitting just shy of 310,000 views across just 3 episodes.

Song of the Day: Do You Feel Me – Alice Rowe

ALICE ROWE is making a solid name for herself as a talented singer and songwriter who is obsessed with all elements of soul, pop, jazz and r&b. Her recent release even saw radio play from a key tastemaker in the field, Capital Xtra’s very own Leah David. Alice has shown incredible ability to be innovative with her new video. The visuals for ‘Do You Feel Me’ embrace lockdown, and show strength in the demonstration of mental and physical restrictions that are touched upon in the lyrics.

Alice Rowe’s musical inspirations range from greats like Etta James, to the likes of Loyle Carner. Having unleashed her first single in 2019, her music has continued focused on a wide-ranging fusion of muses to showcase her vast vocal ability. Previous singles, ‘Phase’ and ‘Figure You Out’, showcase Alice’s dynamic personality and sophisticated lyrical composition. Having drawn in tastemakers from Radio 1Xtra and BBC Introducing, Alice looks forward to her first EP that will be released later this year, ‘Foreseen’.

The new video for Do You Feel Me exaggerates the claustrophobic conflict musicians, especially, face in times of lockdown. The track follows the story of confused identity, communication and questions surrounding the real me. A feeling of frustration and restriction is prominent in Alice Rowe’s new visual depiction. It perfectly encapsulates the real-life struggles that are magnified world-wide, showcasing epic surrealism faced for music lovers alike.
