It’s a hell of a while since NAYLA SAVANNAH has graced this blog with her 2020 single, ‘Rollin’ and 2019 mixtape ‘Bixby Beach’. Fast forward to today, the California smooth spitter drops a mature sound to her dazy trademark on the brand new single ‘Porch’.
A song about finding peace and power within yourself, Nayla’s new offering captures the free spirit and inspirational lyricism that have earned Nayla Savannah a reputation as one of the most promising young women in modern hip-hop.
‘Porch’ was released on Tuesday (28th June) across various music platforms. Go and have a listen….
Right from the beginning, ETHANPIL‘s EP, ‘FUK Being Famous Vol.1’ bursts with trap-like beats combined with heavy-rolling bass, that just pops and hits between the eyes… and trust me on this one, this mini collection is more than ready to BLOW OFF the roof of any house party.
‘UK Being Famous Vol.1’ slows down (just a little) with tracks, ‘You Doing 2 Much’, ‘Slow’ and ‘Disrepectful Shiit’ all still retaining the trap/heavy bass combo (which is obviously a neat trademark of this slick spitter) but with a slight laid-back feel in the air. The EP bounces right back to speed with ‘Active’, bringing back that much-needed, head-bopping energy from the beginning.
All I have to say about this EP is, if you wanna start your summer right, well this is the best place to start. Check out ‘UK Being Famous Vol.1’ below and songs recommendations…
Must listens: Fuk Being Famous, 100K, Slow, Disrespectful Shiit
Already being supported by DJ Target at BBC 1Xtra and featuring sun-dappled chords and a soft bassline, ‘All Night’ is a dream of a record that flows through a contemporary pop and R&B space. Crafted perfectly with soulful instrumentation and an exceptional vocal that instantly melts you into the vibe of the track, it is also the coming of TREVIS.
Caressing the track with his soft, caramel tones that waver with soul as he lays down his vocals across the record, Trevis remains the star throughout, ensuring each lyric is perfectly placed with clarity and delivery. Detailing a night driving around the city after meeting a girl, the track captures the feeling of being in the moment and the burning, lustful desire of being with someone new.
Born and raised in Norway, Trevis found a place to call home in the musical melting pot of California, where he found his way to the studios of super-producer Harmony Samuels and the BOE Camp. Responsible for hits with Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, Ariana Grande, Fifth Harmony, Chip, Ciara, Chris Brown and many more, Trevis would sit at the back of Harmony’s studio sessions, listening and watching top-tier musicians in their space and dissecting the formula of how to bring the best out in that creative moment. Inspired and educated, Trevis found that creating his own music became his therapy and a healthy outlet to express himself.
Speaking on the single, Trevis says: “All Night is the first song I did with my UK brothers Sons Of Sonix, a collab with them was way overdue. The same night we made it, we posted a snippet of it on IG, and it immediately sparked something. The whole flow of it just felt right. We were getting mad love online, from UK icon Wretch 32 to one of my favourite Nigerian artists Oxlade.”

SARA DIAMOND’s single ‘Lovin’ From You’ (feat. Nick Grant) is a rather provocative and steamy joint about longing for a lover’s affection in a playful way. The lyrics evoke a feeling of sensuality, being totally honest and loud about love.
The accompanied visuals connect to a 4-part story from the California singer-songwriter’s forthcoming EP inspired by empowerment, love, and letting go of inhibitions. This segment involves the deep subconscious, exploring themes of lust, delusion, and heightened emotions. Have a look below…
Today, electro-pop singer, songwriter and producer IZZA returns with her new single and video, ‘Love Bracelets.’
‘Love Bracelets’ is an instantly infectious, club-ready single that spreads an empowering message of self-love. Expanding on the new song, Izza says: “I used to value my worth based on how people viewed me and what relationships I was in or wasn’t in. I wrote ‘Love Bracelets’ when I started focusing on myself and discovered that true happiness doesn’t come from loving someone else, but by loving yourself.” Fusing trap-inspired beats, experimental synths and digitized vocals, “Love Bracelets” puts Izza’s knack for creating addictive electro-pop gems on full display.
Inspired by her upbringing in California, Izza’s gritty pop sound and unapologetic lyrics explore the duality between fantasy and reality as she attempts to find purpose in a materialistic world. At age 13, writing songs became a form of therapy and productive rebellion for Izza— an outlet to express herself and her struggles without restriction or consequence.
Since making her debut in 2020 with the release of her first single, ‘405,’ Izza has quickly risen as a unique force in the pop scene. In the past two years, she’s racked up over 200K streams, generated noteworthy blog buzz, and performed at 320 Festival, an online mental health music festival, alongside acts like Chris Martin (Coldplay), Kiiara, Elohim, and Echosmith.
