Song of the Day: Sundown – Juice Menace

Following on from the success of underground hits ‘Bounterfeit’ and ‘Money Dance’, the latter of which led her to be named as Triller’s UK creator of the month, Cardiff hailing rapper JUICE MENACE strikes back with a banger titled, ‘Sundown’ which sees her take on a jumpy, garage influenced instrumental that, lyrically, explores her level-headed sense of ambition and drive.

In an already solid start to 2020, Juice has received props from early champions Gal-Dem, who named her a Ones to Watch 2020 artist, and Spotify, who profiled her in prominent playlist “Rap UK”. She’s also attracting support from UK Rap royalty – taking on Aitch’s 101 Barz Freestyle instrumental, Juice was praised by Aitch himself. Pre-lockdown, Juice had been travelling back and forth from Cardiff to London to collaborate with some of the biggest producers in the game – Flyo, Michelin Shin, SOS and Elevated.

Juice brings a wealth of promise to the scene – with a background in photography, dance and music technology, she is poised for polymath-level success. Taking inspiration from some of the US West Coast’s most formidable figures, such as Mac Dre, YG and Vince Staples, who effortlessly dominate many creative paths from music, to fashion and film, she is bringing this energy to the West Coast of the UK. The video for ‘Sundown’ embraces this multi-faceted ambition. Conceptualised by Juice herself, the video combines her vibrant performance style with a classic summer image of the Cardiff coastline.

Continuing to solidify her place in the scene as one of the most determined rappers in the UK right now, 2020 is looking to be a breakout year for Juice as she experiments with new genres and proves to be an undeniable force to reckoned with. Check out the video for Juice’s ‘Sundown’ below…

 

 

EP Review: For The Uninformed – Nicki Knightz

I’ve always known NICKI KNIGHTZ to be that rapper who fiercely take on the boldest of the boldest arrangements with her no nonsense flow, but her latest EP, ‘For The Uninformed’, has caught me off guard. With the exception of the drum bass heavy/Congolese guitar sample, ‘Blacker the Berry,’ which pays homage to her father’s work ethic, the EP shows a soft and perhaps a more vulnerable side to the Hackney native.

The three-track set sees Nicki focusing on the neglected identity issues of being biracial, eliminating any glamorized images of being a light skinned person. In second effort, ‘India Arie’, Nicki gives a vivid account of the problems her parents faced when contending with her hair, over a warped soulful/jazz instrumentation. An old-school soulful drive makes its presence known and runs sombrely throughout concluding track, ‘1964 Howlett Drive’, serving as the perfect backdrop for Nicki’s uncharacteristically emotive delivery, which gives an insight of her experiencing her mother’s culture and its heartbreakingly stark contrast to their life in the innercity area.

A complete 180 to her sonically boisterous 2018 debut EP ‘Hate’, ‘For The Uninformed’ takes on a more minimalist theme, allowing the uninformed to really soak up and resonate with the experience of her childhood.
