Check out FLVME’s Highly-anticipated EP ‘Germander II’

After two highly successful singles in the lead up to a highly anticipated EP, FLVME has solidified his position among the best Hip Hop artists coming out of South Africa. He now releases the ‘Germander II EP.’

Germander is a species of flower that is known to have medicinal benefits, and as such, since the inception of the title ‘Germander’, Flvme made this project through the lens of this flower’s life cycle, with the intention to heal all those that consume it.

“I feel this best describes me, I am that flower, a seed planted, watered, left to dry up, revered in my season of blossoming and allowed to bloom, and that’s what the title is for,” he says.

‘Let Me Down’ was the first release of 2022 from the project and is a song about reflecting on past relationships and how they helped shape who he is, “Accepting everything for what it is and understanding that I have to go through a lot in order to grow .. overall it’s just about finding peace within myself,” he says.

Followed by ‘Prayers Up’, the second single from the EP, Flvme raps about his faith and relationship with God, of which he said, “Living in the world and how it is today, I feel like it’s only right to stay prayed up. It’s also about embracing myself as a flawed human being and understanding that the future is never promised.

Germander II finds the artist on a quest to find balance between all the high and lows of life and his career, while remaining ready for any outcome, while remembering to live in the moment. Check it out below…

OUT TODAY: Benny Bizzie Drops 10th EP Chrysalis & Shares Single, ‘On The Double’

London-born singer, rapper and songwriter BENNY BIZZIE returns with a new EP titled ‘Chrysalis’, OUT TODAY!

Supported by Help Musicians/MOBO Awards, The seven-track mini album features producers Cee Figz (Wretch 32, Fredo, Popcaan), Simon Brown (Solar Unit), Benny Bizzie himself, along with Bass guitarist Darren Franklin (Lola Young), and heavy Metal guitarist Less than Hollow.

Alongside the release of the EP, Benny shares his single ‘On The Double’, which shows a different side to him… Benny showcases his signature soulful falsetto over a perfectly balanced fusion of Dancehall and R&B.

Chrysalis is the breaking free from the caterpillar stage to chrysalis to the adult Butterfly where we spread our wings and fly. The EP represents Benny’s growth over the years as a musician as well as a person. The subject matter and maturity of Benny Bizzie is evident and a sure sign of evolution. Chrysalis was created to let others see that they are not alone in the early stages of self discovery. We all have to start somewhere as it’s the nature of life.

He says about the creation of the EP: “I did not imagine any of this when I started making music back in Tottenham, writing bars in my Science and Maths exercise books. I had no clue what I was doing and where it would lead. All I knew was I had to keep moving forward, I had to do the one thing I knew how to do, which was to create music and help people where I could. Chrysalis is my 10th EP and saying that is mind-blowing. It literally has been a journey of self and artistic discovery and the best part about it all, is there is still more to discover and become.”

The EP also features singles, ‘Drunk N Naked’, ‘Forever’ and ‘Window Frame’ already released with over 500k TikTok views, support from CMU, FAC, Sentric, and Trickstar Radios DJ KXVU.
