Song of the Day: Checkmate – Meggz

MEGZZ‘s single, ‘Checkmate’ is a fun, sassy and empowering R&B pop anthem about moving on from a partner who is playing games in a relationship. The catchy and feel-good track promotes self-empowerment and realising one’s worth.

An independent artist from Northamptonshire, whose genre spans RnB, Pop and Neo-Soul, Megzz uses her talents to empower others, promote self-love and speak out about issues such as mental health. Her debut EP ‘Feel My Love’ (2019) explored these topics and introduced her distinctive sound; gaining support from BBC Introducing and notable magazines/blogs such as AnR Factory and Discover Nü. This support continued with her next single (Tell Me Why, 2020) and throughout the pandemic, where Megzz hosted and performed at virtual gigs to raise money for organisations such as Black Lives Matter, Womankind and Mind UK.

Now her latest single is sure to sure her on the radar…have a listen below…

Mixtape Review: Expat – Oloff

What I find so appeasing about Bristolian rapper OLOFF is that you can never guess his next move. His second project of the year, ‘Expat’ took me a bit by surprise as it contain pretty slick uses of samples, ranging from retro soul, right through rock/90s grunge plus samples that has a twang of 50s Hollywood Glamour – see, I told his guy was so delightfully unpredictable!

One thing that’s not predictable is his infamous askew delivery which at times ferociously pierces through some of the most delicate productions (listen to intro single ‘I Don’t Breathe’, ‘Obvious/Someone’s Missing/Luigi’s Mansion)

I appreciate that ‘Expat’ isn’t everyone’s cup of tea or a one size fits all type of mixtape, but it’s definitely worth a go just to hear the juxtaposition of his wayward delivery against the varied arrangements.

Must Listen: I Don’t Breathe, Lord’s Prayer, Luigi’s Mansion
