EP Review: CurrentSee – Raphael Blake


Following the roaring success of his debut conceptual mixtape, The Undergrad, RAPHAEL BLAKE finds his way back to NEW LEASE MUSIC and slams an innovative EP, CurrentSee.

Coming in the form of four striking visuals, the Nottingham spoken word emcee boldly takes on and elegantly spits the UK’s current affairs, including BREXIT, over the smoothest soulful soundscapes you’ll ever hear in the music industry of today.

The four-track video EP – which was written, filmed, recorded and edited within the 24 hour period (yep, you read right!) by the musical prodigy himself – will further cement his place on the major tastemakers’ playlist….Check out CurrentSee…not to be missed.

One of UK’s most promising hip-hop artist FONZSE has dropped a visual to his compelling single, Mending a Broken Spirit.

Set up in a AA-style meeting, the three-minute production shows the Nottingham-based newcomer baring his whole soul to a therapist with hard-hitting clips revealing the hidden woes of fellow patients.

This is one tuned up emcee…you need to check out the video.

Mending A Broken Spirit is taken from his debut album, Conscious Decisions, available now on Bandcamp.
