Song of the Day: Bit By Bit – Jareth

London-based JARETH has unveiled the next cut to be lifted from her debut solo EP, her new single ‘Bit By Bit’ premiered online via COMPLEX and on-air with DJ Ace at 1Xtra.

Having previously lent her commanding vocals to collaborations with Rene LaVice, Bashy, Lioness and Ghetts, this year’s release of ‘Kaleidoscope’ and it’s Hybrid Minds remix picked up strong support from the likes of CLASH, Trench Magazine and UKF, alongside multiple spins on Twin B’s BBC 1Xtra show and a playlist addition from Spotify Denmark. ‘Bit By Bit’ continues to showcase JARETH as a master of her craft, as her voice glides effortlessly above lusciously orchestrated strings. Championed by will.i.am and having penned tracks for Cheryl and Chris Lake, the singer-songwriter is due to release her EP, ‘Moonchild’, later this year through new label Moonshot Music.

The new single sees JARETH working with producer Charlie J Perry (Jorja Smith, Maverick Sabre, Samm Henshaw) again and building on the blissfully soulful soundscape that made ‘Kaleidoscope’ so intoxicating. Telling a personal story of having to put ‘yourself back together again in the dark after being broken in the light’, JARETH has found strength in her vulnerability and only truly began to understand herself when she was at her weakest.

With JARETH’s expressive vocal at the core of the track, mirrored by delicate piano and washes of cinematic strings, ‘Bit By Bit’ is undoubtedly a standout from the forthcoming EP and really celebrates her unique talent…so start your Monday right and listen to ‘Bit By Bit.’

New Music Video: Been Hustlin’ – Guvna B

Blazing straight on to Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist, Apple Music’s Best of the Week and DJ Target’s #UKUnsigned record of the day, GUVNA B releases his new single ‘Been Hustlin’, the second track taken from his forthcoming album.

Centering on life lessons and rebelling against the status quo, ‘Been Hustlin’ is ultimately an insight into GUVNA B and the impressive journey the musician has been on. The double MOBO award-winning rap and grime star lays down energetic and inspiring lyricism with his signature delivery across the melodic rap instrumental, while cheeky samples of Only Fools and Horses draw reference to the ultimate hustler, Del Boy.

Having previously released the UK’s highest charting ‘clean’ Rap album in 2015 and subsequently achieving an Amazon bestseller for his debut book release ‘Unpopular Culture’ in 2017, GUVNA B has long since been acknowledged for both his exemplary music and audacious application to his craft. He’s played the O2 Arena, Wembley Stadium and toured through North America, Australasia, Africa and Europe. He has worked with Destiny Child’s Michelle Williams, Matt Redman, Martin Smith, Hillsong and Nick Brewer, and platforms such as BBC, Sky News, and MTV have recognised his courage and success at making a positive impact through his music.

The accompanied video is an insight to the songs inspiration. GUVNA B explained: “My dad was a proper hard worker right up until he died. I feel like I took on that trait but I was working towards the wrong things and buying lots of things just so I could stunt. This single is about me finding out what’s really important in life”.

Yet even with such poignant meaning running deep, GUVNA B displays his sharp wit and cheeky personality. Check out the new video below from black Del Boy himself.
