Song of the Day: Light Work – CRSWHT

I suspect you guys had a tiring week, dying for your weekend to start with a bang. That’s why I’ve decided to leave you in the very capable hands of Chris Whyte – aka CRSWHT – and his track, ‘Light Work’. The New York spitter certainly makes light work of this seriously hard banger by slamming down a mindblowingly swift flow.

Song of the Day: Do You Feel Me – Alice Rowe

ALICE ROWE is making a solid name for herself as a talented singer and songwriter who is obsessed with all elements of soul, pop, jazz and r&b. Her recent release even saw radio play from a key tastemaker in the field, Capital Xtra’s very own Leah David. Alice has shown incredible ability to be innovative with her new video. The visuals for ‘Do You Feel Me’ embrace lockdown, and show strength in the demonstration of mental and physical restrictions that are touched upon in the lyrics.

Alice Rowe’s musical inspirations range from greats like Etta James, to the likes of Loyle Carner. Having unleashed her first single in 2019, her music has continued focused on a wide-ranging fusion of muses to showcase her vast vocal ability. Previous singles, ‘Phase’ and ‘Figure You Out’, showcase Alice’s dynamic personality and sophisticated lyrical composition. Having drawn in tastemakers from Radio 1Xtra and BBC Introducing, Alice looks forward to her first EP that will be released later this year, ‘Foreseen’.

The new video for Do You Feel Me exaggerates the claustrophobic conflict musicians, especially, face in times of lockdown. The track follows the story of confused identity, communication and questions surrounding the real me. A feeling of frustration and restriction is prominent in Alice Rowe’s new visual depiction. It perfectly encapsulates the real-life struggles that are magnified world-wide, showcasing epic surrealism faced for music lovers alike.

SPRTYK Reveals Visuals For Critically-Acclaimed Single, ‘Bad Temper’

When SPRTYK (pronounced Sporty K) pitched her latest single ‘Bad Temper’ for Spotify playlist consideration, it was selected for three editorial playlists (Spilled Ink, Mellow Bars, Alternative Hip Hop) and two algorithmic playlists including the coveted Discover Weekly. Those editorial and algorithmic playlists have driven the track to nearly a quarter million streams.

The accompanied visual – shot in her native Bronx – follows the emotional highs and lows of a top female draft pick / artist-in-bloom determined to win against all odds as she fights to escape the all too familiar “angry black female” stereotype, giving the two-finger gesture to the oversimplified characterisations of being hostile and overly aggressive.

Besides establishing herself as a formidable rapper, SPRTYK is also the CEO of STAR CLUB ENTERTAINMENT where she works as the creative director and stylist for other acts in New York’s eclectic scene including A$AP Ferg and Privilege New York.

‘Bad Temper’ forms part of her upcoming ‘Because I Feel Like It’ project, SPRTYK is set to continue being one of 2020’s favourite new music discoveries.
