London’s most exciting and talented young rappers, 19 year old 5EB drops his first video for track ‘Silento’ since the release of his highly acclaimed ‘Yin & Yang’. With this latest drop, 5EB is stepping up his game to deliver one of the most bouncy and exciting summer vibes of the year.
The single sees 5EB in his element, rapping over a self produced, intoxicating saxophone infused beat, delivering his trademark wavy style. His matter of fact and mature-for-his-age lyricism has seen him develop a strong and devout cult fan base – a true testament of his talent. The track comes accompanied by a visual from emerging director and close friend Movie Making Mitch.
Speaking on ‘Silento’, 5EB states “Silento is a reflection of young people’s lives, specifically through a Londoners view”.
Having only begun to take music seriously at the age of 15, 5EB has since gone on to collaborate with the likes of One Acen on ‘Scum’ which received a big reception from the UK rap scene, as well as feature on Mixtape Madness’s ‘Next Up’ freestyle series, being named on Dummy Mag’s Top 10 Under 18s and opening proceedings on the impressive BL@CKBOX 2021 U18 Cypher, now sitting at 2 million views. 5EB has continued to see comparisons to the likes of Knucks and Sam Wise, with his music making him ever increasingly prolific in London’s rap scene.
New York’s emcee IamDJSTAXX continues to capitalise on the momentum he has built as he is primed to release the third and final chapter of the Lost Talent Series, ‘Lost Talent 3’.
After releasing the first chapter in 2018 and the second one in 2019, he is now all set to offer the new fully-loaded EP. Released via UpNexx Digital LLC, This six-track project sees IamDJStaxx joining forces with new talents, Rah Dior and WaveGodTj.
A perfect combo of smooth after-hours tones along with a heavy bass introduces the EP with the track, ‘Ina Minute,’ which is topped off by the fiery bounce of IamDJStaxx’s and WaveGodTj’s delivery.
Some slick guitar plucks lead the way in the second effort, ‘It Is What It Is’ blossoming into a mid-tempo, cursing-in-the-summer noughties-inspired R&B (which is kind of reminiscent of a Ja Rule/Ashanti collaboration), where IamDJStaxx and WaveGodTj continues to light up the feel-good joint with some fiery bars.
In the second half of ‘Lost Talent 3’, IamDJStaxx calls on fellow NY rapper Rah Dior to inject a heavy dose of trip-hop that runs deep in tracks ‘Like Me,’ ‘Bandz,’ and ‘Flingz,’ where the two take turns in dropping some melodic bars that melt right into the arrangements.
IamDJStaxx’s final installment, ‘Lost Talent 3, ’ encompasses the past and the present, which can potentially be a worthy collection of generations who enjoyed the 90s/00s R&B and trap and even drill music. Check out the EP below and the blog’s song recommendations:
Must Listens: InA Minute, It Is What It Is, Flingz
SCOOBY JONES‘ debut single, ‘How The Hell You Make A Man’ stops you in your tracks. It’s like hearing Gnarls Barkley’s ‘Crazy’ or Ben Pearce’s ‘What I Might Do’, Drake’s ‘Passion Fruit’ or some other blissful earworm you just knew was an instant classic able to stand the test of time which you would be playing on repeat for years to come, with no fear of growing tired of it.
Described on the YouTube video in hashtag speak as #Ibiza #Poolside #House you quickly get the vibe we’re heading for, but this does also bare the hallmarks of a deeper, hugely intelligent artist at work. The lyricism and wit of Sleaford Mods comes to mind, and there is that dash of British punk about Scooby’s swagger, but essentially this purest of soul voices able to see with his voice what you’d only imagine Stevie Wonder sees with his inner vision is just a thing to behold, whilst his co-conspirator, producer and multi-instrumentalist Ben Jones (Kelly Rowland, Tinie Tempah, Lalah Hathaway) locks us into a heavy groove.
What’s very exciting is Scooby Jones is just a man. A very talented one, nonetheless who is currently working on a solo album which promises even more. Based in South London and perhaps a tad familiar to some having been around the music ether for the past decade popping up on funk tracks featured on 6 Music and Radio 2 due to his insane vocal abilities and lovable nice guy personality, working behind the scenes as a songwriter with artists such as Swedish House Mafia, Artful Dodger and Chaz Jankel (Ian Dury and The Blockheads) and also touring alongside the likes of Black Eyed Peas, Ice-T, Ed Sheeran and Alexander O’Neal.
A stalwart of the London live music scene since 2008 as curator/host of one of London’s most beloved ‘open mic/jam nights’, where only the best of the best would generally make their way to the stage. Scooby now divides his time between making music and directing music videos, including the video for this momentous debut single ‘How The Hell You Make A Man?’ which is out now with various remixes due for release throughout spring/summer 2021.
As the BBQ season is rapidly coming up, I thought I slip through this laid-back, summer-ready banger, ‘Slide With Me’ by Canadian singer-songwriter/rapper B.ROB.
Featuring a melodic harp working in harmony with the 90s-inspired R&B sample, the single captures the fun and vibrancy that the hot season brings – but until then, why not check out the official video for the single below…oh, and don’t forget to add this sizzler to your playlist for those summer party nights.
