Listen To K1’s Posthumous Mixtape, ‘Love Never Dies’

The team behind the late K1 released his posthumous 11-track mixtape, ‘Love Never Dies’, with a portion of the proceeds going to two charities selected by his family, Teenage Cancer Trust and Treetops Hospice. Under the direction of K1 before he lost his battle with the illness, the mixtape is a tribute to him, his hard work, and his legacy that will live on. Losing their loved one so young has been incredibly difficult for his family and friends to process but they will do everything they can to help leave a lasting mark on a scene that K1 loved. ‘Love Never Dies’ includes some familiar fan favourites such as ‘Toxic Veins’ and ‘Tomorrow’ featuring KKEDA.

Born and raised in the East Midlands, K1 made a massive impact since his second single, ‘Broken Hearted Crook’ went viral and firmly put him on the map within the UK’s thriving Rap scene. Coming from outside of the capital fuelled his drive and pushed him to work harder and fight for his place, not only for himself but for Derby. There was so much more than meets the eye with this lyricist, he didn’t want to make one specific style, and he aimed to become one of the most versatile Rappers in the
scene, and he did exactly that. K1 cited Eminem, Juice Wrld, XXXTENTACION, Little Tjay and Drake as his biggest influences as an artist.

Some of his career highlights included performing at Wireless Festival, Link Up TV’s HB, Mixtape Madness ‘Cold Room’, and GRM One Mic. K1 had already completed his debut album, which he had planned to drop this year. The whole team behind him are committed to continuing to set out his dream, just as he had intended. Please continue to support K1 and his music – ‘Love Never Dies’ –

Rapper Teddy Reiss Goes On A Grind In Brand New Track ‘Lowkey’

TEDDY REISS‘ brand new single,‘ Lowkey’ gives an insight into his life experience, where he describes as being ‘in a season of hard work before seeing it pay-off fruitfully.’

His direct and powerful lyricism is met with a distinctive guitar riff over a heavy dose of bouncy hip-hop/trap and melodic synths. With a heavy focus on work ethic, ‘Lowkey’ serves as a motivating anthem for the hard-workers who are on a grind every single day.

He wastes no time and started a social enterprise called Rap Association C.I.C, using rap as a tool to educate, entertain and empower the local community. After facilitating rap workshops and producing custom rap songs for corporate events, Teddy turned his hand to songwriting and at that point, he decided to forge a rap career. To further his knowledge in music, Teddy went on to study Music Industry Practice – Creative Artistry at ACM Birmingham. He received the ACE Scholarship in 2019.

Since receiving his ACE Scholarship, Teddy Reiss has produced a mixtape and has worked with UK’s promising underground artists, R&B singer Cherri V, rappers Triple O, Funky DL and Luxury Reem.

A regular performer at various open mics across London, Teddy Reiss hits the studio, creating an ode for the hard-grinders, who are waiting to see the fruits of their labour, through single ‘Lowkey’, out from 10th March on all good music platforms.

T. Fernandez Shares Her Second EP, ‘Once Upon A Melody’.

Produced, mixed and mastered entirely by platinum selling writer Christopher ‘Scam’ Layton, singer-songwriter T. FERNANDEZ‘s second spellbinding body of work ‘Once Upon A Melody’, is an amalgamation of T’s own thoughts and complicated feelings, penned by herself.

Exploring themes of anxiety and self preservation, tracks like ‘Make It Make Sense’ showcase T’s compelling ability to lay it all down on the track. Playful moments on the EP include her collaboration with PaisleighB on track ‘Not With Me’, which bears an unapologetic, no-nonsense vibe. ‘Once Upon A Melody’ is delightfully brought to a close with T’s final offering ‘Saviour’ – a closing affirmation to remember to “show up for yourself through thick and thin”.

Born in West London to a Spanish Father and English Mother, T. Fernandez is an emerging singer-songwriter with a penchant for dreamy storytelling. T was raised in Brighton, where she developed a love for the cello during her primary school days, before returning back to London where she currently resides.

T’s secondary school years were a pivotal time for her as she began to discover her voice and the freedom she felt from singing. Putting down the cello to instead sing along to her favourite songs in her bedroom, this led her to attend a small theatre school after convincing her parents she was destined to pursue a career in music.

Undoubtedly inheriting an innate creative streak from her ballet dancing Mother and artist Father, T describes her upbringing as a time filled with “enriched experiences of the arts” that nurtured her now love and passion for self expression through music. T divulges on growing up with parents from different cultures with different languages, cuisines and customs as something she is “proud of”.

Notably throughout the span of her career, T. Fernandez has been championed and featured throughout a plethora of different mediums including radio plays on Westside, Flex FM, Pulse 88, Deja Vú, Unity Radio, GFM Radio, Rhythm In Britain and Relax and Bake FM, and with appearances on platforms such as the Frequency Platform, Black Owned London’s ‘The Spotlight Sessions’.

Her most notable releases include her debut EP ‘In My Poetic Feels’, with her debut single ‘One’ being one of her personal picks to date.

As she releases her succeeding EP ‘Once Upon A Melody’, T. Fernandez has plans to connect more deeply with listeners of her music throughout 2023 and beyond. Expect live performances, features and collaborations in the near future… have a listen below…
