New Track: Billie Jean – Kid Tana

If you’ve been keeping a close eye on fresh talent via GRM Daily and Link Up TV then KID TANA will certainly not passed you by. Making his debut just six months ago with the hard bodied track ‘Buju Banton’ he then dropped a visual for his Gear 1 freestyle. Now he returns with his banging second joint ‘Billie Jean’!

Taking on the title of the MJ classic, KID TANA hits complicated rap patterns whilst harmonising his colourful writing. Beginning to see a trend in his music, Tana applies several musical influences into one coherent vision that draws on dancehall, trap and afrobeat and hears him flit from the guttural to the sing-along in smooth transition.

‘Billie Jean’ is now available on all streaming and downloads sites…for now, check out the video for the track below…

Mixtape Review: Bixby Beach – Nayla Savannah

I’ve known NAYLA SAVANNAH since starting this blog and it wasn’t until a couple of months ago that this young rapper has resurfaced and dropped her trip-hop number ‘Dial’. I’m soooo glad that she’s still on the scene as I hate to see such talent go to waste.

Cementing her comeback to the scene, Nayla recently dropped her mixtape, ‘Bixby Beach’ which carries on the chilled out theme from her previous efforts, ‘Pretend’ (A MUST LISTEN) and ‘Cruisin’ – a theme that gives the mixtape a perfect introduction through the appropriately named ‘Welcome’.

There were times that a boisterous bassline makes its presence known in the ten piece set through tracks, ‘Forest’ and ‘Thank You’, adding some real satisfying meat to the featherly soundscapes.

Above all what pleases me the most about this mixtape is Nayla’s effortlessly blasé flow. Check her out below:
