Hot on the heels of a huge summer which saw him bring his mesmerising vocals and must-see stage performances to both Wireless and V Festivals, UK R&B singer-songwriter ANGEL has shown no signs of slowing down with the release of his new EP HER earlier this month – which has already been streamed almost 400,000 times in less than two weeks – and now the brand new visual for his track Fvxk With You featuring US rap artist Rich Homie Quan.

With west London meeting America’s ‘dirty south’, delivered courtesy of an explosive 16 bars from Rich Homie Quan, the Atlanta, Georgia hip-hop artist currently taking the music industry by storm, Fvxk With You has already started to make a huge splash across both sides of the Atlantic and is set to be taken to the new heights with the new visual, filmed in the rapper’s ATL neighbourhood.

HER EP is a collection of six slick and sultry R&B jams produced by Angel and showcasing his incredible songwriting ability and flair for hypnotic hooks and earworm melodies. Seeing him continue to build on the waves he created with his previous releases this year, the EP features two further new tracks, the soon-to-be new favourites Thelma and Louise and the Bobby Brown sampling Me & You. HER also includes Hop On featuring rising UK rapper Stefflon Don and the powerful Rude Boy featuring Haile from WSTRN, which along with the remix – which saw him join forces with JME (Boy Better Know), Wretch 32 and Tally – collectively amassed over 2 million combined streams and garnered support from Radio 1Xtra and Rinse FM.

New Track: Yellow Chevy – L Marshall

L marshall

After bursting onto the scene back in 2011, featuring as a guest vocalist on Wretch 32ʼs critically acclaimed hit Traktor and penning Loick Essienʼs No.2 smash How We Roll, L MARSHALL has since been plotting away silently. His latest record Yellow Chevy was a collaboration with Supadups (Drake’s ʻControlaʼ and ‘Too Good’) and gives a first glance at the singerʼs matured style ahead of the release of his debut album The Amazing Time Machine.

Born Thomas Griffith in London, L struggled with having to conform during school. He remembers. “I was so much trouble that my mum decided to send me to Nigeria to learn some discipline!”. He returned to London at 18 to study Sound Engineering. During this time, he continued to build on the songwriting he’d started as an 11 year-old. Choosing the name L Marshall both in honour of a character from the Manga series Death Note, and as  a  nod  to his joint hometowns of London  and  Lagos,  he  began  to  work  with  new producers.

L’s debut mixtapes The Wait and Kiss the Fire displayed a singer able to rock any beat; from gritty grime to emotive R&B, he flips effortlessly between fully-sung vocals to rap-sung choruses. Inspired by everything from relationships, to paying the bills, to dealing with life’s various poisons, this already proven hit-creator is modest but ambitious about his future goals. “I talk a lot about becoming known worldwide but I just want to reach as many people as possible… To be recognised and appreciated for what I do is really all I hope for.”

New Track: Stop – Alesha Dixon (Ft. Wretch 32) – SRNO Remix

alesha dixon stop

ALESHA DIXON flashes back to her ro xp/so8yz7.ots on her latest video for Stop featuring the wordsmith, and one of the UK’s finest rappers Wretch 32.

Producer SRNO is on the buttons for the first remix to be heard of Alesha’s new single, which was given it’s radio premiere last week by Ras Kwame on Capital Xtra. He’s the man behind tracks with some of the UK’s hottest artists such as K Koke and TE DNESS.

Bringing a stand-out, effortless, R&B edge, Alesha mixes up the track as she drops her much-loved quicktime flow that stood her apart from any other female in the UK scene in the noughties. One of the original queens of UK R&B, Alesha has become one of the countries sweethearts and gained huge success in the pop world, however this track brings her home.

Starting off as one thirds of UK Garage group Mis-Teeq, Alesha was the rude girl rapper that no-one at the time could beat. She smoothly transformed into a judge to become Saturday teatime TV royalty to two of the Nation’s favourite programs; Strictly Come Dancing and Britain’s Got Talent, as well as beginning a solo career. She has become a style icon as well as an artist and a presenter that Britain cannot get enough of.

A singer of nine Top 10 singers and three platinum albums, she has received Brit Awards and MOBO Awards nominations. Her new, fourth studio album Do It For Love, where this single is taken from, is being released on Alesha’s own independent label Precious Stone Records. It’s an infectious, Summer R&B jam produced by DaBeatfreakz. Alesha opens the track stating her power, “You ready? I’m supersonic, bionic” which is partnered with a hot 16 from Wretch 32 who adds to the flavoursome track, bringing his powerful and confident lyrics.

Alesha continues to slay, this time on her own where she makes all of the rules.

The single gives a first glimpse of the ten-track project and offers nothing less than two minutes of silky smooth rap with the hot property on the top of his game alongside trusted producer Turkish Dcypha (Island Records)

Adding a unique twist to some of his favourite classic soul records, the 2014 mixtape My Funked Up Soul was so well-received that he was inspired to create the S.U.M.M.E.R. EP shortly after. Tracks such as The Ride featuring Giggs, Finer Taste with Wretch 32 and Soul Food featuring Max Marshall – all playlisted on BBC Radio 1Xtra – helped the EP to the iTunes hip-hop top ten.
