Welcome to the latest of instalment of #MusicMonday. Get your week off to the right start with the very best music curated by Alexandra Ampofo with a special addition from our Editor:
Kojey Radical [@KojeyRadical] – JP Cooper – Party ft Kojey Radical
This one is not actually Kojey’s track, it’s JP Cooper’s, but it’s only right to add to the shine Kojey Radical already has. He absolutely killed his verse, lyrically, not to mention his oh so artistic aesthetics in the video. If you’ve had he pleasure of watching Kojey grow throughout the years, you will already know he artistry is something spectacular. In fact, there probably isn’t even a word in the English language to describe how effortless his poetry comes across. Check out ‘Party’ and let us know what you think.
Abra Cadabra [@AbzNoProblem7] – Robbery ft Krept & Konan
Abz is the newest guy on the scene, even although he’s been around for a little while, it was his Black Box freestyle that caught a lot of heat underground, which led to him having Krept and Konan on the ‘Robbery’ remix. I think I speak for most people who enjoy rap, this remix is insane, Krept and Konan’s slightly aggressive bars fit the whole motion of ‘Robbery’. This Tottenham boy is definitely one to watch.
Vibbar – Summer of Love [@OfficialSkribz, @CallMeSkits, @theconfect @jmukeza]
Summer of Love is the latest instalment via the Vibbar collective. Vibbar meaning vibes in Swedish, these four definitely brought the summer vibes with this anthem. Took a little while for it to grow on me, but now it’s on repeat constantly. This track is full of colour, vibrancy and playful lyrics, but can you guess the sample?
Barney Artist – intro (prod. By SELVSSE) @BarneyArtist @SELVSSE
Sonically, this body of work I took this intro from is amazing. Barney recently dropped his mixtape, titled ‘Painting Sounds’. The first track was produced by all round dope boy SELVSSE, which is a perfect combination of I do say so myself. Intro has a driving sultry tone throughout, reminding me of an old school vibe but still very artfully progressive.
Editor’s Choice: Telefone by NoName
I couldn’t let the week pass without acknowledging the magic that we have all been blessed with within the last 24 hours. Noname has dropped her debut project and you have to listen. Noname is a breath of fresh air, with her thought-provoking lyricism and her engaging flow, the best decision you can make today is to get on the Telefone.
