What’s great about the young and developing scene we have in London (and beyond), is the sheer diversity of it. It seems every day a new artist is coming to our attention, sounding new and innovative and original, yet still so distinctly British.
Artists are getting weird and artists are getting experimental, and it’s due time we started highlighting some of these creatives that may otherwise slip under our radar. With that being said, welcome back to Go Left; GRM’s guide to alternative grime, hip-hop and R&B, the best of what you may not have heard yet.
The 30th edition of Go Left is upon us and we’ve got a conglomeration of dope R&B, grime and hip-hop tracks for you.
Introducing the playlist, Yiigaa comes through with some old school Lauryn Hill vibes on “Eternal”, whilst London rapper Grafter changes his style up on “Euphoria” produced by Thovo Beats.
New World Ray drops “Never Sober”, featuring The Section and KA$H, which was made in Paris during Fashion Week, admitting once he quit weed his motivation and work ethic was enhanced. Proton alters the mood belligerently with “212”, going off on a drill influenced beat.
Finally, we end with “Eurostar” by rappers Yus and Frenzy from collective CXCV, who go back to back over a watery and soulful beat.
We will be uploading more alternative videos onto our YouTube channel. If you fit in with those who don’t fit in, are part of the Go Left gang and have something wavy for us, send an email to [email protected].
