We’re proud to announce the first of our new series #Trendsetters today. A regular feature where we ask tastemakers from across the industry to curate a new music playlist which focuses in the hottest emerging talent in their chosen genre.
This week, channel manager at AKA and All Around The World A&R Jade Amber delivers 5 UK Rap and Grime tracks from new and emerging artists on her radar…
Blay Vision – Gone Mad Ft. JME
“Blay Vision is a super talented MC and producer from North London. He’s been on my radar for years but he’s finally getting the recognition he deserves with his latest track!”
Hudson East – Fuego
“Hudson East is an artist I’m really excited about. He stands out from the crowd – his sound is incredibly distinctive and his new EP (‘East ave’) is on repeat in my car!”
Yung Fume – Watch Me Flex
“I’m looking forward to seeing what’s in store for Yung Fume – “Watch Me Flex” is massive and he’s just had Tinie Tempah jump on the remix!”
Suspect – FBG
“Suspect has been on my radar for a while now. “FGB” is almost a year old but the reaction its getting in the clubs is mental! Can’t wait to see what he comes with next.”
Hardy Caprio – Together Ft. Not3s
“I’m a huge fan of Hardy Caprio – we’ve been supporting him on AKA for a couple of years and I think he’s got massive potential!”
Big thanks to Jade @JadeAmberB for these picks! Next weeks #Trendsetter is Alex Baker from Kerrang and Absolute Radio with an Alt Rock playlist.
