Cuzzy Q – Late Bloomer

I guess it is high time to present some decent rapping here, don’t you think? It will be brought to us by Cuzzy Q, a 19-year-old artist from Chicago, who among his hip hop peers has been the last one to publish a proper project – hence the title of the album is Late Bloomer. But I don’t see anything wrong in taking one’s time to hone his craft in order to eventually come up with something extraordinary. This is exactly what happened in the case of this American artist as Late Bloomer is full of potential that is ready to explode in the near future. And then, who knows, maybe the Q in Cuzzy Q will be as valuable as the one in Q-Tip’s nickname?

Fishing – Chi Glow (featuring Marcus Whale)

Chi Glow is an extremely relaxing chillwave track with elements of tropical beats (anyone misses Orquesta as much as I do?) released by the Sydney-based duo Fishing in collaboration with Marcus Whale, vocalist of the Adelaide band Collarbones. It is the first single from their upcoming debut album Shy Glow which will come out on the 6th of June and with such smooth synths, hazy vocals and laid-back rapping (yeah, there is rapping here) we can quite safely assume that it will end up as the best soundtrack for the hot summer months.

Presenting: Ashnikko

Ashnikko is a musical moniker of Ashton Casey, a girl from North Carolina who is just eighteen years old but already raps like a pro. She is currently honing her craft in Riga, Latvia (pretty unobvious place to move to from the USA, isn’t it?) and if her extreme talent will keep on evolving, this cute hip-hop-beast will achieve a lot.

Kweku Collins – Nat Love

Remember Kweku Collins? We featured his debut release back in September last year and since then this Chicago-based rapper has been publishing new tracks every few weeks. Just few hours ago an awesome new tune called Nat Love has seen the light of the day and it proves that Kweku is a master of perfectly balanced chill rapping.

Sawtuha Compilation

What else could we expect from Olof Dreijer after the release of Shaking The Habitual if not getting involved in another difficult social issue? This time, however, it is not about gender ideology or fighting against extreme wealth but the main concern is the situation of women in Arabic countries (but maybe it is all connected in some way?). To give them a chance to speak their minds, a two-week session in Tunis was organised during which nine female musicians from Egypt, Libya, Syria and Tunisia were joined by Olof and Oddisee to record a compilation called Sawtuha. Listen to effects below:
