West London born and raised singer-songwriter Alichè has engrossed herself in a world of Hip-hop, Soul, Jazz and R&B from a very young age. Using influences from all genres of music to form her own style and take. Writing about the day to day to important political issues and domestic situations, and using her voice to help and soothe.
She released promotional single “No Luv” back in September 2018 to a positive feedback fans. The London based singer-songwriter has already caught the attention of another artist Mahalia and DJ Booth’s editor-in-chief Brian “Z” Zisook who described her vocal as having a “nice texture and tone”.
After the positive reception to promotional debut single “No Luv”, Alichè returned with her brand new and official single “B.B.I”featuring rapper Fred Fredas. The captivating “B.B.I” combines R&B, soul and alternative hip-hop as Alichè’s compelling lyrics and flawless vocals float brilliantly over the Mykal Riley-produced track, resulting in a melodic anthem.
Fonzie is an up and coming rapper from West London who is currently unsigned.
So far in 2018 Fonzie has been putting his all into the music and generated over 150,000 streams independently over four songs, has had his first video of the year premiered on complex and was announced as one of the finalists of the MOBO Unsung competition.
Fonzie has a unique sound, that is simply incomparable to anyone else but a deep melodic sound that you keep wanting to hear more from.
Ultimately, he is looking to add a new dimension to the UK music scene and Fonzie works to explore and present different angles and perspectives through providing an imaginative edge to the tracks he delivers.
North London singer/songwriter Luv’Rell has been circulating the underground R&B scene for 5 years.
Kicking off her career with her top 10 iTunes R&B EP ‘Alpha Tauri’ (al-fa tor-eye), Luv has since graced international stages supporting acts from Stormzy to Dwele, and has explored a range of vibes from Reggae to Kizomba (which brought her first number in France!).
But she is best known for those nostalgic R&B vocals we love.
Where Dream-Pop and Bedroom Pop melt into memorable low-key vibes, songwriter PHILIP BROOKS thrives. The 21-year-old bleach-blonde layers soft mumbling vocals over atmospheric production.
With lyrics about the struggles of youthful romance and mental health, he hits home emotionally and nostalgically. “Will I remember it this time? I can't remember it. Well, fine.” he sings on “Honey Let's Just Drive”, coming to terms with the dream-like state that is his depersonalisation disorder.
You can feel how much thought Philip puts into his songwriting, every element of the music is meant to convey this feeling; the multi-instrumentalist solely creates all his music by himself. Receiving over 400.000 streams on his first two singles, lots of new music can be expected in 2019.
