untitled

 

‘TLC’ is taken from Humor’s forthcoming project ‘XLCR’ it’s a self-produced EP with

squelchy synths and punchy 808s and Humor’s energetic personality really shines through.

Check out ‘TLC’ below:

His beats draw from a diverse palette of grime hip-hop, deep/tech house, electronica and 90s R&B. Inspired to produce his own instrumentals after struggling to afford decent beats, he has since honed his craft into a creative and polished sound.

 

Humor’s single ‘I Told You’ from his first project was previously chosen by Tom Robinson for a BBC Introducing Mixtape on Radio 6, ‘XLCR’ is a strong project, lets hope he can do even better and gain more fans with this project.

A multi-talented musician, Zero Dinero (who’s given name is Nilkesh Mehta) handles all his own production. As well as rapping alongside hip hop legends he also plays guitar, sitar, tablas (Indian percussion), harmonium (Indian Keyboard), and has experience as a hip-hop/ funk/ reggae DJ starting out aged only 14.

Embracing his Indian roots, Zero weaves elements of Eastern philosophy into his lyricism. Some of the themes include meditation, Yoga and reading philosophy – which are uniquely presented for the first time in a Hip hop context.

The rapper’s life has been one of many challenges. Between 1999 and 2000 he travelled the world teaching English to UNICEF kids and learning Spanish fluently, something that has helped him to have such a clear outlook on life. Following a degree in International relations and Law he found himself in a corporate environment, which never sat well with him. He also recently had a serious health scare battling early Testicular Cancer.

Having overcome all this, Zero Dinero is now ready to fully pursue his true calling and has devoted himself to the career in hip hop that he always wanted. Due to his Indian background, his parents thought he should keep music strictly as a ‘hobby’ when he was younger, rather than pursue it as a ‘profession’. The Time Has Come sees him finally overcoming obstacles and following his passions.

With such endorsements from Hip hop royalty; Zero Dinero’s unique eastern influenced debut release will truly add a new dimension to both the UK and global Hip Hop scenes.

 

The Time Has Come is out May 21st

Bobstar’s Afrobeat Single Out Soon

Bobstar is an exciting new artist who has managed to cultivate a unique sound of his own based on a fusion of Afrobeat, bashment and grime. His double A side release “Loving Last Night”/ “Blame On Me” will most definitely drive its listeners to the dancefloor. Bobstar’s an upcoming artist with the potential to shake up the club scenes of England and beyond by demonstrating mastery in the creation of urban music as epitomised in the track “Loving Last Night”

Bobstar has collaborated with Afrobeat artists such as Ace and producers such as Rolio D and Rare G. The multifaceted nature of his songs derives from both his ethnical background as well as his extensive interest in different kinds of music.

Robert Gabriel Okoro AKA Bobstar has been passionate about playing music from an early age. Being brought up both in Nigeria and South London has contributed to the fact that his musical approach is thriving from a variety of different cultural impacts – his style has developed from genres that range from Reggae, Hip Hop, Afro House and Jazz to Pop. Bobstar has been soaking up musical inspiration from the likes of Shabba Ranks, Elton John, Fela Kuti and Bob Marley amongst others. With his songs being primarily Hip Hop based Bobstar’s music is comparable to the work of Future and Mavado.

His musical ambitions range from song writing to performing as well as producing, a skill he acquired over the years from owning his own recording studio.

Release date for “Loving Last Night”/ “Blame On Me” is 8th January 2016

Rapper Lively is here with new single ‘Bad Influence’

Lively is a rapper who has entered the hip hop arena in the most proficient way being able to collaborate with some big names in the industry at this point of his career.

Taking his father’s  second cancer diagnosis in 2012 as a wake-up call the rapper has decided to truly devote himself to his music  which has paid off only very shortly afterwards. A trip to the US last year gave him the opportunity to record with one of the most influential hip hop producers of the past 20 years, Scott Storch who is widely known for having produced hit records for Beyonce, 50 Cent, Eminem, Busta Rhymes , Rick Ross, Chris Brown and Tyga amongst others. Next to Storch the rapper has worked with UK rapper Smiler TPM as well as MAC and G-Man of So Solid Crew and also Bizarre from the Detroit based rap group D-12. His first single release ‘Bad Influence’, is a solid proof for his quickly acquired professionalism.

The song is a testament to his way of life, affirming that he’s “moving in the fast lane, no slow ride.” No matter if people believe he’s a “bad influence on them”, Lively is bursting with determination and energy and there’s no going back.IMG_0473

Having built a foundation consisting of musical talent, dedication and hard work Lively has managed to get his first EP release in April 2015 into the best selling rap/ hip hop pre-orders on itunes without the help of any labels or major promotion.

His musical influences vary across the hip hop sphere as well as any other genres he comes across. Lively isn’t interested in copying other artists, he takes his inspiration mainly from everyday life experiences and his own imagination. The rapper, who has both Scottish and Indian roots, has shown perseverance in the ambition to mature his sound and an eagerness to learn from past mistakes. He took part in a rap battle at Jumpoff TV where he, in his own words, “failed epically” and got beaten by another contestant, who got into the season’s finals. But Lively decided to use his defeat in a positive way, cleaned up his act and is now back stronger than before: “The loss made me go back to the drawing board quite literally – new style, new sound, better punch lines.”  With an attitude like this there’s no doubt Lively will be here to stay for some time to come.

The single ‘Bad Influence’ is out on 13th February 2016.
