A dynamic playlist keeping up with the urban sounds of the UK Street culture.
The hit single of the fortnight:
"Come & Go," the potential hit on the debut album from Britain's most exciting newcomer ArrDee, as the Brighton white boy was featured in the first edition of our "UK Streets" playlist in early 2021 , even before he hit his first million streams.
The obscure track of the fortnight:
"GNG" (Guts N Grets), the enigmatic Manchester rapper machine guns a futuristic, weird and addictive beat.
3 highlights of the UK scene:
With the huge album of the star Central Cee and the first project of ArrDee, this first half of 2022 fills us with the new Digga D, "Noughty By Nature", first released with 16 tracks in the original version, then increased from the following week with 7 unreleased tunes and freestyles. Find the violent "A Lil Promo" on our playlist UK Streets.
After their EP "Summer We Never Had" in 2020 and too few singles since, the South London duo announces their comeback with "Mistaken" and its old-fashioned, anti-bling clip, filmed on the sunny sidewalks of the neighborhood in front of graffiti walls, with an analogue-like image grain, and fish-eye effects that reminds of the chill visuals of the 90s like Pharcyde or A Tribe Called Quest. Super fresh and super vintage at the same time.
Good vibe: do you know why Stormzy is the most adored rapper in the UK today? Surely because his spontaneity and his love for music remain pure and intact. As proof, the English host Dotty Charles (BBC, Apple Music) shared an Insta video at Coachella 2022 where Stormzy is in the crowd at his buddy Dave's concert, dancing with his drink in his hand, rapping the lyrics by heart, and feeling like a real fan. Stormzy wasn't invited to the festival, and he didn't even go on stage at Dave's concert. Just for fun.
