*5 songs you may not be up on but should definitely listen to*
Jones by Nafets - this laid back, upbeat, west coast style track has a really infectious quality and sounds so smooth with some really nice keys and natural sounding vocals. For an artist who “failed at acting now is stuck here rapping”, it sounds pretty good.
Yuca by Warner Meadows - this is a simple track, but done right. A catchy hook, nice tune and although it's rather minimalistic it's nicely produced, making it really easy to listen to
Hands Up by Demrick -This is one of my favourite tracks at the moment, I'm in love with the beat, it's such a nice sample, and really well crafted. Demrick’s flow is on point for his verse on this song, and it has a really epic quality like it should be the song rolling at the end of a movie. It’s quite a short one, but that only leaves you wanting more.
On A Wave by Kyle Korum - Kyle Korum having just over 20,000 monthly listeners makes him scoring a Mick Jenkins feature all the more impressive, but I understand how he got it. This song sounds like it could easily have been made by a massive triple A artist. the beat and tune are simple and don't feature much variation but are intertwined in such an effortless way that the song flows like it's 'on a wave’. Kompany by Monte Booker - ignoring this being a disappointment in the fact it's not a btec version of Thiago Silva by Dave and has nothing to do with the Belgian defender of the same name, this song sounds like it was made just for a Smino feature - the kind of offbeat shuffling beat that compliments his unique vocals of a similar quality, the silky harmonies. The lyrics feel a little bit repetitive towards the end but it's short enough that it doesn't get boring.
So, these are 5 of my favourite non-mainstream tracks at the moment, which of these is your favourite? Any recommendations of lesser known songs/artists you think more people should know about?
