The Posted WRAP UP (September 2021)

Updated: Nov 14, 2021

Here at UK Underground Rap, we're committed to connecting the scene in any way we can. That's why we've linked up with Posted UK to bring you a monthly round-up of underground music!
 

What a month it’s been! With September and sadly summer coming to an end the lovely people at UK Underground Rap have given us the chance to highlight a few of our favourite singles, eps, albums and everything in between that we’ve been listening to over the course of the past month.

Obviously to anyone with their ear to the ground, it’s been a huge month for new music. Little Simz returned with a strong contender for album of the year with “Sometimes I Might Be Introvert”, and taking a visit to our good pals in North America, we saw the long-awaited drop of “DONDA” and “Certified Lover Boy” by Kanye West and Drake respectively. But we want to draw a spotlight on a few artists a little bit closer to home that may not be on your radar just yet. After all, they don’t call it UK Underground Rap for nothing!


Singles:

Rachel Chinouriri - If Only

Danny Sanchez + Nikhil Beats - Duro

BXKS - Mean Amount

Feux + Xadi - Noctis

Yiiga + KiLLOWEN - UP

SOFY - Strawberry Milkshake

RADA - FWTG


SOFY - Strawberry Milkshake

The debut single “Strawberry Milkshake'' from SOFY has been a clear standout for us this month. SOFY is displaying a great deal of potential and joins the list of exciting musicians coming from the Leicester area. With acts such as Easy Life, Sainte and wewantwraiths all paving their own way in 2021, it’s clear that UK based talent is not just limited to London.



With this light-hearted indie-pop track, clear influences from elements of UK hip-hop shine through. A highlight of the track being SOFY’s innate ability to craftily weave together simple yet intricate rhymes and coupled with an incredibly high level of production makes for some grade a top tier easy listening. It’ll be very exciting to see what is in store for the 24-year-old singer-songwriter, who has only been making music for the past 12 months. SOFY is one to watch!


EPs:

Kwaku Asante - Blue Solstice: Volume 1

Venna - VENOLOGY

KeepVibesNear - Now That We Know

Hamzaa - Full Circle


KeepVibesNear - Now That We Know

Romford based Alternative R&B artist KeepVibesNear has long been on our radar, and with his latest release “Now That We Know.” it looks as if he’ll be there for quite some time. With this latest EP, KeepVibesNear strings together 3 brand new tracks to join a series of singles he’s released over the course of the year: “SRS”, “M25” (Feat. Kieron Boothe), and Gently (Feat. Evie Golding).
