The Posted WRAP UP (October 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 October capping off and winter slowly but surely kicking in, the guys at UK Underground Rap have once again given us the chance to highlight a few of our favourite singles, EPs, albums that we’ve been bumping over the course of the past month.

For everyone in the scene right now things are super exciting. One of the most talked about artists of the year, PinkPantheress came out with her highly anticipated debut project ”to hell with it”, really pushing any of her doubters into the shadows. A month full of live music and gigs has kept us on our toes and we want to take a second to look back at some of the more underground music that's been released recently. After all they don’t call it UK Underground Rap for nothing!


Singles:

Rasharn Powell + Spoort - Never Call Home

Ruby Francis - Procrastinate

BXKS - Bones 2 Pick

Wax - Style

Namani + El Londo - OMG

Oscar Worldpeace + Ayrtn - YA!

Danitsa - SAY SOME


Wax - Style

A clear standout of October comes to us courtesy of Wax with his latest release “Style”. This being the Londoner’s 5th release so far in 2021, it’s clear Wax has simply gone from strength to strength while developing his own effortlessly smooth signature sound. Wax is in his element over this guitar led, @nilowaves instrumental, calmly laying down each line with an infectious charisma.



While it may be easy to get carried away with the groove of “Style”, Wax’s wordplay is definitely not to be ignored as he weaves simple yet intricate rhymes. At the same time, he's consistently providing light-hearted punchlines that are sure to put a smile on your face, including a thought provoking contribution to the Bounty debate. Hate it or love it, who knows? But we do know, Wax never disappoints!


EPs:

YT + CMilliano - TMilli

Finn Foxell - Alright Sunshine

Deyah - Exit the Dance

Bone Slim - Danse Macabre

Carrie Baxter - What Now

Dreya Mac - TWENTYONE


Finn Foxell - Alright Sunshine

With so many strong EPs having come out this month, it’s been difficult to put the spotlight on just one project, however, Finn Foxell’s latest release “Alright Sunshine” just can’t be ignored. The West London based artist will be a name many of you are familiar with by now, having long been regarded among the most exciting up & comers in the UK scene.
