It’s Friday! I am back with another instalment of #IMDiscovers.
This week I am showcasing talent from around the world.
New albums, new singles, and covers. IndustryMe has got you covered.
So without further ado…

Lemzi

An insanely versatile hip-hop artist from Leytonstone, London. Having been pursuing music full time since the summer of 2016, has spent countless hours perfecting his craft. His aim? To ensure his music has a message which is recognisable in the music.
His latest releases include “Autumnal Aura Live Sessions (1 Year Anniversary)” EP released 28th January 2018 and accompanied by a series of visulas, including:

If you are looking for a great flow, engaging content and music with a message Lemzi is the artist for you.

All To Myself – Mulherin

Shoutout to the TL for this one!
I came across this video on twitter and completely feel in love with the vibe and then eventually the harmonies. I don’t know what it is about these two but I am complexly drawn in.
Listen to the song here and let me know your thoughts

Ricardo Williams

Ricardo recently released a single titled ‘Come Over’ currently receiving plays on BBC radio and other major stations.
Smooth, yet urban style vocals over 90s influenced instrumentals and production. Those harmonies are bound to hit you in your soul and ooo that falsetto, real R&B is most definitely back.

Ants XI

Ants started the year strong with the release of his new Music Video on GRM Daily currently with over 7k views for his new single entitled ‘Nothing On You’
His sound is very versatile, exploring a smooth hip hop vibe as well as dabbling in the UK’s popular Afro Swing sound.

Leon Jacques

Leon has been quiet for a while but he has an upcoming project titled ‘NOMAD’ and is an artist to watch out for this year.
I look forward to hearing more of his killer vocals in the near future.

Nova Miller

Nova Miller is a singer that needs to introduction. Her music is always popping up on my feed with powerful vocals that are impossible to ignore.

Freya Alley – Stardust

After teaming up with songwriter Laurence Hobbs from Charthouse Music who has had multiple chart successes with the likes of Sam Smith and Pixie Lott, Freya Alley now releases her new single Stardust.

Justine – weekend remix

This was a great spin on what has definitely become a favourite of mine. The production work was great and her vocals were too. Her riffs really had me like , well damn girl!

Notty Taylor

With a sound reminiscent of elements of Future and Drake and some great production work behind him it is easy to why Notty Taylor is making a lot of noise on the underground circuit.

Rapping over a range of beats of many different styles. He is making waves and paving his own path with his unique style. Drawing from elements of trap hiphop and R&B Notty has created a sound that is completely his own.

you can find his newest record GetMeThru on Apple Music, Spotify and Tidal, as well as much much more on his Soundcloud. You can also keep up with him on any social media or music streaming app @NottyTaylor.

Maria Milis

Making her first splash into the Alternative Pop world through the release of her new concept EP, Maria Milis is now beginning to make huge inroads on the UK music scene.

Influenced by her Anglo-Greek roots, her EP titled Medusa is now available through all major download stores and has been described as having depth and mindfulness of a seasoned artist and songwriter.
Details on this along with further information on Maria Milis can be found on her website www.facebook.com/MariaMilisMusic or you can follow her on Twitter at www.twitter.com/mariamilism

You can listen to Maria Milis’s new single Medusa below:

Rolynné

Think of her as the vocal love child of India Arie and Chrisette Michelle.

Her song Changes is angelic honest and my go to whenever I am having a bad day. Her pure pristine vocals are bound to brighten up any day.

Kdeem – Stardust Cafe

Born in the South side of London, Kdeem started his musical journey in the ATL where he grew up as a young teenager. Forming together a music collective and releasing several EP’s independently, Kdeem offers a Lo-Fi Trap album produced by the Canadian producer Alphonse Funz. With this being the first instalment, the concepts and themes all flung together in these series of projects will have been influenced by memories and experiences dating all the way back to 2011 when he moved across the ocean.

I like to describe his sound as conscious trap with a clear 90s hip hop influence. With a sound that is a culmination of a variety of styles and influences he definitely stands out as an artist to watch for this year.
