Every week, Music News and Liberty Music look at the best new releases from emerging and self-releasing artists.
Jaymie Deville – ‘Nowhere Fast’
Having already found praise from the likes of BBC 1Xtra and Time Out Dubai for his recent releases, Australian-born but Dubai-based singer and songwriter Jaymie Deville now makes yet another explosive return with his latest single ‘Nowhere Fast’. Taking his cues from the likes of The Weeknd and Jamie Woon, this smooth yet pulsing delight feels like it came straight out of the ‘Drive’ soundtrack.
Tropic – ‘Secret’
Comprised of RnB singer-songwriter Jo-B Sebastian and California-born producer and DJ Phuse, Brooklyn-based duo Tropic are quickly becoming one of the most talked about new acts of 2020, and now look to continue that form as they return with their latest jam ‘Secret’. With nostalgic yet forward-thinking aesthetic, the pair cook up a wonderfully bold and bouncing return, perfect for grooving under the summer sun.
With over fifty tracks already produced under their name, we still have no idea who UNSECRET is, but one thing for sure is they create incredible pop anthems and now return with their next, ‘Alive Again’. Working in collaboration with vocalist Chuck Adams, the pair deliver a wonderfully euphoric and anthemic new offering that adds even more mystery to the beatmaker at the helm.
Syren – ‘Syberia’
Having been grinding his way through London’s underground rap scene since 2018, 19-year-old MC Syren is now ready to bring his high-energy flow to the main arena as he unveils his debut single ‘Syberia’. Bringing the same fast and bouncing energy as Travis Scott, the rapper blends quickfire lyrics with pounding beats to create a truly engaging offering.
BARLI – ‘Sunday Best’
After first introducing herself to the world with her self-titled debut EP back in 2014, London-based artist BARLI has now returned with her latest collection ‘Someday All This Pain Will Be Useful’ alongside its lead single ‘Sunday Best’. Taking influence from sweeping acts such as Gil Scott Heron, she looks to create a sound that toes the line between ethereal trip-hop and brooding neo-soul, resulting in a wonderfully rich and textured affair.
