- Words Liam Cattermole
With less than a month to go until Cloud X Festival, we've selected 10Trax that we can't wait to hear at Beckenham Park this summer.
One of the capital’s best boutique festivals is back, and to celebrate, we’ve rounded up 10Trax from some of our favourite artists on this year’s line up. Taking place at Beckenham Park, 2023 promises to be Cloud X’s biggest and best event yet, spotlighting the capital’s next generation and global superstars like Saint Levant.
Empowering singer-songwriter BERWYN, poignant wordsmith cityboymoe and south London multihyphenate INFAMOUSIZAK will undoubtedly provide highlights. Likewise, playing cuts from her critically acclaimed debut album, ‘When Everything Is Better’, Pip Millett’s tranquilising tones will be a unifying moment on the afternoon of Sunday, August 20.
Just this week Cloud X Festival announced a partnership with MOBO Awards and Marshall Amps, who will be welcoming six inimitable new voices to the event. With more to be revealed, you can grab your tickets here.
“nw10” by cityboymoe
Sampling beabadoobee’s “the perfect pair”, “nw10” is London storyteller cityboymoe at his most poignant.
“Bulletproof” by BERWYN
Seeking resilience in the face of adversities, “Bulletproof” is a sombre anthem waiting to be sung by thousands at Cloud X Festival this summer.
“Sentah” by Mina, Bryte
Groovy, contagious and inherently danceable, this link up between Mina and Bryte proves each artist’s position at the forefront of global club music.
“Eating” by Scuti
Returning after her critically acclaimed debut EP, “Eating” shows Scuti’s expansive flows and ear for experimental sounds.
“PUBLIC ENEMY” by INFAMOUSIZAK
INFAMOUSIZAK can do it all. Nowhere is this more apparent than on “PUBLIC ENEMY”, where he builds on the blueprint of UK rap, tailoring the sound to make something completely new.
“Heavenly Mother” by Pip Millett
Pip Millett is as smooth and laid-back as ever on “Heavenly Mother”. We can’t wait for her to charm us all in Beckenham Park this summer.
“Lisbon” by Safiyyah
Calm and composed, “Lisbon” serenades its listeners with Safiyyah’s majestic vocal range and confessional lyricism.
“Bongo Jam” by Crazy Cousinz
A bona fide UK funky classic, “Bongo Jam” gets any rave two-stepping. The Latin percussion and catchy hook is pure dancefloor perfection.
“Lights Out” by Col3trane
Sultry R&B cut “Lights Out” is Col3trane at his most sedative. The dreamy production and tender lyricism will undoubtedly provide a festival highlight this August.
“Dust” by Kwaku Asante
The musicianship of Kwaku Asante is undeniable. “Dust”, with its palliative instrumentation, is a remedy-inducing R&B-soul inspired jam.
