Undiscovered is a weekly playlist sharing our pick of the best new music from the world's most exciting emerging musicians. You heard it here first.
"LOOP" by Theodor Black
South East London artist Theodor Black gives slick bars over a hazy production on this new tune. “The song is about being stuck in the same place and not moving forwards, repetitive behavioural patterns that often tend to be self-destructive or counterproductive", he said.
"Big Trees" by Leith
Radio 1 Future Artist Leith has shared a nostalgic ode to her homelife in Toronto. Now based in London, Leith has also set up her own label, Big Trees. She says the new single is about "a place my family built and somewhere we all go back to together. It’s a love letter to where I grew up and my family. It’s like a secret only we know about, it’s safe.”
"Bloodshed" by Areej
Newcomer Areej shares her sophomore single "Bloodshed", a decisive blend of raw soul and jazz influences that transports you immediately into her sonic world.
"Guessing Games" by Toby Corton
For fans of Joesef, Joy Crookes and Amy Winehouse comes Toby Corton, an East London creative previously known for his photography and directing work. Now he's stepping out with his own delicious jazz-pop music.
"Come Through" by Anansi
London-raised Afro-Latin artist, Anansi, has dropped this energetic fusion of Baile Funk and UK drill; a fusion of UK and South American sounds that the artist is paving the way in.
"KitKat" by Scuti
New single “KitKat” wanders hypnotically through meditative eastern sampling and razor edged beats, with the instrumental dropping out at key moments, paving way for Scuti’s bars.
"Push On" by House of EL
Northampton based artist House of EL (aka Kieron McIntosh) drops his second single of the year, "Push On", ahead of his January mixtape ‘Book of EL’. He said: “Black people are the most resilient people on earth!... we have had to be...This song is a message that says no what you’re going through keep going and never quit and I hope that comes across no matter who listens".
"Postscript" by These Brittle Bones
These Brittle Bones is back with a new sound, marked by the release of the single "Postscript": ambient music, but not as we know it.
