The Internet
The Internet
The Internet is a hip hop soul duo consisting of DJ, singer and producer Syd tha Kyd and producer Matt Martians of OFWGKTA.
Moonchild
"With only a couple of albums under their belt – 2012's Be Free and 2014's Please Rewind – horn/reed players Andris Mattson, Max Bryk, and Amber Navran of the jazz and soul trio Moonchild have built a considerable following among both the neo-soul-hungover crowd and traditional jazz lovers who don't mind the genre's evolution. For much of this, we have lead singer Amber Navran to thank, whose voice whistles and whooshes in and out of the band's soul claps, horn melodies, and synth shades. This is most evident on Please Rewind's "Don't Wake Me," "Just A Minute," and "Nobody," on which Navran's voice evokes Erykah Badu-esque charm, but with a vocal-defying soprano that's almost too cool for jazz and too controlled for soul. An arresting voice like hers knows no boundaries, and her bandmates Max and Andris create lush templates to adapt to any genre while still maintaining a jazz aesthetic. The end result is an infallible cross-breed of lush boom bap and soul power, aligning with Moonchild's orbit. It's no wonder artists like Stevie Wonder, Jill Scott, Robert Glasper, James Poyser, Jazzy Jeff, 9th Wonder, Giles Peterson, and Leela James have been singing their praises."

St. Beauty
St.Beauty is a duo made up of Alex Belle: lead vocals, and Isis Valentino: background vocals, guitar and bass player. Both originally from Atlanta, GA.
Alex Belle, played lead roles in musicals in high school, "Once On This island" and "Speak, I'm listening." Alex brings honest and personal lyrics dealing with relationship issues. Her melodies are haunting and linger in the melodic minor.
Isis Valentino, a member of the Wondaland Arts Society and a former dancer & background singer for Janelle Monae can be seen with St. Beauty lending her soothing vocals and delicate talents on guitar. Alex's lyrical melodies combined with Isis' chordal progressions and her minimalist approach to guitar and bass creates an overall soothing yet haunting blend of soul, folk, rock, and tribal music to the sound spectrum.
Little Simz
Born and raised in North London, the young wordsmith known as Little Simz brings a new level of intelligence, creativity and musicality to the global Hip Hop arena.

At just 20 years of age, nothing could have prepared Little Simz for her meteoric rise over the past year. Charismatic, fierce and lyrically mature, the rapper and musician caught the attention of JAY Z's Life + Times platform in 2013, seeing them premiere her FOURTH mixtape BLANK CANVAS and Simz catapulting into a whole new stratosphere. That recognition subsequently won her an invite to support Schoolboy Q on his Oxymoron tour and saw her tipped to become raps next great hope by Complex, High Snobiety, XXL, Variety, The Independent and The Guardian to name a few.

But even with a growing line of high-profile stars queuing up to collaborate and offers from many a major label, Little Simz decided to head back to her bedroom studio to follow the mixtape with her debut EP E.D.G.E and release it on her own label AGE 101 in the summer of 2014.

The critically acclaimed offering (an acronym for Every Day Gets Easier) which married entirely original soundscapes with Simz' stellar wordplay, flow and content, shunned easily accessible big name features and only featured her Space Age collective, a young clan of North London creatives who Simz grew up with.

After a whirlwind year, which also saw her release three instalments in her AGE 101: DROP Series of mini-EPs, Simz can now count Andre 3000, Snoop Dogg, J.Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Kano amongst many more as fans while her tracks continue to be spun by the likes of Zane Lowe, Gilles Peterson, Huw Stephens, Annie Mac, Mistajam and many more.

Recently winning the 'Breakthrough Act Of The Year' award at the highly respected 10th Annual Gilles Peterson Worldwide Awards and being nominated in two categories at the MOBO Awards (Best Hip Hop Act and Best Newcomer), where she also performed alongside veteran soul singer Candi Staton, all eyes are set on the young leader's next steps.
