Danny Brown + BbyMutha + Channel Tres + Shygirl
After releasing four studio albums and several mixtapes, Detroit native Danny Brown has gained international recognition as a maverick of US hip hop. Three years after the release of « Atrocity Exhibition », the gifted rapper is making a comeback with his new project « U Know What I’m Sayin’? ».
After making her mark in 2014 on New York producer LSDXOXO’s mixtape Whorecore, Brittnee Moore aka BbyMutha decided to fully embrace her rap career. Originally from Tennessee and the mother of two pairs of twins, she recently gained recognition in the New York underground hip hop scene with her EP « Flow Kit: Blk », where she evokes motherhood in the style of rap.
Among the likes of artists such as Kehlani and Shamir, the California native Channel Tres has found his own echoing the traditions of the Detroit and Chicago house. A newcomer to the American label Godmode, Channel Tres creates hypnotizing electro beats fusioned with West Coast rap – for eclectic clubbing hits.
Contrary to her stage name, Blane Muise’s music is far from shy. With radical instrumentation that combines grime, garage and industrial music, the southeast London singer/DJ distinguishes herself with captivating diction. Her first EP « Cruel Practice, » released in May 2018, has been a hit in the clubs of the British capital.
