Premiered over at DIY, Loyle Carner‘s first release of the new year comes from recordings made while on tour (not including his recent collaboration with fellow London emcee, Kate Tempest). Mufasa comes paired with some soft, yet raw, jazz influenced production from CoryaYo and serves to continue cementing Loyle as a force to be reckoned with.Also be sure to check out the video to the opening track off of last year’s A Little Late EP. Enjoy.
As with the music you’ll find on his A Little Late EP, Baby Grey displays how adept Loyle Carner is at bringing emotion out in his voice, in a way that you just don’t hear with emcees. The South Londoner’s newest release is a response to a nominee to this year’s Turner Prize. Enjoy.
I was asked by Tate Collective London to create a track in response to the Turner Prize 2014 nominated artist Tris Vonna-Michell at Tate Britain.
The exhibition finishes on the 4th of January, so head down soon!
Update: Now with video for closing track, Cantona.
Loyle Carner was last seen spitting some bars over Tom Misch‘s latest, thankfully, shortly after this he released his A Little Late EP. Sitting at six tracks long the EP is full of some of the best hip hop I’ve heard come out of the UK in some time. Loyle Carner is a name to remember. Enjoy.
While this is not the first time we’ve heard Tom Misch production paired with hip hop vocals, it is the first track in quite some time that those vocals have been original. Loyle Carner comes alongside Tom on Karma and then proceeds to slide smoothly all over the chilled, soulfilled beat that is made complete with Tom‘s own singing. I love everything about this. Enjoy.
