May’s Emerging Artists.

Emerging UK music continues to permeate international audiences, particularly with the rise of Grime music.


This is reflected in my picks for the best upcoming artists this month…..

  • DonElito –  is clearly one of the hottest artists on the planet right now. His songs have been posted by the Queen of pop “Beyoncé” on an InstaVid. His latest offering “You Alright Yeah” follows universal banger ‘Balenciaga’ ft. Nado


  • Hardy Caprio – A thriving young rapper from London’s new music magic borough; “Croydon”. Hardy Caprio erupted onto the scene as an online lyricist, trending with a solid freestyle on Reprezant Radio.  He is continuing his ascendance with some great live shows including a sell-out gig at Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen.


  • SK Music – the 19-year old Nigerian singer/songwriter SK is back with new single ‘Ose’.  Born and raised in London, he broke into the afrobeat music scene in 2014 with a monumental single ‘Let’s Go There’. He followed this up with club shakers such as ‘Independent’ and popular ‘Mr. Man’.  Featuring prominent afro-beat producers we anticipate his next EP directly.


  • Elsa Chapman – an amazing soul singer/songwriter with amazing vocal talent,
    which she lends to her recent release “Get Me Up”. Her vibrant and giving stage presence means she is a great act to see up close.  We recommend a trip to Phoenix Artist club on a Tuesday where she hosts her own live night.


  • Tiana Major 9–  MOBO Unsung performer dropped her first official single on April 7 titled ‘Merry Go’ and what an absolute banger! The East Londoner started out at underground showcases, garnering a large and well-earned fan base.   Her experience grafting on this circuit really underpins her new release and we look forward to seeing her headline soon.
