This week we continue our latest feature on the Tipping Point, spotlighting the biggest and best emerging acts from across the UK. Each Monday, we ask one of our esteemed tippers to select five of their hottest tips to be featured on the site throughout the week.
Next up we have Georgie Mason-Reeves, label coordinator and product manager at Propeller Recordings as well as it’s sister labels – London based 0e0e and LA based Red Umbrella Records. She’s also part of the Propeller Management team, managing acts such as Seeb and a number of development artist projects. Check out Georgie’s tips below!
The London-based trio really pack some punch with their rap/metal/dub fusions, sounding somewhat like a mixture of Enter Shikari and Hacktivist with a Slowthai influence. The energy and heavy bass attracted me to the band, all of their tracks are super loud and in your face, and demand your attention.
I saw L Devine at TGE and her live set was one of the best of the weekend, the sound was faultless and her energy was fun and bubbly – the performance had the whole package. Her music is very bubble gum pop-esque but more heavily electronic with modern, dynamic lyrics and topics.
His music really stands head and shoulders above the rest in the grime/rap scene with production that’s full of layers and textures, and the most important thing for me is that he’s consistent in that the tracks he releases all have interesting production. With a strong trap element and bold, almost aggressive vocals, Littlez solo project deserves more than just to be heard in the grime scene.
The smooth, polished rock that Yonaka produce sounds like that of a band on the third album, rather than that of one who’s just released their debut album. With the added bonus of a refreshing female vocalist/front woman, their music is pure hooky rock and they will definitely be one to watch not just in the rock scene.
You can definitely hear the 90’s grunge influence in their sound, feeling reminiscent and angsty but without being any less heavy. It feels like a more mature take on the usual teenage heartbreak pop-punk, combined with grungey emo vibes.
