Discrete Brings the Sound of California to 2018

Discrete, a rapper, singer and producer raised in the Bay Area of Northern California, is gearing up for the biggest year of his musical career so far with the first sounds from his forthcoming album, ‘Let Me Remind You’ With a style which has fleshes of E-4, G-Eazy and Max Dre, Discrete is every bit the one-man-music-machine, having control over every element, from writing to producing. Already with seven mix tapes and two label released albums under his belt, and no signs of his prolific productivity waning, the thing which really makes Discrete stand out is that no two tracks sound the same – this is an artist who is constantly moving and continually evolving.

His latest single, Move Yo Body, is the kind of infectious summer anthem that is almost tailor-made to play with the windows of your car rolled down Lyrically Discrete has been compared to artists like Kanye West and Drake with real life story telling composed into a work of art. Written, recorded and mixed by Discrete himself, it showcases an ultra-confident artist at his most playful and slick.

His new CD entitled “Let Me Remind You” features the hit songs: Move Yo Body, Try This featuring Sage the Gemini and If I Went Broke, all of which are getting significant plays locally and online. Now ready to take on the world at large, Discrete, despite his name, is going to be hard to ignore in 2018.

After getting to number 1 on Zone Radio’s Top 40 Charts, Jake Aldridge returns with ‘Fireman’

Having gone to number 1 on Zone Radio’s Top 40 Charts, getting his track played on Play Boy TV daily and receiving airplay on Tom Robinson’s BBC Introducing Mixtape, Jake Aldridge returns with ‘Fireman’ featuring Lisa Ambrose. Fusing RnB and hip-hop, Aldridge tells the captivating story of losing the person you love, a theme he is all too familiar with after losing his own father at the age of 11.

When Jake was 11, his father passed away in a tragic accident, forcing him to later use music as a form of therapy. Unlike many musicians, music wasn’t in Jake’s blood but as he began to write, he discovered he was a confident lyricist and started to master rapping. Music became a positive way of expressing his emotions as well as offering others a form of comfort.

‘Fireman’ features the singer-songwriter Lisa Ambrose, who recently won Battle Of The Bandstands, hosted by BBC Radio 1’s Rob The Bank. This led to Ambrose supporting Mark Ronson and now collaborating with Jake Aldridge. Inspired by the likes of Tupac Shakur and Dr Dre, Jake believes his music is entirely honest and offers his fans an insight to his life and emotions. The song has been produced by Ninety II, an up and coming producer from Bristol.

‘Runaw’y’ by Pimlican

Collaborative solo artist Pimlican blends R&B, dance and pop to form ‘Runaw’y’, his latest single released via his own label, Belgrave Road Records. Strong song writing prowess combines with infectious hooks and complex beats, and it is this that has got Pimlican featured on Tom Robinson’s Radio 6 show, BBC Introducing and BBC Radio Leeds.

 

The inspiration for Pimlican came from spending many nights in Pimlico, waiting for appointments with people involved in the music industry.

There is also a unique ethos behind the group that sets them apart from the rest: the idea of the collective is to deliver unique live performances and therefore, anyone can get involved in Pimlican as long as they help evolve the live show and bring something new to the table.

After releasing the single ‘B’ck 4 More/P’lya’ in late May, Pimlican are set to release the addictive dance pop track ‘Runaw’y’ this January.

His new track ‘Skip The Talking’ fuses elements of soul, r&b, hip hop and pop, South London artist Unique Hastings’ sound is certainly unique.

The track was produced by Insanebeatz and it sounds great, so props to the producer.

Influenced by the golden era of hip hop, UK producer / rapper Zero Dinero comes through with this electrifying new EP The Time Has Come demonstrating some energetic flows, tight rhymes and some very impressive instrumentals.

Guest appearances include Kool Keith (aka Dr Octagon) and Blackalicous’s Gift of Gab, as well as famous scratch DJ, Sir BEANS OBE. The artwork and video meanwhile comes courtesy of Graham Dews (aka PARIS), the artist behind Coldplay’s Mylo Xyloto cover. An impressive coup for this Swindon debutant.

Stream the track ‘Be and Make’ from the EP below:

https://soundcloud.com/nil-cash/be-and-make/s-EPgdg

A multi-talented musician, Zero Dinero (who’s given name is Nilkesh Mehta) handles all his own production. As well as rapping alongside hip hop legends he also plays guitar, sitar, tablas (Indian percussion), harmonium (Indian Keyboard), and has experience as a hip-hop/ funk/ reggae DJ starting out aged only 14.

Embracing his Indian roots, Zero weaves elements of Eastern philosophy into his lyricism. Some of the themes include meditation, Yoga and reading philosophy – which are uniquely presented for the first time in a Hip hop context.

The rapper’s life has been one of many challenges. Between 1999 and 2000 he travelled the world teaching English to UNICEF kids and learning Spanish fluently, something that has helped him to have such a clear outlook on life. Following a degree in International relations and Law he found himself in a corporate environment, which never sat well with him. He also recently had a serious health scare battling early Testicular Cancer.

Having overcome all this, Zero Dinero is now ready to fully pursue his true calling and has devoted himself to the career in hip hop that he always wanted. Due to his Indian background, his parents thought he should keep music strictly as a ‘hobby’ when he was younger, rather than pursue it as a ‘profession’. The Time Has Come sees him finally overcoming obstacles and following his passions.

With such endorsements from Hip hop royalty; Zero Dinero’s unique eastern influenced debut release will truly add a new dimension to both the UK and global Hip Hop scenes.

 

The Time Has Come is out May 21st
