Take a moment to let that sink in...</p> <p>Ok, you good?</p> <p>It's 2017 now and Kanye has gone on to be a creative visionary while 50 has declared bankruptcy and struggled to clock any hits, basically since his 2007 record <em>Curtis. </em> </p> <p>10 years ago though, 50 and Yeezy released their respective albums <em>Curtis </em>and <em>Graduation </em>on the same day, battling it out for the number one spot in the US.</p> <p>The feud was a proper hip-hop feud. It wasn't about personality, it was about music and they went head-to-head in the most literal of ways, even covering <em>Rolling Stone </em>together.</p> <p>It became even more of a serious battle when 50 declared to <em>RS </em>that he would stop declaring solo records if Kanye beat him.</p> <p>"When I picked that date, I was like, 'People are going to talk about this so much,'" Kanye said at the time about the battle.</p> <p>"Do you know how great this shit is for hip-hop?"</p> <p>He was confident that he was going to take out the spot too. His single <em>Stronger </em>was doing well while 50 had struggled to really get records off the ground that year. </p> <p>When the numbers came out, the inevitable happened. Kanye sold 960K while 50 trailed behind with 690K. Both huge numbers but Yeezy had come out on top. Looking back with hindsight now, <em>Graduation </em>has also had the longest lasting effect, introducing electronica into hip-hop and potentially changing the face of the genre forever. </p> <p>50 graciously lost saying, "This marks a great moment for hip-hop music, one that will go down in history.” Kanye on the other hand remarked, “To be a champion, you’ve got to take out a champion.”</p> <p>Needless to say, 50 didn't retire, although he never released an album again with first-week numbers that good so maybe he should've. </p> <p>Here's a bonus piece of info too, Kanye's favourite song on the record when it released was <em>Flashing Lights.</em></p> <p><em></em></p> <iframe allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" height="314" src="//www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/ila-hAUXR5U" width="560"></iframe><p></p> <p> </p> <p></p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-category-tier-1 field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Category Tier 1</div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/236" hreflang="en">Latest News</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags-tier-2 field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Tags Tier 2</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/336" hreflang="en">hip hop</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/471" hreflang="en">rap</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags-tier-3 field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Tags Tier 3</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/1161" hreflang="en">Kanye West</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/186" hreflang="en">50 cent</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-news-id field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">News id</div> <div class="field__item">81346</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-blog-thumbnail field--type-image field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Blog Thumbnail</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"> <img loading="lazy" src="/sites/g/files/g2000012951/files/files/50%25252520kanye__efde18e223e24d1c9d8963b635b48265fc2b8a71.jpg" width="879" height="451" alt="Kanye&#039;s &#039;Graduation&#039;

This week we take it back to the A-Z Of Underground-ish Hip Hop Jams that our very own Maccy originally put together for the lords over at <a href="http://pilerats.com/" target="_blank">Pilerats</a> last year...</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><em>2015. What a time to be alive eh?</em></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><em>Drake is at the top of the rap game and has got there by all memes necessary. Young Thug has found a way to monetize sentences that sound like Klingon. 50 Cent is now Zero Cent and can’t seem to keep his dollarmite account open for more than 12 minutes at a time. Jaden Smith has learnt how to time travel and is keeping us vaguely informed via his Twitter feed, and Fetty Wap’s album pretty much makes up the entire Billboard chart top 10.</em></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><em>Things certainly aren’t as simple as they used to be that’s for sure, so join me as I disappear up my own arse and go digging in the crates alphabetically to uncover some of my fave underground-ish rap tracks for my - and hopefully your - listening enjoyment.</em></p> <p><br /></p> <iframe allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" frameborder="0" height="550" src="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/videoseries?list=PLo7aGI-hG3B94NhRUVnD5c6_C3U_yVXwJ" width="600"></iframe> <p> </p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">A</span> IS FOR Aboriginals Feat. Abyss - <em>Try These</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">Proper little head nodder taken from one of the best underground hip hop compilations of all-time - <em>Heavy Loungin’</em>. </p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">B</span> IS FOR Brassmunk - <em>One, 2</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">Brassmunk are guaranteed to keep your head noddin’ with good ol’ fashioned boom bap biz. One of the lesser known crews on Canadian label Battle Axe Records.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">C</span> IS FOR Champions of Nature - <em>Salsa Smurf</em> </strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">Killer posse cut from the short-lived supergroup that was made up of some of the UK’s finest rhyme writers including Jehst &amp; Lewis Parker. I love the fact that the track just fades out which leads me to believe that they’re all still spittin’ bars in a cypher somewhere…</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">D</span> IS FOR Declaime Feat. Evidence, Lootpack &amp; Sauna - <em>Trouble n Da West</em> (Who's Crew?)</strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">An early MADLIB INVAZION! featuring some of the da best in da west (including Dilated People’s Evidence) at the start of their careers.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">E</span> IS FOR Edan - <em>Syllable Practice</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">The Humble Magnificent is easily one of my favourite emcees and someone who really needs to make a comeback ASAP, I wanted <em>Run That Shit</em> as my track selection but YouTube let me down.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">F</span> IS FOR Frankenstein - <em>The Projects</em> (Remix)</strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">Damn. I’m just listening through this playlist writing these bits and I’m pretty sure I’ve snapped a tendon in my neck. More boom bap straight outta Canada.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">G</span> IS FOR Grav Feat. Al' Tariq &amp; Lil Ray - <em>City To City</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">Fun Fact: This joint is produced by some dude called Kanye West and this, and a couple of other jams on Grav’s <em>Down To Earth</em> album, were his first official appearances as both a producer and rapper. </p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">H</span> IS FOR Homeboy Sandman - <em>Whatchu Want From Me?</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">One of the more recent selections as part of this A-Z and definitely one the most refreshing cats to come through the scene in the last decade. Leave it up to the good folks at Stones Throw to uncover him. </p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">I</span> IS FOR Ill Brothers – <em>Funkneck</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">Just bare boned hip hop at its best… A simple beat loaded to the hilt with witty wordplay is all you need sometimes. </p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">J</span> IS FOR Jigmastas Feat. Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monch, Shabaam Sahdeeq &amp; Mr. Complex - <em>Lyrical Fluctuation 2000</em> (Spinna Remix) </strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">Whoa. This is like the rap posse cut equivalent of the 1992 USA men’s basketball team i.e. THE DREAM TEAM.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">K</span> IS FOR Karl Hinds - <em>Don Gramma</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">The British answer to Big L’s Ebonics. UK street slang broken down and served up by the don – Karl Hinds over another neck-snapping beat reminiscent of Roots Manuva’s <em>Witness</em> which dropped the same year (2001).</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">L</span> IS FOR L.A. Symphony - <em>Broken Tape Decks</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">“See this is the song that makes your girlfriend dance” - West coast wickedness from Pigeon John &amp; Co. That sleigh bell tho.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">M</span> IS FOR Mighty Casey - <em>Liquorland 2</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">There’s not a lot to not love about this Mighty Casey cat… Booze-fuelled raps over a flip of The Cure’s <em>The Lovecats</em>. </p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">N</span> IS FOR The Nonce – <em>Mixtapes</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">Underground west coast classic from ’95 that made enough noise for Rick Rubin to sign the LA crew to his Wild West/American Recordings label.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">O</span> IS FOR One.Be.Lo - <em>Unparalleled</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">Aka onemanarmy of Binary Star, One.Be.Lo just wanted to see some elevation in hip hop, and hands in the air with his no nonsense “no gimmicks” brand of rap. 10 years later and my hands are still up.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">P</span> IS FOR Present Tense - <em>Ruffem'up</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">OK. So this track is so underground it didn’t even exist online so I did the dodgy and ripped it off the OG CD-R that I had of this Canberra duo (later trio)’s <em>Presentation</em> CD and uploaded it to the ‘Tube. This is the only Australian cut that made the list and I still love how raw, dope and perfectly ocker it is.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Q</span> IS FOR Quasimoto - <em>Basic Instinct</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">Madlib is/was such a prolific producer/emcee but it’s never got better than his alter-ego Quasimoto, in particular 2000’s <em>The Unseen</em>… An absolutely flawless album that’s right up there with my all-time faves, and that’s coming from me, someone who doesn’t smoke weed very often so I can’t even begin to imagine how incredible and essential this record would be to a regular stoner.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">R</span> IS FOR Rasco &amp; Planet Asia - <em>Take It Back Home</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">Back to back Stones Throw releases! To be fair there really should be more of their releases on this list but I like that I’ve spread the love. The break in this joint is such a killer and I was stoked when I found the source on Billy Preston &amp; Syreeta’s <em>Fast Break</em> soundtrack in an op shop.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">S</span> IS FOR Skitzofreniks - <em>Slow It Down</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">Boston represent! Another one that follows the formula of a head noddin’ beat coupled with wordplay and punch line rhymes and again the result is A++.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">T</span> IS FOR Ty - <em>We Don't Care</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">Yet another bangin’ UK jam. Now’s probably a good time to send a shout-out in the direction of one of my best mates Merrick who intro’d me to British hip hop by way of a great mixtape back in 1999. CUTE STORY BRO.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">U</span> IS FOR The Unspoken Heard - <em>Jamboree</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">Asheru and Blue Black AKA The Unspoken Heard come through with the posi-feel-good-vibes of <em>Jamboree</em>. Try not tapping your feet or doing some weird little shimmy to this, I dare you.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">V</span> IS FOR Von Pea - <em>Good Life</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">Von Pea has one of my fave voices in hip hop, it sort of sounds like he’s got a really bad head cold. It’s not for everyone so I’ll hit you with a 1:30 track and if you dig it go check his solo stuff as well as his group Tanya Morgan.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">W</span> IS FOR Wee Bee Foolish - <em>Whatcha Need</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">Channelling some serious native tongues vibes (even down to the great A Tribe Called Quest sample in the hook), Wee Bee Foolish released a couple of great records but then like most underground hip hop slowly disappeared from the scene.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">X</span> IS FOR X-ecutioners Feat. DJ Premier - <em>Premier's X-ecution</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">OK, so it was either Xzibit or these guys and I felt the X-ecutioners were slightly more underground… OK so Premo is on board too, but would a hip hop playlist really be a hip hop playlist if there was no appearance from DJ Premier?</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Y</span> IS FOR Y Society - <em>Don't Do It</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;">I was going to say this is another recent cut but then I realised it’s already 5 years old… yikes!

It seems like it’s basically taking a stab in the dark but for the most part they have been right. In the past they have tipped Adele, Ellie Goulding, Sam Smith and 50 Cent with each of them nabbing the prize. Last year they put their money on Years &amp; Years, James Bay and Stormzy each of which have gone onto have great success in very different ways.</span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">This year 144 people have voted on a shortlist of 15 which will be whittled down to five by early January. In an effort to stay even further ahead of those ahead of the curve we’ve placed all of them up against each other as if it was a sport to determine who we think we’ll take home the prize.</span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Let the battle begin!</span></p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;"><img alt="" src="/sites/g/files/g2000010276/files/5661280241c9a.png" /></span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">ROUND 1</span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><strong><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Jack Garratt vs. Frances</span></strong></p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">This is the battle of the artists you’re most likely to give to your Mum for mothers day. Jack Garratt is a British multi-instrumentalist poised to be the next Ed Sheeran while Frances is a less bellowing Adele. Neither of these two are really bringing much new to the table but you’ve got to hand it to Garratt for at least delivering a phenomenal live show. His performance on Conan a few months back was impressive and is sure to incite plenty of “oohs” and “aahs” once the festival season rolls around. As for Frances, even a new single co-written by Disclosure’s Howard Lawrence </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; font-style: italic; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Borrowed Time</span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;"> couldn’t liven her up. </span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"> <iframe height="350" src="//www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/H6bjwDFk8mo" width="425"></iframe></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"> <iframe height="350" src="//www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/_Hw3h9cAIFk" width="425"></iframe></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">WINNER: <strong>Jack Garratt</strong></span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><strong><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Dua Lipa vs. Mabel</span></strong></p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Mabel is actually the daughter of Neneh Cherry so she already has a formidable mentor at hand even though their styles are polar opposites. Mabel is making minimal, spacious R&amp;B driven by a beautifully smooth voice like on her current single </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; font-style: italic; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">My Boy My Town</span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">. Dripping in Palace and Adidas threads, she’s also likely to become a style icon for those reading things like i-D. On the other side of the ring we have another cool cat - Dua Lipa. She was originally picked up by Lana Del Rey’s management and is making gloriously euphoric pop music the best example being her most current single </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; font-style: italic; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Be The One. </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">She’s got an Instagram-ready aesthetic and also looks like the kind of girl you’d like to get giggly with after a few drinks. Both these girls are uber-cool but it’s hard to go past Lipa’s tunes. She’s bound to find a home in the charts over the next few months but may also win over the alt-snobs.</span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"> <iframe height="350" src="//www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/-rey3m8SWQI" width="425"></iframe></p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"> <iframe height="350" src="//www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/7X21ynBma6M" width="425"></iframe></p> <p><br /><span style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 14.6666669845581px; line-height: 20.2399997711182px;">WINNER: </span><strong style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 14.6666669845581px; line-height: 20.2399997711182px;">Dua Lipa</strong></p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><strong><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">J HUS vs. Section Boyz</span></strong></p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">It’s not a surprise that there are two grime acts featured in this year’s list given that it was much talked about in 2015 thanks to Skepta and Stormzy. Stormzy placed at third in last year’s list and it’s possible that both these artists could place. Statford rapper J Hus is the one most likely to do a Dizzee Rascal or Wiley and cross over into the mainstream while six piece group Section Boyz are the most likely to impress the critics. The latters 2015 record </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; font-style: italic; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Don’t Panic</span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;"> was one of the best grime records of the year. Meanwhile, J Hus delivered Dem Boy Paigan combining African styles with Fetty Wap-inspired hooks. It’s a tough call but the public has not always been receptive to rap collectives. Given that J Hus is making music more skewed towards the commercial side, he’ll be the one to rise to the top here.</span></p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"> <iframe height="350" src="//www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/nhMlrlqchog" width="425"></iframe></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"> <iframe height="350" src="//www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/nISWPU50HLc" width="425"></iframe></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 14.6666669845581px; line-height: 20.2399997711182px;">WINNER: <strong>J Hus</strong></span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><strong><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">WSTRN vs. Loyle Carner</span></strong></p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">This is an interesting and different pair-up. Loyle Carner is a London rapper with a big social and political conscience while WSTRN are a London rap collective making radio-ready rap tunes. Loyle Carner is most likely to be the UK’s answer to Kendrick Lamar, rapping over funk and jazz-infused beats with a heavy message to deliver. He’s actually already gained the respect of Lamar who’s also a fan of Brit rapper Little Simz who has a similar style to Carner. WSTRN on the other hand already have a hit on their hands with </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; font-style: italic; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">In2 </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">finding a space currently occupied by acts like R City and Krept and Konan. They’re charismatic guys that can rap and sing all while finding delicious melodies. The BBC always pick those on the edge of huge radio success so as good as Carner is, it’s hard to imagine him beating WSTRN. </span></p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"> <iframe height="350" src="//www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/0-hy92f00EE" width="425"></iframe></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"> <iframe height="350" src="//www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/93L21DksCFk" width="425"></iframe></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 14.6666669845581px; line-height: 20.2399997711182px;">WINNER: <strong>WSTRN</strong></span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><strong><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Blossoms vs. Rat Boy</span></strong></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Battle of the guitars. These are the only two acts on the list that can even be vaguely linked to British rock ‘n roll. Manchester guitar band Blossoms are making psych-rock tunes with melodies that could easily find a home on Radio 1 in the UK. They don’t have the frenetic energy of the Arctic Monkeys but they definitely have a sort of Humbug vibe to them. Speaking of frenetic energy, Rat Boy might be the most energetic of the whole bunch. He’s combining The Streets-esque rap with Sex Pistols punk and destroying the joint on his way through. He’s a brat and he’s incredibly likeable, poised to inspire a whole generation of weed-smoking punks. If you listen to all fifteen of these acts, you’ll probably remember Rat Boy.</span></p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"> <iframe height="350" src="//www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/nysHXGCracM" width="425"></iframe></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"> <iframe height="350" src="//www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/tXBc0c4sj_I" width="425"></iframe></p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><br /><span style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 14.6666669845581px; line-height: 20.2399997711182px;">WINNER: <strong>Rat Boy</strong></span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><strong><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Izzy Bizu vs. Nao</span></strong><br class="kix-line-break" /><br />  </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Izzy Bizu and Nao are the two soul queens of the bunch. Bizu is channeling that Corinne Bailey Rae-style soul while still allowing house beats to creep into her songs. She’s shortlisted for a Brit Critics Choice Award (which has previously been won by Sam Smith and Adele) but it doesn’t feel like she’s quite found her number one single yet. Her voice is distinctive and rich but maybe it hasn’t found the right vessel yet. Nao’s, on the other hand, doesn’t feel like it wants to be number one. She’s already a critics darling with Pitchfork gushing over her and she was the best part of Disclosure’s </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; font-style: italic; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Caracal</span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;"> record.

British folk singer Billie Marten is only 16 years-old and she’s making music that puts her in the league of singers like Birdy and Gabrielle Alpin.

Australian festivals and promoters would be foolish for not booking this guy right now - he’s about the blow-up. </span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"> <iframe height="350" src="//www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/fyv5CBCnx6Q" width="425"></iframe></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">ROUND 2</span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><strong><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Dua Lipa vs. Jack Garratt </span></strong></p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Both these guys are likely to have a hit next year in the UK at least. Lipa is likely to become the girl everyone wants to be once she starts gracing magazine spreads while Garratt will be the go-to for people going to festivals looking for the more accessible acts. If we put Garratt’s latest track </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; font-style: italic; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Breathe Life </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">up against Lipa’s </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; font-style: italic; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Be The One, </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">it’s pretty obvious which one has more personality. Lipa’s is cool, fresh and energetic while Garratt’s feels like something we’ve heard too many times before. There’s every chance Garratt’s inoffensiveness will carry him to victory but we’ve got to stand with Lipa on this one, lest we spend 2016 asleep. </span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">WINNER: <strong>Dua Lipa</strong></span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><strong><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Rat Boy vs. Nao</span></strong></p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">You couldn’t get two more different artists if you tried. These two will probably never even come close to sharing a stage together and that’s ok. Both are unlikely to nab a top 10 hit in the next six months but if it’s going to be anybody it will be Nao. Nao’s aesthetic is far more inline with what we’re seeing at the moment all around the globe while her desire to push the boundaries just a tad instrumentally makes all her tracks really interesting. Rat Boy could easily become a cult hero in the UK but we can’t see him changing the face of music in 2016. </span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">WINNER: <strong>Nao</strong></span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><strong><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">J Hus vs. WSTRN</span></strong></p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">This is a fair contest. Both artists have a really good shot at shaping the sound of UK rap music in 2016. J Hus sits more on the rap-side but has just enough of a US influence to crossover if he wanted too while WSTRN could easily bag a worldwide hit with </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; font-style: italic; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">In2. </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">J Hus will excited festival audiences more than WSTRN will but there’s something really infectious about WSTRN and they’re not very geographically-defined by sound. Whether you like it or not you won’t be able to escape </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; font-style: italic; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">In2 </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">this summer in Australia.</span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">WINNER: <strong>WSTRN</strong></span></p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><br /><br /><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;"><strong>Alessia Cara vs. Mura Masa</strong></span></p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Here’s we’ve got two young guns doing very different things. Mura Masa is the type of artist who will become a poster boy for triple j electronic audiences like Cashmere Cat or Lido while Alessia Cara could become a commercial superstar. Mura Masa could actually really work with Cara’s voice and develop something really sonically interesting. Her album lacked the same effortless cool as her hit </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; font-style: italic; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Here </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">and maybe that will stunt her growth this year. Meanwhile, Mura Masa has put out an excellent EP in </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; font-style: italic; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Someday Somewhere </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">and will probably release the “cool,” genre-shifting album of 2016. Pop acts should jump on the young producer like Ariana Grande did with Cashmere Cat - he’s proved he works really well with vocalists and could be sitting on a goldmine</span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">WINNER: <strong>Mura Masa</strong></span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">ROUND 3</span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><strong><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Dua Lipa vs. WSTRN</span></strong></p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">These two are both destined to hit the charts in a big way next year. WSTRN already have </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; font-style: italic; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">In2 </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">which will continue to spread around the world over the next few months while Lipa has </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; font-style: italic; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Be The One </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">which will surely catch on as more and more tastemakers list her as one of the ones to watch in 2016. Lipa, however, has the upper-hand because she’s a solo act. Her effortless cool should mean people latch onto her as someone they want to hang out with/be because she’s a little bit alternative but not so much that she’s unable to crossover. If Lana Del Rey has proved anything, it’s that occasionally the mainstream is ready for something a little less glossy that what they’re used to. Lipa’s tunes are more accessible than Del Rey but you get the feeling she won’t be hopping in the studio with Max Martin anytime soon.</span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">WINNER: <strong>Dua Lipa</strong></span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><strong><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Mura Masa vs. Nao</span></strong></p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Mura Masa and Nao both worked with each other on the track </span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; font-style: italic; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Firefly</span><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;"> which was brilliant so it’s pretty hard to put them up against each other and it would be nice if they could both win. Nao is going to have a great 2016 off the back of a debut album. Everything she’s put out so far has been impressive and she’s already a critical darling. Mura Masa is going into 2016 on the same level but his potential to grow into the mainstream is bigger than Nao’s. Annie Mac at Radio 1 is pushing Mura Masa hard while Diplo says he is “destroying the internet.” In electronic music particularly, each year you need someone who’s going to push the sound forward and Mura Masa is the man to do that. Nobody's making music as luscious and enthralling as he is right now. </span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">WINNER: <strong>Mura Masa</strong></span></p> <p><br /><br />  </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">ROUND 4</span></p> <p> </p> <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><strong><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">Dua Lipa vs. Mura Masa</span></strong></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">As good as Mura Masa is it’s hard to imagine the BBC choosing him to take home the prize. This is an award that’s been won by 50 Cent, Ellie Goulding and Adele - they want their bragging rights at the end of the year when the act sells a heap of records. Dua Lipa only has two songs and the BBC usually want to jump on somebody without much material behind them. They did it with HAIM, Years &amp; Years and even Jessie J (God forbid). Lipa has the potential to have a really triumphant trajectory this year. As word catches on you’ll hear that she’s working with cool people and you can see her giving some upbeat, euphoric festival performances. From what we’ve seen so far she also looks like she’s got the personality to make people fall in love with her. If the BBC don’t choose to give the prize to an inoffensive white male, the prize will be Lipa’s.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-size: 14.6666666666667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;"><span style="font-size: 14.6666669845581px; line-height: 20.2399997711182px;">WINNER: </span><strong style="font-size: 14.6666669845581px; line-height: 20.2399997711182px;">Dua Lipa!!</strong></span></p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-size: 14.6667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap; background-color: transparent;"><span style="color: #222222; font-size: 14.6667px; line-height: 20.24px;">- Words and pictures by </span><a href="http://theinterns.net/" style="box-sizing: inherit; color: #2cd680; line-height: 20.24px; text-decoration: none; font-size: 14.6667px;">the interns</a><span style="color: #222222; font-size: 14.6667px; line-height: 20.24px;">' Sam Murphy and Bianca Bosso for Cool Accidents</span></span></p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p></p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-category-tier-1 field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Category Tier 1</div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/236" hreflang="en">Latest News</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags-tier-2 field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Tags Tier 2</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/241" hreflang="en">pop</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/521" hreflang="en">indie</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/541" hreflang="en">rock</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/1016" hreflang="en">edm</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/336" hreflang="en">hip hop</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags-tier-3 field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Tags Tier 3</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/401" hreflang="en">dua lipa</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/9881" hreflang="en">mura masa</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/12366" hreflang="en">wstrn</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/10881" hreflang="en">mabel</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/13271" hreflang="en">nao</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/13276" hreflang="en">jack garratt</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/13281" hreflang="en">frances</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/13286" hreflang="en">blossums</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/12406" hreflang="en">izzy bizu</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/13291" hreflang="en">section boyz</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/5366" hreflang="en">adele</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/10856" hreflang="en">ellie goulding</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/2526" hreflang="en">stormzy</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/4771" hreflang="en">sam smith</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/186" hreflang="en">50 cent</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-news-id field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">News id</div> <div class="field__item">75161</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-blog-thumbnail field--type-image field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Blog Thumbnail</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"> <img loading="lazy" src="/sites/g/files/g2000012951/files/files/56612b69e4014.png" width="1221" height="749" alt="The BBC Sound of 2016 Open" title="The BBC Sound of 2016 Open" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-slug-url field--type-string-long field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Slug URL</div> <div class="field__item">the-bbc-sound-of-2016-open</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-show-in-home-news-block- field--type-boolean field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Show in home news block?</div> <div class="field__item">Off</div> </div> Fri, 04 Dec 2015 05:58:57 +0000 Site Factory admin 146161 at https://www.coolaccidents.com
