52 Issue 77 / 2015 Album of The monTh KrepT & KonAn - The long WAy home The London duo has made history ones To WATch nATAlie DuncAn Natalie goes garage with the help of DJ Q Having garnered acclaim from publications such as Q Magazine and MOJO with her debut release Devil In Me, Natalie Duncan returns with a new EP Black and White. Having previously drawn comparisons to Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone and Radiohead, Natalie's sound has developed radically since the release of Devil in Me. Her latest material sees her experiment with new modes of songwriting, turning to heavy electronic manipulation of her vocals to create a more contemporary feel. With its stuttering trap-influenced rhythms and vocal processing, the DJ Q 'Oh My God' is most definitely contemporary. The DJ Q edit has a classic gatage feel but still sounds fresh and new, and on a hot summer's day, it's not too difficult to imagine this blaring out of the speakers at a DJ EZ festival set. Now, armed with a forward-thinking sound that demonstrates a growing sense of both maturity and talent, and with further new material in the pipeline, Natalie is only set to widen her legion of fans. A captivating live performer, she will bring her talents to the fore on 6th August at Cargo in Shoreditch for what promises to be a truly memorable night. More @ Sushi Asher Roth feat.

The LP has been a long time coming from the pair, and with fans so eager to get their hands on it, it's no wonder it skyrocketed up the charts. The album even topped the iTunes hip-hop chart back in March based on pre-orders alone. For them it's just another record though – their mixtape Young Kingz earned them a Guinness World Record for the highest charting UK album by an unsigned act when it hit no.19 in 2013.
