36 Issue 81 / 2015 artist of the month tom misch 2015 has been a great year for the young Londoner ones to Watch LoyLe carner Ben Coyle-Larner, or as he is more affectionately known, Loyle Carner, is our hot- test hip-hop hope In September 2014, Loyle Carner released his debut EP entitled A Little Late, based on real life experiences centred around the death of his step-father and the challenge of being the oldest child in a family suffering with the loss of a parent. The EP gained him much recognition due to the catchy beats produced by Loyle Carner's real-life best friend, Rebel Kleff, juxtaposed with the deep, haunting lyrics provided by the 20-year-old rapper. After graduating from the Brit School following a drama scholarship, the young South- Londoner decided to follow his career in rapping, and after playing sets at Reading/Leeds, Outlook, Visions, Blissfields and Glastonbury in 2015, as well as supporting Mercury Prize nominee Kate Tempest on her 2015 UK tour, the music world has certainly sat up and listened to the man who has a credited acting role in the 2008 film 10,000 BC. The Fader has referred to him as "Britain's most recent new hope in Hip-Hop", and that is well backed-up, with the release of Loyle Carner's new singles 'Tierney Terrace', 'Florence (ft. Kwes)', and most recently, 'Ain't Nothing's Changed' having led to his own mini tour of England in November. Playing in Brighton, Leeds and Manchester, as well as his sold out show Corsica Studios in London, this a chance to see a future talent at his raw best before he takes off. Due to the demand for tickets in London, he has arranged another date in London at Village Underground in Shoreditch on 16th February, 2016.

You can expect some very special guests to pop up on the night, including D Double E and Ghetts, and rising rap star Bonkaz joins in support. Kano has this to say about the big night: "At first, this was something I couldn't see myself doing, as I'm not too bothered about the whole '10-year' thing. Then a phone call from Wretch 32 changed my stance – he told me it would "be a sin" if I didn't mark this anniversary with a celebration. Now I can't wait to touch the stage…" Kano Kano is in town for a one-off show at Heaven on November 26th HIPHOP/ RNB Fresh off the release of his well-received album, Tom Misch has been releasing various tracks which make up Beat Tape 2 (Extended Edition) and are most definitely worthy of reaching the ears of his ever-growing fanbase. With a set at Bestival and Parklife behind his back and the release of his album on iTunes, as well as much-coveted airplay on Apple's 'Beats1' Radio station, this guy is on fire. Beat Tape 2 is a lesson in how to make complete hip-hop beats with different feels to them and despite his young age, Misch seems to have a mastery of the genre.
