Anon – Medicated
South London raised emcee Anon gets really profound on his newest record titled “Medicated”. The song is a very poignant outlook on mental health from his own experiences. He does this over a gloomy production from TKBeatz and additional solemn strings by The Grime Violinist. The music video depicts the story of a man going through his daily battles with mental health, whilst trying to keep up a brave smile for his daughter, and the ‘to be continued’ sign at the end suggests that there is more to be said about this subject. “Medicated” is his first single since signing to Defenders Ent, so expect more singles and an EP later this year.

Sobhhï – BLACK I
To wrap up this week’s submissions we had to share this solid body of work from singer/songwriter Sobhhï. Titled ‘Black I”, the project is the follow up to his debut EP’s, RED I and RED II earlier last year. The projects were mastered by 5x Grammy Nominated Mike Bozzi (Kendrick Lamar, Post Malone, SZA). Made up of 4 tracks that traverse through trapsoul and alternative R&B. Sobhhï’s earworm melodies over the moody, nocturnal production is what makes it pretty engaging. Yes, you can hear the Frank Ocean, The Weeknd, and Drake influences but Sobhhï takes it up a notch in his own unique way.
