Aitch

Aitch

Aitch is an Independent British Rapper and Songwriter hailing from an area called New Moston in North Manchester. He started his musical career like many others, freestyling with his group of friends on the school yard.

His skippy flow and crafty lyrics made him stand out amongst his peers which then led him to sign with Manchester based Entertainment Company Northern Quarterz and shortly after, releasing his career defining 'Straight Rhymez' Freestyle which has accumulated over 5 million views within 5 months.

In Aitch’s short career he has already performed with greats like Wiley and Bugzy Malone and received co-signs from global figures such as Stormzy, Virgil Abloh, Charlie Sloth and Lil Durk.

Still Only 19, Aitch was born with the undeniable potential to become one of the UK's biggest acts in recent years, and he will surely be an indisputable force to be reckoned with in the coming years.

Doja Cat

Doja Cat

Born and raised in L.A., Doja Cat made her first upload to Soundcloud in 2013 at just 16. She developed a knack for music by studying piano and dance as a kid and listening to the likes of Busta Rhymes, Erykah Badu, Nicki Minaj, Drake, and more. Soon, she went from obsessing over Catwoman to “crate digging” on YouTube and learning Logic and composition on a midi controller.

Signed to RCA during 2014, she unveiled her acclaimed Purrr! EP. Its lead single “So High” impressively racked up over 30 million cumulative streams and garnered praise from tastemakers such as Fader, Vibe, Paper and Pigeons & Planes. Averaging nearly half-a-million monthly listeners on Spotify, she further engaged that growing fan base by touring with Lizzo, Father and Theophilus London. Along the way, she assembled what would become her debut album, Amala.

Asserting a feline-esque dominance and a style that can only be described as every colour in a box of crayons, Doja Cat’s unapologetic charisma, charm, and confidence take centre stage. With co-signs from Chance The Rapper, Katy Perry, Chris Brown and J.Cole, 2018’s hit “Mooo!” propelled her forward, adding many fans to her already feverishly loyal fan base.

Octavian

Octavian

Winner of BBC Sound 2019, French-born, south-east London-raised rapper Octavian announced himself to the wider world with the release of his first official single, 'Party Here' in December 2017.

Alongside production from his close-knit 'Essie Gang' crew, his music takes elements of R&B, Dancehall, grime and house — a truly unique sound that is setting the template for rap in 2018.

Since the release of 'Party Here' Octavian released his first mixtape SPACEMAN in 2018, featured on Mura Masa's hit 'Move Me' and Diplo's 'New Shapes' single before releasing his huge hit Bet (feat. Skepta & Michael Phantom) taken from his 2019 release: Endorphins.
