As we start to round-up the best of 2015 and look forward to what’s up-and-coming in 2016, we thought we’d get a rising star to tell us who to look out for in the coming year. Louis Mattrs is just that: a multi-talented songwriter whose recent EP Slow Waves he largely produced himself and features LK Faith and Lucky Eck$. Here Louis tells us his must-see acts for next year.
Such an amazing producer with a very distinct sound. His song ‘Souvenirs’ is so hypnotic.
A very unusual individual which comes across in her music too. Her flow on ‘So High’ hits the spot.
Her song ‘Ridin Round’ makes you feel like you’re in a movie when you’re driving round your city.
He brings a rappers flow to all his songs and puts melodies to them. He’s too sick. ‘Don’t’ is favourite of mine.
He’s a singer/rapper from Toronto who can steal your girl. His song ‘Henny In Hand’ is so smooth.
An angelic voice to say the least. Her verse melody on ‘No Other Way’ is a panty dropper.
‘Bad Blood’ has been played in my house about 100 times. Effortless sining over a 10 out of 10 production from Grades.
His production will leave you in a trance whilst waving your gun fingers. ‘Are U There?’ has an almighty drop.
His style of production is almost computer game like. Using soulful chords to ease your ears. ‘With You’ is my favourite track, bringing a touch of Garage vibes.
Eryn Allen Kane
A stunning singer/song-writer from Chicago. Her song ‘Have Mercy’ will give you chills.
