Part of Singapore: Inside Out, hip-hop artiste Kevin Lester — also known as THELIONCITYBOY — shares what he's been digging this week
I'm a huge Soundcloud champion — it's one of the best places to find new music these days. Most of the tracks on here were found through blogs or online radio shows. At times, I'd spend hours before I sleep just searching for new music.
I've met some amazing talents, like Marc E. Bassy and FlightSch, who continue to inspire me with their work. FlightSch is my partner in my crime — he's the composer and producer for most of my own work, like She Wild on the list.
Mryne with his lush and leavy beats is a Singaporean to look out for. He recently signed on to Diplo's label Mad Decent, and the future looks bright for him.
One of my favorites right now is Eryn Allen Kane's Have Mercy. It's an incredibly powerful track that's only built with her vocals from bass to highs — it's all her! Check out DVSN — no one knows his or her true identity but the tracks have appeared on Drake's OVO sound radio and have since gotten a lot of buzz. I'm sharing that to keep you guys in the loop too!
P.S Don't sleep on Amir Obe in the list. His flow is so addictive.
Catch THELIONCITYBOY feat. Amanda Tan/Empyreal on 6 December, 6.30pm at the SGMUSO Live Showcase along with Pleasantry.
