Akelle Charles, Haile & Louis Rei, x In2

This one from West London trio Akelle Charles, Haile and Louis Rei has been getting lots of radio play and rightly so, its the perfect example of how UK hip hop can sound. Haile kills it on the hook, and the video compliments the tune’s laidback summertime vibes. Watch out for more from the trio on their Western Union Ep. Also check out their cover of Behind Curtains from last year.

HDD x Nous Fm Mix

We had the honour of doing a mix for Double Clapperz show on Nous Fm. We went with an Afrohouse theme to switch things up and kept it World Carnival all the way.
