The unpre­dict­able music of rap­per, pro­du­cer and sing­er Pink Siifu swings through notes of soul, punk, jazz, rap and exper­i­ment­al.

Pink Siifu is an artist from Birm­ing­ham, Alabama, mak­ing music that reflects the ideas, life and struggles exper­i­enced through Black­ness.

His debut pro­ject, ens­ley, con­sisted of faith, fam­ily and com­munity, which inspire both his art and com­mu­nic­a­tion.

In his Pitch­fork review of ens­ley, Jonah Brom­wich said: ‘Pro-Black at every turn and impli­citly anti-cap­it­al­ist, ens­ley is a por­trait of the artist in frag­ments that reflect Matthews’s image, split­ting and toss­ing it every which way, form­ing a more com­plete pic­ture than a tra­di­tion­al album might.’

Pink Siifu also makes music as part of duo B. Cool-Aid, and fre­quently col­lab­or­ates with the pro­du­cer Swarvy.

Goya Gum­bani moved with his fam­ily from New York to Lon­don when he was a teen­ager, but he still sounds like an MC straight out of Brook­lyn. His lax rap flows win over East Coast boom-bap fans, ooz­ing a serene calm rather than adher­ing to tox­ic macho ste­reo­types.

A dec­ade of col­lab­or­a­tions in his new UK home inspired a back-to-back stream of EPs in 2020 with south Lon­don beat­makers Rago Foot and Kiina. The res­ult is an eleg­ant cros­sov­er into SE1’s mod­ern jazz com­munity.

muva of Earth is an altern­at­ive jazz sing­er from south east Lon­don. Grow­ing up she felt the influ­ence of Amy Wine­house and Bey­on­cé, while today, her ever-evolving being is deeply inspired by Sun Ra, Sade, Björk and Fela Kuti.

By con­nect­ing to her Yor­uba roots, muva’s music explores the com­plex­it­ies of iden­tity, the self and human con­nec­tions over a bed of Afro­fu­tur­ist­ic rhythms and atmo­spher­ic horns.
