SOUTH EAST LONDON WORDSMITH, DWILLS, OFFICIALLY DEBUTS WITH THE TASTEFULLY OUT OF THIS WORLD VISUAL FOR ‘SHINERS’.

Published

on

Introducing you to a brand new name in rap you need to know – South East London based lyricist DWills steps into the space with his official debut track “Shiners”, effortlessly marking his presence with an infectious catchy single you need to hear. Short and sweet, this single produced by LVCIEN comes paired with an equally tasteful visual that opens up an exciting window into his eclectic style and unique vision. Bouncing sonically between a galaxy of trap-hats, cheeky ad libs and slick wordplay, “Shiners” is the perfect entry track to the new name ready to take space.

Speaking on the creative direction behind the visual, DWills mentions, “I actually let the visual team take the reins on producing the visuals – I let the creative team go off with it and they kill it every time!”. Creative Production team Alibivisions adds, “We teamed up with DWills on this after seeing him perform, and the energy he’d bring to the stage. We knew that if we could capture it using a 360 cam and techniques such as lens whacking, we’d be able to efficiently showcase the style of music DWills creates, with the growing cinematic style we intertwine with our style of visuals.”

Drawing inspiration from the likes of ASAP Rocky, Skepta, Wu-tang Clan and Nas to name a few, DWIlls is fast creating a distinctive name for himself across the underground scene, and is ready to cultivate a wider presence. Speaking on the making of “Shiners” and the meaning behind the track itself, DWills comments, “Shiners is about being true to yourself and standing out without having to “fake it till you make it” like many others feel obligated to do.

Shining with the people you started with and still doing great things while being true to yourself.“
DWills is best described as a visionary artist who provides a new and needed vibrant sound to the UK music scene. Utilising an extensive palette of slick flows, captivating lyrical executions while complimented by deep, heavy bass alluring melodies, his artistic growth and experience is felt in every song, with “Shiners” being just a snapshot of what’s to come from the rapper in 2024.

Taking the stage single handedly or with Da Community collective – London’s East End collective for emerging Black artists across rap, hip-hop, jazz and soul who are “joining forces to thrive in a notoriously inaccessible industry” – D Wills continues to grow by leaning further into his niche and stepping out the box with his original sound. Catching the attention of well respected brands and platforms including Timberland, Lounges.

TV, UD and an exclusive live orchestra “BrixChamber”, DWills definitely has a lot more to bring. With a string of releases prepped and ready for the new year, keep your ear to the ground as we’re excited to bring you a lot more from DWills.

Ryck Jane Sets The Tone With “No Problems” + “You Gone Learn Today”

Published

on

By

Ryck Jane

The first thing we see in Neesin Williams’s vibrant video for “You Gone Learn Today” is Ryck Jane’s earrings. They’re hard to miss — and they also might’ve been a challenge to wear. The two matching accessories that dangle from the rapper’s lobes appear to be made of solid gold. But the most notable thing about them is what they signify. They’re L.A. logos: twin declarations of allegiance to the city and scene that made her.

Even without the earrings, fans would know exactly where Ryck Jane was from. It’s not just her California drawl, the left coast pattern of her cadences, or the hard Los Angeleno funk that forms the bedrock of her irresistible recordings. It’s also in her dedication to glamour and her scrupulous attention to every detail of presentation. Jane knows exactly how to showcase her fierce individuality. She may be a new artist, but she handles herself like a showbiz veteran. She believes that she was born to inhabit the spotlight — and single after single, she demonstrates that her confidence isn’t misplaced.

“You Gone Learn Today” is her boldest declaration of autonomy yet. On the track, Ryck Jane raps about the inevitability of her rise and underscores her theme with a performance that’s relentless, colorful, and loaded with personality. Call it a message to the nonbelievers — who are getting harder and harder to find. The production backs up her boasts: the track is muscular and hypnotic, decorated with a thick, serpentine bass synthesizer lead, skittering beats, a thumping kick drum, and chanted backing vocals. The deep musicality of the track arrangement is a reminder that long before Ryck Jane found fame as an independent rapper, she’d distinguished herself as a trumpeter.

That horn shows up on “No Problems. The track is a centerpiece of Jane Got A Gun, the rapper’s scalding 2023 album. It’s slinkier and more subtle than the rambunctious “You Gone Learn Today,” but as the video makes clear, it’s another message to the world that Ryck James can’t be stopped. Just like the “You Gone Learn Today” video clip, “No Problems” is a showcase for the artist’s unique, and unerring sense of style.  It’s all here, and it’s all wild, and worn with the self-possession of a queen.
