The excitement of hearing something new, which really blows you away, is hard to beat. That’s why we are always on the lookout for fresh and inspiring new talent to work with and develop.
Every artist needs a bit of extra help to push their music to the right people and make sure they are getting the recognition they deserve. No-one has time to do everything, and if we feel the same passion for your music as you do, then we would love to help you.
We are currently representing UK Hiphop artist Otis Mensah.
Hip-Hop's first official Poet Laureate; Otis Mensah is "a young story-teller-rapper-poet with a talent for drawing the poetic from the everyday happenings in his life.” The alternative hip-hop artist has risen from a new wave; age and era, embodying a contemporary, poetic take on hip-hop music.
The music he creates sheds light on existential commonalities discovered through introspection with often off-kilter lyrics, accompanied by a sentimental vibe. Otis’ music almost appears as a stream of consciousness, as though the young artist is documenting a journey of thought, however, drowned in playful imagery and unconventional symbolism left open to interpretation.
Otis has also done live performances on BBC 6Music, Radio 1, 1Xtra, and tracks have been playlisted and supported at various times as per this list below:
- Single 'Solar Eclipse' playlisted twice via Steve Lamacq show on BBC 6Music
