New Artist: 2morrows Victory

2morrows Victory are a London-based Hip-hop group, united by a love of track cycling, who fuse Soul and Electronic sounds to create some really interesting music. Search their name in Google Images and you’ll find more photos of bikes than them, but aside from the fly mode of transport (who knew Hip-hop and cycling go so effortlessly together?!), they have a lot more going for them.

New Artist: Chance the Rapper

What better way to mark the beginning of a new year than with some fresh young talent from Chicago that you are bound to hear a lot of in 2012. The 18 year old MC has been cooking up a bit of a storm in the Chi-town area, pairing quick-fire lyrics with breezy flows. His forthcoming project 10day is a concept album based on a 10 day suspension handed down to Chance during his senior year of high school – an idea not too dissimilar to that of other Chicago-born rapper Kanye West and his debut, The College Dropout. Looks like Chance has chosen the right path to greatness…
