Trying to find new music to listen to? Get tired of listening to the same songs over and over? Well, the music division of HYPEBEAST is proud to present HYPEBEAST Music Playlist, our new weekly playlist. Curated by the HYPEBEAST music team, the playlist will feature new releases across all genres from a wide range of artists and talents not covered regularly on the web. For consistency, it will be updated every Wednesday with new music drops over the course of the previous weeks.
For HYPEBEAST Music Playlist 001, the staff spotlighted a wide array of artists from many genres of music including underground West Coast hip-hop, alternative music, to R&B.
If you have any doubt that the West Coast isn’t thriving, get up on artists such as Project Poppa, Drakeo The Ruler, Ketchy the Great and ALLBLACK, to name a few. There’s a plethora of underground talent in Southern California and The Bay Area that’s putting out some of the best music right now.
There is a number of indie/alternative artists who are starting to make a name for themselves. Yellow Days, Tom Misch, Inner Wave and Soccer Mommy have grown from best-kept secrets to pop darlings to watch.
R&B’s popularity has risen to new levels with the emergence of acts such as SZA and Jorja Smith. The next line of acts who could make the next jump are UK’s IAMDDB, Toronto’s Sloan Evans, and Arin Ray. Rounding out the playlist are Snail Mail who’s bringing the indie rock vibes, Tierra Whack‘s blending fun sounds and Burna Boy, one of the new faces of Afrobeat.
