Hip-Hop & R&B DisKovery – February 2023

Our monthly DisKovery is back with a new installment.  This time K Hip-Hop and K R&B wasn’t as busy as previous months, nevertheless, we managed to find a few undiscovered gems that are a must listen to Hip-Hop and R&B fans. Let’s begin. 

Rakon has been releasing music since 2019, however he caught our attention with his latest album ‘feel you, kon’, this release has amazing features including Paloalto and Leellamarz, however, what sold it for us  was the smooth Hip-Hop and R&B beats mix across the album. Definitely a must listen if you are into hip-hop bits with a touch of instrumentation.

You can listen to this album here, and to keep an eye on his upcoming projects, check his Instagram.

The not so indie but still-should-get-more-recognition crew 0WAVE released the EP ‘balaclava’, everything about this release is fantastic, the sound, flow and still is just *chef’s kiss.

You can find it here, and to keep up with their work as a team and individually check their instagram

Another one that is somewhat known but can for should get more monthly listeners is KOALA, he came back with  the single ‘Koalified’ featuring pH-1, and this track is a total vibe with amazing bars and killer flow. 

Here is his instagram, and check his releases here

YEOHO is the latest debut under wedaplugg records, his debut release is the single album ‘fauvism’ made of mostly beats but with an insane quality. 

Follow him on Instagram here, and listen to this very vibey debut here.

SINDOSI:22 started releasing music just last year, but their latest EP ‘howtosurvive____’ is something else. The sound, style and chill vibe of this release peak perfection and their concept is just cool.

Here is their Instagram and listen to this release here

That’s a wrap for this month’s discovery, see you next month with more discoveries and recommendations.
