Hi, I’m Matthew, Music Supervisor at the London office of PlayNetwork. The start of 2021 was all doom and gloom, but as lockdown gently lifts here in the UK and spring approaches, a flood of emerging artists float to the surface, ready to soundtrack the summer of 2021.
Artist: Pauli The PSM
Track: I Got The Beat
Pauli The PSM is known for lending his talent and know-how to the likes of FKA twigs, Jamie xx, Sampha, Damon Albarn and Gorillaz as both a drummer and music director. “I Got The Beat” is a raw and compelling track with a vibrancy that captivates the listener. His voice has an infectious grace as he layers chaotic noises over a sparse rhythmic pattern. There are subtle nods to black masculinity and social identity in his lyrics that are further explored in the video.
Artist: Maple Glider
