7 Artists You Need To Know {January 2017}


On the last day of every month, we’re going to make a list of 7 new music artist discoveries that we feel the people need to know about. You can listen to some of their material on our ‘7 New Artists You Need To Know’ playlist at the bottom of the page!


This up-and-coming artist has been working with super-producer Cardo lately, giving him an official co-sign in the music game. Their ‘CHE GOT WINGS’ EP is filled with waves that got us intrigued to see his career develop. Listen to ‘Complete’ below, which we feel has a lot of radio appeal.

Tay Walker


This R&B/soul act from Inglewood should start to be on your radar. He first got our attention after Syd from The Internet retweeted the song below, and after more research, he’s very affiliated with the band as a drummer. With the group releasing solo work, Tay Walker decided to do the same and ‘Runaway’ has been one of our favorites to drop this month!

This mysterious R&B trio released their debut EP ‘INTO’ just this past week and it has become the late-night soundtrack. Their sound, led by vocalist Brent Faiyaz, is moody and atmospheric, similar to that of OVO’s new duo dvsn. If you like traditional R&B with a hint of that new age, futuristic production then Sonder is the right music for you.

Maajei Vu


The multi-talented Milwaukee artist is very well on his way. He’s gotten a lot of attention in his city producing for artists like IshDARR, BANKX and more. Now, he’s releasing his own music and his sound is ready to pop. You can hear elements of Bryson Tiller and Tory Lanez in his sound on his latest EP ‘Solara Ultima’. Now, he’s been working with producers Cardo and Johnny Juliano so sky is the limit for this young talent!



If the new TDE signee isn’t on your radar already, he damn well should be. His label debut single W$ Boi’ has been in our listening rotation and has us very excited for his future. SiR’s next EP ‘Her Too’ drops February 10th so keep your ears open to that!

Lorine Chia

We first came across Lorine Chia’s soulful vocals after her work with The Game towards the end of 2016. Since then, she’s released an amazing EP to kick off 2017. Get familiar with her now by checking her EP ‘When Morning Comes‘ if you want some Erykah Badu vibes.

The artist from Brooklyn has a lot of quality material on his SoundCloud page. He’s done some work with Dreamville producer KQuick, which got him a lot of underground attention and success on SoundCloud. Other than that, he has a lot of wavy, atmospheric type vibes in his catalogue. Be sure to check out his material; you won’t regret it!
