Indie Music Hour with DJ HotJack

A regular journey around the music scene

Unsigned Artist Alert – Grip

Something a little different now. As a British indie-kid I’ve tended not to delve too much into hip hop or RnB but Grip contacted me after reading another Indie Music Hour Unsigned Artist Alert and I added his mixtape to my listening list.

Grip is an independent performer from Brooklyn who writes and produces his own material. The mixtape is called Future of the Fly Shit and I’ll put a link at the end of this post so Indie Music Hour listeners can download it for free.

I’ve gotta say, I enjoyed this. I don’t feel I can really add any knowing comments to this as it’s still not a genre of music I’ve had a lot of exposure to. The lyrics felt unforced and well-crafted and the whole thing flowed well. I’d say the effect would be better in the car with the hood down on a warm summer evening but this is the UK so I had to settle for noise-cancelling headphones whilst sat at my PC.

I think it’s great that artists are out there producing, writing and performing regardless of what genre of music they align themselves with and Indie Music Hour will always aim to highlight talent from different spectrums of the music scene.

You can get your hands on the whole Grip mixtape HERE and his myspace page is HERE
