The Cool Quest have been featured on TWIB before and it was only right to showcase their non traditional rap music on our pages once again. Their newest song “Goodlife” is a brilliant mix of rap, funk and  electronic elements.



Emerging hip-hop artist YB recounts the past to celebrate the present in new music video for “Rearview Mirror.” The emotional visual skillfully blends impassioned lyricism with seamless cinematography backed by a smooth, lo-fi bass loop. “Rearview Mirror” is the second single from his forthcoming album God Still Has Soldiers 2.


The North West London(UK) based Grand Wa Zoo takes its influence from 90’s hip-hop, putting their own stamp on the UK sound and the international scene.  “Panacea” is their latest effort is a solid fusion of jazz, hiphop laced with insightful lyrics.


Compulsive is a twenty two year old enigma out of Göteborg, Sweden. Born in England but raised both there and in Scandinavia, he blends American technical proficiency with a distinct European taste. The Truth is a bare-all, tell-all dramatic portrayal of one man’s honesty. Compulsive describes the heart on his sleeve; which he shows the world over a cloudy, almost ambient production from Bert and Tim Carlberg that amps up as the song progresses. From lines touching upon family issues, the industry and dreams, it’s clearly a song about getting a house in order. But despite all of this, it still seems like the calm before the storm.”



Seattle native Isaac Thursday pens a lovelorn track on his new single titled “Her”. The song is about his ex fiancee and dwells on the toxic relationship they both were involved in. The song is mellow, sombre and pretty reflective. In a nutshell the heartbreak inspired him to spill out all his emotions onto the track for everybody to listen to as a sign of closure.
