Stash Peso, a young rapper from London who is making a name for himself, is an artist who knows how to turn heads in the right way. His top quality rhymes and well produced rap has won support from many top level tastemakers, including the likes of Clash Magazine, SBTV, Link Up TV, GRM Daily and more.
It’s not everyday that an artist comes along and is able to command such attention, particularly in a thriving UK genre. But singles like ‘Glow’, which preceded excellent EP ‘Shine’, show exactly why.
‘Shine’ is out now, and you can hear it here: https://soundcloud.com/juststash/sets/shine-ep

It’s been a big couple of years for young UK song writer Ellie Jane. This talented young lady reached the final of Open Mic UK, a huge national independent talent competition, in 2015 and also saw a collaboration with drum’n’bass duo Mind Vortex featured on Radio 1. These things don’t happen by accident, and are a marker for just how promising Ellie Jane’s musical career could be.
Her latest effort, six song EP ‘Clocks’, sees her working solo. As demonstrated by the lead track above, her sound is built on the foundations of accessible pop. However, her love for urban, hip hop and drum’n’bass is also evident on the EP, setting her apart from many of her peers.
It’s not necessarily the genre you’d expect coming out of a new band from Scotland, but ‘Chase Yirsel’ is a brand new hip hop track taken from the upcoming Stanley Odd EP.
With an amusingly up to date satirical bent, this is definitely a song to enjoy – and if you do, there are live dates below.
22 April – London, The Garage
01 May – Aberdeen, Tunnels
03 May – Inverness, Brew at the Bog Festival
04 May – Middlesbrough, SumDay Festival
