Combining elements of jazz and hip-hop, Louis VI's 'Jazz Got Me' is a refreshing release.
Louis VI was raised by his single mum on a collection of De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest and Gil Scott-Heron. Falling in love with music at an early age, he was writing bars and learning multiple instruments as a kid.
Building a reputation for his live sets, he has developed in the same London hip-hop circle as Little Simz, Kojey Radical & Ezra Collective and has toured with the likes of Loyle Carner.
His new single ‘Jazz Got Me’ is a refreshing release, combining elements of jazz and hip-hop. With fluttering trumpet parts, Louis VI raps over a rolling baseline bolstered by fun hooks and tight drum beats. He even makes room for Mick Jenkins who features on the track, uniting Louis VI’s sound with a more traditional flow.
Louis’ description of the track would suggest that the track is a taster of what is to come:
The track sees London, Chicago and Los Angeles all unite to create a whole new vibe and style that will shake the speakers in the shoobz but a message to leave you empowered, woke and energised to surmount the bullshit in your life."
Louis VI has racked up over 77,000 total playlist followers in the past seven days alone, adding to his 14,741 monthly listeners (TalentAI). With such a refreshing sound, we expect this to grow significantly in the coming months.
