We’ve been active on SubmitHub for about a month now and have received thousands of submissions!
Check out the batch below, go follow some new artists and stay locked to our Spotify to be listening on repeat.
NIINA ROSA – LATENT SYNCHRONICITY
Gentle James Blake like alternative / indie R&B from artist & producer NIINA ROSA. Slow, ambient vibes with some nice calming vocals. One to chill to.
OG GUIZZ – HAN SOLO
Can’t understand a word of this but its fire. From the country guitar at the intro to the rapid Lil Uzi Vert like flows or the sharp cadences, this from French artist OG GUIZZ grabs your attention and doesn’t let it go.
OFLO – ALL I WANA DO
This is a playful, fun jam from Brooklyn producer and artist OFLO. Tight production and cheeky lyrics on a Doja Cat type tip at just under two minutes long.
S.TOUZE – USA
This feels like a cool jam you’d cop at the end of Sesame Street or something like that. Full nostalgic pop-funk vibes from S.Touze outta Rhode Island. Sits in a tight 90’s DJ Jazzy Jeff / Will Smith pocket even if a bit patriotic.
RICKY DAVAINE – YESSIRSKI FREESTYLE
Memphis rapper RICKY DAVAINE comes through with a slick freestyle full of bars and nice autotune melodies. Elements of EARTHGANG in the flows, but it’s the tight pen game that has us locked in.
OXIGANG – SHOOTER
Got damn where my shooter? This hook stuck in our heads after one listen. OXIGANG come through on some ASAP MOB type energy with the squad all going in at the convenience store. Hella fun clip & track.
