Cosmopolitan (UK) - - Contents -

MASEGO

This is your man. He fuses house, jazz and gen­tle trap with sul­try vo­cals – his back cat­a­logue can sound­track all sorts of chilled nights in…

Check out: His show at O2 Shep­herd’s Bush Em­pire,* or his YouTube Col­ors ses­sion.

IAMDDB

You need Man­cu­nian monarch of trap-jazz IAMDDB. She mixes hiphop and sass-drip­ping lyrics – and is about to blow up.

Check out: IAMDDB Un­scripted, the YouTube se­ries chart­ing her suc­cess.

IBEYI

You’ll like ur­ban jazz with a side of pop soul. Try Ibeyi, AKA twins Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Diaz. (They were in Bey­oncé’s Le­mon­ade video.)

Check out: Their lat­est al­bum, Ash, and Eu­ro­pean tour, from late Septem­ber.

BLUE LAB BEATS

That get-to­gether you’re plan­ning is beg­ging to be ac­com­pa­nied by Blue Lab Beats, a north-Lon­don duo who spe­cialise in jaz­ztron­ica (jazz and elec­tron­ica, FYI). Check out: Oooo Lala, taken from de­but al­bum Xover.
