[Happy Birthday] Novelist’s 2 hour set for Radar Radio is where it’s at


To celebrate his 19th birthday, yes, this man is just 19 years old, Novelist put together an action packed 2 hour set for Radar Radio London. The set features Skepta, P Money, Jammer, Chip, YGG, Blackz, Shorty and others. The boards are manned by Grandmixxer, Courts and Travis T. This serves as a nice introduction to anyone who wants to familiarize themselves with the genre of grime. Novelist is one of the frontrunners in the genre and 2016 is going to be big for him and for the genre as a whole. Get familiar below.

[Must Listen] “GHOST” by Virginia’s REECE


I’m currently sitting in the Seattle-Tacoma Airport trolling through Soundcloud listening to wave after wave of mediocre music. When I clicked play on “GHOST” by REECE, apparently a 19 year old out of Virginia, I wouldn’t say I was expecting a whole lot. I was wrong. REECE kills this track. No question about it. From start to finish. His screeching, soaring vocals compliment the slow, minimalist, piano-filled beat to perfection. The fact that this came out 6 months ago and I’m just now hearing it for the first time is a travesty. Imagine Michael Jackson, The Weeknd, Yung Lean AND Spooky Black having a child, you might get REECE (that’s obviously a bit of a stretch, but you get the point). His sound lies somewhere between all of those artists. Listen to “GHOST” below and keep an eye out for more of REECE on Smooth Waves.
