“Loyle Carner is Britain’s most recent new hope in hip hop,” according to The Fader and countless others. The 21 year old emcee from South London has been causing quite a stir following the release of his debut ‘A Little Late’ EP in September of 2014.All but one track on the EP was produced by Loyle’s right hand man and live partner Rebel Kleff. The two of them create reminiscent old school hip hop with their own UK and modern influences. Everything since then has lead Loyle on to be shortlisted for the BBC’s Sound Of 2016.
After first appearing in 2013 on Rejjie Snow’s ‘Rejovich’ EP on track ‘1992’, Loyle’s name started to make the rounds, not least to mention the track being picked up by Majestic Casual and has racked up over 1 million views to date. Following the release of the ‘A Little Late’ EP, Loyle has gone on to work with the likes of Kate Tempest, Kiko Bun, Tom Misch and multiple others, all in preparation for releases in 2016.
With Loyle’s debut headline tour recently coming to close with sold out shows across the board and three successful UK support tours now under his belt with Kate Tempest, Joey Bada$$ and Atmosphere, Loyle is set to make some serious moves on the UK circuit and abroad. His second headline tour has had an extra London date added due to unbelievable demand.
Strong support is coming from all over Europe, the US and Australia. Support in the UK has come from all areas, from the Guardian§, i-D and the NME, to being championed on Radio 1 by Huw Stephens, Annie Mac and Phil Taggart, and by DJ Semtex at Radio 1Xtra. His single ‘Guts’ with Kate Tempest was added to 6Music’s A-list, winning him a legion of new fans. His latest single ‘Ain’t Nothing Changed’ was added to Radio 1’s In New Music We Trust playlist, 6Music’s C list, and was chosen as Annie Mac’s ‘Tune Of The Week’ week beginning 23rd November.
