Ess_West is an artist and producer who brings the worlds of hip hop and indie together, candidly showing vulnerability in a genre where artists don’t always show their emotions. His music presents a unique cross-genre sonic experience, blending real road content with emotive, eloquent delivery.
The Brixton-based artist returns with new single ‘You’, out 9th August on Poorhouse Studios.
Channeling a romantic summertime 2-step vibe, ‘You’ is a song about eventually putting yourself first and the warmth that accompanies that action. Transitional yet intimate, the track’s slow and calming yet danceable elements make it feel like those wistful last nights of summer. His second single release of the year, it follows June’s ‘Ouch’, a track that has been supported by the likes of Dummy, Wonderland and GRM Daily.
South London-raised artist Ess West’s recent output draws inspiration from what many would consider disparate worlds of transatlantic rap and UK indie. He has honed an individual soundscape which he now implements in full force through his own music and visual experiences, with a string of further releases and production work in the pipeline.
Ess West’s second single in quick succession, the scintillating ‘You’ is a perfect accompaniment for the searing South London summer heat.
