2018 has been a great year of music in the UK, particularly with independent artisits from the electronic and urban music scene. To celebrate, we’ve included some of our favourite songs of 2018 from the UK’s underground music scene.
2018 has been a brilliant year of music for independent artists in the UK, and as always, the aim of Inspired Sound is to shed light on artists who may go a little under the radar, or a little over some people’s head. So, to celebrate some great releases, and to celebrate a little over a year of Inspired Sound we wanted to highlight some of our favourite album releases from the UK this year.
Now, to narrow the choices we wanted to focus our attention on UK album releases only, and not singles or EPs. Generally, albums really highlight a more significant marker in an artists’ career and, whether it’s through beats or words, it can tell a more intimate picture of the artists’ current mood, thoughts, and influences. As ever, the platform has always tried to focus on independent artists, and the aim has always been to share good music which comes my way, no matter the genre. So, in no particular order:
Children of Zeus – Travel Light
The Magrehban – 01DEAS
Kaidi Tatham – It’s All About You
Louis VI – Sugar Like Salt
The Expansions – Murmuration
Manga St Hilaire – Outsiders Live Forever
Kamaal Williams – The Return
Moses Boyd – Displaced Diaspora
Maisha – There Is A Place
Blue Lab Beats – Xover
Barney Artist – Home Is Where The Art Is
Summers Sons – Uruhu
