Welcome back to another edition of Saturday Spotlight following a few weeks break. Each week we review submissions from all over the globe, picking the best out of the batch to highlight at the end of the week. If you’re an aspiring rapper, a producer wanting to create a buzz, or a singer looking to expose their talent, the Saturday Spotlight series is dedicated to discovering the next star.
Whether it’s your latest single or a new beat you made, all upcoming artists can submit music to us for Saturday Spotlight on this link.
Alley Rocket is the first artist we pick for our discovery series for 2022 and we’re not disappointed at all. Alley comes from Newark, New Jersey but listening to his music, it’s hard to tell where he’s really from because his style is quite versatile. The 23 year-old has the raps but he’s also mindful of creating good songs. Watch the video for the intro ‘Big Step’ below, taken from his latest album Apollo Boy Deluxe Edition.
One thing about Philly is, you’ll always find some solid street artists with potential. Ot7QUANNY seems to be next up from the city who has released his new single ‘Dog Talk’ recently, accompanied by a music video. Ot7QUANNY has been co-signed by OVO Sound Radio and other outlets already and HHNM is the next one to give him a look. Watch the clip below.
