What the future of hip-hop sounds like: experimental, genderless, diverse and avant-garde
WhenMon. 4 May, 2020
fter uploading his beats on Soundcloud under his alter ego LTGL, everything just took off by itself, quicker than he or anyone anticipated.
Ashley began playing shows all over Europe in no time; He opened up for the likes of Gaslamp Killer, Ras G, Freetherobots, made remixes for Ashnikko, Abraham Blue & he could count Giles Peterson (BBC1), Lefto, Gaslamp Killer, Joe Kay, Daedalus and many more as his supporters. This all lead to a pinnacle moment - an offer from his dream label, a new international booking agency, an offer for a show in South Africa.
However he wasn’t satisfied with his work so he dropped everything to focus on his creative development. After studying jazz for a year, and getting into a conservatory didn’t work out, he decided to just focus on his own music and on developing his voice. Two years later he feels ready to share his journey with the world. Releasing brand new authentic music as no alter ego, but Ashley Morgan.
Following in the footsteps of her incredible grandmother, a skilled Manipuri singer and sword dancer, Nayana fuses all of these cultural influences and lands on something that feels fully representative of who she is.
NAYANA IZ is a MC and vocalist from North London. She is part of the NiNE8 Collective and founder of Hydratation Studios.
