Though I like to pride myself on being a know-it-all that tends to be pretty early to anything in the realm of music – I have no issue admitting when I’m late to the party. This week Brett from Sparky humbled me by sending over a cheeky little tune in the form of UK rapper Saiming’s “WOOF MEOW” – which seems to be having a little bit of a viral moment right now. It’s not hard to hear why people like the track – Saiming’s rapping is concentrated and tightly woven, equally clever and laid-back. The dilushselva-produced mix is a hazy and hypnotic plugg-meets-drill beat featuring Rhodes-esque instrumentation and electrifying mechanical percussion. “WOOF MEOW” is one of those tracks that is somehow perfect for an expensive night out or a quiet night at home – because no matter what context you listen to Saiming in, you’re going to enjoy it no matter what. This song came out in February, and since then Saiming has also released “Night Tube” with Zuko Rosemeid – a lo-fi yet cinematic banger that proves that tracks like “WOOF MEOW” are far from a fluke.

Late To The Party-[Emei]

One of the best songs you’ll hear this week is by an artist who goes by the name of Emei. I’ve had my eye on her for some time now and today, I’m hype to bring her on to the pages of Lyrical Lemonade for her latest song called, “Late To The Party”. This exceptional song co-written by Emei and Jamie Gelman + Lucas Sim is one that you’re going to have on repeat for a while and it’s due to the infectious production by Lucas and cleverly crafter melodies by Emei herself. On top of that, the hook and chorus are immensely catchy which makes this just a really fun one to indulge in. With only 2 songs on her current discography though, it’s only right to wonder what is this up and comer cooking up, but this new one should be enough to hold you over as she keeps releasing music. Myself and the Lyrical family are excited for what she’s got coming in the pipeline and you all should be as well! I’ve attached the Spotify link down below, so give this one a listen and let us know what you think!
