North London's Tau Benah has dropped his phenomenal debut single "Hey Hey", premiered by i-D magazine. Produced by fellow Londoner R-Kay, the mellow, groovy instrumental sets a wholesome, relaxed vibe; a perfect Sunday afternoon tune. "Hey Hey" is the first we've heard from the new Creative Elevation recruit and what a track to open with.
Tau Benah's "genre-bending" style radiates talent. He oozes timelessness, with a warming soulful tone which is paired with refreshing female vocals in the second half of the song; the vocal combination binds the song together. An entrancing electric guitar gives the track a blues perspective, creating further variation and distinction from current artists emerging in the UK hiphop scene.
I'm seriously excited to see what else Benah's got up his sleeve for the future; definitely in the UK's ones to watch. You don't want to miss out on this:
