The Irish rapper came to international attention last year after the release of her debut mixtape Go Bravely caught the attention of media across the world from NPR (“a limber lyricist”) to The Guardian (One To Watch) (“turning heads from the outset”) to NME (“the name Denise Chaila holds regal status”) and France 24 (“Known initially as a rising star of Irish hip-hop, Chaila’s mixtape ‘Go Bravely’ has now propelled her to the top of the firmament”). In Ireland, she was the highest-charting female solo artist in 2020 and Go Bravely won the Choice Music Prize (Ireland’s equivalent of the Mercury Prize) album of the year award – making it the first time an artist had received the award before releasing their debut album.
Lex Amor is a Rapper, Producer, Engineer, Sound Designer and DJ from North London. Lex is building her reputation as a musical connoisseur and purveyor of soulful, warm- groove laden hip-hop and thoughtful lyricism. Amor first surfaced in 2016 with her characterful slant on descriptive hip-hop. The calm yet powerful cadence of her delivery is already cultivating a cult following; whether they first heard her as part of the SXWKS Collective, her monthly radio show; Mellowdic – or indeed her music.
Carla Prata is a 21 year old Angolan-Portuguese R&B artist, who sings / raps in both Portuguese and English.
Born in Brixton, she moved to Angola as a teenager, where she quickly found her footing in Kizomba, a genre of music native to the country and described as having a Latin flow with African rhythm. She is now London based and her sound has taken an influence from the crossover points between UK hip-hop, afroswing and contemporary R&B. She soon caught the attention of Colors Studios, who asked her to record a show in November last year.
