30 seconds interview: Ember Phoenix

Ember Phoenix

Trinidad-born West London rapper Ember Phoenix blends his love for US R&B with a uniquely British style for maximum musical impact.

His culturally diverse background can be heard in music which draws on trap, classic hip hop as well as more traditional R&B slickness. While critics have claimed fans of Chance the Rapper will be intrigued by this new talent, he’s very much his own man. To add more fuel to the hype fire, Ember’s also been co-signed by Grammy nominated producer Beast, who shows up on an instrumental of recent single Jodeci.
