In our new segment 'Artist Profile' we highlight, and speak to, a new artist who we're excited about and introduce them to the rest of the world. This week, it's Barney Artist.


East Londoner Barney Artist fuses 90's-inspired hip-hop with jazz for a refreshing sound that has placed him at the forefront of the UK's emerging hip-hop scene.

Taking inspiration from artists such as A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots, Kano and Ghostpoet, the artist released the 'Bespoke' mixtape in 2014, following it up with 'Painting Sounds' in 2016 - featuring collaborations with the likes of Jay Prince, Jordan Rakei, Nick Brewer, Alfa Mist and Tom Misch.

With a new album due out this year, he recently dropped two new tracks, including 'Rose Thorn (feat. Dornik)' which has him back on our radar.

Listen to James Gilmore introduce Barney Artist as our latest 'Artist Profile' and speak to him about his musical inspirations and his journey so far.

Myles' Top 3: Travis Scott, 23 Unofficial, Médine

10th August 2018 | Music

It’s been a while since Myles McCaulskey has picked his top songs of the week... however, after talking about the lack of ‘Summer Songs’ in 2018 so far on his show (Saturdays from 5pm on W!ZARD Radio Station), it's time to bring up the topic once again.

Each week, Myles looks at his favourite 3 songs of the week, and who knows... they may end up being some of the songs of the year.

Pick One: Travis Scott - No Bystanders (feat. Shack Wes & Juice WRLD)


'Astroworld' was an album a lot of people had been waiting for. Once it finally dropped we were blessed with a 17-track project, with beat-switches, crazy features and memorable moments. It requires you to listen to the album a few times to take all of it in.

On my first play through I got to Track 6 'No Bystanders' with Shack Wes & Juice WRLD. I had this on repeat most of the day, and it took some time to finish the album after that. Shack Wes adds the hype, Juice the melody and Travis’ flow on the first verse is probably my favourite on the album thus far.

The album is still new and other songs may overtake this one, but for now No Bystanders is my top pick.

Pick Two: 23 Unofficial – Mamacita


23 Unofficial was previously on my show and I did ask him to drop a video for this song. The song just has that chilled melodic tone and is a nice contrast to some of his previous releases in the last couple of months.

Just like 'Astroworld', 'The Unofficial Album' (EP) is still very new and tracks like ‘Ride For Me’ could make an appearance…
