Goya Gumbani: Born to an English-Jamaican mother and Guyanese-South  American father in Brooklyn – NY, Goya’s relocation to South  London in his teens opened a new world of possibilities.  Operating within various collectives throughout the city, Goya’s decade-long development as an artist and producer reached a  breakthrough when he released his debut self-produced EP  ‘Morta & More Doves’; a dedication to his sister who passed away in 2018. The release began a prolific period for Goya,  releasing four further projects in the years to come: three mixtapes — ‘Children of Ra’ produced by Rago Foot, ‘The  Lesser-Known’ produced by Kiina and ‘HGR Presents Thousand Months’ produced by Hallowed Ground Recording  — and an EP called ‘GG & Bori Steps Across The Pond’  produced by Bori from NY. ‘Sinu Metu’, a single from the EP,  was chosen as Pitchfork’s must-hear rap song of the day,  remarking that the track was “an introduction to a duo with chemistry”. Goya’s admiration for the craft of music production led him to give the producer of each project equal billing to himself. “What are the words without the beat?” he asks.  Despite his transatlantic upbringing, the flavour of Goya’s work is rooted in NYC hip hop storytelling. As part of a recent profile,  he was named in the NME 100 list of 2021 & IDs one to watch.  Goya also performed two songs in session for COLORS in Berlin.

Yaya  Bey: The Things I Can’t Take With Me is the newest release from multidisciplinary artist and singer-songwriter Yaya Bey, out on April 9th. The self-produced, six-track EP follows her last album, 2020’s intimate and political Madison Tapes, which received critical praise from Pitchfork (7.7), FADER, Afropunk, Noisey, and more. Following the same spirit of her previous projects, The Things I Can’t Take With Me searches the deeply personal and refreshingly honest truths of Black womanhood and love. The project’s first single “fxck it then” radiates as an affirmative anthem for rediscovering your shine, reminding everyone that Yaya Bey “ain’t average.” It’s accompanied by new collage work created by Yaya herself, and a music video directed by Morgan B. Powell. “The video was a true labor of love,” Bey said, describing the visuals as “an ode to hood joints.” The nostalgic super 8 film aesthetic features styling by Alexea Brown and glimpses into Bey’s polaroid photography.
