London has arguably the best music scene around, with thousands of talented musicians emerging every day, most of which are unsigned acts waiting for their big break.
Unsigned Friday brings you the very best unsigned music artists from around the capital, as well as giving these acts a platform to promote their music.
This week, getwestlondon 's Emily Chudy caught up with D-Rymez, an Ealing -based Hip Hop and Grime artist who was previously featured on the Unsigned Friday column in February . D-Rymez returns to talk about his brand new mixtape.
The 24-year-old artist has been creating music since primary school. His newest mixtape, Terminal 1: Gate 24, has just been released, and is already garnering good reviews and radio attention.
D Rymez said: "In the beginning when I was promoting the mixtape, my fans and followers wanted to know what the meaning was behind the name.
"As a person, I love to travel the world and get inspired, that's the same thing I want my listeners to do with this mixtape. I want you to take a trip from the First Terminal and leave at Gate 24, which is my current age. So basically, I am taking you on a trip through my life right now."
The musician collaborated with other up-and-coming and unsigned artists, as well as a number of producers, to create the 10-track mixtape.
The rapper said: "The brand new mixtape features artists and singers such as Luci Monet, a soulful R'n'B singer from London, George Ed, a great singer from Bristol, Laioung, an international Rapper who featured on the debut single from the mixtape 'How We Roll', and Yates, a rapper from Birmingham.
"I really wanted to get up-and-coming talent on the mixtape instead of chasing artists with an existing buzz. Talent is talent regardless."
The album includes several singles, including How We Roll, which was released in early 2016. The mixtape comes from a variety of inspirations, from other artists to the musician's experiences travelling around the world.
D Rymez said: "The inspiration behind the songs really came from my experiences, the things I have personally been through, and what I brought back with me from travelling the world with my friends.
"Other concepts of the mixtape come from the heart, such as personal relationships, not being at home as much or seeing my family because I'm always on the move, and highlighting my progression as an artist."
D Rymez said: "The mixtape took about seven to eight months for me to put together; I had so many songs I could have released it ages ago, but I wanted it to be perfect.
"Whilst working on the project I gradually found the right beats and matched them to the right artists who would suit the track.
"I met George Ed at one of my performances in Wembley , he came to watch me perform with a good friend Diako who is a member of the RNDM collaborative and producer of the track 'Moved On'.
"Laioung, a good friend and artist who I met through producer Mr. Mulligan. In the studio he picked out a beat, we wrote to it and made a crazy track called 'How We Roll' with the music video in Toronto, Canada."
So far, the musician's mixtape has been featured on radio stations including Westside FM, Croydon Radio, The Beat LDN, Itch FM, Hoxton Radio and more.
D Rymez said: "The response to the mixtape has been amazing. Easily my best work yet to date. I have been touring different radio stations... talking about the mixtape.
"I really love the response and I want as many people to hear it as possible."
A reviewer for MTV said of the mixtape: "Terminal 1: Gate 24 is a ten-track mixtape full of heartfelt bars and weighty production that really makes D-Rymez stand out from the crowd.
"Gritty Trap and straight Hip Hop vibes are laced throughout this offering and it's clearly a sound where D-Rymez feels right at home as he excels on every track with his self assured raps and adventurous wordplay."
