Pxrv releases Hip-Hop and R&B tinged single ‘Summertime’
Pxrv never wants to be boxed off in one genre, nor succumb to genre barriers. It’s quite clear that he’s in his own lane, wanting to create something completely different. Hailing from West London his music represents the city - diverse, vibrant and interesting. Hints of Hip-Hop, R&B and Afro-Swing, and a slight nod to his classical training are all influences that shine through in his music.
His latest offering ‘Summertime’ showcases his unique offering. An Afro Hip-Hop facade, the track has tinges of R&B and an obvious Hip-Hop influence. Heartwarming synths glisten in the mix, dancing around hard-hitting drums which pierce through the track. Cartier Ricks and LoudB Muni bring their UK Hip-Hop identity by penning some well-penned, straight-talking verse. Infectious vocal melodies can be found in the chorus, which turns the track into anthemic offering.
Speaking to us about the release he says: “Summertime falls into genres like Pop, Afroswing, and UK Rap/Hip Hop. Taking inspiration from artists like Burna Boy and Wizkid, the tracks heads an afro style hip hop beat with vocals from Cartier Ricks and LoadB Muni finely polishing the track with that touch of UK Hip Hop.”
Part of the "LoadB" collective, Pxrv is the in-house track engineer and composer and their first collaboration came as the track entitled "Callin" in 2019 with Cartier Ricks and Jmuni (LoadB Muni). Since then the team has been hard at work in building a catalogue of quality music. With “Callin” getting some plays from some pretty serious tastemakers, it’s all up from here.
