NiNE8 are music industry misfits. Since banding together nearly six years ago, the London-based collective, comprised of eight uber-talented late teens and twenty-somethings, has been perfecting its DIY sound.
With a series of alt hip-hop releases and sleek production in their arsenal, NiNE8 have gone from music college pals who liked to jam, to international names found jetting to studios in Los Angeles and winning adoration from the likes of Clairo and pop queen Billie Eilish.
NiNE8 was co-founded by rapper and visual artist Lava La Rue in 2014. La Rue met Biig Piig in music class in college when they were both just 16. Piig is known for her soft vocals, switching between English and Spanish at lightning speed. Also in that music class: Lloyd, aka Mac Wetha, a beatmaker and producer who has worked on solo tracks for Piig.
19-year-old MC and vocalist Nayana IZ first saw La Rue perform at a Grenfell fundraiser, before introducing herself. Then we have rappers, LorenzoRSV, known for his grittier style; Bone Slim, the masked storyteller; Nige, aka DJ Sukha, and model, MC and producer L!BAAN.
Having already spent time on the road with scene-leaders Clairo and Omar Apollo, Nashville’s Dreamer Boy is making waves with his fun bops inspired by puppy dogs, romance and daydreams. It’s all very warm and reassuring, in a coming-of-age, friends-for-life, everyone-goes-through-stuff kinda way. Currently working on the follow-up to his 2018 debut album ‘Love, Nostalgia’, he’s an exciting prospect for the year ahead.
Only few artists have had such a meteoric rise in recognition as the twenty year old bedroom pop singer Clairo. In the past few months, Clairo has gone from an underground singer to a lo-fi pop sensation with millions of views on YouTube and thousands of followers on social media.
Clairo’s music is perfect precisely because it doesn’t go with anything: it’s sweet pop with guitars instead of bedroom electronic beats; it’s young and fresh without falling into urban clichés; it’s new but it makes you feel at home.

Wallows are currently writing and prepping new tracks with plans to release more new music soon.
