Trill Xoe

Muyiwa Akhigbe And Rhye Ali Release Joint “Conversations” EP

Muyiwa Akhigbe, a gifted soul singer who now doubles as a rapper has teamed up with rising lyricist, Rhye Ali and producer, Trill Xoe to create and release a new joint EP titled “Conversations“. This project which is actually Muyiwa’s sophomore EP is a highly experimental one for the act as he leaves his comfort zone to create a thematic hip-hop project with a skilled rapper.

True to its name, the 9-track EP opens with a recorded phone conversation in which Muyiwa reaches out to his partner-in-crime Rhye and convinces him to work with him on this project. This, however, is just the first of five conversations in the project, each one recorded over the instrumental of the following record. Through these conversations and records, these artists present a soulful realness and detailing to their realities as youths and young creatives in this country.

This is, therefore, a highly relatable project as the pair rap and discusses topics and themes that every twenty-something in this city should familiar with.  As mentioned earlier, this EP is solely produced by Trill Xoe and engineered by David Rotimi. Enjoy.

Here For You – AUSTIIN ft Tieno

Hip-Hop/Soul Singer, AUSTIIN, is a budding Nigerian recording artist, songwriter and producer.

His initial releases include tracks Trouble (featuring Buju and Essienwhich he only has credits for as a producer.

His debut Single Here For You (featuring Tieno) was released in December 2017 and it quickly became a fan fave.

AUSTIIN has been consistent with his craft in 2018 releasing Thrills, originally a prelude to his 2019 project titled WRATH OF AUGUST. The track was produced and engineered by producer and frequent collaborator, Trill Xoe.

Thrills sees AUSTIIN stay true to his experimental trap sound as he delivers dreamy vocals over Xoe’s harrowing chords and hard-hitting subs. The dolorous shadow cast over the entire track by the production is the perfect backdrop for AUSTIIN’s emotive tale-telling of the struggle to make it in his city, Lagos. He sings of his plan to “make a milli off a sick deal” and how far he is willing to go to get through the struggle and achieve success in a difficult terrain.

Thrills is yet another testament to his remarkable chemistry with Trill Xoe.

Love Like This – Trill Xoe ft. Tonero & Rilwan

We cannot overemphasize how much we enjoy finding new music; it’s probably starting to sound like a scratchy vinyl record, but here we are. Another gem has been found.

The leading single off producer Trill Xoe’s debut EP Blood, Sweat and TearsLove Like This is beautiful. The R&B joint produced by Trill Xoe features fire vocals from Tonero (especially) and Rilwan. On the hook, Tonerolays some piercing melodies and descriptive lyrics as he discovers love in the club and how much more it can become while Rilwan struggles to get a hold of his current situationships and is conflicted between affection and isolation. For such an amazing track, it’s no wonder Love Like This is such a fan favourite and the love struggle is just one of the many themes expressed on the amazing compilation of work that is Blood, Sweat and Tears which features vocal talent and flow from Nessa, PsychoYP, Barelyanyhook, Foresythe, Bryan the Mensah, Zirra, Ocho, Kizz Ernie, Oma Mahmud and of course Tonero and Rilwan.
