To soundtrack all your afterparties for the foreseeable future, get to grips with the laidback lo-fi sounds of Leyma – the vision of east London teen Max Hanley.

The self-produced rapper has been making waves with his DIY fusion of hip-hop, indie and R&B, thrown together with a layered production and soft, introspective lyrics – an irresistible documentation of the struggles of youth culture.

And the artist has now dropped “Cuppa”, the lead single from his highly-anticipated sophomore EP, “L O N G D A Y S” – and it’s more of the same hazy, homegrown goodness.

“‘Cuppa’ was one of those songs I wrote instantly once I had the beat,” explains Leyma. “The guitar is a curtesy of Harry Westcott (a major influence on the sound of this project). After I slapped some 808s underneath those chords, I just wrote what came to me. It’s a song of insecurity. With two guest verses (Marga, JK) varying this theme across different topics.”

Listen to “Cuppa” below…

Leyma will headline Camden Assembly on Friday 8th November
