Concise is a rapper hailing from London, known for his deep wordplay and aggressive delivery. Having received positive reception for both his recent ‘Blackbox‘ freestyle and recent visuals for ‘Senzu Bean’ this is an artist to watch.
Beginning his foray into songwriting and rapping at secondary school, Concise sidelined his musical ability while at school and university, but never gave up his ambitions for music. After university, Concise began involving himself in music, with more to come! Drawing inspiration from a wide range of artists, particularly Lupe Fiasco & Scorcher, this is reflected in his music.

Emerging artist Gesu Ace is a 25 year old London based songwriter with a uniquely dark and atmospheric sound designed for Fashion and Film.
Gesu’s music serves as a poetic exposé of life, love, lust and death, drawing upon distorted reflections of religion, spirituality, relationships, beauty and the art of creation itself. Inspired by an eclectic mix of ancient mythology, poets such as William Blake and John Milton, rappers like Joe Budden and Pusha T and singers such as Taylor Momsen from the Pretty Reckless, Gesu crafts emotive compositions that depend on the synergy between the lyrical and the visual.
Gesu’s first release, Pandora’s Box, was commissioned for a documentary feature film currently in post production and narrated by the legendary broadcaster Larry King.
