With his recent acclaimed debut single “East Side,” which has received over 500,000 streams of the track and video so far, 26-year-old Scribz introduced himself to the world as an artist alongside a producer. Hailing from East London, but residing between London and LA, he has worked with artists such as Khalid, H.E.R., J Hus and Cardi B over the last few years and has established himself as an acclaimed award-winning producer and songwriter, impressively achieving two Grammy awards along the way.
Featuring British rapper Headie One, new single “Impress Me” mixes trap-influenced beats with an assured and expressive rap flow about fabricated appearances and false impressions and continues the introduction to his fresh and unique sound.
Says Scribz, “I was a fan of Headie’s from ‘Know Better’ times. We linked up in London, ran through some ideas and this beat stuck. Headie started vibing on the beat and pretty quickly we got the majority of ‘Impress Me’ down. The concept speaks for itself, but for me it’s a reflection of the world today, where a lot of people feel the pressure to impress one another.”
With an energizing, edgy and current sound that blends multi-genres with R&B and Rap, Scribz Riley is one of the most exciting new talents this year. Count these songs as your first true introduction to the artist – with more music coming soon, this is just the beginning of a new chapter in his exciting musical career.
