Eight emerging artists you need to hear: June 2024

Things are happening for ROZET. In April, she recorded a guest mix for Rinse FM France, a swirling, rhythmically broad mix of R&B-adjacent tunes that alternates between swoon and stomp; in May, she released a similarly-minded single, ‘Thinking A Lot’, on Young Art Records, produced by the dream team of Jesse Boykins III, Machinedrum, Richard T. and MeLo-X. Another single and full EP are due soon, then two more singles and yet another full EP in late summer and early autumn, followed by a tour with Young Art founder, TOKiMONSTA. Not only that, but her vocals also feature on a single with Machinedrum, the floaty pop-meets-d&b cut ‘Rise’, off of his new Ninja Tune long-player ‘3FOR82’. Phew!

Raised in Miami, ROZET’s a self-described “global citizen” — and her music reflects that freeform aesthetic, with the sound of an artist searching for deep emotions and hidden truths. An interviewer once asked her “Who is ROZET?”, and her reply, in part, was “ROZET is a wildflower. The part of me that is unpredictable and free. A flower that shows up wherever and however feels most natural in response to the season.” Ever growing, ever blooming — her season, it seems, is right now. BRUCE TANTUM
