Renelle 893 is a familiar name to anyone plugged into Brighton’s hip-hop scene, since the South Londoner has been gracing stages in this part of the world for a while now.

As such, the Mango Juice released Everything Is Temporary feels long-awaited, with Beau Peep providing production for Renelle’s lyricism, vision and self-reflective tales. You can hear his grime influence with his flow on Swim Out, but for the most part this is straight hip-hop from a guy who told us in ISSUE FIVE that he’ll rap on almost anything.
‘My true love is old school hip-hop but u might see me on grime, trap, dubstep, house or disco, too,’ he said. But as mentioned, he’s closer to home here with some downtempo rap. Ramzey comes in with two features, rounding off a strong EP that illustrates Renelle’s potential.
