Lava La Rue
ESNS: 2021
Born and raised in West London, Lava La Rue was exposed to the vibrant soundsystem culture, banging rave music and many fusions. This melting pot shines through, from the lo-fi, hip hop, jazz and neo soul of 2018’s Letra EP, to tougher, trap-inspired beats and R&B productions on the Stitches mixtape. On forthcoming EP Butterfly, recorded with producers Isom Innis, Dan Holloway and Courage, the 22-year-old breaks new ground by discussing love. Lava describes it as her attempt to redefine “what queer music can be; setting the agenda for queer music in the 20’s.”
