Rising UK rapper Readey has returned with his brand-new mixtape, Between The Lines. The independent artist from Walsall has been going from strength to strength since arriving on the music scene in 2019, with his audience growing with each release. The project is led by new single “Simplify”, which has already rocketed to become his most streamed track to date on Spotify, paving the way for Between The Lines to follow suit and round out his 2021 in spectacular fashion.
Inspired by the likes of UK artists such as Ghetts and Devlin, Readey’s infectious energy combined with his love for soulful and melodic tunes has helped him establish his own sound, which he describes as a fusion of rap, garage, grime and everything in between, which is reflected on the new mixtape. Delivering tracks that are smooth and expressive such as “Closer” alongside club-ready bangers such as “Tremors”, the project highlights his versatility and ability to excel in more than one style.
Speaking further on the mixtape, Readey says, “Between The Lines is a compilation of songs that I feel will truly define me as an artist. I fully indulged in the creative process to create the project, writing and recording all nine tracks at home. Some of the tracks are simply me projecting a certain mood or vibe that I was feeling at the moment of inspiration, and others are a deeper analysis of my personal emotions and life experiences. I just hope that people will feel something when they are listening.”
