Out of Northwest London is an unsigned emcee and actress named Laughta.
A member of the High Bar Nationals collective since 2011; Laughta met and began collaborating with fellow artist and producer Str8face, who helped her create her debut EP ‘Unstoppable’, released in July of 2012. During that time, the diversity of her stage appearances ranged from plays and musicals, to wins at SB:TV’s Peacemix and Unsigned Hype (with High Bar Nation), to interviews alongside the likes of Tinchy Stryder on ITN and London360. Each had a definitive impact on Laughta’s artistic expression, though none moreso than in March of 2013, when the chance to open for US Rap Star Joe Budden at East London’s Club XOYO, inspired a new level of intensity and passion for her craft.
The progression of her musical tastes and expressive skills enabled Laughta to discover new talents within herself that far exceeded the Grime genre she started out in. That new mindset came at exactly the right time. Now back with her second EP, ‘Most Wanted’; Laughta is ready for an entirely new phase in her musical career.
Currently preparing to compete in July’s Rapstar competition where Akala – one of Laughta’s lyrical inspirations – will headline the final; this highly respected Rapper is the only female in her category to reach this stage. The following week, this hugely talented female will headline her own EP launch for the very first time. With special guest support from fellow up and coming artist Lady Lykez amongst many others, there can be no question as to why Laughta is earning rave reviews from fellow artists and Industry heavyweights alike.
Raye 6, the sexy siren known for her electric, in your face persona, reveals a softer side in her latest release “Lifted Sand”. On a recent UK tour with ILuvLive, Raye 6 had the chance to record with founder of Baby People UK and renowned producer Baby J (Amy Whinehouse, Dead Prez, Estelle, Mexican Kids At Home). Written and composed in the beautiful countryside of Derby, “Lifted Sand”, the infectious esoteric musical piece poses a few questions “who do you love/who do you trust/is there a fire/burning me up?” The poetic chorus “lifted on a faded grain of sand” is a description of love so faded the only thing left holding it up is a grain of sand. Filmed by Ne$$ of Weekend Money, the scenic visual for Lifted Sand was shot on location at Castle Ashby De La Zouch in Leicestershire, United Kingdom
“During a private listening session of the soon-to-be titled project between Baby J & Raye 6 ( due out later this year), we chose a few favorites, “Women Beat The Men” , “Enuff of You” and “I Like” as single material.” WBS Studios
I went to a private invite party for Ms. Raye 6’s birthday party and her friend Instagram’d this which sums up so much about her.
“Women are going to form a chain, a greater sisterhood than the world has ever known!” Sisterhood is real!! —
Raye6 is explosive, mysterious and can be down right demanding, but she deserves it. (in our mind at least) She recently went to the UK for a mini tour and recording session… which was a personal present from a dear loved one which we thought was super special and she is about to drop the body of work titled , “Journey to Lifted Sand”. A UK blogger stated, “The fourth performance of the night, was from an amazing young woman, with an incredible and powerful voice that blew the audience away, if you havent guessed by now.. I’m talking about the wonderful Raye 6. Coming all the way from the US of A, Raye 6 put on a great show, that had the audience woo’ing and ooh’ing. Raye 6 bought a different type of energetic vibe to the show that intrigued the audience. Her voice as well as her style was very unique and had many people asking questions such as ‘Who is she?’ and ‘Why have I not heard of her before?’.”

Her (Elena Tonra) voice is so soothing and reminds me a little of The Cure or The Sundays. I love their music and look forward to hearing more.
