IRL - Michigan
#11 on our 2018 “Who’s On Deck” list is Synth sensation hailing from Flint, Michigan, IRL. She is truly a one of a kind artist who has slowly but steadily been taking the underground by storm. Don't be surprised when you hear other artists starting to sound like IRL. Blending components of synth, Hip-Hop, RnB & Pop, she puts herself in her own lane. We can honestly say that we have not heard someone like her. IRL may just be the breathe of fresh air that music industry needs in 2018.
As 2017 progressed, after starting the year solo, IRL found herself a strong management team with DreamTeam Management. Dream Team currently fulfills the managerial roles for IRL and as their platform grows daily, this will only help IRL get heard by the audience she deserves to be heard by. She has quickly been gaining followers on Instagram but still manages to keep a mysterious vibe about her. You always want to hear more and you always want to learn more when hearing IRL on a track or just simply flipping through her social media.
This timing couldn’t be more perfect because IRL’s debut project, “VICES" just dropped today. The 6 track EP features only 2 artist, allen wright & lil rick. You can hear the passion in IRL’s voice as she propels her cadence over these ambient instrumentals. As much as you want to chill and relax to IRL’s music when tracks like "VICES" & "crzy on u" comes on you can’t help but want to dance. It brings you back a few generations while keeping you in tune with the modern era.
IRL also has a couple songs with #15 on our list, Rioma, so be sure to check those out after you bump VICES !
