ARTIST OF THE WEEK: No. 122 Léks Rivers

Having spent much of the last few years honing his craft, 23-year-old West Londoner Léks Rivers (pronounced Lakes Rivers) has finally made the first big moved of his career by releasing his debut EP.

Since signing to cult label Black Butter, the self-taught multi-instrumentalist / producer has been making waves with his raw and impassioned take on soul music. Inspired by the contemporary sounds of the capital, his new EP 'Badlands' aims to take the traditional approach to RnB and up the ante to the nth degree to create something truly unique and exciting.

With a range of instrumentation and heavy beats, Léks Rivers is one of those artists that you can't afford to ignore. And with 'Badlands' now receiving huge acclaim, the artist is readying the release of his debut album for 2017.
