Over the last few years, more cities across the nation have been piercing through the music scene with a flurry of unquestionable talent. Many notable budding artists have been putting their ends on the map and pushing the capital aside, one of which is Manchester. Utilizing his skills as an A&R, DJ Win, primarily known for his work alongside hit-maker Aitch, has taken it upon himself to gather some of the best talents in the Northern city for his forthcoming EP. The project, available this Spring, is set to shine a light on some of Manchester’s best up-and-coming talents.

Setting the tone with “Genius,” alongside July 7, this single is a hypnotic and sultry release that’s a hybrid of genres. Underpinned with a hip-moving production, July 7 weaves his silky vocals throughout to create a wheel-up-worthy and irresistible track. He sings, “I fell in love with her body now she thinks she’s somebody.”

“I’ve always wanted to make an infectious record that hooks you as soon as you press play. We channeled that with ‘Genius.’ The hook is catchy, the production is hypnotizing, and most importantly, it gets you moving. Cooking this one up with DJ Win was a movie and his taste is undeniable. Straight out of Manchester, this is the new bop to tear up the clubs.” – July 7 stated

July 7 started as a bedroom producer making beats for international stars such as Young Thug, Travis Scott, and T.I. Eventually, he stepped out as an artist in his own right and quickly accumulated millions of streams. Known for his single, “Waistline,” July’s signature sultry sound has gained him a growing fanbase who are eagerly awaiting his next move.

“The aim of this project was to showcase unsigned talent in Manchester. There is a lot of talent but because of the infrastructure of the scene, people’s dedication, or confidence within themselves, I don’t think certain people are getting the recognition that they should be. There’s a lot of space in the industry to have these artists there so I thought why not.” – DJ Win stated

DJ Win’s profound talent has seen him travel the world and in turn, build an ever-growing fanbase. Having a love for music from a youthful age, it was inevitable that one day he would make a name for himself in the industry. With a larger-than-life personality, the 25-year-old has collaborated with the likes of North Face, Nando’s, Footaslyum, Manchester United, BoohooMAN, and more. Known for being Aitch’s DJ, a model, and an entrepreneur, Win got his first taste of being an executive producer back in 2021 with the release of his debut single, “Stepped In,” alongside Birmingham’s Tana and Marnz. Gearing up for the release of his own project, DJ Win is ready to showcase what Manchester has to offer.
