Mixcloud teams up with W Hotels to release FUTURE RISING Volume 1

Last year we teamed up with W Hotels to launch an ambitious project aimed at championing the artists, DJs and creative leaders of tomorrow. So far with FUTURE RISING, we’ve hosted seven events across two continents and we’ve connected over 20 rising stars with music fans around the world.

Today that ambition continues with FUTURE RISING Volume 1, a compilation of eight tracks by some of the most talented emerging artists from London, Moscow, Istanbul and more. The compilation is available now on all major music streaming websites.

S4U – Twice
Jengi Beats – Wisdom
Alizzz – Better Than You (feat. Promnite)
Phil Gerus – Let Me Be The One
Kerem Akdag – Between House
Jeftuz – I Need You
Phil Gerus – She Struts Her Stuff
Cee – Everyday (feat. Vendetta)

Listen to the full compilation now on Mixcloud:

Volume 1 features the likes of London-based alternative hip-hop duo S4U, whose debut release ‘Brazil EP’ captured the attention of Pharrell Williams, Phil Taggart and Huw Stevens. Representing The Netherlands, Jengi Beats and Jeftuz are two of the most promising artists to emerge from a country famous for producing underground talent.

Barcelona-based producer and Mad Decent alumni, Alizzz, also features on the compilation with his track ‘Better Than You (feat. Promnite)’. The rising star is making a name for himself around the world with his pop-influenced future RnB sounds.

The compilation also features the jazzy sounds of Istanbul’s Kerem Akdag, classically-trained pianist and Moscow local Phil Gerus, and the new track from Kuala Lumpur-based producer, Cee, titled ‘Everyday (feat. Vendetta)’.

You can also listen to FUTURE RISING Volume 1 on Spotify, Apple Music and all major music streaming websites.


FUTURE RISING is a new platform from W Hotels and Mixcloud that engages and champions the creative leaders of tomorrow across the artistic sphere – from musicians and DJs, to visual artists and videographers, to creative entrepreneurs and innovators.

At the heart of FUTURE RISING is the ambition to identify and champion future creative leaders, cultivate new talent, foster craft and collaboration, and provide a framework and network for them to succeed on a global scale.
