Hometown: Rubee Rayne is a singer-songwriter and rapper from Berkshire. She was born in Nigeria before moving to the UK at the age of 10.

Style: With influences including Janelle Monae, MIA, Kanye West and The xx, Rubee crafts a futuristic mix of indie, RnB and hip hop. Youth is taken from Rayne’s first EP, Forever Golden and is stacked full of interesting moments and melodies showcasing a young artist’s inventive perspective.

You need to know: We’ve met Rubee before when she played on the BBC Introducing stage at Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Carlisle, alongside Grimsby rapper Linc.

Supported by:  In October last year, Rubee uploaded a couple of tracks to the Uploader and has since been championed by her local show in Berkshire, Yasser on the Asian Network and DJ Target on 1Xtra.
