BERWYN, full name Berwyn Du Bois, is a Trinidad (Caribbean) rapper and producer living in East London. He crafts beautiful songs that fuse hip hop bars with the poetic lyricism distinct to RnB.
Having led a life of adversity, he now channels those emotions into his music.
He shared his debut mixtape DEMOTAPE/VEGA in 2020. It was soon backed up with ‘VINYL’, a beautiful RnB track with a stunning beat. It’s now amassed more than 1.6 million streams.
Now, BERWYN’s mixtape, TAPE 2/FORMALHAUT is out today, 18th June. Stream it here.
We’re hopeful for an Aussie tour once the world ~returns to normal~.
BERWYN manages to combine the emotive RnB sounds Frank Ocean and Drake made their names on with the satisfying bars typical of AJ Tracey and Stormzy. He offers up a new kind of complexity in his lyrics and manages to craft catchy hooks while offering a heartfelt story to listeners.
