In between walking on the runway for fashion houses like Burberry and Gucci, Ruben Pol finds time to create stunning new music. His most recent effort is “Bed Sheets,” and he has Tom Martin helping him on the production front.
Classically trained in an array of instruments, Pol’s vocals can be heard with their almost ethereal tones here, drifting throughout his simple and stunning electronic layers. With some brushes of guitar and piano peppered across to carve out a melody, “Bed Sheets” shimmers from start to finish.

UZ is an artist who has changed the face of trap music since he first emerged on to the scene. Revolutionizing the genre with his own spicy series “Trap Shit,” the Frenchman went on to release with a plethora of labels before creating his own platform. Quality Goods Records is where he has released his newest album The Rebirth, which signals a pivotal point in his career.
The artist is in the midst of a busy year; as well as releasing this LP, he has taken off on Part 1 of a tour across America and Canada, and rebranded his DJ mask. With Part 2 set for later in the year, we urge you to get yourself a copy of this release today. There are some blistering, knife-edge classic trap pieces, whilst UZ proves he is also capable of making something simplistic and ethereal in the form of the closing tune “Castle” ft. Nevve.
The Rebirth deserves a full, uninterrupted listen. You can do so by hitting the link below, or buying a copy here.
