EP Review: ‘Alive’ – Sugarae


There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing a talented artist return to music after taking some time away from the industry, that’s why we’re buzzing to have this new EP, Alive, from Sugarae.

A promising British singer, rapper and producer from the West Midlands, Sugarae first burst onto the scene in 2010 as a grime producer. Then after a hiatus from music, Sugarae eventually made the transition from producer to artist and he’s never looked back since.

Sugarae was always destined to be creating music, growing up in a musical household and learning how to play piano at a young age. He then went on to teach himself how to use FL Studio and Logic Pro before making professional beats for grime sets. It’s this upbringing that formed Sugarae into the artist he is today, leading him to creative one of his most dynamic efforts to-date: the Alive EP.

Alive is a powerful, heartfelt proclamation inspired by Suga overcoming, surviving and re-building after a traumatic experience. Taking elements from UK Drill and melodic rap sounds, this anthemic EP was created to uplift anyone listening with messages of perseverance, overcoming adversity, and hope for brighter days.

The six track project keeps you locked in from start to finish. The production is incredibly slick and Suga’s vocals float over the beats with ease. He shows just how dynamic he is on this one, switching up from melody to straight bars and back again in a flash.

With his Alive EP Sugarae has made his mark on the underground scene and flagged himself as one of the most talented up and coming artists in the UK right now. The six track project is absolute fire start to finish. Sugarae will 100% be a name you’re hearing more of very soon…
