futuretense serves up more free music – this time, brazen electronic tunes from Princess Trium and FRBDN NCHTR’s punk, cloud rap and trap.

FRBDN NCHTR (pronounced forbidden enchanter,) previously known as Fred Jones, was born and bred in Newham, east London. His sound merges the raw Newham grime patterns of artists like Kano and Griminal with cloud rap melodies, playfully arranged on top of heavy-hitting punk, futuristic trap and nostalgic bedroom pop fusions.

The artist’s start in music came after a life-changing incident, where he was run over and left for dead. After several hours of surgery, he delved into the world of philosophy, spirituality and anthropology, and decided that music was going to be his life.

Princess Trium brings a refreshing, bold and prolific take to electronic music. The half-Nigerian, half-Congolese artist mixes a melting pot of genres: electro, hip-hop, funk, global music and house. Her music draws on influences from Fela Kuti, M.I.A, SOPHIE, Timbaland, The Neptunes, and Tyler, the Creator.

Trium aims to positively influence future generations and open space in the industry for women and non-binary people. With this goal in mind, she teamed up with DJ Frizzy D to create the LGBTQ+ collective of DJs, Hunnisuckle.
