About Kirby Forest
According to Notion, Kirby Forest is “blessed with a talent for tongue-twisting rhymes” and has “a classic sounding flow”. High Snobiety calls his sound “a heady mix between the Black Lodge from Twin Peaks and a freestyle showcase of burgeoning MC’s”.
After an upbringing in London, Kirby Forest moved to Atlanta as a 10-year-old and discovered hip hop. Inspired by the city’s rap scene - and energized by the sunshine - creativity sparked and he started writing. His dad found his journals filled with lyrics and brought him to the legendary Tree Sounds Studios, where he ended up staying for twelve hours - recording three tracks.
“After that studio session, I bought one of those cheap USB microphones and started a Youtube channel. I practised my flow by rapping on other artists’ tracks, and in order to get views, I named the videos stuff like ‘official song’ and ‘official instrumental’. I mean, it worked, I got views. Some people got mad, but a lot of people actually gave me great, constructive feedback” Kirby Forest says and laughs.
Back in London, he built a home studio, linked up with
the producer Tambala and found his own sound - a laid back, jazzy kind of hip hop, with bassy and alternative vibes. With lyrics about goals, motivation and observations from his everyday life, his debut EP ‘Space’ - that also included the hyped debut track ‘Acid Jazz’ - was released earlier this year.
‘Wurld’ is a motivational song about going out there and making things happen for oneself.
“‘Wurld’ is about making the world your oyster. My mindset is that anyone can get it if they put the work in. Life has a lot to offer and this song’s message is simply to go out there and get it cracking” says Kirby Forest.
With a gentle mix between old school, laid-back flow and a newer kind of trap triplets flow - ‘Wurld’ is a mellow, alternative hip hop track filled with deep bass beats and vibes for days.
