Flohio — United Kingdom
Flohio (AKA Funmi Ohio) is the hottest grime artist of the moment. The British-Nigerian artist, rapper and songwriter from South London builds on the blueprint of UK rap and pulls in references that span the brelectronic music. Her single Watchout was dubbed Best New Music by Pitchfork, while her first EP solidified her reputation as one of the UK's most important genre-bending voices. She was an obvious choice for the prestigious Sound of 2019 and the likes of Modeselektor, Mahalia, Nao and The Streets lined up to work with Flohio, who delivers a potent live show on her own.
