New for 2020: Aitch

Manchester’s Golden Boy, 19-year-old rapper Aitch is one of the most promising acts of 2020 with artistic integrity, fun and catchiness at the nucleus of his singles.

New for 2020 introduces our top predictions of the hottest new emerging live bands and musicians for those looking to find the best new acts to listen to and see live in 2020.


There couldn’t be a more favourable moment to be a Manchester-based MC, the city has been endlessly churning out rap talents in recent years but few quite like Aitch. Hailing from New Moston, an area in North Manchester, Aitch’s artistry derives from the sheer proximity to the UK’s epicentre and breeding ground for all forms of underground bass music– whether it’s rap, grime, dubstep or drum & bass.

Making a name for yourself in your hometown isn’t always easy but to do so at 19 and then go on to repeatedly impress audiences, subsequently attracting national attention proves one thing– Aitch is a gifted talent. Aitch has already far exceeded his own expectations following early support from grime stalwarts such as Wiley and Stormzy. Like many of the people around him, rap was a talent that came by chance but taking each moment in his stride, particularly following the response to his first video ‘Straight Rhymez,’ Aitch is ready to take his craft to the next level.

Aitch has just released his newest single “Taste (Make It Shake)” via Since 93 which is currently at #8 in the Official Charts. Following on from his smash hit features this year, Strike A Pose with Young T & Bugsey reaching #19 on The UK official Chart, Bugzy Malone’s Kilos which debuted at #20 & Russ & Tion Wayne with Keisha & Becky (Remix) reaching Top 40.

Having been hotly tipped as one of 1Xtra’s Hot for 2019 artists and anticipated to have a massive 2020, Aitch prepares to solidify just why he’s the most exciting artist prospect this year; with the infectious Taste (Make It Shake).

Highlighting his lyrical ability and as always showing a cheeky, playful side to the Manchester MC, Taste (Make It Shake) has proved once more, Aitch makes nothing but undeniably memorable songs, catching the attention and support of the likes of Annie Mac (Radio 1), Kenny Allstar (BBC Radio 1Xtra), Rob Bruce (Capital Xtra), Wiley, Ghetts & Stormzy. Aitch’s breakout journey in the last few months has positioned as a newcomer to be excited about this year.

Having the most liked Daily Duppy ever – now sitting on 6.3 million views – his breakout freestyle, ‘Straight Rhymez,’ on 12 million views, Taste (Make It Shake) is yet another reason why Aitch is one of the most promising acts of 2019 with artistic integrity, fun and catchiness at the nucleus of his singles.
