Making Waves: Aitch

Northern soul: Aitch

This week’s hottest brand new act...

KEY TRACK: Straight Rhymez

LABEL/MANAGEMENT: Northern Quarterz
TWITTER: @OfficialAitch

WHO: Part of the Northern Quarterz collective, Aitch is a teenage rapper from Manchester.

WHAT: Bars with attitude. Straddling genres, Aitch’s cocksure songs are defined by his thick, rapid flow.

WHERE: Manchester.


It all started with breakout track Straight Rhymez, which was initially uploaded after a session drinking and spitting bars in a park. Subsequently recorded with producer Pezmo, it has over 1m plays on Spotify and the video has hit 3 million views.


GRM Daily and BBC Radio 1Xtra soon joined the party. Aitch’s freestyle on Kenny Allstar’s show has also hit the magic million on YouTube.


Aitch told Sauce Network he’s chasing more millions in a recent interview. He also explained his ethos: “I’m not trying to be a grime artist or a rap artist, I’m just trying to be Aitch.”
