Cell7

The Icelandic hip hop scene may still be young and

small but Cell7—a pioneer of the genre and a rare female presence in a male dominated world—is not just one of its steady fixtures but also one of its brightest stars. As a veteran of the Icelandic rap scene, Cell7 is constantly cited as an inspiration for established artists and women just breaking into the genre. She returns this year with her sophomore solo album, “Is anybody listening?” and proves yet again that she is one of the most original voices out there. Cell7´s second solo offering exudes the confidence of an established artist but also exhibits the vitality of a growing one. She shines in this tour de force, exhibiting new range and versatility as she not only raps but sings and produces some of her own tracks. There is real soul, strength and insight here,

all of it steeped in infectious grooves and melodies and a full frontal arsenal of rhymes that show that Cell7 is ready to decimate any preconceptions of what Icelandic music should sound like.

“There’s no one in the Icelandic rap scene quite like Cell7. While other artists pair up with DJs and favour trap-adjacent beats, the Filipino-Icelandic rhymer fronts a funk band. While she doesn’t shy away from the political statements of some of her contemporaries, she also seems unbelievably casual and comfy, ready to go wild.”

Dazed Digital, Meet the women running Iceland’s rap scene, Lior Philips

“Cell7 is by far the best female rapper I have seen. Her show was energetic and her

rhymes were fresh over some dope beats. There was plenty of crowd dancing and

singing along, making it one of my favorite shows of the night.”

WCRX Chicago, Iceland Airwaves Day 2, Kellie Wyatt
