21 year-old South Londoner Huntar is the twisted pop/R&B producer and vocalist whose recently released Bittar Mixtape proves that skill and creativity is definitely not something he's lacking in. With a cast of producers including FTSE, Jay Prince, Eagles For Hands and Youngs Teflon (a list of talent that you should already have on your eyes on), the five-track mixtape has already received praise from the likes of (ex) Radio 1 big dog Zane Lowe. All things considered, we thought it was about time we got to know him a little more as we treat you to an exclusive track from his forthcoming EP dropping 4th May, that was given its first play last night with BBC Radio 1's Annie Mac. 2, 4, 6, 8, we appreciate… Huntar!
