Miles Glyphers is the Ivory Coast-born, Sydney-raised young rapper currently showing both his hometown and the internet what he's made of. No matter the lyrical content, the 19-year-old's flow is laid back and honest, with a warm quality that clearly filters through from his environment. Having impressed us with his emotional They Are Free, we are more than pleased to present the premiere of his Sound of Fractures-produced new release, Out Of Time. Taken from his debut mixtape, Twisted Youth (out May 13), this is a personal story of love and loss set to the beautiful sounds of an acoustic guitar. "I thought me and my girl could build a future that early in life," he explains. "In the end it didn't work out. But no matter that you do, when you have a connection with someone that deep, it will always be a part of you." Get to know Miles Glyphers. He will go far.
