Following up the enormous response to their critically-praised self-titled debut EP earlier this year, Reading-based collective OSP have now returned to unveil the Riser Dub remix of the collection’s standout hit ‘Fill It Up’.

While the original track placed itself as a bold and pulsing club anthem, the Riser Dub rework sees the rhythm broadened, giving it a more atmospheric feel throughout. With the group’s distinctive lyrical flow still holding the hook and drive behind the cut, this new offering showcases a more groove-focused direction for the collective.


First formed in 2014, the Reading-based brotherhood OSP - comprised of Esa Kwame (rapper, beat maker), J Blackz (rapper, singer-songwriter, beat maker), Silqe (rapper, beat maker), and Subject (producer, engineer) - has always strived to become a positive force within the UK’s hip-hop community. Originally standing for Only Speak Positive, the four-piece earned their mantra through a string of bold and vibrant cuts that looked to deliver a powerful message of tolerance and respect through their work. While also regularly collaborating with other artists as well as solo material in recent years, the synergy between the artists has been unparalleled ever since they first came together, as they look to deliver a sound that is lacking from the commercial world.

After a short hiatus in recent years, they reformed in the summer of 2021 with the goal of bringing their music to a wider and more engaged audience. Fusing raw and organic production with a smooth and progressive flow, their newest material continues that forward-thinking approach they have always pursued within their aesthetic, garnering a texture that borrows from both retro and contemporary influences alike.

2022 is set to become OSP’s most prolific year to date. With a whole host of dynamic releases arriving in the coming months, their vision of a more diverse direction within the mainstream hip-hop scene is finally maturing, and they aim to place themselves front and centre of this fresh and captivating movement.


Riser is a platform for new music and artists. It is an ethical, not for profit music label created by Reading-based music charity, Readipop, supported by Arts Council England.
