New Track: Prayers For Life – Ironik (ft. K Koke)

Producer, DJ and Rapper, IRONIK links up with one of the UK’s biggest Rap exports, K Koke for new single ‘Prayers For Life’.

The collaboration comes as no surprise as IRONIK has been dropping impressive music featuring the cream of UK talent throughout his career including records with Skepta, Chip, Wiley, Wretch 32 and most recently with JME, Fekky and even went Stateside with Snoop Dogg for 2017 release ‘Tuff’.

Produced by Lizzy Beats, ‘Prayers For Life’ is an honest lyrical insight to both rappers journeys. With a retrospective narrative, the pair delve into the blessings, mistakes and hardships that they’ve encountered and how it’s shaped them and their lives. With the sleek visuals set in a church, the cutaways to balaclava clad women and dark close ups of onlookers represent the elements of hardship and hope that are explored in the record.

Whilst IRONIK has a lengthy list of musical achievements as an artist that include a number five official chart position, a top five single, a top ten single, a top ten album and over a million record sales, he is also a hugely successful international DJ that has regular stints in clubbing capitals such as Dubai, Japan and all across Europe. His producer credits include tracks for Tinie Tempah, Chip & Wiley

Premiered on Tim Westwood’s Capital Xtra show, ‘Prayers For Life’ is out now on all DSP’s. Check out the video for the track below:

New Track: Let It Go – Jo Cocco ❨ft HAM the Illustrator, MC Solomon & Hughdem❩

French-born London/based producer, multi-instrumentalist and session player JO COCCO released his first solo project via his new production company Joozzy Records, following international success after having collaborated and toured with renowned acts including Aloe Blacc and Gentleman (on Imperfection), Max Romeo, Sly and Robbie, Sara Lugo.

Wanting to face new challenges, JO COCCO relocated to the UK in 2017 where he recently produced The Wise Bloods latest single Turn The Tide (featured on radio BBC4).

As a well-established Reggae and Blues producer as well as guitarist, Jo’s expansion to Hip Hop was just a matter of time and a long term goal of his. He wrote, composed and produced an extremely catchy summer vibes track ‘Let It Go’, mixing Blues with Hip-Hop, influenced by the 70s/80s and guitar sounds reminiscent of BB King.

The song has come a long way since Jo started recording the beat in 2016/2017 in France. It was only in London that he finally found the voices he was looking for. Supporting the local Hip- Hop scene, Jo enlisted three emerging London rap talents: Ham The Illustrator, a Namibian-born rapper, activist and creative who also designed the cover art to ‘Let It Go’; MC Solomon who is a regular performer in the UK live scene and Hughdem, who forms part of the well-established Brixton Hip Hop collective AndWhat (featured on IAmHipHop).

Together they finessed ‘Let It Go’. Check out the video for the track below:
