New Music Video: Ingredients – Coco (ft. Scrufizzer)

The Oliver Brian-directed visuals for the track, ‘Ingredients’ blend the hook’s literal and metaphorical meanings, with COCO joining a host of chefs in the kitchen and whipping up a storm, before joining Scrufizzer on a bar-filled shopping run. The video culminates with both MCs kicking off their own after-hours cooking session, mixing their chosen ingredients to create the perfect dish.

Bringing an updated twist on grime’s blueprint the banger, released earlier this month, unleashes a taste of the classic grime sound, with COCO and Scrufizzer trading rapid-fire flows over a distorted bassline and full-bodied drums, courtesy of Toddla T. Cooking up bars that explore realness in the scene, COCO represents Sheffield to the fullest and West Ealing MC Scrufizzer peppers ‘Ingredients’ with his trademark skippy flow – turning up the heat on the track’s second verse.

‘Ingredients’ brings to the boil a new Yorkshire and London connection, spicing up the original grime formula over a beat that will sure go down as one of 2017’s most relished grime performances – solidifying Coco’s reputation as one of the genre’s most underrated stars.

New Music Video: Not Alone – ShadowCV6

As played by DJ Semtex on Friday night’s BBC 1xtra show, ‘Not Alone’ is the poignant new single from emerging SHADOWCV6, which bravely sheds light on male mental health. For too long male mental health has been a silent subject, especially in the UK where 76% of suicides are by men and it is the biggest cause of death for men under 35, with 12.5% of men in the UK suffering from one of the common mental health disorders.

With the likes of Jamal Edwards, Stormzy and Professor Green all recently opening up about depression, SHADOWCV6’s mission to destroy the stigma surrounding male mental health comes at a vital time.

Speaking of the latest single, the Coventry rapper explains: “As someone who suffers with anxiety and depression, I understand how people feel alone and like no one can relate to what they are going through. This song is a way of showing people that they are Not Alone and you can talk about it. A problem shared is a problem halved”

The young artist offers some passionate bars on the topic that rise in intensity as the Bolus produced track is accompanied by some glossy guitar-flavoured production….so take a sneak peek of the video for ‘Not Alone’.
