New Track: Shine – Ashley Shakur

ashley-shakur-shine

Having kicked off 2016 with the release of his debut EP, London-based experimental emcee ASHLEY SHAKUR continues to make waves in the British music scene with his follow-up project Hare Colours.

Combining his inherent poetic wit, with clever wordplay and an effortless flow, the EP sees Ash rap over a selection of beats from different producers, showcasing his versatility as an artist.
Featured single Shine kicks off the EP as a statement of intent for the young artist. Rapping over a languid beat, supported by a deep rolling bass and phased guitar, Ash’s positive attitude radiates throughout the track as he predicts his bright future “you can’t deny my success, you can’t doubt my future”.

An all-round creative, Ash took his first foray into music when he was creating illustrations whilst listening to classic hip hop instrumentals from the likes of Outkast, Nas and Mobb Deep. He takes full control in his artistic direction, designing his own artwork and clothes and, co-directing his visuals.

Bringing originality back to music, Ash is not afraid to think outside the box and succeeds in bringing a fresh, unorthodox style the British hip-hop scene with his unique cadence and positive storytelling. Tackling current topics and issues in today’s world, Ash’s thought-provoking material has caught the attention of underground radio stations such as Reprezent and Radar and the likes of Noisey, Earmilk, Complex and Indie Shuffle.

Filling the void with music that he feels the current hip-hop scene is lacking, Hare Colours comes as a refreshing body of work and the perfect project to cement him as one of the standout artists in the British music scene.

So get him in your system…have a listen to Shine.
