New Track: Overtime – Adian Coker

Following the recent release of ’24 Carat’, ADIAN COKER shares his brand new effort ‘Overtime’, the second single from his forthcoming EP ‘Buena Vistas’, to be released June 2nd on Kitsuné.

‘Overtime’ certainly reflect his busy schedule as the three-minute inspirational smasher documents the long hours he spent investing in, not just only his dreams and aspirations, but for others from disadvantaged backgrounds.

The London-based spitter has always been involved in community work – from working at Youth Clubs, participating in workshops for various charities to supporting social causes such #BlackLivesMatter last year and recently the #ZeroDiscrimination movement for which he recorded a touching video poem that the United Nation on released on Zero Discrimination day (watch here.)

But before you head off, have a listen to ‘Overtime.’

Song of the Day: Aim – Adian Coker (ft. Bluey Robinson)

Adian Coker

ADIAN COKER takes Aim and shows what a true marksman he is on his brand new single taken from forthcoming E.P Connect.

A futuristic galaxy of electro synths orbit around an explosive drum beat making way for the entrance of a rock fuelled hook. The larger-than-life emcee takes a strong lyrical stance on the three-and-a-half banger, a quality that his fans will already be accustomed to – however there’s something notably different about this record. There’s a relaxed edge to the track, aided by the smooth R&B/soulful hook from Bluey Robinson, making it the perfect introduction to his EP.

In recent years, the South Londoner has earned an array of support from some of the most impressive music platforms. Each of them delve into his musical output giving the big thumps up to his ingenuity, depth and ambition yet there’s always been an air of mystery surrounding him and his music.

Connect is a very deliberate release, offering a side to ADIAN COKER that hasn’t been revealed before. The release gives an understanding and a much more upbeat and playful element to his music without any compromise on quality.

So here’s your chance to take aim to check out the single.

EP Review: Work With Me – Workerz

workersz EP cover

Work with Me EP is the third release within a year from French producer  Jean-Patrick Simonetti, better known as WORKERZ.

Released late last month Simonetti, who formerly made one half of experimental dance group Les Petits Pilous, cleverly give Detroit-style (and almost tribal) club bangers that bold, hip-hop attitude with the help from (and well executed) by rappers  Gita and Adian Coker.

We may be in winter now, but this four-track package serves well to brighten up those dark nights.

Work With Me is now available via iTunes.
