Song of the Day: Hectic – Manu Crooks (ft. J Emz)

After racking up close to 500K streams in just over two weeks and support from the likes of Ebro at Beats 1, MANU CROOKS and J Emz drop the latest joint ‘Hectic’

Taking his sound international, Manu Crooks has earned his stripes in the UK and the U.S. He’s previously been highlighted by i-D, The Fader and Pigeons & Planes and had Australian tours with both Stormzy and Tory Lanez. He’s received major support with the likes of Charlie Sloth, DJ Target, Zane Lowe and Ebro. Meanwhile, J Emz and ONE FOUR have been spun into UK headlights throughout 2019 thanks to their live shows with Octavian and cosigns from UK music visionaries Skepta and Dave. Though both artists come from Western Sydney, the collab offers geninuine similarities to the roots and understanding of the UK trap world that it finds inspiration in. The reocrd sees two worlds merge into one: Polynesian crew ONEFOUR’s drill and UK trap inspired style – talking about their real life experiences in highly neglected areas of their neighbourhood, and African-Australian Manu Crooks’ internationally recognised sound and lyrics – swerving genres, styles, and trends and touching on broader aspects of his world and lifestyle.

This collaboration is deeper than the music itself. Bringing the two sub-genres together not only showcases the diversity of the music coming out of Western Sydney, but also the unity amongst the Australian urban scene.

Song of the Day: Quavo – Deep Green

Smashing close to 200k views in a matter of weeks, 70k streams, plus huge support from the likes of DJ Target and BBC Sheffield, ‘Quavo’ is yet another consistent release from one of Steel City’s finest…

DEEP GREEN collabs with his fellow Sheffield comrade Coco for the production. The two have a long history in music, both emerging in the local scene at a similar time and rapidly taking hold of their city before majorly breaking through in their own lanes on a national and international scale.

Whilst ‘Quavo’ first made an appearance on the ‘6 Years Deep’ album, the track has now been released as a single along with the visuals and is an exceptional representation of the star. Clever punchlines, intricate flows, confidence in his delivery of melodic singing/rap alongside harder, weighty bars plus his ability to create records wrapped around relatable subject matters have made him a vehicle for UK Rap, in fact, such is the case that his ever-growing fanbase are even known as his ‘passengers’ rather than fans, as they join him on his journey.

Already a regular at tipping millions of streams and views, DEEP GREEN has paid his dues, successfully smashing the circuit with freestyles, including his notable ‘Fire In The Booth’ for Charlie Sloth, and the endless shows supporting artists including Skrapz, M Huncho & Yxng Bane. His inclusion for Toddla T’s BBC Radio 1Xtra Live Lounge with DJ Target and the endless radio support are mere indicators to his undeniably exciting future and whilst the ceremonious applause and limelight are of course welcomed, it’s the depth in lyrical ability and his captivating character that keeps more passengers jumping on board with the Deep Green journey.
