Obsidian Cane Presses The ‘Reset’ Button On Latest EP

Giving old skool UK Garage a new lease of life, producer/artist OBSIDIAN CANE’s latest three-track EP, ‘Reset’ came along by complete chance…

The tracks on the EP were originally separate projects for three artists – Bryonii, I Am Born and Stacey Pierre. The plan to release the summer bangers came to a halt when the Covid-19 pandemic struck the UK back in March.

Obsidian explains: “My plan was to complete each project then go back to performing at live events. Then the world went into lockdown and everything changed. Music events were cancelled, clubs closed, and social distancing gave me some tough decisions to make. I had a serious discussion about quitting the music industry for good, but my music promoter convinced me the Covid-19 lockdown was the best time to release new music as a new artist. Since everything felt reset and new, I used that energy and produced the three songs and title the EP.”

‘Reset’ EP may be the first solo release from Obsidian Cane, a seemingly unknown artist, who received over 13,000 monthly listeners on Spotify, but he’s certainly no novice to the UK underground dance scene. The Londoner scored success with club hit (I Need A Rhythm) as Garage duo KP with UK Garage producer Paul Benjamin and has performed live at 51st State music festival as KP.

Away from his partner-in-crime Paul Benjamin, Obsidian has other projects up his sleeve: he has produced music for artist in development Warner, EMI and Parlophone, as well as producing music for popular TV shows, including Get Up Stand Up and EastEnders.

‘Reset’ EP is now available on various download/streaming platforms.

Ambush Brings Drama With New Track, ‘Eastenders’ + New Video

Northwest London rapper, AMBUSH A.K.A Ambush Buzzworl, slams down the first track from his forthcoming, highly anticipated mixtape ‘A.M.B’, which is set to drop on May 15th.

‘Eastenders’ is a dark track that has Ambush spitting bars about drama on the streets, sending a clear message out, that fights and wars are just not worth it especially over a girl. Ambush adds a catchy bar that repeats throughout the track ‘Beef over gyal is mad’ over a cold, melancholy, polished beat.

The video is more like a movie, telling three different stories with Ambush as the narrator and some famous faces acting such as Scorcher, Paigey Cakey, Vic Santoro and Jasmine Jobson.

Ambush says “The song is named Eastenders in comparison to the drama that happens on the soap which usually stems from matters of the heart. The story is actually a compilation of three different stories where people I know found themselves in between pride, jealousy, love and hate; and the consequences of their heated actions turned out extreme”.

‘Eastenders’ gives fans a little taster of what they can expect from the brand-new mixtape, setting the bar high, whilst giving fans a taster of what’s to come from the full-length project which they have been eagerly anticipating for a while.

Ambush arrived onto the scene in 2017 with his ‘Sauce Freestyle’, followed by ‘Already’. These tracks built him recognition and more singles followed including ‘Jumpy’, the remix to this track features Skepta & Chip and ‘My Size’ featuring Ms Banks. He has also recently featured on Poundz remix track ‘Opp Thot’ along with Snap Capone & Yxng Bane.

You just have to look at his streaming numbers to see his progression -the Jumpy Remix and Man Can’t tracks have both amassed over ten millions streams on DSP’s.

The mixtape is available to pre-order now…but before you head off, check out Ambush’s video for single, ‘Eastenders.’
