Song of the Day: Stop Me – Franko Fraize (ft. Alex Joseph)

Added straight on to the Spotify ‘Grime Shutdown’ playlist, FRANKO FRAIZE released stunning new single ‘Stop Me’, alongside his highly anticipated ‘Lights & Colour’ EP.

Proving to be quite the musical enigma, FRANKO FRAIZE takes influence from Hip-Hop and Indie, which is expressed through his heartfelt and moving rap delivery. Always distinguishable by his archetypically British accent, his voice is undeniably recognisable. His charismatic charm reached into the soul with bold disposition for his latest records as FRANKO FRAIZE begins the project with his thought evoking track ‘Side By Side’ ft Alex Joseph. Connecting listeners through the engaging message of growth, perspective, empathy and understanding, it was the first gem to be released from his EP and was paired with heartwarmingly nostalgic visuals. A one to watch, this track caught the attention of DJ Mistajam who said: “I’ve been keeping my eye on him for a while but this is possibly his best track to date!”.

‘Stop Me’ is a real strong contender for being the top track on the EP. Bound in energy and no-nonsense determination, the record is an instant mood booster that gives a solid kick up the arse in terms of both sound and lyricism.

New Music Video: Lines – Franko Fraize (ft. Great Skies)

Taking you back to the days of old school garage raves, Reebok Classics and gold chains, FRANKO FRAIZE reveals the retro visuals to his latest single ‘Lines’, alongside Great Skies via his VEVO channel.

The blurry video captures the bright lights of London’s skylines and the essence of the night life that used to fill the city, while complementing the laid back garage style beat from Great Skies and Franko’s unmistakable vocal.

The track has generated support on BBC Introducing across Kent, Norfolk and Suffolk and Franko has just played a show with UKG legends Oxide & Nuetrino. He will also be performing in Ipswich, Swindon and Norwich at Tropico alongside Ghetts this month.

First broadcast by BBC Introducing in Kent, ‘Lines’ draws on influence from the UK electronic music scene and showcases Frankos’ vocal delivery over a melodic laid back beat from the Great Skies. The lyrics detail the exhilarating feeling of throwing shapes on a night out until everything starts to blur. Known as the “voice for the everyday”, he talks tales of everyday life that resonates across the board. His lyrics and presence are archetypally English and strike a chord with many a listener for their charm and wit.

Last year was phenomenal for the charismatic rapper from Thetford, seeing him support Rudimental and Chase and Status as well as completing a busy festival period that included the 1xtra stage at Reading & Leeds festival.

With an E.P alongside Great Skies due for an imminent release, a massive collaboration in the pipeline and a wealth of support already behind him, FRANKO FRAIZE presents ‘Lines’.
