Hailing from my neck of the woods – Hackney, baby! – FRENZY comes right through with his first single of 2019 entitled ‘Caesar’, taken from upcoming project ‘Heat of The Moment’.
Produced by Eyes, this new track is nothing short of his trademark – combining a multitude of genres to create a unique and dark hip-hop vibe – which underpins the east London rapper’s matter-of-fact lyricism.
The youngster’s catalogue of music, which reflects his life struggles and seeing close ones locked up or killed in his community, has raised eyebrows from major music tastemakers as well as generating loyal support from BBC 1Xtra DJs Jeremiah Asiamah and Robert Bruce.
Hailed as a local celebrity for his charity work and a mentor for his music to young aspiring artists, FRENZY also runs a workshop called Fast Forward which provides free studio time, production and engineering, which this time has resulted in a compilation titled ‘Fast Forward Vol. 1’.
Check out his first drop of the year below:

Featuring a collection of tracks that could be appeasing to nostalgics of the old-school, London-based rapper/producer REDD TUNES slaps down his first project of the year, entitled ‘The Sickness.’
With loops of chill-out sounds that could be easily associated with Fila high tops (unlaced, of course), slick tracksuits complete with thick gold chains, this set pays homage to the real art of britcore and also expresses the concerns of the commercialisation of its parent – hip-hop – suppressing the realism of the sub-genre.
But there’s no chance of that as REDD TUNES and featured artists on this EP, are on a mission to keep the britcore vibe alive. The Sickness EP is a strong reminder that music is an extension of one’s expression – and not a commodity.
This set is definitely worth a trail; check it out here
