EP Review: 24 HRS – King Blitz

On first inspection KING BLITZ‘s latest EP, ’24 HRS’ seems one of those sets that you kick back and just veg out with some friends, but after a few listens, his lyrics eventually resonates with the soul as each track reveals his ongoing struggles with life.

Accompanying the emotive lyrics, is the downtempo trap drive – a trademark he’s known for by his fans – which gets more attention-grabbing further along the production. Occasional elements of the angelic piano keys and the seamless flow of the flute, offer some lightness to the density of the bassline.

With a flow that works in unison with the harmonious arrangements, KING BLITZ has, yet again, pulled off another slick project; hard not to like. Check him out below:

Upcoming Release: Smokestack City – Billow Cloud

Billy Lash – aka BILLOW CLOUD – has a touch of nostalgia, packaged in a spine-tingling new wave pop/rock single entitled ‘Smokestack City’.

Reminiscing on Summer holidays in the midWest of the United States as a child, the Londoner penned the single at his Streatham home, paying homage to the industrial city of Gray, Indiana. The accompanied visuals show the footage of the city and Warren Dunes in Michigan, taken on a family vacation.

Over the last year, BILLOW CLOUD has been a regular on London’s gig scene, and is set to perform this Saturday at Kensington’s Finborough Arms in London .

Here’s your chance to taste his brand…have a listen to ‘Smokestack City,’ out tomorrow on all digital download platforms.

New Track: WYD – King Blitz (ft. Kris J)

Rising star KING BLITZ continues to tease his second offering, 24HRS EP with new sounds.

This time around, he joined forces with on Atlanta’s upcoming spitter Kris J for his latest track ‘WYD’. Produced by Blitz, both artists deliver a slick debut collaboration with Kris J demolishing the second verse.

Go ahead and check out ‘WYD’. Do you like what you hear? Well there’s more to come from Red Diamond’s Artist KING BLITZ.

Album Review: Eight Days A Week – King Blitz

After a loooong spell away from the scene, KING BLITZ came back bolder with track, ‘That’s Real’, featured on NEW LEASE MUSIC back in January. Now the Indiana wordsmith is keeping the momentum at full speed with his ten-track album, ‘Eight Days A  Week’, released late last month.

A downtempo and menacing bass dominates and runs riot in the latest project, where this young emcee slams down his flow at varying speed. Somehow this smooth operator always comes out on top as his spats seamlessly weave throughout in every single track – well I guess that’s why he’s called KING BLITZ!

There’s some real gems in this set for those who are into alternative hip-hop; go and check it!
