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.
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.
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!

It’s been a loooong time since this guy appeared on NEW LEASE MUSIC but KING BLITZ returns with a very exciting new collaboration with Penacho Beats entitled ‘That’s Real’.
Blitz comes through with an incredibly emotional verse over some acoustic-soul production, while Penacho do what does do best — pull out the bass.
The comeback track is taken from the Indiana rapper’s forthcoming mixtape, schedule for release in March via iTunes and Apple Music.
With a sound and style that’s all his own, armed with an extra helping of swagger and boundless enthusiasm, KING BLITZ became one of the most talked about up and coming hip-hop artists when he was barely twenty years old. He subsequently appeared on tracks with his peers, such as YMCMB and KE ON THE TRACK.
Check out the video for ‘That’s Real.’
