A.M. SNiPER TAKES YOU TO THE TROPICS WITH NEW TRACK ‘YEA YEA YEA’

Currently on his European Summer Tour, A.M. SNiPER has still found time to drop his brand new joint ‘Yea Yea Yea’ and the video is giving us all the summer feels which has been watched over quarter million times in its first two days online. Produced by the hottest duo in the UK right now, Da Beatfreakz are responsible for a string of recent chart hits including ‘Motorola’ ft. Dappy, Swarmz & Deno, Cadet and Deno’s ‘Advice’ and Swarmz ft Tion Wayne ‘Bally’, and now A.M. SNiPER blesses one of their productions for another wavey smash.

Premiering with DJ Kenny Allstar on BBC Radio 1Xtra the melodic, vibrant and meandering beat is scattered with snares and tropical synths that are given a spirited, confident and slick vocal topping from A.M. SNiPER. Making a departure from the deeper, ominous hip-hop vibe of previous singles ‘RUN” and Supreme’, which have collectively been viewed almost four million times on YouTube and have a cool seven million Spotify streams between them, A.M. SNiPER is a master of capturing a vibe and ‘Yea Yea Yea’ is clear evidence of his artistic talents as he dips in and out of varying flows, pace and tone to document his lavish lifestyle as a rapper, producer and entrepreneur.

Performing at Europe’s biggest summer stages including Plug Nation Festival and Kandi Fest, A.M. SNiPER has already hit the stage alongside Rae Sremmurd, Gunna, Yxng Bane, D-Block Europe, Fredo and Dappy in the last month and is still yet to grace the line up at Fire on the Beach (Malia) and Ibiza Rocks.

Check out the video for the A.M. SNiPER‘s summer banger below:

SOTD: Frenzy Takes A Stand On Knife Crime In ‘Murder Mile’

Hackney rapper FRENZY delivers his track entitled ‘Murder Mile into today’s hotspot’; a gritty, real yet modern depiction of the issues with knife crime Hackney are currently facing.

The latest offering serves as the title track off his long awaited ‘Murder Mile’ EP, which as a whole is a statement about the real life impact of knife crime in London, as well as a positive look towards the future.

With as many gritty and dark cuts as there are upbeat and bouncy ones, ‘Murder Mile’ is a true reflection of the ying and the yang of what life presents, and with big features from the likes of Sam Wise, Knucks, Kadiata and many more, it’s set to make a big statement this year.

With Drill continuing to top the charts, and many of these artists having grown up alongside FRENZY, the unapologetic ‘Murder Mile’ EP aims to shine a light on the gruesome reality that is only seen by the people living in these poverty stricken areas that are commonly glorified in music today.

Check out the gripping video for the single below…
