Song of the Day: Kill – Henny Knightz

HENNY KNIGHTZ makes his entry on the blog a blazing concept single, titled ‘Kill’.

The accompanied video features the Hackney Avant Garde Rapper and producer forcibly ridding himself of habitual destructive behaviours. The video portrays a more likeable, attractive Henny Knightz, cleansed of his superficial imperfections but thwarted by the anarchic ticks of a frustrated emotional hooligan.

Henny Knightz is one half of the seminal duo The Knighthood Society alongside rapper Nicki Knightz. This is his first solo release since ‘Track Red’ back in 2019.

Toms One Drops Summer-Ready Track, ‘All I Need Is You’

Following his entry on NEW LEASE MUSIC with single, ‘Hey’ (Ft. Lauren May), which is currently the blog’s Song of the Month, DJ TOM ONE is back with his latest single, ‘All I Need Is You’, featuring Georgie Wells.

Boasting perky electro dance synths, perfect for the upcoming summer months, ‘All Need Is You’ is a song about appreciating the one you love – not necessarily a significant other – but close friends and/or family who were there through the toughest times. The three-and-a-half minute piece is further uplifted by Birmingham singer Georgie Wells’ perkily soul/pop vocals.

Inspired by artists such as Calvin Harris, Jess Glyne, Clean Bandit and Klingande, ‘All I Need Is You’ was originally conceived in 2014 whilst Tom was studying music at the University of Manchester. After the song went through many transformations, in summer 2018, Georgie Wells was enlisted to provide the vocals and the track was finally completed in late last year.

So here’s your chance to check out Tom One’s single, ‘All I Need Is You’, now available on your favourite download/streaming sites.

 

 

Song of the Day: Come Again – JD Cliffe

JD CLIFFE has been causing a scene in the UK rap game for over the past year. Having shared the stage with Kojo Funds and Smoke Boys, the smooth rapper returns with his first single of the year ‘Come Again’.

JD’s smooth, melodic flow has carried him from strength to strength.

BBC 6 Music-Approved Duo Betty Pulls A Fast One Shares Upcoming Single, ‘PlantHunter’

After receiving a firm backing from the likes of BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson, alternative electro/pop outfit BETTY PULLS A FAST ONE (BPFO) are back with full force for their first release of the year titled ‘PlantHunter’.

An airy bed of lo-fi electronics introduces the three-and-a-half minute piece, providing the perfect platform for the delightfully askew vocal performance – which puts you in the mind of 80s pop band Orange Juice and 90s alternative rock band Pulp – to claim centre stage.

BPFO consists of Mal R and Jon K, who came under the radar with their 2016 debut song ‘Today I am Prince’, followed up by their debut album ‘Dressed in Birds’ released in 2018, which chronicles unrequited love and how the planet seems to be set on course for a downward spiral.

The album included their first official single ‘It’s Her Kindness (That Turns Me On)’ which was played on BBC 6 Music and described as ‘classic songwriting’. Tracks from the album have since featured on Lonely Oak Radio, Wolfman Radio and Radio Candy.

As well as providing vocals for BPFO, vocalist and songwriter, Malo Ramsoir has appeared on Hungary’s national Petőfi TV and has also recorded with musicians in the UK, Argentina, Hungary and Spain. As vocalist, he also makes one half of the electronic duo, LiiN.

Songwriter and musician Jon K also has another project up his sleeve with an instrumental collection of music under the name S.W.O.R.N.

Available on all major music platforms from 25th March, ‘PlantHunter’ is the first release from their album, coming out later this year.

Brixton rapper SNEAKBO releases his first single of 2020, ‘Love Is A Gamble’ featuring Disturbing London’s Kida Kudz.

‘Love Is A Gamble’ is a perfect introduction of what’s to come from Sneakbo this year. Fusing rap, afrobeats and dancehall melodies, all which Sneakbo is known for innovating. He is recognised as one of the first UK artists to create this unique sound that has taken over the UK in a huge way.
